DATE: 12 November 2004
In a copy of old Bible pages (Shores- Tutwiler)Bible I find
a death date of Dec.1, 1830. I assume that he was a friend of Martin
Tutwiler or perhaps a relative of Susannah Bugg Shores. Is this the
Charles who married Judith Ford Christian?

for information on Benjamin F. Hudgins. There exists a bond between James
Boatwright and John Shepard to Silas Bryant and Benjamin Hudgins. This
Benjamin Hudgins is shown at the Virginia Historical Society records as
Benjamin F. Hudgins, b. 1831-1894. I believe it is possible that this
Benjamin Hudgins has been mis-identified and is possibly Benjamin Hudgens/Hudgins
b. 1808, d. 29 May 1879 at Flat Rock Estate, Cumberland County, Virginia.
Can someone check a census record for 1860 to see if a Benjamin F. Hudgins
was living in Fluvanna County during this time period. This would
eliminate my Benjamin Hudgins as possible candidate because he was living
in Buckingham County, near Boatwright Island.

I am doing research on my grandmother's family from Fluvanna county
and I found your name on the Fluvanna website. My grandmother, Fannie
Morris was the granddaughter of John I. and Susan Glass Drumheller.
Her mother was Myrtie Drumheller Seay Marion. According to the 1880
census which I obtained on the Mormon genealogy site, my
great-grandmother was 4 months old in 1880. I notice you have done
research on Glass. I wonder if the above Glass Drumheller is
related? According to the 1880, she was about 41 in 1880.Also, I
understand that my great-grandmother" first husband was a Seay. My
grandmother Fannie was her only child by Mr. Seay. She then married a
Marion. Jesse Franklin Marion whose parents was Fannie Melton Marion
and William B. Marion. He (Jesse Marion) was also born in Fluvanna
Cty in 1880. I tried to contact Diane Cassell who is doing research on
Shipp and Drumheller but the email bounced back. I hope this one
works. Any info you could give me would be helpful. I especially
would like to find out about the families before 1880, especially the
SURNAME: Carmichael / Dixie P.O.

I am looking for information about Shandy W. Holland,
born 1827 in Fluvanna County, VA. He first appears in the 1850 Fluvanna
County Census as a 22 year old, single man. His name appears in the 1850
Slave Schedule and the 1860 Fluvanna County Census and Slave Schedule.
He appears in the 1870 Fluvanna County Census as married to Martha, and
having children named Tristan (b. 1855), Archibald (b. 1860), John (b.
1868) and Anna (b. 1869). He dies between 1870 and 1880, as his
wife, Martha, is shown as a widow in the 1880 Green Springs, Louisa
I don't know who Shandy W. Holland's parents or sibling
were, but suspect, based on the 1810 and 1820 censuses, he is was the
son of either Richard Holland, John Holland, Major Holland or Shandy
Holland. I don't have access to Fluvanna County records and would like
to know if there are any birth, marriage, death, burial, probate or land
records that might provide information about Shandy W. Holland and
My husband is a descendent of Archibald Holland and Cora Bricker of
Indiana. Any information about the Hollands of Fluvanna County, VA,
would be greatly appreciated.
