Surnames: Cabell, Montgomery
I've been trying hard to connect my Cabell's to John Cabell Breckenridge, the vice president of the U.S. I've been told he is a relative, but can't get past William Frances Cabell (b. 7/29/1829) who married Ann Elizabeth Montgomery in either Jamestown, TN, or Adair Co., KY, not sure which) children may include Sarah, Mary, Lucien, Antha BelleHershel, Emery, Robert, James, and Ruel...I know, sounds like alot. My research may be way off base.
Any help?

Hello Trobcook,
Regarding your inquiry about the Breckinridge family. I possess a letter dated July 14th 1941( I bought it at a flea market in New York City in 1999 for $1) written by Isabella Goodrich Breckenridge (wife of John Cabell Breckenridge, grandson of vice president Breckenridge). It is addressed to an artist, Clare Louise Bell, regarding a miniture she was painting of their daughter Mary, who herself led quite a colourful life. It also contains a press cutting reporting the death of John Cabell Breckenridge, grandson of the vice president.
If you like I could quite easily post a copy of the letter to you. Believe me this will be quicker and more certain than me trying to scan it to you!

I am researching the owners of a Santa Barbara house originally built by Isabella Goodrich Breckinridge, wife of John Cabell Breckinridge and am in touch with her grand-daughter. We both would love to see your 1941 letter and would very much appreciate your sending copies of it and the press cutting to me (she has no e-mail). Thank you so much! Cathy

I hope this reaches you. I have William Francis Cabell as son of Samuel (1795-1863) and Rebecca (Campbell) Cabell, and Samuel son of William (1750-1820) and Sarah (__?__) Cabell, my probable 5th great grandparents.
I face the same brick wall you face as far as connecting to John Cabell Breckinridge, but my family lore contains the same claim. Sorry not to be able to help beyond this. Quentin Cabell Smith

Having just seen your offer, I am surprised that nobody has accepted it. I would like to, 5 years later, if it's still out there. I would be most grateful to you for seeing a copy of the letter, since I am a descendant in that Cabell line. Quentin Cabell Smith

Why am I always late to the party!...
John Cabell Breckinridge was born in 1821 in Cabells Dale, Kentucky. He was actually a junior, since he father was also named John C Breckinridge born 1788. - John Jr's mother was Mary Clay Smith born 1787. - John C B, the VP (you like that huh?.. John CB?), died in Lexington, Kentucky at the age of 54 in 1875. - John's paternal grandmother is where the Cabell name attaches. - Her name was Mary Ho...pe Cabell born 1769 in Lynchburg, VA - Mary's pops was Col. Joseph Cabell born 1732 in Goochland, VA (some records shows Col. John born in Wiltshire, England) - and Mary Hope's mother was Mary Hopkins born 1735. - Col. Joseph Cabell was the 3rd child of Dr. William Cabell and Elizabeth Burks.

Sorry. No help here. I wish I could, but my Cabells (if I could be sure who they were) must have been from another planet. All I know is that my 4g grandmother, Mary "Polly" (Cabell) Goode added a lot of Goodes to this planet. Quentin Cabell Smith

In 1999, my wife and I purchased the 1921 house built by Isabella Goodrich and John C. Breckenridge in Santa Barbara. I have some information about the family and the house which I am willing to share if you contact me at bobfulmer@cox.net.
