" I Remember "


The Dungee * * * and Adkins families have a very rich and strong

background that reaches far into the past.


To look at the affluence achieved by these two black families

in a time period that social, economic and political oppression

over black men and women was prevalent in all of American society

is to see that these were people who endured it all and beat the

odds. What a lesson to be learned, by this, for future



The following histories of the Dungee and Adkins families move

back five generations.


The first part, "Reflections," eloquently depicts through

the eyes and memories of Aleatha Adkins Jordan, the family

struggles, strengths, and triumphs that she observed while growing

up as a part of the Dungee and Adkins families in Middlesex County,

Virginia. "Reflections" is summed up beautifully with a

declaration of the love of God, which has carried Aleatha and the

two families through the years up to this first family reunion and



The second part, "Family Roots," connects family memories

through documental research. The research finds relevance in

family stories passed down through the years by way of U.S. Census

Records, National Archives Civil War Records, county courthouse

land records, interviews, and other means. A great deal of

research remains to be done.


The Dungee name is often spelled the following ways: Dungy,

Dungie, Dungey, Dunjee. Early census takers and other recorders

had a tendency to spell it the way it sounded to them because many

people could not read or write during those days. Even today,

record keepers tend to spell it in various ways.


There is also a great variation in the Ackes name. For similar

reasons, we found Ackes on various records to be spelled, Ackiss,

Ackes, and Ackies. However, we are all the same family. The

variation to Adkins from Ackes is a remarkable change.

" I Remember "


To the Dungee & Adkins Family:


As we gather to celebrate this first Family Reunion, I would

like to chat a while with you about what I remember about my

childhood days in Middlesex County, Virginia.


My birth certificate states that I was born November 10, 1924,

Mary Aleatha Ackes, to Mason Ackes and Elton Dungee Ackes, at

Warner, Virginia in Middlesex County.


First in my memory, I can see my mother as she went about her

daily tasks in the house that she and my father had built on the

Dungee land in the back of my grandmother Alice's house. It was a

two story house with three large bedrooms, two bedrooms upstairs

with a hall. On the first floor, one bedroom, a living room, a

hall, a dining room, kitchen and a porch to the side of the kitchen

and dining room area.


I remember that my mother had a light complexion and that she

had some freckles on her face. I later found out that freckles

were a Dungee family trait.


I remember seeing my mother in the kitchen cooking a lot of

goodies for us. I remember the biscuits and the blackberry

preserves she made for us. I also remember the molasses that my

father made from the cane he grew on the farm.

  • My father was a good farmer and grew lots of vegetables for us

    to pick. A few of them were: tomatoes, string beans, corn,

    potatoes and a lot of other things that I cannot remember. He also

    raised hogs for the meat we ate.


    Times were hard during those days and I remember that

    sometimes I would awake in the morning and my mother would not be

    there. She had taken my younger brother Earl, out to pick

    blackberries. She sometimes sold some of them to get money for the



    I remember my first pair of black patent leather shoes. My

    mother had traded some chickens and eggs to a grocery store at

    Churchview, Virginia, for the shoes for my sisters, Uvelia * * * *,

    Lucille and I. She had also bought material for our dresses. She made

    most of the clothes for us.


    My brother. Earl, liked church so he walked with my sister,

    Uvelia, and I through the woods and up the road to Mt. Zion Baptist

    Church, on Mother's Day. It was the same year my mother died on

    September 11, 1932. I remember that the same day that my mother

    died, my brother Wilber^s oldest daughter, Edith Viola, was born.


    I remember that my oldest brother Cary, his wife Beatrice and

    his two boys William and Carl lived in the house with my mother and



    I remember that my oldest sister, Adell, and my brother,

    Edward, had gone up to the city to work. I remember that they came

    home when my mother died.

My brother, Wilber, and his wife. Magnolia, and his daughter

lived with his in-laws at Remilk, Va.


After my mother died, my brother Earl, my sisters, Uvelia,

Lucille and I were left at home with my father and my brother Cary

and his wife and family.


I remember the orchard at our home on the Dungee farm. There

were four cherry trees that we had named for ourselves and we used

to climb them. I remember eating some of the cherries before they

were ripe and got a pain in my stomach. There were also peach and

apple trees. My mother used to can the peaches and apples and make

peach preserves for us.


I remember that there was a special golden delicious apple

tree that my mother used to sit under in the heat of the day after

working in the garden. The tree was just a short distance from the

kitchen door.


My grandmother, Alice Graves* Dungee, lived in the old house my

grandfather Elias Dungee had built before the Civil War. My

grandfather Elias Dungee had been married before and had two boys

by his first wife. Their names were Thomas Dungee * and Joseph Brown

Dungee. He married my grandmother in 1890.


