The Gateway of the Scotch-Irish to the Appalachian MountainsWhile attempting to determine whether William Davis had a son Moses, only one page was found of an intestate record that listed no heirs. Everyone did not leave a last will and testament, and an inventory of the estate, sale, and subsequent annual returns were usually placed on record by the administrator. The lack of a will and extensive estate records leave the genealogist with one choice, that is, to search the deed records for " gift deeds" to the children. Such deeds are viable proof of relationships. Although there is one will book that survives in Tazewell County, fortunately, some early deeds survived. The first settlement in the area occurred during the spring of 1771 when Thomas and John Witten settled at Crab Orchard. Thereafter, this southwestern area of Virginia area was slowly populated as farmland by Scotch-Irish immigrants. The region did not become the county of Tazewell until 1799 when the land was taken from portions of Wythe and Russell Counties. Some call the region " the Gateway to the Appalachian Mountains."
