This appears to be the final accounting of Levy Blankinship's administration of Asa's estate. What happened to Asa's family after this is unclear. The account continues thru pages 95, 96, 97, 98 and 99 and consists mostly of payment of Asa's debts, payment of Asa's family's living expenses and "Cash to the widow" That there was more than one Asa Blankenship in Lunnenburg see: Lunn CTO BK 16-77: Asa Blankenship to be ensign in the room of Francis Smithers who is promoted 4 Jul 1795

Will of Hezekiah Blankenship

Halifax County, Virginia.

Will Book 20 Pg 447 - May 3, 1844

I make this my last will and testament, firstly, I want John J Throckmorton to take all of my estate in hand and first sell all the Peters Creek tract of land that lies below the road from Richard Edmundson's to Wm. Allen's mill, and after selling that land, I want him to advertise and sell all my land. I want it to be at his discretion about the time of the sale of the land. I want him to sell every piece of property and everything except the negroes and my blood mare and Sarpeslon Colt. (3) I want the sale of my property to be in the fall, or any time when he thinks best, and after he has sold all and paid my debts, I wish him to make a division of my Estate, when he thinks proper for it to be done. I wish it made in the following manner: Firstly, after all my debt is paid, I want my son Levi A. Blankenship to have one hundred dollars out of my Estate. I want the balance of my Estate equally divided with my daughters, towit, Mary M. New, Nancy G. Blankenship, Elizabeth L. Dismukes, Martha C. McCargo, Susan N. Blankenship, Sarah A. Blankenship, Leticia A. D. Blankenship, and my wife Elizabeth S. Blankenship. (4) I want John J Throckmorton to manage my Estate just as he would his own and sell the lands and make deeds for it, that shall be good and permanent from me and my heirs, as same as if I had of made it myself. I wish the sale of the land to be wholly at his DISCRETION. I do not require the said John J Throckmorton to give any security. I wish Ray Portjeo to remain in the house where he now lives, five years, that is, if his behavior deserves it, and if my Estate will admit of the sale of the said lands, to be put off of to that time. But I wish it to be just as John J Throckmorton thinks best. I want Joseph to tend all the ground that he cleared, two years for clearing (that is after the present year). He is to keep half of what he and Marshall make this year.(5) He is to pay rent on the land that he cleared, after having it for two years, for the clearing. I want John J Throckmorton to have his own control about selling any tract or piece of land, when he thinks best to sell it, publicly or privately, just as he thinks best, and in fact, I want him to wind up my Estate, just as he thinks best, and sell my land and make a division, just when he thinks best. I wish him to get the Commissioners to take this tract of land where I now live, back, provided they will pay one hundred dollars for the improvements I have made on it, and pay back the two hundred dollars I have paid for it. But I leave that to John J Throckmorton, to do it if he thinks best, or if he thinks it best not to do it. As witness my hand and seal the day and year above written.(6)

Answer: I was present at the sale of the Terrapin tract on Hazel Branch. The land belonged to Little John McCargo Sr. bot by Little John McCargo Jr. I think the size of the tract on the day of the sale was stated to be eighty acres more or less. Little John McCargo Jr. has been in possession of this tract of land since the day of the sale, claiming it as his own property. I think the sale was in the year 1855, and further deponent saith not. /s/ Gilderoy Yeats

Question by pltf counsel: please state what you know about the sale of a tract of land called the Terrapin tract on Hazel Branch in Halifax County Virginia belonging to Little John McCargo Sr to Little John [S.] McCargo Jr. (21)

Answer: I was at the sale. It was in the year 1855 I think. I was a bidder for one of the tracts of land sold by Little John McCargo Sr on that day, there were two tracts sold, one on Difficult Creek, the other on Hazel Branch {and called the Terrapin Tract} and Little John McCargo, Jr bought both of them and has been in possession of both tracts ever since claiming them as his own possession. Little John McCargo, Sr was present at the sale, conducting it.

Question by same: Do youi recolect the terms on which the tract of land was sold.

