NINTH GENERATION


392. George Poage was born on Mar 28 1754 in Augusta County, VA.(33)

The Poages had quite a bit of land in Augusta County in Virginia.  There are many land deeds on record and land sales. It seems they had a total of over 700 acres. However, it seems they also had a bit of restlessness, since, in the cases of some like George, they set out on their own to new states. 

It is clear that George was engaged in military service, but his rank and service varies in different accounts.

George Poage served as a Captain in the Revolutionary War in the Augusta County, Virginia Militia, 3rd Battallion, and he also served as a justice.
