Bedford County Chancery Court Index 1822-008

Transcribed by Nel Hatcher

Eunice Hatcher vs Charles Saunders & wife 1820 August Court

To the worshipful Court of Bedford County in Chancery sitting & humbly complaining sheweth unto your worships your oratrix Eunice Hatcher. That her father Richard Hatcher departed this life intestate on the 18th Day of April 1814, leaving a widow Judith Hatcher and Ward Hatcher, Demy Hatcher, Judith Hatcher and your oratrix, his Children and heirs that one hundred and one acres of Land lying upon Craddock creek in Bedford County were assigned to the said widow for her Dower and that all the other lands whereof the said Richard was possessed have been sold or disposed of and that his representatives are entitled by descent from him to another Third except the 101 acres aforesd. That Judith Hatcher departed this life on the 4th Day of April 1819 and the heirs and distributors of Richard Hatcher then living were Elizabeth Hatcher, widow and relict of Ward Hatcher and daughter of Demy Hatcher, Lucy Saunders and Charles Saunders her husband, Joanna Hale and John Hale her husband, Eunice Wright and Ambrose Wright her husband, & Richard and Eli Hatcher, which said Lucy, Joanna, Eunice, Richard and Eli, were the children and heirs of Ward Hatcher, Dec?d and all of whom reside beyond the limits of this commonwealth in parts to your oratrix unknown Except Ambrose Wright & Eunice his wife & Richard & Eli are Infants and under the age of 21 years & Celia Doss and Azariah Doss her husband which said Celia was also a daughter of Demy Hatcher Dec'd. Archibald Nichols who married Judith Hatcher since Dec'd leaving Daniel Nichols Kittura intermarried with Presley Binder, Byar, Lucy, Bartlett, Judith and Marthy her children and heirs, all of whom reside in foreign parts to your oratrix unknown and Lucy Bartlet and Martha are infants under the age of twenty one years. That the Land aforesd is not of the value of $300 to the distributive thereof each heir and your oratrix is advised that the same may be sold and the money divided, But that many of the parties concurred as is herein before Set forth being Infants and not residents this cannot legally be done without the interposition of a Court of Equity where ------- of this sort under such circumstances are peculiarly cognizable to this end therefore may it please the Court to cause Charles Saunders and Lucy his wife John Hale and Joanna his wife Ambrose Wright and Eunice his wife, Richard & Eli Hatcher, Azariah Doss and Celia his wife, Elizabeth widow of Ward Hatcher, Daniel Nichols, Presley Binder and Kittura his wife, Byar, Lucy Bartlet Judith and Martha Nichols, and Archibald Nichols their father to be made defendants to this Bill and ----------- & ------- and --- to ------ to the matters herein contained to assign to the Infant defenders a guardian or guardians for that purpose, the land to be sold and ------- distributed according to the rights & Interests of the parties and each other & further ------ to her extended as her [last two lines illegible as is the signature]

Note: After a thorough review of the records, it appears Eunice erred in stating Ward Hatcher's wife was Elizabeth, daughter of Deme, and that his son, Richard, was a minor.

Deme was the sister of Ward and her daughter, Elizabeth, married Ward's son, Richard. Richard's tombstone also shows he was born 1794 and hardly a minor in 1820.

Given Bedford Co tax lists, it is possible that this Archibald is "Jr" and son of Archibald, son of John Nichols SR. However we also need to take a closer look at Bazdel Nichols' family in Bedford, same time frame. Bazdel also had a son named Archibald.

In 1791 there are 2 Archibald Nichols showing in Bedford Co tax list. One is listed as "Jr". This continues until 1795 when there is only one. Picks back up the 2 1796-1803. Jr appears to be this one:

1814/4/14, Archibald Nichols from Richard Hatcher, 50 lbs, 125A Hails’s line, pres George W. Saunders Jr, Jesse Nichols, John Hudson, John Holligan, Simon Hudson, Daniel Nichols. Bedford Co VA db 14, 140. So wouldn't that make him grandson of John Nichols Sr.? Also this: 1817/6/21, Nichols, Archibald to John Ashwell, 252A adj Julius Sanders, Joseph Miles, James Burgess & Hannah Doss, pt of a tract belonging to Richard Hatcher dec’d, no pres, no wife. Bedford Co VA db 15, 211

1817/10/1, Nichols, Archibald of Bedford to Edmund Hudson, 129A adj Lewis Wingfield, Elisha Burnett & c, Elisha Nichols line, no wife. Bedford Co VA db 15, 251

1817, Archibald Nichols from Elisha Burnett, 28A adj Wingfield Bedford Co VA db 15, 254
