m WILIS IS MASQR FAMILY. Iped for The Critic. j ien George Mason, of Gunston, died )2 he left large estates in Virginia and land besides other tracts in Kenf and the "western country," or When he made his will in 1773, Ibrej years before the Revolution, he divided the landed property of which he was then possessed between his five sons, giving to his four daughters portions in money only, as was the custom of the time, and to each he gave also a number of slaves. All of these sons and daughters grew up and married, and most of them have descendants living at the present day. This land, inherited, some of it, from three generations of ancestors, beginning with the cavalier officer who first came over to the colony, has almost all of it gone out of the family. "Guuston HaU" was sold some years ago. the family, of course, retaining the "God's acre," in which the patriot and many of his name are buried. When George Mison, of 1876, became of age, the law of primogeniture prevailed in the...
