I think you and I agree, Anna --- at least about John Huddleston and Elizabeth Charleton. If such a person existed and had sons named Daniel born 1715 and John born 1720, these would have been quite old to have fought in the Revolutionary War --- the men of those names who did fight in that war surely were born later than this.
If a Daniel Huddleston was married to a Mary Ball, where in Ball genealogies is there a record of this.

I'm not of a lineage that includes either of the David Huddlestons. Folks claim without proof that ARW vet John Huddleston was the husband of Sarah Brown and the father of James Huddleston (aka Hudelson) of Mifflin County, PA; I'm quite sure that's wrong also. The John Huddleston who received a land bounty grant in Lunenburg County, VA for ARW service obviously was not killed at Brandywine, as some claim.

Bottom line seems to be that John Huddleston/Elizabeth Charleton and their supposed eight sons must be considered notional, and not proven.
