States: Virginia: Buckingham
This is off the topic of Sarah WOOTEN...but I have run across your Richard TAYLOR. He was a neighbor of my William PHELPS in the Wreck Island area around 1768. I'm posting an entry in the "Buckingham Co., Va. Surveyor's Plat Book 1762-1858" by Eric G. Grundset, 2nd ed., 1996, Clearfield, Baltimore. "My" William PHELPS sued Richard TAYLOR, Jeremiah WHITNEY, & Thomas MATHEWS in 1770 over this land.
This area might have been a mining area. Also, I'm curious as to your PHELPS line. Do you come from the Albermarle Co., (Buckingham Co.) VA PHELPSes? If you have knowlegde of this Wreck Island area in that time period, I'd love to learn about that. I hope this will be some help.
Buckingham Co., VA. - Jeremiah WHITNEY, Gentleman, Richard TAYLOR, Thomas MATHEWS; June 22, 1768; 379 acres; ridges and heads of branches between Fluvanna River and Wreck Island Creek; James CHRISTIAN, new lines, William PHELPS, new lines, W.C. and WHITNEY NEIGHBORS; Coleman's Road shown dividing survey; division within survey to William PHELPS (mulatto) by order Governor and Council and a certificate granted to ???, Gentleman.
