The Cabell Foundation, Inc.
A Virginia Memorial and Genealogical Association

Welcome to the Cabell Foundation's Website

The Cabell Foundation, Inc., is an association of descendants of Dr. William Cabell, who emigrated from Frome, Somerset County, England to Virginia in 1723.

The Foundation's purpose is to foster family ties and knowledge of Dr. Cabell's family, help preserve original family graveyards, document family history and genealogy, and preserve important Cabell documents and other memorabilia.

As a small family foundation, our primary concerns are our quarterly newsletter, our annual meeting, and graveyard maintenance in the original landholdings of Dr. Cabell, in and around Nelson County, Virginia.
