Hi everybody! Just trying to get this list going again. I don't have any ancestors that I know of in Fredricksburg, but I am a passionate Virginia researcher. If you want to manage your subscription on the new updated RootsWeb Mailing Lists, you will need to re-register your account.

Hello folks, and welcome back to RootsWeb's newly upgraded list system. If you are receiving this post it is because you are still a subscriber to this list, even though things have been pretty quiet due to a number of issues lately. The lists are back now, and I believe you will like the improvements that have been made. The most obvious improvement is a new RootsWeb login system, which you will find at the following link: http://home.rootsweb.ancestry.com/listindexes/setupmail Only one account per person is needed, and once you have created it you will be able to organize and manage all of your list subscriptions in one handy location. Like anything new there will be something of a learning curve in the beginning, but I really think you will like it for the new security and personalization features for your list subscriptions. And last but not least, please note my email address as List Owner immediately below this message and following my name. Also note the "List information" link below that, which will take you to the information page for this list, where you will find information to help you subscribe, unsubscribe, and some other things based on the current status of your new log in account. I welcome you back to the list, and look forward to working with you in the future tracking down our elusive ancestors. David E. Cann email@example.com List Owner of the Fredericksburg, Virginia mailing list on RootsWeb List information: https://lists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/postorius/lists/vacfredr.rootsweb.com/
Please DO NOT reply to this on the list I'm the Admin of this list, and I would like to ask for your help if I may. This pertains to digest subscribers ONLY, so folks subscribed in list mode please completely disregard it. The current default format on this list for digest posts is called "MIME," which means you will receive each digest as a single post usually once a day with each individual post for that day appearing as an attachment. This is the one exception to what you may have heard about no attachments on RW lists, but these are quite safe to open. To read or reply to one of the attached posts, you simply double-click it to open it, after which you can reply to it if you choose to. Generally, replying to it will require little or no editing or trimming as was needed with previous digests here. I have recently become aware that reportedly A FEW service providers do not receive this type of digests very well, although the large majority of them do. If you are not able to double-click on an attachment and read it properly, then it is possible that your service provider may be one of the very few unable to receive and deliver them correctly. If so, please drop me a line OFF LIST AT MY ADMIN ADDRESS BELOW, and I will return your subscription to what is called "plain text" format as before. Likewise, if you are able to use these digests without difficulty but simply prefer the plain text format used before, then drop me a line OFF LIST using the same address below and ask me to return your digest to "plain text" format. As another option you may want to try list mode, and receive your list posts immediately as they come in rather than wait for your digest up to 24 hours later. If you are having no difficulty reading or using the current digests this way, then there is no need to reply or let me know. I try very hard to reply to all correspondence from subscribers, but sometimes replying to everyone is simply not always feasible. David E.

Just a quick not to introduce myself as the new List Admin. I adopted this list yesterday, so from this point on I will be the one monitoring your postings and keeping an eye on things from the background. I don't think you will see too much difference between my predecessors and I in the way I do things. I try to keep somewhere close to subject matter, "list netiquette," and other commonly used list guidelines and practices, so as long as things continue to run smoothly then you'll likely never see or hear from me on the list. Or, not until I reply to a list posting. If you have any questions about any issue regarding the list itself, please drop me a line at the Admin's address in my signature lines below, and you will also find it at the bottom of all list posts as well. I am looking forward to meeting and working with everyone, and sharing our mutual passion (or "obsession?") for genealogy in the coming weeks and months. If you write me at the address below you will ALWAYS receive a reply, most commonly within 24 hours or so, but please keep in mind that I am only a genealogist like yourself. I have simply agreed to monitor things here as a volunteer, but just like you I have a family and other responsibilities as well so please be patient with me if you do not get an immediate reply sometimes.

I am working on finding any descendents of Henry Walter Burnett. He was born in Fredericksburg on August 10, 1930. He was in the Korean War and was killed December 1, 1950. Trying to find any descendents for possible DNA match so they can positively identify his remains. Here is what I have: He listed Rebecca Grimes of Fredericksburg as his closest relative. After much research, Rebecca Grimes was not his mother. She was a lady that took him in after his mother died. His real mother was Myrtle Hamm born about 1915 in Spotsylvania County. She married Robert "Jabo" Burnett in 1930 in Fredericksburg. Robert was Henry's father. Myrtle Hamm Burnett died May 1940. Her obituary states that she was survived by a mother, a sister, and three aunts. Also states that she is buried in the Pratt Cemetery in Spotsylvania but I haven't been able to find a Pratt cemetery there. I believe Myrtle Hamm's mother was Sadie Hamm who was also born in Spotsylvania. Robert "Jabo" Burnett remarried and his wife's name was Nancy. I have a copy of Robert's obituary. If anyone can help with this, I would really appreciate it. We are hoping to run an article in the newspaper on Robert Henry Burnett but we need to find some of his relatives. He was African American. He never married and had no children. He joined the Army when he was 16. THANK YOU!!! Diane Ballman **************A Good Credit Score is 700 or Above.

