          The Last Will and Testament of Ephraim Andrews
          Note: This document comes from a handwritten instrument, found in thefiles
          of the Williamson County TN courthouse Archives. I believe it tobe
          the Last Will and Testament of Ephraim Andrews, son of WilliamAndrews
          (b. 1696 Henrico VA, d. 1771 Dinwiddie VA), son of Thomas Andrews
          (b. 1663 England, d. 1731 Henrico VA. Came to VA on ship Richardand
          Elizabeth ). Subsequent lawsuits stemming from the execution ofthis
          will also are on file in Williamson Co TN archives.
          In the name of God, amen. I, Ephraim Andrews of Williamson County doappoint
          and ordain this to be my last will and testament.
          Item. I lend to my beloved wife, Ann Andrews, the whole of my estate,both
          real and personal during her life or widowhood.
          Item. And all the rest of my estate both real and personal after mywife's
          decease or widowhood, I desire should be equally divided amongst my
          six children, to wit; George, Knacy H., Ephraim, Stacy, Elizabethand

          eighty two dollars, to be disposed of as she may think proper.

          Item My will and desire is that (Pat, Vine & Nelson?) with theirincrease
          and whatsoever part of my estate or the produce of it as may fallto
          the share of my daughter Elizabeth, then to remain in the hands ofmy
          Executors, hereafter named, as long as her present husband shalllive,
          and at his death, her part of my estate is to be delivered by themto
          her, or in case of her dying before him, my executors are hereby
          required and empowered to divide her part of my estate equallyamong
          such children as she may leave, except Rebeckah Kyle, to which my
          desire is that she may have but one dollar.
          Item. I give and bequeath to my Grandson Howard YOUNG the sum of tenpounds
          cash to be laid out for him at the descretion of my executors,after
          my wife's decease.
          Item. My will and desire is that the price with the hire of one negrofellow
          named Tom that is now in the possession of George Andrews andWilliam
          Drumwright, shall be taken out of their part of the estate, andthe two
          hundred dollars that George Andrews paid the said Drumwright forTom is
          to be subtracted out of the said Drumwright's part of said negro.
          Lastly, I appoint my beloved wife Ann, my son Knacy, and Benjamin Bugg to
          execute this, my last will and testament. In witness, whereof, I have
          hereunto set my hand and seal this eighteenth day of July, one thousand,
          eight hundred and seven. Signed and sealed and pronounced by thetestator as
          his last will and testament, in presence of each other have subscribed our
          Miles MaloneEphraim Andrews
          William Baringhis mark X
          Which foregoing recited will and testament was duly proven in open court
          January session, 1809, by the oaths of miles Malone and William Baring,the
          subscribing witnesses thereto, to be the act and deed of Ephraim Andrewsfor
          the use and purposes therein expressed. At which session Benjamin Bugg
          qualified as executor, and at April session 1809 Ann Andrews and KnacyAndrews
          came into court and qualified likewise and received letters Testamentory.
          Information related to Ephraim Andrews' estate after his death.
          Note: After the death of Ephraim Andrews Sr. in 1808, the will wasapparently
          not probated until after the death of his wife, Ann, in 1811.Benjamin
          Bugg also died, leaving Knacy Andrews as the sole survivingexecutor.
          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
          share of the proceeds which rightfully belonged to ElizabethYoung, or
          her estate. The handwriting of this document is almostunreadable,
          so some words may not be correct, and many are just left out(......).
          I believe, however, that what is here speaks for itself.
          To the Honorable Judge of the Fourth District Court of the State ofTennessee.
          This bill of complaint of William Young, administrator of the estate of
          Elizabeth Young, dec'd, and Francis Young, Thomas Young, Ephraim Young,
          Michael Young, Howard Young by his guardian William Young, Joseph Youngand
          Elizabeth his wife, George Ridley and Martha his wife, Obadiah Driskilland
          Nancy his wife, and William Kyle and Rebecca his wife, heirs of Elizabeth
          Young, deceased, complainants against Knacy Andrews, surviving executor of
          the last will and testament of Ephraim Andrews dec'd., defendant.
          Humbly complaining, showeth unto your honor, your orators and oratrixes,that
          many years ago, this ancestor and grandfather, Ephraim Andrews departedthis
          life having a last will and testament duly executed, a copy of which saidwill
          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
          which was bequeathed
          and ordained by the said testator to his daughter, Elizabeth Young and toher
          children upon the contingency happening, which is mentioned in said will,that
          your orators and oratrixes mother, Elizabeth Young is dead, and yourorator
          Wm. Young ash been duly appointed administrator of her estate at the timeof
          her death, and according to the provisions of the said will all theproperty
          designated therein and all that might have descended to her and diddescend
          to her upon the death of her, the said Elizabeth's mother, Ann Andrews,with
          all the proceeds and property thereof rightfully and lawfully belongs toyour
          said orator and oratrixes in equal portions except the portion of WilliamKyle
          and Rebecca, his wife, who are entitled to a specified sum of money. Andyour
          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
          times applied themselves to the said defendant for a settlement and
          satisfaction of these claims, but the said Knacy knowlingly, and withduress
          offers persons at present unknown to your orator and oratrixes, whosenames
          when discovered they pray may be liable parties to this bill, with aptwords
          to charge them, how to wrong and injure your orator and oratrixes; he
          sometimes gives out that he has claims upon the estate of the saidElizabeth
          Young, by means of which they are delayed and prevented from receivingtheir
          just division all which things and doings of the defendant; and his
          confederates are contrary to equity and good conscience and, true to
          the ...and .....of your orators and oratrixes, who are only properly..... in
          a court of equity. To......that the said Knacy Andrews may ....andperfect
          answer make to all and each of the items charged in this, your orators and
          oratrixes bill of complaint, as fully and positively as if the same were
          herein adjoined.... That he may set forth and describe what amount, kindand
          description of money, property or other and every kind of stock have come
          into his hands as to his having possession, or of others and at what time
          the same will award and how he has managed or disposed of the or any partof
          the monies and property with the proceeds and ....thereof which of right
          belongs as a ..... to your said orators and oratrixes under the said last
          will and testament of the said Ephraim Andrews, deceased, and that thesaid
          Knacy may set forth, and a full and perfect account of the said monies,
          property, and profits of the said estate so belonging to your orators and
          oratrixes, and that he, the said Knacy ma be compelled under orders of the
          honorable court to pay ....and disburse to your orators and oratrixes,
          whatever amount of monies and property may be found to be due and comingto
          them, and that your orators and oratrixes may have such other and further
          relief, as all and singular the premises aforesaid, as the ....and
          circumstances of this case may .....and as to your honor shall deem most
          May it please your honor to grant the gracious writ of subpoena to answer,
          and your orators and oratrixes as in duty bound will we pray.
          Filed February session, 1820.
          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.

