  • Notes 
    • In 1760, John and Sarah deeded land to Thomas Monroe in Fairfax County, Virginia.

      He lived in Truro Parish, Virginia and was one of the early settlers of Oakton, Virginia and was a neighbor of General John C. Hunter. He had other children who were minors when his will was recorded on 28 Jul 1785. He left everything to his widow except his house and land which were bequeathed to his son, William.

      In 1786 there is record of payment to one Andrew Monroe from the estate of John Monroe, Gent.

      The Watson Monroe reference says John's father was "Andrew (1708 ?- ?)".

      John's will was dated 28 Jul 1785.
