1854-1868, as well as abstracting marriages from various earlier newspaper
sources and W.P.A. inventories and private sources. Over 1,100 marriages are
reproduced here. This is one of the most valuable volumes on this county to

BUCKINGHAM CO., VA UNDETERMINED CHANCERY FILES INDEX Jeanne Stinson. This is
volume two of Ms. Stinson's magnificent research effort into the records of
Buckingham County. She utilizes the almost forgotten file boxes of
undetermined chancery suits( many of which give evidence predating the 1869
fire) to elucidate the lives of many Buckingham residents who came in
contact with the court system. An excellent explanation of the chancery
process precedes the work. 1994, vi, 121 pages, index. [IBBucf] $12.95

BUCKINGHAM CO., VA. BOARD OF SUPERVISORS MINUTE BOOK, 1870-1887 Jeanne
Stinson. The following is an abstract of the minutes taken at the Board of
Supervisor's meetings containing a chronological history of the rebuilding
of the Court house and other facilities at the Court House Square. The
Poorhouse accounts and the County Treasury Accounts are also included. Lists
include jurors, persons dealing with the poorhouse, premiums paid for
"scalps" and election officials. All persons dealing with the county had to
have their account approved by the board before a warrant could be issued
for payment. (If a person was issued more than one warrant on a single page
the name was not repeated after the first time it is listed. The "accounts
allowed" warrants were numbered but the warrants are no longer extant and
would have no meaning today.) 1994, vi, ca. 100 pages, index. [IBBbsm]=

BUCKINGHAM CO., VA EXTANT POLL LISTS (1788, 1840, 1841 & 1848) Jeanne
Stinson. This is volume one of Ms. Stinson's magnificent research series,

lists for contested federal or state elections to locate residents of this
burned county in space (voting district) and time. A most valuable addition
to the history of Buckingham. 1994, vi, 136 pages, index. [IBBkel] $12.95

BUCKINGHAM CO., VA NATIVES WHO DIED ELSEWHERE, 1853-1896 Roger G. Ward. This
project consisted of reviewing the Virginia State-wide Death Registers of
1853 to 1896 (Microfilm Reel 1 to Reel 38 to identify those persons listed
in the various counties and independent cities who had listed as their place
of birth as Buckingham County. With the Buckingham County Courthouse (and
all Will and Deed Books) destroyed by fire in 1869, it was hoped that many
persons (and families) not listed in the available Federal Census could be
identified. Approximately 1,500 death entries (including about 100 slave
entries) are published here. To those readers wishing to study the extended
ancestral families of present-day Buckingham residents, the information
concerning spouses and parents, as well as other relatives and in-laws,
should be of interest. To those descended from the colonial Buckingham
pioneers who headed west to Tennessee or back to Richmond, this information
should help to better describe the Buckingham family prior to migration.
