      1775-1803 British Mercantile Claims
      Claims of McCall & Smellie [Page 154-55]:
      Catherine, George, Beverly, Peter and Robert Stubblefield of Spotsylvania. £35.0. 0. The bond on which this debt was founded was given by Mrs. Catherine Stubblefield in which her sons abovementioned were securities. Catherine Stubblefield died in June 1777, insolvent.
      George Stubblefield removed to Frederick County about 1791 and carried with him a very good estate, Beverly Stubblefield removed to Madison County during the last year, where he now resides in good circumstances.
      Harry Stubblefield died during the war and left but little property.
      Peter Stubblefield removed to Georgia since the peace and was generally esteemed very wealthy; he died in that state about five years ago without issue and left a very good estate, but it is said that his widow imprudently married a dissipated character who has spent all the property left by her former husband. Robert Stubblefield removed to Kentucky in 1787 in good circumstances; he now lives near Limestone in Mason County, still reputed solvent.
      Col. Beverly Stubblefield, the only one of the debtors who now lives in my district, says that the debt has not yet been paid, but they are making arrangements to discharge it in such a manner as to make the burthen fall proportionably on the different obligors in the bond, the estates of many of whom are very sufficient.
