Thomas Cheatham I, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Thomas Cheatham I might describe his life as follows.

I was born about 1645 according to testimony I made in 1680, 1694, and 1720, likely in England, and came to the New World at the expense of Martin Elam. 
I paid 200 pounds of tobacco in 1681 to record a marriage license, but the name of my bride is unknown.  Since I owned some books, I must have been a reader.
Elam sold me 300 acres on Proctors Creek next to Henry Hatcher, Robert Hancock, and Francis Cater for 2,000 pounds of tobacco in 1691, and I paid 265 pounds to the trustees of the town of Henrico for half-acre lot No. 2 in 1692.  In 1704 I still owned my 300-acre plantation that sits about where Highway 288 meets Interstate 95 south of Richmond. 
I served on a coroner’s jury in 1679 when Thomas Adkins fell off Mrs. Skerme’s horse and died, and in 1681 when Walter Sher drowned.  I was a member of the grand jury that indicted William Ligon and Martin Elam for getting drunk and quarreling in April 1684, and was empaneled again in June 1684. 
I was 75 but “in health of body and perfect mind and memory” when I made my will 2 May 1720. I gave all my land to eldest son Thomas, my clothes to Jonathon, books to Marmaduke and Benjamin, and a pair of gloves each to Mary and Susanna. Mary Herbert, my servant was to serve out her employment agreement with my daughter Tabitha to whom I also gave my horse Norman I would have been 81 when the court recorded my will 1 August 1726.

In 1677 Thomas witnessed a deed of gift from William Harris and Mary, his wife, to Thomas Wells, Mary’s father.  He witnessed two powers of attorney for William Epes 20 Feb. 1681/2,  and in 1684 he witnessed a dead conveying land from Thomas Jones, his wife, Martha Jones, and his mother Mary Skerme to Repps Jones When Mary Skerme wrote her will in 1707, Thomas Cheatham Sr. was among the witnesses.
