(pat.kinzie@gmail.com) on I am helping a lady become a member of NSDAR through Hannah Montague, the child of Peter Montague. NSDAR is not accepting the Montague genealogy book and we have looked everywhere for a Will for Peter or his wife Elizabeth Henderson, to no avail. She was born (according to Montague genealogy) abt 1775-7 in Spotsylvania or Orange Co, VA, probably near Fredericksburg and m. 25 Oct 1801 in Orange Co to Richmond Grady. The book says her mother (Elizabeth Henderson Grady) died in her home abt 1824 in Fredericksburg. Hannah probably died before her husband moved to Ohio around 1840. Do you have any resources or could you point me to a historical or genealogical society that might have some evidence to prove that Hannah is the daughter of Peter and Elizabeth? Thank you.

I am a descendant of Randolph Bernard Tacy, who married Paulina Jane Glass (b. 1806, d. 1859) in Fluvanna County 31 Aug 1826. They had 10 children. Randolph (b. 1787 d. 9 Jun 1865) claimed to have been born in France, which could have been port of New Orleans, then part of France. The family later moved to Pocahontas County, WV. Very little information on the parents of either. Can anyone provide some assistance from your research? Appreciate your help for sure. Thanks.

My wife’s family is descended from George W. Wells, who was a dentist living in Madison County in 1864. He married Lucy M. Jeffries in Culpeper in 1861. George Wells purchased a house in Culpeper in December of 1861, and sold it in 1862.  He probably moved to Madison, then later on to Weakley County, Tennessee about 1868. I am trying to figure out his parents’ names, if he attended UVA, and where he was born. Can you give advice on where to look in the area to find out any of this information? We will be in the area for a week in October, and would like to go to all the possible sources to dig for the info. Thx, Steve Parker.

  2. Good afternoon!

    I am seeking African American church membership and baptismal records in Albemarle County, Virginia from 1865-1900. In particular, I am focused on the Stony Point area of Rivanna, Albemarle County, Virginia and the Tyree family. Any leads appreciated as I am working on a research plan for a client.

  3. I’m trying to find a copy of Vol. 1, no. 1, of the Central Virginia Heritage journal for the article “Albemarle – Louisa Patriarch (Samuel Dalton born before 1700, died about 1805).” Does the CVGA have a copy of the article that can be photocopied, for which I will gladly pay?

  4. Dear CVGA Community:
    Using previously unexplored Hatch and Rhoades family lines in Orange and Louisa Counties, I have obtained membership in “The General Society of Mayflower Descendants”. This opens up membership opportunity to others in our region who may also be related, but had no idea of their Pilgrim roots. The Orange County gateway ancestor is Henry Hatch (b.1805 New York – d.1876 Orange County). His wife was Mary C. Gardner (b.1819 Louisa County – d.1882 Orange County). Their daughter, Ann E. Hatch (1834-?) married John Rhoades, Jr. (1827-1896) both of Orange County.
