Re: Reubin Elsom Albemarle, VA
Lori, I am a direct descendant of Reubin Elsom, and his son William.I have he was born Dec 27, 1790 in Albemarle, VA to William Elsom and Sara, who came to VA from England.He married Elizabeth "Betsy" Dawson Nov 2, 1808.This might be where your date of 1808 came from?My record of birthdates are sketchy at best, but this is what I have.The only documented date that I have for sure is his date of death in Green Mountain Virginia.What I have is that he and Betsy had sons Nelson (b. 3/17/1812), Martin (b. 1815), Dawson (b. 1819), William H. (b. Oct 1822), daughters Martha Mildred (b. 1829), and Mary (b. 1831).He died in Green Mountain Virginia, May 5, 1858. He had a brother William (b. 1/19/1784) and sisters Nancy Shepherd Elsom (b. abt 1785) and Sara Bowman Elsom (b.?)
By the way, do you know Edith Lemaster?She is my cousin.
