About Cornelius Dabney, of King William

Cornelius Dabney of King William County was born to James and Ann (Sherwood) Dabney about 1690-98 in King and Queen County, later King William County. About 1720-25, he married Lucy Winston, the daughter of Isaac Winston Sr. and his wife, Sarah (Dabney) Winston, of neighboring Hanover County. Sarah Winston was a sister of James Dabney, so Lucy was Cornelius’ first cousin.

Cornelius and Lucy had two children: William, born about 1721-25, and Isaac, born after 1725 and probably deceased before or soon after reaching adulthood.

Cornelius died before 1739, when he would have been about 36-44. Lucy remarried to William (or Williams) Coles after 1739 and before 1745, when Lucy and her second husband, William Coles, appeared in court in opposition to a petition asking the court to order the sale of 1 acre of the land of Lucy’s son, Isaac Dabney, to construct a mill.

Cornelius - married Lucy Winston. He was born in 1756 and died in 1821. He served in the American army in the Revolution.
