The potential royal link I mentioned (at least, the one that wasn't White/Hungerford), I mentioned was through Elizabeth (Hay?) Taliaferro (b. 1694), Thomas Stribling I's wife, but that depends on Elizabeth's parentage. Firstly, is that the same potential royal link you mentioned? Secondly, the majority of sources I have managed to find point overwhelmingly to Elizabeth as the daughter of Francis Taliaferro and a Catlett, whereas only a small minority (based solely, it seems, on LDS records) of sites give her parentage as Col. John "The Ranger" Taliaferro and Sarah Smith (the latter being a descendent of Augustine Warner and therefore cousin to George Washington, Robert E. Lee, Merriweather Lewis, and Queen Elizabeth II). What have you managed to find out? My own family records indicate John and Sarah, but it is highly likely that this information was not known firsthand and was probably researched--perhaps mistakenly. Any help would be appreciated.
