Kisner in Hampshire/Hardy Co, WV
Another Find A Grave member suggested I contact you as she states you are quite familiar with the area. Below is the msg I sent her that she responded to:

I am trying to solve KISNER family riddle and looking at possible allied families. Per this book re: Brethern in The Cacapon Settlement [excerpt p. 65] "The will of Barbara Cheshire, probated on Oct. 19, 1820 reveals additional relationships. It names eight children: 1) Uriah....7) Sarah Kisner....." probably in Hampshire Co, (W)Va.

I would like to know if you have any info on this Sarah (Cheshire) Kisner and her family & ancestors?

I know there was Jacob & wife Hannah (__) Kisner in the area, as they also are mentioned in this extract (additionally, I have other documents regards this Jacob Kisner). In 1850 census, Jacob appears to be a widower and enumerated with him is an Ashford Kisner b. c. 1828 who is the real focus of my research.

Hoping you can help. You may contact me directly at Thank you!

Mary Ruckman Poland
I am related to Mary Ruckman Poland, Richard Henry Poland's second wife. Apparently, they had at least one child, Elisha Poland, born 1886(?). Whatever happened to Elisha, and also, any information about Mary Ruckman Poland's death?
Thanks so much for all of your contributions to Find-A-Grave!

Do you have any info on Amos Poland's wife, Louisa Rogers? She was the dau. of Aaron Rogers and Cheressa Peters of Hampshire Co. She was mentioned in Aaron Rogers' will as Lewiza Polin.

Mary Ruckman Poland
Believe date of birth would be 1838 and not 1938?

Poland Family Hampshire WV
Hello and thank you for your hard work on Find A Grave. We are researching the Poland family in the general area of North River, Hampshire, WV. We are especially interested in information regarding two sisters, Martha b. abt. 1802 and Elizabeth b. abt. 1805 who were daughters of Samuel Poland b. abt. 1780. The two Poland sisters married two Jones brothers (Jeptha and William T) abt. 1820-1830 and moved to Marion/Monongalia WV and eventually to Iowa and their father is believed to have moved to Ohio or beyond. What we hope to discover via find-a-grave are other members of the Poland family that would likely be siblings or cousins to our two Poland sisters and are buried in Hampshire area. We have discovered some possibilities - such as Peter Poland b. 1806 d. 1862, but we can make no positive connection. Our research is a work in progress and subject to change as we find more information but at this point the above is pretty strongly accurate. Thank you.

grandmother poland
Found your name doing research on my 2nd grandmother Mary Weimer (Wimer). I am looking for info on her grandson Jeremiah's wife Nancy Shockey. looking for her birth info (supposed to be Feb. 1897) but can't find anything else. Her father is (i'm told) Sebastian Shockey, but I can't find anything about him either. He must have died just before the 1900 census, since my grandmother is shown as living with a family named Shrout in the 1900 census, since there is no mention of him.
Can you be of assistance.
many thanks
