    Dear Joanne,

    I heartily thank you for your tireless efforts to unearth and share our Buckingham County past. We are enjoying not only the postings, but also the publications. They are all sources which we continually refer back to when we need help with finding facts about our Buckingham past.

    Much applause and many cheers,
    Your Buckingham cousin,

    Joanne, Thanks for what you do. Got my copy of the Jefferson Brothers at the Historic Buckingham Open House the other day. Looking forward to reading it and I want to see if it mentions the time Jefferson crossed the Fluvanna (James ) at New Canton when he got lost.
    Have a wonderful Christmas. Looking for more in 2019.

      It’s great to know you are ready to dive into THE JEFFERSON BROTHERS. Have fun!

      More Buckingham County adventures ahead in 2019.

    And THANK YOU for your relentless hunt for the treasure of information about Buckingham. Growing up in Appomattox I never understood how historical Buckingham is and had no idea how many relatives of mine lived there! Thank you isn’t enough but know they are so sincere!

      Thank you, Nancy.

      When the holiday festivities slow down, try searching the archives for surnames and favorite topics. Lots of wonderful Buckingham history to explore!
