I have posted a copy of the will of Margaret "Peggy" Marks Humphrey to my website - it is the will freeing my great grandfather Presley ROBERTS, giving him 100 dollars and a years wages,which enabled him to purchase our family land in Snickersville (now Bluemont).
I have also posted a copy of a page of the estate account - in 1866, he is paid a small legacy from her will.
In the will Margaret makes references to her brother's Mason, Abel, Watts and Samuel; her sisters Mary PEUGH, Lydia HESSER and deceased sister Elizabeth WARFORD; her nieces; Margaret CLAGETT, Margaret HESSER, Sarah Ann HESSER and Rebecca SCOTT.
Many thanks for the assistance I received from MARKS and HUMPHREY family members, and to the staff at the Balch library for making this discovery possible.
