John VOTAW or Jacob VOTAW - I have a land deed for John VOTAW placing him in Loudoun Co 1771 - He then sold this land to his Brother Isaac who subsequently sued him? and we then lose track of him until he later goes to KY but in some of the notes he was in Botetourt prior to KY and along the way he also loses his wife Rebecca - I would be pleased to find anything on this ancestor. Thanking you in advance.

I am trying to find information on William Monroe Mayo b. Mar 1846 in either Botetourt or Fluvanna Co. I believe his parents were Joseph Mayo and Nancy Blackburn both from Fluvanna Co. William apparently married Rebecca L. Scott 1/5/1873 in Allegheny Co. and then Hannah A. Leonard on 1/18/1888 in Botetourt Co. I found William and Hannah on the 1900 census for Botetourt Co. (in EagleRock?). Both (?) William and Hannah died in 1904 and most of their 6 children ended up in the orphanage in Roanoke. Also on the 1900 census it showed that Hannah's widowed mother, Ann Leonard, b. Oct 1836, was living with them. I don't know what happened to Rebecca Scott or if they had any children. I don't know what killed William or Hannah. Are there any birth records available going back to 1846? Any additional info at all would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I am seeking information concerning Colonel William Fleming who I believe was the County Lieutenant for Botetourt County at the outbreak of the American Revolution. My ancestor, Micajah Callaway, a resident of Bedford County, enlisted in the militia in Botetourt County along with other young men from Bedford County. Limited information that I found in the Draper Manuscripts indicates Colonel Fleming was an important military figure in southwestern Virginia. One reference indicated he was entrusted with keeping the arsenal of Virginia, which was moved to his safekeeping away from the coast to protect it from the British. Other information indicates he helped organize the early militia companies that were sent to the relief of Boonesborough in 1777. Specific questions are:
1. Where did Colonel Fleming live?
2. Was he a commander of a fort?
3. Where was the arsenal kept?
4. Why did Botetourt County play a larger role in the militia than other counties in the area?
I'd appreciate any information that can be shared. Thank you.

In the Botetourt County Rootsweb, someone had a message and said something about the book "Related Families of Botetourt County". I was wondering how I could get a copy of this or at least see it since my grandfather was Thurston Ashton Barger (and back before 1800 came from Botetourt County) and my grandmother Carrie Willie Kenney Barger were both born in Botetourt County, VA. I hope that you can help me. Thank you,

There is speculation that Margaret WARNER was their mother and was married to Jas DILLON who is listed in the tithtables of 1778 in Rockbridge County VA. Are there any WARNERs or anybody who has any information.
