Elizabeth Willis

"Dacanta" just recently transferred some 2000 memorials at Western State to me so that I can complete a long-term project.

I am currently transcribing the admission records held at the Library of Virginia and then posting the data to the bio section of each memorial. Thus far, I have completed 1828 through 1866.

I haven't come across Elizabeth's admission yet but when I do, I will send you the information and a copy of the ledger page the entry was found on. I will need your email address to do this. Please go to my profile page and click on the email address and send me yours.

If Elizabeth was born around 1831, I would assume that I will come across her admission very soon. I average one year of admissions every day. From this record, you should get, patient number, admission date, age at admission, sex, marital status, previous admission, supposed cause, build, complexion, hair, eyes, occupation, progress of treatment, date of death, and cause of death.

My father James Edward Lawson Jr was born and raised in Harlan County KY as well. His parents were James Edward Lawson Sr and Wanda Thompson Lawson. I saw you were related to the Ferrells as am I. I have just recently began to trace my family tree and have really discovered a lot of great information. I love knowing about my past and where I came from and hope to pass this knowledge down to my daughter when she grows up.
