Thanks for that information, Jean. I am working on the theory that Mary Jarvis may have been the wife of Alexander Whitehall and after he died in 1795, she married a Tillet, perhaps one of the older brothers, as a bit later, she was listed as appling for a license for an Ordinary. I wouldn't think that she would be a business woman if she, still, had a husband.
If Thomas left a Will, did he name his wife? I suppose the Will may be on the Currituck GenWeb site.
