TOLIVER, ISOM: Jacob Toliver was born about 1799 in Ashe County, NC. On 27 Dec 1821 he married Susannah Isom (born about 1806 in Virginia to John S and Rebecca (Cole) Isom) in Grayson County, Virginia. They were in Martin Twp, Lawrence County, Indiana by 1833 and had moved to Pixley Twp, Clay County, Illinois by 1842. Jacob was dead by October 1854. Jacob and Susannah’s children were (at least) Sarah, b-1830 Vi; Mahala, b-Jan 1833 In; Darcus, b-1836 In; Wilburn, b-1838 In; John, b-1841 In; Harriet(?), b-1842 Il and George A, b-1843 In(?). Who were Jacob’s parents? Most researchers indicate they were Charles and Susan (Edwards) Toliver. However none have ever shown me any proof of this claim. My research in Lawrence County, Indiana of Charles and Susan Toliver do not prove their relationship. Charles’ will and all the land deeds that followed Susan’s death do not mention Jacob even though he lived adjacent to Charles and Susan and owned some land that once belonged to them. Other researchers (of Mahala Tolivers’ husband) indicate Jacob Tolivers parents were Jesse Toliver and Francis (Franky) Stampler again without proof. Jesse is a brother to Charles. I also would like to know when Susannah (Isom) Toliver died and where she and Jacob are buried. I obviously would like to communicate with any current descendants of these people.

Francis Marion Wilcox aka Alex Wilcox: Can you please help me find out who this person's parents are? He is in the Ashe and Grayson county census starting 1880 through 1910. I know that he died in Ashe county in 1920 and he is buried in the Finley Cemetary. He married Nancy Elizabeth Finley on 11/22/1874 and they had 5 children. Elizabeth, Robert, George, Martha and William. I am told that Alex was not really a Wilcox. His mother was a Pendleton and that he was raised by a Wilcox, but no one knows the Wilcox that raised him. In the 1900 census, Piney Creek Township, he is listed as being born Jan. 1852. Thanks! Ron Wilcox Athens, GA

I am searching for the parents of Amanda DAVIS, b 1833 in Virginia. Later census states parents born in N.C. There was a DAVIS family who owned property in both N.C. and S.C. near Dillon Co., S.C. and Robeson Co., N.C. It was a turpentine farm. A son of the farmer moved a way for several years and then returned. When the father died the son stayed on this farm. Could this have been Amanda's parents. Amanda married James T.

Va., However, all of the children are listed on several census as having been born in Va. My grandfather, John Durin COOMES was b 1862 of James and Amanda.<

Doing research on the McMillan Clan of Ashe and Alleghany Counties NC. The family was originally found in Wilkes County Abt. 1788 or a little later by John McMillan and his Wife Marion (nee McLymont,McLeamont, McLamont, Lamont Lamond, etc.) McMillan. John became the first clerk of the court of Ashe County in 1799 when it was formed from Wilkes County. The family became well established with all of teh children of John and Marion marrying with the families of the Fields, Gambills', Koontz, Colvards, Kilby's and Reeves, just to name a few. If anyone has further info on this and all of the associated families please contact me. You can see what data I have accumilated so far by reviewing my McMillan Family Report currently posted at my user page located on the Family Tree Maker web site. The address is http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/w/e/l/claude-e-wells/ I have several reports posted but two are for the McMillan's. Iam trying to gather as much info on the families as possible to make my tree grow and to create a file that can be used for others who may be trying to get data together for hteri tree. And I figure the more places people have to look and th more places the data is available the least likely this important family info will become lost for our future generations
