Strength and Honor: The Life of Dolley Madison By Richard N. Côté claims he was born Nov 15, 1762, Hanover Co., VA, died after Dec 26, 1784. Believed lost at sea enroute to England. Also claims William Temple Payne born June 17, 1766 at New Garden, NC, died before Jan 5, 1795. Believed lost at sea. (Rest of this book not on Google.)

From: Cedar Creek, 8 mo. 11, 1779—"By a report from Cedar Creek Preparative Meeting, it appears that Walter Payne has removed to Philadelphia. Micajah Terrel, James Hunnicutt, Moses Harris and Micajah Davis are appointed to prepare a certificate for him, and assign the same in behalf of the Monthly Meeting if nothing obstructs."
"1785, Dec 26.—First day. This evening Walter Payne took leave of us, intending to set off early to-morrow morning for Virginia, and in a few weeks to embark there for Great Britain

Gwathmey Dabney, the youngest child of William and Philadelphia Dabney, was probably born between 1762 and 1767 in King William County, Virginia.
He married Elizabeth Maddox June 15, 1786, in Goochland County. They had 6 children: Sarah, James, John, Nancy, Elizabeth, and Mordecai. Very little has been found concerning their children
In the month of his marriage, he opened an account at William Winston’s store in Goochland, which he continued for a year. Over his lifetime, he appears to have been somewhat peripatetic, perhaps partly because he did not inherit any land from his father’s estate as his older brothers did. The details of the deeds to his brothers’ inherited land suggest that they may have contributed toward a compensatory fund for him.
In 1787, he obtained 418 acres in Goochland County from Thomas Pollock, probably by lease, since deeds for its purchase and sale could not be found. He continued to pay taxes on it through 1790, but was listed as a non-resident landowner during the last two years. He moved to King William County and paid personal property taxes there during 1792. He was not listed again in King William until 1800, where he remained until 1807. By 1809, he had moved to Middlesex County, where he was listed in the land tax list as a co-owner (or co-taxpayer) of 727.5 acres with Robert Dabney of Gloucester County. This Robert Dabney has not been identified and may be a tax commissioner’s entry error. In 1810, his partner’s name changed to James Dabney of Gloucester County, probably Dr. James Dabney, son of Major George Dabney III of King William County. He continued to be listed in the Middlesex land tax list through 1813, but moved during 1812 or 1813 to King William County, where he witnessed 2 deeds March 1 and 2, 1812 and was listed in the King William personal property tax lists for 1813 - 1815, after which his tax entry changed to Gwathmey Dabney estate charged to his widow, Elizabeth Dabney, indicating his death in 1815/16. He did not leave a will. Elizabeth continued in the King William personal property tax list through 1825, indicating that she probably died in 1825/26 or moved out of the county to live with one of her children elsewhere.
It has not been possible to find records of the lives of Gwathmey and Elzabeth’s children except for James, whose data is sparse.

In the 1850 census, she was 35 and living in King William County with Catherine Simpkin also 35.

Listed in KWC PP tax, 1850 through 1855, in KWC land tax, 1854 through 1856.

In 1855, she was listed in the KWC land tax list with Sarah Turner and Julia Turner under John H. Burch (probably the husband of a sister), 500 acres, valuation $3,3000, George Turner estate.

Anthony Haden’s first land sale in Albemarle Co. was in 1774 (may be an earlier Anthony).
Anthony Haden’s first land purchase in Albemarle Co. was in 1793. With wife Anna, he then sold it in 1794. No other deeds in Albemarle.

Anthony and Drusilla had 6 children between 1768 and 1778, Janey, Betsey R., John, Turner R., Henley, and Rebecca
Anthony and Mary had 2 children between 1782 and 1783: James C. and Richard D.
Anthony and Anna had 3 children between 1788 & 1793

Robert Dabney Jr. was born to Robert “Robin” and Elizabeth (Winston) Dabney about 1776 in Louisa County, Virginia.
He married Elizabeth Jackson Christmas, daughter of John and Nancy (Jackson) Christmas, December 17, 1792 in Louisa County. They had four daughters: Roxanna, born 1798/99; Ann J.; Mary C.; and Louisa W.
Robert was listed in the Louisa County personal property tax list from 1792 to 1797 and the land tax list from 1792 to 1796. In 1814, he was living in Frankfurt, Kentucky, when he sold his share of the mill and tract inherited by his mother to his brothers, William and Joseph F. Dabney.
In 1821, Robert deeded one slave to each of his four daughters with Elizabeth Christmas, his first wife, stating that he received the slaves through his marriage with their mother. Since Elizabeth did not sign this gift deed, she was probably deceased.
Robert moved to Alabama before March, 1824, when a patent was issued to John Burch for 160 acres in Montgomery County, Alabama, to whom it had been assigned by Robert Dabney. It is likely that Robert filed his original entry for the land at least a few months earlier. Robert probably remarried to his second wife, Sarah (__) about a year before the birth of their first child, William, in 1824/25. Their other children were Robert, born 1831/32; Henry Clay, born1832/33; and a daughter identified on a tombstone as L. C. Durham.
In the 1840 and 1850 censuses, Robert and his family were living in Monroe County, Alabama. In 1850, Robert was listed as 68 and a merchant like his son, William. In 1860, Robert was still living in Monroe County, but two Robert Dabneys aged 80 and 79 are listed in the census in different households in the same township that were enumerated 16 days apart. It is likely that they are the same man. Since the second location was the residence of a physician, Robert may have moved there for medical care.
Also listed in the 1860 census was a W. W. Dabney, 35, carpenter, in the state prison in Coosa County, sentenced in 1854 for murder, who may be Robert’s son, William.




