Seeking info on murder in Piper's Gap, VA. The crime was commited by a James (R) Wolfe upon my gggrandpa William Jackson "Honest Jack" Harold in September 5, 1878. We've all been waiting for the circumstances that led to this crime throughout the generations. I found a James Wolfe mentioned by the Mormons as being born in the 1840s in Mobile Alabama, 9th ward, working as a clerk in the railroad. Then I found a James R. Wolfe in the 1st Alabama Cavalry. Not sure that's the guy. I wonder how they met. They were both in the war together but Mr. Harold was captured at Cloyd's Farm and taken to Point Lookout, Maryland, then exchanged to Richmond Hospital. Following the murder his father, Moses Pitts Harold, took the family in, including WJ's widow Virginia Branscome and six kids. I will appreciate greatly anything else you can tell me.

Henry Hardy married Rachel Beasley in January of 1822 in Grayson County, Virginia; likewise, John Hardy married Martha Allin in February of 1822. I believe they were brothers and the sons of John Hardy who deeded property to his daughter, Polly Hardy, in 1819 (Polly Hardy married Abram Brown in May of 1822). Would like to correspond with descendants of these families.

Looking for information on the parents or other relations of my paternal grandmother Pearl Tolbert, born late 1800s in Carroll County, later married (approx. 1900 - 1910) to John C. Rose of Surry County, NC. She died in 1969, is buried in White Plains Baptist Church cemetery (behind old church building) in White Plains community outside Mt. Airy, Surry County, NC. My father and several other relatives believe her biological father was a Doctor, his name may have been Frill Webb .... was orphaned and raised with Tolbert name.

My gg-grandfather John Smith married Priscilla Massey in Wythe County, Va in the early 1870's. Any information anyone has would be awesome. Thank You,

Is the Rufus Bond that married Christina Anna Marshall daughter of Joseph & Julia Ann the same as Rufus Stephen that married Martha Ann Marshall daughter of Levi and Carolyn?
Both girls are part of the Simon G. Marshall descendents and I'm trying to maintain and update a backup copy of the database of the 2001 Simon Granser Marshall Family book edited and compiled by Payne Marshall.
Thanks, Denise
