I am the Grandson of James Newton Childers. I am working on our family History and have found this resource invaluable. There is one discrepency in the record: James Newton Childers and Edith Jane Dye did have 2 children. James Donald Childers and Barbra Jean Childers. Her name is incorrect. I know this as she was my mother. Bobbie Jean Childers who married my father, John Alba Long Jr. in Terre Haute Indiana After James and Edith had moved the family there.

Hello Marcus. I am Trista Lewis Byers and I am in the process of starting my family tree. I am trying to follow the line of my surname "Lewis". I have made it all the way back to William Midas Lewis and Ann Hogston. They would be my great-great-great-great-great grandparents.I saw the information that you had, and I also saw a picture of Ann Hogston on ancestry.com. I wanted to know if you had any more information on William beyond the 1840 census. I didn't know if you knew his parents' names. I know that he was born approximately 1815 and he was born in VA but nothing beyond that. Could you help me?

Hello. I a doing some research on my husband's side of the family. My husband, Charles Keith Sword, is the son of William Harold Sword. William Sword was the son of George and Jane Sword. There are many references to Jane Sword (b. 1862 d. 1934) on Ancestry.com but I do not think people realize she had a son. Somehow my search keeps coming back to the Boyd family. Thank you for sharing your information.

Where you are from: Roanoke, Va
How you found my site: Found it years ago
Comments:
Marcus, Hello. It has been awhile since we've written. My grandfather was James Kelly Adams, the adopted son of Mary Wilson, wife of Thomas Addison, Sydney Johnson Adams and Raleigh Compton.
I had my mom do a family finder DNA test. Up until that time I kinda thought that since Mary and Sydney (her 2nd husband) adopted Kelly, perhaps Addison was his natural father by way of a young woman residing in the 1900 census wth Mary and her husband Thomas Addison. Mary divorces Addison on grounds of infidelity, another stepping stone that posits perhaps Kelly was the son of the young boarder and Thom. Addison. Thomas and Mary divorce and within days she marries Sydney Adams and Kelly is shown as their adopted son. The 1900 census shows Mary had given birth to ine child, but the child did not survive.
In the FFDNA test, mom had no markers from the
Addison family, which she should have if Thomas Addison was her g father. She does however carry a number of markers from the Adams family and the Wilson family, as well.
This causes me to wonder: Thomas is out as Kelly's father, the young lady, a Mulkey does not show up in the DNA, so I feel confident the
Addisons and Mulkeys are out of the DNA running. Mary could not be Kelly's natural mother as she is shown in 1900 as having no children. Adams is prominent among mother's DNA results as well as Wilson. If Mary is not Kelly's mother and she has no sisters of child bearing age in 1900, this causes me to wonder if perhaps Kelly is the son of another
Wilson female, perhaps an aunt or cousin. Kelly always held that his father (Adams)was his natural father and that another female in Mary's family was his mother. The FFDNA test seems to bear this out. So where do we get another Wilson family female? I know you have done exhaustive research on the BC Wilson family and thought you might be the best one to pose this question to. Also, I have a photo of Kelly with his natural mother and 2 men who he believed were her brothers. I would gladly share the photo with you if you thought it might help to pin down his natural parents.
Any thoughts on the DNA from the Wilson family? Who might be the natural parents of James Kelly Adams in 1900?
Thanks Marcus. I know this take seems to ramble, but I tried to stay as linear as I could. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi, My name is Carah Elizabeth I'm 25 years old, my mother is susan ann hill (noble)(zarins), the daughter of Ray Marson Hill and Sarah Sperling (also known as Sally Wolford). My grandmother that raised my mother, myself and two brothers is named Regina Beth Wikowsky (also known as Beth Newport) I'm interested in my family bloodline I'm also making record of all children in each lineage, including infant deaths, adoptions, and step children. My family tree is quite extensive at this point, so i choose to use the pedigree option. It seems that many people married and divorced and remarried, having a lot of children along the way. I have not published my family tree yet because i am not finished and also not certain every bit of information is true, I will only publish it once I am sure that I have no misinformation. If you have any more knowledge about our family history, or know how to obtain it I would be very appreciative. Thank you very much, Have a nice day.

