I am interested in getting a copy of the will of John Snyder from "Virginia Wills Before 1799." I only found the text online, and I prefer an original copy or scan. The will was written in Amherst County, Virginia, on 1 Dec 1777. It names his wife Elizabeth; his som John; his daughters Elizabeth, Mary Aaron, Rachel Brown, and Anna Jones; and his son-in-law George Cockburn.
Second, I am seeking a marriage record for John Snyder's daughter, Elizabeth Snyder, and George Cockburn. I have that they were married on 1 Mar 1773, and this was most likely in Amherst County, Virginia. They might be mentioned in the Amherst County Marriage Index.
I would also like a copy of a land deed from John Snyder to his son-in-law George Cockburn in 1773 in Amherst County, Virginia. I have been told there is mention of the deed in a book of Abstracts of Amherst County Land Deeds. I would like a copy of the abstract or the actual deed.
If anyone has access to these sources or any has any information about these people, please let me know. Thank you.
