Birth*circa 1725William Groten II (carpenter) was born circa 1725 at Accomack Co, VA.3 
Land bought*1746He bought land in 1746 at tract A35, Pungoteague Creek, Accomack Co, VA. It was in this year that Henry Gascoyne, as son and heir of Thomas, sold 121 acres to William Groton. The bounds were exactly the same as for the 280 acres which previously had been sold by Middleton, so perhaps the land had never been surveyed heretofore and a deficiency of nearly 50% had developed. In 1774 he left to his son William "the plantation where I now live," containing 125 acres, so it was evidently the same land he had bought from Gascoyne. In 1777 his son William left to his brother Zerobabel Groten "the plantation where my mother and I live, containing 175 acres," and his will also contained this item: "The public house with the privileges now belonging to it to be enjoyed by Benjamin Hutcheson for the present year and the year following, he accounting for it at the rate he now give of £30 year."4,2 
Marriage*circa 1748He married Amy (-----) circa 1748.5 
Land bought1753William Groten II (carpenter) bought land in 1753 at Atkinson part of tract A35, Pungoteague Creek, Accomack Co, VA. It was in this year that Whittington & Lisia Bayly were joined by their son Edmund in a sale to Major Rowles and 3 years later (1756) he and his wife Elizabeth sold to William Groten, but the next year he and his wife Amey sold back to Roles.6 
Anecdote*27 February 1753 On 27 Feb 1753 in Accomack County court a lease from Edmund Polson to William Groten Jr was proved by witnesses Bartholomew Taylor and Gilbert Hoffington.7 
Anecdote*27 March 1753 On 27 Mar 1753 in Accomack County court William Groten Jr was licensed to keep an ordinary at his house for a year.8 
Land bought1754He bought land in 1754 at tract A39, Pungoteague, Accomack Co, VA. It was in this year that Thomas Johnson and his wife Rachel resold to William Groten Jr., together with 50 acres which he had bought from Henry Bayly. Then in 1760 Hillary Beloat of Bluford County, NC, sold the north 50 acres to William Groten Jr. and the south 50 acres to Caleb Ames.9 
Land bought1759He bought land in 1759 at tract A35, Pungoteague Creek, Accomack Co, VA. It was in this year that Esther Lecatt, wife of Charles, gave a deed of release to William Groten for 102 acres which "he had purchased of Charles Lecatt." The land was at the southeastern or lower end of the tract. In 1774 Groten left to his son William, who 3 years later left to his brother Jonathan. In 1784 Jonathan sold to Thomas Jacob, and 10 years later he resold to Samuel Trader, who was accumulating land in that vicinity.10 
Security on Admin*29 May 1759He was security on the administration of an estate on 29 May 1759 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that administration on the estate of William Meers was granted to to Mary Darby with Charles Bagwell and William Groten Jr. securities.1 
Land bought*1765He bought land in 1765 at tract A54, Pungoteague Creek, Accomack Co, VA. It was in this year that Henry & Elizabeth Scarburgh sold 182 aces to William Groten; it was the end of the panhandle section of the tract and the part which is east of the present bayside road; it was bounded on the northeast by A62, on the southeast by A53, and on the southwest by the head-branch of Pungoteague Creek. In 1777 Groten left to his brother Zerobabel and in 1786 he and his wife Ann sold to William Read. (NOTE: It was probably this William's son William who left this land to his brother Zerobabel.)11 
Will - Father's*before 27 August 1771William was named in his father's will before 27 August 1771 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as my son William and named Extr in the will of William Groten, wife Mary.3

Land sold*1843He sold land in 1843 at Baltimore, MD. According to Whitelaw (N113) the descent of title of his land is uncertain, but in 1843 a Severn Ross of Baltimore gave a mortgage on a half interest in 130 aces of David Ross land; which was foreclosed the next year and sold to Richard J. Ayres. In 1844 Susan Ross mortgaged the other half, and while a foreclosure was not noted, that interest also passed into the possession of Ayres.2

