I am looking for someone who can look for info on a Martin Mooney who joined the Rev. War in Albemarle County about 1775. He was in Capt. William Fontaines Regiment and Col Charles Lewis 4th Va Reg.

NANTZ/NANCE, WILLINGHAM/WINNINGHAM.  Lunenburg County, VA.  Narcissa D. Claybrook (nee Nantz/Nance) listed in Tavener Nance will.  Does not say if she is a daughter of his or not.  Narcissa married WPD Claybrook in 1827 in Kentucky. She was my 3rd gt. grandmother, and I would like to be able to say that she was the daughter of Tavener and Mary Willingham Nance, but it's hard to find written proof.  Mary Willingham was the daughter of Gerald and Mary Johnson Willingham.  Have been working on this for so long.  Now I need to find some help with it.  Thanks.

I am looking for any information on the Scarberry family who were originially from Virginia but migrated to Kentucky and West Virginia.  Also looking for any information on the Altice Family.

Update on my research of my Hale line.

A before unknown cousin was located who is the great granddaughter of Henry Hale a brother to John Hale, my great grandfather. She stated that her mother (Mary Quinn) always told her and her brother they were not really Hale. They were AKERS. Her mother told them an Aker was adopted either by Henry Hale or his father John Hale, my great great grandfather.

Would any one know of any Acker/Aker/Akers that was taken in by a Hale family? Thanks for any help.

Ray, For fairly recent death records in VA try:

http://www.vdh.state.va.us/vital_records/

For earlier records, try the State Library or local court houses/historical societies. 

Comment by Mary E. Lohmeyer on March 30, 2012 at 10:04pm

I currently live in Richmond, VA and upon occasion get to the State Library and to various sites around the state. Most all of my various ancestors originally came from or through VA.

Need any info anyone can give me on how to find adoptions or hiring of children from one family to another, such  as Aker, Akers, Acre, Acres to a Hale family between 1800-1820. Probably in one of these Virginia counties: Grayson, Washington, or Wythe. The adoptions or hiring could be across county lines.

 

My name is John Hale, my gg grandfather – John Hale could have been born in one of these Virginia counties: Grayson, Wyhte, or Washington. His oldest son, Wlliam stated in a document that John was born about 1808 near Avington, VA. I could not find Avington, but I did find Abingdon, Washington County, VA, but no proof of John’s birth there. My gg grandfather is shown in the 1850 census for Perry County, KY and the 1860 census for Mogoffin County, KY, both of these census show John with his wife Sarah “Sally” Fawbush and children.

 

I had a yDNA test performed at Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) and the only Hale I match at the Hale DNA Project is a know Hale cousin. FTDNA notified me of another match with a person with the surname Aker. I didn’t understand this at first, then I discovered that my known cousin also matched this person with the Aker surname. This make me think that my gg grandfather is not a Hale, but an Aker who was adopted by a Hale family or hired by a Hale family and changed his name.

 

Thanks for any help.
