I am sorry I didn't return your query into the Cabaniss family. At the time of your message I was in process of getting a new computer, as mine crashed.
It does look as if we are related in part with William Parks Cabaniss. He was my GGrandfather. He was married to Eilzibeth Bradford Brinkley Cabaniss. You can read my info below.
I am really interested if you have some more info. I am willing to exchange with you any info that I have. I would love to have yours too.
Please let me hear from you. I am going to put this back on the Cabaniss forum also in case youe e-mail addy isn't the same.
