Sarah Rollings' will in Warren County, VA, 1837

In Reply to: John Adam Rollings m. Sary Cave in MD in 1787 --> VA by Roger Robison of 165

Warren County, VA (will book A, page 11) records a will for Sarah Rollings dated February 24, 1837, and probated April 27, 1837. The executor is Abner Smith, and the witnesses are Abraham Brown -same man who was a witness to her husband's will- and Samuel McDougle. Securities were Wm. Woodward and George Jones. Finding this will fairly well cinches my earlier notion about John Adam Rollings and Sarah Cave. Details of the will reveal that she had a sister named Jane W__, wife of James Wharling? of Rockbridge County, VA. (The surname may be Whaling or some other variation of the spelling. I have been unable to find them on either the 1830 or 1840 census rolls.) She left half of her estate to her other "relatives": John, Samuel, and Sarah Cave. I suspect these to be the children cited in the will of Thomas Cave in Fauquier County, VA, in1797: Rhoda, John, Sarah, and Samuel. Rhoda would be the Rhoda Watkins of Warren County, VA. Sarah Cave Rollings and Jane Cave Wharling might be the sisters of Thomas Cave, or possibly his aunts. The relationship is not certain. If you have information about any of these individuals, please contact me.
