Records of David Price in Augusta County, VA

From Chalkley’s Augusta County Records:


  • Vol. 2 - Taylor vs. Harman--O. S. 142; N. S. 49--Bill, 23d July, 1807. Orator, Adam Taylor. Many years ago George Hoopaugh made a survey for 300 acres under Loyal Company on Sinking Creek of New River in Giles County, which he sold to George Taylor, father of orator, who devised it to orator. But by some accident the plat and certificate were made out in the name of Henry Harman, to whom the grant issued. Henry Harman answers that about 1751 or 1752 he and his uncle, Valentine Harman, were on a hunting expedition when they camped on the land in question and Valentine made what was called an improvement by killing trees, &c.; and in 1754 Valentine procured a survey under the Loyal Company, in which year he made a contract with George Hubough, who was poor and lived on Valentine's charity, that George should go and live on the place as tenant. In 1756 or 57 Valentine was killed by the Indians and his property decended to Adam Harman, Henry's oldest brother, and in 178_ orator purchased Adam's right. Mathias Harman deposes, 27th February, 1810, that upwards of 50 years ago during Valentine's life, Valentine settled Hoopaugh on the land. Valentine was killed by the Indians on New River and at the same time deponent's brother, Daniel, and Andrew Moser were taken prisoner. Daniel made his escape, but Andrew was held prisoner. Adam Harman was eldest brother of Mathias. Jeremiah Pate, Sr., deposes 15th February, 1810, that in year ____ he was traveling down Sinking Creek in company with old Adam Harman and his son Adam, when old Adam pointed out a marked tree and said it was the land of "Uncle Valentine Harman" (Valentine being his brother, but generally called him uncle when talking of him with his sons). No one but George Hoopaugh lived on the Creek. Young Adam Harman became Valentine's heir because his brother Jacob's son, Jacob Harman, was "Rakish" inclined and old Valentine never liked him. Christina Pate deposes as above: Mary was widow of Valentine. Adam Harman proved himself Valentine's heir by a will in Carolina. Daniel Harman deposes 30th June, 1808, that before Braddock's defeat he remembered thathis uncle Valentine employed George Hupaugh as tenant. In 1757 Valentine was killed by Indians in deponents' presence less than a foot from him and deponent was taken prisoner. David Price deposes 17th February, 1810: Valentine was killed by Indians in 1755 or 56, leaving no children. Jacob Taylor deposes ditto: Son of George Taylor. John Looney deposes 25th January, 1810: George Hoopack was a Dunker and the first settler on the land. David Price, Sr., deposes ditto: In 1754 Hoopaugh lived on the land. In 1775 he moved off on account of Indians, but came back when he sold to George Taylor, Sr. Wm. McAfee settled the same land in 1774 and paid the fees to Dr. Walker. Deponent was son of Michael Price.
