I am sure, you have gotten your answer by now, but
since, I don't see a follow-up, and our Dollins are
not only from Albemarle, but still in Albemarle, I
am going to furnish some information.
Albemarle was created about 1744, from Goochland and Louisa
Counties, it is in an area called the Piedmont, and goes to the
foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Its principal city is
Charlottesville, and it is known for being the home of
Thomas Jefferson, at Monticello.
Our Dollins mostly lived in the foothills of the Blue Ridge, in
an area of a little village named Batesville, which is in the
southwest part of the county.
To reach Albemarle from Richmond, you go west on Route 64, and you can't miss it. Approx 75 miles. From the Washington area,
I believe you would use Rt. 29, but I'm not real sure of that,
I am sure there is an interstate, but I am not familiar with going in that direction.
Everyone should visit Charlottesville, and Monticello,
and just down from Monticello is Ashlawn ,home of James
Monroe. This is a wonderful place to visit, and very]
