      -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------

      32. Sheriff John CRUMPLER Jr. was born about 1730 in Isle of Wight County, VA. He owned 110 acres in May 1757 in Duplin County, NC. Land Grant Book I
      "From Henry Easterling to John Crumpler of the Province of North Carolina and Duplin County, for 20 pounds gold, 110 acres of land on Moccoson Branch on this side of Cohary, beginning at a Spanish Oak ---. From patent Grant of His Excellency Arthur Dobbs, Esquire, Governor and Commander-in-Cheif, on the date of May 1757."

      When Sampson County was formed in 1784 from Duplin County, this property was in Sampson County.
      He was a Sheriff between 1765 and 1782 in Duplin County, NC. He signed a will on 7 Feb 1782 in Duplin County, NC.(15) (16) Son John, one of the executors named in the Will, appeared before the court and qualified by "taking oathe of an Executor." Named children: Jacob, John, Rachel (or Grace Rachel), Sarah, Nancy, Elizabeth, and Cajah. Jacob was married at that time. John, the next son was possibly still single. He was to look after the interests of the younger siblings. Rachel was surely not of age; to wit: "I give my daughter Rachel Crumpler five cows and calves to be paid her at age 21, or married, if the stock be sufficient for all the rest of her younger brethren --- and ten pounds of silver or gold." It would appear that young John's hundreds of acres of land was not noly for himself, but prooportionately for the younger siblings. In addition, each of the younger ones were to receive certain household goods, farming equipment, cattle and ten pounds of gold or silver. ---- William Stacy Crumpler
