    As stated previously Richard Ap Morgan having obtained a large grant of land
    on the Potomac in the vicinity of the old Packhorse Ford, and at what is now
    Shepherdstown, he was soon followed after his settlement there by a number of
    persons, to whom he sold various tracts, some of whose descendants retain
    possession of those first purchases to the present time. In 1734 Robert Harper
    settled at the junction of the 2 rivers, Potomac and Shenandoah, and
    established a ferry which he ran for many years, and to which locality he left
    his name. Thomas Shepherd also came about this time, and, obtaining possession
    of the German settlement, Mecklenburg, re-christened it after himself,
    Shepherdstown, but the village was not organized by law until 1762. Also came
    to the same vicinity William Strope, Israel Friend, Thomas and William
    Forester, Thomas and Van Swearingen, Edward Lucas, James Foreman, John Lemon,

WE ARE ASSUMING THIS ROBERT STOCKTON WAS JOHN STOCKTON'S FATHER; MAY NOT BE SO
the only clues to Robert's birth are: he was in VA 1734 with Morgan and
     probably 18-21; he was NOT named guardian of his sister's children, most
    likely  because he was traveling between PA and VA; he married a widow b.
    c1708 in about 1741, so he married later than usual. If Thomas b. 1709, Jane b
    c1711, and David about 1715, Robert was born abt 1713. A widow with 6 children
    was not likely to have a problem with a new husband a few years younger than
    she

ADDED AS CHILD OF ROBERT, 5/96, PER CC NEILSON, PG 9-2;
    ASSUMED TO BE THE FIRST BORN SON OF ROBERT STOCKTON, because Robert was in
    Frederick Co., VA, and living near Richard Morgan at this time period.
    THERE IS NO PROOF AT THIS TIME (JAN 1999) THAT THIS IS CORRECT.
    He is the first born child based on "not later than" marriage date of 1763.
    (Capt Richard Morgan's Will, naming dau. Olive Stockton, wife of John)
    His parents could not have married before 1740 when his mother's first husband
    died (John Fleming).  The earliest possible date for his birth is 1741, if
    correct, he married before age 22.

      attached to the Indian manner of living, that the desire to see his friends

      association had made dear. After he had grown up, he accompanied his tribe
      on a trading expedition to PA, and there determined to visit his friends in
      VA. A fondness for forest life had so intertwined itself with his very
      nature, that he could ill support the dull uniformity of society, and he

      woods. He settled at Stockton's station, in sight of Flemingsburg, in 1787

     became fond of indian life. He had lost interest in civilized life. Finally

     opportunity to visit his parents in VA. His mothers entreaties finally

    for Berkeley County the 17th day of June 1778 this account Current of the
    Estate of Robert Stockton dec'd was presented in Court and being examined and
    Compared with several vouchers and approved of the same is admitted to Record.
    Teste Will Drew, Co. Clerk.
NOTE: Clarence Smith sent this to me as the estate of Robert Stockton II,
    husband of Sarah (Keith-Fleming) Stockton. Robert II died about 1778,
    therefore I believe it to be the estate of his son Robert III, who died 1772
    at age 29, intestate.
