Can someone tell me exactly where Castlewood was in relation to Mendota in Washington Co., VA ? After I recently read the FLEENOR book on Chief (Bob) BENGE, it was mentioned several times. My wife and I BOTH have ancestors in the Mendota area of the North Fork. Mine were HOBBS and hers was GOBBLE. According to the BENGE book, the Livingstons lived near the HOBBS family on the North Fork. Been to that area twice. Truly God's country. Larry

MCCRABB posted by Phil McCrabb on Saturday, April 22, 2000

Two sources show McCrabbs (3; John, Joseph and William) in Washington, Co., VA between 1806 (Personal Property Tax List)and 1810 (Census). Other sources indicate a John McCrabb who migrated from Tennesee (possibly Sullivan, CO?) to DeWitt Co., Texas. John is said to have been born in Ireland. I am looking for any additional information on this family. Are they brothers, father and two sons?


BARKER, WALLACE posted by Jackie Russell on Sunday, April 23, 2000

need info from Washington Co Virginia, date range 1850's- on. Henry A Barker, his wife Everilla Wallace/ Barker I have mentions of "Familys of Washington Co, pg 80 . Also George Washington Barker, "Familys of Washington Co. pg 78 and 1850 Washington County census, pg 180



I am descended from Adam Starnes and his wife Susanna (Meeks) whose deed of land in 1795 is in the Washington Co VA deed book one part 2 page 419, also I'm descended from Adam Starnes and his wife Hannah whose deed is on page 412. They are related to John Starnes of Green Co TN, oldest son and heir to Leonard Starnes, according to the deed on page 514. I'm also descended from Conrad Carlock who may be the Carlock who deeded land to Starnes on page 364. This Carlock is a misspelling of the German name Gehrlach aka Gerlach of Pennsylvania, where the German Stahring immigrants intermarried with Conrad Gehrlach's daughter before coming to VA. Adam Stahring Americanized his name to Starnes when he became a naturalized American citizen. Much of my info I found in a book called "Of them that left a name behind: a history of the Starnes family in America", but the Gehrlach to Carlock connection I made myself. Does anyone have information on Carlock of Washington Co VA? Please see my website for Starnes ancestry information. I'm descended from Adam Starnes' daughter Susannah who married my ancestor John Thornsborough against the wishes of his Quaker family and church and moved to Kentucky, where the descendants are called Thornsberry. I'm also descended from Washington Countians by the name of Tuttle, specifically Nancy Tuttle of the 1860 Smyth Co VA census born 1794. The same census has another Nancy Tuttle age 23 as the wife of Josiah McCloud age 24. Looking for more information on these Tuttles. Can anyone tell me the Tuttle heads of households on the 1820 Washington Co VA census (page 236) and 1830 census (page 291)?
