      Joseph FROST Sr.

      ABT 1710 - ____ . . .

      • RESIDENCE: Amherst and Bedford Co. VA
      • BIRTH: ABT 1710, Amherst or Bedford Co. Virginia . . .

      "Family tradition from several branches of the family relate that two Frost brothers migrated to America from Wales. This has yet to be documented. There were several Frosts in New England before 1700 and four different Frosts in Virginia in the 1600's (John, Thomas, William and Edward). No will or probate records have been found of Joseph Frost Sr. to document his heirs. Thomas Frost sold lands belonging to Jospeh [sic] Frost (Sr.) indicating that Joseph was probably Thomas's father and Thomas was settling the estate of his father. These lands were surveyed for Joseph in 1763 and 1765 totaling 220 acres adjoining each other. Our Frost family may have been one of the early settlers of Jamestown, the first permanent settlement in America 1609."

      [Note by compiler: This source falsely claims that the parents of Joseph FROST, Sr. were Wright FROST and Mary UNDERHILL. Wright FROST and Mary UNDERHILL did have a son named Joseph FROST, but that son was not the same person as the Joseph FROST, Sr. of Amherst County, VA. The Joseph FROST who was a son of Wright FROST and Mary UNDERHILL was born 14 March 1713/14, died 14 January 1774 in Cortlandt, Westchester County, NY, and is listed elsewhere in this database. That Joseph FROST, who married Mary COCK, left a will dated 15 October 1773, proved 10 February 1774, naming his sons, Wright, Michael, Caleb and Jacob; and his daughters, Elizabeth, Hannah, Sarah and Anne.]
