Bio and Links
Bio Photo My father was born and raised in Rockingham County, Virginia -- as were many generations of his ancestors. My passion to discover his roots has led to digging deeply into old dusty records to bring my ancestors to life and put flesh on their bones. . . . to know more than just names and dates, but to know them and their challenges. I have authored two books of stories, photos and genealogy of my father's family. My family names include Hensley, Maiden, Meadows, Gardner, Smith, Baugher, Eppard, Moyer, Berry, Broyles, Yager, Clore, Cave, Sampson, Keyser and Wyant.

RE: Esther Earle
Thanks for the smile!

Do you want the magazine? I will gladly mail it to you. I put it aside waiting to hear from you. I am cleaning out a closet and it is going in the trash.

Sallie Harris Gardner Maiden
Jan, you have different birth/death dates for Sallie Maiden on her memorial page and also on her information on James Maiden's memorial page. Which one is correct? Thanks for your help. This is my husband's line.

Josiah Francis Meadows

Hello! I'm wondering if we don't have 2 different Francis' here. I have Jeremiah Isaac's father as Josiah Francis Meadows (1738-11/20/1836) He married (1752 Amelia Co Va) Lavinia Moody (3/12/1730-abt 1798) having 4 boys. He then married (1758 Orange Co) Mary Kesiah Bell (11/20/1736-1818) with whom he had 8 boys and 3 girls including Jeremiah I). I also have Jeremiah Issac birthdate as 1762.

I have Josiah Francis Meadows father as Jonas Meador(1698-1768)

Best regards,
Keith Meadows

Francis Meadows
Thank you for that info. While I incorrectly accepted Mary Kesiah Bell, I had both both Josiah Francis and your Francis Sr as her spouse. I am searching the Davis family of WV that married within the Meadows, Tyree, and Collins family multiple times. I have traced the lineage to Susanna Meadows Davis. Is she, to your knowledge, a daughter of Francis and Mary Meadows?

Nellie Meadows
That why I didn't change the name but sent you as a "other" edit. Sorry, I thought I added it was just a possibility. She is extended family, we are looking into direct an esters- Josiah Francis Meadows and Mary Kesiah Bell (4th gggrandparents).

Let me ask if you don't mind- was Benjamin Sr a veteran of War if 1812 ?

Also re Ellen's father, James Meadows' gravesite. He is not listed on "find a grave" yet records for an application for a military headstone (with wrong death yr) show he is buried in "The Old Hansley(sic) Cemetery". Have any idea which of the 4 Hemsley cemeteries in town that be( it may be located miles to the East)?

Edna M. West
Hello Jan,

Can you tell me if you have any other information on Edna M. West? My Edna was born in 1906 Ohio County, Kentucky and lived in the Detroit, Michigan area in 1940. She was married to a Leon West and they had a daughter named Darlene A. West born 1928 in Ohio.
Can't find anything else on this family and would love to find someone who is related to them. Edna M. "Baird" West is my husband's Great Aunt.

Thank You, Linda Baird
