Searching for information on 2 surnames in unknown Va counties:
Tappan, also spelled Tappen, Tappin, Tapping, etc. The name was listed in some early Michigan records under Lappin, Sappin, Fapping, and Topping. Some of the errors may be due to handwriting interpretation.
AND Crawford. This family name was listed as Cranford in the 1880 CD done by LDS.
The Tappans and Crawfords moved from NE sometime after 1885 and before 1890. My grandmother was born "somewhere near Richmond" but I do not know the county. She and her parents show up in Newport News by the 1900 census but she was not born in Warwick county. Her maternal grandparents, the Tappans are no longer with the family in 1900 and may not have made it all the way to Virginia. But, we believe that they may have died in VA. I am hoping someone else searching these names might be able to help me or I them. Thanks.

    I am seeking information regarding a Collin (Colin?) Campbell born 1760 in SC, NC, or VA according to later Censuses and Federal Mortality Tables. He died in Sumner Co., TN in 1850 and is buried there beside a "consort" named Nancy (maiden name unknown). His earliest known presence in Sumner Co., TN is 1806. This county is within the NC Military Reservation and he settled north of the Cumberland River. His known children Margaret, Colin, David, James, Jehosaphat, Mary, and Nancy were born in the late 1790's and the first decade of the 1800's possibly to two different mothers. Collin's family had ties to Neal McLean (McLain, McLane, MacLean, etc) who lived in Christian Co., KY who had married a daughter of a Daniel Campbell in NC who had given Neal McLean and wife Mary Campbell McLean the property in KY. Collin's daughter Nancy married Neal's son John. Collin's son Jehosaphat married Neal's daughter, Margaret. Any help connecting Collin and Daniel Campbell east of the Appalachians and tracking the ancestors of Collin Campbell would be greatly appreciated.

    We have an ancestor who arrived in Philadelphia in 1750 on the Ship Patience. He was supposed to have lived in VA for a while before moving to Bedford Co., PA where his son was born. His name is John Peter Wineland born in Germany in 1731 and dying in 1794 in Westmoreland Co., PA. He had a couple of children with him. Some may have come over as indentured servants. If you should happen to know anything about these folks and where they might have been in VA, please let us know. His last name may have been spelled Wineland, Wieland, Wyland, Wiland, etc. Thanks for your help.
