    The State of Virginia assessor on July 4, 1787, recorded that William Boggs, Sr. owned 4 horses and 9 cattle. Four years later, at the time of his death, an appraisal, April 16, 1791, showed that the estate had grown to include a mare, black horse, a wagon and wagon gear, sheep and lambs, plow and harrow, cattle, pots, pewter plates, sundry kitchen furniture, and bushels of wheat. The real and personal property was willed to one of his sons, William Boggs (referred to as Jr.), 20 pounds to his son John contingent upon William Jr., selling the land, and to his three daughters, Elizabeth, Mary, and Janreth, the “. . . sum of five pounds each when my son William shall chuse to dispose of the Plantation . . . .”

    William Boggs, Jr., remained at the farm until his death in 1836. A June 12, 1837, inventory valued the personal property at $606.00, and listed items from farm animals - mare, bay horse, stallion horse, five milk cattle to farm equipment - axe, manure fork, shovel, hoes to household items - Windsor chairs, china, carpets, forks, etc.

    William Jr.’s will divided the land among his wife, Sarah (one third), his two daughters, Elizabeth and Jane (one third each), and 20 dollars to his son John. Sarah Boggs had died in 1832, so her one-third share was divided equally between Elizabeth and Jane, as provided in William Jr.’s will. However, Elizabeth died in December 1837 without a will so that her share of the property was divided between Jane and her brother John. An agreement between Jane and John Boggs in 1838 provided for John to retain 243 acres and to relinquish all rights to the remaining 306 acres. In 1846, John sold his 243 acre tract for $2,000.00 to Thomas C. Harper, who had married Jane Boggs in 1839.
