Yes!!!!!! I understood we were related somehow to the Washington's. I know that land was bought, sold, or leased between Agustus Washington (George's father) and Govenor James Garrard while he still resided in Virginia. I am very interested in trying to help you. The following is from the book.
"John Payne moved to North Carolina where he Married Mary Coles and had several children. Amoung them was DOLLY PAYNE, who was born in 1772 and married 1st John Todd of Virginia, and 2nd JAMES MADISON, 4th President of the United States. Another daughter LUCY PAYNE married 1st in 1792 Major GEORGE STEPTOE WASHINGTON, son of SAMUEL and nephew of GEORGE WASHINGTON, and 2nd in 1812 Thomas Todd of Lexington, Kentucky, Chief Justice of Kentucky in 1806, and an associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
Thus GEORGE STEPTOE WASHINGTON, Jr., who married in 1827 GABRIELLA HAWKINS, a granddaughter of Govenor James Garrard of Kentucky, was a nephew of DOLLY PAYNE TODD MADISON of White House fame. A more complete account of the PAYNE family can be found elsewhere, as enough has already been recited to show several connections between the PAYNES, WASHINGTONS and GARRARDS.
Christopher Motherhead was a witness in 1761 to the Will of JAMES NAUGHTY, the elder. This unusual name first appeared in Virginia in 1652, when SAMUEL MOTTERSHEAd CARRIED A LETTER TO Colonel Nathaniel Pope from his brother in England. ANNE POPE, daughter of Colonel Nathaniel, married JOHN WASHINGTON, and became the grandmother of GEORGE WASHINGTON."
Do you already have this information? There is information on George Washington's lineage in the Mormon libraries. When I was looking at it I did not have sufficient information to make a tie in. Perhaps you could. I will be interested in hearing further from you.
