I don't really that much other than here is the will of James Naughty, father of James, John, and Mary.

Will: Made 22 Aug 1761, probated 26 Jan 1762. My daughter Mary Gerrard 2 negroes and 5 pounds; granddaughters Ann Gerrard and Elizabeth Gerrard; to Martha Brown a horse and tobacco; to John Briges a horse and gun; Mary Brown; son John land and 9 negroes; grandson James Gerrard.

Here is the will of James the son (he died before his father):

Will: Made 12 April 1755, probated July 1757. Father James Naughty 2 negros for life and then to my brother John; sister Mary Gerrard and her two eldest children 3 negroes; William Gerrard and John Naughty exrs.

And the will of John Naughty:

Will: Made 24 Nov 1768, probated 29 Nov 1768. To Martha and Mary Brown 2 negroes; John Bridges son of said Martha Brown and his daughter Patty Bridges; James Thomas; Ann daughter of William Gerrard 1 negro; godson Yelverton Quisenberry 1 negro; to John son of William Berkeley 1 negro; godson William Payne; godson John son of William Bridges; godson Richard son of Nathaniel Gerrard.

Mary Naughty married William Gerrard and had four children, listed in the above wills: Ann, Elizabeth, James, and Nathaniel.

Hope that helps some. I do not know if they had connections to Augusta County.
