I am looking for marriage information for John SHEETS and Eliza OHATS.
John was born in 1831 in Wood County, Virginia. Wood County became a part of West Virginia when it was granted statehood in 1863. Eliza was born in 1836 in Virginia, presumably West Virginia also. I have no source for the OHATS surname.
They were married about 1854. Our records show Ohio, though there is no source for this. They appear to have children born in both Ohio and (West) Virginia. The 1860 Census shows them living in Wood County, Virginia.
A new YDNA project attempting to tie males with any variant of the surname Nipp/Knipp to their immigrant ancestors. This project is for males with any variation of the Nipp/Knipp surname, or males who suspect they are from that surname line. Thus, the individual who tests must be a male who wants to check his direct paternal line (father's father's father's...) with a Y-DNA12, Y-DNA37, Y-DNA67, or Y-DNA111 test and who has one of the surnames listed for the project, or genetically matches one of the surnames in the project.
Although females do not carry their father's Y-DNA, those who would like to check their father's direct paternal line can have a male relative with his surname order a Y-DNA test.
I am looking for the father and mother of my Grandfather Reverand Henry John Simpkins, whom was born in West Virginia on 14 March 1885, in Mingo WV, died in Jolo, McDowell County West Virginia on 21 Sept 1954. Henry married Minity Ellis on 1 Jan 1906 in Logan County WV. On a copy of his marriage records, it shows that his father was H. Simpkins and his Mother was M. Mounts. I have censuses that back date me to 1910 where he was living with his father in law Phillip Ellis Senior. I have not been able to trace him further back in time. I know that he said that his daddy was also born in West Virginia, but I cannot find out anything! If someone would give me some information it would be greatly appreicated.
When going back to the 1900 Census in Mingo, WV I am showing that his Mother was Martha Mounts and he was also listed as Henry Mounts. She was a laundress, Could it be that Henry was born out of wedlock or the tragic death of a coal miner (I know that it happened a lot in West Virginia during those times) I am showing that it is possibel (through family talk) that he had a half brother Willard H. Hatfield) I do not have any evidence that this it indeed correct, Thank you Alan!
В 1919-25 годах старший брат моего дедушки, Иван Матвеевич Арцишевский ( родился 19.09.1860 г. в сенненском уезде Могилёвской губернии), с частью семьи эмигрировал в Америку. Родители Ивана: отец Матвей Леонович Арцишевский (р.1829 г.) , мать Гудзиловская Антонина. В семье были: сёстры Марьяна и Констанция, младший брат Михаил (родился 22.03.1863 г., умер в 1919 году). В России ( по неподтверждённым данным) остался сын Владислав, расстрелянный НКВД в 1937 году. Прошу откликнуться потомков Ивана.
My Grandfather Robert Johnson Black American born in Virginia apx late 1800's recently I had info passed to me that his parents were Robert and Alice Johnson born apx 1850's Virginia America, I had heard possibly his father was called Robert but had no other info on his family, he came to the UK in Jan 1917 and went on to marry my Grandmother Rosina Drake (Nee Barber) she was white British.
I have some militry info on him, what would be the best way to confirm Alice and Robert were his parents and also find out more info on him, as he died when my father was only about 2 years old, I have a picture of him and also I believe one of his father.
I am looking for any information on the death of Luceba (Stalnaker) Taylor, wife of Guy Taylor. She died when my great grandfather was about 3 (1897ish). I don't know if she was buried in Mouse Cemetery with many other Taylor's, or in another cemetery since there are a lot of Stalnaker's and may have had their own plots.
Any information would be GREAT. I have Taylors and Stalnakers repeated in that side of the family tree, so if you're related - let me know!! ~~Amanda
I am looking for ancestors of my grandfather, Milo Leonard Ingram. He had a son from his first marriage to Okla Lanham named Harold Ingram. He had two children with my grandmother, Zina Opal Slater. They were Doris Charlene and Audrey Anne.
Milo died in 1933 under mysterious circumstances. At that time he was a resident of Nicholas County WV. I don't know his father's name but I believe it was George. The family story is that he died in Florida and was lost while deep sea fishing when Milo was about 14 years old. Milo's mother's first name was Sara Jane Marion. He had a twin brother, Ami Leonidas Ingram and another brother George. If anyone has any information concerning Milo or his ancestry it would be greatly appreciated.
