When she was 55, her father, Edward Mitchell Eppes III, died on 15 March 2001 at Lively, Lancaster County, Virginia, at age 78.3

Edward Mitchell Eppes III's obituary appeared in the newspaper on 16 March 2001. It listed Janie M Will, Anne Ainslie Eppes, Margaret Mitchell Eppes and Theodore M. Curtis Jr. as surviving him.4

Edward Mitchell Eppes III's obituary read:
Though he served as staff physician on the city's payroll and at The Richmond Times-Dispatch and the Richmond News Leader, Dr. Edward Mitchell Eppes III remained first and foremost a dedicated family doctor.

"He put so much time into his feelings for people," said his daughter, Margaret Eppes Curtis of Kilmarnock. "He just had that people feeling."

Dr. Eppes, of Lively, formerly of Richmond, died Thursday. He was 78. He was the retired staff physician for Richmond Newspapers Inc. and for both the Richmond Bureau of Fire and the Richmond Bureau of Police.

Rarely pulling punches, Dr. Eppes preferred that his patients had all the facts about their health.

This, his daughter said, meant that he often told it like it was, even when the truth hurt a bit. "He was just always honest," she said. "If you were just way overweight, he would say 'You're too fat.'

"That's just the way he was," she said, and "his patients loved it."

He also had an understanding side when the job called for it, said one Times-Dispatch veteran recalling his first encounter with Dr. Eppes.

Days before starting work, the young reporter was warned by a co-worker that an existing medical condition had delayed his own first day on the job by weeks.

Knowing that he would soon need treatment for the same chronic ailment, the veteran was sweating bullets before his exam with Dr. Eppes. He could ill afford either the cost of treatment or to miss any paychecks.

Once in the Dr. Eppes' office, the young reporter took a shot at playing it cool. "He told me to cough and I sort of made this little sound, holding back."

He recalled the doctor's skeptical look - his cover had been blown. Just when it looked like the gig was up, "he looked at me and he said, 'You'll make it till next payday.' "

A native of Richmond's North Side, Dr. Eppes graduated from the University of Richmond before attending the Medical College of Virginia.

He served in the Navy, stationed at Bethesda Naval Hospital and at a military hospital in Guam, before returning to Richmond to enter private family practice.

Dr. Eppes retired in 1985 to devote time to his favorite pastimes: hunting and fishing.

In addition to his daughter, Dr. Eppes is survived by his wife, Janie Will Eppes; another daughter, Anne E. Cowdrey; a stepdaughter, Margret Johnston Magill; and two stepsons, Jack Kelly Johnston Jr. and Matthew Will Johnston, all of Richmond.

A memorial service will be held Saturday at 3 p.m. at St. Mary's White Chapel Episcopal Church in Lively.

Curtis Jr. as surviving him He was also survived by a stepdaughter, Margret Johnston Magill; and two stepsons, Jack Kelly Johnston Jr. and Matthew Will Johnston, all of Richmond.8

Edward's obituary read:
Though he served as staff physician on the city's payroll and at The Richmond Times-Dispatch and the Richmond News Leader, Dr. Edward Mitchell Eppes III remained first and foremost a dedicated family doctor.

"He put so much time into his feelings for people," said his daughter, Margaret Eppes Curtis of Kilmarnock. "He just had that people feeling."

Dr. Eppes, of Lively, formerly of Richmond, died Thursday. He was 78. He was the retired staff physician for Richmond Newspapers Inc. and for both the Richmond Bureau of Fire and the Richmond Bureau of Police.

Rarely pulling punches, Dr. Eppes preferred that his patients had all the facts about their health.

This, his daughter said, meant that he often told it like it was, even when the truth hurt a bit. "He was just always honest," she said. "If you were just way overweight, he would say 'You're too fat.'

"That's just the way he was," she said, and "his patients loved it."

He also had an understanding side when the job called for it, said one Times-Dispatch veteran recalling his first encounter with Dr. Eppes.

Days before starting work, the young reporter was warned by a co-worker that an existing medical condition had delayed his own first day on the job by weeks.

Knowing that he would soon need treatment for the same chronic ailment, the veteran was sweating bullets before his exam with Dr. Eppes. He could ill afford either the cost of treatment or to miss any paychecks.

Once in the Dr. Eppes' office, the young reporter took a shot at playing it cool. "He told me to cough and I sort of made this little sound, holding back."

He recalled the doctor's skeptical look - his cover had been blown. Just when it looked like the gig was up, "he looked at me and he said, 'You'll make it till next payday.' "

A native of Richmond's North Side, Dr. Eppes graduated from the University of Richmond before attending the Medical College of Virginia.

