(1996) From [S004], “John Sitlington was the last of John Sitlington (Sr.)’s four sons to come from Northern Ireland to America. He arrived in 1774 and settled at Wallawhatoola Va., bringing with him his family of six daughters. It was he who became the AMERICAN ANCESTOR of all the Virginia Sitlingtons.” This is misleading; if John had only daughters, he could not have passed on the name to “all the Virginia Sitlingtons.” [S004] goes on to list six daughters plus one son, Robert Sitlington [R521], who was born in 1749 in Northern Ireland. Figure R512a is an abbreviated family tree of the Bath County Sitlingtons.
