JOHN POUND AND FAMILY.

John Pound, a son of [Thomas and Audrey] his wife,

was born at Piscataway, Middlesex County, N.J., about 1735. He was married about 1759 to Rhoda Cox, by whom he had one son, and was married again about 1764 to Sarah Martin, by whom he had six children, two sons and four daughters. In 1758 his father died, leaving him the home plantation (subject to a life estate in the mother and legacies to the sisters, as mentioned in the will), and on July 12, 1770, John and his wife, Sarah, conveyed this plantation by a deed to Andrew Smalley, wherein it is recited that the grantor, John Pound, received the land by will from his father, Thomas Pound, who in turn received the land by deed, dated March 24, 1736-37, from the grandfather, John Pound, who came by it as sole son and heir of his mother, Winnifred. wife of the great-grandfather, John Pound, the original Pound and early settler in Piscataway.

It is not known whether John Pound moved from Piscataway immediately after making this conveyance in 1770. Possibly he may have located for a while in the adjoining county of Somerset, as others of the Pound family are known to have been living there about that time, and the records show that his son. Hezekiah, served from that county in the Revolution during the years 1776 and 1777. He later migrated to Maryland, at what date is not known, but probably about the time of the Revolution, as some of his younger children are said to have been born in that State. Nor is it definitely known in what part of Maryland he resided, though subsequent to the Revolution part of his family is known to have been living near Cumberland, as his son, Hezekiah, took a grant of land there as a settler in 1788, and his son. Thomas, and daughter, Eunice, moved from that locality to Kentucky in 1786. The date of his death is unknown, but he probably died prior to 1800—perhaps as early as 1790. His second wife, Sarah, survived him and married a man named Stiglar, and later, about the year 1813, married William"Kester, the common ancestor of the Kester family, found in this volume.
