Unknown William HENDERSON
Hello David,I just discovered that William DAVIS, b. Hanover, Louisa Co, VA is also your ancestor.  He is my 5th ggrandfather, the father of John who m. Nancy SINGLETON. Since your site is private, I can't enter it unless I receive an invitation from you.  I'd really appreciate the opportunity to visit your site, or become a member, if many of our relatives are the same.  I also have DAVIS ancestors connected with HENDERSONS.  Asael DAVIS, Jr. m. Elizabeth HENDERSON, and their daughter, Barbara Henderson DAVIS m. James Preston HAWKINS. That couple are my gggrandparents.  Hoping to hear from you soon. Thanks, Betty Sullivan

David V. Hughey William HENDERSON
Hi Betty,How do I invite you?  Though it says, I was webmaster of the Hughey Web Site sincd June 6, 2007, myheritage only recently made me aware of the site.  Though I'm descended from both Henderson and Hawkins families, John Henderson, who married Nancy Singleton, is my 5th cousin, 8 generations removed.  I do have a lot of collateral lines posted.  My dad's father is descended from the Henderson family, and my dad's mother from the Hawkins one.  I'm still searching for my elusive Hughey ancestors, though.The other things that I should tell you is (1) that I have been rebuilding my computer files since my computer crashed November 2006 and (2) that I have not recently been able to put an updated file on (I do have two older files that myheritage transfered directly from gencircles).  I don't know if I've changed any data in the lines in which you are interested, but if so, I can provide you with appropriate updates.Sincerely,Dr. David V. Hughey

Robin VanDeWeghe Stearns Family
I've just started at this web sight.  I see that you have the Stearns in your family history, how are you related?  Louisa Stearns Prescott is my Great Grandmother.  Geneology has come along way in the past decade!  Funny, I have a copy of family history done in the 19th century at the vatican~what would they think of web sights like this!

David V. Hughey Stearns Family
Robin,The only Louisa Stearns I have was born on January 6, 1886; she's my 15th cousin, twice removed.  I have a couple of family connections to her.  Common ancestors include the Nevilles and the Sutton (or Dudley) family; given that we are distant "cousins," the relationships are a number of generations back.  Edmund Sutton, Lord Dudley, was my 13th great-grandfather.  I descend from the first wife, Joyce de Tiptoft; Louisa Stearns descends from the second, Matilda de Clifford.  I can also give you common ancestors for the Neville family between Louisa and me.  Is this your Louisa Stearns?My sister-in-law (My brother Rick's wife) is descended from the Watermans, but neither I nor brother Rick are. Bye for now,Dr. David V. Hughey.

Anita Madden Melinda Caudill
Hi,I am new to this, so please bear with me.  I see you have Melinda Caudill listed on your site.  My parental grandparents names were Stephen H. Brown and Melinda (Caudill) Brown.  My grandmother's birthdate was February 2, 1887.  Is this the same person you have listed?  I would also like more information on my Grandpa Brown's heritage if you have any availble.  I know that his parents names were William "Billy" Brown, born Oct 26 1858, died Nov 23, 1927 and Sarah "Sallie" (Caudill) Brown, born Feb 23, 1860, died Feb 29,1920.  I haven't been able to find anything farther back on my Brown relatives than William "Billy" Brown, my great grandfather.  Any information or advise would be greatly appreciated.Thanks,Bead Nut

Your grandmother was my 4th cousin, once removed. She was descended from William Turner Hampton and Mary Proffitt; I'm descended from  Mary's sister, Sarah Elizabeth Profftt.  I don't have much on William Brown; I do have his birth date and his death date. Unfortunately, I don't have any ancestral information on him.I have been rebuilding my files since November 2006 when my computer crashed.Sincerely,Dr. David  V.

Jason Parsons Arbogast branch
Dear Mr. Hughley, We share a branch on the Arbogast line.  Can you give me access to your tree so I can fill in the holes?  Thanks much. Regards, Melissa and Jason Parsons

David V. Hughey Arbogast branch
Good morning, Jason,I should have a more up-to-date tree on this coming Sunday, I've got several "old" trees on and I'm not too sure when I can replace them with a new one on MyHeritage.  I have had to rebuild my trees from the time my computer crashed in November 2006 and the rebuilding is still in process.  My user name on is david_hughey.  I believe all my Arbogast information on MyHeritage are on my "old" trees, not on my smaller ones (Loftus, Ramsey).  I have the same user profile for all trees. If you still want access after you see what I have on, e-mail me at and I will see what I can do. Sincerely,David

Grace Knowles HI David,
I noticed that we share several members of the Peck family. I am the daughter of Faye L. Peck daughter of William Henry Peck son of George Washington Peck son of Jared George Peck. The Pecks originalated (to the best of my knowledge) from New Hampshire via Wisconsin. My branch went to Idaho in the 1850's or
1860's. They were very early day pioneers in the Camas Prairie (Fairfield/Soldier/Crighton area) They had a trading post on the trail from Fort Boise to Fort Hall.
Please let me know how we are connected.
Thanks so much
