Will Book O. Page 206
Halifax County in the province of Virginia, Mar. the 11th, 1765, in the name of God, the last will of John Justice, Senior being in health and sound memory, thanks be to God, Almighty, and calling to rememberance the uncertain state of this transitory life and that all flesh must yield to death, I do declare this to be my last will and testament in manner and form, revoking and admitting by these presents all and every presents all and every testament and testaments, will and wills here to before by me made and declared other by word or by writing and this is to be taking by these presents that I, John Justice, Senior, that I give and bequeath unto my beloved wife, Mary, all my goods and chattels and all moveables that I am in possession of on Harpin Creek, as long as she remains my widow, likewise unto my son Ezra, 300 acres of land and a mill on it which is now the home place, likewise unto my son William Justice 100 acres of land, lying on Pigg River likewise unto my son Justice, 5 shillings, Simeon Justice, 5 shillings and unto my son Thomas Justice, 5 shillings and unto my daughter Mary, the wife of George Green, 5 shillings, likewise to my daughter Alice, wife of Thomas Watson, 5 shillings.

Other names that married into the Justice family are-
Fframe-Hogue-Inman-Dyer (Dyar)-Shiplin-Thomas-Morrison-Edwards-Clark-Maxwell-Sorrells-Penley-Kirkpatrick-Rathbone-Davis-Largent-Westmoreland-Rogers-Hayes-Lowe-Bumgarner-Foster-Hunter-Young-Carver-Rhinehart-Mears-Reeves-Enright-Kerley-Trull-Spitzer-Toney-Saiz-Marks, just to name a few.

It is very confusing at this point. Some sources list this John Justice as the son of Justinian and others list him as the son of Justinian's brother, John? The source here lists him as the son of John.

"After selling his father's estate and moving westward to Augusta Co., VA. he, like others, had to eventually move to another area; this was due to the French and Indian War raging in the area around Staunton in Augusta Co. He later moved to Halifax Co., VA. but before the move, built a water grist mill in Augusta, for a William Wilson; this on August 25, 1751. Later the authorities recorded it "as not properly built". With corrections made, he was paid, and then we believe purchased for himself 224 acres on Newfoundland Creek -- this purchase of May 20, 1752 between John McCreery and wife Agness (see Lyman Chalkley's Records of Augusta Co., VA. 1745-1800, v. 3, pg. 302). All was not smooth sailing even then, as the Indians were too hostile, so on May 17, 1754, just two years afer purchasing the land, he sold to Michael Harper (Chalkley's v.3, page. 326). With this sale money he financed his next move, and we now find him, through deeds, in Halifax Co., VA.

We know that John and Mary (Hogue) Justice sold 400 Acres of land on Miry Creek and 400 additional Acres, on December 17, 1756, to a George Evins.
