"Scotch John's" death date - Virginia
Posted by: Scott Simpson Date: December 17, 1999 at 14:05:48
  of 340

John Michie's will was written in 1772 and probated in 1778 (see the will at http://cgi.rootsweb.com/~genbbs/genbbs.cgi/USA/Va/AlbemarleWill?read=3). Edgar Woods says he died in 1777, and I keep seeing modern researchers make the same assertion. Could someone tell me, please, how we know a better death date than the "about 1778" that the will's probate affords?

Thanks!

Scott
