Lucy Sandridge was the daughter of Stephen Sandridge and Sarah (last name probably Henderson) - probably born abt 4-7-1778(died 1-10-1859 in Cabell Co. VA, now WV) in Albemarle Co. VA - Have more on the Sandridge family if you want it.

Sarah, Lucy's sister, married Peter Eads, their daughter, Lucinda, married James G. Keadle who is my greatgreatgrandfather. If you can receive attachments via e-mail, will send you what I have. Since I have a time keeping up with my own line, I would only like to have any children by Lucy and Elijah. Some of my mother's family were in Cabell County by 1809 so maybe there would be something familiar there.

...Elijah and Lucy had 6 sons that I know of - Enoch (my ancestor), William, Elijah II, Payton, Charles, and Henry. I have most of this family's descendants. Do you have the ancestors of Lucy beyond her parents? I will send whatever you want from the Seamands family by return attachment.Al (in Baltimore MD)

Harriett, I found out today that my Sarah Henderson Simmons (married James Brammer) was most likely the dau of Elijah Grant Seamonds and Lucy Sandridge/Sandage. I think you just might have nailed it home when you stated Stephen Sandridge was married to a Sarah with surname most likely being Henderson. I have always thought that my Sarah's middle name was from an ancestor's surname. Any help to further prove this lineage would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance......Diana

I have that Lucy Sandridge married Tarleton Brown in Albemarle Co.,VA ( where the family lived) on 1 Mar 1804- this is from Albemarle Co marriage records.
I descend from 2 of Lucy's brothers- Dillard and William.
Be happy to share what I have and would like to learn more about the families of their siblings.

Good news: I have solved the great mystery of why many of us have no record of this woman. Bad news: She isn't a Sandridge at all. Lucy Seamands was a KEATON.
Refer to the following:
George Selden Wallace, Cabell County Annals and Families (Seamonds), Pg 484-485, Cabell Co Public Library, 455 Ninth Street, Huntington, WV 25701, 1001008985.
Her sister Justine Keaton married Reuben Sandridge (son of Stephen), and I bet people assumed both sister's last name was Sandridge, but it was Justine's married name. So Lucy's maiden name was Keeton, not Sandridge at all, that's why we can't find her.

Casey: Still got a problem. Seamonds and Lucy "Sandridge" had children through 1824 (confirmed). Lucy "Keaton" per the referenced website info marries a James Mann in 1808 (confirmed by good ref.) Birth dates ref. are close but not the same.
Will continue to research.

Casey & Al:
I'm sorry if I added any more confusion to one of the more difficult lines of my genealogy.
In my website www.Geneal.net I simply put the indirect sources that refer to Lucy Sandridge Keaton. These are books that I accessed in the Cabell Co Public Library while on a genealogy visit to Huntington, Cabell Co, WV, in 2000, and are referenced in the website. I have no direct marriage or birth information on Lucy.
Since only one source refers to both Keaton as a birth name and Sandridge as her sister (Justine)'s married name, my best guess at this time is that this is correct, but two other books refer to her as Sandridge, while IGI as Keaton.
I left it as Keaton SANDRIDGE, but put the lineage as KEATON. In my next updating, I'll change it to Sandridge KEATON to keep it consistent.

Linda: You have info on Lucy's siblings. I am having a problem with Lucy being know as Lucy "Keaton" Sandridge with Keaton being considered as her maiden name - not Sandridge. The info you have on her siblings does it confirm the maiden name to be "Sandridge"?
43.html Al Ankrum March 15, 2001
I have the children of Elijah Grant Seamands (Rev.) and Lucy "Sandridge". Can you take a family tree maker file? Also, have a problem that some are indicating that Lucy's real maiden name is Keaton??? Can you help. I can take attachments in Word or Family tree maker.
44.html Al Ankrum March 15, 2001
Diana: Enoch, son of Elijah Grant Seamands Rev., married Ruth Brammer (I have pictures). If Sarah married James Brammer, it must be brother, sister, sister, brother marriages between the Seamands and Brammer families. Do you have info on Brammer ancestors? I have it if you need it. Al
45.html Al Ankrum March 15, 2001
Linda: Additional information. The Lucy Sandridge m. to Elijah Seamands (1796) info shows children born to pair as late a 1824. How does this relate to your info on m. in 1804?
48.html Al Ankrum March 15, 2001
Casey: Further info. on Lucy Sandridge. Info. indicates Lucy has an uncle Hastings Sandridge. My best guess is that the Seamands, Sandridge, and Keaton families are all intermarried - so data indicates. Therefore: Lucy Sandridge could be the dau. of Stephen Sandridge with middle name taken from Keaton relationship. Lucy Keaton could be a separate person (they have separate birthday and marriage dates to separate individuals) the dau. of a male Keaton and a female Sandridge ie: cousins. I am continuing to check the Hastings Sandridge connection - should be grandson of William Sandridge.
56.html Casey March 15, 2001
Al: "Further info. on Lucy Sandridge. Info. indicates Lucy has an uncle Hastings Sandridge."
***What info is this, as I have no Hastings Sandridge ANYPLACE, nor a Sandidge or Sandige or Sandwich either. Please verify with sources.
"My best guess is that the Seamands, Sandridge, and Keaton families are all intermarried - so data indicates."
**I have no records of the Seamands or Keatons until this thread, so not sure where it is all this marrying takes place, it must be further generations down than this one.
"Therefore: Lucy Sandridge could be the dau. of Stephen Sandridge with middle name taken from Keaton relationship."
**Relationship with whom?
"Lucy Keaton could be a separate person (they have separate birthday and marriage dates to separate individuals) the dau. of a male Keaton and a female Sandridge ie: cousins."
**It's possible but then she would be a Lucy SANDRIDGE Keaton, not the other way around. Again, please cite sources, I am citing mine. Thanks.

Yes I can take attachments. If it's no problem I prefer a generation report ( as a .rtf) over a gedcom. Yes her maiden name was Sandridge. As for the Keaton, one of her uncles(Rueben) married a Keaton.

Thanks, I have a ref. that says she had an uncle Hastings Sandridge (as well?).

Re: "Yes her maiden name was Sandridge. As for the Keaton, one of her uncles(Rueben) married a Keaton."
Where'd you get the info from that she is a Sandridge and if so, whose daughter is she? Thanks.
58.html Harriett March 15, 2001
I don't have much new of either family, Sandridge or Graves other than what I had in Nov. 2000. I notice people are asking about a Hastings Sandridge. The only Hastings I can find is that Peter Eads and Sarah Henderson Sandridge - d/o Stephen - had a son named Hastings Eads born around 1811. Perhaps she named a son after a relative that we have no record of yet.
59.html Harriett March 15, 2001
I made a mistake on my previous posting. It was Lucy's brother Rueben Sandridge, not an uncle, that married Justine Keaton. I am sorry for this mistake.
60.html Linda Nelson March 15, 2001
I have since ( the date of my previous posting on Lucy Sandridge) found out that the Lucy Sandridge that married Tarleton Brown was the daughter of William Sandridge b: 1754 d: 1787 and Susan Dedman b: 1760 d: 1832 ( after William's death, Susan married a Daniel Maupin). Lucy born in 1778 was the daughter of Stephen Sandridge and Sarah "Sallie" Henderson.
Lucy born in 1778 was the daughter of Stephen Sandridge and Sarah "Sallie" Henderson.

"The Lucy Sandridge that married Tarlton Brown WAS the daughter of Stephen Sandridge. Should have more faith in my own research, instead of letting others tell me my source was incorrect.".
