My name is Joanne Watson. I was born and raised in Albemarle County, Virginia (Charlottesville), where my mother's family has history that dates back to before the Revolutionary War (Wood, Ward, Sprouse, Norris, Thomas, Maupin). My mother's Wood, Ward, Birckhead ancestors and others came with land grants from Maryland after the Revolutionary War. My father is from Rainelle, Greenbrier County, West Virginia; he and his family relocated to Albemarle County in the 1960s. My father's ancestors made Greenbrier County home just after the Revolutionary War (Smith, Fleshman, Jones, Brown, Osborne/Osburn, Thompson, and other allied families). I also have ancestors from Pocahontas County, Nicholas County and Fayette County WVa.I would love to hear from cousins, no matter how distant, a cousin is a cousin.
