Am researching descendants of Edward Taylor (c1725-c1784) and his wife Lucretia who settled in Meherrin Parish of Brunswick County, VA in 1751, having moved there from Amelia (now Nottaway) County, VA in 1751. Edward Taylor was a son of Robert Taylor (c1688-c1758).

Edward and Lucretia Taylor had at least three sons---John Taylor, Jesse Taylor, and Lewis Ball Taylor---and possibly a son Robert Taylor and a daughter Henrietta Taylor, wife of Benjamin Pearson, as well as other probable children.

Edward Taylor reportedly executed a last will in Brunswick County, VA in 1784. Does anyone have access to the contents of his will? Any info on Edward Taylor and his gamily and descendants of Brunswick County, VA is greatly appreciated.
