Early Land Acquisition in Augusta County, VA

Acquisition of Land from "Chalkley's":

  • John Jameson acquired 280 acres in the Cowpasture area of Augusta County, near Jackson's River, 26 Sept. 1760. (Source: From "A Centennial History of Alleghany County, Virginia", By Oren F. Morton, B., Lit. Dayton, Virginia, J. K. Reubush Company 1923, Transcribed by Nancy Piper for Genealogy Trails) Note: it appears that John Jameson's son John may have ended up on this land, since he died later in Rockbridge County, VA, where most of the Cowpasture was located.

Disposition of Land from "Chalkley's":

  • Page 286.—15th October, 1765. John Jameson and Mary ( ), late of the County of Augusta, to Archibald Armstrong, £50, 280 acres on Jackson's River; corner land in possession of James Ewing patented to John Jamison, 26th September. 1760. Teste: Charles Teas, David Bell, John Ward.
