Early Land Acquisition in Augusta County, VA

Acquisition of Land in Augusta County, VA:

John Rogers acquired land "on Crooked Run on the South River" prior to Nov. 1746, as listed in the Chalkley's records below. Since the records of his grant or acquisition does not seem to be in the Augusta County, VA records, it is most likely in the Orange County (the predecessor County of Augusta), Virginia records, where deeds were recorded before December 1745.