Married Namecirca 1798 As of circa 1798,her married name was Milby. 
Land sold*1810Betsy Kellam sold land in 1810 at Accomack Co, VA. In 1810 when Hutchinson Kellam and his wife Sarah sold their part of tract A5 (between Belle Haven & Quinby) to George S. Savage, the deed incuded another 175 acres, which must have been the original John Savage third of the tract. In that deed Hutchinson and Sarah Kellam were joined by other Kellam heirs: Custis Kellam, femme sole, and Betsy Milby, widow of Gilbert Milby; it recited that the land had belonged to their grandmother and had descended to them upon the death of their father John Kellam in 1785. Unfortunately, neither the name of the grandmother nor the first name of her husband was given, but possibly she had been the sole heir of the John Savage who had inherited this part in 1717 from his father Roland Savage. (Note: An indepth look into this relationship shows that John Savage named 3 young chirldren in his will of 1728: Charles, Patience and Mary. The John Kellam, who died in 1785, was the son of Joseph and Patience Kellam, thus this Patience, mother of John Kellam, was certainly the daughter named in the will of 1728.)2

Will - Husb's*14 April 1746Mary was named in her husband's will on 14 April 1746 at Accomack Co, VA. In his will John Fosque, wife Mary, named sons John, Nathaniel, George and Luke; daughters Rachel Fosque, Barbara Harmon and Mary Meers.4 
Will - Extr*29 July 1746She was named as the executor of a will on 29 July 1746. Mary and Nathaniel Fosque (exr. of John Fosque, decd) swore to the will which was proved by witnesses. Abel Upshur, John Darby, Francis Savage and Nathaniel Bell (or three of them) were to appraise the estate.5 
Land left*1746She left land in 1746 at tract A6, Neville's or Bell's Neck, Accomack Co, VA. John Fosque left his plantation to his wife Mary for life and then it was to be divided among their several children, but his son Nathaniel was the next owner so perhaps he claimed it all as the heir-at-law. In 1777 Nathaniel Fosque mentioned no land in his will but named his wife Ann and five children as residuary legatees. In 1796 the widow Ann, Nathaniel and Margaret Fosque, John and Mary Smith, George and Ann Smith, and Anthony and Elizabeth West joined in a deed to John Fosque for 325 acres, the deed reciting that John was the eldest son and they felt it had been the intent of the father Nathaniel to have then land go to him. In 1817 John Fosque (wife Peggy) left his land to his son Nathaniel. A recent land book showed that the souther 124 acres were owned by William T. Fosque and the upper 150 acres by S. Bayly Turlington.6

Birth*1780Custis Kellam Jr. was born in 1780 at Accomack Co, VA.1 
Will - Father's*13 September 1783Custis was named in his father's will on 13 September 1783 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as son Custis Kellam (under 21) in the will of John Kellam.2 
Marriage15 November 1798He married Leah B. (of Geo) Dunton, daughter of George Dunton and Susanna Fathery, on 15 November 1798 at Worcester Co, MD. They were shown as Curtis Kellam and Leah Dunton.3 
Land sold*1810Custis Kellam Jr. sold land in 1810 at Accomack Co, VA. In 1810 when Hutchinson Kellam and his wife Sarah sold their part of tract A5 (between Belle Haven & Quinby) to George S. Savage, the deed incuded another 175 acres, which must have been the original John Savage third of the tract. In that deed Hutchinson and Sarah Kellam were joined by other Kellam heirs: Custis Kellam, femme sole, and Betsy Milby, widow of Gilbert Milby; it recited that the land had belonged to their grandmother and had descended to them upon the death of their father John Kellam in 1785. Unfortunately, neither the name of the grandmother nor the first name of her husband was given, but possibly she had been the sole heir of the John Savage who had inherited this part in 1717 from his father Roland Savage. (Note: An indepth look into this relationship shows that John Savage named 3 young chirldren in his will of 1728: Charles, Patience and Mary. The John Kellam, who died in 1785, was the son of Joseph and Patience Kellam, thus this Patience, mother of John Kellam, was certainly the daughter named in the will of 1728.)1 
Death*before 25 March 1811He died before 25 March 1811 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that administration on the estate of Custis Kellam Jr. was granted to Hutchinson Kellam with Isaac Dunton & Levin S. Joynes securities.4 
Land cause*30 November 1814He was named in a land cause on 30 November 1814 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that it was recorded that a certain Custis Kellam by deed dated 4 Dec. 1807 mortgaged to your orator a certain lot of ground at Bell Haven in this County, containing 1/5 acre; that some time after this, to-wit: on the ____ day of March, 1811, the said Custis Kellam departed this life intestate leaving the following children, Allen, Eliza, George & Sarah, Katharine & Ann Kellam and Leah B. Kellam his widow, &c.5

