Notes for Priscilla Anderson:
Priscilla Anderson married after she was 29.She was given a conditional legacy in her brother-in-law John May's 1794 will that said if she had any children she was to receive his land.She apparently did better than that before his death in 1798 and married into the Hawks family east of Blackstone. Unfortunately Peter Hawks is dead by 09/23/1813 at which time the inventory of his estate is filed in Nottoway County Will Book 3 page 213.
She resided on Birchin Creek, now part of Fort Pickett.Priscilla would have inherited the lands of brother-in-law John May from his 1794 will if she had any "legal issue". She was not married at the time.Perhaps John May left her his lands out of concern that she would become an old maid.She apparently qualified for the land and sells it in 1804.She sells off several small pieces of land between 1810 and 1828 probably those of her husband.These lands were located along the road from Black Face to White's Chapel.Blackstone was originally called Black's and White's.She is probably living with a Hawks family relation in the 1810 Census.She also sold land to William Moore and Carter R. Anderson of no established relationship. She was named in Hannah's chancery suit in 1815.
