4. Richard Walton ca 1743 – prior 1771 (div. of estate Chowan)
married
a. James Walton ca 1765 –
b. Ellinor Walton
c. Cretia Walton
Gates Co Ct records Feb 1786 – on motion of James Walton by Simon Stallings his guardian for leave to rebuild a Water Grist Mill which was built by Thomas Walton and given by him to his son Richard and by the said Richard to James Walton, Minor and that Charles Rountree as appears to the Court having some pretentions to Build a Mill on the same stream [Catherine Creek] Ordered that the said Charles be summoned to appear next Term and shew reasons to this Court why an Order May not be granted to the said James Walton to rebuild the said Mill.
[I am not certain to which Richard these records belong. This one or the brother of Palatiah.]
5. Sarah Walton ca 1745 –
6. John Walton ca 1748 (underage 1759)

Sarah Walton, widow and guardian of John Walton, orphan of Thomas Walton, dec’d. 1759.


John Walton ca 1715 – 1748
& Zilpah
& 1759 Guy Hill
of K&Q Co VA & Chowan Co [now Gates Co] NC


This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!


John Walton & wife Zilpha had:
from div. of estate of John Walton 10 Oct 1759 Chowan Co, NC archives
1. Robert Walton ca 1742 –
2. Mary Walton ca 1745 –
3. Sarah Walton ca 1748 –
1759 Timothy Walton made guardian of Robert orphan of John)

Zilpah Walton was administ. on est. of her deceased husband, John Walton, 1748, Edenton NC

It appears likely that Zilpha, the widow of John Walton, Jr., married secondly Guy Hill. When John’s estate was divided in 1759, Guy Hill received approximately 1/3 of the estate – the amount the widow would normally have gotten. Additionally, each of the three children’s share was given to Guy Hill for administration until they became adults. When Guy Hill died circa 1775, his wife was named Sarah indicating his second marriage after Zilpha’s death. (e-mail from Bob Nichols)
