[Judy asks:  However, looking at 1755, 1759, 1763, and 1767 I find a William Vines.  This William is in the same precinct that the William in 1739 and 1743 was in.  That is just too much of a coincidence for me.  Was the name spelled Vires and miss transcribed as Vines.  How could William Via in precinct 25 be listed in 1739 and 1743 and when the records pick up again in 1755, 1759, 1763, and 1767 a person by the name of William Vines be in the same precinct previously occupied by William Via????]
