      Glasscock's Will

      In the name of God; Amen, I John Glasscock, of the County of Fauquier and
      Parish of Leeds, being thro' the abundant mercy and goodness of God, tho' weak
      in body, yet of a Sound and perfect understanding and memory; do constitute
      this my last will and testament; and desire it to be received by all as such,
      I first bequeath my Soul to God, my maker beseeching his most gracious
      acceptance of it, thro' the all sufficient merits and mediation of my most
      compassionate Redeemer, Jesus Christ, who gave himself to be an attonement for
      my Sins, and is able to save, to the uttermost, all that come unto God by him,
      Seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them, and who, I trust will not
      reject me, a returning penatent Sinner, when I come to him for mercy; in this
      hope and confidence, I render up my Soul with comfort, humbly beseeching the
      noe; blessed and glorious Trinity, one God most holy; most merciful and
      gracious, to prepare me for the time of my dissolution, and then to make me to
      himself into that peace and rest, and incomparable felicity, which he has
      prepared for those that love him, Amen, blessed be God. Imprinta, I give my
      body to the earth, from whence it was taken, in full assurance of its
      resurrection from thence at the last day: as for my burial, I desire it may be
      decent, at the discretion of my dear wife, and son John, whom I leave
      executors of this my last will and testament.

      It is my will and desire that the Legacies shall be in my dear wife's
      possession during her natural life, or that she shall have a sufficient
      maintenance. I give my son Thomas One Thousand pounds of Crop Tobacco, also
      what land and other effects, I gave him before.

      To my Son Hezekiah, I give a Negro Harry, and my black horse of that mare,
      also my best feather bed and furniture, and a ten gallon pot, potrack and pot-
      hooks. To my Son George, I give my horse Prince. To my Daughter Mary Rictor I
      give a pewter dish, and what else she has had. To my Daughter Margaret Turly;
      I give my next bed and furniture with what she has already had. To my Son in
      law Francis Jackson I desire he shall receive what Mr. William Brent owes me.
      To my Son John I give the Land whereon I live, containing One hundred and
      Eighty eight Acres, more or less, being bounded by the Church road of Sizas;
      also all my personal estate; Instate whatsoever that I shall be possessed with
      when it is the will of God to take me out of this World. To my son John, and
      together with my dear wife, I leave executors of this my last will and
      testament. In witness whereof, I have hereunto Set my hand and Seal the 9th
      day of December in the year of our Lord, 1780.

      Additional Comments:
      John Glasscock had a grnat of 633 acres in 1728 "above the thoroughfare of
      Broad Run, at the foot of Mother Leathercoat Mountain." He built a home later
      north of Rectortown he called "Rockburn" (ecause he had to build fires on the
      great rocks to break them up before they could be removed). The house was of
      four rooms and cellar. It was burned and rebuilt during the Civil War, but
      remained in the Glasscock Family into the 20th Century. The cellar still
      remains as a wall in the garde of the present house on the old Rockburn
      Cemetery remains.