He served in the Navy, stationed at Bethesda Naval Hospital and at a military hospital in Guam, before returning to Richmond to enter private family practice.

Dr. Eppes retired in 1985 to devote time to his favorite pastimes: hunting and fishing.

In addition to his daughter, Dr. Eppes is survived by his wife, Janie Will Eppes; another daughter, Anne E. Cowdrey; a stepdaughter, Margret Johnston Magill; and two stepsons, Jack Kelly Johnston Jr. and Matthew Will Johnston, all of Richmond.

A memorial service will be held Saturday at 3 p.m. at St. Mary's White Chapel Episcopal Church in Lively.

Edward Mitchell Eppes Sr

M, #194, b. 15 June 1868, d. 5 June 1927
Last Edited3 Apr 2015
RelationshipGreat-grandfather of Constance Murray Chappell
ChartsPedigree Chart - Mary Horry Eppes
Descendants Chart - Edward Mitchell Eppes Sr
Who was Edward Mitchell Eppes?

He was born in 1868, shortly after the Civil war ended, into a farming family who were struggling to come to terms with the loss of their slaves. He was his father's second son. The first two children born to his parents were two girls who only lived a couple of years at most before passing away. First, was Margaret Ann Eppes in 1860 (and died in 1862), and then Roberta Francis Eppes, in 1863 (and died in 1864).

On the 1860 Census, his father's real estate was worth $7,800 and his personal property was worth $6,550. In the 1870 Census, there was a stark difference: his real estate was valued at $4,000, and his personal property, at $125. The majority of the personal property in 1860 was probably his slaves. New Kent County was also the location of many battles during the Civil War. The court house and its records were burned down twice, making research into this county difficult. Life and homes in New Kent County were rebuilding when he was born.

John Ganaway Eppes, the oldest brother, born in 1865, settled in Richmond. Temple C. Eppes, the third son, settled in Newport News and worked in the shipyards. Nancy Allen Eppes, the only surviving sister and last child, married and lived in Portsmouth, which was not far from her brother Temple.

How did he learn his occupation?

Edward was a bookbinder, which back then meant he hand-sewed books together or made custom book covers, possibly with art work, so that, in a rich man's library, all books matched.

How did he meet and woo his wife, Mary?

Mary Shubrick Horry was born in South Carolina and lived there with her family. Scarlet fever struck and killed her 35-year-old mother in 1878. In 1880, Mary was enumerated in the census with her father and some of her siblings in Jasper County, South Carolina. Her father, Edward Shubrick Horry, fell on financial hard times and she was sent to live with her mother's sister Elizabeth Webb Lamar, otherwise known as Bessie Lamar, and family. Her other younger siblings were sent to other family members.

Her uncle, Abner Whatley Lamar, was a Baptist minister and they moved around a lot. She was in Galveston Texas in May 1892 where she received a letter from her father. Her father passed away later that year.

Mary was living in Pennsylvania by the time they married in October 1898.

When their first child was born in Aug 1899, Edward and Mary were living in North Carolina. They were still living there at the time of the 1900 Census on 1 Jul 1900. But when Horry, the first daughter, was born in Aug 1901, they were living in Richmond.

Did his occupation require that he move around?

He was known to be an alcoholic and yet the last seven years of his life was lived during Prohibition. Did he go sneaking around to find it then?

Edward Mitchell Eppes Sr was born on 15 June 1868 at New Kent County, Virginia.1 He was the son of John Temple Eppes and Mary C. Garthright.

John Ganaway Eppes and Edward Mitchell Eppes Sr appeared in the 1870 census as a son of John Temple Eppes Tunstall's Station, Black Creek Township, New Kent County, Virginia, 13 August 1870. He was listed as Edward M Epps, a white male age 1, at home, born in Virginia.2

John Ganaway Eppes, Edward Mitchell Eppes Sr and Temple Carter Eppes appeared in the 1880 census as a son of John Temple Eppes on 4 June 1880 at Black Creek Township, New Kent County, Virginia. He was listed as Edward M Eppes, age 11, born in Virginia.3

In 1891,John Temple Eppes lived at 118 North 20th Street, Richmond, Virginia. Also living in the house were Mary C Garthright Eppes, Edward Mitchell Eppes Sr, Temple Carter Eppes and John Ganaway Eppes. His occupation was listed as bookbinder in the city directory.4

When he was 30, his father, John Temple Eppes, died on 3 July 1898 at Allen's Siding, Henrico County, Virginia, Allen's Siding is where the train passed by, near the airport and on the way to the mill.

Mitchell was a mill owner and his son married a Turner.

