Hello everyone! Thanks for all of the interesting things you all have been
sending in!! Remember, my records are never

it in so that we can try to figure out (if that
is possible) what is correct.
From: (Dennis N. Rosencrance)
Could you ask if any Wamsley Web members have Rosencrance and Tacy
information, they would like to share with me. As you know our families
were closely related in the Elkins West Virginia area. just a thought

Dick Phares suggested I write you and ask to be put on the list for this
newsletter. I am descended through three daughters of Joseph Wamsley, son of
John of Pendleton. Dick and I share
descendency through 1 of these girls. If any of the back issues contain
or his descendents, could I also have
them? I would be happy to contribute if you would tell me how I could be of
help. Dear Joseph has about drove me mad
in running him down.
Mary Ann Wamsley told me about your group
and suggested that I join. My great-great-
grandmother was Elizabeth Ann Wamsley (b. 1819)
who married Forbes Wright Chipps, 12 Aug 1841
in Lewis County WV. I believe she is the daughter
of Isaac Wamsley and Susannah Yeager.
I would like to join the group to see if I
can learn more about this line of my family.

Well, it seems like we have a dilemma here.
We worked on trying to find the first wife of Dr. Elam Talbott last fall and
decided it must have been Keziah Proudfoot. This would mean that Keziah
died before he married Julia Ann Capito in 1860. Dr. Elam was born 1810
died in 1881. If you have Keziah and
Elam's death dates from their tombstones, then the Elam that married Keziah
Proudfoot may NOT be Dr Elam, but his
nephew, son of Elisha and Millie Stephens Talbott.

I have been searching for my father's (Frank Philip Walmsley; B. Nov 11,

England could have been Wamsley or Walmsley.
My father's parents:
John Henry Walmsley; B. Jan 27, 1861 in Plymouth, New Hamshire.
catherine Ignatious McCann; B. Dec 19, 1856, in Philadelphia.
John Henry Walmsley; B abt 1827 in England.

Ingram? Comfort names some grandchildren in her will but that's it. I've
found very little on this branch. They seem to have had John (b1787),
Thomas, and 2 girls With naming patterns, it seems likely they might have
had a William as well. Since they went to KY (at least she died there),
there is a possiblity of a tie-in.

From: (Jean Loudin)
I am Jean Snyder Loudin that you mention. One, Joseph never had a Daniel.
The Rebecca and Sarah Ann are not proven daughters as far as I know.
Rebecca and Sarah Ann's birth dates fit for two unknown daughters, but both
were gone in 1820 and Sarah Ann did not marry until 1821. Also Joseph Sr.
died between 1840-50 in Randolph Co. Dick Phares and I have spent untold
hours on this man trying to get his family straightened out. I feel there
is some scandal attached as I could get nothing out of my family who
remembered generations back, except that he had a bunch of girls. Yeah,
since 3 of them are my ancestors, that was an understatement.
Willing to help anyone on this line. What various stories do you have on
the birthplace, etc. of Joseph's father? Absolutely nothing has been proven
on his ancestors either. All those Maryland Wamsleys may or may not be
There is an Isacc Wamsley family that established itself in Ohio about the
time that John was in Pendleton and of all things, they have many of the
same traditions, but no one has been able to connect them together. They
certainly sound as if they are.
Enought now, got to get supper and get ready to watch WVU beat Utah in the
Till next time, Wanda
