Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am so sorry that I have not been active for quite some time now. My husband passed away after a courageous battle against a cruel cancer. I will get back to all of you as soon as I am able. Thanks for your patience & understanding.

I started out looking for one of my grandfather's grave & information about his military service. I discovered family on both sides were not listed anywhere. When I found it helped me find some of the cemeteries & some family members. I've made trips to a lot of the cemeteries. Armed with more dates I went to the library archives to find obituaries. I can see that this is going to be a long process but it is fascinating & so easy to get caught up in. I am grateful for this site! It has helped me get started in the right direction.
I am looking for the "Catlett's" (Dan & Isabelle, Harry & Rosie) Gore, Va & Capon Bridge,WV area; "Slonaker's" (George & Catherine, & Isabelle)Capon Bridge, WV & Gore, Va area; "Bowley's" (William & Isabelle), Gore, VA area? "Dunlaps" (Jeremiah & Ida) from the Gore,Va & surrounding West Virginia areas; and for the "Miller's" (Herbert & Bessie, Charles & Virginia (Jennie) ; "Dellinger's" (Ephriam & Minerva, & Bessie) from Wardensville, Hardy County, WV area; as well as the "Breeden's", "Hurts", & "Grave's" from around the Madison County and Frederick County, Va area. I recently found a couple more, quite by accident, but would love to hear from anyone who may know of any of these people.

P.S. Please, when you'd like a grave transferred to you, do so through the findagrave link, so that I can transfer it. I will gladly transfer those that are not my family.

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!

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.
