Hi! I'm doing research on John and Margaret Beard Kyle. They were in your area in the early 1800's. John was a farmer and a schoolteacher. Both J and M lived to their 90's, and I have not yet found their definite death dates (1850's-1860's) or their wills or their obituaries. I have reason to believe J and M are buried in the Greenbrier, Nicholas, or Monroe Counties areas. I have visited with Ted Kyle Summersville, in the past; and I have been to Lewisberg searching for clues. J and M had 7 children, among them Charles, my ancestor, who married Catharine Vance. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Marcia Kyle Rinehart, Leawood, Kansas

Seeking any information on Robert Lee FOLEY. He was my great-grandfather. Born about 1863, died in Richwood around 1911, and is buried in the Odd Fellows part of Richwood Cemetary, according to my grandmother. I need proof of parentage, as he was raised by John L. QUICKEL and Nancy Elizabeth PLYMAN QUICKEL at least from 1870 on. I believe he rec'd a pauper's funeral, and is buried in an unmarked grave head to toe with Cleo TINGLER, a little girl who died in 1909, I think. A wooden marker was long since been washed away. No death rec. exists that I know of. Robert FOLEY married Mary Elizabeth WINES, dau of George and Martha ROSE WINES. If anyone who is a QUICKEL, PLYMAN(PLYMALE), WINES descendant knows of this FOLEY family, who lived in Braxton and Nicholas Co. all of their lives would please contact me, I'd be forever grateful. . --------------------------------------------------
