  • Notes 
    • Owned 500,000 acres of land in Virginia.
    • Benjamin Borden, Jr., resided after his marriage at Fairfield, north of Lexington, Virginia. He was a justice, and captain of Augusta County militia. [3]
    • Benjamin Borden himself was well known all over the Dominion, not so much for his land, but for the big ears. 'Big eared Borden' he was called.
      Papa telling this said he called them 'Harvey Ears' because so many of the Harveys inherited them, a merry twinkle showing in his sharp eyes when he brushed his ears back and forth with both his hands. [4]
