An indenture by the heirs of Jones Johnson includes Logan Johnson which indicates that William Logan Johnson went by his middle name. Robert and Fountain undoubtedly did not participate in the deed because they were minors. The name of Louisa Johnson who married William Wade was written Eliza throughout the document, by the recorder who copied the original deed for entry in the record book, excepting for her signature which was copied correctly as Louisa:

Preston Carr apparently did not sign the deed or his signature may have been left off the recorded copy inadvertently. A space for his signature appears, followed by a mark indicating his seal. Perhaps he did not sign it because he died between the preparation of the deed in 1845 and its signing and acknowledgment by Elizabeth Johnson Carr in 1849.,.

Before she married John Utley Wade in 1763, Alice Woodrum inherited 50 acres of land called "The Level" from her father John Woodrum by his will, which was dated 21 April 1760 and proved on 17 February 1761. (Goochland County Will Book 8, page 125.)
Somehow, perhaps through a mortgage, John Utley and Alice Woodrum Wade shared ownership of her inherited land, or at least part of it, with Bouth Napier. On 20 January 1779 John Utley Wade, his wife Alice and Bouth Napier, all of Goochland County, sold 40 and 1/4 acres to Miriam Pleasants of Powhatan County, Virginia, for 100 pounds current money. Known as The Level, the parcel of land was described as being part of a larger tract once possessed by John Woodrum and bequeathed by him to his daughter Alice in his will dated 17 February 1761. The piece of land adjoined Woodrum's spring and was on the old road next to lands of William Moore, Peter Walker and William Stamps. The three grantors signed the deed with marks. James Pleasants, John Cheadle and Thomas Royster witnessed the signing of John Utley Wade and Alice Wade. Bouth Napier signed in the presence of Turner Clerk, John Dowdy, William Sanders and Rene Napier. John Utley Wade and Alice Wade acknowledged the deed in Goochland Court on 21 June 1779: (Goochland County Deed Book 12, page 251.)

14 Aug 1793 (Mary?) Jones (no males listed); 2 horses; 6 cattle
09 Aug 1793 John Jones, Jr. 1 white male over 21; 1 horse
23 Aug 1794 John Jones 1 white male over 21; 1 horse; 7 cattle
These records suggest that John and Mary (Rentfro?) Jones had a son, John, Jr., who became 21 between 28 May 1790 and 12 June 1791; being therefore born about 1770. The tax lists also suggest that John Jones, Sr. died between 12 October 1792 and 14 August 1793.,.

At the June Court 1749 Nicholas Haile (Hayle) was appointed to take the list of titheables "from Goose Creek to the extent of the county upwards" which must have meant the westernmost part of the county. The list of tithes taken by Nicholas Haile for 1749 included:
William Cook 1
George Grifeth 1
David Grifeth 1
