COMMENTS: Seeking info on a David HARTSOCK. We have a copy of an 1876 Caldwell's Atlas which lists David and his son Solomon as residents and farmers in Dallas, WVA for 1876. David was married to a Susan COOK.. They also may have lived in Washington Cty. PA as David's father Henry HARTSOCK owned a farm in E. Bethlehem Twp until his death in 1812 when the farm was left to his children. Any info on David or his son Solomon or any of his other children would be appreciated. David would have been 79 years old in 1876 which is when I found him listed in the Atlas.

COMMENTS: James Murphy Ohio Co 1830/Marshall Co 1840 I have found a James Murphy, , 40-50, living next to sister Mary Murphy Briggs and her husband Isaac in the 1840 Marshall Co, WV census. Unfortunately the information I have is that James died in 1829, but the coincidence of another James of the correct age living next door is most strange. James Murphy is also listed in the 1830 Ohio Co, WV census as are b-i-l Isaac Briggs and sister Mary . Unfortunately this census is listed alphabetically so I have no idea of the proximity of the two families. Is anyone researching the Murphy and Briggs family who would like to compare notes and information?

COMMENTS: I'm looking for ancestry information on Thomas Edward DOWLER, born 21 April 1839, in Marshall County, (West) Virginia. He married his first wife, Catharine JOHNSTON, in Buffalo Village, Washington County, Pennsylvania, 08 January 1868. He was enlisted 23 September 1862, at Camp Willy by Capt. Work. At that time his post office was West Middletown, Washington County, PA. After serving he moved with his wife to Cooper County, Missouri, where Catharine died, leaving him with 2 children, Fannie Buchanan DOWLER and George Washington DOWLER. He married twice more in Missouri, his second wife, Mary Elizabeth WALTERMIRE nee FRUCHEY bearing a daughter, my grandmother, Sadie Eunice DOWLER. Later he married Susie A. EVANS nee WENSLEY. Second and third marriages followed the deaths of the former wives. I know T.E. DOWLER's parents were Joseph "J." DOWLER, born in Virginia, and Hannah FRAZER. I have found their family listed in the U.S. Census records of 1860, in Pennsylvania, Washington County, Hopewell Township, P.O. West Middletown, Call No. 1192, Page 100, Dwelling No. 778, Family No. 735. Here, Joseph (age 50) and Hannah (age 47) are listed as being born in Virginia and Pennsylvania, respectively. Their children are listed as George W. (23), Thomas E. (21, my g-grandfather), Rachel (19), Mary J. (15), Amanda (14), and Sarah E. (11). Joseph, George and Thomas are listed as farmers. I am very interested in this family and the DOWLER and FRAZER lines on back. DOWLERs seem to be all around in Marshall County, (W)V, and Washington County, PA. I would like information on complete family groups, if possible, and tracing back on male and female lines.

Searching WELLMAN-ARCHER lines. G-G-grandfather RUDOLPH WELLMAN, b 1 Nov 1758, Somerset Twp, Washington Co PA, m. AGNES ARCHER in 1789, she b. 1760. RUDOLPH was a PA Ranger, he survived the infamous expedition to Upper Sandusky OH. Last found in PA in 1784, then he and AGNES apparently moved to VA (Ohio Co)on or before their first son JAMES WELLMAN was born in 1790. They next moved to Belmont Co, OH where they are both buried. Son JAMES m. SARAH PALMER in Belmont Co OH in 1815 and returned to settle in Marshall Co W.Va. His sister, MARY WELLMAN, b 15 Aug 1796, m. JAMES STEWART in Belmont Co Oh in 1821 and they then moved to Marshall Co. After RUDOLPH died in 1836, deed records (1837 show that his youngest child, SAMUEL,b. 1802, was named his executor, and that JAMES, MARY and their spouses signed over their share of the family farm in Belmont Co to SAMUEL. The third son of R & A was my great grandfather, MOSES,b. 14 SEP 1798. He married ANN MARQUIS in Belmont Co in 1822, and subsequently moved to Logan Co OH, where my branch of the family remained until about 1916. On a brief stop in Wheeling last week I learned that there are several WELLMAN families in the Moundsville Area; I would most appreciate hearing from any and all who might be related.

I am interested in getting as much information on anyone from the STEENROD families of Ohio and Marshall Counties, WV and Belmont, Monroe, Muskingum, Athens counties, OH. The first STEENROD to come to the Ohio Valley appears to have been Cornelius born about 1743 in NY, married Mary Elizabeth CALDWELL and then Amy ?. Cornelius had a son Daniel by his second wife Amy and probably sons Cornelius and Briggs by his first wife Mary Elizabeth CALDWELL. He died in Ohio County, VA in 1796. My ggggrandmother Mary STEENROD was born in VA or OH November 24, 1824. She died in Marshall County, WV August 31, 1892. She married Jackson SIMS. Who were her parents? What was her exact birth state? According to the 1880 census her father was born in NY and her mother in VA. The History of the Northern Panhandle mentions a Lewis STEENROD who practiced law in early Marshall County, VA. Who was he, where did he live? I have found a Lewis STEENROD in Muskingum County, OH censuses but not in Marshall or Ohio County, VA. An Ephraim STEENROD was listed in the 1840 Marshall County, VA census living near Jackson SIMS. Who was he and what became of him? He disappears from (W)VA censuses after that year.

WALKER and BRAND families- I am looking for information on John WALKER (1828-1903) and his mother Sarah Raleigh (or Rowley) WALKER (1806-1882) who came the the US (probably the Wheeling, WV area) in about 1843 from Wolverhampton, Staffordshire, England. Family oral tradition says they came to join Sarah's husband, possibly also named John, and brothers of either the husband, or the son. John (1828-1903) married Mary Ellen BRAND (1837-1932) in Wheeling in 1857, and John, Sarah, and Mary Ellen moved to Belmont Co., OH by the 1860 Census. In that Census, Mary Ellen is listed as being from VA (possibly Wheeling, as it was still in VA then). John enlisted in the 1st WV Light Artillery, Company D?, unlike most Belmont Co. residents who enlisted in Ohio regiments. I suspect he enlisted to fight beside relatives or friends from the Wheeling area. I would appreciate any information on the WALKERS or the BRANDS.
