Notes

Note
Abstract of WILL OF JAMES COLQUITT ‎(4)‎ : ‎(Spells the name "Colquit".)‎

Date: 26 April, 1774,
Ex.: Wife, Sarah, and friends Peter Samuel and John Bransoms.
Wit.: John Lee, James Shaddock, Hannah Shaddock.
Prov.: 15 Aug., 1774, Essex Co., Va.
Names: Wife, Sarah; children, Pheebe ‎(Phebee)‎, Sarah Gibson, Ann Garnett.

"I lend to my Dear Wife During her Life the Plantation on which I Live, and after her Death I give the said Plantation to my Daughter Pheebe and her heirs and the three Negroes aforesaid to be equally divided among my Children".

" .all the remainder of my Estate I give to my Wife During her Life, and then to be Divided among my Children".

‎(WB, 12, Essex Co., Va.)‎

NOTE: In this will the daughter Pheebe is by far the most favored legatee, indicating that she is perhaps the youngest child, unmarried, and had not previously received any portion of her father's property.

Nothing in his will indicates that the said three daughters are all his children. His sons are not mentioned in the will, but family records show that he had sons named William Samuel Colquitt ‎(named in the will of his maternal grandfather Frederick Coghill (2)‎, who spells the name "Corkitt"), James Wales Colquitt, and John Hawes Colquitt; and said records with other proof, show that the son James Wales Colquitt ‎(usually called only James or
James W.)‎ moved to Georgia, and died there.

Sarah Colquitt, widow of James Colquitt ‎(4)‎, is shown by the Records of the State Enumerations of Va., 1782 to 1785 ‎(Heads
of Families of the First Census, Va., 1790)‎, as follows:
Sarah Colquit ‎(1783)‎, Essex Co.---- 1 white.

Erroneous is the statement made that James Colquitt ‎(4)‎ moved to Ga. ‎(TYLER, Vol. XVII, No. 4, p. 247)‎
That he did not move to Ga., but lived and died in Essex Co., Va., is proved by his will and OFR. It was his son, James Wales
Colquitt ‎(5)‎, who moved to Ga., as stated above.
