No! I have not seen that book. We have been to Culpepper several times doing research in the library and also have been to Williamsburg and Jamestown (including the 400th) a number of times. Since I started my family search, I have gained so much information and so many documents! Then, I've had the misfortune to have had two brain tumors since 2004. I'm doing okay, but bad health can sure put a crimp in research. I am very interested in the Towels and Stockleys. I descend from two daughter of Stockely Towels and Ann Vallott! Dau Mary m. Thomas Sparks. Dau Frances m. Richard Beverly Vawter. Sparks had a daughter Mary. and Vawter had a son Russell. Mary and Russell married and did have children contrary to a Towles mention of it in their family book and will (stating they had no issue)! Their daughter Nancy Vawter (not to be confused with another Nancy Vawter) m. Samuel Rigg. They are buried in the Rigg cemetery out side of Macomb, IL. I've been there many times. I live in Peoria, IL. So, I'm related to the family twice! The first time I entered the information, I did not know this. I thought I had made a midstake! I wiped out everything and started over, only to come to the same conclusion. Then, I searched for proof and found it in the Towles book and in another book that listed the children. I also purchased two discs of documents from a man who has done extensive research on these families. I have not yet got to check his docs against mine. I hope I have all of that typed correctly! I'll look for the book. Thanks, Sue
