Susan Vause Inskeeep born abt 1739 married Abraham Inskeep in 1764.

[[From the Moorefield Examiner Moorefield, West Virginia 1906 THE INSKEEPS by H. E. Wallace Jr.

When and where he was married is not positively known but he married Susan Vause, daughter of William and Jemima (Hedges) Vause, and their wedding certainly took place in 1764 in Hampshire county, which then in 1756, the date of its erection included all northwestern Virginia. Abraham's age when he married was but nineteen, and the years of his wife were twenty-five. Where they established themselves and where their first children were born is not known, but it is more than probably that it was on a part of the identical land he afterwards leased August 3rd, 1773 on the South Branch of the Potomac, from Lord Fairfax, designated as lots 40 and 41, containing 456 acres. This is the first recorded legal transaction in which Abraham Inskeep is named and this land which was released by John Marshall January 14, 1797, was his homestead and upon this he erected his home and later the brick house, still standing, was erected by his son Isaac in 1843 and 4. Abraham and Susan (Vause) Inskeep had nine children born to them, every one of whom lived to be married and the parents of children.
