There has been some discussion regarding whether Patrick Muckleroy [spelled Muckleroy]was the father of John who married Frances. This is the only Patrick Mackelroy or any other spelling that I have seen in all the years that I have researched the family. My opinion is that he is not John's father, but of course a lot of things are possible although I have never seen a clue much less any proof. I'd love to hear if any others have more information.

WESTMORELAND CO., VA - ORDER BOOK - 1690 - 1698 (Tennessee Gen. Society book)
Part I, 1690-1 - 1692, Abstracted and Compiled by John Frederick Dorman in 1962, Washington, D.C., 2311 Connecticut Ave., N.W.
County formed 1653: was the 2nd county (after its parent Northumberland) to be created in the Northern Neck of Virginia. Many of the early records are now missing, and some of those which remain are transcripts made in 1801 and 1802 which omit numerous items and contain errors.
The ORDER BOOK is an original volume.
Covering approximately the same period as this Order Book is DEEDS & WILLS, Nov. 2, 1691-1699, a transcript of 1801 which actually contains but 25 pages of records in 1691 and none thereafter until 1695. Thus the great majority of wills and deeds mentioned in these court orders are no longer reserved and it is in these orders alone that reference to them can be found.
While the listing of each suit brought before the court undoubtedly makes for repetition of information about the more important residents of the county, it also makes certain that those who had not acquired large landed estates and the social position which such holdings help to establish are not overlooked. The compiler's own Westmoreland county ancestors, belonging to the smaller farmer class appear rarely in the court records and each reference to them is therefore the more valuable.
During the period of this volume James WESTCOMB was Clerk of the Court and signed the proceedings.
