Edward Barnes will Dec 15, 1760. Probated March Court 1762/
Wife and executrix, Sarah, all residue of estate, during her widowhood.
Sons, Nathan, William, Jacob and Abraham, daughters, Mourning
Fiveash, Charity Sims, Mary Sims, Elizabeth Leigh, Sarah Amason,
Patience Barnes, Elizabeth Barnes, 1,000 acre plantation on Chowan
River whereon she lives, revision to grandson, Jacob Barnes.
Granddaughters, Barbery Wiggins, Freeeby Wiggins, grandson,
Michael Barnes, tract of land lying on Chawan River, joining plantation
his mother lives on called Myery Mash. Wit: James Barfield, Eliza
Barfield, and Thomas Edmundson.
Most researchers list Mourning and Fiveash as 2 daughters. I think that
Mourning was married to Fiveash as there were Fiveash people in the
area. I would like to see an exact transcript of the will. If this extraction

is correct, he lists married daughters first and then unmarried daughters.
