Marie,

   It has been a while, I hope this find you well abd enjoying the close of summer!  I just came across this and am eager to learn more if at all possible: Regarding the will of Isaiah Sollars of 1754-1757 Chesterfield Co., VA  and his estate in King & Queen Co., VA.  In all my years researching this is the very first time I came across. I would dearly love to get a copy of his will . . . he may very well be one of my long lost progenitors!  Bob Sollars  rcsollars@comcast.net

I did try and learn more about John Lee. That turned up nothing!   I’ll keep cracking the sites – King & Queen Co., VA is my next stop. Bob

from Robert C. Sollars

Marie.  They have this gentleman as Isaiah Sollars, but I am dubious about the spelling as you will note in the attached that the recorder made his e o and a a lot alike – also his L and S is hard to read.  The following material I received from Chesterfield Co., VA library – real interested in your thoughts.  

 

ITEM ONE:

530 -531                                     AUGUST COURT - 1754    Chesterfield County, Virginia

 

On the petition of John Lee who gave bond and made oath as required by law It is ordered that bontifirats (sic)be granted him for obtaining letters of administration for the Estate of Isaiah Sollars late deceased.

 

Ordered that Jacob Ashurst, Edmund Logwood, George R. Eurner and Henry Hatcher Jun,, or any three of them do appraise the Estate of Isaiah Sollars deceased in this county.

 

Ordered that John Campbell - John Berry - John Rain and William McCarty or any three of them do appraise the ESTATE OF Isaiah Sollars deceased which shall be found in the County of King & Queen and return an Inventory.

 

NOTE: The above three paragraphs are found beginning at the bottom of page 530 and top of page 531 of the records of  "August Court of 1754" in Chesterfield County, Virginia
