      Estate Record of William Kitchen
      (There are two different abstracted versions of this record. This is the one I got from the genealogist.)

      [Book B: 116] "Account of 22 April 1775: farm and household items, totaling 53 pounds, 2 shillings. Appraisers Christopher Neal, Edward Day, Nathanial Barker. Received at court September 11, 1775.

      [Book D: 85] "Account of 26 June, 1789: farm and household items, Negro Woman Fann and 4 children, Abram, Jude, Daniel and Virgin. Appraisers: William D. Bell, Benjamin Cockerill, Walter Bayne. Received 13 July 1789.

      [Book M:133] Settling of accounts with executor Daniel Kitchen, 8 July,1816; items beginning 1784, payments including to Daniel Neale and wife Jemima, Joseph Leigh, and wife Margaret, Stephen Leigh, and wife Nancy, Thomas E. Harrison & wife Susannah, JOHN SKIRVIN [SKIRVEN] AND WIFE MARY, leaving 345 pounds 1 shilling five pence. Received 12 May 1817."

      (John and Mary Skirvin need not have been IN Loudoun to be mentioned here.)

      Since we already had enough data that we are sure that John and Mary Ann were indeed from Cameron Parish, Loudoun Co., Virginia, this record was really exciting. But, it was not enough to be sure so a researcher named MichaelAnne tracked down William Kitchen's original will:

      The Will of William Kitchen (With MichaelAnne's notes to me attached.)
