Hardy County Wills

Will of James Sears, 10 July 1782

This photocopy of the will of James Sears, written in 1782 in Hampshire County was submitted by Melissa Teague

Here is the Will of James Sears, born 1720 in Gloucester County, Virginia, died 12 August 1783 in Hampshire County, Virginia. It is one of the documents I copied at the Hardy County Courthouse that was stored in a Tupperware tub in the room with the will books. As you can see it is in very fragile condition.  

What was especially important to my research is that it proves his daughter Catherine Sears, married William Shook, and it is signed by William Shook's father Hermanous Shook
