      The identification of George Neville and Joseph Minter as "brothers" must be interpreted to mean "brothers-in-law." The wife of Joseph Minter apparently was a sister of Joseph Bohannon since she does not appear in family records as a sister of Elizabeth Neville Bohannon (SOCIETY OF JOHN NEVILLE DESCENDANTS NEWSLETTER, Issue 16, February 1978). Her name was Mary (Fauquier County, Virginia,
      Will Book 1, 1759-1783, Reel 31, pages 253-254).
