<< Was wondering if anyone out there may be familar with James Nowlin,
originally of Goochland County, Virginia, who later settled in Halifax. In
1771 he conveyed to his brother Stephen Nowlin, 150 acres in Goochland
County. Then in 1785 he conveyed Stephen Nowlin another 150 acres in the
same county, but this time he was a resident of Pittsylvania County.

I am trying to determine if this is the same James Nowlin that by 1791 was
living in Patrick County and who died there in 1816. This person had a wife
named Ursula, who may have been a Patterson or a Shelton. >>

Hello Truman,

I note your mention of Ursula SHELTON as a possible name for the wife. Would
you be willing to share your source for this information? My earliest
PROVABLE SHELTON was Roderick, who was in Patrick Co, VA as early as 1792 and
as late as 1796 before moving on to North Carolina. Roderick married a Sarah
(or perhaps Ursula) BRIGGS(?) and named one of his daughters Ursula. Because
of the unusual name, Ive often thought there might be some connection to
Roderick and the NOWLIN family, but so far have found none.

Im a member of a SHELTON list and have the following from researchers there.

>From pp. 177+ of the Nowlin-Shelton Book by James Edmund NOWLIN
The Nowlin line for James E Nowlin was:
Patrick Nowlan in Ireland
John Nowlan, whose 3 sons came to America
James Nowlin m Catherine Ward
James Nowlin II m Martha Collins
Bryan Ward Nowllin m Lucy Wade
Richard Wade Nowlin m Celia Shelton /dau Major Armstead
Shelton
Armistead Shelton Nowlin m Mary Eliza Stone
James Edmund Nowlin

Kurt GREEN, the moderator of the SHELTON list, forwarded the following tree.
It may be of some help in your query, although Im not sure how much. : )
Here is my tree, as shakey as it may be, for anyone brave enough to climb it!
