In Albemarle County Order Book 1793-1795, page 244, 13 Nov 1794, is the following surprise entry! This day, Mary Seamonds, now the wife of Ephraim Seamonds and formerly the wife of John Pugh deceased, personally appears in Court and makes oath that John Pugh and William Pugh are the children of John Pugh deceased, who formerly resided in the County of Richmond in this state and that they are the only surviving children of the said John Pugh deceased. Ephraim Seamonds being also sworn saith he has been acquainted with the said John and William Pugh from the time of their birth to the present time, that they were always considered as the children of the said John Pugh deceased, and that he verily believes them to be so.
Now, what was Mary's maiden name? Does anyone know?
