a. Note:   0, 1723." ------------------------------------- Re: Hall/Lansdown/Webb in Wilkes Co., NC Posted by: Cynthia McDaniel Date: April 02, 2000 at 14:57:43 In Reply to: Re: Halls in Carter County, KY by L ABRAMS of 21262 I have just found hese posts and have something to contribute and hopethat it will help others and you can fill in some blanks for me. I have a will for Millian Webb in Wilkes Co., NC where she mentions herson David Lansdown. It is possible that she was married before marryingSamuel Hall and had a son David. Unfortunately, I don't know who David is. I have Wlliam who is suspected to be the brother of Samuel. Theirparents are suspected to be John and Sarah (Heard)Hall of New Kent Co.,VA. I don't have any information on William so I don't know if he was inWilkes Co., NC with his brother Samuel nor if this William is the same asthe William which was discussed in 1998-1999. Has anyone else looked inWilkes Co. NC for this William? Does anyone have more on the Lansdowns inconnection to the Halls?
