Surnames: OVERBEY
Camillus Overbey was Robert Camillus OVERBY b 1838 in
Mecklenburg Co., VA, married to Anna Nelson Williams.
Robert Camillus Overby was the son of Robert Yancy Overbey
(b. 33-17-1797, d. 1872) married to Mary Pettipool in 1820.
Mary was the daughter of Stephen Pettipool.

Robert Yancy Overby was the son of Peter Z. Overbey
(b. ca 1720, d. 1824) married to Ann Yancy (d.1859).
Most of these families lived & died in Mecklenburg, and
the Overbys are buried in a family cemetery in what is
now Clarksville.

As far as the spelling, my family always spelled it w/ an
"e": Overbey. However, there are several spellings, in-
cluding Overbee & OVERBURY. An excellent book is:
THE OVERBURY STORY by Libby Overby, L-O-C# 87-83688.
She does the Overby genealogy back to England w/ a great
many pictures & good documentation.
