  Notes for JAMES B. BOISSEAU:
Email from AS Boisseau to Anne Stiller, Jan 1999:
This James B. Boisseau was killed in the duel at Blanford Cemetery, and was
reported in newspapers across the state ( I have copies from 10 or 11
different papers)

The story runs that about the year 1820, Ellen Peniston, of Petersburg, Va., engaged herself to two young men at the same time, in a spirit of harmless coquetry, but the two gentlemen took the matter seriously enough to fight a duel over it. They were named Adams and Boisseau, and the fatal encounter took place just back of the old Blandford church, in a pine grove now marked by the graves of the Hamilton family. The two former friends fell dead at the first shot, and the vain and thoughtless girl lived to mourn their hot-headed deed the rest of her life, which continued to a ripe age. (Annals of the Fowler Family Author: Glenn D.F. Arthur Call Number: CS71.F681x, p. 149)Killed in a duel at Old Blandford Church, Petersburg, VA where he fought a man named Adams for the affections of Miss Pennister, a celebrated beauty. Both men, young college students, died almost simultaneously.

Children of D
AVID BOISSEAU and TABITHA HATCHER are:
  i.   WILLIAM E.5 BOISSEAU, b. Abt. 1800.
  Notes for WILLIAM E. BOISSEAU:
Email from AS Boisseau to Anne Stiller, Jan 1999:
Sources say that all of David's children are from his second marriage, but
his son William E. Boisseau inherits land from his grandmother, an Epes ( I
don't have the deed in front of me right now, so I don't have her first name),
in the 1830s. Also, David marries Tabitha on December 24, 1801 meaning that
William would be born at the earliest in late August 1802, but he graduated
William & Mary in 1818, a three year school at the time. He would have
graduated at 16 years old, impossible, since you had to be at least 15 to
attend.
