I am a Family Historian for the Sydnor, Thweatt, Roper, and Meredith families of Dinwiddie County, Virginia. The Ragsdales are related to the Sydnors through Martha Dabney, daughter of William Dabney and Julia Sydnor. Washington Sydnor married Lizzie Davidson, daughter of William Davidson. If you are related, I'm interested in info on both families.

Washington F. Sydnor (1838-1887)is my Great, Great Uncle. He graduated from VMI in 1860 as an engineer. He was a Captain in the 41st Regiment of Virginia Infantry and was seriously wounded in skirmishes before the Battle of Chancelorville in 1863. He married "Lizzie" Davidson in 1866 in Petersburg. She died in Jan. 1900 in Dinwiddie County. Do you have her birth date and place? I would like all info you have on her parents and siblings. Her father was apparently from Scotland.

Do you know from what family this William Davidson descended (do you have his parents)? There were Davidsons nearby in Prince Edward, Buckingham, Cumberland, Charlotte and Appomattox, VA Counties, and some were related and some were not. Thanks.

Surnames: Davidson, Hamilton
There was a William H. Davidson who married Ann Eliza Hamilton in 1814 in Charlotte County, VA. In 1850, there was a younger Ann E. Davidson (age 22) in Charlotte County, VA who was listed as having been born in Granville or Gramercee (?) NC. She was living with the Hamilton family (probably the brother of the above Ann Eliza (Hamilton) Davidson). I could never find this William H. Davidson (or his wife) on ANY VA census or any other record other than his marriage record, and based on his apparent daughter's NC birth, I wonder if he could have left the state for a while. Any idea if this could have been your William Davidson? His first wife might have died since the daughter was living with the wife's family. There was yet a third Ann E. Davidson in Charlotte County, VA. She was born about 1830 and died at age 23 in 1853. I do not know who her parents were, but there are a couple of possibilities (including a William W. Davidson and his wife; this William was a likely relative of William H. Davidson). The middle/second Ann E. Davidson moved to Halifax County, VA with the Hamiltons by 1860.

UPDATE: There were apparently only two Ann Eliza Davidsons in Charlotte Co., VA. One was the Ann Eliza Hamilton (who married William H. Davidson in 1844, NOT 1814 as I originall reported) and Ann Eliza Johns (who married Wiliam Bryant Davidson in 1847). This second one must have been the Ann Eliza Davidson who died in 1853 at the age of 23. William and Ann Eliza (Hamilton) Davidson apparently had Thomas A. Davidson and Adeline/Adelia Davidson.
