Am looking for information on Wallace BEARD, b. abt. 1817 in Pence

the HINCHMAN surname on any listing and am hoping that since I finally

his hometown.  They had my great-grandmother Ella Alice MANN. Anyone

In the newest issue of GOLDENSEAL, a part of the Irish Tract in Summers
County shows the surname FOLEY as having land there.  We are looking for
a Patrick James or James Patrick FOLEY who fathered a Robert Lee FOLEY
whose mother is reported to be Liz RODES.  Robert was reared by John L
and Nancy PLYMAN QUICKLE in Braxton County, WV, but they were not his natural parents.  He was born in December, 1863.  Is anyone researching
the FOLEYs in Summers County? Whether or not my names are familiar to
you, I would like to correspond, as we have been researching this family for over 15 years and still cannot get beyond family oral tradition concerning Robert's parents!  Any West Virginia FOLEY information would be most welcome!!
