CIRCUIT COURT RECORDS, SECTION "I."
Sites vs. Rader--O. S. 193; N. S. 68--Bill, 1811. Orator Christian Sites in 1803 bought from
John Gum a tract in Rockingham. There is an interlock of 23 1/2 acres claimed by Michael
Lincoln under Jost Hite and 53 acres formerly owned by Philip Rymel, who held under Hite.
Gum claimed under a patent to Timothy Coe in 1756, who sold to John's father Jacob Gum.
Timothy died and his interest was supposed to be vested in his son and heir-at-law Timothy
Coe. John Gum had a brother Jacob. Timothy was not Timothy's eldest son and heir, but the
eldest son and heir was John Coe, who long since removed out of Virginia. The patent to
Timothy Coe was founded on a survey in 1794 for William Mark (?) for 190 acres. John Gum
has moved to Kentucky, where he died intestate, and his administrator, Sheppard Gum,
assigned the bonds to John Rader. Tuliver Whitehurst (Whitehouse) deposes in Lancaster,

Whitehurst, nephew of Gum, deposes as above. John Vance deposes as above; formerly
