95. John R. PRICE85 was born about 1757 in Prince Edward County, Virginia.85 He died before July 1833 at the age of 76 in Fayette County, Kentucky.85

The wife of John R. is unknown. He had other children: Stocel, America who married Burr Combs and died in Lewis Co MO, and Benjamin C., Elizabeth, and Henry Clay, all born after 1814 in Fayette Co KY. There was an earlier John Price in Fayette Co - whose wife's name was Sarah. This earlier John seems to be neither this John R., nor the John Price who was a collateral relative of William Haden of Logan Co KY.
