John Price III, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, John Price III might describe his life as follows.

The son and grandson of men named John Price, I married Jane Pew and we were residing Martin’s Brandon Parish, Charles City County, in 1694 when I sold 800 acres I received from my grandfather John Wall.  By August of the next year we had settled in Henrico County on 70 acres on the north side of the James between Bailey Run and Four Mile Creek, near Jane’s father, that I bought for the price of 3,000 pounds of tobacco and a steer. 
I evidently acquired a neighboring 50 acres because on 31 August 1710 I gave the whole 120 acres and my “Negro slave Robin” to our son Pugh Price, who would take possession of after Jane and I died.  Consequently the will I made a few months later distributed only livestock and various personal possessions to our two daughters and three sons. I was dead by June 1711.
