Lieutenant William Harris' Grandchildren
Find A Grave Memorial# 29049783

About 1680, Major Thomas Owsley married Ann Harris, apparently the only child of Lieutenant William Harris, a former British Army officer whose presence is attested to in Stafford County in the 1660s, and in whose will of 1698 devised all of his land to his Owsley grandchildren. Ann survived her husband by many years. On 13 March 1700/1, she transacted two sales of land, one, a parcel on the South side of Acquia Creek being sold to Daniel Beach for 3000 pounds of tobacco and the other, approximately 650 acres upon Oququon River, to Edward Barton for 4000 pounds of tobacco (Stafford Co. Record Book, 1699-1709, p. 59-60, 62-63).

An important document in establishing the offspring of Major Thomas Owsley who married Ann Harris, the daughter of Lieutenant William Harris is a deed of partition dated 29 March 1741 in the records of Prince William County. It reveals that on 24 March 1697/8 William Harris composed his will leaving all of his land in Stafford County to his "granddaughters" Jane and Anne Owsley to be equally divided between them. If they had no heirs, the land should go to Mary Owsley, and if she had no heirs it should go to the testator's grandson Thomas Owsley. The deed of partition goes on to relate that Jane married James Gregg and Anne married Isaac Kent and that their heirs in 1741 were Matthew Gregg of Stafford County and Isaac Kent of Prince William County (Prince William Co. Deeds, E, p. 305-309).

James Caudill Jr' s wives
Note on the spouses for James states that Sarah Elizabeth James Caudill was born 1760 and was James's first wife. However, his youngest child, Abigail was born in 1767, before Sarah's childbearing age. Research on Sarah gives that same date or close. My research on Mary Adams says they married in 1778 so were any of his children Sarah's? Any help you can give would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Brenda Ballew
