I am seeking info on the PETRY ( I am not sure of the spelling, could be PETTREY or like that ) family that lived in or around the Vaughn area of 20 Mile Creek. I am looking for one Petry in particular. I don't have a first name but I do know he lived in the Vaughn area around the early 1940's. He had family there and about 1943 was seeing a TRUMAN girl that lived in the area also. Sometime after 1945? he moved to Beckley and had a job as foreman or manager of a coal mine there. If anyone has any info on him or his family, I would greatly appreciate it.

EDWARD (NED) HUGHES I am writing a book on Edward ( Ned) HUGHES b. ca 1767 d. 1839 m. 18 Oct. 1793 Nancy Foster b. 19 Feb. 1774.Lived in Kanawha and Nicholas Co., WV. I have fare records on his ancestors from son Madison to present. Willing to share all! I am attempting to clarify or find his father and grandfather. 1. An unknown source I have lists his father as Thomas Hughes b. 1740 d. 1793 m. Elizabeth (unknown) b. 1744 d. aft. May 1793. This takes me nowhere. 2. Don Norman (Hacker's Ck. Pioneer Desc.) (his site is temp. down) lists Ned as son of Thomas and Susannah Hughes. Thomas' first wife was Mary Baker. Thomas is reported as son of William who died in 1767 in Hampsire Co. VA. Will probated 9 June 1767.Wife believed to be Suda or Sudrah. Thomas moved to Hampsire Co. about 1750. Lived near "Lick Branch". Moved to Harrison Co. about 1755. Settled on Hackers Creek about 1773. Listed children: Sudna Sarah Jesse (famous indian fighter) Thomas Jr. Elias(Ellis) James Martha Charles Deborah Job Edward (my NED) 3. Ruth Cornell says Thomas had 3 wives. Elizabeth _______, Jane (Jean ) Hughes, Nellie Foster Children of Thomas: William (wife Mary foster) Robert Elizabeth (husband Abraham Jarrett) Edward ( my NED) Susanna ( husband James Reynolds) George Hughes (wife Margaret Johnston) Nancy Hughes (husband John Campbell) Thomas Jr. This man's will (22 May, 1793) lists only Thomas, Edward and Robert as sons. Have you been able to follow any of these lines? Would you venture any theories on who Neds parents are? Any aid would be appreciated. . --------------------------------------------------

We are seeking information on the CONTE and NELSON family, which lived in Nicholas County, WV., sometime between the 1910s and the 1920s. Specific individuals we're seeking information on are capitalized. SILVIO BRUNO CONTE, SR. (nicknamed "Sam") was born on the island of Ponza, Italy, on October 23, 1894. His parents were CAMILLO CONTE (b. about 1875 in Italy?) And FRANCIS SCOTTI (b. about 1875 in Italy?). After emigrating to the USA (between 1910-1912), sometime between 1918 and 1920 he became a coal miner, and married BERTHA NELSON (b. between 1893 and 1900 in Ireland). They had four children in the areas of Richwood, Mallory, and Huntington, West Virginia: 1) LUCILLE AMELIA CONTE, b. 1920. 2) HAROLD "Red" CONTE, b. 1921. 3) JOSEPH BENJAMIN CONTE, b. 1923. 4) FRANCES CONTE, b. 1925. Bertha died between 1925 and 1927, perhaps in WV or PA. We do not know her parents' names or where she was born in Ireland. But we are desperate to learn anything we can about her! Sometime in the late 1920s, Silvio Sr. then married his 2nd wife, DULCIE ELIZABETH WALKUP, who was born on March 25, 1907 in Renick (Greenbriar County), WV. Together Silvio and Dulcie had 8 children (perhaps in or around the areas of Richwood, West Virginia and/or Ellsworth, Pennsylvania): 1) MARY GILDA CONTE, b. November 1925. 2) AMELIA CONTE, born in Richwood, WV, perhaps in the late 1920s. 3) AUGUSTINO CONTE. 4) DAVID CONTE. 5) SILVIO CONTE JR. 6) EUGENE CONTE. 7) JAMES CONTE. 8) DANIEL CONTE. In 1943, Silvio Sr. and Dulcie moved to the Detroit, Michigan area, where most of their children, now grown, are still living. On October 10, 1975, Silvio Sr. died in Detroit (of a heart attack). Dulcie died on August 28, 1989, in Warren, Michigan. Dulcie's parents were OSA (or OTIS?) WALKUP (b. January 28, 1874, in Greenbriar County, WV) and UNA RUCKER (b. 1884, in Greenbriar County, WV). If you have any information pertaining to any of the above individuals (even if you're not related), please contact us. We would very much like to complete our family tree and connect with relatives. . --------------------------------------------------

