      Anne Gist's depositon was taken at the home of her SON, John Gist. The information in Tyler's Quarterly, Vol. 21, No. 1, pp. 60-61 mistakenly stated that John Gist was her husband.

      Deposition of Anne Gist, age about 80 years or thereabouts, taken 23 May 1769, Loudoun County, Virginia:

      "She sayeth that John Simpson of Stafford County who died about twelve years ago was eldest son of John Simpson who was a Scotsman and Father to this deponent. That the next two eldest Brothers of John Simpson and Sons of John Simpson Scotsman died about 50 years ago (as well as she remembers) and that she understood that Henry Thompson by his last will and Testament bequeathed 300 acres of land on Powells Creek then in Stafford County to the three eldest sons of the said John Simpson Scotsman. That the Brothers and Joint Legatees with the first mentioned John Simpson died without claiming any part of the Bequest and that the surviving Brother John Simpson by Deed gave the said 300 acres to James Halley, the present Defendant."
