Our "Nicholas" branch, were slaves/servants of the "Cabell Family" of Wiltshire, England, in the early 1700's. 

The earliest family members are William H. Cabell, (1699), Slave owner of Lewis Nicholas (1785), father of John Nicholas (1810) Washington Nicholas, father of Willam Nicholas and Julia Venable  of Lovingston, VA, (1875). Noah and Susan Venable, Susan Diggs (1780), and daughter Sophia Diggs, George and Ann Allen.

Roberta and Emma "Andrews" Godsey, John William Washington, Everett Graves. Areas lived in, were; Nelson County VA., Lovingston, VA, - Dinwiddie County - Richmond, VA., Petersburg, VA, and Baltimore, MD

Surnames attached to this tree, are as follows;

Nicholas, Allen, Mayo, Woodson, Venable, Rose, Rives (on fathers side),

These families resided in Wingina, Nelson, Virginia, and were slave/servants of Nathaniel Francis Cabell, owner of Edgewood, in the old town of Warminster. Which included the "Swan Creek Plantation", located near the mouth of the James River, and neatly tucked away in the base of the "Blue Ridge Mountains", just a few miles from the famous "Walton's Mountain".

Andrews, Godsey, Washington, and Graves are the surnames attached to my mothers side of the family.

Most, if not all, were from a small town just outside of Petersburg, Dinwiddie, Virginia, called Namozine, Dinwiddie, Virginia. 

Enjoy!
