I am in desparate search of information regarding my great-great grandfather Hiram G. Cumbie ca. 1832-1904 (I honestly believe the dates are too far in the past due to the fact that his children were born between 1888-1900). All I know is that he was from Virginia and his spouse is Mollie nee Williams, with children Burke Anderson, Ott, Frances Stewart, Grover Cleveland, and Frank. I have done a lot of research, short of travelling to Virginia from Ohio, and have come up short.

I am trying to find out whom my gr-gr-gr-gr-grandparents were. My gr-gr-gr-grandfather was Joseph Norman who was born in VA Jan 15, 1802. Joseph died Jul 26, 1868 in Indiana. I do not know if he had any siblings or not or a middle name either. He and his family moved to Ohio at some point and he married Susannah Fisher (b Feb 11, 1815 in Perry County, OH). They remained there long enough to have at least one child born there (Thomas B Norman b Jul 15, 1844). They also had 3 more children one of whom I believe was born in Ohio also and the other two in Indiana. Their names were Daniel, Amanda, and Sarah. They all died in Indiana. Thank you for your time and help!

I am searching for grave/cemetery information on Mary Catherine (Masters) Bird, wife of Oscar Adam Bird. She was born in 1857 in Doe Hill/Monterey, VA and is listed as dying in Winchester.
It is believed she was living with her daughter Martha (Bird) Babb, who along with her husband Clem operated a rest home along the main highway. Ifanyone knows where I can locate info on the rest home it would be appreciated. I understand it was demolished in the 60's to make room for a nursing home.
Any help is appreciated.

I am looking for any information regarding my great-great-great grandfather, John Curry. He had a son Hiram Curry who I have traced him through. Hiram lived in Illinois. I found records for the family through the United State Census of 1850 that places John in Mifflin, Allegheny, Pennsylvania and states that he was born in Virginia around 1805. Probably like a lot of men of his time, he was a farmer. He was married to a woman from PA named Jane. That's about all I have. I know this is probably a stretch, but if anyone has a starting point for me to search I would be obliged.

Isham Parsonswas born in 1796 somewhere in Virginia, likely in the area that is now West Virginia. His parents were likely John and Patty Parsons. His siblings, Henry, Saley, Betsy, and Joseph, born between 1797 and 1802 were also likely born in Virginia. Does anyone have any idea on where these individuals may have been born in Virginia. There are a lot of Parsons in Jackson County, West Virginia, but I can't find any documentation.

Looking for anyone with information that would help me link my Kentucky BEVERLY line to Virginia Beverlys. To the best of my knowledge, there is no direct linkage of my line to the Robert BEVERLEY line of Beverly Manor, nor can I find any linkage to the BEVERLY line who went to NC, or the infamous John Beverly of the battle of Kings Mountain. My earliest proven ancestor is Stephen Beverly, b. 1781-2 in Virginia, was in Montgomery County, KY in 1799 & 1800, then married a Lucy THORNHILL went to Harrison County, KY, ending up in Grant County, KY where he lived until his death in 1852. I have good reason to believe his mother was named Naomi ?, and his father possibly a John Beverly who lived in Lincoln County, KY and died ca 1795-6. Naomi married second in 1800 in Montgomery County, KY to a David Woodroof/ Woodruffe. I am looking for any Beverly/ Beverley, perhaps a John Beverly who married a Naomi, in Virginia. Marriage was probably ca 1775-1780. There is a John Beverly in Hampshire County, VA (now WVa) on the 1782 and 1784 Tax Lists w/ five free whites and no slaves in his household. I have long suspected he may be the John who came to Lincoln County as did other pioneers of Hampshire and Hardy Counties, but I've found nothing to connect these two. So, I'm asking if anyone has anything that might refer to a John Beverly/Beverley (or any Beverly) marrying someone named Naomi, when it took place, and what county in Virginia they lived. Also, anyone who may know what happened to the John Beverly/Beverley in Hampshire County, VA after 1784.

I am looking for information about Arthur Mcfaddin (McFadden) b. 1892 Mar, in Virginia d in the 1930s. Upshur Co. WV. He "seems" to have shown up on the 1900 Federal Census. I believe he is listed as a nephew for John and Milly McFaddin as an 8 yo living in Garden District Buchanon, Va. Both Milly and John are 41 at the time.
He is my maternal great grandfather, he married Nancy Roberts b.1897 in WV and died in Danville, Ohio in 1970s. They raised their children in Buckhannon, WV, including my grandmother Lillie Ruhemia McFaddin b. Jan 27, 1914 WV d.5/19/1977 in Garretsville, Ohio and her sister Bertha McFaddin ( my stepgrandmother).
Oral history in the family is that Arthur was dropped along with a sister in an orphanage while young, his mother was ill. Eventually she passed on, and the father ran off. I am trying to synchronize these two different versions of what happened to him. I know he was not adopted out to anyone (per my stepgrandmother) and he did run away from the orphanage and had plans to go back and get his sister (not sure if that ever happened). Since I am interested in tracing this family line, I was wondering if anyone could give me some pointers in what direction to take here.
Is there a chance my Arthur is the same as the one who lived with his uncle? It would be easier to me if that was the case. This may never be solved, but I will try.
Thanks for any help you can give.

My 3 greats grandfather, George Latham Lawton, got married in Norfolk, Va to Anna Maria Haghill on June 5, 1823. An affidavit of the marriage was recorded in his home town of Newport, RI. She is buried in Baltimore, Md.
I have searched everywhere and cannot find any family named Haghill. The only Haghill I have found is a town in Scotland.
George L. Lawton was a professional clerk and served during the War of 1812 as Captain's Clerk to Commander Arthur Sinclair who was from Virginia. After to war he served as secretary to Sinclair for 5 years. I am sure he knew how to spell his wife's name.
Is it possible that there is a family in Virginia with a similar name? Is it possible she was a connection of Sinclair's? I live in New Jersey and can't get down to Norfolk. Do you have any suggestions on where to look?
Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you,

Henry Snider, born 13 JUN 1774, Virginia, possibly married Elizabeth Hessar in Ross county Ohio between 1801 and 1810. Henry appeared on a 1806 tax roll in Ross county. Henry Snider and his mother-in-law, Ann Hesser are buried in the same small family cemetery in Fayette county, Ohio.
He was joined by a Jacob Snider born before 1775 who married a Mary Caylor in Loudon county and by a William, who married a Sarah Baccus in Fayette co, PA in 1801 (previously Monongalia co. VA.) Any help in finding the relationship of these 3 Sniders (brothers) or where they came from would be greatly appreciated.
We found Henry, Jacob and William Snider's father William in Loudon county, VA where they were named in the record of William Sr.'s estate. Where they came from before that is still a mystery. Thanks! Martha