Also listed in the 1860 census for the state prison in Coosa County, Alabama, was a W. W. Dabney, 35, carpenter, sentenced in 1854 for murder, who may be Robert’s son, William.

Another Robert Dabney, 79, no occup., b. VA; in household of Nancy Fowler, 50, farmer, $10,000/$16,000, b. ?; Richard Fowler, 23, physician, $17,900, b. AL, + 4 ch. 11-17 (probably not son of Robin Dabney)

In deeds dated 15 Apr 1821, Robert Jr. gave the four children of his first wife, Elizabeth Christmas, one slave apiece and an unspecified amount of money. He explained that the gifts were property that Elizabeth had brought into the marriage. This suggests that Elizabeth Jackson (Christmas) Dabney was deceased at the time.

They had 10 children: (birth years estimated from ages in 1850 and later censuses), Elizabeth, born about 1813, married Stephen B. Miller August 15, 1846, living in Ohio County, Kentucky, in 1850, probably died before 1860, when Stephen was listed alone; Mary (Nancy), born about 1815, married John Todd September 26, 1830, lived iin Madison County, Kentucky, in 1850, probably died before 1860, when John was living with a different wife in Madison County; Sarah, born about 1821/22, married Franklin P. Glasgow November 24, 1840, then moved to Nodaway County, Missouri, where they were listed in the 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1880 censuses; Edward, born about 1824, living in Eldorado County, California, as a miner in 1850, married Eliza Swearingen in Nodaway County, Missouri, in 1855, who may be the Louise who was listed with him in the 1860 and 1870 censuses in Nodaway County; Ann, born about 1824, married John Lee, living in Madison County, Kentucky in 1850; (Search Madison Co. tax lists on order for John Lee) Richard W., born about 1824/25, married Minerva C.

James Stephenson first appeared in the Madison County, Kentucky, tax lists in 1787. In that year, he was taxed on 12 horses and no land. from 1789 through 1796, he was taxed on 14-38 horses, suggesting that he was raising horses for market. Until 1833 he does not appear to have purchased land, but rented it intermittently with the owners sometimes paying the taxes. About 1830, he acquired 250 acres and subsequently bought additional amounts until his death in 1847/48 when he was charged with 1,000 acres. During his later years, he kept about 7-14 horses.
James died in 1847/48.

Fifteen years before his marriage, Henry enlisted in October, 1777 as a cadet in the 12th Virginia Regiment. In Dec. 1778, he was promoted to Lieutenant and made adjutant of his unit in the 8th Virginia Regiment of Foot with increased pay. He continued in service until December, 1781. During those years, his unit was involved in the Buford massacre in South Carolina and the battle of Yorktown and Cornwallis’s surrender.
Henry and Agatha were living in Botetourt County when the censuses for 1810-1830 were taken. Henry received 200 acres of bounty land December 31, 1795 for his service as a Lieutenant in the Revolution. He was awarded a pension of $400 annually from March 5, 1831, to his death June 13, 1832.

Henry died June 13, 1832. In the 1840 census, Agatha was 60-69 and living with a boy 5-9. She died in 1847. 
Madison, Agatha (I1938)
 
36 Agnes Carr was born in 1712 to Major Thomas Carr Jr. and Mary (Dabney) Carr of Caroline County, Virginia.
She married Col. John Waller Jr. of Spotsylvania County in 1730. He was born ca 1701 to Col. John and Dorothy (King) Waller of Endfield, King William County and later Newport, Spotsylvania County. From her father, Agnes inherited the Topping Castle farm, where John and Agnes lived for the rest of their lives. They had eight children: Mary, born October 22, 1730, married James Overton; Thomas, born July 29, 1732, married Sarah Dabney, a daughter of John and Anna (Harris) Dabney; Pomfrett, born January 20, 1747, married Martha Martin; Agnes, married Henry Goodloe Johnston; Ann, married James Bullock; Sarah, married Clifton Rodes of Albemarle County; Dorothy, married Thomas Goodloe; Elizabeth, married Edmund Eggleston of King William County.
John Waller was a vestryman in St. George’s Parish in Spotsylvania County in 1733 and sheriff in 1746. They lived on the Pamunkey River in Berkeley Parish
John died in 1776. In his will, dated February 6, 1776, and proved
April 18, 1776, he left his home farm to his wife, Agnes, and after her death to his eldest son, Thomas. To his other son, Pomfrett, he left 200 acres. He made additional bequests to his daughters, Mary, Agnes, Ann, Agnes, and Dorothy, granddaughters Agnes Waller and Agnes Carr Johnson, son-in-law James Bullock, and nephew John Lewis. Agnes died in 1779. 
Carr, Agnes (I530)
 