I was wondering why Joshua Phipps Sr. had children with two separate women during the same time period.

He had in Deborah Phipps born 1768 in Knox Co,Ky and then went back to Botetourt Co, VA 1769 to have Joshua Jr with Boone.

I was recently in Trazwell and met Sam Gillespie. He was telling me about Thomas bringing Reece Bowen's boots back from Kings Mountain when Reece was killed. Boots were returned to his wife at Maiden Spring.
I believe you have Thomas's parents wrong. I gave Sam a copy of Thomas Gillespie's children and he told me that the birth days were wrong. I know Trimble had Thomas Gillespie as Thomas's parents. He is in error. William and Mary were the parents of Thomas that married Margaret Peggy Bowen. You might want to research that a little more and you will see the error. Thomas & Eleanor's son was older than this Thomas s/f William and Mary. I relate thru John Gillespie s/o William and Mary Gillespie.

My grandmother was Pearl Elsie Boyd Thompson, James Sparrel Boyd and Jocie Edgar Davis Boyd's daughter. i'm excited about your information. I have a lot of info to fill in such as more names and dates. I am using Family Tree Maker by Ancestry.com. I don't subscribe to Ancestry.com but I'd like to get the information to you if you are interested. Can you give me some tips on how to email my tree to you? I'm also looking for information about my grandfather Earnest John (nee Blankenship)Thompson, Pearl Elsie's husband. He was born in Columbiana County,Ohio (East Liverpool). He was born Blankenship in 1910 but when he was about 2 years old his mother, mary E. gibson Blankenship killed a man over moonshine. They fled Ohio and went moved to West VA. Then they illegally changed their name to Thompson. The rest of the the 4 children were born Thompson. 1 in W.Va. and 3 in Pike County, KY. Could you give me some tips about how tofind info? Thanks a lot.

Hi!
My grandmother is Nancy Jane Whited, daughter of Ransom Doddrige Whited. My GGGgrandfather is Moses Whited. We basically know nothing about the Whited's. I was born in 1951 and my grandma Nancy died two months after I was born. I have pictures of her but never got to know her. My grandpa, Fleet Riddle, was gone before I was born. Do the Whited's have reunions anywhere? I've just started doing geneology and love it! I have alot to learn!! But I'm truly interested in finding some of the Whited kinfolk!! Thanks for the opportunity to write you and the picture of Moses Whited's tombstone!

Hey, Thanks for putting my parents on here but you got their birthdays wrong. James Franklin Roop, born November 22, 1906, and Winnie Alice Stuart Roop, born May 5, 1905.Their death dates are right. They got married in 1932, in nine months their first boy, Billy Jack arrived. When he was 18 months old and my sister (Freda Geraldine) was 2 weeks he got a high fever and passed on. When my sister was three they had another boy (Darrel Leon),sadly at nine months he passed.They had convulsions.James Harold came along in 1939, Harry Lee in 1942 and finally me in 1944.My double fisrt cousin, Phyllis Roop wrote a book on the Roop and Stuart in 1986.Our daughter Susan Asburry Cole has put it on here.

Comments:
Great site! Not sure we connect or not. The BOYDS that intermarried with the DICKERSONS in Russell Co. (HENRY DICKERSON and MARY POWELL) all have twins in the line. My ANDREW CALDWELL m. JERUSHA ELLINGTON left Russell and Lee Counties, VA in 1830 and went to Illinois, Coles County. Current BOYDS are there in the town of Marshall, Clark Co., IL that came from this line I understand. SARAH SALLY CECIL married JAMES CAMUS CALDWELL in Tazewell Co., VA, went to Springfield, Missouri, Greene Co. where they ended up. JAMES was a Brother to my ANDREW CALDWELL. Think yours is a different line. Mine did the Census of 1820 for Russell Co., Va and the 1830 Lee County, VA Census in 1830. His Father was WILLIAM CALDWELL and REBECKAH who came to Washington Co. , VA about 1786 who was from York Co., PA. think personal friends with RICHARD PRICE, also from York Co., PA. JAMES C. CALDWELL's daughter, REBECCA A. married GEORGE T. PRICE, Grandson of RICHARD PRICE.

