Subject: [PEDIGO-L] Ark & Dove Prices: Will extracts of some family members
Date: Wed, 1 Dec 1999 09:08:59 -0500

Baltimore Will books (extracts) [My notes are in brackets]
- --------------------------------------------------------

I marked as not connected the ones that I can't piece into my tree yet,
maybe you can help. Also, of particular interest is the will of Benjamin
Price, who appears to be the son of Mordecai Price and Mary Parsons!
However, the dates don't seem to fit. If this is indeed the correct
Benjamin Price, then he probably was not the father of Bejamin (husband of
Millicent) and the old genealogies may be correct. I am very interested in
your opinion on the matter. You'll see I marked that one up pretty good ,
hoping to spark some discussion.

NOTE ESPECIALLY FOR OHHARRIS: The Wheelers and Coles below are the same
Wheeler and Cole family that settled Jefferson and Harrison Counties

NOTE ESPECIALLY FOR OHCARROL: The Prices are the same Price family that
settled Orange County

NOTE ESPECIALLY FOR PEDIGO: These families all married into the Peregoys
multiple times, so I thought this may be of some interest to some of the
list members.

this is indeed the son of Mordecai and Mary]; Micajah and John Tipton, all
my lands in the State of Kentucky [The land James Price was born in in
Lexington was probably a nearby tract, but this can't be the same piece of
land since it was all given away to a different family member; conversely,
if this is the progenitor of Christopher Price's family, son Thomas' land in
Kentucky came from somewhere else; more likely this Benjamin is not the
progenitor; the question remains as to whether this is the son of Mordecai
and Mary!]; nephew Nicholas Stevenson [John Price also had a daughter Ann
