Found in post to Walters@rootsweb.com: Feb 2008:
Rhoda WALTERS and John WALTERS were married on 7 July 1799 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia.8,12 John WALTERS11,166,167, son of Thomas WALTERS, was born on 30 April 1779 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia.167 He died on 12 December 1860 at the age of 81 in Union County, Tennessee.167
The Pittslyvania Co Land Tax lists of 1782 show a John Walters with 200 acres. Thomas Jr.'s father restated in his will that 200 acres had been given to John as the child of the deceased Thomas Jr. There was another John Walters in Pittsylvania at that time, but he was called Capt John in the tax list. I suspect that Thomas Jr was already deceased in 1782, since he does not appear on the tax list.
