Abstracts of Lewis County, WV, Deed Books A, B * C (1817-1827) abstracted by Becky Brogie, Ch arles Gilchrist, Joy Gilchrist, Diane Miller, and Mo Taylor, p. 64: From LC Deed Book B, p. 4 79 - "Minter Bailey and wife Nancy to Samuel Stalnacker, both of Lewis Co. VA 12 Aug 1823 dee d for 15 acres for $60. On south side of Hackers Creek, joining said Stalnacker land he now l ives on and Baileys survey said Bailey now lives on. (*side note - Delivered to Samuel D. Bro wn, per order of Samuel Stalnacker, his grandfather, 3 Oct 1834) s/Minter (his X mark) Bailey , Nancy (her X mark) Bailey Wit: Wm. Sims, Wm. Powers." Then today, in LC Deed Book E on pag es 409-411, I found three deeds. 1) Samuel Stalnaker to Wm. P. Stalnaker: "This Indenture 7t h day of October . . . One thousand Eight hundred and Thirty four. . . . the said Samuel Stal nacker & Susannah his wife for and inconsideration of the sum of four hundred and seventy si x dollars to them in hand paid. . . certain tract of land . . . Lewis County. . . . situate o n both sides of Hackers Creek being a part of the tract that the said Samuel Stalnacker now l ives and adjoining lands of William Powers & the heirs of Minter Bailey and bounded . . . (me ntions Charles Stalnacker's corner) . . . containing sixty-eight acres. . . s/ Samuel (hi s X mark) Stalnaker. . . There is a survey map of this tract of land. 2) Samuel Stalnake r to Charles Stalnaker: "This Indenture 7th day of October . . . One thousand Eight hundred a nd Thirty four. . . . the said Samuel Stalnacker & Susannah his wife for and inconsideratio n of the sum of four hundred and seventy six dollars to them in hand paid. . . certain trac t of land . . . Lewis County. . . . situate on Hackers Creek and adjoining ladnd of the heir s of Minter Bailey and bounded. . . . (mentions Original Survey). . . containing sixty-eigh t acres. . . s/ Samuel (his X mark) Stalnaker. . ." There is also a survey map of this trac t with the deed. Note that the last two almost equal the 117 acres plus 15 acres (132 acres) that Samuel and Susannah acquired from her father and from Minter Bailey. 3) Samuel Stalnake r Sr. to Samuel Stalnaker Jr.: "This Indenture 7th day of October . . . One thousand Eight hu ndred and Thirty four. . . . the said Samuel Stalnacker & Susannah his wife for and inconside ration of the sum of three Hundred Dollars . . . all that tract or parcel of land whereof the y became seized by the Death of Andrew Stalnacker their son in the year 1812 lying and bein g in the County of Lewis and Harrison and State aforesaid on McKinney's run a branch of Hacke rs Creek . . . (mentions Thomas Battens survey, line of Thomas McWhorter Dec'ed) . . . contai ning fifty four acres. . . No survey map with this deed. All three of these deeds in D B E have a statement along the side that they were "Delvd to Grantee 14th day of June 1836"-- ---------- Nancy Jackson had earlier asked me if Samuel had a will. I found a note in my fil es that he did. He wrote it and dated it 14 October 1817. I didn't get to the courthouse toda y so I don't know the date of probate and I don't have record in my files of those whom he me ntioned in the will. Samuel, according to his tombstone which Daril and I found in the old St alnaker burying ground on Samuel's former land (now owned by C.D. Cole), Samuel died in Octob er 1834. (No day is given.) I suspect that these three deeds together with the on from Deed B ook B which was executed on October 4 happened because Samuel was dying. I also suspect, bu t cannot yet prove, that the "Delvd" notation on each of the last three signified the end o f the probate of Samuel's will. This is all conjecture.
