John's son Benjamin was born c. 1762 in Southampton Co. and died in Smithfield, N.C. c. 1799. guessing his date of birth because he married Lucretia Clarke Feb. 26, 1783 in Southampton Co., VA--I was thinking he was probably at least 21 when he got married. Source of marriage info: (1) Some VA Marriages 1700-1799, v. 21 & (2) Ministers' Return, pg. 632.Benjamin served in VA Regiment in Revolutionary War. He & Lucretia had 7 children. He & his wife are buried in the Old Wellons Plantation in NC.

He married Anna Vasser on Feb. 25, 1784 in Southampton Co. Marriages of SH Co., the last name is spelled Willions. Another source, Some VA Marriages 1700-1799, v. 13-15, & 23, name spelled Wellons.
