The sons of Elisha Wallen I  were an adventurous lot.  Growing up on the frontier of Virginia they and others of like minds joined together for extended hunts.  These hunts lasted upwards of eighteen months in length, during which time they hunted and explored the land, which would later become the states of Tennessee and Kentucky .  They became known as longhunters due to these long excursions into the wilderness.  Once in the wilderness they would make a base camp from which hunt.  The groups separate into smaller groups of two or three men and went out to hunt over a large area. 

In 1761 they established a station camp at Wallen Creek.  Some of the men who participated in this hunt were Daniel Boone , William Car , Isaac Bledsoe , Jack Blevins , William Blevins , Michael Stone r , James Harrod , Elisha Wallen .

Navada Heflin (jrheflin@erols.com) - 2/1999; 6/5/2001 according to notes that I have received that were produced by Deena Thompson, 1481 W. Gail dr. Chandler, Arizona 85224 – she states that according to family tradition William Roberts  was a longhunter, although his name has yet to be found on a list of hunters.  Upon further reading of notes – it is thought that the William Roberts who m. Elizabeth  Wallings is also the same William Roberts who m. Catherine Rogers .
