Hello Ruby,I hope your still getting your email and this message gets to you. My name is Ron L. Hooper and I am a descendent of the Buckingham County, Virginia Hoopers. My oldest ancestor is a Col. George Hooper who died in Buckingham County around 1804. One of his sons, a John Hooper had a daughter named Elizabeth (Betsy). She married Thomas J. Agee about 1821-1825.
Now...I don't want to be a stick in the mud, but I have been studying this family for some time and would like to propose a question and see what you might think about my thoughts. ******************** Notes for THOMAS J. AGEE:
Thomas J. Agee was a Sgt. in the war in 1812. The information and dates about Thomas J. Agee and Elizabeth Hooper and children was taken from the BIBLE RECORD in posession of Mrs. Elvira Kyle of Lynchburg.
Children of THOMAS AGEE and ELIZABETH WOOLRIDGE are:
i.JOHN PIERCE7 AGEE, b. September 26, 1812.
ii.THOMAS WOODRIDGE AGEE, b. May 09, 1816.
iii.BENJAMIN HOOPER AGEE, b. January 16, 1818.
iv.ALVIRA V. AGEE, b. May 09, 1814.
v.LENEARSE BOLLING AGEE, b. May 04, 1820.
vi.LAFAYETTE H. AGEE, b. July 29, 1826.
vii.SARAH LEE AGEE, b. February 01, 1828.
viii.LYON E. AGEE, b. December 04, 1828.
ix.GEORGE C. AGEE, b. April 10, 1832. ************************* Ruby......I'm not sure, but I think I got the above data from a contribution at World Connect. Anyway, what I have an issue with is 1.) There is a 6 year gap in the births of Lenearse and Lafayette. Why do you think? 2.) There is no proof of course, but many Hooper researchers are confident that Elizabeth was first married to a Wooldridge who died and then came the marriage to Mr. Agee. You wouldn't happen to know the marriage date for Elizabeth and Mr. Agee?
Where I'm going with this is.....I believe it's qite possible that children John P., Thomas W., Benjamin H. Alvira V. and Lenearse are all the children of Mr. Wooldridge and then were adopted by Mr. Agee.
