More information can be found at: Person:FAWCETT, Albert (1806 - )
ALBERT FAWCETT, the eldest son of Charles and Peggy Fawcett, was born in Bath County, Virginia in 1806 (1880 census). A County Court Order (October 9, 1838) records "a deed of trust from Albert Fawcett to Thomas B. Wallace for the benefit of Andrew Braden, guardian of William H. McClung". Albert is not listed in the 1840 federal census. An Albert Fawcett is listed in District 8 of Princess Anne County, Virginia in the 1850 census (p. 134). By 1860 Albert married Bellie, and soon after their children were born: Nannie J. Fawcett (4/8/1860) and Charles W. Fawcett (1862/63; Birth Register 1853-70:22). They probably lived near Green Valley in Bath County . In 1857 and again in 1866 Albert transferred some of his land to John H. Fawcett. Albert Fawcett made his last land transaction in 1877. The 74 year old Albert Fawcett was living in/near Williamsville with his sister (Jane), and his children (Nancy J, age 20; and Charles W., age 18) in 1880 (Bath Co VA ED28, sheet 15, line 7). No Fawcett graves are known from Bath County.
