Surnames: BAYS BAYES
Submitter: Anne Bays (inkerbay@aol)
Date: 27 Aug 2000
I am researching the descendants of Peter Bays, 1700 Henrico/Goochland, Virginia. It looks as though one of Peter's great grandsons, Edward Bays, born Russell County, Virginia in December of 1852, relocated to Fayette County sometime between 1860 and 1870. Family rumor has him coming to Fayette County at about the age of 10-12, alone and on horseback. I am trying to determine what events occurred to make this young boy attempt such a trip? Why did he come to Fayette County? We know that two of his older brothers were fighting in the War Between the States. We also think that his Grandmother Ruth Unknown probably died about 1863, and his mother Cynthia and his older brother John T. also disappeared from Russell County at approximately the same time. What were the conditions in Fayette County during the War? Was it relatively quiet, so a young boy might have been sent there to be away from danger? Is it possible that some of Edward's Aunts (Cynthia's married sisters) may have been living there? Did his brother John T. Bays accompany him on the trip and remain there for a number of years? (I have been unable to find him until about 1889, when he returns to Russell County.) There are a large number of Edward Bays descendants in your county as well as several other Bays/Bayes families. Can anyone help me answer these questions? Thanks for any help you can give me!

Eutaw CLENDININ(sp?). Willie COLEMAN m. John MASON. Father of these Coleman's is J.L. COLEMAN b.Campbells Creek WV. Mother is Matilda ARMSTRONG b. Campbells Creek WV.

Surnames: DEAN WITHROW
Submitter: Beth (jbdamoney@aol.com)
Date: 27 Nov 2000
My great great grandfather, Richard MV Withrow married Lucy Dean in Braxton County on 12 November 1862. They were married by Rev. Dr. Ray at Bull Town. This information comes from Richard's Civil War Pension Application. The big mystery comes from the fact that Richard most likely was living in Fayette. I am unsure of which Lucy Dean he married since there are several Lucy Dean's living in Braxton ,Upshur and Fayette Counties. According to a later census, and the pension application Lucy was most likely born circa 1847, which would have made her about 15 at the time of their marriage. Any information of this union, or any info on the identity of my Lucy Dean would be appreciated.
