About Robert Poage

There is no reliable source that provides information on his Irish parentage. All we seem to know is that he arrived around 1739 to Virginia from Ireland, and became a notable figure around Stanton, Augusta County, Virginia.

Three options have been proposed by users:

  • 1. Thomas Poage (1674 - 1760) & Mary Poage (Cochran) (deceased)
  • 2. ? Poague (deceased) & Jane Poague (Wakler) (deceased)
  • 3. Robert Poage (1666 - d.) & Margaret Poage (Mackie) (1670 - d.)

If a source (preferably primary, or at least one that cites a primary source) could be provided, that would be much appreciated.
