  • Notes 
    • Frances Dabney was born to Isaac and Ann (Hill) Dabney November 26, 1778, in King William County, Virginia.
      She married Richard Dabney Jr., who was a first cousin, May 6, 1795, when she was 17. With Richard, she had three or four children: Susan Hill, born February 8, 1796; Catherine Gwathmey, born December 30, 1797; Temple, born November 26, 1798/99; and possibly Richard, not mentioned in his father’s account book, which provided all of the other dates, but listed in W. H. Dabney’s history of the Dabney family.
      Richard died in late 1804 or early 1805, aged 29. Frances remarried to Dr. John Segar, a widower, January 22, 1813. John was listed in the King William County land tax rolls with 400 acres from 1801-1806 and in the personal property tax rolls from 1801 through 1811. When the 1810 census was taken, he was living in neighboring King and Queen County with four children, his first wife, and an older woman. In 1817/18, John and Frances moved to Richmond, where he appeared in the 1818 and 1819 personal property tax lists. John and Frances had five children: William, born March 2, 1814, died in February, 1815; Susan Hill, born August 26, 1815; Rebecca, born November 29, 1817; Sarah, born May 15, 1820; and William Richard, born May 8, 1822, died September 4, 1825. When the 1820 census was taken, they were living in Richmond with 11 children, and 13 slaves. John died May 6, 1823, aged 52. Frances died July 23, 1847, aged 68. [2, 4, 5, 6, 7]
