There were a handful of Corder marriages in Shenandoah County between 1790 and 1822. The 1810 and 1820 Census Records show a William Corder household in Shen. Co. Many of those Corders who married in this time period stated that William was their father. Elizabeth did not state who her parents were.  Since Census Records indicate that C? Reuben was born in VA, it appears that he was related to Elizabeth.

Jacob and Elinor Golladay, one infant son and another on the way, arrived in what was then Frederick County in 1758.
Their second son David was born in Garrisburg. I have never been able to find that location in archival records. I assume it was in Powell's Fort Valley (now Shenandoah County), where they lived at the time of their deaths.
Seven generations of their descendants remained in Virginia --most spread throughout the Valley of Virginia.
Others migrated on to the Carolinas, Kentucky, and as far west as Texas.

His father could have been George, Jacob, or John as I find them all in the area around that time.

John was the oldest known child of "Dr." Wesley B. and Isabelle Kessler Salyards. (Wesley was a younger brother of the much better known Prof. Joseph Monterville Salyards.) John was probably in Ohio in his childhood and teens. On 24 Mar 1858, John married Mary Jane Hadley in LaSalle Co., IL. (They divorced in 1866.)

The Rockingham Co.,VA records shows a marriage license granted for John to marry his cousin's daughter, Laura Virginia Salyards. This may not have occurred.

K. Haddad


Tucker, William

NY – c. 1750


When William was 11 years old c. 1756, Chippewa (Ojibwah) Indians from Fort Detroit in Michigan scalped William's Father, Robert, in Shenandoah Co., Va. They captured William and two brothers, took them to Fort Detroit where the Indians handed over his father's scalp for payment to the British, then went back to their village a little to the north. William was raised by the Indians and freed at age 18.
In 1773 he returned to Shenandoah Co. where he married Catherine Hazle at Stovers Town, then returned with her to Michigan. They continued to live in the fort and he worked as an interpretor and liaison between the Indians and whites.
Probably because he had to make such drastic adjustments when raised by Indians, William learned to adjust to the ever-changing political climate of the area. Southern Michigan was controlled by and part of Great Britain until 1759, France until 1783, then as several American territories. Through all this time, William learned to adjust to whoever was in control, although he always remained on the side of the Americans. Still, he tried to be friendly to all, and even warned the British major that Chief Pontiac was planning to attack Fort Detroit, a plan that was then thwarted.
In 1780, six Indian chiefs told him they would give him all the land he could walk off in one day. What he got was over 4000 and 250 years later became an air force base. The deed is in Greenfield Village, a historical collection in Dearborn, Michigan, developed by Henry Ford.

Remained in Shenandoah Co. VA. Died in Burlington, Mineral Co. WVA while visiting daughter. His wife, Susannah Miller Wine,


The Wine family were originally from Austria, emigrating to Germany, where they settled, and then to America. Originally there were educated people, of nobility, closely affiliated with the ruler of Austria. Once surnames were required in their area of Austria, they were given permission to take the name of the place they were living, Vienna, as their family name, thus it was originally Wien. The family, headed by Johann George Wien and Margaretta Wien emigrated from the Rhine River Valley near Heidelberg, Germany, sailing from Rotterdam, Holland, on the ship "Elliot", landing at Philadephia PA on 24 August 1749. They fled Germany because of great civil and religious persecutions. They went to Germantown, settling in York Co. PA. Johann wrote his name often as George Wien and George Wein. Their name was anglocized to WINE. They were members of the German Baptist Brethern, known as Tunkers or Dunkards, and were part of the Little Conewago Brethren congregation. After York Co., they moved to Lancaster Co. PA. They had 2 sons, Michael Wine and Adam Wine. Michael Wine moved to Shenandoah Co. VA, as part of the Brethren migration to Virginia, with his friends Martin Garber and Daniel Miller. He married Daniel Miller's sister, Susannah Miller and they had 12 children, 6 of whom were born in Shenandoah Co. Va.
