    Text The principal evidence that Cornelius Dabney was probably a son of James Dabney is a 1732 deed of a tract of land originally patented in 1701 by Sarah Dabney, a sister of James Dabney. One side of the tract adjoined another tract obtained by James Dabney at the same time as Sarah’s patent. The 1732 deed stated that the owner of James Dabney’s tract in 1732 was Cornelius Dabney, who most likely inherited it from his father, James Dabney. The 1701 patent and the 1732 deed are reprinted in The Virginia Genealogist, 1962, 6, 3-7. The deed was destroyed by a courthouse fire in 1885, but a copy of it was rerecorded at King William Courthouse 29 Apr 1887 by John S. DeFarges in King William County Deed Book 5, p. 80.
