My ancestor William Dunlap married Catherine Sites (1762-1833). I have not been able to connect William with the other Dunlaps in Old Augusta County. He was NOT the son of Robert and Mary (Gay) Dunlap of Augusta/Rockbridge.

William Dunlap owned a 230 acre plantation about one mile east of New Eraction Church in Northern Rockingham County-- within the Linville Creek watershed. He was called Esquire on tax lists, which meant that he had money and social status. William was a Justice of the Peace in Rockingham County. After his death in 1808, Catherine ran the plantation until 1833, when the acreage had diminished to a 76-acre farm.

My interest is in their daughter Catherine Dunlap (1787-ca1855) who married Henry Phillips (1785-1842) on Feb. 27, 1809. It is said that she is buried in an unmarked grave in the "Old Sellers Cemetery." When the 1850 US Census was taken, Catherine was living in the household of Reuben Sellers.

I might add that Elizabeth Dunlap, who was another daughter of William and Catherine Dunlap, married Abraham Phillips on Aug. 23, 1815. Henry and Abraham were brothers, and sons of Evan and Elizabeth (Dever) Phillips of Linville.

Is anyone researching these families?
