I was able to get to the State Archives just long enough to look up the Surry Co, NC will for Patsy Cook, written 1832. Didn't make a copy because it didn't look to me like it was the right one. But after I checked out the names, I think that it was! Will get a copy next time I'm there and post the entire thing. Basically though, Patsy left various clothes, bedding etc to Ferebe Sisk, Elizabeth Finch, and Polly Jonson. She named her husband as John Cook and said that he could live on her land as long as he was alive or stayed a widower. Then she named Allen Sisk to sell the land when John wasn't on it anymore and divide the money amongst "my 3 daughters". She didn't name them but would assume they were the ones mentioned earlier. That was pretty much all. I didn't write down the witnesses or executor but I believe that Allen Sisk was named executor. Nothing tying her to the Womack's at all! Found marriage records for Ferrybe Harvill to Jesse Sisk, Betsy Harvel to Millington Finch, and Mary Harvil to Reuben Johnson, so this seems to indicate that this Patsy was married to a Harvill at some point. Is there documented evidence that this was David? Also is there documented evidence that David's wife's name was Mary? Patsy is a nickname for Martha. Am also responding to Bob with other info. If you wish to contact me "off-list" my address is birls "at" boone.net Oh yeah, the citation for this will is Surry County Will Book 4, p. 43
