Hugh Mercer, a friend of George Washington

Here is an interesting account of Hugh Mercer of Fredericksburg, Virginia. His last will and testament was probated in Jefferson County, Kentucky. He left his plantation to his wife, Isabella which he stated in the will that the plantation adjoining James Hunter is the one which he purchased from General George Washington. Pictured is the Hugh Mercer apothecary located on "Ferry Farm", the boyhood home of George Washington.  To view this old will, become a member of Kentucky Pioneers
