Boyd J. Christiansen (boyd.christiansen@slc.k12.ut.us), Mon Jul 19 13:43:47 EDT 1999

I am looking for information about John Samuel RUSSELL, married to Mary SCHRIEVES. Their dates of birth are unknown to me, but their son, Samuel Tilton RUSSELL, was born 25 Jan 1879 in Parksley, Accomack, VA. Samuel Tilton RUSSELL is my Great Grandfather through his oldest child, Bertie Elinor RUSSELL Ward, my grandmother.I am wondering if Mary RUSSELL, daughter of John T. RUSSELL of Hunting Creek, married 16 March 1892 to William A. BARNES, son of John BARNES of Hunting Creek, could be part of the RUSSELL family I am searching. A 1952 news article I came across in my grandmother's, Bertie E. RUSSELL WARD, things. It listed many of Mary RUSSELL and William A. BARNES' children living at that time, 1952, in Parskley, VA. The article also mentioned a Lillie RUSSELL married to Tony MIDDLETON, as having shared a double wedding ceremony with Mary and William. If there are any answers out there, please contact me. Sincerely, Boyd J. Christiansen. I reside in the Salt Lake City, UT, area.

Elizabeth Kellum (JEKellum59@aol.com), Sun May 23 17:21:07 EDT 1999

KELLAM/KELLUM

I am looking for the parents of Riley Kellum, my 3rd great-grandfather.

Riley Kellum was born circa 1795 in NC, and served in a NC Regiment during the War of 1812. He married China Segraves on May 20, 1816, in Wake County, NC. His son Smith Kellum was born circa 1817 in NC. Riley was given land in Alabama for his service in the War of 1812, and he and his family moved to Bibb County, AL in the 1820s. Riley moved to Mississippi after 1840, where he lived until his death in the 1860s. Smith Kellum, now an adult, remained in Alabama. After Riley's death, China retuned to Alabama, where she lived until her death.

Given that Riley Kellum named his son Smith Kellum, I believe that he is connected to one of the Smith Kellums living in Accomack or Northampton County, VA during the 18th century. I believe that there is a strong possibility that Riley is related to Smith Kellum [b. circa 1739, VA], son of Moses Kellum [b. circa 1718, VA; d. 1773, Northampton County, VA]. Whitelaw's history of Virginia's Eastern Shore indicates that Smith Kellum inherited from his father Moses Kellum in 1773. According to Whitelaw, Smith and his wife Mary later moved to North Carolina. During the 1790s, a Smith Kellum was mentioned in several deeds in NC.

Moses Kellum's will was probated in Northampton County, VA on December 14, 1773. Moses is identified as a planter of Hungars Parish. He left half his land to his son Smith Kellum, and the other half to his daughter Luraner (?). If his son and daughter died without issue, Moses left his remaining estate to his brother Benjamin Kellum and his brother Solomon Kellum's children.

I am interested in corresponding with others who are researching the Kellum family, and in exchanging information. I look forward to hearing from you.

I have Bradford, Johnson, Tignor, Miles, Hope and many more lines in Accomack- all on my mother's side. The # 1 question I have is who were the parents of William S. Hope??? He was born in 1814 in Acc. and died in 1894 in Pocomoke. He married Margaret Jane Miles. He was my gggrandfather. He was not the Wm. S. who was born later and may have been the nephew of my Wm. S. My cousins and I have been looking for the parents of our Wm.S.- could they have been George Hope and Nancy Taylor who married in 1811? Does anyone out there know for sure? And I would be happy to hear from any Hope cousins from any of the lines. Thanks, Carole

Anyway, in the Bruton Parish church in colonial Williamsburg, there is a Thomas Lyttleton Savage buried with his wife. On his tombstone it says his father was named Thomas Lyttleton Savage and his mother was named Margaret Teackle. I was just wondering how she's related to the Teackles of Princess Anne (Teackle mansion). I'm very interested in my family history, and I have been since I was 13.

