Your family is my family!
Dear Rodney, how incredible it is to meet other people who are related to the same family, but from so far back, as Captain Christopher Clark!

My family are from Arkansas, even though I didn't know this growing up, since my mother took me away to the British Isles, and I have had a strangle longing to go the United States all my life .. my mother of course, kept silent on much of that.

I emigrated here 12 years ago and have been asking the Lord, 'Why am I here of all places?" and only since found my father was a writer like me (although I am unpublished), we wrote of the same things & through searches, found two sisters I didn't know I had who told me he was from Arkansas (!!!) & only after did I learn I had emigrated to and married, in the very county which my father's family have lived & been buried in, over 200 years!

That's when I started continuing our geneology. You are the first person I have written to, and I just want to say it is a pleasure to say hello to you! God bless you!

Re: James Toone, Immigrant
Hi Rodney,

Thanks for posting the Ark & Dove info & link at the memorial for James T. Toone at

James Toone, Sr. who died circa 1676/77 in North Farnham Parish, Northern Neck, Virginia Colony, in what is now Richmond County, was my 8th g. grandfather.

I believe he came to the Virginia Colony prior to 1651, as evidenced by a headright record for a James Town by John King. Even if that's not him, there's plenty evidence he was in the Northern Neck of Virginia prior to 1660.

I do think some of the older databases are giving some oral family history, none of which show any documentation or evidence of their statements. None of that really matters as much to me as the documented evidence that does show his whereabouts, his life and death.

My Rootsweb database is located at if you should care to take a look.

I also have documentation that he was not the son of Henry Toone & Mary Ward of Leicester, England, all from their records office. Again, I think that was old research without proper documentation.

Thanks for the photos. Although I'm not directly related, the McCoys and the Quick are related to my cousin. I'm always been fascinated with finding Rose as she was my cousins grandmother.

I did visit Calvary and St. Marys recently. I loved the statue. That picture should grace Mary McCoys site.
