Re: Ann, Wife of William Gatewood (ca 1720 - aft 1780) of Virginia
I have now had an opportunity to review all of the extant records for John Boswell in Spotsylvania Co., VA. In post #497, I incorrectly stated that Ransom Boswell was the only son of John Boswell. Although Ransom Boswell does appear to have been the eldest surviving son of John Boswell, there were at least two other sons based on the will of John Boswell and later deeds involving William Gatewood and his wife Ann (widow of John Boswell).
