Below is a message regarding the daughter of Newsom Pierce Sr 1755-1820 who died in Nottoway Co, VA.He also may have lived in Lunenburg Co, VA. This message is regarding the possibility that his daughter who would have been Martha Pierce must have married a member of the VA Cabaniss Family. Do any of these names and locations in VA appear familiar to anyone who descends from a Cabaniss Family in VA?
"Newsom Pierce Sr. 1755-1820 in Nottoway Co, VA and possibly earlier in Lunenberg Co, VA also had a daughter to whom he referred in his will as Martha Cabaniss. So we believe that she was his daughter, Martha Pierce, who married a Mr. Cabaniss. My second cousin who lives in Montgomery, Al says there are many Cabaniss families in Al. My cousin pronounces the name Cabaniss as "Cab-a-niss." Perhaps I should also post this message in a VA Cabaniss Family Forum. Another researcher who responded to my message has an ancestry.com family tree entitled 'The CABINESS Family.' "
There is no VA Cabaniss Family Forum so I shall try the VA Genealogy Forum
