Re: Slave descendants of the Cabell family

Re: Char McCargo Bah

The Carrington family from Charlotte, VA had a lot of dealings with the Cabell family. I believed that one of the Cabell women married a Carrington and she brought slaves into the family. My family was owned by the Carrington Family and the Carringtons were lawyers and Judges and they had large plantations in Charlotte and Halifax, Virginia. They kept very details records which are located at the Library of Virginia and at the Virginia Historical Society. My family surnames are:

Carrington
Banks
McPhail
Wyatt
Irving

I have not worked on the Carrington family for a long time but when I saw your e-mail all my research memories came back. - Char -

Yes! I spent two weeks just photographing many of the records, and diaries of the Cabell and Carrington families, at the Uiversity of Virginia, Charlottesville.

Although, when I was there, all of the records were just thrown losely in various folders. I've held in my hands, letters dating back to 1720, to the King of England. I litterally went through thousands of documents.

One of the original drafts of the "Constitution" and the "Declaration of Independence" were in the next room over. I did stop and take a look, of course.

On my second trip, they had encased them in plastic, under my suggestion, of course.

I had suggested that they issue partical masks and plastic gloves, because the fibers from these very old documents were getting everywhere. I kept sneezing, while photographing. But at least my DNA is now embedded in all of those old documents, for future scientists to examine.
