Photos ?
Do you have any photos of Susan Richardson Elkins Spears sister Nancy Elkins? She was married three times. Nancy Smith, Nancy Ellis or Nancy Columbus.

Overton Elkins & Nancy Estep
Hi Ian, I have been doing research for about 5 years now. I have just recently found out that Overton & Nancy Elkins are my 3x Great Grandparents. Do you have any more photo's of them, family stories, or any more information about them? Something I'm really looking for is that they had a daughter named Nancy who married a man named ? Smith. No one seems to know who he is or where he came from or what happened to him. Nancy and ? Smith had a son named William Smith (My Great Grandfather) He was born around around 1892. Either Boyd County Kentucky, or Wayne County West Virginia. In the 1910 Census William & Nancy Smith are on a Census together and she is a widow. I'm hoping you could help me, or you might know someone to ask who could help me. Anything would be greatly appreciated. Hope to hear from you soon. you can e mail me at

You have Art Willis listed in Wheatley Family Cemetery at Shively in Logan County, but he is buried in Wheatley Family Cemetery at Hurricane Branch in Boone County, West Virginia. I visited the cemetery this week, and posted a memorial with a picture of his headstone. I think these are the same person. If you will transfer his memorial over to the Boone County Wheatley cemetery where he is buried, I will delete my memorial and put the headstone picture on your memorial. Thanks.

RE: Spears
Thanks for your reply. It's all so tangled up - I'm working hard to untangle it - but I've feel like we've gotten a late start. Most of the elders have passed away. Nice to "meet" you, cousin!

Hi Ian,

I believe we are cousins at least two different ways through the Spears family. I am descended from: Peyton > brothers HP & Thomas Harmon > Burley & Dicie > Lowell > Alvin > Jennifer > me.

I'm writing to ask if you are on, and see if we can share any information.

You've done a lot of great work here! I can be reached at richners gmail com

Thanks! -Liz
