Description

Consists of three documents related to the purchase of lands for Patrick Henry's Leatherwood Plantation. In one document, dated November 27, 1778, Martin Key agrees to allow Patrick Henry to settle on land on Leatherwood Creek in Henry County, Virginia, which Henry purchased from Thomas Lomax, but was involved in a legal dispute. Another is a May 29, 1778, document signed by Thomas Lomax transferring 9,990 acres of land on Leatherwood Creek to Patrick Henry. The third is a complaint for the Court of Chancery case of Lomax v. Randolph concerning a tract of land, circa 1743 (filed April 3, 1783).
