Mary Littlejohn, married William Withers:

Mary was one of four children born to Oliver and Marinleus Littlejohn. Oliver was the youngest son of John and Ann (Murray) Littlejohn of Fife Scottland. Oliver immigrated to the Colony of Virginia prior to 1682 where he lived until his death in 1703 or 1704.

Mary was married to Withers at the time of her fathers death, but a second marriage is listed to Francis Coffer.

Olivers will (Sept. 15, 1702, Stratford County Virginia) bequeathed to Mary Withers one young horse colt, one new pewter basin, One new pewter chamber pot. To grandson, John Withers he bequeathed one black mare branded on the near sholder with OL, one cow calf and her increase.

I find it strange that Mary born according to message in 1640. Could have been daughter of Oliver, who according to second message, was born in 1660. Futher, it is curious to me that a woman born in 1640,according to message could bare a son in 1860, again according to message. Some dates and or thoughts need to be reviewed.

I am also very interested in this Oliver Littlejohn family. I believe I am descended from Oliver Littlejohn through this daughter, Mary, who married William Withers. I descend through their son, James Withers. I would be interested in trading information. I did find this information about Oliver Littlejohn's will. I also connect to William Holt who signed as security for the will. Does anyone have a transcription of the entire will?--Cindy


Oliver Littlejohn left a will in Stafford County listing at least four children…Mary Withers, God daughter Mary Kemp, John Littlejohn---only have access to part of will.
Will proven…ordered to be recorded. A probate thereof is granted to Francis Cofer who intermarried Elizabeth Withers the daughter of of Oliver Littlejohn and Mavicillus…Ordered they enter into bond with security which accordingly did. Col. George Mason and WILLIAM HOLT became security and signed bond accordingly.
