Welcome to The Cabell Family Society, Inc.

The Cabell Family Society, Inc., is an association of descendants of Dr. William Cabell and his wife Elizabeth Burks, who emigrated from Frome, Somerset County, England to Virginia around 1723.

The Society’s purpose is to foster family ties and knowledge of Dr. Cabell’s family, help preserve original family graveyards, document family history and genealogy, and preserve important Cabell documents and other memorabilia.

The Society was started in 1954 by three Cabell cousins (Mary Groesbeck Cabell, Randolph McGuire Cabell and Mayo Cabell) as The Cabell Memorial Society to care for the Liberty Hall Graveyard and had over 100 members by 1957.

As a small family organization, our primary commitments are our quarterly newsletter, our annual meeting, and graveyard maintenance in the original landholdings of Dr. Cabell, in and around Nelson County, Virginia.
