  • Notes 
    • William Spotswood Dabney was born to Cornelius and Elizabeth Smith (Winston) Dabney, December 1, 1792, in Louisa County, Virginia.
      He married Anne White Jackson October 30, 1816 in Louisa County in a double ceremony with Henry Dabney of King William County and Anne’s sister, Catherine White Jackson. They had at least eight children: Catherine, born 1819/20; Robert W., born 1821/22; Mary Lewis, born 1822/23; John W., born abt 1824/25; Frederick Price, born abt 1824/25; Cornelius S., born October, 1825; Virginia, born 1831/32; Lucy, born 1833/34.
      When the 1820 and 1830 censuses were taken, they were living in neighboring Goochland County. William probably died before the 1840 census, which listed Anne Dabney in Louisa County with nine children. In 1850, she was living there with six children: Catherine, Mary Lewis, John W., Cornelius S., Virginia, Lucy, and John’s wife, Mary. Two other children, Robert W. and Frederick Price were found in other households. In the 1850 agricultural census, she reported that 40 acres of her land were improved and 55 acres unimproved.
      Anne probably died in 1855, since her estate was inventoried in September, 1855. [1, 2, 3, 4]
