Wife Eleanor in a deed of John Hight 8 Feb 1770, Lunenburg Co Va; Will of William Nichols, dated 1762 mentions daughter Eleanor Hight, Lunenburg Co.
He probably moved to Bute (Franklin) Co NC abt 1770 when his name ceases to appear on Virginia records & appears on NC records. He was a Private in the Militia in Lunenburg Co 1758. Received land grant of 770 acres in St James Parish 1760. Constable in Lunenburg Co 1764; List of Tithes 1764 with "his sons" Herbert & Richard.

The failure of John Hight Sr to name all twelve children in his will has posed a problem Due to various deed & records, 5 of the 6 missing names have been identified, tentatively, but probably correctly. The exact order of their births is not known but has been estimated. It is assumed the the children born after 1750 were from the second marriage.
