Thank you for clarifying that message.
I am researching a man named Pleasant SUIT who is connected to Poythress
via his daughter's marriage to Atkinson.
But this family is also connected to Harrison-- so I had to inquire.
I don't recall ever hearing of anyone with the surname of
"Suit" so I
help about that.
Since B Treon's query mentioned having seen some message about "Suit P v.
Harrison" I just now did a search on that terminology, at the Poythress
Message Archives. Indeed 2 items popped up, due to Maynard having
a message that way on 16 Dec 2000 (shortening the Poythress surname with
just a "P" in his message caption), and due to Lou having responded to it
Both messages are referring to a lawsuit (not a person surnamed Suit).
initial part of Maynard's 16 Dec 2000 message text makes the lawsuit being
[The book, titled] "Another Secret Diary of William Byrd", as you have
previously mentioned, cites in a footnote on p. 176: 'In Charles City,
1741, there was a suit by Robert Poythress and Robert and Thomas Poythress
executors of Joshua Poythress vs. Benjamin Harrison (Va. Mag., XXIII, 32;
etc.'). The reference is incorrectly cited by the Byrd authors or it is a
misprint. It is volume XXXIII, not XXIII."
