I am searching for information on Aaron McDANIEL who was a veteran
of the War of 1812 and lived in Monongalia Co. I believe he was buried
in the McDanielAEs Cemetery at Stone House and that his remains were moved
to Mary's Chapel Cemetery in 1937 when the Tygart Dam was constructed.
I believe he was the son of David McDANIEL who in 1790 ran the McDaniel's
Ferry on the Tygart River at Cecil Station just south of Grafton. Further
I believe he is the father of Aaron S. MCDANIEL (1791-1866) of Shinnston,
Harrison Co., and the grandfather of Aaron McDANIEL (1822-1910)
who married Satiria GLASSCOCK in Barbour Co in 1845. Confirmation
of any of the above or any additional information would be greatly appreciated.

Faimont, and Howesville, WV. I have discovered that a number of my ancestors

Howesville. Any information anyone may have on the GOCKE's from
the above area's and/or info on St. Joseph's Church in Howesville would
be greatly appreciated. I can be contacted at JDGocke@concentric.net.

I am currently searching for any information on LUZADDERs. The family
owned land in the Grafton area and is listed in census material as far
back as 1790. Another spelling is LUZADER. Aaron LUZADDER was
the first to come to America around 1735 and Moses LUZADDER was
known to be in the Grafton area. My grandfather was Denzil LUZADDER,
and my father is Edward LUZADDER of Morgantown.

I am looking for information on my great-grandfather Fred BOLLIGER,
who was married to Rosa HICKMAN. They had a son who is my grandfather,
Charles Samuel BOLLIGER who was born in Taylor Co., Grafton, W.
Virginia in 1894. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone? Fred BOLLIGER
was born in W. Switzerland, and Rosa HICKMAN was said to be born
in PA. I know they had to be in Taylor Co. in 1894 if their son was born
there. I am trying to trace them back to PA and hopefully to the date he
arrived in America.
