Margaret A "Pownell" Lewis 54692795
Ummm.... I'm doing research on my Great Granddad John Albert Pownell (73508538).

He is Margaret's brother. Their Father is Isaac James Pownell (19019406). I have traced their "movements" into the late 1700's.

Hampshire County was created in 1754 from parts of Frederick and Augusta Counties. It incorporated present day Hardy, Grant, and Mineral Counties in WV.

From my research, John Isaac Pownall moved into Hampshire County between 1733 and 1792 and settled into the Three Churches, WV area.

From what I see, the 1870 and 1880 Census lists John Albert and Margaret in the house of Isaac James "Gore District", Hampshire County, WV. Gore District includes the Hampshire County communities Levels, Points, and Three Churches, WV. Branch Mt. Cemetery is located at Three Churches, WV.

Gore District is a "Tax District" that is still in use by the Hampshire County government. Gore District in Hampshire County (VA) WV should not be confused with the community of Gore, VA that is located in Frederick County, VA.

So, I'm putting in a request to have Margaret's place of birth changed to Hampshire County, WV.

Hello again! I notice that with this memorial there are 2 pictures. I have tried to copy them - but haven't had much success in getting a decently clear picture. Is there any way I could get you to scan copies of each to send to my personal email address? Or I'd be more than happy to pay for the pictures to be copied at a local Wal-Mart or CVS (or some place of that nature) and pay for postage and something for your time. I have one picture of my Great Great Uncle Greely and adding these 2 to my pictures would make me very happy. If you'd like a copy of the picture I have of Greely I'd be happy to share! Thank you!

Eliza Jane Bennett
Would it be possible for you to transfer my G Great grandmother Eliza Jane Bennett #37051357 to me? This would enable me to attach her with her first husband and the rest of her descendants.

Thank you for all the work you have done - it has been a great help to my genealogy.

Greely C Martin
Hello! I am so excited to have found this entry! Greely C Martin was my Great Grandma's brother and in my 20+ years of genealogy he has eluded me at every turn!
Today would have been my Great Grandmother's birthday (Maggie Sue Martin Tingler) and finding him on this day has made my entire year!
Just to fill in some gaps -
Greeley Clinton Martin
b. 5.2.1882 (family bible date) in Clover Hollow, Giles Co., VA
Married 1st to Mollie Lafon (5.26.1880 - 9.22.1925, Simmonsville, Craig Co., VA) on 10.26.1907 in Maywood, Craig Co., VA. They had 2 sons, Thomas Hill Martin 10.22.1909 - 8.22.1910, Craig Co., VA and Arthur Clinton 'Clint' Martin, b. 5.16.1910, Maggie, Craig Co., VA; d. 10-8-1976, Richmond, VA.

Hi, I have recently been taking pics at Branch Mountain Cemetery, and just noticed the headstone and military stone have different birthdays for Curtis. One is May 10 the other is May 20, both are 1920. Just thought I would pass the info along, in case you want to add it.

Hi Anita.
I just joined and am not sure how this works, but am wondering if you knew Barbara Rinker. I went to school with her in Maryland and lost track of her. I and some friends are trying to find out more about her early death and possibly her daughter. Thanks for any information you can pass on.

Ephriam Dellinger
Hi, Are you still looking for information on Ephriam Dellinger son of Abraham Dellinger and Sarah Catherine 'Sager' Dellinger. I found marriage licenses and registers of his 2 marriages. My paternal line comes down through his sister Mahala 'Dellinger'Link. Maybe we could share information. I am on here and Facebook- Denise Dove- Rio, WV. Thank you!

George W Catlett
Hello and good afternoon.....After speaking to a lady about her gg grandfather George W Catlett who was born in Paw Paw WV in 1863....I noticed that after pulling this mans death record it appears that the death date on his stone is wrong. His death record states that he died on May 1 1920 and shows his employment as being a watchman on the mountains. I am certain this is the same George Washington Catlett who died in Martinsburg WV. Just wanted to let you know and if you need the certificate I can forward it to you. Good day!

Miller/Dellinger Reunion
Dear Anita,
Do you know of any family reunions in the Winchester/Shenandoah Co/Hardy Co area in mid to late June? A distant cousin said he's been to several just after school ends, and that some of the Funk and possibly Bean families attend too.

Should you have any info, please Find A Grave msg me.

Always, in Find A Grave brother/sisterhood,
