I'm looking for any info on any BENTONs who lived in Anson County in the early 1800s.
My William Thomas BENTON was supposedly born in Anson County in 1799. By 1820 he was in Caswell County where he married. Later he migrated north to Scott County, Virginia where he remained until he died between 1870-1880.
I would very much like to be able to connect him to some of the BENTONs who lived in Anson County near the time of his birth. So far I've very little to go on, but have found reference to the wills of a William BENTON written about 1820, and a Jeremiah BENTON in 1838. If anyone is researching these lines, I'd love to hear from you.