--Info given me from Uncle Ed Eppes Jr. Who is Mitchell? Was that what he was called?1

Edward Mitchell Eppes Sr married Mary Shubrick Horry, daughter of Edward Shubrick Horry and Mattie Caroline Webb, on 25 October 1898 at Dr. A. W.

Lamar, 538 George St., Norristown, PA by her uncle, Dr. Lamar. Edward was 32 and she was 26.

Her uncle's full name was Abner Whatley Lamar. His wife's name is Bessie Webb and they had (at least) two sons, Whatley and Landrum Lamar.

I have a photo of Horry Eppes Chappell and Whatley and Landrum Lamar taken in FL on her honeymoon trip and the photo states that these are her cousins.5

When he was 30, his mother, Mary C Garthright Eppes, died on 23 February 1899 at 426 Lincoln Street, Portsmouth, Virginia, from pneumonia.6,1

Jane E Eppes married Wlliam F Gunn between 1851 and 1860. I assume she married after 1850 and before 1860 because Jane E. Eppes is listed with her family in 1850 and not in 1860. Her married name was Jane E Eppes Gunn.
There is a John Gathright, age 40, next door to Jane E. (Eppes) Gunn. Is there a relationship?

This, his daughter said, meant that he often told it like it was, even when the truth hurt a bit. "He was just always honest," she said. "If you were just way overweight, he would say 'You're too fat.'

"That's just the way he was," she said, and "his patients loved it."

He also had an understanding side when the job called for it, said one Times-Dispatch veteran recalling his first encounter with Dr. Eppes.

Days before starting work, the young reporter was warned by a co-worker that an existing medical condition had delayed his own first day on the job by weeks.

Knowing that he would soon need treatment for the same chronic ailment, the veteran was sweating bullets before his exam with Dr. Eppes. He could ill afford either the cost of treatment or to miss any paychecks.

Once in the Dr. Eppes' office, the young reporter took a shot at playing it cool. "He told me to cough and I sort of made this little sound, holding back."

He recalled the doctor's skeptical look - his cover had been blown. Just when it looked like the gig was up, "he looked at me and he said, 'You'll make it till next payday.' "

A native of Richmond's North Side, Dr. Eppes graduated from the University of Richmond before attending the Medical College of Virginia.

He served in the Navy, stationed at Bethesda Naval Hospital and at a military hospital in Guam, before returning to Richmond to enter private family practice.

Dr. Eppes retired in 1985 to devote time to his favorite pastimes: hunting and fishing.

In addition to his daughter, Dr. Eppes is survived by his wife, Janie Will Eppes; another daughter, Anne E. Cowdrey; a stepdaughter, Margret Johnston Magill; and two stepsons, Jack Kelly Johnston Jr. and Matthew Will Johnston, all of Richmond.

A memorial service will be held Saturday at 3 p.m. at St. Mary's White Chapel Episcopal Church in Lively.

Curis Retires from Bank of Lancaster

Bank of Lancaster vice president and residential lending administrator Margaret Eppes Curtis recently retired, reports bank president and chief executive officer Austin L. Roberts.

Curtis joined the bank in December 1994 as the company’s first residential loan originator. Prior to joining the bank, her career spanned insurance and banking fields, to include branch management and 25 years of experience in mortgage loans operations and originations.

In 1998, the board of directors promoted Curtis to vice president and she assumed leadership of the residential lending department. Under her leadership, the bank’s residential loan portfolio grew from $63 million to $135 million at year-end 2010.

“Our corporate mission statement speaks to our commitment to community; we call it paying our ‘civic rent’ and Margaret fully embraced this philosophy of giving back to the communities we serve,” said Roberts. “For several years she chaired our company’s
community service team, which coordinates almost 50 local civic and charitable functions throughout the year. She also served as a team member and past captain of our American Cancer Relay for Life team and participated each year in fund-raising for the March of Dimes ‘WalkAmerica.’ She has also been a very important member of many of our company’s service improvement teams, to include customer relationship management, procedures, communications and the 75th anniversary celebration, to
name only a few.”

A retirement luncheon and open house was held for Curtis with co-workers, directors and many associates and customers in attendance. Senior vice president and senior lending officer Doug Jenkins presented Curtis with a retirement gift. Roberts presented her a framed resolution adopted by the bank board of directors. The resolution recognized, commended and honored Curtis for her distinguished leadership and devoted service to Bank of Lancaster during her 16-year tenure.

“There is no doubt from our perspective that we are a better organization because of Margaret’s time with us, both personally and professionally,” said Roberts. “She has been, and I know will continue to be, a great ambassador for Bank of Lancaster. We owe her our gratitude, for many of the successes we enjoy today can be attributed to her leadership. Our appreciation and well wishes go with Margaret for a long, happy, healthy retirement.”
