Fellow Researchers - would love help reconciling information from Jeanette Traynham Mason's 1989 book, "My Family" and later information on Traynhams of Virginia and South Carolina. Specifically:
Jeanette states there are bounty warrents for the following Traynhams regarding Rev. War Service:
Reuben, John Jr., David, Henry, Samuel, and Joshua Traynham.
I find none of this in the VA State Library in Richmond. Mason states they are listed in G. M. Brumbaugh's book of Rev. War records in VA, p. 272. Can anyone point me to an original (government) record for any of these names?
I have many land records for David Traynham of Caroline and Halifax, and he served as executor for Charles Traynham (d 1779) Does anyone have access to estate records before this time?
Many thanks for any and all help. Would love to correspond with anyone working on early Virginia Traynhams.