State Library archivists indicates Severn was popular name on Eastern Shore. Earliest census record is 1850 and 1860 in Porstmouth, but 1870 shows Martha a widow. No mortality record for death, although Norfolk Co. records missing for 1860-1863. Severn probably born 1816-1820. Census says parents born in Virginia. Does anyone have records of Whiteheads in Northampton and Accomac Co.? I live in Scottsdale, Arizona, and records here are not plentiful. Thank you.

My great-aunt's maiden name was Eleanora Satchell, she had one brother whose name was Jessie Satchell and her mothers maiden name was Mary Russell. Who later married a Satchell, then a Brown upon his death and relocated to Portsmouth, VA. She told me that her grandmother worked as a cook in a jail located on the eastern shore. I am estimating the time period to have been in the early 1900's. Her grandmother's name was possibly Rebecca Russell. My question is was there a jail located on the eastern shore? and where could I find any information concerning those who were employed there.

I have a group photo taken somewhere on the Shore in, I would think, the end of the 1800's judging from the clothing worn. I believe it might be in front of a church. There's a small frame one-story building with about 20 adults standing and a couple dozen children seated, in front. In the foreground is a young man who appears to be a minister kneeling down. I have tried to get information on this group but no luck so far, so I am hoping maybe there are GHOTES that might recognize it from my description. Not much to go on but I am stilll hoping! Our relatives were from both Accomack and Northampton counties on the Shore - Bulls and Downings. Any suggestions? Many thanks mary

I have a very old antique family bible that has been passed down to me and it doesn't appear to have a date when it was published. I received it from my father who is 90 years old and he received it many years ago as a gift from a very elderly lady for whom he had done chores. This had apparently been in her family for many years before she passed it on to my father. I am trying to determine approx. when this bible was printed and it's value. Any info on the John E. Potter & Company publishers would be greatly appreciated. Such as the year of their inception and are they still publishers today or if not, when did they close down, etc. Anything at all would be most appreciated. I live in London, Ontario Canada.

Mary Holland Cape (mcape@kansascity.com), Thu Jan 21 18:46:07 EST 1999

I am just starting my research into my father's side of the family. I do have information on my grandmother's side with regard to family names of Fitchett, Polk, Dixon, Nottingham, Wilson and Bradford. I am trying to get more information on the Holland side-apparently my great grandparents were from the Eastern Shore of Maryland before settling in Nassawadox in late 1800's or so. Their names are Barton D. Holland and Martha Mills. I would appreciate any help on this any any further insight on my grandmother's side. Thanks!


MARYANNE SWONTEK (MSWONTEK@PROSVC.UMARYLAND.EDU), Wed Jan 20 14:26:56 EST 1999

I'm looking for my great-grandfather, Jackson Hall. He was from Hallwood, VA in Accomack,VA I know he was born Sept. 1872. I want to know who his parents were. I know he married a Larra(?) Carey(?) and they moved to Crisfield and had several children. Their daughter Vesta was my grandmother. I would appreciate any information. Thank You