Marriage for Margaret Ann [Bowling] Anderson:

She married John P. Vallé on 30 May 1891 in Coffman, Sainte Genevieve Co., MO. This is from the county marriage registry.

She had been widowed by Brooks N. Anderson, son of Uriah Anderson and Edna "Edney" Huddleston.

I have NOT found Roux Anderson's marriage record. I wonder if he was somehow related to Brooks, although Anderson is a VERY common last name.

Hi Mark: I noticed in your " southwest family" which would be my dad Ralph H Phipps, you list a half-sister "living" as a Van Cleaf. My father did have a half sister named Lottie van Cleaf, but she died in a car crash many years ago. She married a Donald Ward who was her high school sweetheart. They had a son named Donnie Ward, who passed away so young foam prostate cancer. They also had twin girls named Barbara and Darnell Ward. Last I heard, many ago, they both married and were living in Hillsborough or in that part of California. Don Ward deserted Lottie when the kids were small. She eventually remarried her insurance agent Charlie Pallatino. They had a son but can't recall his name. As far as I know, there is no living Van Cleaf unless he had a boy child by another marriage before hooking up with Mary Green Phipps, who took the name of Van Cleaf when she gave birth to Lottie. She is Ralph and Athaleen's step-sister. Hope all that makes sense. Happy 2011 to you Mark. Jan

I am currently working on my family tree on ancestry.com. I am a descendent of John of Ayrshire. A LOT of the trees list him as the husband of Lady Lennox (Margaret Mongomerie); however, I can only find evidence of her being married to John Stuart. I cannot link 'Patrick' to 'Stuart' and most things I am looking into seem to dead end here, with Lady Lennox's line going all the way back to King Harald of Denmark (Bluetooth).
Thank you so much for making your trees and information available!! This is addicting:)

I'm sure we are cousins. My father Garland (1919-1996) was born in Swords Creek, as was his father Silas.

I don't do much work on it anymore as I can't get to my files at home because of a computer crash. But at work I can get to Ancestry.com to look things up when I need to.

This site is very interesting. I know when we spoke we connected through a Price/Addison marriage. I reviewed some of the other surnames. My mother was a Lawson before she married my father. My Grandmother's maiden names were Blackwell and Durham. I believe there is a connection also through a Addington/Dye marriage. My Great-Grandmother Lawson was an Addington before she married. My Grandfather Lawson was a first cousin to a Jack Addington, the father of Jack Dempsey Addington that married Pauline Dye. I am sure there are other connections that I can find when I get a chance to look even farther into your information. Thanks so much for posting

Hi Marcus,

Inspired by a friend researching her family I decided to google my great-grandfather, the source of my own surname and your page came up. On it, I found my great grandfather (Meshack Meadows b. 1893 in Buchanan), his first wife Ellen Arms and his second wife (my great-grandmother)Polly Gibson. My great aunt is on there as well (Norma Stella Meadows), though you're missing my grandfather. It appears we must be related somehow!

Hello, You have really put a lot of time and effort into this research. I have more specific info on John Hamlett and Ellen Phipps Hamlett if you'd like. All are deceased now and I was searching to find info on my family too. I am only familiar with the paternal side (Hamlett) and was trying to also find info on my mother, Catherine Moore Hamlett. A lot of these names sound very familiar from visits and discussions when they were alive, however I was much younger and the importance of recording that info wasn't a priority to me at the time. Now I am trying to piece together this near impossible history with very old and vague memories. Thank You for your helpful site.

