fftE LAND PATENTS. A SERIES OF ABSTRACTS OF THE tIkANTS TO SETTLERS. [The genealogical and land patents articles will alternately appear. 1 I Number I.] From an early date the immigration of a person to Virginia, of whatsoever quality, color, or condition of servitude that person might be, gave a title to fifty acres of land. The immigration was proved by before a county court, which issued aiertificate of the fact. On the presenta"tton of this certificate to the secretary of the colony an order for a survey was granted, which was followed by thegrantof a patent, when the land was selected and the survey returned into the secretary's office. Copies of all patents were recorded in that office, and are now extant in an unbroken series of well preserved and indexed volumes volumes, beginning in 1623. These volumes are now in the custody of the Register of the Land in the State capitol, and, under proper regula tions, are accessable to the public at the office, where alone, of course, o...

A Correction.—The account of the descent of General Benjamin Harrison from Pocahontas, which was copied in your issue of December 23, 1888, is incorrect. It is true that Susan, daughter of Richard Randolph, of Curies, a descendant of Pocahontas, married Benjamin Harrison, of Beikeley, but this Benjamin Harrison was the b.other of President W. H. Har rison, and not his father as stated. Moreover, Mrs. Susan Randolph Harrison had no issue, the succeeding Harrisons of Berkeley being descendants of her hus band's second marriage with Anna Mercer. President William H. Harrison's mother was Elizabeth, daughter of Colonel William Bassett, of Eltham, New Kent, and bis wife,- Elizabeth Churchill, of Middlesex. Colonel Wil...
