I do not know if I am related to these people, but they lived in Perquimans Co., as did some of my ancestors. in an "Abstract of Wills, 1690-1760" is the following:
"Monticue, Thomas, Perquimans County - June 5, 1750. October Court, 1750. Devisees and legatees: Francis Nixon (all lands and houses) Zachariah Nixon, Henry Pehlps (one negro man), Samuel Newby and John Nixon (ten pounds in good 'merchantable barrel port'), Joseph Ratliff, Zachariah Nixon, Jr., and Mehetable Nixon. Wife and Executris: Elizabeth. Executor: Zachariah Nixon. Witnesses: Josah Bundy, Abraham Hendrixon, Joseph Ratliff. Clerk of the Court: Edmund Hatch."
"Mounteague, Elizabeth, Perquimans County - September 10, 1756. July Court, 1757. Legatees; Josiah Raper, Miriam Overman, Naomy Newby, Hannah Newby, Joseph Robinson, Samuel Newby, Thomas Nicholson, William Haskit, Christopher and Joseph Nicholson. Witnesses: Thomas, Christopher and Joseph Nicholson. Witnesses: John Overman, Sarah Barrow, John Taylor. Clerk of the Court: Miles Harvey."
I might be a descendant of Josiah Raper, and wondered if he were a relation of this woman, but another researcher said there is a note in the (original?) will that her money was to go to the Quaker Meeting.
