Fayetteville Families

I am brand new to this website and so am a little confused about who is responsible for the group called "Fayetteville Families".  I have researched the Lewis Barge family from Fayetteville for many years, but have never before seen the claim that Lewis Barge's second wife, Christiana, was Christiana "Schaumberger".  Many, many descendants have spent much time trying to determine her maident name, only to hit a dead end.  Even Oliver Weaver, who wrote an excellent book about the Barges,…

M. Richard "Dick" JONES

He was divorced with 2 kids named Diane and Scott. They are surely grown with kids of their own by now.  I did post…
