I have a copy of the original will, signed May 1, 1777. The following information appears at the end of the will, following the date and signature:
"Signed, sealed, published and declared by the testator to be his last will and testament in the presence of James Cunningham, Sarah Collier, Abraham Vaughn (his mark X), Ann Vaughn (her mark X), Robert Gilliam, Thomas Cox."
Later, the will was probated as follows:
" At a court held for Charlotte County the 2nd day f June 1783, this last will and testament of Thomas Bouldin,Sr., was exhibited in court by Wood Bouldin and Richard Bouldin, the executor therein named, and the same was proved by the oaths of Sarah Collier, Abraham Vaughn, Anne Vaughn, and Thomas Cox, and ordered to be recorded. On the motion of the said executors who made oath according ot law, certificate is granted to them for obtaining a probate of this said will, they giving security,whereupon they together with the Rev. Thomas Johnston and Joseph Collier, their securities entered into and acknowledged their bond acccording to the law for that purpose."
Truly Recorded: Thomas Read, Clerk
According to known records (other than the will) the children of Thomas and Ann Wood Bouldin were:
James b. 1732 d. 1801
Ephriam b. 1734 d. ?
Thomas b. 1736 d. 1827
William b. 1738 d. 1817
Joseph b. 1740 d.
Wood b. 1742 d. 1800
Richard b. 1744*+ d. ?
* a notation in a family bible indicated that Richard was born aboard ship in the Chesapeake Bay as the family moved from Maryland to Virginia
+ An address to the Charlotte County APVA, given 9-26-1970, indicated that as Thomas and Ann Wood Bouldin started the trip from Maryland to Virginia with their six sons, Ann was pregnant.
Mary b. 1846 d.? m. Bartlett (Bartles) Cox
Francina b. 1748 d.? m. John Cox
Both Mary and Francina were born at Golden Hills, Charlotte County,Va.
The names Thomasin and Jenneke do not appear as children of Thomas Bouldin and Ann Wood (Nancy) Bouldin in any family documents. Do you happen to know of the source for these names?
I hope this will help your research.
