Eliza Herring, sister of Wm Jennings Herring
I have been trying to connect my Eliza Mildred Herring born abt 1800 to the correct Herring Family in Orange Co., VA. She married John F. Hill in 1838 in Orange County, VA. She lists in her marriage record that her mother was Sally Herring. She did not list her father. I see from that you have an Eliza Herring whose mother was Sarah (Sally) Holbert Herring. I understand that the information on your branch of the Herring family came from Clarenda Cole Herring’s handwritten genealogy. Does a copy of this genealogy exist in one of the libraries in the Central Virginia area? I would love to see a copy. If there is anything more that you can add to connect my Eliza M. Herring Hill to your family’s Eliza Herring, d/o George and Sarah (Sally) Holbert Herring, I would appreciate your passing it along.

Elsey C Davis
I have linked the family of your grandfather's brother, Elsey C. Davis to his father William Jefferson Davis' Find A Grave memorial #6774642 and his mother Eugenia Sanders' Find A Grave memorial #21400667. I can send you copies of the death notices of Elsey and his family which appeared in the Baltimore Sun if you would like or transfer management if you would want that.

Did you know that William Jefferson, born Jan. 8, 1809, d. Oct. 10, 1875 married Sarah Reynolds. Sarah Reynolds was born 1819 in Orange County Va. and died 1863 in OrangeCounty Va. They were father and mother to Rueben Tinsley and William Jefferson Davis. The first William Jefferson was a son of William Tinsley and Sarah Boston Davis who are buried in Maplewood Cemetery.
William Tinsley owned 100 acres of land on top of the mountain behind Maplewood Cemetery now called Cameron Mountain. William Tinsley and Sarah Boston Davis had 18 children born to them but only a few lived. I thought I would pass this on to you.

Capt. Drinkard
Hi Robert,

Thanks for your note, but I am afraid that I have nothing to offer you in your search. All I have on Drinkard is what I have entered on his page.
Good luck with your search, and I am sorry I cannot help further,
