In Reply to: FLOURNOY & George WASHINGTON: Genealogical Gossip by Nora Tocus of 829

The information that I found shows it was Elizabeth Buckner, who married first Orlando Jones, no children; married second James Williams and had Elizabeth Williams who married Jean Jacques (John James) Flournoy. So it was Elizabeth William's mother, not she who married Orlando Jones.

James Williams, born in the Principality of Wales, England, married Elizabeth Buckner of Virginia, born 25 December 1695, widow of Orlando Jones without children per The Flournoy Family compiled by Flournoy Rivers, Esq., Pulaski, Tennessee, published in Genealogies of Virginia Families from Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Volume III, page 10

Jean Jacques (John James) Flournoy, son of Jacques Flournoy and Julia Eyraud, born 17 November 1686, died 23 March 1740 of malignant fever, prevalent in the country; married in Virginia, 23 June 1720, to Elizabeth Williams, daughter of James Williams born in the Principality of Wales, England and of Elizabeth Buckner, his wife, of Virginia; born 25 December 1695; Elizabeth Buckner had been married formerly to Orlando Jones without children; she died one or two days after husband and they were buried at the same time, according to her desire expressed after the death of her husband. She wishing that his interment might be postponed as she had a premonition that she would soon him, although she was at the time entirely well. per The Flournoy Family compiled by Flournoy Rivers, Esq., Pulaski, Tennessee, published in Genealogies of Virginia Families from Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Volume III, page 11. Footnote shows: Flournoy vs. Martin: At a court held at Goochland Court House the third Tuesday in July, 18th, 1732, in an "action of debt between John James Flournoy and Elizabeth, his wife, ex'x &c. of the defendant for "seven hundred and thirty pounds of sweet-scented tobacco in cash convenient and eight-eight pounds of tobacco and fifteen shillings, curr't money. Whereupon it is considered by the court that the pl"t"s do recover against the def't the said sums, together with the Costs of this Suit and a Lawyer's ffee."

A search has been made for the will books of Henrico County, Virginia, covering the year of Jean Jacques Flournoy's death, but neither the original will nor the probated copy of it could be found. The will books from 1737 to 1745 are lost. The following entry however, appears from the Order Book of that period, page 102, April Court 1740: "William Gay and John Nash present the last will and testament of John James Flournoy, deceased, upon oath, and prove the same by the oath of John Price and John Hancock, two of the witnesses theretowhich as ordered to be recorded, and certificate is granted the said Executors for obtaining a probate thereon in due form." At the May Court, 1740, the will of "Mary ffloronoy dec'd" was probated by William Gay and Jas. Nash, Executors. Page 107, same book
"Henrico County Court, July 7, 1740, and Inventory of the Estate of John James Floronoy and Mary Floronoy, deceased, is presented by John Nash and William Gay and ordered to be recorded." Page 113, same book