Answer: The Difficult tract was certainly sold upon a credit to the 1st day of June for one-third of the purchase price, and upon a credit of 12 months for the remaining two-thirds of the purchase money, and I think the Terrapin tract was sold upon the same terms, and of this I feel pretty confident, though my attention was more particularly called to the Difficult tract, because I was a bidder for the same. The sale was early in January 1855. I have known Little John McCargo, Jr. since his boyhood. He was born where I live and I know that he has owned no other lands in Virginia except the two tracts bought of his father in January 1855 as before stated.

Question by same: Please state what you know about the execution of Little John McCargo's Jr. bonds for the above two tracts of land.

Answer: William Bacon, the admr of Wm. H. Callicott, dec'd, staid at my house on his way to the sale of these 2 tracts of land and said that he didn't intend to interfere with the sale but that the bonds taken from the purchasers for the tracts was to come to him as adm'r of Callicott to pay money which Little John McCargo Sr owed to the Callicott estate. Mr. Bacon afterwards told me that he had gotten the bonds and that Dr. Fleming was the was the security of Little John McCargo Jr. and that he had [maily] enough money in his hands to make the first payment and further deponent saith not.

The deposition of William Bacon taken at the dwelling house of Wm. Bacon in Charlotte County Va. on the 25th of April 1860, between the hours of 10 O'clock AM and [blank] PM of that day to be read as evidence in a suit in equity now pending in the circuit court of Halifax Co. Va., Little John McCargo, Jr. pltf, and Wm. Bacon, adm'r de bonis non of William H. Callicott dec'd and others, as defendants.

The deponent Wm. Bacon, being first duly sworn on the Holy Evangelists of Almighty God, deponent saith:

Question by defendant's counsel: Please state what you know about the sale in the year 1855, of a tract of land called the Terrapin tract and lying on the Hazel branch in the county of Halifax, belonging to Little John McCargo Sr and also about the payment of purchase money for the sd tract of land?

Answer: Sometime in the year 1855 (the winter of that year) Little John McCargo Sr., sold at public auction two tracts of land in the County of Halifax, one of these tracts had a dwelling house on it and was situated on Difficult Creek. The other was a smaller tract and I have since been informed and I believe was situated on Hazel Branch and called the Terrapin Tract - Little Jno S. McCargo Jr. bought both of the above tracts & executed his bonds for the same to the said McCargo Sr. with B. R. Fleming as his security. Both bonds are dated 2 May 1855. One of them for $ 12,193.81 & payable the 25th Dec 1855. The other for $2,587.62 & payable the 25th Dec 1855. These bonds embrace the entire purchase money for both of the above tracts of land and were transferred to me by sd McCargo Sr. to pay his debt to the est of Wm. Callicott, dec'd, of which I was adm'r. Both of these bonds have been paid in full to me by Little John S. McCargo Jr & long since given up to him. and further deponent saith not.

LITTLE JOHN McCARGO JR.





The deposition of Gilderoy Yeats and Julius Hudson taken in pursuance of the annexed notice at the store house of Adkinson & Britton at Clover Depot, in Halifax Co. Va. on the 28th of March 1860 between the hours of 10 O'clock AM and 6:00 PM of that day to be read as evidence in a suit in equity now pending in the circuit court of Halifax Co. Va., Little John McCargo, Jr. pltf, and Wm. Bacon, adm'r de bonis non of William H. Callicott dec'd and others, as defendants.



The deponent [Gilderoy] Yeats, being first duly sworn on the Holy Evangelists of Almighty God, deponent saith:

Question by pltf counsel: please state what you know about the sale of a tract of land to Little John McCargo Jr by Little John McCargo Sr called the Terrapin tract on Hazel Branch in Halifax County Virginia and in whose possession sd tract of land is at this time and has been since the sd sale by Little John McCargo Sr.

Answer: I was present at the sale of the Terrapin tract on Hazel Branch. The land belonged to Little John McCargo Sr. bot by Little John McCargo Jr. I think the size of the tract on the day of the sale was stated to be eighty acres more or less. Little John McCargo Jr. has been in possession of this tract of land since the day of the sale, claiming it as his own property. I think the sale was in the year 1855, and further deponent saith not.

