I'm researching my husband's family from Craig Co., VA. Craig Co. was formed in 1851 from part of Botetourt Co. We know that his grandfather, Byron Osborn Sarver, was born in Craig Co. in 1861. His brother, Henry Benton Sarver, was born 1846 in Craig Co. and served in the 22nd VA Rgt., Co. C. We don't know the names of their parents, but believe they may have been Buchanon Sarver and Phebe Lugar. The dates of their births and marriage, plus the fact that Byron named his daughter Phebe lead us to suspect they are the parents. We also believe Byron and Henry were descended from Casper or John Sarver, residents of Botetourt Co. in the late 1700s. We would appreciate any information that would help us trace this family. Thak you!

I'm looking for information on George and Mary (Shepherd) Foster. George was born about 1802, supposedly in Botetourt County. He married Mary Shepherd in 1825, I've been told also in Botetourt Co. The couple presumably stayed in the area until the early 1830s when they removed to Southern Michigan. I'm attempting to uncover the names of both of George's and Mary's parents. I have the names of Robert and Hannah Foster located in Botetourt at least in 1809 as that was the listed date of the birth of their sone James Henry. Any assistance would be most appreciated.

I am trying to get as much information as I can about William Dempsey born about 1720 in Dublin, Ireland. He came to Boutetourt Co., Va. as a small childand lived most of his life there. He was married 3 times; a Miss Gulliver, a Miss Meadows, and in 1746, Jane DuBartis. They raised a large family. I have never been able to find out who his parents were and why he was sent to America with an uncle. He could have been in the Revolutionary War, but I think he was too old. He had a son, William that served in the war. Maybe he was in the militia.An interesting note --- He is the ancestor of Jack Dempsey the prize fighter Sincerely

I'm looking for information on the Selenberger/ Solenberger/ Sulenberger surname in Botetourt County. I am not sure exactly how the name is spelled so anything similar may be a connection. My ggg grandmother was a Susan Selenberger (or some variation of that name) and I have that she was born in Botetourt Co. 15 Nov 1804. and d 7 Oct. 1870. She married Jacob Neathawk/ Neidhawk III (b Jan 1799 d 22 Feb 1855 Franklin Co VA) 12 Aug 1824, but I don't have a location of the marriage. Jacobs parents were Jacob Neathawk/ Neidhawk Jr (b 1755 PA) m Dianna Golding (b?). Jacob III and Susan had Dianna Neathawk/ Neidhawk (b 13 May 1828 Botetourt Co VA) who married John Wesley Cook (b 12 Dec 1828 Pittsylvania Co VA). I really am interesting in finding information on the Selenberger family particularly Susan and who her parents were. Please e-mail me if you have any information.

I'm grasping at straws. My Joseph Samuel ADAMS showed up for the first time in Botetourt Co., VA in Aug. 1792, when he m. Elizabeth SEAGRAVES, dau. of Samuel & Mary (Rogers) SEAGRAVES. Both families apparently migrated circa 1804 to Warren Co., KY.. A recently-found Bible shows Joseph Samuel ADAMS as born 1762, and that he, his wife and several children died in the short period, May-June 1810 in "Missouri Territory," whatever that may have meant. I have found no other record of him anywhere prior to or after his marriage in 1792. I descend from one of his two survivor sons. Joseph could have come to VA from anywhere, and may show up in records as: Joseph Samuel; Joseph; J; or J.S. Adams. Could my Joseph connect to your lines? Any help would be most appreciated.

I am at a roadblock in my roots. I have traced my 4Great Grandfather, Nicholas Scott to Breckinridge County, Ky. I know he settled in the county in 1800 from Botetourt County, Va. That's where I'm stumped. I can't find anything else on him or his parents. I know he had a brother named Henry who was murdered in Breckinridge County in 1813. I would appreciate your help in any way. Please respond if possible.
