am looking for any information on my gr-gr-grandmother Mary [aka Lina]E.
CHISHOLM (bSep 1865, MD) who married Thomas E. SHILLINGBURG,(bApr1860,
WV) married 11 Jul 1883. Mary's parents were Alexander Chisholm,b1840,
married to Nancy Emma Biggs (b1844, Ryans Glade, MD) on 18 Nov1862. According
to family stories, Mary is part Indian, and her mother Nancy Emma Biggs
was likely full-blooded Indian, possibly Shawnee or Cherokee. I would like
very much to confirm our family story of Indianblood. Of course, I will
be happy to share any information I have. Mary's brothers and sisters were:
Melroy, b.1863, Alexander M, b1864, Augustus, b1867, Elizabeth, b1869,

am searching the EVANS Family that settled at Greenland Gapcirca 1800,
although this area was then in Hardy County. First settler was Benjamin
Evans who married Priscilla Bosley. They had a son Abraham and perhaps
a son Jacob and a son Edward (Ned), although not evidence as to Jacob and
Ned and this is the information I seek. 1850 census for Hardy County lists
Benjamin's birth stateas PA. Who were his parents and where in Pa was he
born. I have much information on the Evans from Edward (Ned) to present
and will gladly share. Also have information on Kessels who married frequently
with the Evans. It was said all settled at Orr's Mountain. Where is that?
