Stephen King (d 1835) and Columbus King Franklin/Henry Counties, Virginia

Classification: Query
Does anyone have info on birthplace and parents of Stephen King? He is usually shown as b. 1752 (Franklin Co), d Apr 2. 1835, pension as Rev War private, h of Lurania Maupin. Some genealogists show Columbus King, b 1728 as father or William King as father, but do not cite any source. Both Columbus King and William King are family names in later generations. Is 1752 birthdate too early for Franklin County as birthplace? My ancestor is Stephen's son, Hiram King, b 1794, d. btw 1850-1855, Adair (now Metcalfe) Co, Kentucky. Any information or speculation appreciated. Thanks, Brad King
