Oath by Richard Yarbrough, sworn to in Nansemond County, Virginia, states that the reason that appraisers were not prerasent at the sale [of his father's estate, of which he was co-executor] was because of his remote situation and apprehensions that the estate might be wasted by an imprudent brother who had been in possession of it and who had wasted a considerable part of it; says the negroes fled to him (Richard Yarbrough) in Petersburg to prevent James S. Yarbrough conveying them to Mississippi the place that he was then destined for . . . reason he is tardy filing estate was that he had settled all with parties interested under his father's will except a young brother [presumably either Oswald or Joseph] who also went out of this county but he having safely returned, Richard fedlt it right to transmit papers to Prince Edward Court to be recorded.
