      ==============

      When Court was held on 26 May 1778 in Fauquier County, it was ordered that SARAH ANN SHUMATE, late widow of Peter Cornwell, deceased, receive her dower in the land and slaves, and also a child's part of the personal estate left by PETER CORNWELL. JOHN CORNWELL and SIMON CORNWELL, sons of Peter, objected by Andrew Buchanan their attorney. But the court overruled the objection. (Fauquier County Minute Book (1773-1780), p. 321)

      The next year, on 24 May 1779 in Fauquier County Court, we find this entry: "John CORNWELL, Daniel SHUMATE and Simon CORNWELL came into Court and (produced bond) in the sums following...John CORNWELL 500 pounds, Daniel SHUMATE and Simon CORNWELL two hundred and fifty pounds each...to be void on condition the said John CORNWELL be of good behaviour towards all citizens of the said Commonwealth for twelve months." (Fauquier County Minute Book *1773-1780, p. 380).
