4. Rodham Kenner Cralle married Catherine ____________ abt 1777 in Northumbrland County? [1]
Dear List, I am looking for a record for a marriage of Rodham Kenner Cralle to a Catherine _________ in VA. This would be Kenner's first marriage. His second was to Ann "Nancy" Dodd. The Cralles are from Northumberland but the marriage could have occurred anywhere frpm Northumberland to Lunenburg Counties. Although I do think it was probably Northumberland or an adjacent County. I believe that this marriage produced my ancestor into Kentucky, Kenner Cralle b abt 1778. Does anyone have a re

In writing of Northern Neck Virginia in colonial days, glh writes: New counties were formed as the population in the outlying areas grew. In those days travel was by horse and very slow compared to transportation today. Comment: In one of his lectures on Virginia, Lloyd D. Bockstruck, well-known genealogist/lecturer/librarian says that transportation was mostly by water. << Comment: I have to respectfully disagree with Lloyd D. Bockstruck on this.. I can assure you that one could travel much faster b

Dear Diane, You wrote: (By the way--what a well-constructed query. It was a delight to read.) I'm looking for information about Jesse Bailes - I found the following in the book, "Virginia/West Virginia Genealogical Data from Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty Land Warrant Records, Vol. 1", by Patrick G. Wardell: "Bayles, Jesse, entered service from 1776 - age 16, Winchester, Virginia; Pension 1818 Bracken Co., KY to Brown Co. Ohio, 1821; died 4/27/1830; married 4/1787 Jane daughter of Mos
7. [VA-NORTH] Old time Transportation: [1]
Many times the hollows where people lived were so narrow there was no where to build a road except in the creeks at places. You might ask why people picked such places to build their cabins? One of the big reasons was water, because most of the springs were near the streams and it was much better to live near a spring in a hollow than on top of a hill! Another thing about traveling in creeks was that wagons and buggies required that the wheels be soaked in water about once a month to keep the iron rim

10. Re: [VA-NORTH] Transportation in Colonial Virginia] [1]
It is true that some early pioneers traveled westward by boat, some people even built crude rafts and floated down river, which was very dangerous on mountain streams because many times they encountered water falls and were overturned. One such case occurred on the North Fork of the Holston River in present Washington co., Va.., a family was floating down river and were overturned at a water fall, their young daughter drowned and they had to carry her up on a high ridge to bury her.. Almost a hundred

12. [VA-NORTH] [Fwd: Re: Transportation in Colonial Virginia] [1]
So basically what you all are saying is that people's trails and settlements FOLLOWED the water COURSES, but travelers did not necessarily use boats ON the water as a means of transportation.

14. [VA-NORTH] Transportation in Parts of the South [1]
Thanks again to G. Hearl for information about how people and goods were transported in Virginia. I don't recall whether it was in the Caswell Co., NC estate papers, prior to the 1800s, of my ancestor or other papers, but he wrote that he owed ___ [slave name probably as there is no surname, and he had no son by that name] so much money for taking tobacco by wagon to Petersburg [VA]. The slave must have been trusted because he also purchased clothing for the slaves. I will have to review thos
15. Re: [VA-NORTH] Transportation in Colonial Virginia [1]
The water reference is somewhat relevant, although I guess it varies as to where and why. In West Virginia, many of the people referred to (and still do) the nearest creek to identify their place of residence. Some of my people lived at the head of 14-Mile Creek, some lived on 12-Pole Creek, some on Hart's Creek, and so on.

17. Re: [VA-NORTH] Transportation in Colonial Virginia [1]
Hi Folks, fits a warning, this reply will clarify nothing in so far as the formation of new counties is concerned. A distant cousin, one has to go up and down a collateral line or two to get to him, kept a store in the wilds of TN. The store as built in the late 1800s faced the creek as there were no roads at that time. Thus the folks wishing to shop walked the creek, or rode their horses as the case may be, to get to their local super mart. After the County pushed through a road
18. [VA-NORTH] LeHew, LaHue, LeHugh, LeHeup, etc. Allen [1]
Hi, I was wondering if anyone here had either any information or is a distant cousin? From what I understand, the general consensus is that Nicholas LeHugh was Peter's father, but we don't really know his wife's name, other than Mary (speculation has it as maybe Owen, other say she was the 'wife' at the time of the will) - or if there were other kids, etc. thank you for your time 2 Peter Lehew 1704 - 1780 Frances Allen 1692  Julie in CA --------------------------------- Want to start you

20. RE: [VA-NORTH] Thacker [1]
Hi Patience: I am curious as to where you "local" Thacker family lives. I also saw your same message posted today on the New River message board. By chance, I have the following in my line: David Thacker b. abt. 1805, Washington County VA (my brickwall) (his son) Archibald Thacker b. 9/30/1848, Hawkins County, TN (his grandson) William H. Thacker b. 12/13/1899, (probably) Hawkins County, TN The reason I ask is that the similarity in names is eerie. David was b. in Washington County, but his wife, Ma
