1(). Journey, Catherine - Note the items that argue for Catherine being closely related to the Lunenburg Crews:
- The will of Catherine Journey was witnessed by Richard and Ann Crews, even though Catherine Journey lived in central Lunenburg Co, whereas the Crews were in northern Lunenburg Co. In otherwords, they were not next door neighbors, and it would have taken an effort to witness this will.
- Her inventory and appraisement was done by Richard Crews, Peter Crews, and James Hamlett. (As per the Crews website, Peter Crews is suspected of being related, by marriage, to the Hamlett family)
- her son John, in 1775, was a grantor of John Crews' half of the Crews brothers 1748 Lunenburg Co patent. But there was no public record of him having any claim to this land. In otherwords, John Journey seems to have had a non-public, family-based claim to the land.
- She was a Baptist.
- Catherine, a poor person, bought a book at the estate sale of Samuel Baker in 1753 in Lunenburg County (as did Sarah Pettypool). Because Catherine was a poor woman, this buying of a book seems very significant and strongly suggests to me that she was related to Samuel Baker. Also, like Catherine, Samuel's sons Leonard and Elijah were Baptist ministers (source: Virginia Baptist Ministers vol IV by William S. Simpson, Jr) at a time when Baptists were uncommon in Virginia. Samuel Baker is easily traced in VA like this: Westmoreland Co -> Richmond Co -> Orange Co -> Brunswick Co -> Lunenburg Co. Voila! I think we having Catherine's smoking gun! But - in that there was a Will Petepoole (Pettypool) who was a grand juror in Charles City Co, VA, in 1694, and in that the Journey and Pettypool families are multilinked, I would think that there is an a Charles City Co connection for the Journey, Pettypool, Baker, and Crews families that I have not yet been able to find.

My guess is that Catherine Journey was an older sister of Richard and John Crews.
1(). Journey, Catherine 1729 - Richmond Co, witnessed a deed Richmond Co Deed Book 8 p. 522. March 10, 1729/30 from John Garner of Hanover Parish in King George Co, planter, to Joshua Singleton of North Farnham Parish, Richmond Co, for 2000 pounds of tobacco, 60 acres in North Farnham Parish near the northwest branches of Toteskey Creek, which land was left to Jeen Banger, the daughter of John Bangar, given to her by her grandfather.
Signed by John Garner.
Witnesses were Nathaniel Hilton, Thomas (I his mark) Payn, Catran (T her mark) Gorny.

Some thoughts:
Why did she sign with a T? Did her maiden name start with a T? Also, the Catherine of the 1774 will signed with a +. Two different Catherines?

If Hilton and Payn were residents of Richmond Co, then it is more likely that Catherine was living in Richmond Co in 1729. But, Thomas Payn is found in 1 King Geo Co deed, 1721-1735; in that time period, in KG deeds, no Journey, Gorney, or Crews. Nathaniel Hilton is a mystery - I cannot find him, although a Nathaniel Hilton, about a generation younger, is said to have been born in King and Queen County to George Hilton, later of Goochland Co. It may be that George Hilton was a brother of Nathaniel Hilton. Joshua Singleton's son Joshua bought land in Lunenburg Co, but, unfortunately, it was not on Juniper Creek, so was probably not the land Catherine Journey was living on. Also, there were Hiltons in the earliest Lunenburg Co tax lists.

If this is our Catherine, she would have been a widow for 45 years, which seems unusual. Are we telescoping more than 1 generation with the same name?

Jaffress of Amelia Co, for 105, 240 acres bounded by Dry Creek, John Roe, Nicholas Christopher, being part of 480 acres patented to Richard Crew and John Crews in 1749. Signed by John (X) Journey, John Smith, and Paulina Smith.

The transfer of the land in question goes like this:
John Crews -> James Cole (1757) -> Josiah Gayke (1763) -> William Hunley (1766) -> John Smith (1770) -> John and Perlina Smith and John Journey -> Thomas Jaffress (1775). Why was John Journey made part of the 1775 deed. which implies that John Journey inherited the land from a male ancestor (specifically John Crews), a female ancestor, or his wife. If the last, that would be consistent with John Journey's wife being a Crews, and perhaps the daughter of John Crews.

13(). Petty Poole, Elizabeth 1762 - grantor Lunenburg Deed Book 9, p. 188. Dec 15, 1762 from Peter Petty Pool and Elisabeth, his wife, to Anthony Fullilove, for 70 , 100 acres on the branches of Hurricane Creek, being part of 290 acres patented to Thomas Nance on July 27, 1753, and bounded by Williams, Jonson's old path.

Elizabeth relinquished dower.
Recorded Jul 14, 1763.

[It is based on this deed that it is assumed that this is the Elizabeth Petty Poole who is mentioned in Catherine Journey's will, and that Catherine's daughter married Peter Petty Poole.]
13(). Petty Poole, Elizabeth 1774 - named in Catherine Journey's will
13(h). Petty Poole, Peter - Elizabeth Petty Poole, the daughter of Catherine Journey, seems to have been the wife of Peter Petty Poole, as per several Lunenburg Co deeds naming Peter Petty Poole and wife, Elizabeth. I have corresponded with a man who says that Peter Petty Poole was born 1727 in Prince George Co. The 1727 birth date is in the IGI. The Petty Pooles are on the Lunenburg tax rolls as early as 1749, when Peter was only 22, so I would guess that the marriage of Elizabeth and Peter took place in Lunenburg County. If Peter was b. 1727, then wife Elizabeth was b. ca 1730, which might make Catherine's birth date closer to 1700 than 1690.
