. WILLIAM 1 CASH was born Abt. 1653 in Scotland, probably Strathmiglow, Fife, and died Abt. 1708 in Westmoreland Co. Va..  He married ELIZABETH (SKINNER?)

 

William Cash who died in 1708, Westmoreland Co. Va. is the progenitor of the Cash line under discussion here.  A British tax record in 1677 lists William Cash as "seated" in Washington Parish, Westmoreland Co. Va.  He left a will, written 16 February 1708/7, and recorded in Westmoreland Co, 25 August 1708, naming his children: William, Thomas, John, James, Howard, Joseph, Peter, and a daughter, Anise Cash.  His wife, Elizabeth was named as executrix and guardian of his children, William, Thomas, Anish, until they became of age. Therefore it is believed all the other children were older than these three whose ages were given in the will.  Peter Skinner was named as executor, and John Skinner a witness. The following will was abstracted from microfilm by the compiler of this work.