          Will Book 4, Page 258-A
          In the name of God, Amen. This Sixteenth day of July anno Domini One
          thousand seven hundred and ninety-nine. I, Abraham Andrews of LmenburgCo.,
          being now sick and weak of body, but of sound mind and memory, for which I
          return my most hearty thanks to Almighty God, and knowing that it is
          appointed for all men once to die and I do now make and this my last Will
          and Testament, revoking and disannulling all other wills or bequests ( ?? )
          heretofore made, ratifying this to my last Will and Testament in manner
          and form following.
          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,
          kitchen furniture, except two feather beds and furniture, all my stock of
          every kind together with all my plantation utensils and seven Virginiaborn
          Negroes namely Silvy, (Nat, Bud?), Rachel Saly, Nelly, and Ely, during her
          natural fife, and after her death to be equally divided between all my
          beloved children, namely Thomas Andrews, Sally Allen, Stacy Cooper,Benjamin
          Andrews, Peter Andrews, Lucretia ( W?), Alexander Andrews, (Kaly?Andrews?),
          Rainey Cooper, Lowry Andews, and Abraham Andrews, to them and their
          heirs forever.
          Item: I give and bequeath unto my son, Lowry Andrews one feather bed and
          furniture, to him and his heirs forever.
          Item: I give and bequeath unto my son Abraham Andrews, a Negro boy named
          Reubin, to him and his heirs forever. I also (leave?) my said son Abraham
          Andrews a feather bed and furniture to him and his heirs forever.
          And lastly, I appoint my sons Thomas Andrews, Benjamin Andrews, Peter
          Andrews, and Alexander Andrews Executors to this my last Will andTestament.
          Signed, sealed and delivered in presence of-
          Jesse Andrews Abraham Andrews (mark)
          Drury Andrews (mark)
          Peter Andrews (mark)
          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?
          Lunenburg Co. Will Book 14, page 17. Will of (Omey?) Andrews.
          sons: William A. Andrews, George W. Andrews, and Langston C. Andrews.
          >From the above sources, I think children of Peter Andrews and Amy(Cooper)
          are: William A. Andrews, Langston Andrews, Lowry Andrews,
          Elizabeth Andrews (m. Spotswood Thompson), and George W. Andrews.
