re harris/ hudson/ wilborn families
Posted by: belva cauthen (ID *****8288) Date: May 12, 2007 at 12:47:53

in 1757, my william harris, sr/ frances goode and john camp were the executors of the estate of john wilborn in lunenburg co, va. william harris, who i believe was william harris/ judith hudson, and pinkethman hawkins gave security and had his will filed and witnesses were william harris; richard hudson; and hugh mackiney.

in 1758, john wilborn's estate was appraised by john camp; john jefferies; and richard swepson.

in 1762, the estate of john wilborn was brought to court by my william harris, sr/ frances goode and the estate paid out to:

john cox; hampton wade; roger atkinson; jacob royster; pinkethman hawkins; clement reade; gray briggs; william newsum; william harris; john ragsdale; mackerness goode, jr for resurveying john wilborn's land; david garland.

land of john wilborn was sold to william newsum on march 3, 1762 and witnesses were richard witton and mackerness goode.

this deed re john wilborn to william newsum is in kathryn wiggins' harris papers: lunenburg co, va but i cannot find this deed in the lunenburg co, va deed books i have. so where was this deed transacted?

i do have that, per lunenburg co, va deed book 6, page 387, in 1761, my william harris, sr/ frances goode, executor of john wilborn, deceased, agreed to sell to stephen willis, as per the order of john wilborn, 50 acres on both sides of woodpecker creek. selling price not given and no witnesses.

then, per mecklenburg co, va deed book 1, page 475, in 1766, stephen willis was in halifax co, nc and sold these 50 acres on both sides of woodpecker creek to charles burton in mecklenburg co, va and witnesses were thomas wilborn; william hunt, jr; john lucas; hutchins burton; and henry hastin.

john wilborn's son, thomas wilborn, continued to live in this middle bluestone creek/ woodpecker creek area near william harris/ judith hudson and other of these same individuals and families there.

i continue to be interested in john wilborn, wife, judith, and their son, thomas wilborn, per my trying to confirm that my william harris, sr/ frances goode was the son, william, of william and judith hudson harris.

i would appreciate hearing from others interested in the wilborns of lunenburg/ mecklenburg co, va and other of these also associated with them, per john wilborn's will and estate record.
