Charlotte Co - HINES, OLIVER, RAKESTRAW - 1800
Posted by: Kenneth Jenkins (ID *****2313) Date: November 06, 2008 at 08:59:16
  of 653

Albermarle County, Virginia (formed 1744 from Goochland and Louisa. County)
Seat: Charlottesville .
1796 July 13 Thos. HINES to Thomas OLIVER, his guardian. Cash pd. Mary RAKESTRAW 0.9.3 at a court held for Charlotte County, Virginia the 7th day of Apr. 1800 the acc't vs the estate of Thomas HINES, orphan of Caleb HINES, dec'd

Virginia Tax List
Oliver, Thomas Charlotte 1790 PersonalB 10
Oliver, Thomas Charlotte 1800 PersonalB 15

Thomas OLIVER possibilities may be this family:
William OLIVER
b. about 1690 Virginia
d. 1771 (Caroline County) Virginia
Ursilla (-------) THOMAS
b. about 1707 Virginia
d. not given
William OLIVER b. no date born in Virginia
Thomas OLIVER b. about 1732 Virginia
Benjamin OLIVER b. no date born in Virginia

No info on the children - this Thomas OLIVER b. about 1732 - would be about age 64 at the time of the guardianship

Unfortunately, there is no info past that point
Strangely enough, there are many, many "Mary RAKESTRAW" listed (WorldConnect site) research shows she was most probably Mary (WHITE) GRIGGS-RAKESTRAW, apparently widowed at the time of the 1880 suit against the estate of Thomas HINES, orphan of Caleb HINES. Thomas HINES was about age 25 in 1800. There is a connection to the HARVEY and the OLIVER families. But because of a relatively small population and travel limitations, the marriage pool in colonial Virginia was limited. So the connections may or may not be significant.

The question remains: why was it necessary to sue the estate of Caleb HINES?

Does anyone have any information on Thomas OLIVER or Thomas HINES (son of Caleb HINES)?

I am a HINES researcher.
