John Benton; Will in Gates County 1785, sons Robert Foster, Jeremiah, Samuel

I'm looking for info on the Robert Foster BENTON who was listed as a son in the will of John BENTON in 1785 in Gates County, North Carolina. (Other mentions in this will were sons Jeremiah & Samuel, daughters Mary & Martha Benton, wife Mary and a grandson named John Benton.) I have not seen this will, only this abstract mentioning the legatees.

I'm very interested in this Robert Foster BENTON since my line is from a Samuel Foster BENTON. This Samuel was b. January 1856 in Scott County, Virginia. He was the son of Zachariah BENTON & Mary NUNN. Zachariah was b. abt 1822 in North Carolina and married in 1843 in Caswell County, North Carolina. Zachariah's father was William Thomas BENTON, b. abt 1799, possibly in Anson County, North Carolina. William married Dorothy Elizabeth GROOM/GROOME in 1820 in Caswell County.

I'm wondering if my William Thomas was a son of Robert Foster BENTON.

My line from William Thomas is:
