p. 254-256. Adms. bond rec. 21 May 1734. Ann Dooling, Admx, Tobias Ingram, and John Coffey were in court concerning the will of Robert Dooling, deceased.
In Ann's will, proved 18 Dec. 1744 at St. Anne's Parish, Essex Co., VA, she mentions her daughter, Annister Coffee
and her two sons by Robert, William Duling and Thomas Duling. Her other Coffey children had probably already received their shares from their father's estate when they came of age.
