Birth*12 July 1911Elijah was born on 12 July 1911 at Bay View, Horntown, Acc Co, VA.1,2 
Anecdote*1930 He entered school at Horntown Elementary School and continued his education at Randolph Macon Military Academy, Front Royal, Virginia. He was a lieutenant in the ROTC program there when he was called home because of his mother's death in February 1930, and decided to remain home to farm with his brothers and father.1 
Marriage*20 February 1932He married Josephine Houston, daughter of William Harold Houston and Helen Runkle Besson, on 20 February 1932.1 
Will - Grfath's*1935Elijah was named in his grandfather's will in 1935. Elijah E. Hastings, Elijah Justice's maternal grandfather and namesake, died in 1935 and left him and his three brothers land in Wattsville (Acc Co Wills 23, p. 66). In 1938, the brothers sold timber from this property (Acc Co Deeds 154, p. 155) and bought a plot of land in Horntown (Acc Co Deeds 154, p. 260), on which Elijah Justice built and operated a general store. Several years later he rented a store building in New Church (the old Elmer Taylor home that is no longer standing) and managed both stores. The Horntown store was sold to Rosser A. Taylor by the Justice brothers in 1945 (Acc Co Deeds 178, p. 491). In April of 1942, Elijah Justice sought to enlist in the Army. He was turned down at the Virginia Recruiting Headquarters at Richmond because of a heart defect. However, he was drafted on 4 October of the same year and was trained as a paratrooper. He transferred to the regular army after a "bad fall" and was sent to southern England, where he was attached to a Station Hospital. He was there on D-Day, when his youngest brother, James E. Justice, was brought to the hospital with severe injuries received in the invasion of France. Elijah H. Justice was discharged from the U.S. Army on 29 November 1945 and returned home to live with his wife and son at her parent's home in Stockton, Maryland. He accepted a position with the Suburban Propane Gas Co., a position he held until 1954.. 
Land bought*1 June 1948Elijah bought land on 1 June 1948 at Wattsville, Acc Co, VA. It was on this date that Lige Justice bought his brother's share of part of the land at Wattsville that their grandfather Hastings had left them (Acc Co Deeds 194, p. 417). This was the western, triangular shaped section of the land, bordered on the northeast by route 175 from Oak Hall to Wattsville and on the south by route 704, connecting the same road to the road from Wattsville to Atlantic. He built the Dream Drive-In on the land. This business venture proved successful and he built a home in the nearby woods in 1953. In 1955, Lige Justice added a roller rink to the original Dream, which by then was no longer a drive-in, but housed a restaurant and a general store. The following year, a home for his son was built on the same land. On 8 July 1954, Elijah Justice bought 10 acres of land from Blanche Douglas, widow (Acc Co Deeds 215, p. 268). This tract was located behind the Dream, facing route 704 on the north. In 1958, he built a Drive-In Theater here.

Birth*18 May 1883William was born on 18 May 1883 at Accomack Co, VA. It is not entiely clear where he was born. As has been stated, his father bought the Sally Slocomb land near New Church in late December of 1883. The family could have been living there for several years before the land was purchased, and if so, the two youngest children were born there. William Roy Justice would have been about five years of age when he and his family moved to the farm in Wallops Neck near Wattsville. However, there is no actual evidence that the family ever lived on this land and family members recall being told that Roy Justice was born in Wallops Neck on what became his brother-in-law, William H. Hickman's land in 1893 (Acc Co Deeds 66, p. 429). This farm was north of the one his brothers bought in 1906 and on which his parents were living in 1910. A portion of this farm became the western boundary of the Chincoteague Causeway when it was built between 1919 and 1922. The entire farm was purchased by the Navy in 1942 and is now a part of NASA, Wallops Station..2 
Marriage*9 November 1904He married Mattie E. Hastings, daughter of Elijah E. Hastings and Melissa E. B. Collins, on 9 November 1904 at Worcester Co, MD. They were shown only as William R. Justice, age 21 and Mattie Hastings, age 18. No other information was given. It was the following winter, in 1905, that his father bought the Samuel J. Townsend farm at Horntown and William Roy Justice and his bride moved there. The 1910 census shows him, a farmer, head of household #234, with wife Mattie and four year old William Roy Justice, Jr., living on the road from Horntown to Public Landing..3 
Land bought*26 December 1908William bought land on 26 December 1908 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that he bought the 179 acre Townsend farm from his parents (Acc Co Deeds 91, p. 571). On 1 Mar 1910, he bought 1 acre, that included a house, from John H. Mariner and Savannah A. his wife of Sarasota, Florida for $400 (Acc Co Deeds 95, p. 221). This lot was bound on the northwest by the Public Landing road and on other sides by land he already owned. On Feb 6, 1912, he bought, from Benjamin W. Shields and Mary his wife, the 120 acres just south of the Townsend farm, for $6500 (Acc Co Deeds 98, p. 525). On 23 Oct 1917, he bought the 175 acre Dunton Land from William C. Bunting and Mary A. his wife, for $10,500 (Acc Co Deeds 112, p. 14). This purchase included an unspecified acreage of woods land, west of the Dunton Land, all of which adjoined his other lands on the south. In 1922, he bought 2¾ adjacent acres from Rosa Townsend (Acc Co Deeds 123, p. 284). William Roy Justice then owned nearly 500 acres, in one large farm on Chincoteague Bay. The Shields land included a large, old home overlooking the Bay, into which he moved his family. This farm is known locally as the Roy Justice farm to this day and is still owned by his descendants. Roy Justice made another major land purchase, when he bought 100 acres between the villages of Oak Hall and Wattsville on 2 April 1920, from John A. Fletcher (Acc Co Deeds 117, p. 598). He bought other, smaller plots in the Horntown and Wattsville areas through the 1920s, the 1930s, and into the 1940s.. 
Marriage2 March 1933He married Cecie Coleburn, daughter of Charles E. Coleburn and Mary J. Brown, on 2 March 1933 at Accomack Co, VA.1 
Death*29 May 1954William died on 29 May 1954 at age 71. His obituary (June 3,1954 issue of The Peninsula Enterprise) stated he was "born and raised around Horntown", but there is no record that his parents ever lived in or near Horntown. His obituary also called him a successful farmer and highly esteemed citizen, and stated that for a number of years he was one of the largest truck farmers in upper Accomack County. It said that for several years before his death he was in poor health and had turned his farms over to his sons. Family members say that he and his wife had moved from the farm, into the Elmer Coulbourne home when he retired. This was located on the south edge of Horntown, to the west of the road to Wattsville..2 
Burial*His body was interred at Wattsville Meth Ch Cem, Acc Co, VA.2
