Mary Place


She was already a landowner with cattle when she and Thomas married.

Aug 11, 1655 Francis Place conveyed a tract of land formerly in Isle of Wight Co, VA, containing 300 acres patented by him 9/7/1654, lying on the North side of the "freshes" of the Rappahannock River about ten miles above Nazumum Town, and certain cattle by deed of gift to "My daughter Mary Place when she arrives at 18 years," if she dies without heirs, then "to daughter Margaret Place, my youngest daughter."

Her birth date has been recorded twice in LDS files, in 1638 and 1648.

From the Richmond Co, VA, Order Book: Mary Powell, widow of Thomas, died about middle of December, 1710.
