    • PHILEMON DEATHERAGE2 (William1) was probably the son of William. He died in 1778 in Guilford Co., North Carolina.

      Philemon married Elizabeth -. She died in 1827.

      The first mention of Philemon I have found is in the late 1740s when he and his brother Robert 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. On 26 Aug 1759 in Culpeper Co., Virginia, land records, Philemon mentions "My brother Robert." Three years later in 1762 Philemon purchased 689 acres on the Mayo River in Rowan Co., North Carolina.

      Philemon's will, dated 24 Jan 1778, names his wife Elizabeth; children George, Sarah, Bird, Achilles, Solomon, James and Mary Deatherage; and a boy bound to him John Davis alias John Hand. His children were all minors as he made provisions for their education. He named his brother George Deatherage, his son George Deatherage and his friends Joshua Smith and James Joyce as his executors. The will was witnessed by James Cook, Alexander Smith, and James Galloway. At the beginning of the will his name is written Philemon Deatherage and he signed his name "Phil Deatherage."

      Elizabeth, Philemon's widow, continued to live in what became Rockingham Co., North Carolina, until her death. She wrote her will on 23 Jun 1824. It was probated in Rockingham County in Aug 1827. She named her granddaughters Patsey Rhodes, Ellender G. Fishner, Sarah Deatherage, Sally Watt, Elizabeth Joyce; and her grandsons Granville Norman Deatherage (son of Pennsylvania Deatherage), Robert Dalton, William Dalton, and James Dalton. She named as her executor her neighbor Nathaniel Scales. Her will was witnessed by Jno. Joyce and Ambrose Joyce. Sources
