Today’s post is about my maternal 6th great grandparents, William Lunsford also spelled Lunceford and Rebeckah Basye. I know very little about this couple. I only recently added them as the parents of Reuben Lunsford (about 1769 to about 1845). My hope is that someone seeing this post will exchange/share information with me about this couple and their family.
The marriage record I have for them is from Virginia, Marriages of the Northern Neck of Virginia, 1649-1800.
I am descended from this couple as follows:
William Lunsford & Rebeckah Basye – 6th great grandparents
Reuben Lunsford & Mary Margaret Dennison – 5th great grandparents
John Lunsford & Mary “Polly” Sackville Hudson – 4th great grandparents
Nancy Delilah Lunsford & William Allen Boggs – 3rd great grandparents
Susan Caroline Boggs & James Gillen Hunter – 2nd great grandparents
Florence Hunter & Robert Edward Lee Bowden – great grandparents
Florence Lee Nora Bowden & Joseph Albert Milne – grandparents
Patricia Milne & Harry Norman Gould – parents
On Ancestry you can place your DNA matches into groups. I have created groups for my 8 great grandparents. There are 298 matches in the LUNSFORD group. And, that’s only the ones I’ve found so far.
Please get in touch if you are connected with the Lunsford line. I always enjoy meeting new cousins and exchanging information.
