We left off where Orange County Virginia State Archive Land patent for400 acres (the branches of Stoney bridge River 26March 1739 Vir.Remember this shows connection to thomas11 and John Gully.Aug.22nd.Purchased land 95Acres same land given to Richard and Enoch.400acres On Stoney bridge River sold to John Gulley .
Thomas Sr.and Thomas11and Enoch were all literate at least they wrote their names.Richard was not and signed with an X.Remember school was held when crops came in.Some months the plowing and snting had to be done.A lot of school children probably missed school or didn't go at all.Can you imagine how tired they were after planting and plowing .Then all the other chores on the farm.Remember slaves were still used .Sharecropping too.I know about1941my Daddy talked about not planting until after good Friday .So school was not a priority.
