Twentieth Century Cabells and their Kin

9781889663166: Twentieth Century Cabells and their Kin
From the Author:

This 684-page book is the long-awaited -- and equally long-discussed (at least in the Cabell family) -- follow-on to Alexander Brown's "The Cabells and Their Kin." The book includes biographies of Bishop William Cabell Brown, the author James Branch Cabell, General William Lewis Cabell C.S.A, ("Old Tige" and four-time mayor of Dallas), General Charles P. Cabell, USAF, and over 500 other Cabells and their kin from every walk of life. The biographies are heavily indexed on military service, education, church affiliation, hobbies, etc. In addition to the biographies, over 9500 Cabells, their spouses and descendants are organized in computer-prepared descendancy charts, plus indexes to their own marriages and their parents marriages. The book is beautifully bound in red, with a Cabell seal gold embossed on the cover. The book is also cross indexed with Alexander Brown's "The Cabells and Their Kin", so that the researcher can trace some Cabell lines across four centuries.

From Chapter III - Dr. William Cabell and Elizabeth Burks in America: So the mystery of Dr. Cabell and his tradition of service as a surgeon in the Royal Navy deepens. ...for those readers who prefer to stay with this scenario, we can add the tantalizing prospect that he did come to America on the Enterprise. As contemporary readers know -- and it is hoped that readers in the 21st century and beyond will find in history -- an extremely popular television series in the late 20th century was , which chronicled the fictional adventures of the Starship Enterprise as it "boldly goes where no one has gone before." How fitting if Dr. Cabell did arrive on the H.M.S. Enterprise!
