William Price's will was dated 4 Dec 1809 and made in Pittsylvania Co. He stated previous gifts to children. Cutbird to receive the land where he was living, 220 acres, and a parcel bounded the the old Path, the Rocky Branch, and Adkinsons line - 40 acres. Son-in-law William McDaniel $1. The rest of the estate for maintenance of wife Susannah Price, to be distributed by her as she wished. Sons Daniel, Maraday, and Major to be Executors. Signed: William Price. Wit: James Matney, Leroy Shelton, Adin Gray and Joseph Talor. Proved 20 Nov 1815.

There were possibly two more daughters but no definite proof is known. A Joyce Price married 14 Feb 1805 William Soyars of Pittsylvania Co VA. Hannah Price said to have been named in a court suit resulting from the indenture of Susannah Price in 1815 - this paper has not been located. Neither of these possible daughters were listed in the family Bible record. I would strongly suspect that these are daughter of a son, quite likely son William.


William PRICE and Susannah BURTON were married on 29 March 1752 in Henrico County, Virginia.41,45 Susannah BURTON35,41,42, daughter of Hutchens BURTON and Susannah ALLEN, was born on 15 January 1738 in Henrico County, Virginia.45 She died after 1815 at the age of 77.

Susannah made a deed on 18 Sep 1815, quite possibly this was done upon the death of her husband. It was made between Susannah and Daniel Price also of Pittsylvanis and Major Price of Caswell Co, NC. Cites the last will and testament of William Price, dec'd. Susannah had arrived at advanced age and was infirm and she wished to give her children and grandchildren their property. She named the following: William McDaniel, son-in-law; Polly Burton, daughter; Children of Robert Price, son, and released him for any indebtedness to the estate; children of Patsy McDaniel, dec'd daughter; children of Molly McDaniel, dec'd daughter; children of Nancy Stokes, dec'd daughter; John Price, son; Betsy Perkins, daughter; Cutbird Price, son; Major Price, son of Caswell Co NC; Maraday Price, son of Caswell Co NC. Deed signed: Susannah Price, Maradeth Price, Major Price, Daniel Price. Wit: Silvester Stokes, Joseph Taylor, William D. McDaniel, James Layans, W. Beavers, Jeduthan Carter Jr. [Pittsylvania DB 21, p.9]

William PRICE and Susannah BURTON had the following children:

81

i.

Sarah PRICE35 was born on 8 January 1754.35,45

Sarah married 13 Feb 1773, Walthall Burton, a first cousin, son of William Allen & Mary Walthall Burton. They were living in Chester Co SC in 1784 when Waltall Burton purchased 400 acres from Daniel Price, Sarah's uncle. Walthall Burton sold this land and moved to Stokes Co NC where there is a deed of sale for a slave on 7 Sep 1796.

82

ii.

Susannah PRICE35,46 was born on 26 March 1756.45

There is a marriage of a Susannah Price who married 5 May 1805 in Pittsylvania Co VA to Drury Adkins. John Price was bondsman. William Price, Sr, her father, gave permission.

This is surely a third generation Susannah, not a daughter of William Price & Susannah Burton. It is possible the transcription is in error and her father was William Price, Jr. Or possibly Susannah Price has a brother or younger cousin in the area who was still another William.
