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

I was born in Dinwiddie County, probably a grandson of Joshua Pritchett. Lucy and I were the parents of 5 or 6 sons and maybe some daughters, all born in Dinwiddie. I could share more about my family had the Yankees not burned the Dinwiddie courthouse.
We lived along Butterwood Creek until 1779 when we moved 20 miles to Brunswick County and bought about 400 acres on Waqua Creek to grow tobacco. Our plantation was on the Lunenburg County line next to Joseph Daniel
We became official residents of Lunenburg when David Thomas sold me about 200 acres there in 1787.  This tract, which was also on the line, may have been next to my other farm. In 1791 John Buckner sold me 200 neighboring acres for £60.  In 1800 Lunenburg taxed me on six horses and eight slaves more than 12 years of age. 
To provide for our sons, I sold John 200 acres in 1800 and 360 acres in 1804. Tracts went to Joshua in 1803 and Daniel in 1804. I evidently gave away most of my slaves, too.
I was 71 years old when Lucy died 18 March 1802. I joined her 20 April 1804. My estate included one slave boy named Tom, furniture, saddle, and the typical farm equipment and livestock. Some neighbors appraised my estate for £245.4.2. Since I left no will, the court appointed my son, John, the administrator.
