Lew,
Any time you get a date and location of a will, or deed, or marriage bond, the best place to get it is at the courthouse at which it is located, rather than looking in a book of abstracts.
Write to the Clerk of the Court at Isle of Wight County -find address at rootsweb/usgenweb on project's state pages, or do a search through www.google.com for "isle of wight" - and ask how much they want for a photocopy of the will. It shouldn't cost too much and you will have your actual primary documentation.
Abstracts sometimes dont tell the whole picture. The will will tell you exactly what it says.
Tosca
