Thank you Bill. I had looked at "The Handybook for Genealogists" by Everton Press. It states;
Lancaster Co was Northumberland Co and York Co prior to 1657.
[Northumberland was original shire 1648]
Fauquier was Prince William prior to 1759
Prince William was King George and Stafford prior to 1727
King George was Richmond and Westmoreland prior to 1720
Westmoreland was Northumberland Co pre 1653.
It seemed to me that at one time, a person could have lived in one place and years later be in another of above places without having relocated?
I find what appears to be same families [Surnames]living in Lancaster Co VA in mid 1600's that are also close neighbors in Fauquier Co in mid 1700's. They appear to me to have stayed close together through those many years.
I am not making any headway locating the parents, siblings or first wife and children of my William White born 10 Jan 1755 Fauquier Co VA per his Rev War pension application S 1735 VA. [ of course it was Pr. Wm Co in 1755 but Wm. no doubt knew that and did not want to rock the boat knowing the area was he was born was then called Fauq. Co.]
I think Edith Chapman White who married James Tucker and raised their family in Lincoln Co TN near where my William White relocated abt 1819 is his daughter by his unk.to me first marriage? She named a son William White Tucker and several of her children used middle name of White for her granddhildren. No one knows anything about her though?? She must have been born abt 1795. It was common to use mother's maiden name in a daughter's name but I have not been successful in locating a William White marrying a Chapman in Fauq. area. I found one in Louisa Co but he appeared to have died at Brandywine early on?
William said he relocated to Rowan Co NC aft RW. I found him there in 1800 purchasing land from an Isaac White of Wilkes Co. Land was on Reedy Creek in upper center of old Rowan Co NC. Now Davidson Co I think?
