Information on James Handley

From "The Handley Family", by Mary Mortimeyer and Richard Hopkins:

On April 11, 1770, John Handley appeared at Fincastle, the county seat of Botetourt County, to be security for his son, James Handley. James was being sued by William Crawford for 16 pounds 10 pence. Crawford was awarded that amount plus interest from October 1, 1768. Unimproved land sold for about 6 pounds per hundred acres and perhaps young James was unable to meet the payment deadline which usually was one year.

11 October 1770 - James Handley appeared in Botetourt County Court and he and David Galloway told the court they would pay the debts of Dennis Driskell, Robert Galloway and John Galloway or go to prison if they couldn't pay. [1]
