Subject: Re: [LDR] I truly need help

The folks on LDR list are always helpful. If you have not had a response in a
decade, I'm thinking no one on this list knows your answer. If your subject
line had a surname such as Russell or Lewis, I, for one, probably never even
opened it. I presume most folks do as I, in that since time does not permit the
reading of everything in the mailbox, only the messages with an interesting
subject line are read. My mailbox is currently showing 1414 unread messages,
going back years.
I don't know if there is a list for Elizabeth City County, VA, but it might be
more practical to post on such a list since your ancestor died there. Or if you
haven't joined the GHOTES list, which deals almost exclusively with Accomack and
Northampton Counties, VA, that might be a more productive route. It seems to me
that recently a GHOTE posted the morphology of some Virginia counties and that
Elizabeth City was one that is now another county. I'm sure someone will
correct me if I have remembered incorrectly.
LDR covers lower Delmarva, as suggested in its title, but in actuality most of
the genealogy seems to be centered in old Somerset County (Worcester, Wicomico &
Somerset) with Dorchester, Sussex (DE) and ESVA offshoots. It just seems that
way and I'm sure not by deliberate design. At least that's my observation.

Subject: [LDR] I truly need help
Over the past 10 years, I have posted many times asking for help in finding a
specific person but have had no responses, so I am trying again. Robert Russell
b. about 1756, Accomack, VA; d. 1832 Elizabeth City Co., Va.; m. Margaret
"Peggy" Lewis, dau. of James Lewis and (Peggy Bonewell). After Robert Russell's
wife Peggy died, Robert married someone by the name of Tabitha which is proven
by his Will and several Land Deeds.
Robert and Tabitha are our direct ancestors. I have no problem with Robert
Russell's ancestors BUT I am looking for Tabitha's maiden name.
Please. If anyone knows anything about this Tabitha, would you please help me.
If you supply the name, I will do the research work and I don't copy from
I believe that only names, dates and places are the skeleton of a person. I
want to give them a life and make them live.
