BERKSHIRE, CAMPBELL, MCKINNEY, PIERCE, SAUNDERS, WEBB, WILLIS -
I am searching for information regarding Lee or E. E. Willis (born in 1798 in Virginia) and Ann Webb (born 1809 in Virginia) who married 3-5-1827 in Franklin County, Virginia. They had a family including: Thomas E. b. 1829 in VA, William b. 1830 in VA., Mary Ann b. 1831 in MO, Jane b. 1838 in MO, Lee Jr. b. 1840 in MO (married Sarah F. Campbell), Harriet b. 1841 in MO, Matilda b. 1843 in MO (married J. B. Pierce), Charles Cobb (my great grandfather) b. 1846 in MO (married Julia McKinney) 12-19-1871, Joel b. 1848 in MO, Tampo b. 1849, in VA?, Fleming b. 1-10-1850 and died 8-5-1859. When Lee married his guardian F. Saunders signed for him. Ann died 4-2-1852 and Lee married Sally Ann Berkshire. Lee later became so frail and his mind failed so that the younger child or children were left to a guardian. He evidently was always called Lee Willis, but on his gravestone, it says E. E. Willis. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My address is:

HALE, TURNBULL, WOODS -
Looking for the parents and other family information on Citizen S. Woods. Citizen shows up on the 1820 Franklin County VA Census, page 168. I believe he was born in Franklin County in 1799 (on the 1860 Carroll County TN Census he states his age as 61 and birthplace as VA). Franklin married Jane Hale in Franklin County VA on 15 March 1821. Jane was born in Franklin County VA 1798-1800. Jane is the daughter of Sarah Turnbull (b. abt 1771) and Joseph Hale (b. abt 1770) who were married in Franklin VA 21 July 1797. I would appreciate any information.

PEARSON, PIERSON -
I am looking for parents and/or siblings of James Pearson/ Pierson born 1816. He may have been married to a woman named Frances (?). In 1846 he was residing in Henry County, Indiana. The 1860 Indiana Census has him as born in Virginia. One of my ancestral family lines has a Nancy Pearson born 1809 as being from Franklin County, Virginia. She resided in the same community as James Pearson/Pierson. Since several of my family lines travelled together, I am hoping that James and Nancy were related and that he was from Franklin County, Virginia. Any information on James Pearson/Pierson would be appreciated. Thank you,

FRAZIER -
Am looking for my 4GGrandfather, John Frazier, who married Mary ????. I suspect that John and Mary Frazier were probably born in the Franklin Co area, and may have been born around 1750. They "settled" in what was then Russell Co., VA, now Scott Co., in the spring of 1772. They had son Joseph, born in 1771 and son, Solomon, born in Fairfax County, VA in 1773. I would like to find their marriage record, birth records, and who and from where their parents were. I believe they removed to Fairfax County from Moccasin Creek in Scott Co. for only a short while to escape the frequent and tragic Indian raids in what was then Russell Co. I would be happy to hear from anyone also researching the Fraziers in VA, who moved on from there into TN and KY in the late 1700s and 1800s. Most moved to Floyd and Letcher Counties in KY.
