CORPL and SGT 15th VA REGT REV. WAR 1776-1779

Will dated Sept 19, 1809. Tombstone reads d. 1809. Died abt 1816.

Regarding his actual date of death: On 19 May 1815, Benjamin Sublett Sr. of Warren KY conveyed to his son Benjamin B. Sublett "for natural love, 183 acres where I now live". Source: Page 21 "The Sublett (Soblet) Family of Manakintown, King William Parish, Virginia" compiled by Cameron Allen. Hence, Benjamin must have been alive in 1815.

There is no headstone for Benjamin's wife Elizabeth Jordan Sublett in this cemetery, as reported by Find A Grave volunteer who conscientiously checked for us. Elizabeth reportedly died in Virginia in 1791 (most likely in Charlotte County where they had been living for several years) prior to Benjamin and his sons having moved to Kentucky. So, please be aware that Elizabeth's gravesite is most apparently as yet to be located and is most likely in Virginia.
