MILES, RUSSELL posted by Amanda Trill on Monday, May 3, 1999

I am trying to find information on my g-g-g grandmother's family. Mary Jane RUSSELL was born on March 4, 1824, in Washington County, Virginia. She married John MILES, who was also born in VA (although I'm not sure where) about 1840. Their first child, William, was born in VA, in 1842. The family then moved to Kentucky, and had two more children, John and Martha. Husband John died while in KY. Mary Jane and (to my knowledge) all of the children moved on to settle in Hardin County, Illinois. If anyone has any information on who Mary Jane RUSSELL's parents or John MILES' parents may be, I'd greatly appreciate it!


BERRY, CAWOOD, CAYWOOD, KEEWOOD, KEYWOOD posted by Mary Cawood Sanders on Tuesday, May 4, 1999

Looking for information on descendants of Stephen Cawood (1724-1810)and his wife Esther Berry Cawood (1729-1828). Also interested in Esther's ancestors. Applications of three of her great grandchildren on the Guion Miller Roll of 1906-7 list her as a Cherokee woman, Easter, Short Easter, the Ideal of her tribe and Easter Keewood. Family tradition is that Esther was the daughter of Cherokee Indian Chief Keyatoy who signed the Treaty of Lochaber on October 18, 1770. If this is true, one wonders where the surname Berry fits in. Another source suggests that she was the daughter of William Berry and his wife Esther of Maryland. The Cawood surname is sometimes spelled Caywood or Keywood. Any input would be most welcome. Mary Lu Cawood Sanders

With the boundary changes, was Washington county VA ever in the same area that would be considered PA?

The one from York county Pa, the Robert who died in Washington county VA who had the house Retirement and my Robert who was the sheriff and later moved to Knox county KY where he died. But I came across a book that was stating that the southern part of PA was once VA and I had never come across that before, does anyone have any ideas on this? Thanks for your help. Sally

CRAIG, REED posted by Sally Lawlor on Thursday, May 27, 1999

I have already posted a couple of queries for information pertaining to my Robert Craig of Spring Creek, But I am also looking for information about his son, David Craig who married a Mary Reed of Tennessee. I suspect that the family was living in the area of Washington county that was later turned into Sullivan county Tenn and that is why this Mary Reed was referred to, from Tennessee. I have no information regarding Mary or her family.Other than, her brother was a prize fighter, I do know that David Craig had a tavern some where on the Wilderness Road, specific area, I dont know.David and wife and family ended up in Knox county Kentucky. I do have one peice of documentation that doesnt make sense, it is a will of Joseph Craig, brother of David that states his brother David from Knox county Tenn. 1808. Was Knox county Tenn at this time frame really that close to the 3 states boundaries? KY,TN,VA?? Really odd that the family ended up in Knox county Kentucky, similiaries are really strange. Any one have a crystal ball they are not using for awhile, I might try it. Thanks for any help Sally
