Data on line shows that a David, received 580 acres in 1749, a William 1415 acres in 1747, a Thomas 785 acres in 1738 and a John 520 acres in 1747.

With all these Hendersons families; someone should have their lineage worked out and maybe it appears in some published form. In addition Worth S. Ray, in his book Tennessee Cousins, says that the eastern shore PA HENDERSONs migrated to the Beverly Manor area during the last part of the 1700s. Are these early Hendersons which obtained the land patents, children or grandchildren of William Henderson born April 30, 1676 in Scotland and Margaret BRUCE born March l, 1679 in Ireland/Scotland?

ROLLER posted by LTC Charles E. Rolle on Sunday, December 7, 1997

Prior to 1753, John Roller received land grants from Lord Fairfax. Where does one research the grants from Lord Fairfax? Are there any other Rollers listed as receiving grants from Lord Fairfax. In 1716, Governor Spotswood and his Knights of the Horseshoe led the first expedition into the Shenandoah Valley. Is there a Roller among those who accompanied Govener Spotswood? In 1732, Jost Hite took a group of Alsatian settlers to a hundred thousand-acre tract near the present city of Winchester, earlier granted to John Van Meter. Is there a Roller among those who accompanied Hite? Hite? Records in Holland show that there were some Reformed people at Massanutten about 1727. In 1924, Harry M. Strickler of Harrisonburg published "Massanutten" in which many particulars, both historical and genealogical, are collected. Adam Strickler and Jacob Stoever were listed as Massanutten pioneers. Strickler and Stover were also listed in residence on Hawksbill Creek, just above Luray, Virginia. Their neighbors were Rollers, Heistands, Beidlers and later, Ruffner. Can anyone identify the Rollers on Hawkbill Creek around 1739 and tell me about their ancestry? In 1726 Jacob Stover led a group of German and Swiss settlers into the Shenandoah Valley. The year after Adam Miller (Muller) guided a group of his friends down from Pennsylvania, settling between the Massanutten Mountain and the Blue Ridge.

The first ancestor is Samuel TROUT(T), who was apparently born around 1795 in Augusta County and married Mary (maiden surname unknown) just prior to 1820. They are known to have had "at least" one child born in Augusta Co. (John G.- my direct ancestor in 1820) and very likely had several more (several sons likely). We do know that John G. TROUTT was residing in present-day Craig Co. (then Montgomery Co.) in 1840 (with his family?) and that he first married there in the mid 1840's. In any event, any ancestral information on Samuel's family (his parents, etc.) or any other Trout(t) families residing in Augusta Co. in the late 1700's and/or early 1800's would be very much appreciated. The second ancestor I'm seeking information is Samuel Fisher who was thought to have been born in Augusta Co.,Va around 1803. It is presently assumed that he moved with his family to present-day Craig Co. (then Montgomery Co.) by the 1820's as he married an Elizabeth TAYLOR there around 1826. I am descended through their son Joseph, who was born in that county around 1827.
