In Reply to: WM SETTLES - VA >ADAIR CO.,KY by cindy of 244

In my lineage is Benjamin Settles, present in Green Co in late 1700s, then 1801 he was in Westmoreland Co where he married Nancy Tupman. I believe Benjamin was born in Stafford Co VA. Nancy Tupman was d/o of Patsy Tupman and Capt John Tupman, Sea Capt in Rev War. He died @ sea, Benjamin & Nancy came into Green/Adair on the land patent which was awarded to Capt John Tupman. The Alsy Settles is mentioned in the
a little bio in Perrin's History of KY which I obtained on ILL. Nancy Tupman had 4 daughters in Green Co, Nanch died around 1818, I believe Benjamin Settles next marriage was to a Malinda Page in Adair, his final marriage was to the widow of David Smith. Settles left a large estate inventory in the Green Co Settlement Records micro
film, he died in 1837 or so, the settlement doesnt give exact date of death. Madeline
