Does anyone have "ready access" to the referenced wills (I know that there is a published book on wills in Lancaster that covers the stated time frame...and it is apparently offered for sale at the Mary Ball Washington Museum)? I am trying to determine if John M. Smith and/or his wife Sarah (Waller) Smith left a will in Lancaster in the early-1800s, and if so, what the "particulars" therein are.
John M. Smith apparently lived in Mathews Co., VA in 1799-1800, but he witnessed the will of Joseph Chinn in Lancaster in 1799, and he ran for the House of Delegates in Lancaster in 1806 (as did his apparent son-in-law, James C. Chowning, whose second of three apparent wives was Clementis Smith). John M. Smith was then on the 1810 Lancaster census. It appears that he and his wife Sarah (Waller) Smith were both dead before 1820. Any/all help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