Comments:
Dear Marcus, I was thrilled to find my maternal Great-grandmothers' name on your family ancestor site. I first checked out ancestry.com, but was hesitant to pay their monthly fee. Not expecting much, I googled her name "Laura Elvessa Cunningham". I was told that someone in her family had been a medical doctor ( she herself was a midwife)...from your records I found that her Mother's brother, Dr. George Rolla HIGHSMITH, was the doctor in the family. I found many other interesting facts too. But I still haven't quite figured out how all the names are connected. I wanted to get a bit of our family history together, as our first grand-baby is due in September...Our daughter-inlaw is also a Doctor..she is a surgeon at the UCLA Medical Center...so now, her baby will know, that not only is his Mother a doctor, but one of his ancestors was too. Thank you for sharing your Ancestor Site. If you would like further names and dates associated to "Laura Elvessa Cunningham", I would be happy to provide you with
that information. Yours' Truly, Dolores Hook

My husband's grandmother was Virginia Genette Wagner, youngest daughter of David & Elizabeth Victoria Johnson Wagner. I do a lot of genealogy and am particularly looking for someone who might have pictures to share of these related people. I have only one picture of Wagner children taken at Aunt Venia's house about 1919. Are you descended from Aunt Maud? We brought my father-in-law, Charles Graybeal, down to Mt. City in 1974 and met some of the family at that time. We went to the Wagner Family Cemetery and at that time it was in good condition. Today it appears to be in shambles. My daughter & I travelled to Mt. City this past Aug. and in fact did not go far enough back to find it. However, I have seen picures of it on line taken in 2003. - sad. Do you, or anyone you know, have pictures of any of the Johnsons or Wagners? Thanks.

I'm so happy I found your site. I've been researching about three years. I have a lot of ancestors identified on my maternal grandmother's side, but have been struggling on my grandfather's side (Harvey Thomas Wilson). About a year ago
I found his father (Joel Clark Wilson), followed by his father (Ellis Wilson) and his father (Tapley Wilson). There I hit a brick wall, as I believe many people have. Your data on Tapley's ancestors is a breakthrough for me. I note your tree shows only two children for Ellis. Mine shows eight, including Joel. My tree is on Ancestry.com, "Wilson Peterson Family Tree". Feel free to browse it, and/or contact me. Thanks for letting me share the benefits of your hard work.

Hi Marcus,

I'm collating the English, Scottish, Irish, American and other overseas Vances in the hope of finally sorting out the connection between them and my family of Vans of Barnbarroch.
My aim is to collect every (!) recorded Vance family and try to piece together the entire picture, using all the available sources and taking into account the genetic data.

I'd really appreciate any information you have about 'your' or any Vances (a gedcom would be ideal as it saves re-typing) and particularly any ideas, legends, or better still, knowledge, about their origins.

Having all the available information may help in eventually finding some of the earlier generations in Ireland and Scotland.
Best wishes,

Jamie.

I am interested also in finding out more on the Lester's you have listed. Feel free to email me, Nancye1962@yahoo.com ,

Found this on your Margaret Louise Bowling...listed here as Boolling...in fact, Margaret in the original record looks like Marget...

Brooks Anderson To Margaret Boolling

State of Missouri, county of Ste Genevieve M

This is to certify that on the 23 day of December A.D. 1877, Mr. Brooks Anderson and Miss Margaret (looks like “Margetö) Boolling were by me united in marriage according to the laws of God and of the State of Missouri at St. Genevieve County, Missouri.
James Counts
Ministery [sic] of the gospel

Under the public land entries, you will also find her listed as the widow of Brooks:

“Margaret A. Andersonö was already widowed by “Brooks N. Andersonö by 15 February 1884. I think that was from the BLM databases (free) out on the web.

Brooks was the brother of my Great-Great-Grandmother Matilda "Tillie" Anderson. Among her husbands was Joseph Alonzo Shoults, my great-great-grandfather. One of their son's middle names was Brooks...another's was Anderson.

