Notes
from 'notes on Doug Tabor's FTW taken from Joe Tabor's Home page:

From the Henrico County, Virginia Court Order Books for June 1698, page 77
comes: "William Tabor aged 27 years deposition: Was employed by John Wortham 1n 1692 and Edward Bratten and Abraham Wommack to clear one whole acre of land lying and being on a place called Cold Water Run being in Henrico County it being ...... land and taking up by the ford of John Worsham and Ed Bratten and above Abra Wommack and did clear, fence and tend one acre of land in and for the consideration of ..... of the said land according to the law of the county in sealing thereof. (signed) William Taber"

In the miscellaneous Court Records of 1702, Page 5 we found William Tabor's
household increased by one indentured servant. "Deed between William Tabor and Peter Indian. this indenture was made the 17 day July 1702 of the Parrish and County of Henrico on the one part,Peter Indian of the other part of the same
County and Parrish. Wittnesseth that the said Peter Indian for the value of 25

The Henrico County Court Order Book for March 1712, page 225 had this :
Whereby a Judgement was this day granted to John Wortham gentleman for 425 pounds of pork in the case against William Tabor and Bartholomew Stovall who was returned his security therefore on motion of Bartholomew Stovall ordered that an attachment be issued said Tabor estate and will be of value sufficient to satisfy & Pay said pork in the cast returnable to the next court."

Sometime between March and November 1712, William Tabor died leaving a wife and two small sons. William's death did not stop the court action, but brought on an even greater flurry of it.

In the November Court of 1712, page 260 we find: "Upon the petition of Hagar
Tabor widow of William Tabor deceased and her making oath according to law for
obtaining letters of administration on the land and estate in due form is
granted to her, Richard Grille, John Blackmon, entering therefore security for
the same and ordered that she present to the next court an inventory of the
deceased estate that John Hodge, John Hopkins, Amos Locke and John Clarke or
any 3 of them being first sworn by M. Abraham Solle do appraise the estate of
William Tabor deceased and make return thereof to the next court.

The inventory was postponed until early spring: From the January Court of 1713
records, page 266 was the following: The action of debt brought by John Howard
against Hager Tabor on the estate of William Tabor deceased is deferred by the
consent of the plaintiff. From the February court 1713 records, page 269 was
"The action of debt brought by John Stewart against Hagar Tabor administrix of
the estate of William Tabor deceased default neither party appearing."

A copy of page 251, Henrico County March court 1713 reads. "In Obediance to an
order of the court dated November 2nd 1712 to appraise the estate of William
Tabor deceased we the subscribed met at the plantation of the said Tabor and

For April court 1713 on page 229 was found " The attachmt grantee Bartholomew

305, action between Richard Grille Plaintiff and Hagar Tabor defendant on the
estate of Wm Tabor deceased the plaintiff not having filed their declaration in
time on the defendants motion he is nonsuit and ordered to pay damages with
costs according to law."

Bartholomew Stovall, in his will dated 14 January 1718 and probated 1 May\
1721 Gave to Hagar Tabor then to her two small sons some land in Henrico\
County.

Note: Stovall as well as Tabor researchers believe Hagar was the daughter of
Bartholomew by his first wife, but no proof of the first marriage or this birth
can be found. Bartholomew Stovall, born 24 Aug 1665 in England, arrived
indentured on 7 Jul 1684 on the "BOOTH "under Capt. Peter Pagan. Nothing is
known of Bartholomew's actions between 1684 and his recorded marriage to Anne Burton on 8 Aug 1693 in Henrico County, Virginia.

Notes: From Douglas Earl Tabor's FTW from Joe Tabor's FTW:

William Tabor son of William and Hagar (Stovall) Tabor born 1700.

William Tabor (776) had married Rachel Womack and started their family in the
newly formed Goochland County, then by 1745 they had moved south to the greater Lunenburg County.

Records show William Tabor was deeded 200 acres on the Roanoke River by John Wilkins on the 1 Oct 1745. The

1750 tithe list taken by Willam Howard shows " William Tabor and John Taber" together when John Tabor sold 200 acres on the north side of the Roanoke River to Robert Wade on 3 Jul 1753, " Rachel Tabor relict of William Tabor deceased, released her dower right to this land. From then on , Rachel Tabor and her children are mentioned in tandem in the records.

It seems that the Tabors then embraced the Quaker form of life. On 7 Aug 1754 in Lunenburg County we found, Deed of gift of Rachel Tabor lists children as infants ( under age 21 ) From the Oct 1757 court of the newly created Mecklenburg County was recorded that Hezekiah Tabor a tiltable\\ to be added to a list of tiltable for the year. ( See Elliott's "Early Settlers of Mecklenburg County Virginia, Volume (2). From a 31 Mar 1760 return (P. 509 " Cumberland " by Thomas Anderson, Richard Palmer and Thomas Carlton we found " Rachel Tabor " and William Taber orphans Listed between Bullock, Robert Easter, Thomas Hawkins orphans and Robert Munford near Butchers Creek. " Riah Taber was listed next to Volentine Mullins.

From research in William A. Yates possession, we know the names of children born to William and Rachel Tabor

Hezekiah Tabor
John Tabor
William Tabor
Zachariah (Riah) Tabor
Elizabeth Tabor
Judith Tabor
Mary Tabor
Susannah Tabor
