Surnames: Bennett, Butcher, Conrad, Elsworth, Fisher, Lough, Pence, Smith
Thank you very much. I do have the grant info from VLO. There may be more names than you were expecting, so please don't feel obligated.

Of the names below, I'm most interested in George Lough. He was in Pendleton Co. for less than 30 years, and I think only one of his children stayed behind when he moved to Randolph Co. in 1810. My Lough line emerged in Lewis Co., where descendants of almost everyone below married each other.

There may be Pendleton surnames missing that I'm unaware of. I don't have info on parcels purchased privately. I have just these state grants.
