.          Notes:  1.   Thomas Ogle's will of 1803 (Grayson Co Will Bk 1, p 21) lists dau Sarah Largen.
.                       2.   According to some sources William was supposedly a s/o Thomas and Nancy Largent, but there is no current proof of
.                             this, nor any documents with supporting circumstantial evidence.  There are some misc documents referring to Thomas
.                             Largent in SC.  On 22 Jul 1763: Charleston, SC Will Bk A-11, p 63: will of Robert Lang Jr proven, naming Thomas Lar-
.                             gent as his son-in-law.  There was a Thomas Largent in Edgefield Co, SC and another Thomas Largent in Burke Co, NC.
.                             Supposedly the Thomas Largent of Edgefield Co, SC was originally from Virginia.  I have no evidence linking the Largen
.                             and Largent families.  Supposedly Thomas was s/o Jean (John) De'L'Argent from France.
.                             (The info on Thomas Largent of the Carolinas was provided to me from Urbane Legend.)
.                       3.   Suposedly Thomas Largent was b 1728 Va, d 1802 Edgefield SC, m Nancy Lang, b ca 1730, d after 1802, d/o Robert and
.                             Millicent Lang.  Thomas and Nancy had issue: Ann, Elizabeth, Sarah, Nancy, Jane, Mary, Ruben, Thomas, William.  Son
.                             William was b after 1773, hence too old to be William Anson Largen above.

.                       4.   www.trees.ancestry.com, owner: lhenke10: claims that William Largent, b 1728 Orange Va, d 1802 Edgecombe, NC, was
.                             s/o John Largent (1690-1738) and Roselle Eviss Rachel Demoss (1698-1738), and William m Nancy Lang (1728-1802),
.                             and they were the parents of William Anson Largen (1773-1835).  This source has a picture of William Largent.  This
.                             same source claims William's son was Thomas Largent (1752-1805), who m Nancy Lang (1728-1808).
.                       5.   www.trees.ancestry.com, owner rideau2011: claims the father of Jean (John) Largent (1690-1738) was Louis L'Argent,
.                             b 1580 France.
