My ancestor, Wm. LEDWELL, mentions in his will, my trusty friends, Richard and Daniel LOFLIN. William LEDWELL's property was in that part of Rowan Co. which became Davidson Co. His next neighbors to the east were Richard LOFLIN and Daniel LOFLIN. I am wondering if there were any marriages between these families.

On a plat map:
Richard's property is identified as Wm. HENSLEY to Richard LOFLIN 300 acres 1787 Then: Rich Mtn.

Another tract of Richard's: To Richard LOFLIN 300 acres 1786.

Daniel's property: to Daniel LOFLIN 100 acres 1799.

William LEDWELL'S property (looks like 'SEDWELL'): To William LEDWELL 150 acres 1790.
