My g-g-grandfather Andrew Caldwell was born in Logan Virginia, now West Viriginia. Sometime between then and 1853 he moved to Boone County, Indiana, and was married there. I have reason to believe that his parents may have been Seth Caldwell II and Nancy Rice. Seth was son or brother to William Caldwell. I'm trying to find some info on Andrew's birth to see if Seth was in fact his father. Also trying to explore beyond that to William and Seth I. Do any of these names mean anything to anyone researching there? How would you suggest I proceed by long distance? Carol Caldwell Indianapolis, IN

I am searching info John R. Hall appeared after Civil War Lawrence Co,Ohio. Married Amanda Everly there 1868 die there 1899. Before Ohio is a mystery, but he served 2nd WV Cav. The 1870 census and his Grandson age 93 state born in Ky "maybe Lawrence Co,Ky". Grandson George says John R. Hall killed a man with rifle in "Ky". Claims i was a "Devil Anse" which can't be Devil Anse Hatfield...but he may(?) have been involved early somehow. George also says his grandpa was not a Hall, changed his name after the killing and came to Ohio. Truth is John came to Ohio BEFORE the actual main Feud. If he did have anything to do with the feuding families he musta been on McCoy side? Real name could be Stilles according to one source. John was born 1839-42. Don't understand his connection from WV-KY but maybe lived bordering counties. Anyone have any ideas? Where was 2nd WV Cav stationed and could he have lived in Ky but been in WV unit??

I am searching for my Grandmother's death certificate. She died at our house in Hensley, WV when I was 7 years old, April 1 1951. I have tried Charleston vital records, McDowell Co, & Wyoming Co and all reply they don't have the record. I'm wondering if Hensley is in Logan Co. The county finder lists it under both McDowell Co and Logan Co. Is there someone on the list who has access to Logan Co vital records? I would appreciate so much knowing if it is there before I lose another $5 requesting it. Her name was Irene Trinville Ward Steel. But the name on her head stone is Trinnia Ward Steel. There was a disagreement about the name that was to be put on the head stone, but since she died at our house, my Mom, Goldie May Bowling Stanley, would have given the information, and being the oldest child, she would have known the correct name, which was Irene Trinville Ward Steel. She was married to Aldie Steel and lived in Long Bottom, McDowell Co, WV. Thanks for any help. christine hayes gabby362@juno.com

Beulah's children were to small to remember very much. She never married, so that makes it much harder to find anything. I have searched the SSDI and she is not listed. I was told as a child that she was a calm and quiet person it would seem so... I know she did exist because I know where she is buried. I would so much enjoy to know a little about her. if anyone knows anything please contact me.. thank you.

My Grandfather, Horatio Seymour Boling, and an older brother, William R Boling, were born in Wayne Co WV in 1868 & 1867, but Edward wasn't. Since it seems logical they might have moved to a neighboring county before Edward was born, does anyone in Logan Co have any information on them? The parents were William A & Nancy J Mullins Boling.
