|Patrick Hamrick||February 5, 1725/26|
Patrick, along with John Farguson, Henry Gallop, and Richard Elkins, or any three of them were appointed to appraise the estate of Patrick Maggee in King George County.(1)
Individuals appointed to appraise an estate were most often neighbors and long-time acquaintances of the deceased.(2) Patrick Hamrick probably first met Patrick Magee when they both had associations with William Hammock in the Totaskey Creek area, 25 years earlier. (REF: February 28, 1699/1700 A) Patrick Magee had obtained property in the Dogue Run area in 1712,(3) probably having migrated there a few years before that (about the same time as Patrick Hamrick).
