At a court held for Montgomery Co. May 8, 1782 a John RIDDLE, seven year old orphan of William RIDDLE was bound to James NEWELL until age 21. Can anyone account for this John RIDDLE beyond this time? At the same time his brother James was bound to James McCORKLE. Thanks

I am trying to find out what happened to land that was owned by Shorten Smith on Pilot mountain. He purchased the land 1795-1800 or so. The land was said to be known as Cock Pit. Shorten and Lavinia (______) Smith were the parents of Joanna who married Jedediah Mitchum in Tazewell Co. Va, Viney who married Ziba Mitchum in Tazewell, and Mary (Polly) who married Eli Blankenship and Isaiah, among others I'm sure. I am trying to find out if Shorten lived on this land long or if he moved to other land he had. The other land was in Tazewell (McDowell Co. WV now). Thank you,

Searching for a William H. WADE who was born in Virginia (possibly Montgomery Co. around 1800. He had a son, William M. WADE about 1826. I do now know his wife's name. They moved to Wilson County TN then Smith (now Dekalb County) TN. between 1830-1840. William H. Wade died in 1840 in Smithville TN. I found a William WADE who married an Emily CROW on July 7 1819 in Montgomery Co., VA but I am now sure if this is the Willam Wade I am searching for. Any information would be great. Thanks,

Would appreciate any help in finding records on the origins and family of Thomas ISBELL (b.1784, Montgomery Co., VA, d. 1862, Monticello, Wayne Co.,KY), said to be the son of Godfrey ISBELL (b. Franklin Co., GA) and Hannah __. Thomas ISBELL is thought to have had sisters named Sarah and Nancy. Thomas ISBELL's numerous children include James Morris ISBELL (b. 1824, Wayne Co., KY) who married Elizabeth ALEXANDER in 1841. Does any one have more information (or corrections)? Note: this is not the Thomas ISBELL who married Discretion HOWARD. Thanks,

My search for my g3-grandpa's origin now leads me to Montgomery County, VA based on information from a 1782 Tax tithe list. A Henry Lambert was taxed for 6 horses and 10 cattle in Montgomery County, 1782. My Henry Lambert was born about 1760, unknown where. He died in 1843. His will was proved in Shenandoah County, VA on March 13, 1843. He married Elizabeth (unknown maiden), born about 1765 in PA. She died in 1853 in Shenandoah County, VA. She is buried in the Lambert/Wolverton cemetery. Henry and Elizabeth's children were Catherine (m. George Miller, ShenCo 1818), Julia (m. Henry Marshall), Elizabeth (m. Jacob Grandstaff, ShenCo 1830), David (m. Rebecca Marshall, ShenCo 1827) and Henry (m. Anna Naugle, ShenCo 1830). Henry (Sr.) appears in the 1810, 1830 and 1840 ShenCo census but not the 1820 census. As luck would have it, there are no Marshall families in ShenCo in 1810 or 1820. I think that Henry and family may have left Shenandoah County, where David and Julia may have met their Marshall mates, and then returned prior to 1827. Does anyone have information or a connection to the Henry Lambert that was in Montgomery County, VA in 1782? Thanks,
