  • Vol. 1 - William Morris of Kanawha vs. John Dickenson's heirs--O. S. 12; N. S. 4--Bill filed 18th November, 1802. About year ____, John Dickenson being owner of lands in Kenawha and desiring to locate his family thereon and to introduce the preaching of the Gospel, and William, also so desirous, it was agreed between them that they would give each 50 acres to a certain Nathaniel Shrewsberry, a preacher of the Baptist denomination, who was then inclined to remove to the Kenawha County. If Shrewsberry did come or died on the way, the land was to be conveyed to his children; if neither happened, then conveyance was to be to the first Baptist preacher who came. Shrewsberry chose 100 acres of Dickenson's land. But Shrewsberry did not come, and then Morris persuaded James Johnston, a Baptist preacher, to remove from Rockingham County to Kenawha. Dickinson refused to convey to Johnston, but either by deed or will, (he is dead), conveyed same to Saml. & John Shrewsberry, who intermarried with two of the daughters of Dickinson.
