There is no record of disposition of this land in Charleston, and Colleton records are not extant.

They were living in St. Philips Parish in 1748-49 where John died in the early 1750's. Mary Winifred, called " Winnie " moved to Abbeville District, South Carolina near her son, Robert Norris, and is recorded in the family records as among those who were massacred by the Indians at Long Cane in February, 1760.
