In your message I noticed that you show a George Thayer Diggs who was born in Portsmouth, VA. I now live in a Senior Citizens Retirement community in Northern Virginia and one of my very close friends is named George Harry Diggs who was born in Mathews, VA, lived and worked in Portsmouth, VA at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard. By chance is there any connection with your Diggs Family.

Also I noted that you show in your message an Altie Evelyn Matheews. During 1947 and 1948 I attended Virgniia Polytechnic Institute and a close friend of mine was named Geroge Mathews. He dropped out of school, returned to Portsmouth, VA and worked at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard. Any connection with your Mathews descendant?

In a previous message I forgot to mention that Cousin Charles L. Bland is the Historian for the Bland Family. In addition to his 609 book on the Bland Family, he periodically issues Bland family newsletters. in the one that he just recently issued he has covered on pages 169 thru 177 the Blands of Isle of Wight County, VA. In addition there are three other families that are closely related to the Isle of Wight Blands and he has also covered these in considerable detail. They are my Caroline County Blands, Rockingham Co., VA Blands, and the Pendleton County, VA/WV Blands.

Since you seem to be unwilling to provide your E-Mail address you apparently ane not really interested in knowing anything more about your Bland Family.

Bernie Bland in Springfield, VA
