Francis Marion Steele and Malissa Prater are my great great grandparents. I am looking for any information anyone may have. I have a photo of Malissa and want to verify.
I am a descendant of David Musick . He was my 6th great grandfather.

Hi Judith -
I think Sarah Elizabeth Musick Prather (born about 1760) is actually David Musick's younger sister, not his daughter. To my information, before his death at the hands of the raiding Indians, David had only one daughter with Anna, and her name was Phoebe (I am descended from her).

I believe you may have the wrong cemetery listed for David.
There is a memorial stone for him in the cemetery on land that he owned at the time of his death and it states the following:
David Musick born 1752, killed and scalped by indians in his home Aug 12, 1792 500 yds southeast of here his wife and five children were taken captive but recaptured by pursuing settlers at Haysi, Dickenson County. Abraham, Samuel, Elijah, Elexious, Phoebe.
He is actually buried on what was his farm about a quarter mile from where his house stood on this property.
It is in a family cemetery on Route 80 as you leave Honaker, Va., going up Big A Mountain. It is located in Russell Co., Va.
I grew up about a mile from there. I am also a descendant.
