  • Notes 
    • SOURCE NOTES: From Peytons of Virginia
      Occupation: Clerk of Stafford County Court ( 1748 ); Justice, 1752, of " Dumphries " Prince William Co.,
      VA ( Reference to him being a militia captain at Valley Forge is probably from confusion with one of his sons ).

      SOURCE NOTES: General John Edwards King, of Kentucky
      A Sketch by His Great Grandaughter, Goode King Feldhauser, of St. Paul Minnesota.

      William King, Clerk of the Court and Justice of Stafford Co. 1742-1760

      SOURCE NOTES:
      The King Family, Compiled by Dr. G.M.G. Stafford, Baton Rouge, Louisiana

      Page #4: William King, eldest son William Alfred King and Sophia Burgess, was born in Stafford Co., VA
      in 1711. He is sometimes designated as William Valentine King, and at other times as Valentine King.
      The Stafford county official records and the Overwharton Parish Register clearly show this to be an error.
      John Edwards King, a grandson of General John Edwards King, ( on of this William ), in writing to his cousin, John Quincy Adams King, in 1878, has this to say on the subject: " I am in possession of a pile of letters and some important papers relative to our King Family. Some of our relatives are of the opinion that our great grandfather's name was Valentine, but they are mistaken. Our grandfather, General John
      Edwards King, who certainly knew his fathers name, explicitly tells my father ( Valentine King ) in two seperate letters, that his father's name was William. Writing to my father in 1825 as to what name should be given to my brother, then an infant, he says, " My father's name was William, my brothers
      name is William, your brother's name is William- why not call him William?" This should definitely settle the dispute.
