Early Land Acquisition in Augusta County, VA

Acquisition of Land from Chalkley's:

[Note: Joseph Alexander was the father-in law of Alexander Montgomery, and Oliver Alexander who witnessed the deed was the brother-in-law of Alexander Montgomery.]

Disposition of Land from Chalkley's:

  • Page 259.--17th March, 1778. Alexander Montgomery and Sarah and Robert Thompson and Agness, all of Augusta County, to Cutlip Black, late of same place, in Borden's tract on head of James River. Delivered to Francis Hull, 21st May, 1781.

[Note: why Robert Thompson and his wife Agness are involved in this transaction is intriguing. Was Robert Thompson's wife Agness a daughter of Joseph Alexander? needs research.]
