PLEASE provide your source of the information that you are providing. We are trying to do the best research possible and noting where we find our information so others will know where this information came from will be appreciated.

o Be Done (TBD) Enter ref to both (1 is the original and the 2nd is a copy) of Daniel’s will’s and put them into the source binder 3 ring binder and letter noting the original vs the Clerks copy.

Insert Nat’s (a gentlemen’s) letter to Dorothy regarding Daniel original will.

Rusty’s assumptions below:

Daniel Givens’s mother & father would have been born @ 1695 to 1720’s –

If Daniel was b@ 1739* or 1745*

- 20 - 20 Daniel’s parents most likely would been

1719 1725 @ 20 yr’s of age, if Daniel was one of

their first born.

There are two dates that our family members believe, may have been Daniel’s birth year, 1739 to 1745. Dorothy Hall Givens concurred. RG & C&NG concur.

We think that Daniel was most likely born in the Colonies (most likely Pennsylvania). The family migrated down the Pennsylvania Turnpike into Southern Virginia maybe around the mid to late 1750’s. It is noted in history books that the Irish did not get along with the Germans or Quakers, so migrated South. This was Indian Territory and no one cared who ran them or killed them and settled the territory themselves. Augusta County that was formed in 1738 and started operations @1745­ and ­County in 1769-70, later where Daniel Givens lived, became Craig County, Virginia. One needs to look at maps to see how the size and configuration of these counties changed over the years Sinking Creek is in Craig County, Virginia as of 1851, which is West of New Castle, (Newcastle), Virginia.

Orange County

In 1734, the General Assembly looked to the past when naming Orange County after William of Orange, who ruled initially with Queen Mary and then solo as King William III.

Put Daniel’s children’s names here:

It is highly probable, that Daniel named some of his children, after his father, mother, aunts and uncles, which was and continues to be a common practice.

Martha Camden’s Mother’s name might have been Anna or Annie or Sarah or Susannah, as families sometimes named their first born daughter and son after their Mother and

Daniel’s first born son might have been William or Isaiah.

Check the Marriage bonds and see if it notes the age of who is getting married which I could then back into their birth year.
