CHRISTMAS, DUKE, GRAVES, WOODSON, YANCEY -
I am trying to find information on my (?) great-grandfather HICKS R. WOODSON. According to a birth certificate of one of my great-uncles, dated August 14, 1985, Baltimore, MD, Hicks R. Woodson named as the father, was a waiter and was born in Virginia. My great-grandmother was LOUISA CHRISTMAS, a daughter of CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS CHRISTMAS and ELIZA CHRISTMAS. Christopher Columbus Christmas was a son of LEWIS YANCEY CHRISTMAS of Warrenton, NC. I can trace this line back to England and Russia with links to the Dukes of NC, the Graves, the Yanceys, etc. NOTE: Lewis Yancey Christmas was Caucasian, however, my great-great-grandmother, "Jinnie" was one of his slaves with whom he had a family. I appreciate any help you could lend. Please contact me if you have any questions. Again, many thanks.

JEWELL, RICHARDSON, RICHESON -
Reesden (also spelled "Risden") RICHARDSON (also spelled as RICHESON) married Sarah "Sally" JEWELL on Nov. 26, 1818. They had 7 children (4 boys: Noah, Alexander, Jewell (Juel), & Powell; and 3 girls: Sarah Jane, Elizabeth, & Jemima - the last child born in 1831). I've been trying to find a line on this family prior to Reesden (or Risden), but so far I've come up blank. There is no mention of Reesden in the 1810 Census of Montgomery Co., VA. Family oral history has it that Risden and "his brothers" moved into Montgomery County from down around Roanoke/Bedford, VA. So far this has been the end of the line for me. Anybody having anything on Risden (Reesden) RICHARDSON would be a welcome sight! There were also a Jacob and a Soveron "RICHESON" (RICHARDSON) listed along with "Risden" in the 1820 Census - not sure if there was a connection, and as I said this has been the end of the line for me. Thanks for any information.

Any information wanted for Ambrose Davenport. He opened tavern in 1772 at Tower Hill, property of Capt. Henry Harrison in Sussex Co.,Va. In 1777 Ambrose opened store on Waller St., Williamsburg. 1779 he took over Wetherburn's Tavern, Williamsburg. In 1882 he and wife Mary sold property in Williamsburg to Augustine Davis who married Martha Davenport. In 1787 he is charged for tax James City County for himself and Joseph Davenport. Could this Ambrose be any relation to the Ambrose R. Davenport who joined the army at Richmond, under Capt. Ballard Smith, in 1792?? Or could this man be Ambrose, born 1771, the son of Mary Hutchins Blake, god parents; John Edwards, Ambrose and Mary Davenport. Ambrose R. Davenport ended up in MI., stationed at Mackinac Island in 1796. He said he was a schoolmate of Wm. Henry Harrison, but not at Hampton-Sidney College.

He was of Scotch Irish descent, born c. 1775. She (b. c 1780) was of German descent, and probably related to the Cyphers who settled near Wytheville, and later moved to Buchannan Co Abner disappeared c. 1840...family history has him having a fight with Eve and "going back to the old country).

Cora died when my grandmother was a small child and Peter became an alcoholic and died soon after. The information above was told to my grandmother by her brothers, Brad and Bob and may not be entirely valid; however she did know her aunt who was always referred to by my mother as "Great-Aunt Gerdy Musselwhite".

BANDY, BERTRAM, BUTRAM, BUTRUM, BUTTRAM -
I am seeking information on Pleasant BUTRUM (possibly BUTTRAM, BUTRAM, or BERTRAM) said to have been from Lee Co.,VA. He was born September, 1812 according to information in a family Bible and I know he died Feb .18, 1885. He is buried in the Underwood Cemetary in LaFayette, TN in Macon Co. According to the local historical society, he was the one to donate the land for the cemetary and was also the first one to be buried there. I am also searching for info on Richard Bandy, born 1720 in Liverpool,England and fought in the Revolutionary War for Virginia. I once viewed some info on him a LDS Research room but have since lost it. I remember that some Bandy relative had published a book on the family which included him.
