Subject: ROLL CALL - CARDWELLS in Cumberland Co/Charlotte Co., VA
Date: Sat, 6 Sep 97 16:37:51 -0700

Here are some notes from my research regarding my EPPERSON/WOOD family.
Thomas EPPERSON (son of Francis EPPERSON) married Martha CARDWELL (dtr of
John CARDWELL) in Charlotte Co., VA. I have found John CARDWELL and some
other CARDWELL's in Cumberland Co. I hope this helps someone. If anyone
has information on John CARDWELL's descendents or his siblings and parents,
I would like to share information. I have followed the notes with a Family
History file from Reunion on my CARDWELL information.
