Thanks so much for posting this! I recognized several names of the petitioners from my research.

I'm intrigued by the names of Thomas Anderson and Joseph Anderson.... For years I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to figure out the parents of my ggggg-grandfather Samuel W. Anderson--born abt. 1745, died 1819 in Albemarle Co. (Some genealogies have incorrectly placed him as the son of David Anderson and Elizabeth Mills Anderson who also had a son named Samuel.)

"My" Samuel was married to Jane Lyon, daughter of John Lyon, and lived near Bezaleel Maxwell (one of the other signers).

When time permits, I'll try to find what I can on the Thomas and Joseph Anderson mentioned in this document--sure hope I can eventually move this line backwards!

Again, thanks for posting--