I remember the old two-story house that had a kitchen with a

mantel over the fire place. One room where the stairs went up to

the second floor had only a dirt floor. The roof was of wood

shingles. Sometimes when the wind blew real hard, the old house

used to sway a little.

I remember talking with my grandmother, who could not see very

well, as we sat in the doorway of the old house. I remember that

there were a lot of large rocks around the door and that they

glittered in the sunlight and sometimes at night when the moon was

bright. I often wonder now, what kind of stones they were.


I remember the big black walnut tree in the back yard of the

old house. It was the largest tree I had ever seen. We used to

use the walnut meat to make candy with the molasses my father made.

Also, there used to be a chestnut tree on the property because on

the side of the fields, there were fences made from the trees. My

father told me that they were put there by my grandfather, Elias,

maybe before the Civil War. We used to pick blackberries along the

side of the fence.


My brother, Cary, said that most of the chestnut trees had

started dying when he was a boy. Some kind of insect had attacked



I remember a special apple tree my grandmother called a "wine

sap". She said my grandfather had ordered them from out West and

planted them in the orchard with the other fruit trees.


My grandmother, Alice, talked a lot about her parents and my

grandfather. She told me that her father, Beverly Graves, was

killed by a man when she was a very young girl. I think the

experience must have affected her all of her life because she often

spoke about it.

My grandfather, Elias Dungee, was a Civil War veteran. I

remember the old musket gun and the sword that he fought with,

hanging over the door in the hallway of the old house.


I remember that there was a walnut drop leaf table that my

grandmother said had been ordered by my grandfather from a merchant

up North, when grandfather operated the business on the property on

Route 17, at Warner, Virginia, in the 1870s. I remember that she

kept a blue mason jar on the mantel in the kitchen with a lock of

my grandfather's hair in it. She did not have a picture of him, so

she kept the hair to remember him. She also had a lock of her

daughter, Lilly's hair in it. Lilly died as a young girl.


I remember the last time I saw my mother's brother, Elias B.

Dungee. It must have been in the year of 1930 or 1931, because it

was before my mother died in 1932. He came home to visit my

grandmother. I remember him standing in the doorway between the

kitchen and dining room of our house while talking to my mother.

I remember that he had a birthmark on one side of his face. He was

living in New York at that time.


I remember that my mother's half brother Thomas Dungee, had a

daughter named Arnetta Dungee Hackey, who lived in Philadelphia.

I remember that in the spring of 1933, she came home to visit my

grandmother and to claim her share of the Dungee property in

Gloucester, Virginia. * She had a son named Walter Hackey. I

remember also that my father told me that my mother had a half

brother named Joseph Brown Dungee, who had a share in the property

in Gloucester, but he never came to claim it. The last we heard of

him, he was living in Baltimore, Maryland. I was told that the

land was sold for unpaid taxes as late as the 1940s.


I remember walking to school on the road that led from our

home place, pass the land that my grandfather owned on route 17 at

Warner in Middlesex County, and I remember the old store building

standing there where he operated a business in the 1870s. I

remember that his grave was on the side of the road on the property

leading to route 17.


I remember going with my brother. Earl, and my sister, Uvelia,

to put flowers on his grave on Memorial Day for my grandmother.


My grandmother told me that my grandfather's father was named

Elijah Dungee and that he had two sons, my grandfather, Elias and

a younger brother, named Elijah, Jr.


The property my grandfather lived on was divided between him

and his brother Elijah, Jr. I remember that I used to hear my

older brothers talk about a cousin named Robert Dungee. Robert was

Elijah Dungee, Jr.'s son and Robert had a son named Prosor Dungee.

I am sure that there were others but I do not know their names. I

remember that there was a Dungee family cemetery on the property of

Elijah Dungee. My older brothers knew the location of the



In 1944, when I married and moved to King and Queen County,

Mrs. Mary E. Dungee, who was then my neighbor told me that the

Dungees in King and Queen were related to my mother. She told me

that a man named Henry Dungee, who used to live in King William

County * moved to King and Queen and that he was the father of my

great grandfather Elijah Dungee and the father of her husband's

father Thomas Dungee. I have not been able to find out anymore of

the details. Mrs. Dungee is now deceased, however, I do know that

my father told me that Thomas Dungee of King and Queen was heir to

some of the Dungee Family property in Gloucester County in the



In 1978, Mrs. Louise Gray, a historian, came to talk to me

while I was serving as clerk of the Second Mt. Olive Baptist Church

at Little Plymouth, Virginia. She was writing the History of the

Lower King and Queen Baptist Church. During our discussion, she

told me that in 1843, a black carpenter named Elijah Dungee came

from Middlesex to help build the addition to the white church which

was then called Wares Church. I told her that I thought he was my

great grandfather and I later found out that he was.


