      "The Cash Family - From Virginia To Arkansas and Oklahoma" by Jean Noel Cash, Sr.

      JOSEPH CASH, the son of William and Elizabeth CASH, was born in Westmoreland County, Virginia, Washington Parish, ca 1706. He was married ca 1727 to Susannah MASON, daughter of George and Anne MASON of Prince William County, Virginia and Dunham Parish, Charles City, Maryland. He owned a plantation in Brunswick Parish, King George County until 1733, at which time he was deeded 150 acres on the lower side of Dogue Creek, Turo Parish, Prince William County, by George and Anne MASON "for the natural lives of Joseph CASH, Susannah, his wife, and Ann, their daughter." This part of Prince William County became part of Fairfax County in 1742, and its present location is directly alongside of old U.S. Highway 1 (Post Road) south of Alexandria near a village then called Occoquan. Over the years he purchased several hundred acres adjoining this property and by 1752 owned at least 959 acres. Susannah MASON CASH died ca 1749 and he was married ca 1750 to Elizabeth, believed to be a member of the CULVERHOUSE family. In 1772 he was commissioned to survey Dogue Creek Road, which indicates he had a knowledge of surveying. In 1774 he and most of his family, together with the Hall and CULVERHOUSE families, moved to Dutch District (later Dutchville), Granville County, North Carolina, where he, his son Joseph, Jr., and grandson, Joseph Cash HALL, were granted approximately 1000 acres along Picture Branch Creek. He died in Granville County between 23 July 1779, the date of his Will, and August 1780, the date of probate.

      NOTE: It might appear to some that there should be two men names Joseph CASH, father and son, instead of only one, since if only one man sired all these children he would have been about 68 at the birth of his last child, Elizabeth. Despite this, the evidence is clear that there was only one. When George MASON deeded the land to Joseph CASH in 1733 he named as the wife Susannah and daughter Ann. In his Will of 1779, Joseph referred to Anne as "my daughter Anne HALL." When Joseph's land was surveyed in 1779, Joseph Cash HALL was named as chain carrier on the survey party and Joseph Cash HALL was also granted land on the same date as Joseph CASH, Sr. and Jr., indicating he was over 21 at that time. In every case, his signature on legal documents was Joseph Cash HALL, clearly establishing his relationship to Joseph CASH Sr. Anne Cash Hall named a daughter Susannah, establishing in all probability that her mother's name was Susannah and Joseph Cash HALL named his eldest daughter Ann, named probably for his mother, Anne Cash HALL. In the 1786 North Carolina State Census, Joseph Cash HALL is shown to have 5 sons and 3 daughters, further establishing his likely birth date as ca 1752. In their Revolutionary War Pension Applications, both Peter and James, the sons of Joseph Sr.,, gave as their place of birth Fairfax County, Virginia, and that they moved from there to Granville County, North Carolina in 1774, further supporting the evidence that the Joseph married to Susannah in Fairfax County, Virginia., and the Joseph married to Elizabeth in Granville County, North Carolina, were the same man.