ARTHUR K. SMITH (ASmith8811@aol.com), Wed Jan 20 00:39:19 EST 1999

My name is Arthur Smith (Eugene, Madison, Daniel, Ezekiel Francis, Ezekiel, Capt.Aaron Smith). Capt Aaron was married to Elizabeth Carraway. She was the daughter of John Carraway IV and Margaret Keeling of Princess Anne Co., Va. I am trying to find the parents of Capt. Aaron Smith. I have information that indicates that his parents may be Tully Robinson Smith and Francis Unknown of Accomack County. Tully Robinson Smith is the son of George Smith Jr. and grandson of Dr. George Smith and Elizabeth Robinson. His mother was West Robinson daughter of Col. Tully Robinson and Sarah West. Francis (the wife of Tully Robinson Smith) had a William Keeling and his wife as witness to her will and William Keeling as executor. This suggests that she may have been a Keeling. My problem is that the only children that I have found for Tully Robinson and Francis are Elizabeth Smith, Francis Smith, and Susannah Smith, no Aaron Smith. Do any of you old Ghotes have any information on the descendants of Tully Robinson Smith or on any Smith who could be the parent of Capt. Aaron Smith? One source claims that Capt Aaron Smith had a number of brothers and that all of them had biblical names. Looks like Tully Robinson Smith may have had all girls and no Aaron. If so forget the Tully Robinson Smith line. It has also been claimed that Capt. Aaron Smith is the son of a John Smith and a Francis Keeling. If this be so then could he be the John Smith who was a witness to the will of John Wise on September 20, 1741, (Nottingham wills and abstracts of Accomack County page 124)? I am interested in any Smith line that may be connected to the Carraway or Keeling families of Princess Anne County. Take up the challenge and try to find a John Smith or a Tully Smith who could be the parent of Capt. Aaron Smith born about 1720.

I have a Crockett geneology website at http://members.tripod.com/~clemmie/index.html Even though I have only found information back to my great grandfather, Earl Smythe Crockett b. 1985 Alexandria, VA, I am convinced he can be traced back to Tangier Island. I have met a few Tangier Crocketts and they are twins to people in my family. Since I cannot find anything linking my great-grandfather, I thought I's try working from Tangier to him. I have several questions based on this: 1. Was Joseph Crockett the first Crockett on Tangier? 2.) If his grandfather was named John TYLER where did the CROCKETT name come from and what was his father Sampsons surname? 3. Is there a genealogy of Joseph Crockett that I can view? 4. Does anyone know when the first Crocketts appeared in Virginia? 5. Where there Crocketts in any of the first settlements of Virginia?

I heard as a child that he was adopted but have learned that his adoptive father was his biological father (Edward C. Bailey). There were three boys born to this woman by three different men. One half brother was Wm Sidney Finley. George Bailey's adoptive mother was Sarah Elliott White Bailey daughter of George Elliott. I do not find my grandfather in the census records, birth records or land records. I do find him in the Portsmouth City Directory in 1932. If there is anyone who could help me find my grandfather's mother I would appreciate it. Thanks, Ann

Anita Wills (alani2@worldnet.attt.net), Fri Nov 27 20:20:23 EST 1998

PINN FAMILY- My ancestors were the Pinn's of Northumberland and Lancaster County Virginia. They were Native Americans and lived along Indian Creek in Lancaster County about 1733. I believe some of my ancestors including Robert Pinn I [1710-1760)may be buried along Indian Creek in Lancaster County. He belonged to Wicomico Parish Church in Northumberland which means he was Christian and they may also have records. The Pinn's now live all over Virginia and Maryland but most trace their ancestry to Northumberland County.

I would like to trade information with anyone researching the Pinn family of Northumberland and Lancaster County. Please contact me if you have any information regarding my ancestors.

They had children Mary, Peggy, Tamar, Jacob, Thomas (from whom I descend - his wife was Scarburgh Godwin), Richard, Severn and Southy. Because of child named Southy perhaps she was a descendent of Nathaniel Littleton and Ann Southey. Jacob's father was Richard Nottingham mar. to Mary Clarke - sometimes called Bundick, her mothers name by 2nd marriage. I would like to trace her too. This would be in 1600's. Genealogy is fun, isn't it?

