I am a little confused, I think in the "title" of your question you meant Jane, not Ann, who married George. They are my ancestors.  I also would like to know who Jane was, have yet to come across anything yet (have been doing genealogy for about 40+ years. I am descended from George Jr.

For Jane, see: http://salem.lib.virginia.edu/texts/tei/BoySal2R?div_id=n90