I also found out that Elijah Dungee was one of the founders of

the Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Middlesex County, and that his

cousin, Thomas Dungee was one of the founders of the Second Mt.

Olive Baptist Church in King and Queen County about the same time

in 1867. {John Dungee1700's} ?!?!?!


My grandmother, Alice, had a sister named Ora Graves Burse

and a brother named Augustus Graves who used to visit my

grandmother at the old house. Aunt Ora had seven children, six

boys and one girl named Emma. I remember Emma because she had a

birth mark on one side of her face like my Uncle Elias Dungee.


I do not know just how many children my Great Uncle Augustus

had. I knew he had a daughter named Lucellen Graves Billups and a

younger daughter named Lillian Graves Boyd. Lillian lived with my

grandmother for a while.


My grandmother's father, Beverly Graves, was married to an

Indian woman *. Her name was Keziah Rowe Graves. I remember that my

grandmother had long straight black hair that came down to her

waist. When I visited her, she would let me comb her hair. She

was of Indian heritage * and she looked like her ancestors. My

grandmother's father, Beverly Graves had a brother named James

Graves. I knew two of his sons, Camb Graves and Rev. James Graves.

I know some of the children of two of his daughters who now live in

Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York and many cities all in

the USA. We are definitely related to the Graves family.


My father. Mason Ackes, was a good farmer and carpenter and

worked very hard to make a living for us. My father never learned

to read and write, but you would be amazed at how well he could

figure and count. You see he never had the opportunity to get an



I remember during the year of 1936, after my grandmother died,

I was living with Mrs. Elmira Holmes. She was a school teacher,

and she needed to attend summer school, so she took me to live with

Mrs. Susan Robinson, a very old lady in the community. While I was

there, I learned some things about my father that I did not know.

Mrs. Robinson told me that she had raised my father. She told me

that his parents, Johnson and Lucy Ackes had both died while they

were living on the Blakey Farm. My father was two young to work

for his keep, so when he was about five years old, she took him

home with her. He was born in 1880.


My father's parents, Johnson Ackes and Lucy Jones Ackes were

slaves on the plantation near Saluda, * called Clifton and after the

Civil War, the plantation was called Blakey. I have been told that

my grandfather, Johnson Ackes, came to the Clifton Plantation from

a plantation in North Carolina. I have also been told that he came

to the North Carolina Plantation from the West Indies.


My father's brother, Tyier Ackes, lived on the back road,

Route 614 in Middlesex, pass the church called Forest Chapel. He

was a farmer and grew lots of vegetables. He had a large fruit

orchard. Uncle Tyier had lots of children. All of them are now

deceased but he still has some grandchildren and great

grandchildren who live in Middlesex County and other cities of the



I remember that I used to walk pass his house on the back road

on my way to school when I was living with my brother, Cary, in the

house of my father's Uncle Cornelius Jones. Uncle Nellius, as he

was fondly called, was the brother of my father's mother Lucy Jones


I remember that one Sunday, before my mother died in the early

1930s, my brother Cary took my father and mother to visit my

father's Uncle Cornelius Jones. I remember that he was very old

and had a long white beard, and long white hair down to his

shoulders. I have been told that he lived to be 115 years old. He

had also been a slave on the Clifton Plantation.


My father told me that he had two sisters named Mary and Lucy.

Mary lived in Maryland and was a nurse at the Johns Hopkins

Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. Her married name was Mary Gross.


I remember seeing my aunt Mary Gross, one time in 1937, when

I was 13 years old. My cousin Johnson Ackes, who was Uncle Tyier's

son, introduced her to me at Antioch Baptist Church in Saluda, Va.

She had been home visiting that year. She asked me for my name and

address and when I gave it to her, she looked at it and told me

that I was not spelling the family name correctly. She told me

that the last name was spelled ACKES, not

ADKINS. I will always remember this.


My father's sister, Lucy, lived in King George County, Va.

Lucy had a son named Daniel Lockley, Jr. who lived at Christ

Church, Va. I remember that in the early 1960s, while my father

was living with me that Daniel Jr. came to visit my father. Daniel

Lockley, Jr. had a son named Daniel Lockley III who now lives in

Middlesex County. He also has other children living in various cities.

of the USA

I lived in Middlesex County most of my younger life. I came

in contact with lots of people who knew my family. They told me

that my grandfather, Elias Dungee, was a very stately and

prosperous man in his day and he owned the first black business in

the county.


