Dear Fauquier County, Virignia Genealogist,

First, let me say that I am so far as I know not a descendant of the Quisenberry family. Several Quisenberry people married into the Cockrill family descendants of the William Cockrill who went to South Carolina and then Kentucky. My reason for posting this information to help those related to the Quisenberry family. See the book The Paynes of Virginia for more information on Humphrey Quisenburry.

The name is sometimes spelled Cusenberry
