Early Land Acquisition in Augusta County, VA

Note: although there does not appear to be a Deed for William Buntin in Chalkley's transcriptions, it appears, based upon other records (listed below) that he may have acquired land nearby (or likely adjoining) his brother, John Buntin. The last record in Chalkley's for William Buntin was in 1771, likely indicating that he had migrated to another area (possibly Kentucky where he died in 1803?), shortly after that date.