Gilderoy Yeats



The deponent Julius Hudson, being next duly sworn, depose & saith:

Question by pltf counsel: please state what you know about the sale of a tract of land called the Terrapin tract on Hazel Branch in Halifax County Virginia belonging to Little John McCargo Sr to Little John McCargo Jr.

Answer: I was at the sale. It was in the year 1855 I think. I was a bidder for one of the tracts of land sold by Little John McCargo Sr on that day, there were two tracts sold, one on Difficult Creek, the other on Hazel Branch {and called the Terrapin Tract} and Little John McCargo, Jr bought both of them and has been in possession of both tracts ever since claiming them as his own possession. Little John McCargo, Sr was present at the sale, conducting it.

Question by same: Do youi recolect the terms on which the tract of land was sold.

Answer: The Difficult tract was certainly sold upon a credit to the 1st day of June for one-third of the purchase price, and upon a credit of 12 months for the remaining two-thirds of the purchase money, and I think the Terrapin tract was sold upon the same terms, and of this I feel pretty confident, though my attention was more particularly called to the Difficult tract, because I was a bidder for the same. The sale was early in January 1855. I have known Little John McCargo, Jr. since his boyhood. He was born where I live and I know that he has owned no other lands in Virginia except the two tracts bought of his father in January 1855 as before stated.

Question by same: Please state what you know about the execution of Little John McCargo's Jr. bonds for the above two tracts of land.

Answer: William Bacon, the admr of Wm. H. Callicott, dec'd, staid at my house on his way to the sale of these 2 tracts of land and said that he didn't intend to interfere with the sale but that the bonds taken from the purchasers for the tracts was to come to him as adm'r of Callicott to pay money which Little John McCargo Sr owed to the Callicott estate. Mr. Bacon afterwards told me that he had gotten the bonds and that Dr. Fleming was the was the security of Little John McCargo Jr. and that he had [maily] enough money in his hands to make the first payment and further deponent saith not.

Julius (X) Hudson



The deposition of William Bacon taken at the dwelling house of Wm. Bacon in Charlotte County Va. on the 25th of April 1860, between the hours of 10 O'clock AM and [blank] PM of that day to be read as evidence in a suit in equity now pending in the circuit court of Halifax Co. Va., Little John McCargo, Jr. pltf, and Wm. Bacon, adm'r de bonis non of William H. Callicott dec'd and others, as defendants.

The deponent Wm. Bacon, being first duly sworn on the Holy Evangelists of Almighty God, deponent saith:

Question by defendant's counsel: Please state what you know about the sale in the year 1855, of a tract of land called the Terrapin tract and lying on the Hazel branch in the county of Halifax, belonging to Little John McCargo Sr and also about the payment of purchase money for the sd tract of land?

Answer: Sometime in the year 1855 (the winter of that year) Little John McCargo Sr., sold at public auction two tracts of land in the County of Halifax, one of these tracts had a dwelling house on it and was situated on Difficult Creek. The other was a smaller tract and I have since been informed and I believe was situated on Hazel Branch and called the Terrapin Tract - Little Jno S. McCargo Jr. bought both of the above tracts & executed his bonds for the same to the said McCargo Sr. with B. R. Fleming as his security. Both bonds are dated 2 May 1855. One of them for $ 12193.81 & payable the 25th Dec 1855. The other for 2587.62 & payable the 25th Dec 1855. These bonds embrace the entire purchase money for both of the above tracts of land and were transferred to me by sd McCargo Sr. to pay his debt to the est of Wm. Callicott, dec'd, of which I was adm'r. Both of these bonds have been paid in full to me by Little John S. McCargo Jr & long since given up to him. and further deponent saith not.

Witnesseth that the late William Ellis, the father of Mary A. McCargo, by his last will and testament, devised to the sd Mary Ellis, a large portion of his estate to dispose of as she thought proper, and the sd John M. McCargo, believing that the sd William Ellis was incompetent from mental imbecility to make a will, opposed the admission of the said will to probate, and all the parties being anxious to settle a family lawsuit, which is likely to be expensive and vexatious and to estrange them from each other.

On the testimony of all and singular the parties have set their hands and affixed their seals the day and date above first shown.
