I have a book, "VA Co. Records, Vol. 1: Spotsylvania Co. 1721-1800", W.A.Crozier. In Index are: GRAYSON, Alice; Ambrose; Ambrose, Jr.; Barbara; Benjamin; Elizabeth; Hoke; John; John, Jr.; Mary; Susannah; Thomas; Willam.
Wm. GRAYSON had a couple of mortgages and witnessed a few deeds, etc., but here's an interesting one:
P. 122: "Deed Book B, 1729-1734. June 6, 1732. Francis THORNTON and Francis THORNTON, Jr. Executors of the last will and testament of James HORSNALE, decd. [see Will Book A] and of St. Mary's Par., Caroline Co., to William GRAYSON of St. Bee's Par., Cumberland Co., in Great Britain. L50 ster.,300 a. in St. Geo, Par., Spts. Co., purchased by James HORSNALE of Augustine SMITH.Witesses: John GRAME, John BLAND, James x ROY. June 6,1732."
Also found wills of Ambrose(1742) and Ambrose, Jr.,(1754) Stephen SHARPE(1735), and much more of interest.It's great fun to cross-check all the names.The gentleman from the museum was right ... this family had close ties to most of the historic names.Is this news to anyone else ... or just to me?!!
