Hello Bernice,

I'm so glad I could help!

Actually, I know nothing of the Riner family other than the information I looked up for you. I come from the Sullivan and Long families of Greene County (and before them the Sheltons/Dabneys/Maupins/Vias of Albemarle and Beadles in what used to be Orange, but was annexed to become Greene). As a result of trying to track down some of my antecedents, which remains a challenge, I have purchased several books over the past year, and always try to help another researcher trying to find information on family in that area. When I began my search only a year ago, a person who was a perfect stranger at the time sent me 10 pages of information on my Sullivan/Long connections, so every time I see an opportunity to help someone now, regardless of whether we're related, I do it - kinda returning the favor.

Let me know if you need lookups for anyone else in the Greene/Albemarle/Orange/Rockingham areas. Feel free to e-mail me directly if you want. I'm always glad to help.
