Christian Lady & family

Looking for info on Christian Lady & family.

1. I was told Christian Lady was born in 1760 in Virginia to Peter & Ann Lady. However, with the Land Deed i just got from Berkley Co., VA, Deed Index (17 May 1791 - Stephen Rawlings to Christian lady - Book 9, P.493)Deed actually dated 12 June 1769 Frederick County, VA - and proved 17 May 1791 in the Berkeley Co., VA Court, he couldn't of been born in 1760 because that would of made him only 9 years old at the time. Is there a Birth Certificate for him which would show his correct date of birth? I would guess probably about 1750 instead of 1760. Are Peter & Ann Lady definitely his Parents? Peter & Ann Lady it looks like moved from Pennsylvania to Virginia probably about 1740-1750.

2. Christian Lady lived in Frederick Co., Virginia which became Berkley Co., Virginia in Feb 1772. I think he had 5 children: Jacob, Christian, Henry, David & Elizabeth Lady who married a Weir. Christian Lady's Will (Filed 16 Aug 1803 and Probated 24 Oct 1803), so Christian probably died Aug 1803. The Will only mentions 3 sons: Christian, Henry & David. All the children were born between 1780-1790 in Virginia, probably in Berkley Co. It looks like Christian Lady lived all his life in Berkley Co. once Frederick Co. became Berkley Co. Are there any Birth/Death Certificates for any of them? I would guess that since Jacob wasn't mentioned in the Will, that he probably died sometime before Aug 1803.

3. Christian Lady was married to a unknown wife. It appears from his Will that Christian's wife left him sometime after the children were born & before the writing of his Will in Aug 1803. Is there a Marriage Bond/Certificate that shows who Christian Lady was married to? I would guess that they probably married about 1780 since i show the first son Jacob being born 1783. Maybe the children's Birth Certificates will show it. Did they get Divorced? Are there any Divorce papers?

Well that is everything that i know or think i know concerning Christian Lady & family. If anyone can find out anything to help me fill in some of the blanks i would greatly appreciate it.
