I have come across a court record that may be of interest to others researching the Curds of Buckingham Co., Va.(This is taken from a transcription rather than from the actual court record itself.)
Wilson Co., Tenn. Chancery Court Records 1840-1842, pp. 33-39
"Alexander Brightwell versus Isham F. Davis and wife Sarah.In the year 1807, Alexander Brightwell intermarried with Sarah Carter, then a widow, in Prince Edward County, Virginia. Her maiden name was Curd.She had inheritied property in her own right.From Virginia, Brightwell and wife moved to Stewart County, Tennessee.They then moved on to Wilson County [Tenn] in Mar 1835.The said Sarah continued to have money from her first husband in her possession.The said Sarah departed this life on 28 Oct 1838.She was in bad health from the Spring of 1838 until her death.She had formed a very strong attachment for the said Isham F. Davis and wife Sally who was the niece of the wife of the said Alexander Brightwell.Said Brightwells had no children.Brightwell is charging that Davis took money from the said Sarah Brightwell.10 Mar 1840".
There is a Prince Edward Co., Va marriage bond dated 3 Aug 1807 for a marriage intended between Alexander Brightwell and "Sally Carter, widow of Joseph Carter, decd."
Thus, Sarah (Sally) Curd first married Joseph Carter, then second married Alexander Brightwell.Her niece was Sally Davis, wife of Isham F. Davis.According to online postings, (which I haven't independently confirmed as accurate), Sally Davis was the daughter of John Curd and Elizabeth Lumpkin; John was one of the sons of William Curd, who died in Buckingham Co. circa 1797.(Previous published reports that John Curd was a son of Joseph Curd of Buckingham Co. have been convincingly shown to be incorrect.See Virginia Genealogist Vol. 18, No. 3, pp. 163-169.)
Thus, assuming that Sally Curd Davis really was a daughter of John Curd and Elizabeth Lumpkin, then Sarah Curd (Carter) Brightwell should be included among the children of William Curd of Buckingham Co.(It is unclear which of William's two wives was her mother.)I have yet to see her mentioned in any of the published or online genealogies of the Curds of Buckingham Co., Va.
