I am trying to determine which Fairfax family my Wm. H. Fairfax b. 1808 in VA, belongs to. Research has led me to believe he was likely from the MD contingent some of whom settled in Prince William Co. Does anyone know anything abt. Fairfax families who were in Pr. Wm? One family belonged to Hezekiah Fairfax who died shortly bef. 1840. A Wm Fairfax is mentioned in the Chancery cases surrounding his death. I don't really think he is mine but nothing seems to be known of this Wm. Anyone know who he was and what happened to him. Thanks, -- Christina

Also, a Thom BRAGG is found in a poll list in Prince William Co.If anyone has any info on any BRAGG in Prince William County, I sure would appreciate if you would share this with me, no matter how small or unimportant the info may be!!

I am looking for any information on Benjamin KING,(wife Margaret ????) who probably lived in Loudoun County, Virginia during the late 1700s, early 1800s. I have seen summaries of a Benjamin KING will and Revolutionary War records referencing Loudoun County. Their children included Stephen, Sarah, Margaret, John, George, Daniel, Joshua, Rodeham and William.Benjamin's son Stephen KING(wife Priscilla ????) died about 1814 and his will is on file at the Prince William County courthouse at Manassas. Priscilla and her children and Ben's wife Margaret, plus at least John, Joshua and George KING moved to Logan County, Kentucky about or before 1815 and settled there.I would appreciate any information on any of these people; particularly Benjamin and his predecessors and contemporaries in the Northern Neck area of Virginia.Thanks, -- Ira King (former email: Benjamin@hop-uky.campus.mci.net)
There was a Rose Hill, just North of Dumfries occupied by the Muschett family, according to James Haynes essay on Cherry Hill. There is also a Rose Hill cemetery near Manassas. In the late 1850's there was a slave death reported from "Rose Hill" by a man named Weedon who, according to land records,owned land in Buck Hall, part of the larger Tudor Hall tract near Manassas. All this rambling is an effort to determine whether or not there were two "Rose Hills" in Prince William County. I've also seen a "Rose Mill" on a civil war map. If anyone has the answer please e-mail me at JacksonJ@aol.com. If I find the answer first, I'll report it here. Thanks, -- Rhonda Jackson

My forbears migrated from PW to Ky and later on to Illinois. While searching the Sangamon Co. genweb site I thought I'd seen the admin.'s name before. Are you the same for both ends of the trail?

Samuel Williams of Sangamon Co. There are Peeks and Williams all over the place out there. Do our research paths cross? I'm just curious because of the coincidence of you administering both sites.

My name is Edwin E. Powell. Live in Prince William County, VA and my e-mail addresses are eep4056@erols.com; EPowell436@AOL.com; and RBWR21A@prodigy.com. Researching in addition to the above names: POWELL, STEWART, TAYLOR, BALL, MASON, WENTWORTH. I am researching the Mathena, Metheny, Matheny, Metteneye, Matheney, Methenay and various other spellings family. Daniel Mathena our first ancestor in the Virginia Colonies came to Jamestown and then Charles Co.,MD in about 1660. He was a tobacco farmer on the western shore of MD near the Mattawoman Creek. He had several farms Mathena's Folly, Cowlands, and one or two others. He and several other Protestant farmers got into trouble along with Lt.Gov. Josiah Fendall of MD when they revolted in about 1681 against Lenonard Calvert, Lord Baltimore. Daniel was exiled to Virginia and ended up in Stafford County on the Aquia Creek near Hope Springs. He owned 500 acres on the Aquia Creek near Giles Brent's place. He died there on 14 Oct 1685 and his tombstone currently in the parish house of Aquia Episcopal Church, Overwharton Parish where they were members. They were there during the flamboyant ministry of Pastor John Waugh. Would be interested in corresponding with anyone researching this family, the GEORGE MASONs, the POWELLs of Loudoun County, or the Wentworths of Maryland. Daniel married Sarah Wentworth, daughter or widow of Thomas Wentworth, Gentleman, Wentworth-Woodhouse Plantation, Charles County, MD. Would love to hear from others researching any of these families. Thanks very much for providing this service. Best Regards -- Ed Powell
BOBO - Seek more information on Gabriel BOBO who died before 4 Oct. 1790 in Prince William Cnty., VA Widow was Elizabeth BOBO, who died after 16 Jan. 1813 and before 8 June 1813. Gabriel left all of his estate to his wife and in his will admonished his children not to "molest his widow," which indicates to me these were children by an earlier wife. It is believed that Israel BOBO, my third great grandfather, and other BOBOs who are found in Washington Cnty. and Athens Cnty., OH, ca. 1800 may be children of Gabriel. Gabriel is thought to be a son of Spencer BOBO of VA and a grandson of Gabriel BAUBAU, found on a Land Patent in New Kent Cnty., VA, on 25 Oct. 1700. Any information appreciated and I will share information I have on BOBO family in America and France. Charles H. (Chuck) BOBO