Hello~ I am researching the whereabouts of a place known as Loluca, VA. It's listed as the birthplace on a World War 1 Registration Card of someone I am researching. It also shows him as being a "Laborer at Mine" He worked at the Old Dominion Sulpher Corp. in Garrisonville, VA. Any ideas??? Any comments are very much welcomed. Thanks, Marta Marta ************************************** See what's new at http://www.aol.com
Hi all, I have several websites on Virginia genealogy. Old Virginia Obituaries, 1790-1940: http://virginiaobits.homestead.com/ and Miscellaneous Virginia Genealogy: http://vagenealogy.homestead.com are two of them, there are also links on these sites to other pages of mineas well as other websites that may be helpful. I hope you find some information that is helpful to you. God bless, Beth firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi all, One of my websites with online information is: Virginia deaths 1897-1912: http://vagenealogy.homestead.com/vadths1897.html between 1897-June 13th of 1912 the state of Virginia did not keep any records of deaths. So I have been trying to find and post as many as I can to help people. Of course there are probably millions of deaths in those years I would think, but at least it is a start! Today I posted 30 more deaths on the site bringing the total so far to 3,500 This site is part of my Miscellaneous Virginia Genealogy website at: http://vagenealogy.homestead.com I hope you find ancestors on there somewhere. God bless, Beth email@example.com

First, my thanks for all the helps and my apology for whatever confusion I have created. I did not focus my questions sufficiently! I am interested at this point only in the years after Judah Levi was put ashore in Leedstown (now in Westmoreland County, Virginia) on January 27, 1772. At that time he was just about 12 years of age. We've been to Leedstown and have contemplated what it must have been like to be so far from home and pretty much alone. He did have his brother Elias, his uncle Henry on that voyage. Also being disembarked was a Rice Levi, about whom I have no information. Judah enlisted as a soldier about 1777. I have two questions: one general and one specific. The general question first: can anyone describe the normal process for a bonded arrival? Were they sold? Were they assigned homes in which to live and work? What was the period of service? The more specific question is simply: Is there any evidence of Judah Levi in this five year period? I am sending this to the Rootsweb sites for the counties between Leedstown and Fauquier County. Again, my regrets that I stated my question so poorly! Richard Batman Williamsburg, Virginia
Sorry! Seek any ideas about where a 12 years old Jew, Judah Levi, from London (along with a brother and an uncle) might have gone after being put off the ship Justitia at Leedstown on the Rappahannock River in what is now Westmoreland County in January 1772. In the Revolution he fought with Abraham Buford troops. In 1783, he married Mary Mcgraw in Fauquier County. He stayed in Fauquier County, until about 1800, having a number children. Abiut that time he moved to Maysville, Mason County, Kentucky, where he died in 1829. My question is about where and what type on service did he render between 1772 and his service in the Revolution? Thanks in advance!

PULLEN in Fredericksburg, VA c. 1815. Samuel M. Pullen b. c. 1815, Fredericksburg, VA. Sometime before 1835 he moved to Chester, Delaware Co.,PA. He m. Martha Marvel b. c. 1816 in Milton, Sussex Co.,DE in St. Paul s Episcopal Church in Chester, PA in 1835. Have no idea why either of them there. Have not found any Pullen or Marvel there before them. Believe Samuel M. Pullen is related to the early PULLENs in Spottsylvania Co.,VA in early 1800s. They are James, Thomas, Lindsay/Lindsey and Jesse, shown in Census 1810-1840. Samuel M. and Martha had ch: Susannah, William Dean, Theodore, Sarah, Samuel L., Mary E. and Martha J. Family of Samuel L. is later in Suffolk Co.,NY. They have Jesses in that line. William Dean stayed in Chester,PA. He m. Arabella Talley and they had 2 children, Kate and William Dean Jr. Suspect that they may descend from the early Henry Pullen (to Lancaster Co.,VA) b. 1660 who m. Mary Stott. Have not found the connection.
