      NOTE: From Lou Pero, 29 November 1997" LouPero@aol.com: " I had a query in my newsletter in
      May/July from Leslie Cab@aol.com Sackville was the son of Thomas King and Thomas is supposed to be the son of William Grattford King of the Stafford Co., VA Line, if I remember correctly. That was according to research by Good King Fedlhauser. I worked a bit last year on trying to document some of that work and I have to say that I haven't yet seen anything to definely link that Thomas to the Stafford Co. line. There is still a lot of work to do.

      Sarahs father might be Anthony Alexander ( b 1665 in Scotland and came to Tyrell City, NC
      Film # 1761020 LDS remarriage

      1/16/04: I dispute the spouse as Sarah Alexander. The logic is Sackville as Sarah's last name not
      Alexander. Withers KING son of William Valentine married Sarah Alexander. The Sackville Surname
      was prominent in the area. 9/5/05 : Have found that the Alexander surname was prominent in Stafford Co. as well.

      Also review St. Martin's Parish.

      Also review the following:
      Thomas King died in 1798 and he and his wife were buried on the plantation deeded to Benjamin
      King ( youngest son ) . But when it was sold in 1802 their bodies were removed. There were have
      to be records of this.
      ______________________________________________________________________________
      According to records; in Louisa Co., VA: Thomas King owned land in St. Martin's Parish ( October 16, 1751 ) Deed for 214 acres for 120 pounds.
      _______________________________________________________________________________
      NOTE: About Sevier genealogy: it suggests that the mother of Walter was Sarah Sackville or Sarah Alexander. Walter was
      born in 1764 and we know that by 1758 Thomas was married to Tillah White. See Source: White family deed dated 6 July 1758. John King's birthday was 12 January 1758 and his records say Sarah was his mother. Sarah may have died post partum. Then Thomas may have married Tillah White.
      An alternate possiblity not otherwise supported is that Sarah and Tillah are the same person, i.e.
      Tillah is a nickname for Sarah. ( I haven't been able to establish this ) Note from Don Latham King.
      Many researchers have suggested that Thomas's first wife must have been Sarah Sackville, mainly
      because of the first born given name. However, I have seen other men with the first name of Sackville, eg. one of Tillah's brothers in law.

      OLD HOME PLACES OF LOUISA COUNTY by Claudia Anderson Chisholm & Ellen Gray Lillie
      ( Louisa County Historical Society, Louisa, VA ) page # 77
      HARTLAND
      A home of the past, Hartland was situated on the south side of the South Anna River, off Old Mountain Road ( Route #640 ) and route #699. The original house called " Meadowood " was of brick construction and burned around 1876. Hartland was built over the same foundation. A two-story frame dwelling, with four rooms and a wide hall on each floor, and four rooms in the basement, it too burned in 1941 and was never replaced.

      Thomas King, Sr. and his wife, Tillah, daughter of John and Catherine White, owned this property in the early days of the county. In 1799 Thomas' heirs conveyed 263 acres of his land to Benjamin King, probably one of Thomas' sons. In 1802 Benjamin and his wife, Martha, sold this property to George Washington Truehart. Sometime later, Thomas King, Jr. and his sister, Catherine King, sold Truehart their shares of their father's estate.

      In 1801 George W. Truehart married Frances ( Fanny ) G. Overton, daughter of Colonel John and Susan Garland Overton of " Woodstock " in Goochland. The Trueharts resided at Hartland for almost thirty years and ran a water grist-mill on the South Anna River. In 1830 James and Henrietta Michie purchased the property, selling it the next year to Horatio Gates Winston of Dunlore. In 1837 the latter's widow, Clarissa Morris Winston, conveyed Hartland and the mill to Abner N. Harris.

      Until his death around 1859, Abner Nelson Harris, son of Nelson and Mary Pryor Harris of Buck Hill, made his home at Hartland with his wife, Lucy Bacon Overton Harris, daughter of Colonel John Overton of " Woodstock " and his second wife, Ann Bacon Overton. In 1866 Abner's heirs sold the house to James Malcom hart, who the previous year had married Mildred Dabney Farrar, daughter of Colonel Stephen and Susan Duncan Farrar of Rose Hill. It was during Hart's residence that the original brick house " Meadowood ", burned and was replaced by the frame dwelling, HARTLAND. James and Mildred died in 1899 and 1905, respectively, and both are buried on the property. Their son,
      Robert Campbell Hart, who married Louise Rebecca Hart, daughter of Charles T. and Bettie Edloe Jackson of Catalpa Hall, inherited the property. Robert died in 1927 and his widow, Louise, and his son, James Malcom Hart, Jr. own the property today.