We have established a time line back from Lillian Savage Jones, owner from 1936 to 1963. Her father Isacc Henry Savage had this property from 1894 to 1936. We are not sure if the house was already built when he became owner. Our goal is to find the year this house was built, and to learn about the lives of the people who lived here. We have been searching for pictures of this house and property. We found a picture at this web site, (in the photo album of the Savage family), we think this picture is or front porch. Does any one know for sure? We would be very greatful for any info. you might have. If we have any info. ourselves that could help in your research we would happy to share. Thank you


Edward Groth (groted@consumer.org), Wed Nov 4 18:36:29 EST 1998

My maternal grandmother (in the 1920s) traced her descent back to two GHOTES ancestors: William Henry Custis and Elzabeth Savage (Willett) Custis

I am now picking up the trail. We know this about these two Custis ancestors: William Henry was born in about 1776, Elizabeth in about 1780. They were married in Northampton County in 1804. Elizabeth was the widow of Douglass Willett. They emigrated (with four children) to Ohio in 1811. The intervening generations of our family (through my mother) were born in Ohio. And, William Henry Custis had an older brother, Robinson (sometimes called Robertson) Custis, who married a sister of Elizabeth Savage, Mary (Polly) Savage. These two brothers and they wives (two sisters) all emigrated to Ohio.

What we don't know is anything about the ancestors prior to William Henry and Elizabeth. We have names--Abel Savage and Elizabeth Dunton Savage were Elizabeth Savage Custis's parents; John Henry Custis and Elizabeth Downing, we think, were William Henry's parents. But we have not to date been able to trace back beyond that to the earlier Custis, Savage, Downing and Dunton ancestors. I have learned that there are a lot of branches of these family trees between 1600 and 1800 in Virginia, and I'm trying to find the ones that connect.

Can you help?

Thank you very much!

Pat Corbitt Johns (PACJ1945@aol.com), Mon Oct 5 13:04:11 EDT 1998

My ancestors were from the Isle of Wight and Southampton Counties, at least the ones I can find were. Also there is a John Corbitt that has me baffled. According to records in Isle of Wight Co., the earliest record of a Corbitt is of John Corbitt who came as a headright of Thomas Powell around 1680. It seems that Thomas Powell had a son Nathaniel who married Lucretia. He also had a brother Nathaniel who was among the most prominent of the early settlers. He and his wife were killed in the massacre of 1622. On 21 Jun 1626 Thomas Powell(brother of Nathaniel) came to America to claim his brothers properties. Thomas Powell also had a son named Nathaniel. In Thomas' will dated 12 July 1683, probated 9 Feb 1687/8,he named his daughter-in-law Lucretia Powell Corbitt. This daughter-in-law mentioned in his will, was the widow of his son Nathaniel, whose inventory was presented in Isle of Wight court 10 Mar 1678. Upon oath of Lucretia the relict of Nathaniel Powell deed, and now wife of John Corbitt...

QUESTION: If this the same John Corbitt listed in Isle of Wight in 1680? There were several deed transactions associated with a John Corbitt. In 1745 he purchased 100 acres of land in Newport Parish, Isle of Wight Co. He sold this land in 1747 to Samuel Corbitt. QUESTION? The John Corbitt m to Lucretia, did they have children? The John Corbitt who purchased the land in 1745, was he the son of the first John? John sold that same land to Samuel Corbitt in 1747, was Samuel John's son?

As you can see, I have several mysteries. I can trace our descendants to Samuel Corbitt,Sr. who died in 1789 but have been unable to make a connection with this John Corbitt.

Would appreciate any info concerning this mystery of the Corbitts.

Thank you Pat Corbitt Johns

Lynda Williams (andyjw@goodnet.com), Thu Sep 17 15:11:11 EDT 1998

Looking for any information on Elizabeth BIBBINS and Thomas J. JENKINS I pretty sure Elizabeth was born and raised in Sanford, VA upper Accomack County on the bay side. This is what her obituary stated. I found them both buried in Downing Cemetary at Oak Hall. Elizabeth went by Lizzie and was born in 1879 Thomas was born in 1869, not sure if he was born in Accomack county or not, feelings are very strong that he was. I did find them in the 1920 census in Colonial Beach VA and it stated that he was a Captain of a vessel. Have looked through a lot of census records but rarely find the BIBBINS name. Did find one in 1870 but they already had an 11 year daughter named Elizabeth. Any one out there recognize the names? Could use all the help I can get. Thank you. And good hunting to all.
