Hello ~ I just discovered on Family Search that Mattie Maud CLARK(E) from Rappahannock married James Dearing. Their detailed Marriage Records are on line now. Mattie "Martha" was born in 1876 according to one census record, She had a sister named Matilda and they were very close in age.

Thomas and Catherine CLARK were my g g grandparents and they were her were her parents!
I can't seem to find them in 1910, were they in PA like may in the family?

I am thrilled to find out that I am tied to the Dearing family! As I mentioned to another poster, Mattie Maud Clark was one of the 14 children of my g g grandparents, Thomas and Catherine(THOMPSON) CLARK from Rappahannock.

Does that make us distant cousins?
LOL
Stay in touch.

Hello, I think I have been researching your family. I believe Frank has an uncle Martin as well. Martin's parents were Isabelle Jordan and John Dearing. I cannot go past them. Martin raised nephews Clarence, Ulysses and Robert.
I have started a public tree called Dearings of Rappahannock. or Rappahannock Dearings. One of the two. Please check it out.
Thanks so much,

Surnames: Dearing, Lynch
There is going to be a Families of Avoca Gathering July 6, 2013 at the Avoca Museum in Altavista. Most of the slaves took the names Dearing and Lynch, although there was one Walker slave on the plantation. He married a Dearing.
the Rappahannock Dearing slaves were connected to the Otterbourne and Avoca slaves. The Brownings, Montegues and Fauntleroy's moved their slaves back and forth to prevent the union army from taking them or anything else happening to them so the slaves from both plantations intermingled.
Please come to the gathering if you possibly can. contact me for more information or Frank Murray the director of Avoca.
