Benjamin King of Petersburg, in Dinwiddie Co., VA died some time around 1815 and left money to a Polly Blick in his will. (Is it safe to assume that Polly was actually a Mary?) This gentleman was said to be a tobacco merchant. Also named were his sisters Martha Hawks and Sally King, half sister Rebecca Mays/Mayes, and Randolph White. Just curious to know if any of these names ring a bell.
In case it helps, Benjamin's wife was Elizabeth and his uncle was Julian King, a landowner who was probably also from that area, but who we know from deeds to be a large landowner living around Rocky Mount, NC. We are trying to discover information on John King Hawks, nephew of both men, and his wife Temperance (maiden name unknown), who is supposedly from NC. Thank you in advance for any information you may be able to supply.
