Title: "Virginia, Marriages 1740-1850," (index-only)
Publication: <i>Ancestry</i>, citing Dodd, Jordan R., et al., <i>Early American Marriages: Virginia to 1850</i>, Precision Indexing Publishers, Bountiful, Utah
Note: William were both listed in Amherst County in 1800. Jane, Tandy, and William may have been the oldest children of Susannah Dempsey. Both Jane and Tandy's families lived in the Rockbridge County, Virginia, according to the census of 1810 and 1820.
The breakthrough on the children of Tandy Dempsey came from Mary Woolls.
Is Tandy a possibly nickname for Andrew? I believe this is an error made by an earlier researcher: confusing Andrew G. Dempsey and Tandy Dempsey.
BIRTH: Tandy's year of birth range has been estimated using the following records: 1830 (Logan) in 50-60 category = 1770-1779 1820 (Rockbridge) in 26 & under 45 category = 1776-1784 1810 (Rockbridge) in 26 & under 45 category = 1776-1784 1800 (Amherst) tax list (21 or older) = bef. 1779

1824: G. T. Swain, "History of Logan County", states "The territory of Logan as it exists today was part of Fincastle County from 1738 to 1776, then a part of Montgomery until 1790, a part of Wythe until 1792, a part of Kanawha until 1809, when it became a part of Cabell and remained as such until it was organized into a county seat in 1823. The Act, creating Logan county passed January 12, 1824. Logan county was cut off parts of the counties of Cabell, Kanawha, Giles and Tazewell and included within it's boundaries all of the present counties of Boone, Fayette, Lincoln, Mercer, Mingo, McDowell, Raleigh, Wayne, and Wyoming."
1824: Logan County, (West) Virginia, Tax List Tandy Dempsey does not appear on this list. I assume that he is still in Rockbridge County, Virginia.
Tandy Dempsey appears to have moved from Rockbridge County, Virginia, to Logan County, (West) Virginia, between 1824-1827.
