Need info on my grandmother Elizabeth WEBB who married Harry Olen DAVIS in 1915 and lived for many years in Simpson, Taylor County West Virginia. My aunts told me she came from England as a little girl and made her way to WVa via Canada somewhere around 1903 with brothers Bert, Alf and Jim. Elizabeth WEBB was born in 1896 and died in 1967. Several years before her death she married Harry McKay from Washington PA. I have been told her parents names were Thomas and Elizabeth (Morgan) WEBB . I can find no information on the WEBB family coming to West Virginia. Anything would be greatly appreciated.

COTTRELL, SIMON, SIMONS posted by Bill Ashley on Friday, November 17, 2000

Searching for information about Barbara SIMONS (abt1849-1895). I have bits and pieces for leads. #1My grandmother Ida COTTRELL told me this information. Her parents were James COTTRELL and Barbara SIMONS . Barbara died when she was 6 years old (1895). Barbara's parents were William and Susie SIMONS , and supposedly lived Roane, Clay, Ritchie Counties and general area. Cannot make any connections. #2R ecieved this information from B. King . COTTRILL , Barbara 46y 10/5/1895 Parents: Lair and Angeline B -n/g Informant: Rachel Simms(sister in law), Info from "Reported Deaths on Roane County-1856-1900" Barbara is also in "Roane County Marriages-1856-1919", W.Cochran as this SIMONS , Barbary 27 Barbour;Roane COTTRELL , James 22 Roane. I assume that Barbour may have been her birth place. #3 Lair SIMONS Co D 14 Regiment WV Inf Volunteers 1864 Ritchie Co. GENWEB #4 Lair SIMONS AGE 60 Joe Hooker GAR Ritchie Co. GENWEB date of muster in Joe Hooker GAR August 14 1886. Bottom line is I am trying to find Barbara SIMONS parents or which one of my info's is correct or neither of them. Any Help Certainly Appreciated.Thanks! I just found the 1850 Barbour Co. Census. There is a Barbara listed in the household of John SIMON and it shows a Lair SIMONS there also. I am so elated to find a Barbara SIMONS born but still not sure what is going on. Just looking at census it is possible that John was her father, but it is possible that Lair was married even though he is listed as 16 and that would have made him 14 when Barbara was born. So I hope she is my Barbara SIMONS and hope you can help. Bill Ashley
LOISEAU, MEYER, WILLIAMS posted by Cara Showers on Friday, November 17, 2000

I just obtained a death certificate from the Wood Co. Courthouse and the place of birth was listed as "Federman, WV". Has anyone ever heard of this town? What county is it in? I did a search on the "Town Locater" on WVGenWeb and nothing came up. I think this individual is from Taylor Co. I'll post this one also on the Wood Co. Query Board.