Keeping it all in the family! ha

Did you know that he served under Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson and that he kept the nuclear codes? His office at the Eisenhower Farm is being refurbished as it was when he stayed there. One of his card playing buddies was John Eisenhower. Later, he was w/ FEMA and again kept the nuclear codes and had an unrestricted pass to Mount Weather near Berryville, VA. He was a veteran of WWII, the Korean War, and was, of course, still in the military during the Vietnam Conflict.

She also had a son named Cody Brannon Addison who currently lives in Lynchburg, Virginia. He is married to Mimi Hoffman Addison of Roanoke, Va. They have two children, Virginia Lee and Cody Brannon. Both are unmarried. They also had an oldest daughter who passed away at the age of 16 in 1987-88. I am the oldest grandchild. I am married to Laura Furey Kincaid of Raleigh, NC and have two young children, Caroline and Christopher. Grandma Gerthel as we all called her passed away in Lynchburg, Virginia a few years ago.

Hey I love the amount of research that you have done and would love to be able to utilize your research for my side of the family. My mother is Ginger Conley (formerly Ginger Lester, daughter of Garmin and Elsie). Just a quick note though, Dana Lester (now Dana King is my Aunt and is a female and not a male as you have listed on your web page). I look forward to hearing from you and would love to go further to see how our family lines have crossed.

Keep up the good work.

I was overwhelmed when I saw your site. Since my father was in his fifties when I was born & I lost my mother at a very young age I had very little information about my ancestry. The only thing I knew for sure was my grandmothers name. Now I feel as it I can look back and see a part of my history. Thank you so much for sharing your hard work!

Great! Lots of information here, some I have been looking for.

I can't find anything on Nathaniel Maddux who m. Ann Tennsyson. I was told she left with another man, and that's all I know of them.

Also, William Maddux from Virginia went to Maysville, KY Nov 1784. I found him in Jefferson Co., KY Church Records. I know nothing else about him.

Also; Lazarus Maddux left his will in Mason Co., Ky dated 1794. I haven't seen this will, but found it in the Will Book of Mason Co., KY.

There is a Notely Maddux there also, and a member of the family of Cornelius Maddox Family, whose daughter, Mary married a Smallwood, and William Smallwood is my direct ancestor through his son, James, the same one Mary Maddox married into. Small world.

If I didn't spend so much time looking this stuff up, I wouldn't have found that connection to the Smallwood Family of which I am a descenant of William Smallwood, through Mary Ann Elizabeth Smallwood of Indiana who m. John T. Murphy and the Murphy's were in Baltimore Co., MD and John Lowe was seated between William Murpy and his brother, Joseph Murphy in Pew #23 in the Methodist E. Church in Baltimore, MD in the 1700's.

your info is incorrect or lacking about the family of coy and charlotte richardson. I am their third biological child. My maiden name is Jennifer Dean Richardson. I was born 8-22-78. Brian and Todd are my older brothers. Mom and Dad also adopted my brother Josh before i was born. His birthdate is Nov. 07 1977. Please amend that.. it was somewhat unsettling to see my brothers names and my parents names in your family tree but it was like I never existed. :o( but yet you knew all about my brother Todd and his accident. apparently you didn't read his obituary very closely huh?

Hi Marcus!
I've been researching my family tree, and found your site while looking into the Bowling family (on my mother's side)in/around Chatham Hill, Smyth Co., VA, and discovered that we seem to be related.
My maternal grandfather was Philip Bailey Criggar, Jr. born in Chatham Hill, Smyth Co., VA. His parents were Philip Bailey Crigger of Smyth Co, VA and Lucy Irene "Renie" Bowling. Lucy Irene's parents were Henry Campbell Bowling and Mary Elizabeth Rich...who as it turns out, were both of the Bowling family, both through Jarret Bowling.
I'd be happy to provide more information if you'd like.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

I could not find my father-in-laws parents (missing). Could you possible find Harvel Conley Robinett's parents genealogy information with his birth name spelling: Harvel Conley Robinett. He lived in the Raven, VA area all his life. His father's name was Harrison Robinett and his mother's name was Winnie Yates Robinett. When Harrison died Winnie married George Whitt.

