      Note - the land referenced below that was sold to Jonathan Richardson is the very same land referenced above as being owned by the "Heirs of Merryman Britt". It would lead to the speculation that Nancy Freeman, William R. Britt, Joseph Britt and Zachariah Britt were children of Merryman Britt. In the 1820 Census, Merryman Britt lists 1F born between 1794-1804 and 2M as being born between 1810-1820. Later census records show Nancy Freeman as being born around 1802 and William R. Britt c1815, Joseph Britt 1818, and Zachariah Britt c1814. The problem with this speculation is that Nancy Freeman's maiden name has been identified as Deaton by some of her descendants and the census records only lists 2 sons born between 1810-1820 rather than three. Further research will need to be done to prove connection.
