      1766 Account of Josias in the Records of Fairfax County VA
      Will Book C no. 1, pp. 31-33 in Fairfax County, VA

      This is September 1766 date. "The Estate of Mr. Josias Mankin .." Among the items noted is "To paid RICHARD TUBMAN MANKIN the Balance of Bond 9.7.2" In August 1767 is noted: "To expenses from Maryland viz To ferriage to and from Maryland, 4.0." Also noted is this extensive account, is "To paid Col. George Mason his rent rect L 9.3.7." "To sundries sold the widow Mrs. Mankin 6.6.8." "To Mankin's claims, L 2.6.0." "By Mary Mankin for sundries ..." This was officially returned on May 13, 1768, by Alednigo Adass, Administrator. From this it is apparent that Josias Mankin and his wife moved to Fairfax County VA, and apparently rented land from Col. George Mason of "Gunston Hall". The Appraisement of his estate follows:
