DEPEW, GRIMES, JONES -
I am looking for information on gr gr gr grandfather Isaac DEPEW, whose father John DEPEW moved with his family from New Jersey in the 1760's to a farm near Fincastle. There were seven sons, Isaac the oldest. Isaac married Jane JONES, with the permission of her mother Elizabeth in 1780 when he was twenty-two. I have no more information on Jane JONES, or the names of all of their ten children, except for two sons, John and James, and a daughter Polly who was my gr gr grandmother. Isaac then moved to Tennessee, Sullivan County, and Jane had already, I believe died at that point, as he married Virginia GRIMES and had seven more children.

VICE -
Seeking anyone who may know the burial spot for my 3-great grandfather, Enoch VICE, who died on November 19, 1827 in Fincastle apparently while on a visit to Virginia. The reason for his visit was unknown and he was indeed a stranger in the area as he was from Bath County, Kentucky. Enoch VICE was born in Virginia but it is not known in what part of Virginia he was born. In the probate court data in Bath County, Kentucky, it states that Enoch's estate paid out bills to the following persons in Fincastle--M. Preston (funeral expenses), Dr. Griffin (apparently medical expenses), Mr. Craft (apparently William Craft, a person who rented rooms in Fincastle). The actual circumstances about his death is not known (something 'lost in history') Will appreciate any information about Enoch VICE anyone can give.

CRAIN -
Seeking information on Jasper CRAIN b. Botetourt County, Virginia c. 1766. His brother Spencer CRAIN b. c. 1770. They may have had a brother Silas CRAIN. Both Jasper and Spencer moved south through North Carolina and Georgia before turning north to finally settle in Franklin and Williamson counties in Illinois. Their many movements and habit carrying the same names for generations makes them hard to follow. Any help? Will be happy to share family information from 1808 on.
