Information on William Frame
William Frame born ca 1725 in Pennsylvania, married Susanna (Erwin?) ca 1745 in Augusta Co., Virginia. Susanna was born in 1727, the daughter of Matthew Erwin and Elizabeth Patterson. William owned 400 acres of land on Naked Creek near Staunton, Virginia. He later received a land grant for another 150 acres adjoining his lands. William was named as an administrator of Matthew Erwin's Will. This however does not prove that William is Matthew's son in law, as the Will did not name Susanna in it. William also was witness to many other documents during this time frame. William died in 1782 or 1783 in Augusta Co., Virginia. His Will is said to have been probated in Augusta Co., Virginia on 03 May 1783 (Need proof of said Will). Susanna migrated to Kentucky with her family.
