The Virginia tax Lists (online via roots) shows in Fauquier County in 1790 a household with two taxable adults (both called Thomas Raley) who had 3 adult negro slaves and 6 horses. They had to pay £2/2/- in tax.
In 1799 the same tax list shows two taxable adults (Thomas and John Raley) who had 3 adult negro slaves, one teenage slave and six horses. They had to pay $2.18 in tax [and the currency had changed].
I assume the father was Thomas Raley [your will?] with two sons, Thomas and John.
My interest is that I am seeking birth information on my GtGtGtGtGrandfather Thomas Raley who was born somewhere in America in 1780. He settled in London, England by 1806 where the family lived thereafter.
