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?

Will your organization be publishing an Augusta County Death Records book for those death after June 1917 to 1920? I have been looking for my great grandmother's burial place for over 30 years. Just recently, I found her infant son in your publication Augusta County Death Records (ending in June 1917). I am looking for Bessie (Hall) Hall died after 1917 but before 1920. Her husband was Robert. Her mother was Nancy J. Hall Campbell who I am also looking for in the same time period. Thank you for your assistance. Linda Hasting

I’m going to be in Lyndhurst next week visiting my brother and would like to check out your resources. I’m looking for information on the Zachary family who lived in culpepper, orange, Madison and Augusta counties from 1730’s until moving to Kentucky in 1810. I suspect they didn’t move that many times but the counties changed around them. Thank you in advance for your help.

I  am requesting assistance of a branch of my family tree that was from  Augusta County, Virginia.  After many years of dead ends my myself and  my grandfather (who has since passed).  I believe it's time to seek  professional help.  The only information I have on this line are census  records.  I am a member of Ancestry.com, however there isn't much of  this missing link. William McNutt (4X G-grandfather) b. 1820 in Virginia, listed in the  1850 & 1860 census for Augusta County.  No info on death or resting  place.  He married first Margaret (Stover), second Margaret (Stephens)  or (Stevens) No info on death or resting place for either wife's.   William & Margaret (Stephens) McNutt had son, James McNutt (3X  G-grandfather) who moved to Vinton County, Ohio sometime is the 1870's. William's parents are John McNutt b. 1789 in Virginia, listed in the  1850 & 1860 census for Augusta County.  No info on death or resting  place.  Elizabeth (Robinson) McNutt b. 1789 in Virginia or Pennsylvania.   No info on death or resting place.   John is my dead end.  There are some other McNutt's in the area in the  census records, however I can't assume they are related and not sure  how.  I'm really trying to find John's parents.  I can send what info i  have to help in any way.  I look forward in hearing from a pro that can  help.  Thank you for your time.   T. McNutt

Good  afternoon!  I reside in Alberta, Canada.  I am doing research on my  Ervin/Erwin paternal genealogy & have run into a dead end.  I would  appreciate any help or guidance you can offer.  I have traced my 5x  great grandfather, Benjamin Erwin, to Lewisburg, Greenbrier, WV.  I have  a copy of his will dated April 23, 1846.  I believe he was born in  Augusta County (VA) WVA in 1765 to Charles Ervin, wife Catherine, no  maiden name.  He married Margaret Wallace Sept 26, 1793.  His son John  Ervin, born 1801 is my 4x great grandfather who migrated to Iowa in the  mid 1800's.  I cannot locate any actual documentation re Benjamin's  birth or death & nothing on his parents.  I very much want to  confirm his parents if possible.  I believe they were both born in  Pocahantas VA, approx 1740.  Charles's parents likely immigrated from  Ulster, Northern Ireland.  If someone could call me to discuss I would  be very grateful!  Jill Hunter. 403-580-5025.  I would love to visit  this part of VA but in the meantime would be willing to discuss paying  for research.

Hi, I was curious to know if you have a family file on the Lambert surname. I have Lambert ancestors from Augusta County and stopped by there a few years back when I started my genealogy research but sadly can not find my notes from that day. Thank you, Nancy Kabat

I have visited your area for Parry family history. Since my son-in-law has been transferred to other Air Force Base have not had chance to visit again. I had obtained information on the Parrys and in specific Joshua Parry. My great, great grandfather is Caleb Parry and from all documents is buried in Waynesboro but I don't know which cemetery. His son is Littleton Parry and I have recently been given a photo of him and plan to send to you as soon as I an perhaps lighten up the photo. My new adventure is for William Henry Harman, Confederate officer, birth 2/17/1828-3-2-1865. He apparently died in the Battle of Waynesboro. From my research there are 2 original Harman families, Isaac (German and many, many descendants are here in Phelps County) and George who source said came from England. My cousin would like to establish if William Henry Harman is connected to Isaac's line here in Missouri. Harman can be Harman or Harmon. Here's Mo line, Isaac, Soleman, Job, Samuel Sr. Grace Harmon said great grandmother of relative wanting Harmon information. This information is in Crawford County Heritage book and some of the line may be in slight error but who knows. William Henry Harman's father is listed as Lewis Harmon 1794-1840. Thank you and let me know fees etc. I will send my dues soon since I think they have expired. Carolyn Parry Tilford, 573-465-1549
