that if they would deliver $100 worth of iron ware at retail market price before February 15 last past, he would give up their bond of $100.  Foulk and Seaman raised an objection to the title for the land and asked Shockley to take back the land and make provisions for repaying the money advanced. Shockley agreed to take back the land provided they would purchase from him a 170 plus acre tract of land, to which they knew he owned a clear title, a few miles from the first tract at $4 per acre.  He proposed that he would allow the money already paid and the bond already executed as part payment on the second tract and when the second tract was surveyed, the balance would be paid in earthen ware at wholesale price and delivered as aforesaid.  He said he would accept their bond conditioned on payment of one half on March 15, 1805 and the other half to be paid on March 15, 1806.  he engaged County Surveyor Samuel Hanway and surveyed the land which contained 184 acres.  He said Foulk and Seaman agreed to the conditions, but before the survey could be completed they commenced a suit against him to recover the value of the first tract.  After the survey was completed, he “provided a bond signed and endorsed to Foulk and Seaman whereby he bound himself to make a good and sufficient conveyance with a general warranty to them at any time after they should pay him the last mentioned payments” due in 1805 and 1806.  Shockley asked the court to summons Foulk and Seaman and inquire of them if they did or did not agree to the above set out conditions.  July 1804 term of court, dismissed by the plaintiff.

Werninger as a store and had the red house adjoining and Barbara was lodged in the red house.  While Barbara was with Horton, Gertrude Horton and Jacob Foulk were married and lived for some time in the red house, but paid no rent.  Catherine Horton said she took care of Barbara and hired a black woman to wash her clothes and Horton paid for it.  She said Foulk had nothing to do with the slave and after their marriage, sometimes Gertrude would pay attention to her as she had done before.  Catherine Evans attended as midwife and sometime after, Sarah came to the house when Horton was away and inquired if Horton had paid Mrs. Evans…Foulk was married the day before the rains in the fall of 1803, a little before Barbara was delivered and she never heard Foulk say anything about charging Sarah until Horton went down the river and then he came to her and asked if Sarah had settled for keeping Barbara.  She told him she did not know.  Foulk said if she would be a witness for him, he would give her half of what he recovered.  She told Foulk he better not sue for she know Horton and Sarah had dealings and it was probably Horton had been paid.  She heard no more of the matter until she was summoned as a witness for Foulk.  She said she attended and from her testimony, Foulk lost his suit.  When Horton returned and from their conversation she believed that Sarah had paid Horton for keeping the slave which was worth about $10 exclusive of the fee to the midwife.  She estimated that Barbara had been with her about two weeks before her daughter was married to Foulk and the slave was delivered about seven days after the marriage.  She said Barbara was fed sometimes by Foulk, but she never ate a meal without giving something to Barbara…  Bill dismissed and judgement for the defendant and abated as to Alexander.

[This record is from Michael Jones, August 30, 2007.  He writes: According to later censuses, Elisabeth Foulk (the daughter) was born 1808/9.  Elisabeth (Eliza) Foulk married Isaac Jones 15 Mar 1829 in Brooke County.  See the following censuses: 1850 Wells, Jefferson, Ohio: Isaac Jones; 1870 Wheeling, Ohio, West Virginia: Eliza Jones; The Jones family is missing from the 1860 census.  From what I understand, they should be in Martinsville (Martins Ferry) at that time.  Eliza (Foulk) Jones, from what I can tell, moved from Brooke County across the river to Brilliant, OH (then called Lagrange) around 1837.  Henry Foulk (her brother) was next door.  The Joneses then moved to near Smithfield, OH by 1850 and Martins Ferry by 1854.  I don't know what happened to most of the children: Elisabeth was widowed by 1870 and lived in Wheeling with her children Henry, John and Lizzie.  They all lived out the remainder of their lives in Wheeling, WV.]
