Re: THE SEARCH FOR" Sarah/ALICE who?" of New Kent

In Reply to: THE SEARCH FOR" Sarah/ALICE who?" of New Kent by Dianna Privette of 465

There was a Sarah Dandridge Cooke Duval that lived in New Kent County prior to and after the Civil War. I believe that Dandridge was her middle name, since reading her diary and writings indicate she was married one and that was to her husband Robert Duval with whom she had a total of 8 children. Sarah's story is remarkable, especially in her writings about "Recollections of 1864" when she and her ailing husband take their sick children from New Kent where the Union army is about to raid their farm house and they head for Chester Village in VA (half way between Richmond and Petersburg. They were refugees seeking sanctuary but instead with a sick family are trapped in their new house while a horrible battle breaks out around them. There are two sources for this data. The first is the VA Historical Society and the second is a book using the same data, it is entitled: "Women of the CIvil War South" by a woman who's last name is Culpepper. I hope this is what you are looking for Diane. Best wishes, Jerri
