Caution: I do not do research for others. Am too old and too busy with
multiple volunteer jobs. However, since an umpteen great-uncle, Tyree Harris
and his then wife Elizabeth Harris witnessed this deed (abstracted), I will
quote it for you.
In all probablity, you will want to order this book from which I am quoting
from Mrs. Rosalie Edith Davis at (W Davis). Her
books on Louisa Co. and Hanover Co., VA are quite reasonably priced and are
chuck full of info about early Louisa Co. residents.

Later on the same page:
DB B-174 21 Feb 1757 Vincent Tullock [could this be Bullock?] of Louisa
Co., Carpenter, and Frances, his wife, to William Shelton of same, Taylor.
L20 100 acres ... Beginning at Richard Bullock's, Edward Bullock's and John
Wit: Tyree Harris, John (M) Matlock, Thos. Shelton, Francis Austin. 24 May
1757 proved by oaths of Tyree Harris, John Matlock and Francis Austin.
1. Tyree Harris, whose father was Major Robert Harris, surveyor of Louisa
Co., later migrated ca 1753 to Orange Co., NC. He died testate in Caswell
Co., NC. One of the Harris ladies married a William Shelton.
2. A Richard Bullock is found in the early records of Granville Co., NC. He
was the progenitor of a great many Bullocks in that county. Look for books
by Zae Hargett Gwynn and also Margaret M. Hofmann (land grants in NC).
3. Edward Bullock probably is related to Richard Bullock, but the above
deeds do not reveal the relationship. Perhaps there might be something in
Louisa Co. court records.
4. There is another deed Thomas Poindexter the elder of Fredericksville
Par., Louisa Co. to Vincent Tullok, his son-in-law (DB B-69-70). The land
adjoins that of the Bullocks mentioned above. You might want to check the
filmed records to see how the name appears.
Hope this helps--but probably confuses!!!
who has found many relationships in these abstracts of Mrs. Davis
