Bartlet Green witnessed a will in Lunenburg Co in 1759. He witnessed a deed in Bedford Co in 1774. He also served in Lord Dunmore's War in 1774, was on the dellinquent tax list in Fincastle Co in 1773. Last found in Montgomery Co 1790 kin the same area he was in when it was Fincastle, the area that later became Grayson Co. Have nothing on his family, but believe he may have been a father-in-law to Charles Sexton who named a son Bartlet. Bartlet Sexton was born abt 1775. Hope this helps

    William served in the 2nd, 10th and 14th Virginia Regiments.  He volunteered for the army May 1776, enlisted at "The Royal Oak", a plantation owned by the Campbell family, for two three year terms, served 3 years and then went home for a furlough. While on furlough, he fell off his horse and broke his shoulder and kneecap. (Could this have been when his first wife died???) He paid Mr. William Street $200 and a suit to substitute for him in the army. He received an honorable discharge and credit for 6 years of service. He applied for a pension Jul 6, 1826 after his house and everything in it burned. William b. Feb 11, 1747 Augusta Co., VA, lived in Grayson Co., VA, 1800 moved to Whitley Co., KY, had 10 sons and 2 daughters, d. Dec 31, 1830, buried in Alsip cemetery on Cumberland Falls Rd.

Notes for Pryor Sexton:   There is no proof that Pryor is with this family, Willis did not find him on the VA Lunenburg Co Court Order Bk 9 12 May 1763. He does theorize that " As youngest, might he not have been left with mother if she was still alive? He was in the New River area at least 1793 until death in 1834."  As he was still nursing, this is very probable.

                          Thomas Sexton Gallion was a bee keeper in Virginia. He joined the troops of Capt Hale in the War of 1812. While he was away from home, a neighbor stole his bee hives and his lively hood.  When he returned from the war he confronted the neighbor and they came to blows, Thomas having killed the neighbor. Fearing for his life, he fled to Kentucky,where he assumed the name Gallion (taking mothers's maiden name or so we believed). He married twice and raised a large  family. Owned property, worked for county but lost all to carpebeggers during the Civil War.  Name change was filed in court when Thomas had to appear to claim bounty land and proved that he was Thomas Sexton.
