I am looking for infomation on the children of John J. KERNS b.
1778 d. ca 1849 and his wife Elizabeth TONGHAM or TOOTHMAN (not sure which
it is). They were married about 1800. Jacob supposedly had 17 children.
One was Aaron, one Jacob Staley, one Minerva. Jacob Staley Kerns (d. 1
Jan 1935 while living with his son Thomas A. Kerns) m. Sarah Ellen Shahan.
I would like to find documentation of the children. Jacob was born in Taylor
Co. but was living in Marion Co. at the time of his death. He spent most
of his life in Taylor Co. I have John J. as a son of Michael KERNS b. 1740
Holland m1. Susannah Wetherholt/Wetherhold m2. Barbara Riffle or Riddle.
Michael was a Rev. War soldier and I have been told he did a lot of wonderful
things in the district of Augustus and Monongalia. I would like to find
proof of these children. Could anyone point me in the right direction?
Does anyone know if this might be in the Monongalia Story volumes and if
so which of 9 volumes would be in? Does anyone know of a will, etc. that
would give me these children's names? I would appreciate any help anyone
can give me. Please e-mail me direct.

BARTLETT posted by Kevin
Bartlett on Saturday, August 22, 1998
Looking for information on Hamilton Creed BARTLETT and his family.
Born abt.1866, son of Hamilton Goss BARTLETT and Catherine McKinney
. He married Victoria Yowell on Jan.16, 1890. He had a farm of 61 acres
in Pleasant Creek. Family moved to Clarksburg in early 1900's. Hamilton
disappeared around 1913, whereabouts unknown? Date of Death? Also interested
in his whereabouts of their farm? Was in W.Va. recently, interested in
knowing who lives or lived down Bartletts Run on Lower Pleasant Creek Road.
Referred to by locals as C. Bartlett Hollow Road. In addition, heading
toward Grafton on Rte.119, you come to an intersection and turn left onto
Rte. 250. At the crest of the hill, there is a sign pointing to Bartlett
Road. Was there another Bartlett that might have lived down this road?
There appears to be an old farmhouse still standing. Does anyone know lives
or has lived there? I am also interested in the Upper Pleasant Creek graveyard.
It is on land once part of the Benjamin B. Bartlett farm. Who owned this
land or lived here before ? Last, but not least, if anyone knows any information
on the BARTLETT family from this area, I would appreciate sharing
