Biography*This Salathiel Simpson would have to have been either Leah and Hancock Simpson's brother or their uncle, for her to have been an heir named in Rev. Soldiers accounts. However, due the fact that Salathiel Simpson witnessed a will and settled an estate in the 1750's, he would have had to have been born circa 1720-30, so he must have been their uncle, unless that was another Salathiel Simpson, bringing the total to 3.

Four years later Vessells bought 125 acres north of it (from A147) from Spencer and Comfort Drummond. In 1803 William Vessells left to his wife Egnatia the small room in my dwelling house and the small chamber above and a privilege of passing from the one to the other through the house; to his son Walter he left the rest of the house and his 225 acre plantation. In 1837 Walter Wessells (wife Polly Boston) left to his son Henry (L.) the western part of his land where my dwelling house now stands. In 1883 Henry L. left to his nephew John H.S. Wessells, who died intestate in 1936; a son Henry L. was in residence, although the estate had not been divided late in 1937, when the dwelling (shown in Whitelaw) burned to the ground (Whitelaw, p. 1270). In 1772 William Wessells, who owned adjacent land from A149, bought 125 acres of A147 (near Hallwood) from Spencer Drummond II and his wife Comfort (Whitelaw, p. 1261).

Land bounty warrant*3 May 1820He was granted a warrant for bounty land on 3 May 1820 at Accomack Co, VA. Nehemiah Walker’s bounty land warrant contains a statement dated 3 May 1820 which indicates that William Rolly made oath that he well knows Severn East to be the son of Sabrough East who was the aunt of Nehemiah Walker and believes that he is now his only heir. A note indicates that Walker enlisted in Capt. Thomas Snead’s company of the 9th Virginia Regiment at the beginning of the year 1776. This statement is partly illegible but indicates that Nehemiah joined the American Army at Princeton which was under the command of General Washington and suggests that he may have died from a wound received at the battle of Germantown, but the entry is very smudged.3 
Rev War heirs named*27 March 1832Nehemiah's heirs were named on 27 March 1832 at Accomack Co, VA. Nottingham shows that Southy W. East, Severn East and Mary Bloxom, wife of Elijah Bloxom, are the only heirs at law of Southy East and Nehemiah Walker dec'd, who were in the Army of the Rev. from Virginia. Victor S. Dunn found that Southy’s heirs received a military certificate for his service. A note dated 27 May 1831 indicates he was allowed land for three years’ service as a seaman in the Virginia State Navy. A statement dated 25 June 1832 indicates that William East, Asia East, Richard East, Sarah East and Nehemiah East children and devisees of South East deceased formerly a soldier in the Revolutionary War are dead and that each died intestate, unmarried and without issue and that Severn East, Southy East and Mary Bloxom, wife of Elijah Bloxom are the only heirs at law and devisees of said Southy East now living with said Severn, Southy and Mary as the only heirs of the deceased children and also of the widow of Southy [not named] who also died intestate. Immediately below this is a statement indicating that on 29 June 1832, the Accomack County court certified that Nehemiah Walker formerly a solder in the Revolutionary War died intestate and that no will of the said Nehemiah Walker was ever proven or offered for probate.1,4
