I have had the benefit of receiving the research done by several generations of the greater Carrington/Hutcheson/Lyon/Venable families & am using that source, pictures & the internet to try to leave an electronic semblance of the persons who have gone before us before I too pass on.
Anne Mayo Carrington Hello Jim. I was wondering, in your research of the children of Anne Mayo Carrington, did you ever run across a child she supposedly had named Rachel Mary Burrell 1747-1815? Some say that Anne had this child by Joseph Burrell. I can't see where this fits in at all. I was wondering if you had heard this, or if you might be able to explain where this is coming from? A person who is a DNA match to me, through ancestry.com, lists their line as Rachel Mary Burrell with the mother of Anne Mayo and the rest of my line up. Just doesn't add up for me... -Cathy
Mary Chiles Hi, I keep hitting brick walls in my research of Mary. According to DAR Richard married Mary in 1768, but no location. I'm not certain this date is right. I also am not certain who her father is. Do you have any idea who is Elizabeth's father? I haven't researched Mary recently, but I'll start researching Mary and Elizabeth again. I'll also let you know if I find out anything.
Samuel Anderson Hutchison Jim, I was just wondering if you have come across a Samuel Anderson Hutchison (b. about 1836) in any of your research. I am doing a family tree for a friend for Daughters of American Revolution and I can't get past him on the tree. I know it is a long shot, but I thought I'd ask. Also, if you have any info on my ancestor, Richard Hutcheson that I don't have that you could share, I'd appreciate it... Thanks~
RE: Venable Cemetery D-53 I was able to get to the Venable and met with landowner. It is very overgrown with thick vines and dead trees on the ground. He has assured me he will get rid of the vines and the deadwood. I was able to dig around and find four fieldstone grave markers. He believes there is one more marked tombstone. I was able to locate enough of the rock fence to determine the actual size of the cemetery. After seeing this I suspect there are many more graves.
RE: James Freeman smith Hi Jim, glad to be able to pass on the memorial. You asked about Martha Smith Brownfield. That info that is on her memorial came from an Ancestry family tree so it is really just a jumping off place for more research. Cashie
