KENNEDY - PARSONS

I am searching for information about my great grandmother, Mitta Kennedy, who was married to Alexander Parsons.  I am trying to figure out her family and who they are.  I believe they were Mulatto and might have been “Chestnut Ridge” people. I am also looking for Alexander as well.  Any help would be most appreciated.
  Thank you, Lillian

CAMPBELL

My husband was adopted and born at St.Joseph hospital in Buckhannon, WV. From DNA on Ancestry it appears he is from Philippi, West Virginia. He was born 29 January 1955 and may have had the last name of Campbell. If anyone has any information it would be appreciated.

MARTIN - PAUGH

My 4th great grandfather is Jonas Martin (1806-1861). He and his wife, Mariah Paugh, were from Lewis County, West Virginia (modern day Upshur County). I believe Jonas to be descended from Joel Martin (1750-1781) through their son Stephen. I was wondering if there was any way you could help me to pinpoint whether this is the case.  Jonas died before Stephen and his brother Joel, so it is possible he would not be in their wills if he is a relation.  If you have any idea on this, I would appreciate any help I can get.
Best, Stephanie Norfolk

Point Pleasant School

I am attempting to obtain a picture or a copy for my boyfriend of the old Point Pleasant school building located in Barbour County WV.  It is located along Point Pleasant Road between Belington and Phillippi. I have recently viewed the school which has partially collapsed but part is still standing. 
Thank you, Robin Ritter
