I live in Stockton, CA. My mom, Olive McVey from Iowa. Going back > William Frederick McVey & Gertrude Rice > John Crafton McVey > John Craft McVey b. 1796 Greenbrier Co VA > Samuel McVey b. 1767 VA > Sgt. John McVey b. 1737 Scotland > James McVey.
I'm a 1st cousin 9R to Joseph Howe & Dorothy Martin. Their child > Abraham Howe & Rachael Rice > Abraham Howe & Lydia Stowe > Lydia Howe & Wm Whittaker, parents of Wm Whitteker b. 1775. Parents of Joseph Howe above, Abraham Howe and Hannah Ward, parents of Hannah Ward, Wm Ward 1603-1687 & Elizabeth my 9th great grand parents.
From the Rachael Rice above, I found the line connects to another set of my grandparents. Rachael Rice > parents, Benjamin Rice & Mary Graves > Deacon Edward Rice & Mary Bent > Deacon Edmond Rice & Thomasine Frost who are my 9th great grandparents.
I have looked in my "Bradfute Beginnings" Bradfute history book and have found Leila and Leila Ann Bradfute. And a story on the Norvell's. Thank you for responding. If you need any research in South Texas, maybe I can help.
I was just looking at your Ky post sweetie. Do you know who this Nevora Porter married and when she died. That might tell us who her parents were etc. Have you looked for on the 1880 census for Ky.
Im in the DAR too. I belong to Kanawha Valley Chapter in Charleston, WV. We are very active too.
