Notes
a. Note:   [ralphroberts.ged] [roberts.GED] [6958.ged] STROTHER BENJAMIN (16??-1752), son of Willian Strother, Sr., who died testate in Richmond County in 1702 and Dorothy, his wife, married prior to 25 April 1703 Mary Woffendall, daughter of Adam Woffendall who died testate in Richmond County in 1704. The will of Adam Woffendall, dated 25 April 1703 and proved 7 June 1704 bequeathed to each of his "sons" Harrison and Strother 150 acres of land; this phraseology is deceiving as subsequent records assure us that the legatees were his two sons-in-law Robert Harrison and Benjamin Strother (16??-1752) who was sheriff of Richmond County in 1717. The land of Benjamin Strother fell into King George Countv in 1721 and those records abound with genealogical material in regard to the Strother family. Benjamin Strother died testate in King George County in 1752. COB #6, p. 112; COB#7, p.103; WB#2, p.70; King George County DB#3, p. 476; DB#4, p.254; WB#2, p. 11; Payne, p.66; William C.
