My family has a lot of rich history in Hillsville/Carroll Co. VA. My father just died and with his passing, has made me very curious about my heritage. I know that we go way back in history and came from England. My great, great, great, great, great grandfather owned a great amount of land in the county. The only members I know are my grandfather and his brother, Wise and Wyatt SHOCKLEY. From there who knows where it goes. My uncle still lives in the county, Otis SHOCKLEY (I think) it's been so long since I've been around them, I'm unsure of the names. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for any help you can give me.

Is anyone working on determining the parentage of William LARGEN (177?-1832)? Contrary to oral history which says that his father was from Sweden, we believe that he was of French descent. The Largen history seems to stop with him and we would like to carry it back further. Help! Bill and Mary Largen Fox, Williamsburg, VA.

I am looking for BALDWINs and DALTONs and my line of DALTONs includes Isaac DALTON born 19 Feb, 1856 in Lee Co., VA. He was married to Rebecca E. BALDWIN, born Nov. 1853 somewhere in VA. She married Isaac DALTON in 1876. I do not know who Rebecca E. BALDWIN's parents were and all I know is that she had a brother named John C. BALDWIN. Isaac DALTON's parents were Thomas DALTON and Catherine COLLINSWORTH. They were married 20 Sept. 1851 in Carroll Co. Va. Catherine COLLINSWORTH's parents were Thomas COLLINSWORTH and Esther Ann BLUBAUGH married 17 July 1832 in Lee Co., Va. I don't know who their parents were. Thomas DALTON's parents were Thomas DALTON and Mary or Polly JENNINGS. They were married 29 May, 1833 in Carroll Co., Va. Who were their parents? Also after reading about the Melungeons, I found out that DALTON and COLLINSWORTH are possible Melungeon surnames.
