Henry Cox is transferring land to Elizabeth Lewis.113 acres of land called Good Luck that contained 200 acres formerly owned by Thomas Houser, which land descended to Elizabeth Lewis and Mary Soaper (sic), wife of John Soaper (sic), joint heirs of Thomas Houser.
In a Deed of Gift we find Elizabeth Lewis making a gift of Battson's Vineyard to John Lewis Her Son, which was sold by my sister Mary Soper, wife of John Soper.
Mary Soper is the sister of Elizabeth Lewis and they are heirs of Thomas Houser. Mary and Elizabeth are daughters of Thomas Houser.
Sadly most internet searches link Mary Yate to John Soper. In most of these searches John and Mary Yate are linked because the researcher found someone else that said so, or thought they might be.
