Researching John A. Jones and Martha Humphreys of Fluvanna County. They were married in 1783, marriage registered in the county on December 9, 1785. There were two gentlemen by the name of John Jones in, or around, Fluvanna county at this time. On the personal property records one was know as John Jones - son of David, or sometimes Capt. My ancestor is known as John Jones - powder. Unable to find his birth or death records. Also interested in knowing why he was called powder (gunpowder?). Their son was Solomon Jones. He was born in Fluvanna county, but died in Barbour county, WV on May 4, 1862. Thanks!

Hello I am researching John Middleton, 1830 census Pendleton County (Virginia) West Virginia. I believe one of his son's is my GrGr Grandfather Basil Middleton. I'm looking for information about the Middleton's in Shennandoah County (Greater Valley) Virginia (late 1700s-early 1800s).

Are there any Acker, Aker, Akers, or Hale's in the VA group, or does anyone know of any of these surnames that have done a Y-DNA test, so I can compare my Y-DNA results?

My ancestor, Thomas Attaway, received land in Nancimond, 1690.  Where is the best place to find these early Colonial records?
