Mary Frances Carey’s Genealogy Reports

Mary Frances (Trader) Carey (1923-2019), was a retired Accomack County high school teacher who became a certified genealogist in 1981 and spent an additional 20 plus years tracing family histories and recording local tombstones. Her book Tombstone Inscriptions of Upper Accomack County, VA was printed in 1995. All her ancestors on all sides were from the Eastern Shore of Virginia going back to the early 1600s. She once told M.K. Miles to always start research on a family history project by visiting the E.S.P.L. at Accomac and ask Dr. Miles Barnes to show you the local genealogy reports that have been donated to the library by past genealogists, such as Mark Lewis. M.K. always followed her advice and also visited her to see what she had on the families he was working on. The more he used her files the more he realized that her work was more accurate and detailed than many of the files at the library. On a later visit with her, she asked him “What should I do with my files once I no longer need them?” M.K. suggested that she donate them to the library so that the next generation of genealogists could use her files as she used those of Mark Lewis and others. She responded, “Can you take care of that for me?” M.K. agreed. Eager to make them publicly available in her memory, M.K. has scanned 52 of her reports which are now available for download here.
