      [When Waugh Darnall died in 1726 the land he mentions in his will as lying on Cedar Run was in Stafford County, however it fell into Prince William County upon its formation from Stafford County in 1730. Years later the boundaries came into dispute and a copy of the will of Waugh Darnall was certified to Prince William County Court in 1790. It remains of record in Prince William County Land Causes 1789-1793, page 359. A copy was published in Tyler's Quarterly Historical and Genealogical Magazine, Volume 20, page 169.]
