GLASSCOCK, MCDANIEL posted by Gene McDaniels on Tuesday, September 3, 1996

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. Gene McDaniels

BOLLIGER, HICKMAN posted by Patty J. Treacy on Wednesday, November 13, 1996

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.
