Submitted by: comphi@flash.net (Philip R. Shipp) Will of Elizabeth Key, widow of Martin Key (d. May 1757 in Louisa Co., VA) "Mrs. Elizabeth Key Sent for me the 19 of December 17(??). She told me that if she died that it was her desire that (??) take her Estate into my Possession to make myself safe (??). ...was Security for her Guardianship of several of her Childre(n) and also said it was her desire what was left after pay(ing)... ...Children of should be Divided between her three sons tha(t) was prentises and Wm. Except her Cloaths and She desired her Daughter Thomson might have. She also Desired that her Grandson Solomon Trower mite be in my Care till I could Contrive him to his Father. She further desired that her Grandson Solomon Trower Should be decently Cloathed when Sent to his father. Signed - Philip Burford" The known children of Martin and Elizabeth Key have been identified in other Louisa County records as: William Key, Jacob Key, Thomas Key, Luck Key, Elizabeth Key Thomson and an unknown female who married a Trower. Although the date that Elizabeth's will was dictated is missing, Philip Burford posted bond on 26 Jan 1762 to become administrator of Elizabeth Key's estate so her death definitely occurred before that. Also, the placement of this record in the original will book falls between records of wills proven on 29 Jul 1761 and 11 May 1762. I cannot say for sure but believe the will was dictated on 19 December 1761.
