I am looking for the will or any other records of Martin McGhee who died in Franklin County in 1851. It is my belief that he may have owned my ancestors who also took the last name McGhee after emancipation.

In my book ( Franklin County, VA Cemeteries ) I have a Martin McGhee who died on June 7, 1851, born on Dec 22, 1774. It also says husband of Sarah Heard. Can this be him?
If so, he is buried in Davis/Martin Cemetery,652. This is all is says and I think the 652 refers to the road the cemetery may be on or off of. If you call the Franklin County Circuit Clerk's office and ask for wills, they may be able to tell you if he had one . To order wills, it used to be 50 cents per page just a couple years ago. You will need the man's name and date of death.
