Trying to fill in gaps/missing info on great grandparents born, married and raised 15 children in Fincastle, VA. My maiden name is Sandra Rogers and my grandfather was one of the 15. Jerry ROGERS and wife Mary (no last name) had Elizabeth Rogers (NEAL might have been her married name) and William ROGERS (b 1849 - d 1929). William married Charlotte MARSHALL (b 1853 - d 1951) in 1872 in Fincastle. Charlotte's parents were Jackson MARSHALL and Eliza (no last name). Charlotte's siblings were Bettie Elizabeth, George, Sally, Billy, Aron, Demaris and Mary. I don't have dates for any of them. Parents of William and Charlotte were listed on their marriage license at the Court House in Fincastle. William and Charlotte were my great grandparents; I have info on their 15 children, but need to fill in missing info: dates for birth, death, marriages, etc. All replies are welcome. Thank you in advance.

Seeking information on Conrad and Keziah Bolton. Keziah, widow of Conrad, died in Craig County, Virginia August 31, 1864, age 95. Did she appear on 1860 or previous census? Was she the same Keziah Walker who married Conrad Bolton in Botetourt County, Virginia on December 25, 1807? Was this Conrad Bolton the brother or nephew of Henry Bolton of Botetourt and later Giles County Virginia? Looking for anyone descended from Henry or Conrad Bolton.

Researching the family of Leah REYNOLDS (born 1814 Botetourt Co.) and sister, Elizabeth Reynolds (b. 1812 there) who married FORT brothers (Bartholomew & Francis). They were daughters of Morris REYNOLDS and Leah SCHULL/ SHULL/ SCHOLL. I hope to connect with other descendants and compare notes. Would like confirmation that Morris' father was Silas Reynolds. Thanks!

I am researching Francis Eason of Botetourt Co., VA. According to the Annals of Southwest VA, Francis had an original survey 25 May 1774. Between 1780-1784 he furnished bacon to Botetourt Militia ordered to join LaFayette. In his will recorded in Botetourt 1786 he mentions his wife (unnamed) his son Samuel (my line), son Joseph (underage) to share estate and they should divide with sisters Nancy and Elizabeth in captivity "should they ever come in". Would like to find name of wife, story of captivity of sisters and what happened to son Joseph. Is anyone researching this family? Would appreciate any information or correspondence. Will share information. Thank you.

I am looking for Samuel Dulaney who may have been born about 1750. In 1770 he sold his land and moved to Floyd County. He lived in a place in Botetourt called Little Levels. His land was adjacent to the Poag family, either Robert or John Poag. He married a woman named Mary. Samuel died in Floyd County in 1812. Any information on Samuel would be appreciated.
