John Price II, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, John Price II might describe his life as follows.

Not much for me to say. After my death, my wife, the daughter of John Wall, married John Rowen whose 1662 will gave to his brother Henry Rowen, “the bringing up of the two sons of the deceased John Price and the managing of their estates and that he will hereafter, when age of discretion shall be in them, to the utmost of his ability, teach or get them to be taught to write and read, in the meanwhile to bring them up in the fear of God. I do give and bequeath unto the said two orphans, Daniel and John Price, one feather bed, rug, bolster, and blanket, the bed being that which they lye on and the rug of a blue color.” 

John and Daniel Price sold the 150 acres that had belonged their grandfather to Benjamin Hatcher in 1677. 
When John and Jane Price sold 800 acres 26 Jan. 1693/4, the deed described the land as having belonged to John Wall, grandfather of John Price. 

John Wall
John’s father-in-law John Wall married Elizabeth Clay, the widow of John Clay, who was undoubtedly not the mother of his children. Wall, a long-time Clay neighbor, had 1,791 acres next to John Clay in Sept. 1629.  Wall died before 4 Feb. 1664/5, when his widow presented his will and by Feb. 1665/6, Charles City records mention John Tate “who married the relict of Capt. Jno. Wall.”
