Looking for confirmation/relationships on above named William E BECKWITH, an adult in 1828 Fairfax Co, Va who along with John H Dye, Hector Kincheloe, Lawrence Butler and Elisha Jenkins (m Pritchartt's dau) , appraised the estate of one Travis Pritchartt dead. Source: Fairfax Co Will Book N 372 transcribed by me.
Travers Pritchartt in 1808 witnessed deed from Marmaduke BECKWITH & wife Rebekka to Bernard Bryan in Alexandria Va.Bernard Bryan purchased property 400 plus acres on Johynmoore creek. (This is also where Travis Pritchartt lived at death)
William E Beckwith also witnessed division of slaves from above estate 1828 - Fairfax so he was alive at that time per following:
William E Beckwith also witnessed the following excerted: Pursuant to a decree of the county Court of Fairfax requiring it of us the the subscribers have pro ceded to make an equal division of the slaves in said decree mentioned as follows to with...... Given under our hands this 15th day of Dec 1828.Elisha JENKINSWm E BECKWITHAlex WAUGH
Court record - Oct 1800 Fairfax County where a William Beckwith needed a guardian andJohn BRONOUGHappointed.Witness John Bronough, Sampson Turley and Thomas Pollard.
Court record - July 1800 - Sybil Beckwith guardian of Jennings Beckwith- witness Sybil Beckwith (widow of Marmaduke) James Coleman - Charles Little - Richard Bland Lee - James Waugh
Is there a connection between 2 guardianships?
Marmaduke Beckwith property near Pritchartts and the rest of the names connected through marriage.A Marmaduke Beckwith on 1790 Tax list Fairfax Co, however dissappears from census by 1820.His wife is listed - Syble Beckwith- living next to Pritchartts.We have since determined the Pritchartt property to be purchased1799 from Sampson Turley and son James being 419 acres on Johnnymore Run which confirms our previous theories.
If Sybil Ellzey is widow of Marmaduke Beckwith dead by 1800, who is the Marmaduke Beckwith with wife Rebecca in 1808 with deed?Can someone put all the above Beckwiths in order?Confused. Anne
