Lists 10 children (Frances missing). Further says that the estate is made up of several negroes, personal property and a small piece of land that should amount to less then $100 for each claimant. Lucy should get her 1/3 part and the land should be sold. Lucy to be guardian of Peggy who was under age. image 3 Lucy agrees to this.
"Other Crisps in early America were found in the 1787 state census of Virginia, where John Crisp was found in Cumberland Co and William Crisp was in Amherst Co. William had a daughter Mary who married on 1 Aug. 1796 (to Charles Pervis), so this would place her birth back to 1777 or before and the birth of her father back to about 1750 or before. William Crisp died on 14 Feb. 1807. John Crisp served in the Revolutionary War, and his pension application said that he was born in 1755 in Prince George Co, VA. Some of the descendants of John had migrated into TN by the early 1800s and are on our list, I believe. Amherst and Cumberland Counties are not too far apart in western VA, and according to their birth dates somewhere about 1750 this William and John might possibly have been brothers, but this would be purely a guess."

Note: Nelson County was formed in 1807 from Amherst county and was named for the third Governor of Virginia, Thomas Nelson, Jr. Crisp marriages were found in Amherst County for pre-1807 and in Nelson County for post-1807. I believe that this could mean that the Crisps lived in the area which became Nelson Co. in 1807.