They told me that my grandmother, Alice, was a Christian woman

who loved the church and that she used to walk five miles one way

to church on Sunday. They told me that my mother, Elton, was a

very quiet and pretty lady.


I have lots of memories of my childhood. I often reflect on

them now.


I remember that I was in many homes. My sister Lucille was

living with a lady named Hester Thornton for a while and my sister

Uvelia was living in Philadelphia. My brother Earl was in school

at the R.I. Academy.


I was always fortunate to have lived with people who had good

Christian values. I remember the lady who introduced me to the

Christian life in the year of 1935. While living in the home of

Mrs. Etta Johnson, my brother Wilber had taken me there to help

care for his two small children, Edith and Ann because their mother

was sick. One day, Mrs. Johnson asked me if I knew what it meant

to be a Christian. I was ten years old. I told her that I did not

know, so she explained to me that I needed to let Jesus come into

my life. In August of 1935, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and

Savior and found him to be a mighty fortress in my life.  

I remember living in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Harris.

Mrs. Harris was a school teacher and she taught me many good

things about life.


I remember, fondly, the loving care my older sister Adell, and

my older brothers gave us. They always came to visit me, wherever

I was, letting me know that I had not been forgotten. They

supported me, financially, as much as they could.


We were a loving family, all together as one.


I hope today that each of you will continue to love one

these three, but the greatest of these is charity.

Johnson Ackes and Lucy Jones Ackes


Johnson and Lucy Ackes, who were slaves on the Clifton

Plantation in Middlesex County, had four children, Johnson Tyier,

Mary, Lucy and Mason Ackes. The Clifton Plantation was located in

Middlesex County, near the Dragon Run. It is now known as

Blakett's Farm. Going south on route 17, Blakett's Farm is located

on the right side of the highway.


At this time, we have no additional information on Johnson and

Lucy Ackes. However, Lucy Jones Ackes had a brother named

Cornelius Jones who was also a slave on the Clifton Plantation

until after the Civil War. We estimate Cornelius' time of birth to

be about 1815, because he was around 115-years-old at the time of

his death in the early 1930s.


According to Mrs. H.R. Perkinson of Topping, Virginia (a

descendant of the owners of Clifton Plantation), Cornelius Jones

came to the Clifton Plantation from the Bland Plantation which was

located in the lower part of King and Queen County, near West

Point. He was transferred (or sold) to the plantation in the early

1850s. Mrs. Perkinson goes on to tell about the close friendship

that Cornelius had with her great-grandmother. The friendship

continued after his freedom and until his death in the early 1930s.

During slavery, he was in charge of milking the cows and delivering

the milk to the house. The milk jug that he used for collecting

and distributing the milk was given to him by one of the plantation

owners when he was freed. He kept it and returned it to Mrs.

Perkinson 's great-grandmother before his death. Mrs. Perkinson now

has the milk jug in her possession.


After the slaves were freed, Cornelius owned a piece of land

across the road from the farm. There he reared his family.


Cornelius Jones had three sons and two daughters. They were:

Sam, Lewis, Tom, Elizabeth and Hattie. Tom Jones had two children;

their names we do not know. Sam had a daughter named Elena. Lewis

Jones, whose wife's name was Lottie Larimore, had two children,

Malomy and Franklin Cornelius.


One of Cornelius' sons. Rev. Tom Jones, was well-known in

Pennsylvania. Another son, Lewis was a successful merchant on

route 17 in Saluda. Lewis Jones has one surviving daughter living

in Saluda, Virginia. Her name is Malomy Ruffin and she is 91-

*More detailed information needed
**Some dates of birth dates obtained from 1840, 1850,1860, 1870 and 1880 Census Records


Elijah Dungy I
  • Born free, in 1806, in Middlesex County Virginia.


  • We believe that Elijah I is the son of Henry Dungy, who is

    listed on the 1830 Census Records as a "free-colored" head of

    household in Middlesex County. The 1830 and 1840 Census

    Records do not list the names of spouses or children living in

    a household.


  • Married Mary Ann Coles and they had two sons named, Elias and

    Elijah II.


  • Before and after the Civil War, Elijah Dungy I was a carpenter

    and a successful landowner and businessman.


  • The 1840 census records list Elijah I as a "free-colored" head

    of household in the Jamaica area of Middlesex County,



  • The 1850 census records lists Elijah Dungy as a 44-year-old

    black carpenter with a real estate value of $700. Other

    family members in the household are his wife Mary Ann, who is

    49, and two males, Elias 19, and Elijah 11.


