Johnathan Hall Loudoun Co., VA Wyckoff blood? By d marie November 27, 2010

My 5th g-grandfather was Johnathan Hall Francis, b.Feb. 20, 1775 in Loudoun Co., VA.He took the Francis name sometime after being adopted by a William Francis.

He married Francinia ("Fanny") Francis, daughter of William.

Johnathan was the father of John Francis who married Susannah Wyckoff b. June 25, 1798 in VA, daughter of Samuel Wycoff, b. June 10, 1760.It is believed, though no proof found, that Johnathan's biological mother was a Wyckoff.

A Samuel Wyckoff family lived in the same area at the time.No one knows why Johnathan was adopted.There was a Johnathan Hall listed in the tax record of 1775 in Loudoun Co., VA that was probably his father.I'm hoping that someone knows more about who his parents might have been.
