On This Day in 1822

187 Years Ago Today
April 12, 1822 – August 29, 1888

My 2nd great grandmother, Nancy Moore Runyan/Runion, was born to Joseph and Nancy (Jacobs) Runyan. She is buried at the Harry Cemetery, Falls Mills, VA along with her husband, James Harrison Tabor whom she married December 2, 1840. I am very thankful to Judy Llamas for identifying this couple from a picture that hung on the wall at the L.W. Buckland, SR house in Falls Mills. Nancy and James had eight children:

  1. Emily Emma Tabor (m. Wm Jasper Buckland)
  2. Sarah Jane Tabor (m. Jacob Alexander Buckland, my g-grandparents)
  3. Samuel G. Tabor
  4. George C. Tabor
  5. William B. Tabor
  6. Joseph Wade Tabor
  7. James Robert Tabor
  8. Meldora Tabor

My grand aunt, Cora Belle Buckland, was one of six children born to Jacob Alexander and Sarah Jane (Tabor) Buckland in Falls Mills, VA. See posts in January for siblings. Cora Belle married A.D. Fields and had one child that I know of, Nora Georgie Fields. If you know of more, please email sherrykelly@comcast.net
