      NOTES FROM THE ISLE OF WIGHT COUNTY RECORDS. Pg.83
      By Mr. R. S. Thomas, Smithfield, Va.
      To the Editor of the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography:
      When Philip A. Bruce was here last Fall he gave me a reference to the two following depositions which contain some matters I never heard of before :
      "The Deposition of John Goodrich of Isle of Wight county aged eighty eight, or thereabouts sworn and examined saith that Indian Cooper about 60 years ago gave a parcel of land for a Gleab in Ons- queak Bay where Mary Dickson now livith, and her father, William Phillips, lived on this land seve'all years by lease from the vestry. Before which time Mr. Oiserand Mr. Dunsean, ministers, lived on the said land as belonging to the Church (or as Glebe land) that Indian Cooper gave, & further saith not." (Signum)
      John I. Goodrich
