Notes

From http://www.oocities.org/fcruble/lawsonfallingriver.html

"III-William Lawson and his mother, Susanna, sold 100 acres of land in Campbell County Virginia on Falling River. ( Campbell Co. was formed from Bedford. Dedford from Lunenberg and Lunenberg from Brunswick in 1746). This land had been willed to Barclay from William Rogers. Barclay and William Rogers were both deceased when the land was sold ( It would seem that there must be a family relationship here. A search of William Rogers might turn up this connection.)"
