From “Descendants of Jacob Faubion”
On March 14, 1808, Jacob and  Diannah's oldest daughter, Sally (Faubion) Broadhurst, died in Cocke County, Tennessee. Later that year, on May 2,1808, Jacob and Diannah sold land

in Faquier County, Virginia which Diannah had inherited from her father, Henry Rector. The land was sold to George Glasscock, husband of Diannah's sister, Hannah.
Dianah Rector's history is well set out in The Germanna Record, No. 4 and 5, which takes herRector/Richter and Fischbach family lines back to Tyl van Fispe in the Nassau-Siegen area

of the German Palatinate in the fifteenth, and sixteenth centuries. Her mother is believed to be Ann "Nancy" Spencer because, as was the custom of the period to give a son the maiden

name of the mother, Henry and Ann Rector named a son "Spencer" and the name was carried down for a number of generations. The Germanna Record No. 4, page 13, paragraph (7),

contains the indication that Ann, wife of Henry Rector, might be the sister or daughter of James Spencer of Prince William County, Virginia.
Hannah Rector Glasscock was born in 1752 at Fauquier County, Virginia.  She married George Glascock , son of John Glascock , Sr.) and Margaret O'Rear Young, in 1770 at Fauquier

County, Virginia.  She died in Sep 1826 at Fauquier County, Virginia. Buried on Rockburn Farm, near Rectortown, VA

DeathSEP 1816
Aged: 66.7 years

The father of Hannah Rector was John Rector:

Another Side of John Rector
by Joan W. Peters

John Rector, who founded Rectortown in 1722, is well known as the motivational force behind Fauquier County's first incorporated town. He is also known, along with his parents, John

and Elizabeth (Fischbach) Rector, as one of the 1714 German emigrants wo ultimately found his way to Germantown, then part of Prince William County. These events are well

documented. Rectortown's incorporation can be found in "Hening's Statutes". John Rector's early life, along with his parents and other Germanna settlers, can be found in the pages of the "Germanna Record".  Fauquier County court records reveal yet another face of John Rector, one not nearly so well known. He was a land speculator and developer, who almost singlehandedly, created the circumstances leading to the Rectortown incorporation. In December 1770, John Rector, planter, purchased 4,874 acres in Fauquier County described as "on or near Goose Creek" from Burgess and Mary Ball of Lancaster County. This parcel was part of a much larger patent

granted to Col. Charles Burgess of Lancaster County in 1731. The patent was inherited, ultimately, by two of Burgess' grandsons, Burgess Smith and Burgess Ball. In a division ordered by the Prince William County Court in 1757 but not recorded until September 1763, Burgess Ball Ball received 5,325 acres of the Burgess patent. This land was located on Goose Creek and Cromwell's Run.
Ball began to sell the land, the greatest portion going to John Rector. This tract is roughly between Goose Creek, Route 50, Hatcher's Mill Road and Route 710 in the northern part of

Fauquier. In September 1771, less than one year later, John Rector made his first sale within this tract-157 acres to John Kincheloe. Other sales quickly followed. He sold 15 parcels,

ranging from 157 acres to 431 acres, in October of the same year.

John Rector (The Fauquier Democrat-June4, 1987)-part 2

Isaac Sundiff, Richard McPherson, William Murray, and John Squires were among these buyers. The majority of the land, however, stayed within the family or was sold to relatives. His

sons Charles, Jacob, and Henry received 157 acres each; his brothers Henry and Jacob bought 150 and 100 acres. The Glasscocks - George, Hezekiah, and Thomas-received an aggregate of 858 acres. George and Thomas Glasscock both had Rector connections. George married Hannah Rector, a daughter of John's brother, Henry. George left, by will, as a life estate for his wife, his mansion dwelling and the tract of land he purchased from John Rector. George also left a portion of his Rector purchase to his son Hezekiah. To son Jesse Glasscock, he left the tract upon which Jesse resided, part of his purchase from his wife's father, Henry Rector's heirs. Thomas Glasscock married two Rector women. His first wife, Catharine, was John Rector's daughter. His second

wife was Agatha Rector, a granddaughter of Henry Rector Sr., John' brother. John Glasscock, another purchaser of rector land in 1773, left a bequest to his daughter Mary Rector, in a

will probated in 1784. Another daughter, Margaret Hardwick purchased 244 acres from Thomas and Agatha Rector Glasscock in 1771.  John Glasscock bought 139 acres in March 1773 just before John Rector's death. In fact, four of the six conveyances were made in the beginning of March 1773. John Rector evidently died between march 9, the record of his last land transaction, and March 23, 1773, when his will was probated. His will reveals the disposal of more of the old Ball tract as well as some of the land he purchased from Thomas Chattin of Lancaster County. The Chattin purchase was immediately contiguous to the Ball tract. These lands went to his sons Henry, Charles, Frederick, John, and Harmon. Rectortown owed much to this Fauquier County pioneer and early land developer. John Rector took a large, undeveloped mountainous tract of land in a largely uninhabited area of northern Fauquier County and was able to watch its development. In his lifetime, he saw a 4,874-acre tract settled by his family, relatives, and other property holders. He was personally responsible for settling some 21 families in the vicinity of Rectortown - a veritable population explosion.
