Do you know if there a chart of inscriptions or a location of the Old Holmes Church and Cem. available and if not is there someone working on it. Please, at least answer with a location of this Cem. that is in Jefferson County. There is reason for me to believe there is a William D. SCOTT buried there which may be my wife's GGGgrandfather.

ANDREWS, MULLINNEX, PARKER, PIERCE posted by Carolyn Cole on Wednesday, September 13, 2000

I am researching my father's side of the family (MULLINNEX). I just found out that my ggrandfather, Jason MULLINNEX, married a Harriet PIERCE from Jefferson county, Oh. on November 18, 1866 . They then went back to his home in Jackson county, WV. Would you happen to have any information on the PIERCE family? Harriet was supposed to be 20 years old at the time of the marriage. My father can remember visiting relatives in Wellsville and Mingo Junction in the 1930's. Their names were PARKER and ANDREWS. I don't know if these would have been relatives of Harriets or not. Any information you could give me would be appreciated.

BAKE, LARGE, MCCLURE, MILLER posted by Earl Bake on Sunday, September 24, 2000

I am seeking information on other descendants of my great-grandfather, William BAKE (1804-1878), who had a large farm in Warren Township, Jefferson County. He and my grandfather, William A. BAKE (1844-1896) are buried in Hopewell Cemetery. My father, Earl A. BAKE (1895-1965) was born near Rayland; his mother Sarah MILLER (?-1919) was the second wife of William A. BAKE Dad knew little of his ancestry because his father had died when Dad was n infant..Dad later left the area and lived in Wellsville, Columbiana County, for most of his life. I have no information on the ancestry or relatives of my grandmother, Sarah MILLER. She is buried in Hopewell Cemetery, although William A. BAKE was buried beside his first wife. An old map of Warren Township shows a large MILLER farm. Was there a connection? One daughter of William BAKE, Ellen BAKE (1836-1910) married George MCCLURE. Dad was raised by MC CLURES after his father died, and I would like to know more about them. They had at least five children including Frank and Lulu, whom I Knew; they were unmarried and lived near Rayland when I visited with Dad George, Ellen, and some of their children are buried at Hopewell Cemetery. I was a pall bearer for Frank about 50 years go, but I have no dates on this family. Were there any children? Any surviving descendants? Another daughter was Angelina BAKE (b: abt. 1854) who married Robert LARGE. I knew an Anna LARGE who may have been a daughter. Were there others? ...any survivors. There is a LARGE burial plot in Hopewall Cemetery. I am unable to get back to that area now to do further research, but I am trying to get as much information as possible. Help will be appreciated.