Hi Everyone? I'm looking for the ancestors/decendents of Jacob C. CHAPMAN, Sr. b. 1788 d.1858. The main names on my family tree include HICKS and SKAGGS. There are a few others but these are the main names. I am having some dispute over some of the information that I have found. It could be that Jacob C. CHAPMAN, Sr. is s/o Jacob Chapman b. 1755 m. to Margaret BURNS. Any information you may have on these two families would be great.

My mother was left a small piece of land but I don't know by who, and that piece of land ( about 5 acres) was sold to Walter Perry in 1944.

I am looking for the location of the site of the Old Methodist Camp Ground which was used prior to the Civil War and was on Laurel Creek near the Bethel ME church. This site was purchased in 1842 by the church, and later owned in the 1950's by Walter Gray. After the Civil War, a new site for the ME Camp Ground was located on Laurel Creek near the 1954 residence of John Bennett. This latter site was used up to the 1870s. Does anyone know whether the Bethel Methodist church was a ME church or a ME South church after the Methodists split in 1845? . --------------------------------------------------

Maria LangTue Mar 13 09:53:08 2001
Home page:
Hello, I am trying to find out how my family ended up with the last name of LANG. What I know is: My GGrandfather was Carl Guy LANG(born in 1892/93 in West Virginia). The majority of his immediate decendents were born and/or buried in Nicholas County. Carl Guy's mother was Elizabeth PERKINS. Carl Guy was illigitimate -- with his mother never revealing who his father was. However... Carl Guy was given the surname of LANG (which Elizabeth never used). We have only one possible "family story" lead. Apparently there was a Nelson LANG who owned/ran Weirton Steel. This is the only clue I have as to the possible origin. I can find no other LANG surnames in the area. Other information (just in case it is helpful): Carl Guy married Bessie ARMENTROUT in approximately 1910 (she died in 1937 and is buried in Blacks Chapel Cemetary in Nicholas County) and had Roy Lew LANG. Bessie was the daughter of Lorenzo Jerdan and Virgina Elizabeth ARMENTROUT. After Bessie's death, Carl Guy married Lucy TETER (approximate marriage date 1939). These families lived in the Nicholas County area. Carl Guy LANG died approximately 1976. He died in Stuebenville, OH while living in a nursing home. If you can be of any help, I would be appreciative. Aside from the obvious brick wall (which can never be torn down) -- it is pretty strange to have the last name of some unknown, unrevealed person. Thank you very much. . --------------------------------------------------

Would like to pass on information on Walter's ancestors to them. Researchers have been able to trace his ancestors back to Johann Jacob RUP b. 1663 in present-day Northern Alsace, France.

This Charles Dewitt Callaghan had a child in 1932 by Azalea Woodyard in Gilmer County, WV. They were not married. My wife and child are descended from that child born out of wedlock.

One of the children in the photo is holding a chalk board that says "Rose Run / 1909-1910". This is the only clue to the location. When I ran "Rose Run" through the U.S. Geological Survey search engine a stream in Nicholas County, West Virginia came back as one of the hits. I would be happy to share a scan for you county's site, or with other interested parties (it is still possible that some of the younger folks pictured survive), but I am unsure where the Rose Run school was located. Are you aware of a Rose Run school in Nicholas county during this period or can you direct me to someone who might know? I hope that you will drop me a note at the e-mail noted below if you have any thoughts on this mystery. Thanks, Edward Carter . --------------------------------------------------

My Grandmother Edith Victoria FERRIS (various spellings)was in the area of Muddlety when she was a young girl. Her family apparently owned a boarding house near there. She told me often times when I was young how hard she had to work. Edith's half sister Bell PERINE was born at Hookersville her death certificate states. I know these areas are close together. Anyone out there know of this boarding house or these people? Any help appreciated.
