I have a Benjamin REDMOND, b. ca 1785 in Loudoun Co., VA, who
moved to Mason Co. ca 1814 with his wife, Nancy JAMES. He owned
a saddlery shop in Point Pleasant and a farm a few miles away.
He and his wife had 2 children before her death ca 1820, Andrew
James (A.J.) REDMOND and Mary Ann REDMOND. A.J. REDMOND married
Ala AMOS. They had 2 children, Nancy and Benjamin. Sometime after
her death (bef 1849) A.J. died ca 1849 en route to California.
He had left his children in the care of his father, Benjamin REDMOND.
Mary Ann REDMOND married Lemuel H. JAMES ca 1834 in Mason Co.
They had the following children: Mary (Mollie) (m. Clay NEAL),
Elizabeth, Virginia (Jenny), Alva (m. Miss HILL), Hector (or Hiter?),
Andrew Frank (b. ca 1850; m. Mary Alice HARRIS), and Benjamin
(m. Miss SKINNER). All these children were born in Point Pleasant
except the youngest, Ben, who may have been born in Wood Co. Mary
Ann REDMOND's husband, Lemuel H. JAMES, disappeared in 1854 on
a westward journey, and Mary Ann was killed by a slave later that
same year. The younger children were taken in by Tillinghast "Old
Till" COOK of Wood or Mason Co. Tillinghast COOK was a son
of Joseph COOK, Sr. and Elizabeth BARKER. His sister Nancy COOK,
who died in 1849 in Wood Co., had been married to a John JAMES.
Not sure if this John JAMES was a relative of Lemuel H. JAMES
or of Mary Ann REDMOND's mother, Nancy JAMES. I have some info
on the REDMOND family and a little on the family of Nancy JAMES,
but only have Lemuel H. JAMES' father (Abel or Able). Would like
to know more about all of them, and to connect John JAMES with
the family of Nancy JAMES of Loudoun Co., VA or the family of
Lemuel H. JAMES. Happy to share info.

article, Lewis S. says that his gf. was named George and a veteran
of 1812 War. I have information that indicates that Albert stayed
in Mason county and married Mary J. ? who was born in 1853 in
Mason Co. They had eight children that I am aware of. Margaret
married ? DODD, of Mason Co., b. 1836; They had two children that
I am aware of.

Researching early Mason county pioneers who were residents when
the county was formed from Kanawha in 1804. Surnames are STEWART,
STUART, SMITH, McGUIRE, RICKARD (RICHART), GIBBS, VAN METER, LEMASTERS,
RICE and VAN SICKLE. Would like to hear from anyone researching
these families at this time frame. Thank You!
