SURNAME:  Hawkins
DATE: 11 December 2004

QUERY:  Seeking a death date and place of burial in Fluvanna County for Martin V.B. Hawkins who was last shown living in the Fork Union area of the county. Martin Hawkins was alive as late as 1910 and was a Confederate veteran from Tennessee

SURNAME:  Woodson, Charles
DATE: 12 November 2004

QUERY:  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?

SURNAME:  Hudgins/Boatwright/Shepard/Bryant
DATE: 19 August 2004

QUERY:  Looking 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.

SURNAME: Drumheller/Seay/Glass/Marion/Morris
DATE: 2 April 2004

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 Drumhellers.

SURNAME: Holland
DATE: 4 February 2004

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 County Census.

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 Martha's ancestry.

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.
