      Apr. 26, 1768 - The St. Mary's Co., Md. inventory of Nicholas Mills shows his next-of-kin as George Greenwell and Clement Medley.
      Source: Maryland Prerogative Court, Inventories, Liber 97, p. 272.

      Comment: The purpose of including this record under Ignatius Wimsatt is to help establish that his first wife was Mary Mills Medley, the dau. of Nicholas Mills and widow of Clement Medley. This is necessary because the 1760/1768 St. Mary's Co. will of Nicholas Mills neglects to name all his children. Maryland Calendar of Wills, Vol. 14, p. 33. The 1771/1772 St. Mary's Co. will of Clement Medley may be found at Maryland Calendar of Wills, Vol. 14, p. 212 (names wife Mary and 6-7 children.) For records of Ignatius Wimsatt, see pp. 41-43 of "The Wimsatt Family of St. Mary's Co., Maryland," by Ralph D. Smith. These include 1779-1785 records of Mary's brother, Nicholas Mills [Jr.], the son of the Nicholas Mills who d. testate in 1768.
