Records in Augusta County, VA

From Chalkley’s Augusta County Records:

I, Thomas Lyons, of Greenville, in Augusta County, and State of Virginia, under apprehension of approaching death, do make this my last will and testament. It is my will that my brother, William Lyons, of the Town, County and State aforesaid, shall, after paying all my just debts, receive and possess all my estate, real and personal, wheresoever it may be found. Given under my hand and seal in the Chickasaw Nation this 8th day of July, 1806. (Signed) Thomas Lyons. Test: John McKee, Sarnuel Mitchell, Malcom (mark) McGhe. Proved, 19th July, 1806, before Samuel Mitchell, agent for the United States to the Chickasaw Nation in the Chickasaw Agency, by John McGee and Malcom McGee. Recorded, 19th July, 1806, in the book of the Chickasaw Agency. A true copy of Thomas Lyons's will, 16th August 1806. Test: Jefferson L. Edmonds, M. T. Stribling (Stirhling). To the Worshipful Court of Augusta, Greeting: We, the subscribers hereof, having taken the oath of fidelity to this State, looked upon the aforesaid oath to be sufficient unless we had been found faulty in giving in of our property, which we never kept back, nor have we refused to pay our public debts, but are willing to act as true sustainers of this State, for us to appear at Court looks like murder, to leave out families to the ravages of a savage enemy and hope you will in your wisdom consider us, &c., &c.
(Signed) Charles Fornalson, Jonathan Boffanton.
