Third Generation


23. Agness ROBERTS was born about 1765 in Louisa Co, VA.94 I'm assuming that she's the oldest girl - she was married and on her own first. No other reason. She died before 1840 at the age of 75 in Fayette Co, OH.217 She died before the enumeration of the 1840 census where her husband appeared alone.

Agness ROBERTS and William ROWE were married on 15 January 1784 in Louisa Co, VA.218,219,220 Albemarle County, Virginia Marriages 1780-1853, Vol III, p 607:
Roberts, Aggy & William Rose 15 Jan 1784; min-Matthew Maury (rector, Fredericksville Parish), 15 Jan 1785 (Hudson's Register)

If this is really Agness Roberts and William Rowe, then:
She was born no later than 1763 because no one had to vouch for her -
Then why would she be mentioned in the will without reference to her married name?
