The petition of sundry inhabitants of this County by the North
Mountain, in Captain Harrison's and Captain Love's Companies,
humble sheweth: That your petitioners are daily troubled by John
O'Neal, a person of evil fame, who, being ill natured, evil designing,
citigious, wicked man, he often takes occasion to come to the
houses of some of your petitioners and then designedly raises
and foments disputes with them in which he makes use of the most
opprobrious and abuseful words he can invent, and as he is bound
to the peace, dares any one to strike him, therefore, should any
of us strike or beat him we know not what might be the consequence
as we are unacquainted with the law and his usual manner threatens
to shoot us if he sees any of us out of our own plantations, that
he will do us all the damage he can by killing our horses, cattle,
&c., and when reproved of his misbehavior he tells us that
if he does any action, be it ever so bad, that he will be cleared
by this Court for two pieces of eight. His behavior is such
that your petitioners are afraid to leave their families to go
about their lawful affairs, not knowing but he may fulfill his
threats before our return by killing our wifes or children, burning
our houses, or doing some other irreparable damage, and , as doubtless
your Worships is well acquainted with the behavior of this malicious
man, we hope you will take our case into consideration and fall
upon some method to hinder him from being guilty of such outrages
and irregularities for the future. That we, being subjects to
his Majesty and the laws of the Dominion, may be no longer abused
by such a person in the above manner, and your petitioners, as
in duty bound, shall ever pray. --Daniel Harrison, Robert Harrison

far, etc., the corner of Samuel Wilkins, and that of Green &
Co., under whom said Wilkins claims he has ever since been well
acquainted with the lands, etc.; that the lines were not marked
until the patent issued, and the reason Wood gave for it was that
when he was about to survey the same, he himself was damned drunk
and the rest concerned were in the same condition. etc. (Signed)
Daniel Harrison. 16th December, 1767. Daniel Smith, gent., aged
about thirty-seven years: About 12 years ago he was appointed

found he did not have 100 acres more for deponent and then canceled
the bargain, for which John Wilkins, son of Samuel, paid Harrison
5£. Thomas Lewis deposes: That about 1745, talking with
Col. James Wood about the difficulty of finding corners on protracted
plots when the survey afterwards came to be made, said Wood told
this deponent how lucky he had been in a matter of this kind in
a plot that he had made for McCay, Hite and Green, on the waters
of Cook's Creek, for that he had only run the lines along the
courses of the creek and protracted all the other lines and supposed
corners which, where an actual survey was made by him after the
patent issued, he found trees agreeable to most of the supposed
corners which he had mentioned in the protracted plat, or nearly
corresponding thereto, which deponent afterwards found to be the
case on a survey made by him to determine a suit formerly depending
between the said parties. This day Patrick Quin came, etc., and
says that Capt. Daniel Harrison is very ailing; his is afraid
that he will died very soon. (Signed)Abraham Smith. 18th June,

was appointed Deputy Sheriff in orator's place. After some time
orator returned to Virginia and sold a tract of land for 47 pounds,
