William Smith, Son of Peter Smith of Westmoreland County, Virginia

William Smith’s will is found in Will Book A, page 478. It reads, in part:

“I William Smith, of County of Fairfax in Colony of Virginia… to wife use of negroes during her life. After her decease to be divided between three sons, Hancock, James and William and their heirs. Executrix: Wife, Letita Smith.”

On September 27, 1751, Letita Smith, executor, presented will for probate. Note that Hugh Thomas (of Bull Run) was a witness to this will, along with William Moon and James Turley.
