Pierce Mothershead Family Ties


The 1778 Will of Bromfill(sic) LONG of St. Mark's Parish in Culpepper Co VA names wife, Sarah, sons: John, Bromfield, Reuben, Gabriel and Thomas; daughters: Nancy CHISHAM, Betty LONG, Milly LONG. "My son Benjamin LONG's son, Benjamin LONG" (my note: I'm assuming Bromfill means his grandson, Benjamin, and I presume "son Benjamin" is deceased already, or at least cut from his father's Will) Executors: son John LONG, son Bromfield LONG.
