The Cabell Family Society’s Newsletter

The Cabell Family Society publishes a newsletter for its members four times a year. Subscriptions are available to libraries and institutions for $20 per year.

In the September 2023 newsletter you will find information about:

  • W. Horsley Gantt and the Spanish Influenza of 1918-1919
  • Sharswood Plantation – Man unknowingly buys former plantation house where his ancestors were enslaved. Watch this video from 60 Minutes to learn more.
  • Summer Cabell Reunion – 64 descendants of Mayo and Clara Cabell meet for a four day reunion to celebrate their common heritage.

In addition to these articles, you can also find updates to the Cabell database (births, marriages, and deaths).

If you have comments on the newsletter or have suggestions for future articles, or if you are a member of The Cabell Family Society and have a change of address, please email
