I am looking for the parents of James M. JOHNSON (b 1825) and his wife Harriett H. or P. CLAUGHTON (b 1837). They were married Sept 22 1852 in Franklin County, VA. They then migrated to Sedalia, Pettis County, MO in 1860.

On the 1850 Franklin Co. census there are two Poff families listed.

  1. William, wife(?) Nancy, Daniel, William, Thomas, Burwell, John and Sarah.
  2. Peter, wife Catherine (Radford?), John, Letitia, Margaret, Lewis, and Sydny.
Can anyone give me any information on these two families? Who were the parents of William and Peter Poff? Were they related to the Floyd Co. Poffs? Thanks.

Would like to compare notes with someone working on Gwin Dudley families to clarify his children and their families. Am especially interested in sons, Thomas DUDLEY and James DUDLEY. My maternal grandparents were both Dudleys and I believe these men were their respective ggg-grandparents. Have limited information but am willing to share. Gwin Dudley moved from Lunenberg County, Va. to Bedford County, Va. ca 1779. I do not know where or when he was born. (Someone can help with that too!!) He built a home near Kemp's Ford, Franklin County, chimney inscribed "GD 1795". I think the part of Bedford County he settled in was the part that became part of Franklin County when Franklin was established. He married Mary Pasley in Franklin County 17 Aug 1797.

I am seeking any and all info on the ancestors of Andrew (M?) REED (c1795 - c1845) who lived and died in present-day Floyd Co., VA. He apparently married a woman by the name of Elizabeth (surname unknown) and his (male) children were Michael M. (c1831 - 1912), Fleming (c1836 - 1864; died of pneumonia in a Civil War P.O.W. Camp), John M. (c1839 - c 1910), my direct ancestor, and Andrew Michael Reed (c1842 - ?). I do know that there's a record of him selling a portion of his 100-ac tract along Beaver Creek in Floyd Co. In 1837 and this leads me to believe that he's related to the "Reed Family Patriarch" in Floyd Co., George Reed, Sr. (1730 -1807), Who purportedly moved to this area from Franklin Co. circa 1780. I don' t think, however, that Andrew's "directly" related to George unless its through George's son Michael (bc 1760) on whom I can find no information at all, other than an 1810 VA census record placing him in Rockbridge Co., VA. Any info on the ancestors of Andrew Reed (c1795 - c1845), or George Reed's son Michael would be appreciated. P.S. The Andrew Reed I'm looking for is not Andrew A. Reed, the Floyd Co. Minister (c1809-c1880).

Looking for any information on these great-grandparents of mine, probably born around 1880 or so.
1. Willie Oscar ENGLISH m'd Melinda Bennie (?) GWALTNEY. I know "Zero" about the GWALTNEYs, so am searching for her parents to start. Need parents of Willie as well.
2. Robert Lee WRAY m'd Mary Lee SINK. Have leads on the SINK, but nothing that connects her to a WRAY. Help??
3. James Nicholas TATE married Susie Pearlina DOWDY; have "zero" on these folks. (They were my Great-grandparents.)
4. My grandmother, Reva TATE, married Lawrence Everett ASHWORTH. Have NO info. on him. He was my grandfather, so he would've been born around 1905, later than the other individuals I'm searching for.
ENGLISH/ WRAY/ SINK/ GWALTNEY/ ASHWORTH/ TATE were all known to have resided in either Roanoke County, Bedford County, or Franklin County. Thank you!!
