Sharon and other Surry County members -- I am interested in anyone with information about the Joseph Holliman who had a daughter Lucy, named in his will -- in 1784. I assume this would be Joseph Holliman Sr. I have a working hypothesis that Lucy may have married my ancestor, David Whitmore -- their son is listed in Surry County marriage records as Holleman Whitmore who married Eleanor Frances Warren in Surry County in 1823.

I have been seeking any records of Whitmore in Surry County; but without much success. There is a Thomas Whitmore who owned land there in 1745-1770; and a Colin Whitmore who died in 1825 (I have not yet accessed his will -- where could I find an accessible copy?
We have a Bible record that says David Whitmore's wife was Lucy (no last name). Her son, Holleman Whitmore was born in 1799.
Thanks in advance for any information/assistance! Maggie Hodge
