James Starke and Martha "Patsy" Bowcock married 01 Oct 1801 in Albemarle County, Virginia, He would have been 25 she would have been about the same age. According to Census of 1850 Albemarle County, Virginia it shows that they
had one son John age 19 he would have been born about 1831. Why would they both wait that loing to have children? I believe that they had other sons and Daughters and that Christopher, William and John Lee Starke were the Grandchildren, as they show also on the 1850 Census for Albemarle County, Virginia but in the house hold of Thomas R. Bailey and his wife Eliza Ann Brand could Eliza have been married to the boy's father before marrying Thomas R. Bailey or where they bond out to learn the trade of Shoemakeing?
