Searching for "cousins" of my EPPES line. Robert P. Eppes father was John Eppes who died in CCC, VA in 1836. Robert's youngest daughter Laura Lee Eppes was my Greatgrandmother. I have some wonderful records for John and Robert. Including statements to the Southern Claims Commission after the Civil War (1871) by two of his sons Augustus and Littleberry. Also his nephew Alexander BRADLEY (youngest son of Elizabeth EPPES and John William BRADLEY).

John's children were:

John C. Eppes (b. abt. 1805)m. CARTER
Littleberry Eppes (b. abt. 1808) m. WADDILL
Elizabeth Eppes (b. 23 March 1812) m. BRADLEY
Rebecca Eppes (b. abt. 1813) m. MARSTON
Mary Ann Eppes (b. 12 May 1818) m. MAJOR
James Eppes (b. abt. 1820)
Robert P. Eppes (b. 1822) m. Mary Ann?

Robert's children were:

Augustus Eppes b. July, 1850 m. TIMBERLAKE
Robert Eppes b. abt. 1852 m. BRADLEY
Littleberry Eppes b. 30 Aug. 1853 m. BARNES
Allison Eppes b. abt. 1857 d. 1865 unmarried
Ann R. Eppes b. abt. 1859
Virginia b. abt. ?
Laura Lee Eppes, b. Sept 1, 1866 m. WALKER

Wish to collaborate and share what I have with others who are interested in this EPPES line and associated surnames.

Hi there! First, how do you KNOW that our lines are related? I have been stuck on John Eppes who died in 1836 for years! I'm still trying to make that connectiion with his parents. Then I think I will get somewhere. My e-mail is Anything I can help you with will be my pleasure. I have been to VA and have masses of papers, copies, etc. Maybe somewhere in there is something that will help you. It's interesting that I was just going over these old papers of mine looking for clues while you were sending me this e-mail! Serendipity?

Read your message concerning Francis Eppes IV.
Ihave considerable information on this line, as he
is a direct ancestor of mine on my mothers
side. I am looking for information on Peyer Eppes,
son of Francis IV. Hopefully we can compare notes.

The bio on Francis Epps IV on pages 150-156 of the book "ANCESTORS AND DESCENDANTS OF FRANCIS EPES I OF VIRGINIA, VOLUME ONE" does not show anyone named Peyer.

Francis Epes born about 1683 and his will was proved Dec 1734. His will mention his wife Sarah and his children Francis,Anne, Martha, Richard and William. No Peter is listed as a son. Francis V had a grandson named Peter Francisco who was the son of Henry Winfield Epps (1793-1847). Peter was born abt 1835 and died after the Civil War from effects of military service. He was a student at VMI and served in the 13th Virginia Cavalry, C.S.A

There was another Peter Eppes who died in 1821 in Prince George County. He was married to Mary Poythress. This Peter was the son of John VI. This Peter had a son named Peter, Jr. born 12 June 1814 and died 26 July 1876. He was a MD. Peter Jr, married Susanna Bland Bott on 13 Dec 1844. Hope this info will help you. Source is the book previously cited. It is very well documented

Gail: What time frame are we talking about? The names you mention are familiar but not of my lines. Do you know about the "eppesgenealogy" site at Yahoo? I believe I saw the names you mentioned there. If you contact me I may be able to help since I have been searching in Charles City County for some time.
