Do you have information on the Halen Family? Specific person is MARY ELIZABETH HALEN (b. abt. 1754) and her ancestors. She married Henry Harry Hensley abt. 1770. If so, confirm your hours of operation in December? Thanks. Richard Blocker

I am working on our family history and would like to find (if exists) a document that indicates a place of birth for a Margaret Danner. Margaret is the daughter of my Great-great-great Grandfather, James Cummings. I have found a 1850 Census Record that shows she was living with her son, James Danner & family in Augusta, Augusta County, Virginia. A place of birth is noted on this document but is not readable on FamilySearch.com or MyHeritage.com. She passed in 1856 and is buried in Delaware County, Indiana next to her husband, Samuel Danner. They were married in Mason County, Kentucky in 1796. Do you have a death record of her there in Virginia or can you read the place of birth on the 1850 Census record ? Family letters indicate she was born in Virginia. 'Someone' has modified her Find A Grave bio with a birth location of Scotland. However, I have asked and so far no one can confirm with documentation that she was born in Scotland. Her father, James Cummings, is per family letters, to have also been born in Virginia abt. 1750-1755. We have hit a wall with him also because apparently there were no birth records recorded during that time period. We can find no death record for him where he passed in Ohio. Thank you in advance for any information. Regards, Nancy Minter

Good afternoon, I’m interested in paying for someone to help me research my maternal lineage, which I believe goes back to Augusta, Virginia. My 5th great grandfather was Thomas Dove, who married Anna Dorothy. There is a Thomas Dove mentioned in the Chronologicles of the Scots-Irish settlement and I’m hoping to prove or disprove that this is my ancestor. Look forward to talking! My email is Alexandermoore42@yahoo.com.

I have a great grandfather named Andrew Jackson that was born in Staunton, Va. in 1812. Are there any records of Jacksons in the county in your library?
