May 11, 1998 (Laurence E. Dickerson)

I am looking for information on the family of James B. EUBANK. He seems to have lived in both King William and Caroline Counties. He was the son of James EUBANK and Lucy BUTLER, who were married in Caroline Co. on 11 January 1819. They had three other known children: Mary, Elizabeth and Isaac Lee. James B. EUBANK married a woman named Lizzie [I think her maiden name was RICHERSON]. They had at least five children: Isaac W., Roberta, Mary A., Lucy and Sarah. James EUBANK served in the Confederate army and was killed or mortally wounded at Fredericksburg. I am told his name is on the King William County monument. Following the war, Lizzie and three daughters moved to Florida. Any information on this family would be much appreciated. Does anyone know James' regiment?

I have a copy of a page from a book entitled CAVALIER AND PIONEERS VOL III. On page 92 there is a transaction dividing up 980 acres in Pamunkey Neck by William Stanard.

February 10, 1998 (Kevin McGehee)

I am trying to pin down as much as possible the physical locations of two landmarks referred to in documents pertaining to THOMAS MACKGEHEE (~1645-1724) and his first son, WILLIAM MCGEHEE (1675-1771), both of whom lived in King William County. First, ST. JOHN'S PARISH. Thomas' will reportedly states that he lived in St. John's Parish at the time, either he made out his will, or that it was probated. In either case, we're talking about 1724 or 1725. I've found that the modern St. John's (Episcopal) Church is located in West Point, but I want to know how far northward the parish would have extended on the dates given, and if possible the church's location at that time. Can anyone help? Next, GREAT ROCKY CREEK. In a land document in 1725, Thomas' son William received acreage on "Great Rocky Creek" in King William County. I have examined a good map trying to find such a waterway today, but either the name has since been changed, or perhaps land reclamation has drained it, or tidal erosion has drowned it. Does anyone have any info about this creek, its location and present name if any?

Jan. 3, 1862 married William HOFFMAN in Baltimore MD, d. May 22, 1915 (in Baltimore, MD) their child was Jacob LeRoy HOFFMAN. I will be glad to share all information I have.

February 3, 1998 (Kevin McGehee)

I'd be interested in any information anyone might have about William MACKGAHYE, a scottish immigrant to Virginia who is documented to have been present in King William County in 1653 and probably arrived in or about 1649. I do not know when he died and would much appreciate that information along with any known descendants. I know that one Scottish historian, Sheila McGregor, differs with MCGEHEE family tradition and suggessts that Thomas MACKGEHEE (1645-1724) may have been a son of William's father than of Patrick MACGREGOR, but I have reason to believe William may have had other descendants besides MCGEHEES.
