Ancestry of Richard Lipscomb Dabney Jr., Birmingham, Alabama

About Our Family Research

My life growing up was immersed in genealogical discussions comparing my Dabney grandmother (Mary Hibernia Lipscomb) and her four Lipscomb sisters with their 2nd cousins, the five Langhorne sisters of Virginia (including Irene Gibson, Lady Nancy Astor, Phyllis, Elizabeth, and Nora). It always seemed as though we were all interested in learning more about the family. By the time I was 18 I had discovered a newspaper from 1908 Richmond TIMES-DISPATCH about the Meade family, which connected us to Edward III and the Wars of the Roses. A quick look up in the Encyclopedia Britannica connected us further back--past William the Conqueror, Alfred the Great, and ending up with Cerdic, a West Saxon chieftain of the 6th century. One can never be too wise, however; thus I am always looking for more info and more connections.
