George Lumsden - Louisa County Virginia

George Lumsden - Louisa County Virginia

Does anyone have any thoughts on where George's residence and ordinary were in Louisa County? I have seen the reference to "Old Michaels Road" that appears to start in the area of Elk Creek Road and travel to Mineral. Several places cited in this road reference pretty much put it running through my house. I figure it to be along the lines of present day Kentucky Springs Road.
As many days off that I have been looking in my county, I haven't a thing to show for. I have heard it from a family member some time back that both George I and George II may have been buried under Lake Anna. I know that George II and Elizabeth Cosby Duke are not buried with her father Cleavers Chisholm Duke at the Dukelands estate. I understand that when the lake parameters were defined, that as many graves as were found, were relocated. I have also learned that the lake filled faster and larger than expected.
Would love any theories.

John F. Lumsden and his sister Alice Lumsden Brown did a lot of research in Louisa County and John may have some clues for you. His e-mail is lumsden@cableone.net the last time I was in contact. My John Lumsden was in Franklin County at the same time but unfortunately they probably didn't know each other and as it turns out, Y-DNA results show they weren't related at least on the male line.

I seem to recall that Alice didn't know where they were buried, the last time that I talked to her. Obviously that has been some time ago. You got my attention in reference to the Franklin County Lumsdens. I was unaware that they were not related. So I figure then that George I only had one brother?

John Lumsden of Franklin County first appeared in the Prince William County records about 1747 and I think he may have come to Virginia because of the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745. The Lumsden Y-DNA Project has been very helpful in possibly tracking down his origins but it does show us that our Group 2 is not genetically related to the main Lumsden line in Scotland that George Lumsden undoubtedly belonged to. Through cousins in Canada [we match], they have anecdotal evidence that their ancestors were from Aberdeenshire, went to Ireland after the rebellion, then on to Canada a few generations later, so that is good evidence that John Lumsden of Franklin Co. also came from there. Of course, John F. Lumsden [who got the DNA project going] doesn't match our Group 2, and he does matche with the historical Lumsdens in Aberdeenshire. I believe my John Lumsden belonged to a closely associated family and somehow back in time our Y-DNA [which changes very little over many generations] somehow came from a father who was not actually "a Lumsden." The DNA evidence is very revealing but unfortunately cannot identify who that unknown father might be. If you want to see the results of the DNA study go to:
