This is a follow-up message to the one I posted to you a few months ago regarding the descendants of Capt. John Mason the Elder.
You referred to the book Masons of Southside VA. There are two errors in the book that I am aware of. The first is Henry Mason, son of Christopher Mason and Sarah Chappell. Henry first married Rebecca Jeter, dau. of John Jeter in 1796 and secondly married Lizza (Elizabeth) Barnes in 1816. Ingersoll picked up Bolling Batte's Cards for this Henry Mason and has him as John Raines Mason's son who married Mary Smith June 1820. John Raines Mason DID have a son Henry who married Mary Smith, but he DID NOT marry Lizza Barnes. John Raines Mason gave lands in Surry Co. for his son Henry Mason. Henry Mason, son of Christopher had died by the time the 1820 property taxes were to be reported in Greensville Co.
Secondly, Batte and Ingersoll show William Mason who married Peggy Jones Hall as the son of Nathaniel and Judith Mason and that he had died by 1813. This William Mason was the son of Joseph Mason and Elizabeth Watson. He married Peggy Jones Hall a widow. Peggy was the daughter of Samuel Jones and Lillie Holloway of Sussex Co. Her brother was James Jones. In 1815 Peggy and William Mason and James Jones were selling lands in Brunswick Co. and again there is a reference to another deed in 1820 for this couple. In about 1840 (without checking my papers) James Jones Jr. gave lands to his Aunt Margaret Mason for love and affection in Brunswick Co.
Just thought I would let you know that there are source documents for the above. Everyone makes mistakes, but the first was a mighty big one in my ancestry.
