Records in Virginia

From Will of William Janes:

“a tract of land lying on Straight Creek, which formerly has and does now in part belong to the heirs of George Evick Sen.”
  1.   The Okie Legacy.

    In Oren Frederic Morton's 1910(12) book on the "History of Pendleton County, West Virginia," we learn in chapter XVII, about "The Town of Franklin." In 1769 Francis and George Evick surveyed 160 acres of land on the left bank of the South Branch. This is on a portion of this tract that Franklin was built. George Evick appeared to have lived across the river at the mouth of the Evick gap. The early home of Francis was near a spring that issued from the hillside above the upper street and near the Ruddle tannery.
