SURNAMES: FORTH
Recieved word that a cousin of my mothers past away in December. His name was Byrdell FORTH and he lived on Teams or Teens Run Road West of Gallipolis. I searched the Gallipolis paper for an obit but could not find one. I also hear a sister either Dorothy or perhaps Bonnie, past away either a week or two before or after Byrdell. I would like to contact Brydells family. I think he had a daughter (maybe named Lisa of Sandy) that lived very near him, but cannot remember her last name. Can anyone supply the name, address, or phone number for any of Brydells children of grandchildren. I wish to send my sympathy and keep connected with family of my mothers. Hoping to hear from someone who knows the Forths.

SURNAMES: MCMILLEN, MCMILLIN, HIGLEY, JONES
Ruth Higley was born 1808 in Gallia county, daugher of Elam HIGLEY and Jane MCMILLION (MCMILLIN). I believe this Jane McMillin was the daughter of Edward Tate McMillin and Sarah Reed, born 1787. However, other researchers show this Jane married to Thomas Jones on 24 Nov 1812. I believe this is Jane's SECOND marriage as Gallia County records show "Elim Higley married to Jane McMillion" on 18 June 1806. IT IS HIGHLY UNLIKELY THAT THERE WAS MORE THAN ONE Jane McMillin of the proper age to be Ruth's mother WAS living in Gallia County in 1808! Is is just COINCIDENCE that Ruth Higley and William Adney were married on 24 May 1822 by J.P. Edward McMillin? This Edward would then be Ruth's Grandfather, if his Daughter Jane is her mother. Well, she must be. Only makes sense. And that's all there is to it!

I am looking for any information about Vincent R. LINENKUGEL(1917-1942; son of David and Essie Buchanan LINENKUGEL) who was living in Gallia County in the early 1940s or possibly before. In his enlistment papers for the Army Air Corps, he listed Gallia Co. as his place of residence and his occupation as an auto mechanic. Vincent died at an air base in Mississippi in 1942 - non-battle related death - he died of a heat stroke and carbon monoxide poisoning. Some family members believe that Vincent was married, but I can find no records of a marriage. In 1982, Vincent's Aunt Anna BUCHANAN BIDDIX was visiting someone in Gallipolis and she died of a massive heart attack while there. Anna BIDDIX lived in NC and her body was returned to NC for burial.

Margaret Jane would have been my great-great-great Grandmother. I have found numerous family trees on the web but, none of them include Margaret Jane WADDELL. I have photograhs of Margaret Jane's gravesite in Hulbert Cemetery.
