    • ROBERT DEATHERAGE,a son of William Deatherage, first appears when he and his brother Philemon were chain carriers for the surveyor George Hume, surveying a 276 acre parcel of land for Robert Eastham in Orange County, now Rappahannock Co., Virginia, in the late 1740s. After this Robert is mentioned frequently in the land records of this part of Virginia until his death in 1777. He left a will dated 26 Jan 1775 and proved 20 Oct 1777, probated in Culpeper County which names his wife and minor children.

      About the year 1754 Robert married Mary Strother, daughter of Francis and Susannah (Dabney) Strother. Mary died in Culpeper County in 1810. She left a will dated 20 Jan 1810.

      After Robert's death in 1777 Mary married George Calvert, a widower and moved with her children into his home the "Horse Shoe." This farm is located on the Fodderstack Road in present Rappahannock Co., Virginia [William Deatherage (#8) purchased this farm from the heirs of George Calvert's son John. It was owned by members of William's family until 1954]. George Calvert was a captain in the Culpeper County Militia. He died in 1782 in Culpeper County.

      All of Robert and Mary Deatherage's sons apparently died without issue except William. According to family tradition Philemon "was a soldier of the Revolution and killed at Guilford County Court House." No casualty list for that battle has been found to verify that tradition, but Philip Deathridge (sic) was a private in the infantry of the "Virginia Line on Continental Establishment." Joseph Strother picked up a certificate due him for service on 16 Jul 1787 for 15-15-8.
