GREEN, MULLINS, SKYBERRY -
My great great grandparents Adam and Francis (?) Mullins lived in Franklin county. There my great grandfather was born, David Mullins abt. 1825. I believe a son Waley was born also. I can not find the marriage of Adam and Francis Mullins in any state. I find Adam Mullins in the census for Franklin county. I would guess my great grandpa David Mullins leaves Franklin county to Wyoming county W. Va. about 1850. On his way he marries, I can not find his marriage. I do find a daughter Mary Mullins at age 16 marrying the brother of David Mullins' 2nd wife Mary Polly Green in Wyoming W. Va. in Jan. 1869. There is a strong story told about my Mullins family group. The story goes that we were once Skyberry. Because of the persecution of the German decent of Skyberry, one of my greats grandfathers took the maiden name of his mother which was Mullins. Anyone that can give me any information of persecutions of family because of where they were from would be helpful. Anybody that can give me info on the above marriages, births, family connections would be appreciated. Perhaps some one is related to this Mullins group, please write to me. Thank you,
Rev. Jim Mullins

HUNT -
Searching for personal information about a Thomas Hunt who lived in a part of Bedford which became Franklin. He had patent to 304 acres S. Side Staunton R. 1780. In 1783 this Thomas Hunt made joint deed with wife Ann to Benj. Clardy for 206 acres of same tract. 1785 he had another Survey for 300 acres S. Side Staunton (no patent found). In 1786 he & wife Ann sold remainder of 1st patent to John Hook (Franklin Co. DB 1). 1788 Thomas Hunt, John Hook, Wm Smith witnessed will of Joel Meador in Franklin. 1789 Thomas Hunt on Franklin Jury. In 1791 Thomas Hunt, John Hook, Wm Smith & John Taylor witnessed deed from Wm Martin to Thomas Charter (sic) on Gills Creek. This Thomas Hunt and Ann basicially disappear from the Franklin records after 1791. Need documentable proof for age of this Thomas Hunt, surname of his wife Ann, names of children if any, and what became of each of them after ca 1791.
