A really good one to get an eye on is the land deed of sale in Bedford County as follows:
1792-June 25, John Grant and wife Lydia (signed Violet on the bottom of deed) along with Wayman and Mary (Watts) Sinclair sold 192 acres to George Simmons in Bedford County, Va. The land was on the north branch of the north fork of Enoch's Creek - corner of Simmons and Thomas Wright also adj. to Wm. Scott, then along the south fork of Enock's Creek, then by where the branch empties into Ed (Edward) Watt's pond, then with Newlon's line. (John Newlon)
<Why did they sell this land with John Grant and Lydia, unless Lydia was a Watts and sister to Mary and both daughters of Edward & Eliz. Watts.>
What is this connection?
I do not have a copy of the original handwritten deed. It would be good to see how her name (Lydia) and (Violet) was written. If she is actually Violetta Chambers the daughter of William and Ann Booth Chambers, the Lydia/Violet sort of makes sense.
Thank you very much for your work and help on this.
