It seems certain that Francis was named after the revolutionary war hero, Francis Marion, the Swamp Fox and this is not something I believe a Virginia would do. Virginias named their children after their number one war hero, George Washington so the fact that Benjamin named his son after a a war hero from South Carolina further convinces me that Benjamin born in 1761 in King and Queen Co VA spent most of his life in the Carolinas and not Virgnia.
