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 at:
