 Stealey vs. Waggoner--O. S. 192; N. S. 68--In 1772 John Gillihan
 made a settlement in now County of Wythe and sold to Henry Waggoner,
 who on 6th February, 1775, obtained a survey under the Loyal Company
 for 476 acres and then sold to Jacob Hetrick, who sold to orator, Martin
 Stealey, before 12th September, 1782, and on that date Martin obtained a
 certificate from the Commissioners. In 1798, by some mistake, the grant
 issued to Henry Waggoner, who is now dead, leaving heirs and

 Catherine, Barbara, Margaret, Susannah Waggoner, Henry, Lavinia, William,
