Nicholas Cox left his estate to his Mosby grandchildren. After reading it more carefully, it indicates that granddaughter Agnes, daughter of Hezekiah Mosby will get her share when she is 21 or marries. The will was dated 1759. If Agnes Mosby was born in 1736, she would have been 21 and received her inheritance without waiting to marry or reach age of 21. I stand by my original belief that there is either an Agnes that died, and another girl named Agnes, or that someone has mixed up two Agnes Mosby. Hezekiah's will also mentions his daughter Agnes that married Samuel Rice, but she had already died at that point [died 1774]. The fact that he was not aware that she was deceased leads me to believe that there could have been hard feelings between the two men. Both families were still in VA at that time.
