Some history ...
1722 The Treaty of Albany kept the American Indian nations west
of the Blue-Ridge. With this buffer, settlers began slowly to move into
the piedmont of present day eastern VA,Loudoun-Co & the rolling,
lush lands of the Loudoun-Valley in the western part of the county.
1720s A number of Quakers, Germans, Irish & Scots-Irish settled west
of the Catoctin mountains. Quakers formed the settlements of Waterford,
Goose-Creek (now Lincoln), Harmony (now Hamilton) & Union (now Unison).
1730-1735 Permanent settlers went from
Pennsylvania, New-Jersey & Maryland to the Loudoun-Valley.
The Loudoun Valley was broken up into smaller grants -
a few in the Middleburg/Upperville region given to tidewater planters,
but most given to immigrants from an overflowing Pennsylvania -
Quakers, Scots-Irish & Germans interested in starting small farms.
The Quakers had significant influence in the central Loudoun Valley,
settling in & around such communities as VA,Waterford (now a restored
historic village), Hillsboro, Goose-Creek (now Lincoln) & Unison.
Their stone buildings are a major feature of the VA,Loudoun-Co landscape.
German-Palatines settled in the northern end of the Loudoun Valley,
especially in the area around VA,Lovettsville leaving
a number of log structures as their architectural legacy.
Unlike the settlers to the east, neither of these groups believed
in the use of slaves, thus inaugurating a division that would
be important in the years leading up to the Civil War.
1757 Part of VA,Fairfax-Co went into the formation of VA,Loudoun-Co.
1860 VA,Loudoun-Co hefd within its boundaries 24,774 peope:
5,501 slave &
1,252 free colored.
> Andrew Redman, was born in VA, the Indian blood would likely be through
> William Redman and his wife, Catherine Elkins, both of Indian blood.
Could you please tell me more about the parents of this
William & Catherine ... how did they get their Indian blood ?
At first I thought you were referring to William REDMAN
m=abt.1650 VA,Stafford-Co to (Elizabeth) Anne=Annie ELKINS
(daughter of Ralph ELKINS, Sr. & ASHTON)
... but neither of them have an Indian background.
