Records of David Greenlee in Augusta County, VA

From Chalkley’s Augusta County Records:

  • Vol. 1 - White vs. Moore--O. S. 168; N. S. 59--Bill, June, 1808. Complainants are, viz: John, Nathaniel, James, William White, Margaret (White), wife of James McFarland, Rebecca (White), wife of William McFarland, Mary (White), wife of Robert Snodgrass, David Greenlee and his children (infants), heir of their mother Jane, who was Jane White, all being heirs and legal representatives of John White, who was only heir-at-law and legal representative of Thomas Boyd, who was son of Andrew Boyd, who died many years ago, leaving a tract in Augusta County, 240 acres. Andrew died testate in Augusta, devising to his wife and sons, Thomas and John. Andrew's widow died intestate and her part descended to Thomas, the eldest son. After Andrew's death, a patent issued in Andrew's name for an entry of his for 115 acres, but some one struck out Andrew and inserted John. John died testate, without issue, devising his lands to his wife, Elizabeth, for her life, with reversion to her son, John Varnum. Then Thomas Boyd died intestate, leaving complainants his heirs. But Elizabeth Boyd and William Moore, who bought claim of Varnum, set up an adverse claim. Answer says Andrew Boyd died 1750. A patent for the 115 acres issued in 1759 in name of John, when he was not more than 12 or 15 years old. Andrew Boyd's will dated 26th February, 1749, proved in Augusta 22d May, 1750, to cousin, John White, if he came here to live. Wife, Rebecca.
