RE: Children of Moses McIlvain, Jr.
So, I am still working through the descendants of Moses, Sr. and working out the conflicts. I enter information with sources into WikiTree and try to get at least two sources for each profile.

I have not found a Find A Grave memorial for either Moses, Sr. or Agnes (Miller) McIlvain, nor any McIlvains in the Octorora Presbyterian Church cemetery, but here is what I have so far for his mother, and his siblings:

Agnes Miller is the daughter of James Miller.

Agnes married Moses McIlvain, son of Robert McIlvain and Isabel (Swann) McIlvain. Their first home was in Chester County, Pennsylvania, Esst Nantmeal Township, called "Manor of Sprinton."

In 1761, the year in which Moses died, he held a warrant from Thomas and Richard Penn for the lands on which they built their home. After his death, Agnes sold the land, so that her sons Moses, Samuel and John could resettle in Calf Pasture Valley, in Augusta County, Virginia, which they did in 1763.

Agnes died in 1764, and is presumably buried in the cemetery at Octorora Presbyterian Church, with her husband and his parents.

Children of Agnes and Moses are:

*Moses McIlvain, Jr. born 1741, married Margaret Hodge

*Robert McIlvain, born 1743

*Isabel McIlvain, born 1745, married James Barclay

*James McIlvain, born 1747

*Jean (Jane?) McIlvain, born 1749, married Paul Trimmer

*Violet McIlvain born 1751, married Samuel Tennis

*Samuel McIlvain, born 1753, married Elizabeth Purdy

*John McIlvain, died 1813, in Kentucky married July 28, 1789, in Augusta County, Virginia to Elizabeth Hodge

RE: James Graham 920
City cemetery listing. Which is probably wrong, large chunks of it are. They have this child and another Graham buried next to each other. One having died in 1990 (this is wrong and is actually 1890 and is one that you manage) and the other in 1920. Both were listed as James and I see that sometime in the past year or two they've changed them both to JAE. They also have both of them listed as being 41 at the time of death. There's nothing to be looked up for the James that died in 1890, if there were newspapers in existence for that time, I'd have all ready pulled an obit. The baby though, should have a death cert at Wyo Archives. Do you want to contact them for it? I'm sure they're getting tired of hearing from just me. There's a form to fill out here:
Be specific and give them as much as you have. I like to give a reason for it as well (conflicting names, looking for maiden, etc.) so that they don't feel that they're looking things up to satisfy idle curiosity. They normally email it back the same day or the next. No charge for it.

You are quite welcome and it was a great joy to give back family to family if you will understand what I mean. Our family is the most important asset we have or will ever have outside of God's love.

Best always,

RE: Robert Hereford
My family descends from Robert's younger brother, Brooke G. Hereford, so we are indeed cousins. It's been a while since I've had that picture--I can't tell you exactly where I found it. I've done a lot of googling of Robert L. Hereford, because he is just so fascinating. I have an idea that it came from a book originally. I've seen others online, in various places such as that have the same picture.
I do recognize your name--are you in the facebook page of Robert Lewis Hereford descendents that Kenny Smith maintains? If not, I suggest you join.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful on this.

RE: Request for Virginia Lewis Hereford Hereford
My dad was of the last generation to live in the old house. I believe that a good bit if not most of the old documents/heritage have been passed down to him. The farm was sold by my grandfather to a power company in the mid 1950s. All the structures are gone. All that is left are random piles of scrap metal and stone/brick and the remnants of the cemetery. My brother and I are meeting our dad there this Sunday afternoon to pick dad's brain about where the house, etc were located and to show him what progress we've made at the cemetery. We would love to find the areas where the house and church stood.

RE: Request for Virginia Lewis Hereford Hereford
I can remember as a young girl a gentleman coming to our house at least once or twice a year to look through dad's old pictures and documents. This man, Historian for Blennerhassett Island Historical State Park in Parkersburg, WV, was also interested in some old furniture that may have had a connection to Blennerhassett. I am sure that he new of the connection to George Washington as well as other significant historical figures in our ancestry. Robert Hereford's house in Apple Grove was one of the first houses built in that area. He also built the first church there on his own farm, which has long since been gone. If we can find all or most of Virginia's stone, I will call the historian and at least ask his advice on what to do with it.

Request for Virginia Lewis Hereford Hereford
The cemetery where Virginia's grave is located is in horrible condition with most of the headstones either severely worn, broken or even buried. My brother and I are in the process of cleaning up the cemetery but it is proving to be quite a challenge. Virginia's stone is one that is fact we have not found all the pieces yet. If and hopefully when we find them, I will try to reconstruct the stone and take a picture. Don't be surprised if this takes some time. Btw...would you mind me asking what your relationship is to these people?
