Augusta County, VA Records

From Chalkley’s Augusta County Records:

  • Vol. 2 - Porter vs. Paul--O. S. 87; N. S. 29--Deed by John Paul, of Rockbridge, to William Porter and John Porter, Jr., of Rockbridge, dated 17th February, 1804. Releases all claim as legatee under will of John Porter, Sr. Bill states, few years ago, John Porter, father of orators, William and John, died, leaving widow and children, viz: orators and a daughter; wife of John Wilson, and several grandchildren, sons and daughters of daughter who had married John Paul and who died before her father.
  1.   John Paul Jr. married Agnes Nancy Porter. Marriage record shows Agnes which is gaelic.
    When translated becomes Nancy. She went by the name of Nancy. Found this notation on
    a website: The use of Agnes and Nancy interchangeably has been the cause of much confusion in the past because the Gaelic Agnes becomes Nancy when translated.
    Also, in her father's Will (John Porter of Rockbridge)she is named as daughter Nancy,
    wife of John Paul. Source: Rockbridge County Chancery Court Records
