Found in post to Walters@rootsweb.com: Feb 2008:
Rhoda Jane Walters, b. 29 Jan 1780; died 11 Oct 1839, Grainger Co TN.

Rhoda WALTERS and John WALTERS were married on 7 July 1799 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia.8,12 John WALTERS11,168,169, son of Thomas WALTERS, was born on 30 April 1779 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia.169 He died on 12 December 1860 at the age of 81 in Union County, Tennessee.169

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.


John Walters married Rhoda Walters, dau of John Walters. Sur: Ezra Walters, her brother. John and Rhoda were 1st cousins.

I believe John Walters may have married again in his old age. His son Thomas Spiers Walters was living in Grainger Co TN in 1850, and on the previous page was a John Walters, age 70, b. Virginia, with wife Rebecca age 73, also b. VA.
