By Jeannette Holland Austin
At the beginning of the Revolutionary War Valentine West had a small farm in Chesterfield County and died in 1776, four months before the crafting of the Declaration of Independence. His last will and testament only provided that some barrels of corn be given to his sisters. Another planteer, Creed Haskins, who had come to Chesterfield from Brunswick County was operating a plantation of some 390 acres of land, and died in the midst of the war (1781).
