Family records indicate Issac Johnson was born 20 March 1820 in Virginia. We believe from other records that it must have been either Franklin or Botetourt County. Issac married Hannah Little who was born December 11, 1802 in Franklin County. We would like to verify their marriage date and location. Also parents of each are unknown. Any information about specific sites or organizations to contact for this information would certainly be appreciated.

Children of John JONES and Sarah SUMPTER, all of whom are mentioned in John JONES will (1847, Randolph county IN) are: Solomon, Elizabeth, Franke (Fanny), Lucy, Abigail, Sarah, Sinthy, Allean (Alice), Anna (my line)..

I am looking for anything on the parents of Jonathon Hale who died in Scott, Co.. His death certificate lists birth 1796 in Franklin Co., parents as Richard and Maatilda ?? Hale . The writing is very hard to decipher but I had a researcher look at the name and she felt this was correct. These were my gr-gr-gr grandfather and ggggrand mother and I have hit a stone wall now. In the 1790 census done by Thomas Hale ,there are 2 Hales {John and Thomas}. I have seen Thomas Hale's genealogy and I do not find a connection. Jonothan went to Scott Co. His children were William, John S., James C. and Henderson Hale. Henderson died in 1850s. William went to Barry CO, Mo as did John and his wife Nancy. John is listed on the census as a Deputy clerk or Sheriff. William died in Mo. and his wife Kezziah went back to Scott Co with her children. Some stayed in Scott Co and some to Rockcastle Co, Ky. I have no idea what happened to John and Nancy or if they had children

Does anyone have information on a John WILSON who married Elizabeth ???? (maybe in Franklin County in 1700s). They had nine children when he wrote his will in Barren County, KY, in 1809. I have reason to believe that they were from Franklin County, VA, since I understand their daughter Delilah Wilson, married John RITTER in Franklin County in 1793. I especially would like a marriage date and place for John and Elizabeth WILSON and Elizabeth's maiden name.
