This is an update to the post Dibrell Family Genealogy I, published on February 14, 2013. When I figure out how to link to the first post, I will do so here.
This is information I was able to gather from visiting the Blount County, Tennessee, and Buckingham County, and Richmond, Virginia area during the summer of 2013.
The book “Lee of Virginia, 1642-1892, Biographical and Genealogical Sketches of the Descendants of Colonel Richard Lee,” describes the descendancy from Richard through his son Charles (who married Elizabeth Medstand), and his grandson, Thomas.
Thomas’s children were: William, Thomas, Richard, Charles, John, and Elizabeth. Elizabeth Lee married Anthony Dibrell, and they had four children: Charles, Elizabeth, Judith, and Anthony.
“Marriages of some Virginia Residents, 1607-1800,” lists Ensign Charles Dibrell as married to Martha Burton. I was looking for proof of their marriage, and this is as close as I’ve come, so far.
“Genealogical Records of Buckingham County, Virginia,” describes Charles Dibrell’s exact service in the Revolutionary War, plus a list of those people who testified to Charles’s service.
Much information is already out there on the Dibrell line. These are just a few of the details obtained this past summer.
