I am trying to find information on Martha Virginia Brady who was born to Abner (or Abram) and Mary Brady and who married Joseph Marshall around 1869. Martha and Joseph had 3 children William Walker, Roseanie M who married Peter Goad, and George Cabell. Roseanie and Peter had 3 children Vinecia who married John Mabe, William Henry, and Ella Mae who married Clifford Riley. Martha is my great great aunt. This is all I have on Martha's descendants. I would like to track her descendants on down the line to see if anyone has more information. I have a several pictures that date back to the late 1800s early 1900s that could very well be some of this family. If anyone else has pictures, it would help to confirm this. Also, on the tombstone for Martha who is buried in the Cox cemetery at Dugspur, the last name is listed as Goad. I do not have any information on her marrying a Goad, but it could very well be because Joseph Marshall was a much older man and he died about 1890.

Any help with the following will be greatly appreciated.
Jonathan RICHARDSON (abt. 1796-abt 1870) & Nancy SHORT (abt. 1809-aft 1870) of Grayson/Carroll Co., VA had about ten children per the 1850 Census; Annotated by John Perry Alderman.
William Richardson (23 Dec 1840, Carroll/Grayson Co. - 10 May 1910, Carroll Co.) is shown as 10 years old living in the household of William & Nancy in the 1850 Carroll Co. Census. John Perry Alderman as well as many others, suggest William was the son of William and Nancy.
Hand-me-down accounts suggest William was illegitimate and not the son of William and Nancy. On his 1866-marriage license application, he list his mother as Rebecca Richardson and a line drawn for the name of his father. On this date, both Jonathan and Nancy were living.
I am trying to determine if Jonathan Richardson and Nancy Short had a daughter named Rebecca who may have been the mother of William.
Jim Richardson, great-grandson of William Richardson (1840-1910) Carroll Co., VA
