1799 - David Woodard, Heir of Quinny Braswell

In Colonial Law married women's property was always legally received in their husband's name.  Elizabeth Braswell was married to David Woodard, and was referred to as Elizabeth Woodard in her father's will.  See Samuel Braswell's 1794 Nash County will.  David Woodard was the legal heir of Quinny Braswell, in right of his wife, Elizabeth.
