1810 – Jane Southerland to George Southerland, half interest in land in King's Branch, fell to them by heirship, from their father, John Southerland, who patented in 1784. (Duplin County).

Note: They may very well have been “our” George, for he had a son named John and a daughter named Jane. Southern customs often lead parents to name children after siblings or their own parents or grandparents.
