Membership in the Society

Full membership in the Cabell Family Society is limited to direct descendants of Dr. William Cabell and his wife, Elizabeth Burks Cabell. Every applicant must establish his or her descent from Dr. William Cabell and Elizabeth Burks Cabell to the satisfaction of the Board of Directors.

The Society welcomes non-descendants who have an interest in the Cabell family to request associate membership. Associate members are approved by the Board of Directors.

Dues for Full or Associate membership are $20 per year and include a subscription to the Society’s newsletter. The current membership chairperson is Katherine Cabell Terlesky. If you have membership questions, you can contact her via email.

We provide an electronic version of our membership application. You are strongly encouraged to email the membership chair for assistance in filling out this form.
