     Sarah Turner was born on 27 March 1781, daughter of Stephen Turner and Susannah Hamner.1 She was also known as Salley and as Sally.

     On 14 October 1799, she is named in her father's will of this date and was unmarried.2

     Sarah Turner and Moses Thornton obtained a marriage bond on 23 December 1800 in Warren County, North Carolina.3,4,5

     Sarah Turner, 19, married Moses Thornton, son of Presley Thornton and Mary (--?--), on 23 December 1800 in Warren County, North Carolina.5

     I believe Leonard H. Thornton, enumerated in 1860 living with Moses, was their son as was Wiley Thornton (living immediately adjacent to Moses), but, I have no documentation at this time for this.6

     On 3 August 1847, I Moses Thornton of the County of Pittsylvania
do make this my last will and testament as follows:

First I give to my wife Sally during life
all that portion of my land lying on the East Side of the Henry Road, on
which I now reside together with one third of my slaves for life. Also
one third of all other personal property owned by me and such portion of
my household and kitchen furniture as she may desire all of which she may
take at the appraised value.

Secondly I desire my Executor hereinafter named
to sell all the balance of my land except that held by my wife to convey
the same and divide the proceeds thereof equally among my seven children
and to divide the balance of my slaves and personal property (after allowing
my wifes portion) equally among them. Such division of my slaves to be
made either in kind or by sale as may be desired by my children or a majority
of them.

In the division of my estate among my children
I desire and direct the following advancements heretofore made to be accounted
for vis:

My son Wiley Thornton to account for $228.78,
my daughter Susan, wife of Turner Gosney for $233.00; my
daughter Mary, wife of John Thornton for $229.50; my son
Leonard H. for $29.23; my son James E. Thornton for $58.25;
my son Harden N. Thornton for $69.22; my son Presley D. Thornton
for $567.20.

Thirdly after the death of my wife Sally I give
the portion of my estate held by her for life to be equally divided among
my aforesaid children. The land above designed for my wife is all that
part my land lying on the East side of the road leading from Col. Joseph
Martin's in Henry towards Danville.

Lastly I do hereby constitute and appoint my son
Wiley Thornton my Executor. Witness my hand this 3rd day of August 1847.
(signed) Moses (X) Thornton
Witness: William M. Tredway, Ezekial Giles, Greenberry Thornton in Pittsylvania County, Virginia.7

     Find a Grave has a memorial page for her that claims she was born 27 Mar 1779 and died 10 Jul 1850 with a non-cemetery burial, although a note on the site states she is buried 1/4 mile off the road behind the house at 244 West Fork Road, Cascade, Virginia. Absolutely no documentation is available. This date of date is either incorrect or several census enumerations had her age incorrectly.8

     Bottom line: I cannot find any more relevant data as of 30 Jun 2020.

     John Payne was born on 1 March 1754 in Bedford County, Virginia. He was the son of Joseph and Phoebe Payne.1,2

     John Payne married Elizabeth Litt.3

     I believe this was the John Payne listed on the 1810 Tax List in Capt. Allen's Company at Sumner County, Tennessee.4

     John gave a deposition regarding his Revolutionary War service to the County Clerk, Captain A. H. Douglass, on August 21, 1832 in which he stated that he had enlisted in Bedford County, Virginia for two years on February 9, 1776 under Capt. Gross Scruggs and was attached to the 5th Regiment of the Virginia Line commanded by Col. Stevens or Stevenson. He marched to Portsmouth and remained there and in the vicinity until the 11th of August when he applied for furlough until he could recover his health. Apparently, he had been unable to perform his duty due to illness. He was unable to rejoin his regiment due to ill health. After Captain Scruggs served out his term of two years, he returned home and gave John Payne a full and complete discharge. As a result of this deposition, John Payne was granted a pension of $20 a year, which he collected until his death in 1839.

     John Payne died on 14 September 1839 at age 851 and was buried in John Payne Burying Ground, Mulloy, Sumner County, Tennessee.1,2

     John Graves was born between 1766 and 1784.2

     John Graves and Lucy Turner obtained a marriage bond on 17 November 1807 in Amherst County, Virginia, with Robt. Garland as bondsman.1

     John Graves married Lucy Turner, daughter of James Turner and Rebecca Hamner, after 17 November 1807 in Amherst County, Virginia.1,3

     On 2 April 1812, 100 acres of land appearing to be a part of James Turner's estate considered as residual and not specifically designated in his will, but left to his daughters in an undivided interest was sold to William Hamner for $500 in Nelson County, Virginia.4,5

     An undocumented family tree on Rootsweb WorldConnect has them both dying in Lincoln County, Missouri between 1847 and 1848. However, I could not find them in the 1840 census anywhere in Missouri, going through six different John Graves listings (none were the right age by far). The same site shows a number of children.

     I did not find any will or estate administration for either of them in Lincoln County, either through browsing the various relevant digitized microfilm. This is not definitive at this stage, but makes the supposition they died there more unlikely.

     However, I did find a William Graves, born 1815 in Virginia with his wife, Sarah, born c1828 in Virginia. I also found a Thomas Graves, born c1811 in Virginia, living in Lincoln County, Missouri, with his family: wife Nancy, also born in Virginia and children: William, age 9; Joseph, age 7; James M., age 6 and Eliza J., age 2, all of whom were born in Missouri. Also living with him was a William B. Arnold, age 62, born in Virginia.6
