Re: parents of Charles and Elizabeth Epps
I am a collateral descendant of George Henry Epps, and his brothers, Charles H. Epps, Thomas Clarke Epps, William James Epps, and sisters, Elizabeth M. Epps (your great-grandmother?), Margaret Epps, Mary Ann Epps.
I read your messages with delight, and indeed found Father Thomas C. Epps and Ann Lipscomb, (married in 1835, these, their children, and his second wife Emily in the 1850 census.
All four boys were in the 46th Virginia Infantry, Company A, the Richmond Blues, and I am looking for any of their wartime records. I was especially interested in finding the military career of William James Epps---his officer rank, any info from his war-time letters.
Please let me know if you take PDF, and I will send you the family group record right away.
I have found George's living descendent in Richmond, and speak by phone.
