In going over notes made by and shared by my cousin Rita Souther, I found this abstract [below] of the John Wayland will.

Can anyone identify the Wayland women who married the men listed below as John Wayland's heirs?

Notes for CATHERINE BROYLES: From "Thomas Wieland (Wayland) and related lines": (

Catherine BROYLES [Parents] 1 was born about 1730 in , , Virginia. She died on 22 Jun 1831 in , Madison Co., Virginia. Catherine married John WAYLAND about 1751 in , Culpeper Co., Virginia.

See "The Broyles Family", by Dr. Arthur Leslie Keith. This is a 800 page unpublished manuscript, the original of which is in the Newberry Library, 90 Walter St., Chicago, IL. Dr. Keith died suddenly in 1942 at the age of 68 before he could publish his work.

In 1814, Catherine Wayland is described as holding 212 acres four miles est of the Madison Court House - evidently part of the Thomas Wayland patent.

In 1751, Catherine Wayland was the sponsor for a child of Nicholas Crigler. John Wayland or Catherine Wayland was sponsor for children of Nicholas Broil from 1757 to 1775. Catherine Wayland appears frequently on the Hebron Church communion rolls from 1775 to 1811. John Wayland's names appears with her name on these rolls occasionally.