My great-grandfather was Charles William (C.W.)Boyd of Richlands, VA (born in Russell Co.) in 1882. His son, George Bailey Boyd was my grandfather. He (C.W.)was involved heavily in the Virginia Hardwood Co. as well as others. I am having difficulty finding info. on his parents Elijah and Octavia Hunt. It seems I get close but then the "road" takes a turn. Whether or not you have any clues for me I have to say it is very nice that you open your "books" to others. It seems some of the "Boyds" who post family trees are more interested in isolation rather than being possibly connected to other members of the family. I'm an administrator and educator and firmly believe knowledge should be shared. Thanks again for the access you've allowed to what, I can only imagine, is countless hours and days of work.

Marcus,
I've lost track of how many different sites I have found you on.
The Smith, Belcher, Rockwell lines are my husband's; Joseph Belcher was his grandfather; 'Winnie' Winifred Helen Belcher was his mother.
'Winnie' is his biological child of his 2nd marriage to his brother's widow - 'Lizzie' Mary Elizabeth Wright Belcher. This of course makes it extremely difficult for most people to make sense of birth years. Check out Pearl Belcher - parents: George & 'Lizzie'; Mark Moore has a tree on Ancestry.com - he is Pearl's grandson.
I would like to exchange information with you. I have a Smith Family Tree at Ancesty.com with this information.
Nice to meet you,
Linda (mammagardener15)

Her maiden name was Owens. Thanks for having this information out there! Take care, Stephanie Boyd Durner

How you found my site: Researching the Plaster/Sharp family
Comments:
Your site is very impressive and very informative in many local families of my interest. I look forward to spending more time studying your site. One of my main interest is a connection between the SHARP family of Patrick County, VA and my TUGGLE family of Patrick and Russell Counties in Virginia. My great-great-great grandfather was WILLIAM WALKER TUGGLE (circa 1785 - 1870's) who was married to HANNAH ?. HANNAH I. TUGGLE OSBORNE, the daughter of JOHN MORRIS TUGGLE, who was a son of WILLIAM WALKER TUGGLE stated in an early history that the mother of JOHN MORRIS TUGGLE was a SHARP. What's so frustrating is the fact that both ROBERT SHARP and WILLIAM SHARP of Patrick Co., VA married ladies named PHILAPENAH. One a SHELTON and the other a FITZGERALD. Any help you could offer me in my quest to break through this wall would be greatly appreciated. Jerry Olinger (You do a good job as anchor and reporter!)

One of the more nicer sites that I have seen. Of the many families we are researching, the Mutter family of Elk Garden is on my plate at the present time. I don't your connection to this family, but you show Odgen Mutter at Ancestry.Com, in the family tree section. Odgen happens to be the father of 2 nice ladies. You have Dorothy shown and her brother Odgen "Buddy" Mutter. Dorothy "Dot" had a sister, Betty that passed away a few years back. Maybe 10 years ago. These 2 sisters married brothers. Betty married Calvin Powers and Dorothy is married to Calvin's brother Bradford "Brad" Powers. These gentlemen are my mother-in-law's brothers. Also from the Elk Garden arena were the Robbins and Price families that were the parents of my wife's grandmother. Almeda Robbins married James O. Price, had 3 children, flew the coup and in 1897 married Albert Mutter. James, family and friends raised the 3 children. I think I have said enough. Give me a shout at alliedon@hotmail.com. And again I must rate your site at the top. Don, in Tennessee

After the war he changed his name to Emmett Randolph Fink, but was never legally adopted.It wasn't until he was grown that he found out he had 3 brothers, Melvin Eugene, Russell, and Larry. Only I think Larry was a nick name because records show Howard Lee. I met 2 of his brothers and his real mother when I was young. They lived in Portsmouth Ohio. Any info would be appreciated.

