Notes for Joseph Cash Sr.
This is the second son of the immigrant, William Cash, and is the start of our family line in America.
Owned a plantation in Brunswick Parish, King George County, Va. until 1733. At this time he was deeded 150 acres on the lower side of Doque creek, Turo Parish, William County by George and Ann Mason (his father-in-law) for the natural lives of Joseph Cash and his wife Susannah and daughter Ann. This part of Prince William County became part of Fairfax County in 1742 and its present location is directly along side of old U.S. highway 1 (post road) south of Alexandria near a village then called Occoquan. Over the years he purchased several hundred acres adjoining this property and by 1752 owned at least 959 acres.
Susannah died about 1749 and he remarried about 1750 to an Elizabeth believed to be a member of the Culverhouse families. In 1772, he was commioned to survey Doque creek road.
He and most of his family along with the Hall and Culverhouse families moved to Dutch creek road (later Dutch Ville) Granville County where he, his son Joseph Cash Jr. and grandson Joseph Cash Hall were granted approximately 1000 acres along picture branch creek.
