I am searching for two ancestors whom I believed lived in Botetourt County, Virginia in 1845. I am searching for John Littleford who would have been in his late 70s and possibly died in this county and his daughter Emma Cooper who was John's daughter. Emma was married to William M. Cooper on September 30, 1840 either in Albemarle County or Botetourt County, Virginia. I know that Emma was living in Botetourt County, Virginia because I found a letter that she sent - it is in the Library of Virginia under the Colonial record database. The problem is that the letter starts "Dated Pattensburg, Bottetourt(sic) County, Virginia, 16 Aug. 1845" I have tried to find Pattensburg on the map with no luck. Since this is a document that was transcribed at the Library of Virginia I assume that is correct. I would like to narrow down the location because I believe that John Littleford died and buried somewhere in Botetourt County. Also I know that he attended an Episcopal church and if I could determine the area where he lived with Emma and William Cooper then I might find the church that he attended. Whatever help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking to identify the children of John & Elizabeth Crumpecker/ Crumpacker who lived in Botetourt County in the late 1700s & mid 1800s. I understand that John's will is recorded in Botetourt County, sometime around 1840. When Botetourt County split the part of the county that they lived in became Bedford County. Following Elizabeth's death John married Mary (Wagner) Gish in December 1821 in Botetourt County. Mary was the widow of John G. Gish. Would also like any information on her family. Her parents may have been Christopher and Abigal Waggoner. Her father served in Capt. Mills Militia in 1783. Her mother's maiden name may have been Mills so would like any information on this family as well. Her brothers may have been married to Margaret Britz, daughter of Adam Britz in 1808 & to Mary Nofsinger, in 1839; James married Matilda Simpson daughter of John in 1843; John married Mary Powers, daughter Yancy Powers 1816 all in Botetourt County. Chris's daughter Abigal married John Beaubeau in 1802 after her father's death in Botetourt. Elizabeth Ann Waggoner married Samuel Simmons in 1836; Harriet Waggoner married Samuel Crush in 1844; Jane Waggoner, daughter of James, married Jacob Peck in 1815; Nancy Waggoner, daughter of John, married George W.

I am searching for information regarding Joseph Carden, a resident of Botetourt County VA from approximately 1800 to his death in about 1818. Prior to his residency in Botetourt County, he is known to have served in Captain John Gilmore's Company in Rockbridge County. He was listed in the land records of Botetourt County in 1800, 1803, and still listed in 1816 as having 46 acres on Craig's Creek. He married Mary, no further information available about her maiden name, and they had ten children: Isaac, John, Rachel, Mary, Allen D., Robert, Joseph W. (my direct link), Nancy Reed, Elizabeth Wray, and Jane Walker. His will was probated in Monroe County, but I see no listing for that county now. Also mentioned in his will is Daniel Wray, son-in-law, which leads me to believe that some of the female names with second names attached are their married names. I would appreciate any information regarding Joseph Carden that may be available. I have lots of information about the descendants of Joseph Carden as they moved from Virginia to Tennessee and on into Alabama if anyone else is researching this lineage, and will gladly share information.

I am researching the Corder family of Va. Dave Corder, born Va. abt. 1807, moved to Wayne Co. KY. and married Uscilla (Metcalf) Gregory. I have no dates other than the 1807 date for Dave. The family of Corders moved around a lot it seem in Va., so it is hard to pin point what Co. Dave was born in. I have located a Elizabeth Jane Corder in the Va Family Geneologies, but not much on her either. Thank you,

Many years ago my grandfather, Dr. Wm. Harold Boswell wrote in a letter: "My father's folks came originally from Doran's Cove (or Cave?@ Jerry) in Bottertot Co. No Carolina (mistake must be Va @ Jerry)...they originally owned the whole section a county or two by a grant from England." My grandfather's father was Isaac Street Boswell and his father was Samuel Boswell. Can anyone help with the location of Doran's Cove or Cave? Also need help with Samuel's parentage. He was in Overton Co. Tn in 1820 and died 1846 in Jeff. Co. IL. Am interested in any Boswell in Botetourt Co. but especially Samuel, Wm., John, and Andrew. Thanks for your help.
