CRESS, ROSE posted by joni seehorn trobich on Thursday, March 2, 2000

I am looking for information on the Rose family; in the 1840 census, widow Sarah G. Rose lived down the road from George W. Rose. She had a daughter Sarah G. or C. Rose (b.July 6, 1823), who married Daniel Cress July 6, 1847 in Washington (Co.?), Virginia. I wondered if anyone knew who Sarah's father was, or what Sarahs' mother's family name was, or who her parents were. Thank you in advance for sharing any information you may have with me...

CAMPBELL, FIELDS, LINDER, LOCHRIDGE, SPEARMAN, SULLIVAN posted by Martha Smith on Friday, March 3, 2000

Searching for more info. on possible 3G-g.father J.MAJOR FIELDS(1798-1873)Washington Co,VA. Wife-Sally WILDER (m-9/11/1817). It's possible he had a son also named MAJOR FIELDS (abt. 1814-c.1876). Major(M.F. or M.H. - not sure)FIELDS & his bro. ROBERT LEE FIELDS journeyed to western KY (Hickman Co) abt. 1831. Federal census of 1840 has them married & farming 400 & 200 acres respectively. I'd be happy to share what info. I have on this line as well as accept any suggestions for doing further searches in this county. Not knowing what part of Wash. Co,VA he lived in makes it harder to search for a cemetery or gravesite. More info. on this family line can be sent to me at : pixmom@zdnetmail.com Thanks for any help you'd be able to offer. Martha
