From the will of John James Dupuy, Cumberland County VA., Will Book II, p. 169, 1775

"I lend to my daughter Martha Foster during her life one hundred and ninety acres of land on the head of Flat creek in Amelia County being a moiety of a tract of three hundred and eighty acres patented in my own name the other half of which I have devised to my grandson Benjamin Hatcher and at the death of my said daughter, I give and devise the said one hundred and ninety acres of land to my grandson George Foster and his heirs forever."

"I give and devise to my granddaughter Susanna Foster thirty pounds current money to be paid to her when she shall attain to the age of eighteen years or married, to be paid out of my estate by my executors to her and her heirs forever.
Mentions granddaughter Mary Foster, under age 18.

I haven't found anything that names Martha's husband's first name.
Hope this helps.
Peggy
