  • Notes 
    • Fauquier Co. Will Book #4, Page 286, dated 1 Nov. 1805, probated 26 Oct. 1806
      http://www.millefleurs.tv/Second_Generation.html

      John French is mentioned as a voter in the Stafford Co. election of 1758, and Margaret may be mentioned in the will of Henry Bussy in Stafford Co. on 16 Apr. 1764 (a will which is witnessed by Edward Burgess Jr.). By 1760 the Frenches had moved to Loudoun County, VA, when John French is listed on the tax rolls; John bought 180 acres in Fauquier County, VA in 1768 from William and Martha Pearle (Deed Book #3, Page 338-39), and is listed there on the tax rolls from 1782. By inference she is living in 1783, but died before her husband (1806).
