I just found a Chancery Court case in York County, VA, from 1786-8. The case is between Thady KELLY and Captain Francis BRIGHT regarding the renting of a plantation called Indian Field. I only copied out a few pages to establish my ancestor William KEEN. This case has not been microfilmed yet and is in the original in the archives at the Library of Virginia (State Archives). I also copied the deposition given by William KEEN. This case included, among others, the following names:
Thady KELLY
Major James SHIELDS - James City
Captain Francis BRIGHT
William KEEN
James SOUTHALL
Will FRANCIS

Tom.
