June 22, 1785 in Spotsylvania Co, VA. She was the daughter of Thomas and Mary (ROBINSON) MAGEE.
mother (Mary ROBINSON) was a sister to Michael's father, Michael ROBINSON, Jr., thus making this
Mary cousins. Confusing - especially since the names of man and wife for three consecutive
generations were the same.
Michael ROBINSON may have married second wife on Apr 3, 1838 - Mary PHILLIPS, b. Feb 22, 1808 in
I have no other information re Mary PHILLIPS except a grave marker in Mt. Zion Church
cemetery, near Hallsville
and Murry in Boone Co, MO., for "Mary O Robinson, wife of M. Robinson, who died 10/20/1878 at the
age of 70 years,
7 months, 28 days". Please contact me if you have info or know of resources to prove (or
disprove) this relationship and

I'm researching a BUCHANAN line that has been found in the Livingston, Spotsylvania, Virginia
1880 census spelled as
BUCHANNON. (Census' spellings before and after 1880 spelled their name BUCHANAN.)
Head of the family is W.S. (William S.)....51 years old, born in VA
Ernest, son ........29 years old
Wife is Amanda M. (nee STEUART).......51 years old, born in VA (perhaps a couple years older)
Children, all born in VA, are.....
Laura T, daughter...27 years old
Marion, Son........ 17 years old
William W., Son........ 12 years old
Braudie, Son........15 years old
Braxton, Son........9 years old
I'm directly related to Braxton BUCHANAN and found a relative of William W. BUCHANAN on the net.
Any information on the other children would be so appreciated.
In an 1860 census, William S. BUCHANAN is 29 with wife and children, but also present is
age 69. But it is possible the elder William was born in 1780-1790, with a brother John M (wife
Lucy, son Charles)
living in Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania co. Anyone with information on this line of BUCHANANs and
their lineage, in
Spotsylvania Co, please contact me.

I am interested in slave related records and information for slaves in
the family of William JOHNSTON m. Ann "Nan" Marie CHEW.
My ancestors were slaves in the family of William H. Johnston m.
Margaret HUTCHINSON of Bourbon Co., KY -- and they removed to Boone Co.,
MO in the early 1800s with William's parents: Capt. William H. Johnston
and Rachel SPEARS. Rachel's father was Jacob Spears. The Capt.'s
parents were: Robert Bruce Johnston m. Peggy McCLANAHAN. Peggy's
parents were Thomas C. McClanahan and Martha STROTHER. Thomas left
several slaves to his children grandchildren upon his death as did
Jacob Spears to his daughter and grandson William H. Johnston Jr.
Robert's father was Robert Johnston Sr., who was twice married -- once
to Ann COOK and then to Lucy OVERTON. Robert's parents were: William
Johnston and Ann Chew. I have also followed the lines of their other
children and see that there were many slave transactions via land deed
When William Johnston Jr., died in 1830 in Boone Co., MO -- his slaves
were bought by his widow's brother Mr. James S. Hutchinson -- and the
slaves were sold to Margaret Johnston's new husband Nathaniel LEONARD
and she received revisionary interest in the slaves. Nathaniel Leonard
and James Hutchinson were the founders of a very famous shorthorn cattle
farm in Bunceton, MO called Ravenswood. James Hutchinson married Martha
V. Tutt and the TUTTS also owned my ancestors and have Culpepper and
Farquier Co., ties....
If you have wills, probate, land deed records that you can share with
slave related information please let me know. I also have about 3-5
wills and final settlement records I need from the Spotsylannia
courthouse if anyone is able to retrieve those for me.. I will pay for
copies & gas. If you know a special collection etc., that would include
family bible records of slave data etc., I would be most interested.

I am looking for my ancestors. If there is anyone with any information on the BLONDEL / BLONDELL,
DUBOIS or HOOMES families please let me know. Any information will be cherished and appreciated,
not matter how trivial it may seem.
