    3. Susan -   Look under the name of Childress. There was a Susanna who married a Childress,Jr and they lived somewhere around the Willis River and the Willis mountain.  Just a guess based on an archived document (pdf) written by Dennstedt that I found on Google.  Because it was archived, it kept disappearing on me. I found that if I saved it to word, I could search it easily.

I wondered how the Trent family connected to my Cary family. My family line is from Buckingham County..a burnt county but family has researched and proven that our Priscila Cary was indeed a child of Henry Cary, even though she wasn't mentioned in his will. She married Benjamin Harrison whose family was Rust from Westmoreland and also. In a William and Mary Quarterly it mentioned their marriage, and said he was of the Rust family and she of the Miles Cary family. I have lost that source, but I am sure I can find it again. Anyway, my Word family married into the Cary family, both from Buckingham County. Aunt Fannie named her some of her children Nelson and Page. In another post on here, I saw a Captain Nelson had mulatto children and some Native American children. Spurlock was one of the names, and oddly enough I did have one Spurlock match. Nelson must be some kin to my Cary family. If you have the information, please let me know. Thanks so much for your post....from the future of 2015.
