JEMIMA PEYTON of Culpepper, Virginia

Updated research reveals that the JEMIMA PEYTON on pages 91 and 253 of PEYTONs Along the Aquia did not marry Benjamin WASH who went to Anderson County, Kentucky. I don't know what happened to JEMIMA after the mention in her grandfather's will. BENJAMIN WASH is a proven Revolutionary War soldier and in previous DAR records his wife was named as JEMIMA PEYTON. Recently, DAR has changed her name to "JEMIMA." From my recent research in Amherst County, Virginia records it appears that the "JEMIMA PAYTON" living there in 1784, was the widow of an unknown PAYTON. It is believed that she is the JEMIMA PAYTON who married secondly to BENJAMIN WASH and went with him to Kentucky.
