                             In 1820, this family lived in Rockingham Co NC, but
                            removed by 1824 to Warren Co KY where he bought 1000
                            acres for $2500. They later removed to Bowling Green KY.

 notes:  Richard owned land in the NE corner of Stokes County, adjacent to the
        Rockingham County border. At least five of his 11 children moved to
        Stokes and Rockingham Counties.

         He has been called "The Wagonmaster" and records show he served the
        military in the 1750s, and again during the Rev. War.

         On 5 Nov 1792, Richard Vernon of Culpeper Co., Va. confirmed that he
        had given his dau Joanna Vernon 200 Acres of land in Surry Co., NC
        (now Stokes Co.) in 1781. (Stokes Deed Book 1, page 359).

         On 10 Feb 1796, Richard Vernon of Madison Co., Va. (formed from
        Culpeper Co.) made a gift deed of 446 acres in Stokes Co., NC to his
        son-in-law John Vawter (Deed Book 2, page 389).
