According to Will #71 Witness by Johathan B. Brown and Robert Stafford and Exec by Elizabeth and AAron or Asa Davis. "To my beloved wife, Elizabeth, four Negroes: Lacy, Milly, Juno and Peter, with all the former property she was in possession of before marriage. Also the rest of my property to be divided among my heirs, and that as equal as they can, only considering what has been received by those that are gone to be part of the same property.
