New's in Rockbridge County Va

Ok, I'm at my wit's end! Is anyone out there looking for a William and/or David New in Rockbridge Co. Va? The years in question are 1796 through 1812.
I have a David New with sons Pleasant, John and William in Rockbridge from 1787 through 1795. They are on the personal tax list's for that period. By 1797 they are in Green County Ky (verified by personal and property tax lists). By 1810 David and sons are in Giles County Tennessee. Again verified by census, personal and property tax lists.
Here is my delima, A William New buys 100 acres of land in Rockbridge in 1797 from Michael Gabbert, he is listed on the property tax lists from 1797 through 1810 (tax tapes ends). In 1812 I find a David New as a neighbor on a land transaction for a Benjamin Camden. This is my delima....who the heck are these William and David New's? They are for sure not mine, who do they belong to?
We're thinking that maybe this David New that shows up as a neighbor is possibly the son of the William New of 1796 with the 100 acres of land.
Anybody have an ancestor named William or David New that is "lost" and if so..please let me know. We could find no land tax record for our David New just personal property tax records for David and son Pleasant.
Any ideas?
