    In the Washington County Virginia Surveyors book (1781-1797) it makes
    reference that they made settlement as early as 1771. Note that William
    Thompson married Nancy Jackson. John Jackson also has an entry with a
    settlement date of 1771 indicating that the Thompsons & Jacksons may
    have arrived together. Robert Vicars, who also married one of the
    Jackson daughters, has an entry with a settlement date of 1775. He may
    have arrived later than the others.
