William Barbee of Essex and Middlesex Counties,
Virginia (1660 - 1720). Descendants moved to the Wake, Chatham, Orange Counties
area of North Carolina . From North Carolina many branches went to
Tennessee and a few branches went to Kentucky, Georgia and Texas. For extensive
information on this line look for "A Study of the Barbee Families of Chatham,
Orange and Wake Counties in North Carolina" by Ruth Herndon Shields, Belle
Lewter West and Kathryn Crossley Stone, 1971 in many genealogical libraries.
There is a thick supplement also. Gregory Barbee is in the process
of preparing a further update of this great work and it is available on line!
Please help Gregory by sending him corrections.
Barbee's Mountain and family cemetery is located on the University of North Carolina campus. Christopher "Old Kit" Barbee was the major donor of land for the University.
The goal is to supplement traditional genealogy research and help find family connections and origins. Goals are to determine whether William is related to Andrew Barbee (the other early U.S. Barbee line), whether U.S. Barbee's are related to Barbee's in other countries and whether other Barbee lines in the U.S. connect to William Barbee. An added benefit to participating is getting confirmation of traditional genealogy research. If you are a male Barbee descendant of William we could really use your help with the DNA study.
