CCC Chancery Records - Martha Munford
Posted by: Jordan (ID *****9826) Date: December 07, 2011 at 07:44:12
  of 417

Like so many others researching their Charles City County roots, I've hit a dead end. Her name is Martha. She has neither a date of birth nor a date of death. Her husband was John Munford, son of Col. William Green Munford and Ann Stanhope, and they were the parents of three children: Ann "Nancy" S. Munford, Robert H. Munford and Stanhope R. Munford.

Martha does not have a surname, although I suspect the middle initial of one of her children could be a start. Her husband John died around 1803 and there's no record of her after that (at least one that I've been able to locate). "Nancy" appears to be her eldest child, having been born around 1796 (1850 census of CCC) but there could have been others who died young. Using this date of birth, one could say that Martha was born around 1770.

Her son Robert H. was the only child that married, having done so to Mary Ann Cocke Willcox in 1823. They were the parents of seven children:
Martha, Ann Rosalie, Mary Ann, Margaret Gertrude, William Green, Robert Walker Christian and John Henley Munford.

Martha is my dead end and I'm hoping someone has her in their tree. Does anyone have access to an index of the Charles City County chancery records? I'm hoping a clue may be in those records since I've been unable to locate her in the Deed or Will books of the county.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
