I have subscribed to Ancestry.com for one month (ending 8 Mar) and am trying
to squeeze in as much research as I can for my half sister, whose mother comes
from the Durham line. I wanted to give you some information to add to your Durham
Family Database dated 2-20-2010. My half-sister's mother, Halcie May Edwards,
was the daughter of William M. Edwards and Ella Nora Durham.
STATS: Halcie May Edwards, b.2 Jun 1912, Albemarle County, VA; d. 27 Nov 1977,
(Newport News, VA?). She is listed on the US 1920 Census as 'Elsie May' (James
City County, Jamestown District, Virginia) and 1930 census (Warwick County, Fort
Eustis, VA) as 'Halcie.' You can add this info with their other children, Paul
M. and William K.
Halcie married my father, William Gordon Wright, and they had one daughter, Pamela
Ann Wright (my half-sister). Don't have dates, but they were divorced in the
40s. My mother (Edith Clara Smith) and dad started dating in '48-49 and were
married in Nov 1950.
Debra Carrithers (who I found on Ancestry.com) forwarded an old email to me that
mentions land sales between Durhams in Albemarle in the 1770-1800s. I found something
of interest about Albemarle county roads, 1725-1816, which mentions areas probably
named after some of the individuals mentioned in her email. The book can be found
