Old John Sledd in His Lifetime…

An 1 March 1822 deposition from a Bedford County, Virginia, court case refers to “Old John Sledd” doing something “in his Lifetime.” This likely means that “Old John Sledd” was deceased as of the date of the deposition.

That may be the best estimate of a death date possible.
