Lucy, I can't add any info to help clear up the confusion, but I did want to pass along a bit of information that I've just found during my search.I knew it didn't fit into the "Killion Creek puzzle" and am delighted to pass it on, as it definitely fits in your line.
This is a brief notation from the will of Rebecca Creek as shown for Greenbrier County, West Virginia.
"CREEK, REBECCA, Will, 1-1800, Dev.: John, Jos., Jacob, sons; Ann Cegor, Susannah Cegor, Mary Combs, Eliz. Nicholas, daus."
I don't know what the "Dev." stands for.Good Luck!
