    Notes 
    • (1) William FROST (son of Reubin) is listed as a tithable on a 1800 tax list of Northampton County, VA; therefore, according to that list, he was then over 16 years of age, and was born before 1784. See:

      (2) Edward L. Frost III:

      William FROST was a solider in the War of 1812 in Capt Nathaniel Widgeon's Company, 27th VA Regiment.

      (3) A household headed by Wm. FROST is listed in the 1840 census of Northampton, VA. [His surname is listed as FROOT in the index to the 1840 census.]

      Listed in Wm.'s household are 1 free white male between 20 and 30 years of age; 1 free white male between 50 and 60 years of age; 2 free white females between 20 and 30 years of age; and 3 free white females between 40 and 50 years of age.

      Assuming that Wm. is the free white male listed in the 1840 census as then between 50 and 60 years of age, he would have been born between 1880 and 1890, according to the 1840 census.

      (4) William FROST is listed in a household headed by his son, Rheuben, in the 1850 census of Northampton County, VA. [The compiler believes that Rheuben's given name was really Reuben.]

      William is listed in the 1850 census as a sailor who was then 68 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1782. According to the 1850 census, he was born in Northampton County, VA.
