Information on John Briscoe

From "Pioneers of Old Frederick County, Virginia", by Cecil O'Dell, pg. 150:


Briscoe's will was written on 6 January 1785, leaving his wife Ann (first wife Elizabeth died after 1760) the 150 acres "where he lives". A minor son, Hezekiah (possibly the son of Ann) would receive 150 acres after Elizabeth's demise. He left 400 acres on Salt River being part of 1,000 acres called "Grapeville" to daughter Sarah Slaughter. "All lands in Kentucky to son Parmenus Briscoe, son John Briscoe, Elizabeth Baker and Fraicei Davis, son Hezekiah Briscoe." And to friends Robert Briscoe (son of Philip) and James Summerel, 600 acres for their lifetime and then it reverts to son Hezekiah. [Berkeley County West Virginia Will Book 2, pg. 13].
