It is Jonathan Poe. He was in Caswell Co. NC by 1784. He bought 250 acres of land on Country Line Creek on July 15, 1784. There was a James Poe listed as a witness on another deed in 1786.
Since Jonathan Poe was giving my relation Power of Attorney later, I wondered if they were kin to us. Obed Florence's wife Phebe was married once before. She married William Corder, and he died from a gun shot wound he got in the War. My Obed married Phebe Corder in 1782. We have never found out her maiden name, and wondered if she could have been a Poe, or at least related to the Poe Family.
