William S. Stapleton  O

4.1.  Pvt. William S. Stapleton  Sr. , son of Johann George "Charles"  & Sarah (Unknown) Stapleton, b. 1757[xxxiv]-1760, Augusta Co., VA; d. 10 Jun 1835[xxxv], Blackwater, Lee Co., VA on his farm on Route 2 at age 81; bur. Stapleton Cemetery, West Blackwater, Lee Co., VA[xxxvi] - his grave is marked with a DAR marker; m 1st to Sarah Oney [xxxvii], daughter of Benjamin Oney ; m 2nd 8 Dec 1803, Montgomery Co., VA to Mary Brown , daughter of Jotham Brown , b. ca. 1761, Roanoke, VA; d. unknown; bur. Stapleton Cemetery – her grave is diagonally from him in the cemetery[xxxviii], West Blackwater, Lee Co., VA; probably married three times.

William Stapleton  farmed in Botetourt Co., VA; Greene Co., TN; then Lee Co., VA.  William  & Mary Stapleton  lived on a farm in the West Blackwater area of Lee County, Virginia. The farm was located on Route 2, currently goes by the name of the Mack Roberts farm (1992)[xxxix].  The cemetery in which William is buried is located on this land.

It has been proven that he married Mary Brown  12-8-1803 in Montgomery County, VA, this has been the topic of some confusion since Mary and her lawyer changed the date to 1793 when she was applying for George's Revolutionary War pension as his widow. For some reason in order for her to get the pension the wedding had to have taken place by 1794[xl].

Census Records 1820  Lee County Virginia

1820 he has two (2) sons 0-10 years old, 4 daughters (0-10) and his wife was 26-25 years old. (per-Paul Stapleton ).

Census Records 1830  Lee County Virginia

In the Lee County, VA census for 1830 you will find his father William listed with two of his other sons, George Stapleton  and Lewis Stapleton  all living next to each other.

Census Records 1840  Lee County Virginia

If you look on the 1840 Lee County, VA census, William  is no longer there since he died in 1835 but Joseph  is there living next to George and Lewis his brothers.

In 1846 Mary (Brown) Stapleton  filed for a pension for William S. Stapleton .

Revolutionary War Service:

It said that Wm  was living in Hawkins Co, TN when the Rev war started; and in Feb 1776, he (ca 16 yrs old) enlisted.  Served in the 7th Regiment of the Virginia Line, under Captain Dangerfield  and Colonel Lewis  was the Commander.  He enlisted (ca. 16 years old) a company commanded by Capt Thomas Posey , part of the 7th regiment of the VA line.  Capt. Thomas Posey  under Col. Dangerfield  who with Brig. Gen. Andrew Lewis , marched to York, Virginia, then on to the mainland overlooking Guinn's Island to defended the position.  While at Guinn's Island they built breastworks and artillery positions and brought the British under fire when they landed on the island.  Firebombs burned three of the British ships and after about two (2) months the rest of the ships sailed south.  After some time the regiment went into winter quarters at Williamsburg.  Where William received a four (4) month furlough - after which he went to Botetourt County[xli].  He later returned to the army from Montgomery County to join Capt Roberson's company, which then joined Gen Nathaniel Greene 's (on reserve[xlii]) fighting the Brittish at Gulford courthouse in North Carolina.   Wm left the service in 1781[xliii].

 

He served in the military in Feb 1776 in the Virginia Line, 7th Regiment.  His captain was Thomas Posey  under Col. Dangerfield , who with