I am Betty-jane Tester daughter of Ezra Garfield Tester and Betty Jane Wingo. Ezra's parents are William Wiley Tester and Verna Sue Long. William died in July 1955 from a construction injury. William's parents were Wilbur Wiley Tester and Nancy Emily Dunford. Wilbur and Nancy had 4 girls and 4 boys. They are:
Nancy Emily (Emmy) Tester unk dob,
James Ezra Tester abt 1891
John Wesley Daniel Tester abt 1892
Carrie May Tester abt 1895
Sarah Jane Tester abt 1896
William Wiley Tester abt 1902
Andrew Howard Tester 7-11-1907
Ida Elizabeth Tester also Ida B Tester abt 1912

Wilbur Wiley Tester's parents are
John Jackson Tester abt 1819
Sallie Morefield abt 1822


My mother met Andrew Howard Tester between 1949 and 1955. She said he was the nicest of all the Tester family. At the time he had several children and lived in Maryland.

Somewhere in our family is American Indian Heritage. I am told my father's grandmother was the full blood Cherokee. That would seem to be Nancy Emily Dunford. There are rumors Nancy would rest on the floor at William Wiley Tester's home in between the stove and refrigerator.

Do you have any information?

Thank you kindly,

Hi cousin,

I found your website by accident. I love it. Two corrections, Chris Reynolds's middle name is Andrew not Allen. Also, Daddy didn't have a middle name. He always used the initial P for Paskall, but when he retired he found out that he did not have a middle name on his birth certificate.

I see you have a Nancy Elizabeth Herndon who married John D. Miller, son of John David Miller, son of John H. Miller b 1780, son of Nicholas Miller. I think, then, that I have found some of my people! When I confirm with my aunt, I will share the info with you.

Marcus, Do you know why Stanford Clapp, his wife and children (and a Murray family) moved from Alamance Co.,NC to Smythe Co.,NC? Stanford and my gggrandfather, Madison Clapp(who were neighbors) got into legal trouble in 1859 in Alamance Co. I don't know the charge but the result was that Madison had to pay $5.00 and cost of court and Stanford had to pay 1 cent and cost of court. Around the time Stanford moved to VA. Madison's son, Emsley, my ggrandfather, moved from Alamance Co. to SC and changed his surname to that of his mother, Goley. Another of Madison's sons, Alson Clapp moved to Indiana and was never heard from again. Something bad happened, but I can't find out what. Do you know anything about this? I would appreciate any help you could give.

Hey, I notice that you have a bunch of my Fletcher family listed. My grandfather was Leonard Larkin Fletcher, son of William Thomas Fletcher and he was the son of Larkin Fletcher. I notice that you have listed as a source on Carey Cephas Fletcher 'the Fletcher Family Bible'. My granddaddy remembered there being a bible, and he figured that some of Carey's descendant's probably wound up with it, but we were never able to track it down. Have you seen it, or do you know who has it? I'd love to get copies of it, etc.

I can fill you in on descendants of William Thomas, most are still in Texas or Utah.

This site is great!

I saw Sarah Mash (b. 1855) listed. I believe that she is the sister of my great-grandfather, Bill Mash.

Have you seen this Mash family web site? One of my immediately family stumbled onto it:

Hi Marcus,
Just wanted to let you know what a great job you have done!
I was b. in Wash.Co., Va. but spent age 3 to 9 in Russell
Co. Swords Creek is where my Dad & g.parents lived.
I have been researching since 1983. What a time I have had.
But I haven't been to RCV in 6 years! Its a long way, and the miles are getting longer.
I have a question. Why, oh why, can't anyone find a picture of Rev. James Dye with his WIFE? There is a hand on his shoulder and apparently its been cut off. IF you ever find one PLEASE let me know. He isn't on my direct line but I am tracing all Dyes.
Thanks for sharing your info & pictures with all of us.
My husband & I have 3 sons AND just had to tell you that your little boy is PRECIOUS!
A cousin, I'm sure, Peggy Scott

