Two sources have been removed which related to different people - one had totally different dates and the other a different name. Of the two “sources” left - one leads to the unsourced equivalent profile on the family search website, and the other to a blog post concerning some possible descendants, also unsourced. For this reason, the “unsourced” sticker has been added. Please remove it once primary sources have been added.

The Family Search profile for him is also conflicting, as it currently indicates that he was born and died in Massachusetts. This profile is also unsourced. Reviewing Ancestry to see if they have any better information.

This Ancestry tree[2] shows him as being born in Middlesex, Virginia and dying in Frederick, Virginia. They cite this birth record[3][4] as proof of his birth date/place, which shows a birth date of 16 May 1719 and a baptism date of 14 June 1719, in Christ Church Parish, Virginia.

This unsourced Ancestry tree also seems to agree with the place of birth/death[5], but has the same issue as many of the other sources of being unsourced.
