Re: Cartwrights in Loudoun County

Nicodemus is in the household of Bushrod Singleton in 1860... There appears to be a Singleton/Cartwright connection.

In 1932 a Katherine Singleton married Rolland Hayes Thomas in Warren Co., Ohio who is/was my 2Cx1R. Katherine was a great-grand niece of Bushrod Singleton. So, this 'tidbit' you dropped on us will now cause me to look again at my Lebanon/Harveysburg connections in the Warren County, Ohio area of Thomas/Singleton/Bridges/Warwick/Wise family lines. I may have a collateral connection with these Cartwright's of Loudoun Co. VA.

Khathu, Thanks ..... I think ;)
