My name is Margaret (Peggy) Vaughan McKinney and I was born (1936) and raised in Portsmouth VA. I have been doing genealogy research for 55 years.
You have a great web site, but I did want to correct and add some information for you.
Thomas Parker Winborne and John Richard Winborne (Brothers) married two sisters in a double Wedding in IW Co VA (not Nansemond Co [as this researccher had recorded]) on the 29 Jan 1973 (IW Co, VA Marriage Reg A 1854-1900 p23) - Thomas Parker Winborne married Martha Sarah Harrison and John Richard Winborne married Annie E (Angenetta Evalina) (Angie) Harrison. Angie was born 30 June 1858 IW Co, VA and died 1925 in Nansemond Co, VA. I do not know where she is buried. She had at least 5 children that married.
