      Conrad Starnes (born ca 1755, died ca 1800) married Margaret Brown on September 16, 1778 (bond). Their children:

      a. Jesse Starns (born ca 1776) married Rosanna Brown (his first cousin) on February 7, 1807.

      b. Rachel Starns (born ca 1779, died September 24, 1867) married John Brown ca 1805.

      c. James Starns (born ca 1781).

      d. Sally Starns (born ca 1783) married James Mitchell on September 16, 1805.

      e. Jacob Starns (born ca 1785) married Catherine Brown ca 1810.

      f. Elizabeth Starns (born ca 1787) married David G. McCardle on April 7, 1813.

      g. Margaret Starns (born ca 1789) married Benjamin Scroggins on August 18, 1819.

      h. Frederick A. Starns (born ca 1790, died 30 December 1873) married Elizabeth Salts (born ca 1793, died after 1874) on March 14, 1810.

      i. William Starns (born ca 1793) married Sally Holly on March 6, 1817.

      j. Adam Starns (born ca 1795).

      NOTE: This assignment is made based upon several factors. Conrad first appears in the records of Botetourt County, Virginia in 1772, and again in a 1774 muster roll in Virginia for Lord Dunmore's War. This is consistent with Conrad living with his father in Botetourt County, after being driven out of southwest Virginia during the French and Indian War. Note that Frederick Starnes, Jr., his son Jacob, his son John, and Conrad Starnes all appear on the tax rolls of Botetourt County for 1772. Conrad then appears in Rowan County, North Carolina in 1778, when he married Margaret Brown, daughter of Jacob Brown. This is the same Jacob Brown to whom Frederick Starnes, III, son of Frederick Starnes, Jr. was indentured in 1784. I do not think that this was a mere coincidence. Conrad appears frequently in the records of Mecklenburg County, North Carolina until the mid-1790's when he moved to eastern Tennessee. Somewhere I saw an article on Jacob Brown (which I have misplaced) that has information consistent with Conrad and his family moving to Tennessee in conjunction with Jacob Brown.

      Another theory on Conrad Starnes is that he was the son of Adam Starnes. This interpretation is based upon the will of Conrad Carlock. That will mentions his sister's two sons, Adam and Samuel Starnes. It also leaves a bay horse to Konrad Starnes, the son of Adam Starnes. The will is dated 1811. Adam Starnes, Jr. had a son, Conrad Starnes, who was born April 25, 1791. It is my belief that the horse was left to this 20 year old grandson of Conrad Carlock's sister, rather than to a man in his mid to late 50's.

      This Conrad Starnes was too old to have been the son of Adam Starnes, who was born ca 1732. He seems to fit better as a son of Frederick, Jr. The list of the children of Conrad Starnes is from a letter from Tommy Starns to Herman Starnes dated August 24, 1988.

      The notes I have, have Conrad Starnes, being buried in Leesburg Cemetery at Telford, Washington County, Tennessee. Also other notes say: the Brown Family Cemetery is also known as Leesburg Cemetery.

      General Notes: The person doing research, had thought he might have been born as early as 1754, but the Leesburg Cemetery reading says ca 1760. (Margaret Brown Anderson)

      I honor Conrad Starnes for his life here on Earth.

      I thank FAG contributor #47610897, for the name of Conrad's mother.
