Note: This document comes from a handwritten instrument, found in thefiles
of the Williamson County TN courthouse Archives. I believe it tobe

(b. 1663 England, d. 1731 Henrico VA. Came to VA on ship Richardand

will also are on file in Williamson Co TN archives.

not probated until after the death of his wife, Ann, in 1811.Benjamin

Apparently, he did not satisfy the terms of the will, and after the
death of his sister Elizabeth Young (in 1818), her children filedin
circuit court to have Knacy Andrews provide an accounting of the
proceeds of the estate of Ephraim Andrews, and to 'come up' withthe

is hereto attached (marked A, and prayed to be made a part of this file)which
said will was afterwards in due time and form found and recorded in thecounty
in which said testator died, and Knacy Andrews and Benjamin Bugg theexecutors
named in said will therefore complied with the requirements of the law insuch
cases, and took upon themselves the execution of the said will and sincethat
time Benjamin Bugg, one of the said executors died, leaving the said Knacy
Andrews sole surviving executor of said last will and testament. And your
orator and oratrixes further show unto your honor that the said Knacy took
possession of, and yet maintains possession of a ? part of the property
belonging to the estate of the said testator and the proceeds of the same

children upon the contingency happening, which is mentioned in said will,that
your orators and oratrixes mother, Elizabeth Young is dead, and yourorator

all the proceeds and property thereof rightfully and lawfully belongs toyour
said orator and oratrixes in equal portions except the portion of WilliamKyle

orator and oratrixes further show unto your honor that a considerable sumof
money remains in the hands of the said defendant, unaccounted for andwhich
your orator and oratrixes are rightfully entitled to receive, and yourorator
and oratrixes have several

Note: I also have, among many court documents, the answer to this lawsuit
filed by Knacy Andrews. It is even more difficult to read than theprevious
documents, and my eyes just won't do it. However, the document does, on
several occasions, mention John Young, and that John and Elizaabeth Young
were the parents of the complainants. The names of their children, and
later, Nancy and Obadiah Driskill's children, are names common to thefamily
of Michael Cadet YOUNG, of Brunswick County VA. Although no connectionhas
yet been found (on paper) it would be appropriate to assume that JohnYoung
descends from this heralded family. There is also no mention of whereJohn
Young was, but it seems that he was not present at the time of Elizabeth
Andrews Young's death in 1818.

In the April session of 1820, William Young also sued Ephraim Andrews Jr.,
for $1350 purportedly for properties from the estate of Ephraim AndrewsSr.
which he had sold, and had not disbursed the proceeds. Other lawsuits
followed, with the final disposition of the estate in 1826.

and Testament, revoking and disannulling all other wills or bequests ( ?? )

Item: I give or lend unto my kind, loving wife Ann Andrews, my land and
plantation whereon I now live during her natural life, and after herdeath I
give my (lands?) unto my son, Abraham Andrews, the above mentioned land
whereon I now live containing one hunded and ( ? )-three acres, to him and
his heirs forever.
Item: I also lend unto my kind, beloved wife, Ann Andrews, all myhousehold,

every kind together with all my plantation utensils and seven Virginiaborn

At a Court held for Lunenburg County this (13?) day of September 1799.
This last Will and Testament of Abraham Andrews, deceased, was exhibitedin
Court and proved by the oaths of the witnesses thereto subscribed, and
ordered to be recorded.
Lunenburg Co., VA. Will Book 8, page 82. Inventory and Appraisal of Estate
of Abraham Andrews. Slaves: Reuben, Silvy, and David. (Reuben and Silvy
both mentioned in the will). This was in 1820, certainly a long time after
Abraham died. Does this mean that his wife, Ann, lived until approximately
this time?
*I have no proof regarding a date of birth, but have seen it "about 1734."
This is the approximate same date of birth as our Peter Andrews, so thereis
no way they could be father and son.
>From Lunenburg Co. VA. Marriage Records by Vogt:
Peter Andrews m. Amy Cooper 12 Nov. 1794
*The only thing I can use regarding a date of birth for this Peter is the
marriage record. Is his estimated date of birth about 1770? (If so, refer
to the information following the will of the other Peter Andrews, who
appears as the son of John Andrews in Chesterfield Co. in 1756 Tithelist).
Lunenburg Co. Deed Book 17, page 208. Indenture made 9 April 1796. Between
Abraham Andrews and Peter Andrews, Jr. both of Lunenburg Co. Abraham sold
to Peter, 133 acres. Recorded: 14 April 1796.
*The Jr. indicates that there was another, older Peter Andrews. Remember,
Jr. was not always the son of Sr. Which is true in this case. I think
Abraham was selling some land to his son, who had been married a littleover
a year, and he was the younger Peter Andrews in the county.
Lunenburg Co. Deed Bk. 27, page 105. Written 28 March 1826. Lowry Andrews
of Lunenburg Co., for love of his father, Peter Andrews of same Co., andto
his mother, Onie Andrews, gave them all his property (stock and goods)
together with his interest in the Estate of Abraham Andrews, deceased,which
I have now in possession or may hereafter be in possession of. Signed:
Lowry Andrews
Witnesses: Jesse K. Andrews, L?.R. Andrews, Webster Gill.
Recorded: 10 April 1826.
*This seems to link Abraham, whose estate hadn't been settled too many
years, with Peter, and Peter's son, Lowry. This proves this Peter was
alive in 1826. The other Peter Andrews died in 1810.
Lunenburg Co. Will Book 11, page 157. Will of Peter Andrews:
Wife: Oney
Two sons: William A. Andrews and Lanxton C. Andrews.
Witnesses: Charles N? Gee, Francis Gill, Dennis Gee.
Recorded: 8 Aug. 1836
Page 173 seemed to be the same will. The wife's name (Oney above) "might"
be Amy or Emy.
Lunenburg Co. Deed Book 33, page 191-A. Elizabeth Thompson (formerly
Elizabeth Andrews, daughter of Peter Andrews, deceased) and husband
Spotswood Thompson sold to William A. Andrews, their portion of theestate.
Recorded September 1843?
