Witnesses: WIlliam Bray, Joshua Ball, Reuben Ball. Clerk of the Court: Wm. Mearns.

Birth dates for all children except Peter and Nathan were estimated by PR. Three of the girls were married at the time of Peter's will in 1758. And Peter & Sophia married in 1719.
The guestimates found on the internet just don't compute. For instance, they had Keziah's birth date at 1754. And her mother's birth date at 1684. Another est. found of 1703 works better, but is not definite either.
Peter's wife listed in the will was Sophia.

The will of Benjamin Johnson, dated April 15, 1812:
Wills to wife Casander Johnston the property "I received at the time of our marriage that has not been distributed among HER children..."

He uses Johnston, Johnson and Jonson in the same document. Signs his name Benjamin Johnson.

Came from Maryland and settled in the northeast part of Iredell Co. He was one of the trustees to whom the
deed to the first lot of land belonging to Mount Bethel Methodist Church ("Prather's Meeting House")
in Turnersburg Twp. was made.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1798: bought from Isaac Holmes, 220 acres on Soaking Branch, Hunting Creek.
1799: bought from Jacob Nichols estate, a plantation adjoining the "Life" Nichols Place on Little Dutchman Creek,
later known as the Smith Place. In 1804, he deeded part of this land to Benjamin F., his son.

A note at the end of the "Charles Lovelace" info from Iredell Co. Genealogical Society:
Asa Johnson's descendents have been good, substantial, upright citizens. Most or all of his children owned slaves. While some have belonged to the Baptist demonination, most of his descendants have been identified with the M.E. church, South. Quite a number have been connected with the Masonic fraternity. While dark hair and eyes are common among them, light hair, blue or brown eyes and fair complexion have generally predominated.

Stokeley Ann [Female] b. ABT 1647 Accomac Co. Virginia - d. ABT 1712 Accomac Co. Virginia

The Stokeleys were established on the Eastern shore before that region was actually organized into counties. For this reason, the earliest records on Francis Stokeley are not known. The exact date of the arrival of the Stokeleys in Virginia hasn't been established, but by 1634 Francis Stokeley was already living in what is now Northampton COunty. In that year he patented an additional 50 acres for the transportation of a servant. (Nugent's Cavaliers and Poineers, vol 1, page 52)
The two brothers first in Northampton are John and Francis Stokeley.
The will of Francis Stokeley (Northampton Co., Records, D & W. 5, page 83) dated December 12, 1655 and proved on January 28, 1655/6, mentions wife, two daughters (Frances and ANN), son John, a brother John and John's son William Stokeley. The will mentions Francis' wife but does not give her name. His daughter ANN married Henry Towles, who is said to have emigrated from Liverpool to Accomack County (Virginia Magazine, vol 8, page 320)
Francis Stokeley's lands lay in the part of Northampton Co. which became Accomack as is shown by the sale of a portion of the lands of Francis Stokeley, dec. by Francis Stokeley, Jr. (200 acres) to William Curtis 1657.

Ann Stokeley married Henry Towles and their son was Stokeley Towles.

Virginia Family Histories #3, 1600-1800s
Genealogies of Virginia Families, Volume III, Towles and Clark Families, Page 583.

On October 21, 1708, Stokeley Towles married, in Middlesex, Ann (born August 14, 1693) daughter of Claude Vallott, also known as Claude Champagne, who, on October 6, 1684, deposed that he was 35 years old. Vallott's wife was Ann (nee Jenkinson).

Towles' will, of record at Culpeper, made January 15, proved December 15, 1757, named Spencer Bobo and testator's (second) wife Jane executors.
From this will and other records, it appears that he had the following children: I Oliver, II JOHN, born April 5, 1712, III Henry (first),
IV Elizabeth, born December 7, 1716, V Ann, born April 23, 1719, VI Catherine, born July 5, 1721, VII Mary (first), born November 1, 1722, VIII Jane, born February 20, 1726, IX Joseph, born February 23, 1728, X FRANCES, born May 8, 1726, XI Stokely, XII Judith, born April 13, 1735, XIII Lucy, XIV Mary (second), born April 12, 1749, XV Henry (second), born March 15, 1756.
Yes, two named Mary and two named Henry.

FRANCES, daughter of Stokeley and Ann, married Richard Vawter, whose will, dated March 1, 1803, names son-in-law Elijah Wilhoit, daughters, Margaret Breedlove, Lucy Finks, Tabitha Rouse, ANN VAWTER and Alpha Shelton. Frances Vawter's will, dated November 11, 1811, named daughters Alpha Shelton, ANN VAWTER and Nancy Wilhoit. ANN married PHILEMON VAWTER

From the "Biography of Panthea (Sharpe) Allison by her great great grandson:

She was daughter of James and Jane Sharpe, was born in Iredell Co. N.C. August 26, 1789. Her father was one of the early settlers of that county. Panthea married George Allison, the son of William Allison, another pioneer. Children: James, William, Jane, George, Nancy (our line) Joseph, Panthea, Anna, Mary Lovina, an infant, stillborn, and Delia, born 1832.
Panthea may be best remembered for the minute record she kept of the approximately 500 babies she delivered in Iredell Co. between 1818 and 1856, including her own grandchildren.
When her baby Delia and her husband moved to the distant state of Iowa, she went with them, in the summer of 1856, and died there in 1868.
