Not sure what to say?

Dr. Bagby was a dedicated member of the Jamestowne Society leadership for many years. His presence has been greatly missed, and his contributions of time and effort will continue to have positive impacts for years to come. Sincere sympathy to his family and friends.

To the Bagby Family,
I had the privilege of meeting Dr. Bagby at the Jamestowne Society Council in 1999 and found him to be a dedicated member of the Society. He was greatly admired by his peers. I send my sincere condolences to the family.

To the Bagby Family,
I convey my heartfelt condolences to you and the family. Dr. Bagby was a long time friend and support of me in the Jamestowne Society. I wish to share a treasured memory with you and that is: In April 1992, I literally was walking in my house after spending a week in Charleston, S. C., when my late husband told me I had a long distant phone call from Richmond, VA. At that time, I did not know Dr. Bagby and could not believe my ears when he asked me would I serve...

My Heart goes out to you all.. I'm very sorry for your loss, and praying for ya'll...

Mary Ann and family – I knew James through VGS. He was fine gentlemen and colleague in the genealogy community. He will be missed. You have my deepest sympathy

I'm so sorry for his family's loss. I only knew him a short time through the Virginia Genealogical Society and he was always kind and generous to us.

Bagby Family,

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God bless and keep you in his love.


Very sorry to hear about the loss of your father. My sincere condolences to you and your family.
