Valentine Bostick (b.1700/1715/1730):  by: Exerted from the research compiled Jane Bostick Horn:

." VALENTINE3 BOSTICK (CHARLES2, CHARLES1)19 was born Abt. 1700 to 1730, and died October 24, 1774/77.. He married MARY (W/O VALENTINE BOSTICK)21. She was born Abt. 1730.

They bought 400 Ac. From his uncle John Bostick, in Goochland Co. Va (Bk. 3 pg 134, dated, 20 June 1738). He sold this same 400 Ac. (Bk 3. Pgs.415, dated 4 Dec. 1740) This deed reads in part; Valentine Bostick of Hanover Co. to John Woodson, for the sum of 40 £. For 400 Ac. In St. James Parish, in Goochland Co. on North side of Appomattox River, granted by patent to John Bostick 8 Sept. 1736, and the said Bostick, sold to the aforesaid Valentine Bostic, located on Branch of Great Guinea Creek joining corner of William Bostick, late of Goochland Co. Valentine Bostick was in Orange Co. Va. In 1744 as per a petition dates, 28 Feb. 1744, by Valentine Bostick to keep an Ordinary (an eating house) in his home. (ref. Orange Co. Va. Road Orders 1734-1749, pg. 106, by Ann Brush Miller (Orange Co. Historical Society, Charlottesville, Va.

Migration from VA to GA: ( Note: Valentine’s Uncle: John and Elizabeth (Chesley) Bostick moved to Georgia in 1763 and were granted 250 acres of land eight miles above Augusta, Georgia. John Bostick was aged thirty years when he died November, 1767, in St. Paul Parish, Georgia shortly after moving there from Virginia. One of their sons, Nathan Bostick, lived in Surry County, North Carolina, until after the end of the Revolutionary War, when he moved to Richmond County, Georgia. This is a proposed reason for Valentine’s migration to GA. He returned on Onslow co., NC where  he died in 1774/77.  

It is recorded that the "Early settlers of Liberty County, GA suffered a high mortality rate due to malaria and yellow fever.  Liberty county border the great Ogeechee Swamp, a perfect breading spot for fever carrying mosquitoes. . Influenza and typhoid fever flourished in the south during this time. ( The Revolutionary Ware 1775-1782 130,000 North Americans lost their lives to smallpox)

In April of 1786, a census of Duplin Co. NC was returned. Listed in Capt. Southerland's district were 116 families of which one was Charles Bostick. We can assume with some degree this is this Charles Bostick. Listed on this census in addition to Charles and Nancy were five sons and five daughters.
