    It was common for fathers to "sell" their land to sons when
    the father was nearing the end of his life, so that creditors
    could not attach the land during probate to pay debts.
    John McCormick sold his VA property to his brothers
    Province & Thomas in 1795.
    According to the current owner of Lang Sine farm, Francis "sold" Lang
    Sine to his eldest son John in 1793; Francis died in 1794; John sold Lang
    Sine to his brothers Province and Thomas in 1795. This is based on the
    same land transactions referenced above.
