"Mr. John Taliaferro was a frontiersman, as per his testimony given before the commissioners to settle the boundary between the Colony of Virginia and the royal grant by King James of the "Northern Neck" to Lord Culpepper, which had descended to Lord Fairfax, who had married his daughter. These commissioners were to determine the upper waters of tlie Rappahannock river. According to Col. Wm. Byrd, of Westover, one of the commissioners on the part of the Crown, as recorded by Rev. Phil. Slaughger in "History of St. Mark's Parish," page 25, the following is his testimony: "Jno. Taliaferro, Gentleman, aged forty-nine years, saith about the year 1707, he came to live where hs now lives above 'Snow Creek,' nine miles below the falls, and there were then but three settlement* above his house on the south side of the river. He had been acquainted with the fork of the river above twenty-four years and that one of the forks was called South River until Governor Spotswood, above twenty years ago, named the south branch 'Rapidan,' and it has ever since been so called." The final decision of the boundary gave Lord Fairfax the original county of Culpepper, now included in the present counties of Culppper, Madison and Rapahannock." Image.

John of "Snow Creek" is the Major John, who was requested "to bring up the Surplice" in 1730 to the established church at Germana; he was a man of note in the Colony. He was married Dec. 22, 1708 to Mary Catlett, daughter of John Catlett, Jr. and Elizabeth Gaines, his wife. The Catlett's owned a large estate at the mouth of Golden Vale Creek in present Caroline County. Col. John Catlett, Jr., (b. 1658), was a son of Col. John Catlett, Sr., and his wife, Elizabeth Underwood, who had been previously married to the first Francis Slaughter. According to the Westover Papers, Col. John Taliaferro settled at Snow Creek in 1707. Snow Creek flows into the Rappahannock River a short distance from Fredericksburg. When John Taliaferro and Francis Thornton settled there, that section belonged to Essex County, and they were near neighbors and brothers-in-law, the latter having married the formers sister, Mary. John Taliaferro, a Justice of Spotslyvania 1720; a vestryman of St. George's Parish, 1725.
Col. John of "Snow Creek" (1687-1744) and his son, Lawrence Taliaferro (1721-1748) were first buried at Old Hickory Neck Church, in James City Co., near the present village of Toana; up to some thirty-five or forty years ago, their tombs were well preserved.

At the present time no trace of them remains, except that a few fragments of the stone of Lawrence Taliaferro have been discovered and have been embeded in the cement floor of the small entrance porch which has recently been added to the venerable little building. A description of these tombs can be found in Vol. IX., Virginia Historical Collections. Bishop Meade has but a little to say about Old Hickory Neck Church: "The building is the original one," he records, "now much out of repair and used indiscriminately by various sects." It was for many years used as a schoolroom. No one knows when it was built, but it must have been some time prior to 1744." Image.

Rebecca and Francis were parents of:

Francis Conway, II (1722-1761) In 1744 Francis Conway, II married Sarah Taliaferro (daughter of Charles Taliaferro, Jr. and Sarah Thornton).

Eleanor Rose "Nelly" Conway
(1731-1829). Nelly married Col. James Madison, Sr. Their first chilld was James Madison, who was elected the fourth President of the United States of America and the co-author of the Federalist Papers and Father of the American Constitution.


Catlett Conway, Sr.(1751-1827). Catlett married Susannah Fitzhugh.


Following the death of Francis Conway, Rebecca (Catlett) Conway married John Moore whose will was probated, in King George County, VA in 1749.

Rebecca Catlett (Conway) Moore's will was made 6 Nov., 1759, and was probated 8 March, 1760.

Source for the birthdate of Rebecca Catlett is: Stubbs, Dr. & Mrs. William Carter, "A History of Two Virginia Families, Transplanted from County Kent, England; Thomas Baytop, Tenterden, 1638, and John Catlett, Sittingbourne, 1622.", pg. 18.

Source for the marriage date of Rebecca to Francis Conway: King, George Harrison Sanford, Marriages of Richmond County, VA 1668-1853" Fellow American Society of Genealogists, Fredericksburg, VA, 1964. p. 248.

Further source for Rebecca's possible dob:
I would suggest a date of birth for Rebecca much earlier than your 1707. According to the family bible of Francis Thornton 1st who was her husband's grandfather, “Francis Conway was married to Rebecca Catlett the 21 day of October in the year of our Lord 1717 It being a Monday when the Clock struck two in the afternoon. Our first[born] is Catlett Conway & he was born ye 11th January it being on ----- day in the year of our Lord 1719.” With Francis (born 1696) and Rebecca marrying in 1717 and their first child born in 1719, her date of birth would mostly likely have been between 1696 and 1702. Some sources give 1702 (without citation) but I tend to think ca. 1698 is more accurate. Thanks Mark Hale." Image.

Jonathan was a controversial burgess representing Caroline County during the 1730s and, after moving to Orange County ca. 1740, he held the office of county clerk there. That position was attained through the influence of his cousin Edmund Gibson, the Bishop of London. Jonathan is said to have died by accidental poisoning in 1745 in Orange Co., Virginia, where his will was recorded. (Bio by Mark Hale)." Image.
