Maryland Stapleton’s

John Stapleton

John Stapleton , d. 1764, Harford Co., MD. 

 

John Stapleton  had children:

 

1.       Edward Stapleton [i] (known son), b. 1711, McDeer Creek, Harford Co., MD

2.       Thomas Stapleton [ii] (possible son), b. 1724

 

Thomas Stapleton  b 1724 is seen in Maryland , North Carolina and finally in Virginia .  Thomas m. to Sarah Crooks  in Harford County , MD 1-15-1756 at St. George's Parish.  Thomas Stapleton  and Edward Stapleton  b.1711 moved with each other from Maryland to Rowan County , NC where Edward died in 1780.  Edward's son, Edward Jr . and Catherine Fraley  and his family moved with Thomas to Virginia by way of Robertson County , TN. Edward Jr. eventually came to rest in Gibson County , IN.   Edward Stapleton Sr . b. 1711 in Mcdeer Creek, Harford County , MD m. to Rachel Parks .  Edward's father was John Stapleton  who died in 1764 in Harford County , MD.   Thomas b.1724 and Edward b.1711 are always close to each other but I have yet to find proof that Thomas was the son of John although I know that Edward was his son.  I also have the information that Thomas was m. to Sarah Crooks in Harford County , MD and lived there for the birth of three daughters before going to Rowan County , NC where Edward followed at about the same time.

 

I have Thomas Stapleton  of Russell Co VA, as the brothers of Edward Sr. They were the sons of John Stapleton  of England . Edward moved from Rowan Co. NC. with father Edward Sr  and Thomas Sr.  Zacariah Salyer Sr  and Isaiah Salyer , his son moved with them. All of them lived in Russell County , near Jacob  and Joseph Castle  of "Castle’s Woods," after it was formed from Washington County with most of their signatures on the petition. The Stapletons and Salyers owned land together in NC as well as Russell Co., VA. Could this be the same Thomas? -- Penny -- muffin2@gte.net
