OLIVER TOWLES b 1 Sep 1735 Midddlesex Co, VA d 18 Nov 1821 s/o John & Margaret Daniel Towles, marr @1767 Mary Beverly Chew b @1735 Spotsylvania, VA and had Oliver M Towles b Feb 1771 who marr Agatha Lewis. (VA Genealogies)
OLIVER TOWLES b @1710 Middlesex, VA d May 1770 Spotsylvania s/o Stokeley & Ann Vallott Towles, marr @1733 Mary Gillison. No known issue.
In Spotsylvania County Records, Page 229 is the first appearance of O (Oliver) Towles and it has "Jr" behind it. This transaction took place 1 Aug 1763. This oliver Towles Jr next appears 4 Jun 1764.
P-245 This Oliver Towles Jr now has the title of "Atto-at-law" (7 Oct 1765).
P-254 Is the first mention of Oliver Towles with his wife Mary.
P-273 From this page the "Jr" is dropped from Oliver Towles.
P-277 Talks about Oliver & Mary and her previous marr to John Smith.
P-278 Thomas Towles first appears (20 Dec 1770). This Thomas if possibly the s/o Stokeley & Elizabeth Martin Towles of Lancaster Co, VA who marr Mary Chew Smith d/o Mary Beverly Chew Smith who later marr Oliver Towles.
P-321 Has Thomas Towles & Mary his wife (19 Oct 1775).
P-323 This is first mention of Stockley Towles along with Thomas & Oliver (17 Nov 1775).
P-431-2 Mentions Oliver Towles, dau Molly, wife of Archibald Dick, Oliver Jr & Harry Beverly Towles, sons of sd. Oliver Towles & Mary his wife (2 Mar 1790)
In "Our Folks" by Maron Summer Eve the Oliver Towles who migrated to SC is the s/o John and Margaret Daniel Towles but no solid proof is given. He only works on an ASSUMPTION. Who is the Oliver Towles Jr he talks about in Caroline Co, VA? I can only locate the s/o Stokeley and Ann Towles. Would Oliver Jr of Caroline be the s/o of this Oliver, s/o Stokeley & Ann? According to the Towles Genealigies of VA this Oliver left no known issue. Can someone give solid proof that the Oliver Towles of SC was the s/o John & Margaret or is everyone going on the word and ***ASSUMPTION*** of Eve. Even DAR records give the Oliver b 1 Sep 1735 as being the s/o of John & Margaret and dying 18 Nov 1821 in Lynchburg, VA.
