From Some Descendants of John Counts of Glade Hollow book, page 145 - Settled near Carterton, Russell Co, VA.
"They owned several tracts of land on Clinch river. Both were members of the Castlewood Baptist Church. In July 1827, she was received into fellowship of the church by letter from Reeds Valley; in Oct 1835 he joined by baptism. In August 1837, James was chosen by the church as one of its delegates to the Washington District Assoc. to be held at the Deep Spring Meeting House in Lee County. On Jul 2, 1872, his will was probated: "..First I give and bequeath to my beloved son James M. Counts and his heirs my house and louts around the house including the corn crib stables and orchard and ten acres extra for taking care of me and his mother. I also give him a certain boundary of my land lying in the south west corner of it ... beginning at a poplar near the spring next widow Dickenson's corner of my land thence running north with the mill road to the foot of Cedar Hill.. And the balance of my land I give to my beloved sons John, David and Noah, to be equally divided... the balance of my loose property I give to my beloved daughters Catherine, Margaret, Susannah and Elizabeth... James and 'Evey' are buried on their homeplace."