Solomon died intestate leaving a son of the same name and a widow Tabitha, who married Read Fletcher. In 1752 young Solomon sold 25 acres to William Dunton and the next year the balance of 135 acres, after Read & Tabitha Fletcher released her downer interest to both Solomon & Dunton. Dunton shortly sold 54 acres in the northeast corner to a John Walter.6

Anecdote*1775 According to Whitelaw, in 1680 Thomas Clark bought a part of tract A3 from Robert Gill and his wife Frances. It 1737 in a verbal will, a Blake Clark left everything to his wife Tabitha, who as Tabitha Fletcher left a will in 1775 and mentioned a son Richard Walter and some Walter grandchildren, as well as a son John Fletcher, so that after the death of Clark, she must have married married a Walter before she married a Fletcher. It is possilbe that instead of Blake Clark having inherited the Thomas Clark land, it had gone to an unknown brother of his, who died intestate leaving daughters Peggy and Keziah as his heirs. In support of this, it may be noted that Tabitha Clark-Walter-Fletcher mentioned no Clark children in her will. Her son Richard Walter married the above Peggy, and in 1774 they united with Keziah Clark in a 10-year lease for 69 acres to George Hancock. The lease stated that the land was a part of 104 acres, the balance being held by Peggy Turner as her dower, but neither the first name of her Clark husband nor the name of her second husband Turner were given. In 1787 Richard Walter (wife Peggy) left the 104 acres to her son Richard, but Kesiah Clark was to have maintenance as long as she lived. Both the bounds in the lease and a later survey place the 104 acres just where the land covered by the original patent to William Wouldhouse was located.8

Thomas Clark1

Birth*circa 1655Thomas Clark was born circa 1655.1 
Land bought*1680He bought land in 1680 at Accomack Co, VA. It was in this year that Thomas Clark bought a part of tract A3 from Robert Gill and his wife Frances. It 1737 in a verbal will, a Blake Clark left everything to his wife Tabitha, who as Tabitha Fletcher left a will in 1775 and mentioned a son Richard Walter and some Walter grandchildren, as well as a son John Fletcher, so that after the death of Clark, she must have married married a Walter before she married a Fletcher. It is possilbe that instead of Blake Clark having inherited the Thomas Clark land, it had gone to an unknown brother of his, who died intestate leaving daughters Peggy and Keziah as his heirs. In support of this, it may be noted that Tabitha Clark-Walter-Fletcher mentioned no Clark children in her will. Her son Richard Walter married the above Peggy, and in 1774 they united with Keziah Clark in a 10-year lease for 69 acres to George Hancock. The lease stated that the land was a part of 104 acres, the balance being held by Peggy Turner as her dower, but neither the first name of her Clark husband nor the name of her second husband Turner were given. In 1787 Richard Walter (wife Peggy) left the 104 acres to her son Richard, but Kesiah Clark was to have maintenance as long as she lived. Both the bounds in the lease and a later survey place the 104 acres just where the land covered by the original patent to William Wouldhouse was located.2 
Anecdote*14 January 1708/9 On 5 Apr 1709 William Nicholson, Thomas Clark & Richard Savage proved the verbal will of Thomas Savage.1
