QUESTION REGARDING TRACT NUMBERS I have a copy of a deed dated March 1, 1779. According to the deed, Michael Alt, my ancestor, owned tract number 31 and tract number 43. Both of the above mentioned two tracts of land were located on the west side of the South Branch of the Potomac River. The tracts were also located very near what is called the South Branch Manor. Both of the tracts were located in what was Hampshire County, Virginia but is now Grant County, West Virginia and Hardy County West Virginia. I recently purchased a copy of a book entitled, PIONEERS OF OLD FREDERICK COUNTY, VIRGINIA by Cecil O+Dell. On a map that came with the book (and on page 553 and 554), it indicates that tract number 31 and tract number 43 were NOT owned by Michael Alt and were NOT located near the South Branch of the Potomac. Why do the tract numbers mentioned in the book appear to be unrelated to the tract numbers mentioned in a 1779 deed? Do you know where I can obtain information (or a book) related to tract numbers regarding land located on the west side of the South Branch of the Potomac River (in the year 1779)? Primary surnames that I am researching are Buzzard, Alt and Ault. Thanks in advance, Monte Buzzard <mbuzzard@fix.net>

QUESTION REGARDING "SOUTH BRANCH MANOR" The South Branch Manor is mentioned in the ALT TO WELTON DEED. I just found it listed on an old map and it was located in what is now Hardy County and Grant County. It was once (1779) located in Hampshire County before the development of Hardy, Grant and Counties. Let me know if you know anything about the South Branch Manor.

Subject: Cooper, George

This is my first message on here. I hope it is going thru. I'm trying to find info on my 4 G Grandfather, George Cooper. I have reason to believe that my George Cooper's first name was Hans when he came to this country. He lived at Pleasant Dale, or & Sandy Ridge. His son, John, lived there also. John;'s son, Jacob, lived on Cold Stream. These are my ancestors & I have alot of info on all but George. I think he came to this country as a 5 year old with his parents & their name was originally Kuefer.

George Cooper bought 129 acres, called Plumb Tree Bottom, in 1799 & 80 acres joing it, on North side of Sandy Ridge, in 1802. His home was by the waters of Tear Coat Creek. He died here in 1809. His wife was supposed to be Mary Rutman. However, I just yesterday realized that she could have been Mrs Mary Rutman. In George's will he listed his sons as Cooper & also listed a son, Jacob Rutman. He very well could have been Mary's son by a previous marriage. George named him as co-adminster, but did not leave him anything.

Their son, John Cooper, bought 50 acres on North River in 1802. He died 9-6-1848, in Hampshire Co. John's wife was Mary Rinehart.

Their son, Jacob, died 3-7-1875, on Cold Stream. His wife was Anna Park.

Could you possibly shed any light on this? Would really appreciate any help. Thank you kindly,

Darrell George Cooper

Surnames: SMITH , KELLY / KELLEY and GRANT

I am researching the family of PETER SMITH. Peter died Feb. 10th, year u/k possibly 1849. Peters wife was a SARAH. Sarah died March 18,1844.

There are two " known" children to this union, a PETER SMITH JUN. ( Jr.) that died Jan.11th 1853 and a ROSANNA SMITH that was born in Va. in "1814", 1813 or 1812. Rosanna Smith married a THOMAS KELLY/ KELLEY in 1842. ( Thomas was born in Dec. of 1812 in Co. Kilkenny, Ireland.) I do have the Kelly line from Thomas and Rosanna on down. Thomas And Rosanna lived and died in Bloomery, Hampshire Co. W.Va.

An old Bible that was found lists my SMITHS and KELLY'S but Many GRANT'S are listed also!!! We have no idea who these GRANT'S are.

Anyone that might have ANY info. on the SMITH , KELLY/ KELLEY and or GRANT family, Please let me know.

Am seeking information on HIRAM W. WILSON. He was born about 1825. He married Catherine Elsey(Elsy or Elzy)(b.1814) on June 10, 1846 by Rev. Benjamin Stickley(United Brethren). His children were Ann V.(b.1847), Samuel (b.1849), Henry E.(b.1851), Jacob Edmond (b.1853- d.2/10/1855),Isaac (b.1856), John W. (b.1859) Catherine had sister Margaret Elsy (b.1812)living with them in 1860 and sister Dorothy (Elsy) Ray living next door along with her mother Cecilia Elsy. I believe Hiram was the son of William and Barbary Wilson. Hiram owned property in Hardy (now Grant) Co. He is listed in the 1850 and 1860 census but then disappears. The rest of the family moved to Coshocton Co., Ohio in 1849. Later still, 2 brothers Adam C. and Charles W. Wilson moved to Marion Co., Iowa. Hiram does not show in either place. Any idea where these people went would be appreciated.

From: R. TRACY HUNTER My gggf's name was David Sites Hunter. He was born in Rockingham Co., Va. in 1812. On a marriage certificate he lists his parents as Isaac Hunter and Sarah Sites. From this point on the trail gets really cold. I can't find anything about Isaac Hunter in the area of Harrisonburg (Rockingham Co.) except that there's a marriage of Isaac Hunter to Elizabeth Kyger (Kiger) in October of 1812. My gggf was born in June. Did Sarah die in childbirth? If so, he sure remarried fast enough.

I've tried to approach this from the Sites side and the only Sites that I can find that would be old enough to have a twenty (approx) year old daughter in June of 1812 would be George Sites of Rockingham Co., but I can't find any info on his children.

There are Sites from WVA. Maybe Isaac and Sarah settled in WVA counties around Rockingham.

Subj: HART

I am looking for the ancestors of a Jacob HART born October 7, 1820 in Hampshire County Virginia. He later moved to Mount Pleasant, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania (1850 census) and then Monongalia County around 1860.

He was enlisted in the 3rd (West) Virginia Cavalry (aka. 1st Virginia Mounted Vols.) during the Civil War. According to his pension records he was married three times first to Mary DAVIS, second to Margaret Ann NICHOLSON, and third Minnie L. SMITH. The 1850 census has him listed as living with Phebe (?) and the 1890 Supplementary census of Fayette County, Pennsylvania lists Phebe as his widow. According to his daughter Sarah Elizabeth HART death certificate his wife's last name was SHEPPPARD. Jacob HART resided in Monongalia County, West Virginia until his death June 24, 1911. This obviously does not correspond to his second wife's account in the supplementary census of 1890. Jacob had four children of which I can account four two by Phebe SHEPPARD (Sarah Elizabeth HART, b. 10 Nov., 1845, Pa.; Ellen, b. 1849, Pa.); one by Margaret Ann NICHOLSON (Albert HART, b. 8 April, 1862) and one by Minnie L. SMITH (Charles Benjamin HART, b. 29 Nov., 1828).
