    Notes 
    • Southampton County, Virginia Court Order: Page 323, June 21, 1841
      On the Motion of Archibald P. Pond and wife. It is ordered that James Gray Guardian to the said wife who was Mary Harvell, settle his Guardian Account before Master Commissioner Cobb, who is directed to Examine, State and Settle the same and make a report thereof to court, with matters specially stated, deemed pertinent by himself or which he may be required to state.

      Sussex County, Virginia Deed Book U, Pages, 324-325 In Sussex County Court December Term 1847 POND'S Widow
      vs POND'S Administrator and others. To the Worshipful Court of Sussex County.
      In obedience to a decree directed to us by your honorable body at December Term 1847, we proceeded to the fulfillment of its requirements; finding that neither the land nor slaves of ARCHIBALD POND deceased could be equally divided among his children. We advertised the same for sale (after allotting to the widow Mrs. MARY ANN POND one third part of each) giving twenty days notice. The sale took place at Birdsong's Mill on the 20th of last month January. We thought it best to require 5 per cent to defer expenses attending the sale and done so. The gross amount for which the land and Negroes sold was twenty four hundred and fourteen 50/100 dollars. Expenses amounted to sixteen 29/100 dollars. Commissions on $300.00 at 5 per cent and on $2114.50 at 2 per cent making $57.29, paid for writing two Deeds and crying the said property $3.00, making in all $60.29, leaving cash in hand $60.43 which we paid to WILLIAM B. HARVELL Guardian of the infants of said ARCHIBALD POND. The balance due on Bonds at 12 months credit we have paid over to said WILLIAM B. HARVELL Guardian say $2146.64 and to Mrs. MARY ANN POND widow of said ARCHIBALD POND $147.14 and taken the receipts for same. In this we have departed from the decree by the advice of the Counsel (R. R. COLLIER Esq.) employed in the case and paid over to the widow, one fourth part both of the land and Negroes to which ALBERT POND deceased would have been entitled if he had lived. The decree directed to pay said widow MARY ANN POND one fourth part of the value of the slaves only. If this should not meet the approbation of your worships, it can be easily altered so as to conform to your order strictly. All which is respectfully submitted

      The year Archer died is not clear in the Bible, therefore 1846 was selected because that was the last year he paid County Tax.
