Facts and Events
Some geologists include daughters
These individuals are not included in the list of children as recorded in Roberts will. There could be good reasons for that (eg, predeceased their father), but without direct evidence for their existence their inclusion as part of the child list is doubtful.
"Two partial lists of the children of Robert Poage are extant, one in the record of his importation which names nine, the other in his will, dated October 20, 1773 and probated March 6, 1774, which names eight but omits two daughters, Sarah, wife of Thomas Gordon, and Mary, wife of Robert Breckenridge, both of whom predeceased their father; Mary is known to have died young."