  • The 1860 census records show Elijah Dungy's real estate value

    at $1600 and a personal property value of $600.


  • The land records in Middlesex County reveal several land

    purchases made by Elijah Dungee from 1835 to 1853.


  • February 1835: a purchase of 104 acres for the sum of $109.50,

    paid in two payments of $54.50 by January 1837. This is the

    site of the original Dungee family homestead which is located

    in an area called Warner Post Office, in Middlesex County.

    The land runs along route 603 between route 17 and route 14 in

    King and Queen County.


  • August 1843: a purchase of fifty acres for the sum of $50.00.

    The deed states "the land was bounded by the lands of John

    Bran, Henry Dungy and Lewis R. Mickleborough, to him, the said

    Elijah Dungy, his heirs".


  • April 1853: two land purchases in Middlesex County. A

    purchase of 22 1/4 acres for the sum of $89.00 and the second

    purchase of 40 acres of land for the sum of $180.00.  

  • April 1873: 166 3/4 acres of land was divided with Elijah

    Dungy's widow Nancy Dungy, (probably a second marriage after

    the death of his first wife Mary Ann) about 35 acres, and to

    Elijah and Elias his sons, about 65 3/4 acres each.


    A History of African-Americans in Middlesex County. 1646-'1992.

    by Tommy L. Bogger, Ph.D. and the Black Church Cultural

    Affairs Committee, states, "There were only two skilled free

    black artisans in the county in 1850 and they were carpenters,

    Charles Wilkes and Elijah Dungee".


  • Elijah Dungy's carpentry skill was utilized around 1833 to

    erect a new building for the predominately white church known

    as Wares Baptist Church in King and Queen County.


  • Elijah Dungy was an officer, founding member and later a

    preacher of the Mt. Zion Baptist Church.1


Elias Dungy I

  • Born free, in 1831, to Mary Ann Coles and Elijah Dungy I.


  • In 1854 married Julia Dungy and had two sons, Joseph Brown

    Dungy and Thomas Dungy.


  • Elias Dungy was a soldier in the Civil War.


1 According to the History of the Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Middlesex County. which was published in 1994, Mt. Zion Church was established in 1867. The church's deacon boar traces its heritage to the Hermitage Baptist Church, a historically white church. In fact, the book states, "as early as 1841, there were six black deacons in Hermitage Baptist Church. In 1851, black members were granted use of the church once a month with Elijah Dungee and Frank, a slave, leading the meetings." On December 5, 1846, a committee was appointed from this group of deacons "to instruct blacks at convenient locations". Among those instructors was Elijah Dungee. The book goes on to explain that Elijah Dungee continued in his capacity as a church officer, helped purchase the land for the Mt. Zion Church and was licensed to preach by the time the new Mt. Zion Church was built in 1868.  
  • Elias Dungy was the first African-American merchant in

    Middlesex County. He successfully operated a store on route

    17 at Warner, Virginia, shortly after the Civil War.


  • In 1890, his second marriage was to Alice Graves Dungy. They

    had two children, Eiton Dungy and Elias B. Dungy.


    Alice Graves Dungy


    o Born to Beverly Graves and Keziah Rowe in 1868.


    o Married Elias Dungy, a 59-year-old widower, at the age of 22.


    o They had two children, Eiton I and Elias II.


  • Alice's mother, Keziah Rowe, was a full-blooded Indian.o We believe

    that Keziah Rowe, came from one of the tribes rule by Chief Powhatan,

    who spoke the Algonquian dialect.2


    o Alice Graves Dungy died on January 1, 1936.


    2 During the 1970s, Alice's grandson, the late Rev. James

    Earl Adkins' research revealed this information. Also, the

    book entitled, "A History of African-Americans in Middlesex

    County, 1646-1992" by Tommy L. Bogger, Ph.D and the Black

    Church Cultural Affairs Committee, states, "During the

    1590's, a very remarkable leader by the name of Powhatan had

    managed to bring together in a loose confederation about

    thirty different tribes who spoke the Algonquian dialect,

    and inhabited the coastal plains of Virginia from the Potomac

    River down to the present-day Norfolk Area. Powhatan's own

    residence was on the York River above Gloucester Point, and

    two subsidiary tribes inhabited present-day, Middlesex

    County". Dr. Bogger references this information from several

    books on Virginia history and Virginia Indian culture. One of

    these books is entitled. The Powhatan Indians of Virginia;

    Their Traditional Culture, by Helen C. Rountree, Ph.D. Old

    Dominion University, Norfolk, Virginia.

    We have written to Dr. Rountree for more information on

    Keziah Rowe's ancestry. However, we have not received a reply

    to date.
