In Reply to: Driscoll, Dennis - 1913, Alleghany Co. by Cindy Hall Driscoll of 283

Dennis Driscoll (1844-1914 according to my information) was married to Virginia (Jennie) Estella Richardson (1851-1899) on Oct 20, 1869. I have no information on his parentage, but she was the daughter of Rev. William A. and Adeline (Bryan) Richardson. The parents are buried in the cemetery of Mt. Pleasant Methodist Church in Alleghany Co., where he had been minister. Jennie and Dennis are buried in Cedar Hill Cemetery in Covington, VA.
I have them with nine children: William A. (1871-1920), Daniel E. (1872-1951), Ernest K. (1874-1900), Ester A. (1875-1875), Euphy Clay (1876-1964). Elwood D. (1878-1964), John L. (1880-1913), Mary Adelaide (1882-1942), Katie G. 1885-1886), and Muriel Edith (1887-1974). Ernest and John married but had no children; ONLY William and Euphy had children. If you want their names I can send them.
Jennie and my grandfather John Wesley Richardson (1861-1934) were sister and brother. They were two of eight children.
Much of this info comes from a compilation by Theodore Arthur, of Alexandria, VA, and Donna Dressler Miller, formerly of Clifton Forge, now of North Carolina. Ted Arthur is a grandson of another of the Richardson siblings, James Marion Richardson.
Let me know if this helps.
JR
