From Lunenburg Deed Book 8, page 67-69. "27 Oct. 1763, Thomas Cuzzins & wife Fanny of Amelia county & Stephen Dance, merchant of Dinwiddie county to John Speed Jr. of Lunenburg co. 150 lbs, 384 acres; Lunenburg co. between Miles and Dockery's creeks. By patent John Dortch & came into possession of Charles Cuzzins deceased, of Amelia county, who by his will devised tract to said Thomas Cuzzins. witnesses Moses Potter, Holman Freeman, David Tucker. Signed Thomas Couzens, Fanny Couzens, Stephen Dance. recorded 10 May, 1764." end quote.
In 1763 this Stephen Dance was a grown man and an established merchant in Dinwiddie co. This Stephen may be the father of Rev. Matthew and the grandfather of the younger Stephen and Thomas and Matthew M. and maybe your Sarah. Who knows? When you see those blank underlines in the old will transcriptions, it generally means that either the first names were not given or they were unreadable. Maybe you can get the original full will of Rev. Matthew from the courthouse and get lucky reading the missing names. Good luck. Edwin