I have been trying to find records on Hannah Hurd Helton Haywood. Hannah married Samuel Helton 2-23-1825 in Franklin county. They moved to Washington County, then Russell County. Samuel died(date?) and Hannah remarried John B. Haywood who was about 22 years her Junior. Her daughter, Julia (Judith) was my ggrandmother. Julia had my ggrandfather, John Henry Helton, before she was married and she later married Joseph Haywood a brother to her mother's husband John. Confusing? Last time I find either of them in Russell County Census is 1860. Julia (Judith?) married Joseph Haywood 11-3-1864. I wonder where they moved after their marriage to the Haywood boys.

Thanks for all the work you have done. It is quite extensive. I have a few corrections, though. Margaret Valle is my mother's great grandmother. I have Margaret Valle's death certificate. She is listed as Margaret "Ann" Valle. (b. Sept. 3, 1854, d. Jan 20, 1921, so her middle name is not Louise. Her daughter, Maggie, (Margaret Elizabeth) married Peter Daniel Hoehn (son of Dorilla Justice and John Benjamin Hoehn). I'm not sure where "Bauer Valle" enters the picture.

You list Alexander D. Parsons as a twin of Alvin D. Parsons.
After much digging around several of us have come to the conclusion that they are Uncle and Nephew. Alexander D. is the son of Caleb and Katherine Landreth Parsons. I have the Civil war records for Alexander, who died Jan. 30, 1863, in a Richmond Hospital. Caleb signed on a claim as his Fa. Alexander was 22 when he enlisted. Also if you comput the census their is only one male child in Alvin's age range, never two.

I am curious about your listing of Eve Martin, wife of Matthew Maddox, being born 1754 in Missouri. Actually, at that time the French and Spanish were still deciding who would own it. It wasn't until 1812 that it was ceded to the Americans.

Second question: I am looking for documentation on who Matthew Maddox's children were. By documentation, I mean baptism records, Family Bible, will, or etc.

I am administrator of the Maddox DNA Project at www.geocities.com/madoxdna. By autumn of 2005 we hope to have our new website location completely changed over to www.freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~maddoxdetc

Also we have an active discussion group. The descendants of both Adam and George Nathaniel Maddox are in this group and are seeking documentary confirmation of Matthew's children. Why not join us and help us out?

I also thought it was interesting that a family can seem so small when looking at each individual child, but once you look at all the descendents together... it's amazing!

My grandmother, Rebecca Rudd Horton, whose mother was Louisa Jane Bowling told me many years ago when I was a kid that we were decendents of Pocahontas through the Red Bowling (Bolling) line. So far, I have been unable to establish a link, but your site has been very enlightening. I am a new beginner at this, but if I find anything worth contributing I will certainly do so. CH

I am the great grand daughter of Arch,(not Archer as listed) Duncan, Married to Anna Catharine Hess Miller.
She was the daughter of John D. Miller and Mary Hess.
Arch was born 1852, his parents were William and Lucinda (holland) Duncan. They were the parents of 11 sons. You will find them in the 1850 and 60 Russell County, Va census.
Arch and Anna Catherine were married Dec. 7th 1870, Arch was 21 and Anna was 27 and a widow.
Arch and Anna had Elizabeth listed as a child, but they also had, Ella, Ida, Caroline, Tom and Henry. The two boys died of pnumonia when they were in their thirties, leaving families, working in the coal mines around Keokee Va, and Big stone gap. My grand father was Tom. Tom still has a living son 88 years old and lives in Nashville Tennessee.

Cool site, thanks for gathering and sharing.

I've got lots more info on the descendants of Larkin Fletcher, if you're interested, let me know. I'm also interested in your sources of the information that you have on the Thomas Fletcher (father of Larkin Fletcher) family. It matches a lot of what I have, but we differ on some of the dates and a few of the names.