37 Agnes Waller was born to Col. John and Agnes (Carr) Waller , in Spotsylvania County, Virginia.
She married ca 1757/58 Henry Goodloe Johnston Sr., a son of William Buford Johnston and his wife Mary of Spotsylvania County. They had ten children: Mary Johnston (1759-1788); John Waller (1762-1800), living in Nelson County, Kentucky, in 1794, died in Nelson County in 1800/1801, bequeathed 1799 acres of Millitary Land to his siblings; William Goodloe (1764-unknown) mentally disabled; Agnes Carr (1767-1840; Ann Key (Johnston) Childress (1769-1848); Dorothea Pomfrett (1771-1815); Thomas Buford (1774-1853, moved to Adair Co., KY in 1812; Sarah Dabney (1776-unknown); Stephen Henry (1779-1781); Henry Goodloe Jr. (1781-1871).
Henry was listed in the Spotsylvania personal property tax lists from 1782 (earliest available) through 1802 with about 5-12 slaves and 4-6 horses. In the land tax lists, he was charged with 380 acres from 1786 to 1792, which then decreased to 193 acres when he gave his eldest son, John Waller Johnston, 121 acres in 1793, then increased to 400 acres in 1801, part of which may have been rented. His son John’s will made in 1797 stated that Henry was mentally deranged when he gave John 121 acres in 1793. In 1803, his entries in both tax lists changed to Henry Johnston’s estate, indicating his death. He did not leave a will, and his estate was settled by an administrator. Agnes was named as the taxpayer for their personal property through 1821, when she probably died. She was listed in the 1810 census for Spotsylvania County with one adult male, two adult females, and one child. Henry’s land was taxed through 1805.
In 1794, Henry published a notice in the Virginia Herald and Fredericksburg Advertiser (vol. 7, June 26 1794, issue 369) warning the public not to trade with his wife because he would not pay any of her contracts. He added that she had taken up with another man with whom she was hiring an attorney to prove him a fool, put him in a mad house, and take away his hard-earned estate. No further evidence has been found concerning the outcome of this rift. 
Waller, Agnes (I1930)
 
38 Albert Gallatin Dabney was born to Cornelius and Elizabeth Smith (Winston) Dabney November 23, 1799, in Louisa County, Virginia.
He married Ann Eliza Catlett, a sister of his brother Cornelius’ wife, December 8, 1820. They had five children: Edwin Winston, born September 28, 1821; Thomas Catlett, born Septmber 20, 1823; Albert Smith, born 1825; Cornelius Isaac, born November 24, 1826; and John Temple, who died in childhood. Ann died between 1828, when her last child was born, and 1832, when Albert remarried to Elizabeth Eggleston Scates. They had eight children: Ann Maria, born about 1832/33; Elizabeth, born 1834/35; Juliette O., born 1836/37; Walter Scates, born 1838; William Spotswood, born 1840/41; Louisa V. born 1844; Joseph Whorton, born 1845/46; Robert Owen, born 1847/48.
Albert farmed in Louisa County and served in the militia, where he rose to the rank of Major, a title he carried for the rest of his life. In 1832 or 1833, when he was about 32/33, he migrated to Trigg County, Kentucky, where he was listed in the county tax list from 1833 through 1842. In 1843, he moved to neighboring Christian County and gave half of his Trigg land to his son Edwin W., who was listed until he moved to Texas in 1853. In the 1850 census, he was living in Christian County, Kentucky, aged 50, with land valued at $1,800. Albert continued to live in Christian County until 1855, when he died and his will was proved in Christian County Court. The will was written in 1844, marking him as an unusually prudent man, unlike the great majority of men who made their wills within a month or two of their deaths. It also suggests that he may have been experiencing some physical limitations when he moved from Trigg County to Christian County in 1843.
In his will, Albert listed the value of the gifts that he had given to the four sons of his first marriage and expressed his desire that his remaining assets should be divided to benefit all of his children as equally as possible. In the 1860 census, Elizabeth was living in Christian County, aged 74, with land valued at $8,000 and personal property valued at $29,620.
Another Albert Gallatin Dabney was born about 1803/04 to Humphrey Dabney of Richmond. Albert born in Louisa County was a grandson of William Dabney of King William County (1721/26-1767) and Albert of Richmond was a great-grandson of William, making them first cousins, once removed. 
Dabney, Albert Gallatin (I168)
