WILL OF WILLIAM DAILEY JR.

Submitted by Shirley Hargrove August 21, 2006

Born about 1750, he was the son of William Dailey Sr. and Frances. His first transaction I have found is recorded in Brunswick County Deed Book #14 page 84 on May 12, 1780. William and wife Patsy of Meherrin Parish sold 1/3 of 320 acres received from estate of William Dailey , Sr. to John Sturdivant. The next record found is his will dated April 14, 1800 in Mecklenburg County and reads:

In the name of GOD Amen, I WILLIAM DAILEY, of the County of Mecklenburg, being in perfect mind and memory do make and ordain this my last will and testament in manner and form following; I give unto my beloved wife PATSY DAILEY one cow and calf, one horse, colt and two beds of furniture, one sow and pigs and kitchen furniture and after my wife's death my will and desire is that the things given to her should be equally divided between my two children, VINES DAILEY (married Rebecca Adams October 14, 1795)AND BETSY ADAMS( married Sackfield Adams January 23, 1795). Item; I lend to my daughter BETSY during her natural life one bed and furniture, one cow, calf and after my daughter's death my will and desire is that the things lent to her be equally divided between her children. My will and desire is that all of my property not mentioned should be sold and my just debts paid and the balance of the money I give to my wife PATSY DAILEY I ordain and appoint my friend WILLIAM CREATH (spelling) executor of this my last will and testament, utterly denouncing and revoking other wills by me made.
