It would be great to know if they died in NC or Indiana. I was informed by my great-aunt who started the Starbuck research that the cabin was built by William. Perhaps it was built by Edward?? The info I have says:
In January 1808, William "proved up" on 160 acres of land in Franklin Township, Wayne County, Indiana, building a log cabbin in 1808, which stil stands (1938). About 1817 he built the first saw mill near the southwest corner of this township. In 1815 he gave the east half of his 160 acres to his beloved daughter, Abigail. This was on Arba Pike and is traceable. *The abstract shows that the land was sold by the United States of America and a later notation on it bears the name of James Madison, fourth president. This old cabin still stands on Morrow Road, seven miles northeast of Richmond, occupied until 1968. It is one of the few two story log houses of the pioneer period remaining in the country.* *written by Agnes Rettig, great, great, great granddaughter of William.
I'll do some more digging...and see what I can come up with!! Keep in contact please!!
