Buckingham County: The Hatton Ferry

It’s summer and that means the Hatton Ferry is running – river permitting.  Please visit the official site to learn more about the history of the ferry: The Hatton Ferry

And don’t miss Sue A. Miles’ article, “The Ferry Man of Hatton Ferry,” in this month’s Buckingham Beacon.  If you live outside of Buckingham County, you can find a PDF of the May-June issue here: “The Ferry Man of Hatton Ferry.”

This link will take you to the Slate River Rambling post: Ferry Cross the James

I have a special fondness for the Hatton Ferry and for the photo above.  My ancestor’s brother-in-law, Matt Lanye, is sitting in one of the buggies.  He married Elizabeth “Lizzie” Lavity Harris on July 7, 1886 in Buckingham County.
