In Chancery: School Board of Brentsville, District No. 1
LVA Index No. 1910-004
To Honorable J. B. T. Thornton, Judge of the Circuit Court of Prince William, Virginia.
Your petitioner, the SCHOOL BOARD OF BRENTSVILLE DISTRICT NUMBER ONE OF THE COUNTY OF PRINCE WILLIAM would respectfully ask leave of Your Honor to make sale of the Old Nokesville School property, lying at the Nokesville-Greenwich Road near Nokesville, and adjoining Herring, Flickinger and containing one half acre, having been conveyed certain Trustees for said District by Abraham Early by deed of July 2nd, 1883, recorded in D. B. 34 page 256, and also the Hazelwood School property, lying below Aden on the Harrison Ford Road, and containing one half acre, and having been conveyed to the said District by H. H. Love, by deed of June 3rd, 1889, and recorded in D. B. 38 page 604.
Your said petitioners would state that neither of said Schools are now being used, by reason of their condition and owing to the fact that it became necessary to build new school houses and secure more land as required by the statutes in such cases made and provided. Your petitioners, therefore, pray for leave to sell the two tracts of real estate aforesaid, and to expend the money towards paying for the new buildings erected in their stead, and that Your Honor will cause to be entered such orders as may be necessary and proper to effect the purpose aforesaid, and it will ever pray, etc.—
School Board of Brentsville District, Number One, of Prince William County
