I am a retired/disabled U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel who lives in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Almost my entire life I was satisfied that nobody in my family could tell me our ancestry. I'm now no longer satisfied with that answer, and I'm trying to build a knowledge base that can be passed to current and future generations. If I can also find some real people to whom we're related -- well, that would be great. Thanks for reading.
Mr. & Mrs. Maberry Dear Glen, I remember both Mr. & Mrs. Maberry from back in the 70's and 80's. He ran a sawmill and did business with my uncles who ran Lee Brother's Mill over in Mechanicsville, MD. My father was the caretaker for De La Brooke Manor, Robert Brooke's other plantation in St. Mary's. The Mayberry's would come over and visit on ocassion and tour the grounds and the old Manor House. I loved hearing them tell about Brooke Place. I had never been there but they always told us to come over and visit sometime. I wish we had of. Where is Mr. Maberry burried and is there an obit for him as well.
Barton Lowe Hi Glen, we share the same 5x Great Grandparents! I don't know what that makes us, so I'll just say you're a cousin! My line is, Barton had Bennet... Bennet had Francis... Francis had Ida... Ida married Milton Morgan and had Lester... Lester had Lester Jr, Lester Jr had my Mom and then me. Whew. How are you related to Barton?
