Judy - I know somewhere you wrote that John Dowell (m) Mary Major had received 1,000 acres of land granted by King George III. Jeffersons' also received 1,000 acres but had to pay for it.
The land info I have states that John purchased or was given about 400 acres (1738) and, within 10-20 years had around 1,000 acres. I specifically looked for the info you stated while down in Salt Lake as I'm starting to wonder if there are two John Dowell's wondering around the Albarmarle area at the same time. The specific area I'm searching is the Stoney Point, Proffit, Priddy Creek area. I found nothing on this 1,000 acres you indicate. Can you give me more info? Thanks much.
