      He resided in Bourbon, Kentucky
      17 JOHN MARSHALL was born in Westmoreland County, Virginia., about 1732. He is said to have married JANE GUISENBURY. He was appointed an executor of his father's will, but failed to qualify. His father died in 1752, and John was then, perhaps, a minor. He came to Bourbon County, Kentucky., at an early day. He must have died about the year 1800. His name does not appear upon the records of Bourbon County. I have found no family records, and his posterity, now living, never heard of him.

      TO BE SOLD

      A TRACT of one thousand acres of LAND, in Orange county, near the courthoufe, and about 30 miles from Frederickfburg. The improvements on it are a new, convenient, and elegant, small dwelling house, kitchen, barn, and all other neceffary buildings, quite new, and in good order. It has a piece of valuable and extraordinary good meadow ground, which, as fome part of it is already inproved, with little expence might be made to fupport a very large stock. There is also a constant and plentiful stream running through it. As the land abounds in a great quanity of different kinds of timber, and is convenient to a well fettled neighbourhood, it is thought that either a saw or grist mill would be advantageous.
      The land in general is very level, fit for tobacco, and suitable for farming. Should any person incline to view it, Dr. J. Marsden, who resides on the premises, or Mr. Samuel Thompson, who lives near them, will be kind enough to fhew it. The terms, which shall be made in every refpect agreeable to the purchaser, may be known by applying to the subfcriber, at the Honourable Robert Carter’s; at Nomony, in Westmoreland county, J. MARSHALL.

      Do you know if there was a Walter Bayne in KY?
      I'm wondering if there could have been an error made when the land grant was recorded and its really Walter Bayne.
