Daniel Justis was born about 1765.
Daniel Justis had reference number 800. Middle name changed on 7/15/15 due to e-mail from Paul Justis who discovered error in source document. He attached a new source document titled "1856 Powhatan Death Register w-Wm M Justis.pdf". Document saved to file.
E-mail message received from Paul Justis on 7/12/15.
I recently went to Richmond, Virginia to do a little research.
On microfilm - I located the Powhatan county Death Register
with the entry for our William M. Justis
On a page for the year 1856
line 41 Wm. M. Justis white male died 10 April in Powhatan county,
of Asthma, age 76 parents Daniel & _____ Justis; born Lunenburg county,
married - reported by W.W. Justis - son
The report by the professional genealogist Hamlin or whatever his name
was that showed him as Daniel V was incorrect. The person that was
making entries into the death register made his & and V are similar, but
by looking back up the page at other white people whose parents were
known, you see that same symbol between the father and mother's names.
In this instance - it seems as though Wm W. Justis was not aware of his
grandmother's name since there is a blank underline there.
As I remember, there are two Daniel Justis in Lunenburg. One is the son
of Zachariah I believe. According to a suit brought by Daniel & Mary the
widow of Zachariah - it seems there were 4 children of Zachariah.
Thomas, Susan, William & Daniel. Zachariah was married twice, so I'm not
sure who is the mother of these children, but I suspect his first wife, Nancy
Matthews was the mother and Mary Garrett was his second wife/widow.
Susan married Francis Barnes and had Clinton M. Barnes
William - not sure his wife, but two daughters Virginia Ann & Elizabeth.
Susan & William are deceased at the time of the suit in 1859.
too sleepy, will close for now.
He resided in Lunenburg, Lunenburg, Virginia, United States, in 1810.1
