See Richard Crews, Billups family, Stokes family references in the link below.
Lunenburg County - DB4, P 418 May 3, 1757 James Cole of Lun. to Richard Crew of same-Wts: Wm. Stokes, John Cole, Christopher Billups

Note by Mike Terry: This suggests that Evans Stokes may have spent some time in North Carolina before moving to Edgefield, South Carolina.
There is a 1751 note where a Richard Stokes and Richard Crews appear in Lunenburg as appraisers. It may mean they are neighbors?

Edgefield County, South Carolina: Deed Books 16, 17, 18, Books 16-18 By Carol Wells
1774 September 8, Will of Catharine Journey: daughter Elizabeth Petty Poole; granddaughter Catharine Petty Poole; son John Journey; grandson William Journey, son of John; grandson Seth Petty Poole; Executor: son John Journey, grandson Seth Petty Poole; witness: Richard Crews, Ann Crews, John Stokes; recorded: 9 March 1775
Note by Mike Terry: In 1774 this could be John Stokes b 20 Mar 1756 the son of David m Sarah Montfort, although he would only be 18 or 19 years of age.
Interesting facts we know by Mike Terry....
(1) Group 01 Stokes DNA results compare very favorably with at least 10 or 11 Crews males.
(2) See 1751 Lunenburg Co VA tax with David Stokes and Crews neighbors
(3) See 1773 Lunenburg Co VA tax list with David Stokes and Crews neighbors
(4) The Stokes Virginia are predominately R1b1b2, particularly the Southside Virginia Stokes. Whether we have a bonified descendant of Christopher Stokes in our DNA mix I'm not sure. I would certainly like to see more haplogroup I1 Stokes with Virginia links.
I had known about this Robert Stokes since I started my Terry-Stokes-Clement research back in the 70's. Now I know who he is. Robert E. Stokes m Rachel Clement a daughter of Obediah Clement and Sarah Terry who would be a genetic Terry cousin to me. The Clement family came from Hanover Co VA to Granville Co NC to Edgefield Co SC.
See the Stokes families in the 1850 census in Hinds County, Mississippi.
Deed Book 8: 1793-1794, Edgefield Co, SC:
"Pp. 1 May 1789: Richard STOKES of Lunenburg Co, VA to his grandchildren, Evan STOKES, Ludwell STOKES, Batt STOKES, Wilmyrth STOKES, Greenberry STOKES & Robert STOKES, for love & affection give a negroe girl named Esther with her increase, use of waggon & horses, plantation utensils & household furniture. /s/ Rich'd STOKES. Wit: Henry STOKES, George BARNES, Woodson KNIGHT, James BARNES, William CAIN, William BLACKLEY, who swore by oath 19 Aug 1793 before James HARRISON, J. P. Rcd. 2 Sep 1793"
This would be another avenue to find a male Stokes descendant of Richard Stokes the presumed brother of David Stokes m. Sarah Montfort. It looks like Robert E. Stokes had several male Stokes relatives in Hinds County, Mississippi. I believe in 2010 they are all out of the "Grandfather Richard Stokes".
