Thanks everyone for the Massey info. I somehow managed to lose some things
on my computer, most of which consisted of sources I had cited like court and
tax records, birth records etc.

I'm descended from Warren through his son James Addison Massey.

Not sure if the question up for discussion on this is in Richard Massey, of
Patrick Co VA was the same that married Winney Chamblee. And, yes it was.

Here's an entry indicating Ancel Masey. There are many interesting entries
in Patrick Co records.

Ancil (Ansel) Massey b. 1803, m. 10 Sep 1827, in Patrick Co, Va, Sur. T.
Dehart, Min. Stephen Hubbard, to Elizabeth Via #1367, b. 1814. In 1850
census, the following children were in household: Frances, Oney, Mary,
Martha, Jane & Sarah A. Elizabeth: Marriage bond states Elizabeth is
daughter of William Via.

Oct Court 1817 Patrick Co VA
Patrick Co., Virginia - October Court 1817:
JAMES ATWOOD. Ack. Oct. Court - Wits: Obadiah Massey, Ancel Massey, William
Massey, via Warren Massey. (D. B. 5, p. 323). Also, the same signers, as
above, to Packwood, Ack. in Oct. Court 1817. (D. B. 5, p. 159).

Apparently the children of this Richard were:
Warren who m. Susanna Bartlett dau of James Bartlet and Temperance Whitlock,
Sally who m. Alvin Moore Lewis son of Ed & Nancy Lewis; John who m. Nancy
Barlet same parents as Susanna Bartlet; Obediah who m. Nancy Bryant; Willy
who m. James Martin; Charles who m. Priscilla Hollinsworth; James Jubal who
m. Elizabeth Gravitt Philphott; and Ansel Massey who m. Elizabeith Via.

Some early deeds, not sure if exhaustive, tax records unknown:

Do not have reliable grandchild list to check for naming patterns.

Winny Chamblee Massey apparently died Aft 1838, Patrick Co VA; Richard d.
1836-38 same county, marr ca 1781-2. During early 1780's Robert Chamblee was
taking out land in Wake Co NC. The only lost child of Robert Chamblee
is Sarah Chamblee who marr a Hinton per his will. Sarah marr roughly the same
time, might look for Hintons in Patrick Co. No trail of Sarah has ever been
found or reported from researching Hinton descendents (not that anyone on
this list cares, just throwing it in in case someone dives further into

There are quite a few Richard Massey researchers who have probably culled
all the censuses including grandchildren.
