Culley Family
I am researching my Culley family in Virginia. My 4th great grandfather, Thomas Tupper Culley, born about 1740,  lived in Carteret N.C. and may have been born in Virginia.  I am looking for any records about the Culleys.  A Thomas Culley is listed as being an appraiser in the Isle of Wight, Va.  in the 1670s.  i hope he was an ancestor of Thomas Tupper Culley.

Do you have any records of any Culleys in the 18th Century in Virginia? i understand there is a "Culley Lane" and a Culley cemetery somewhere near Mechlenberg, Va. Csn you help me verify that information?
I thank you very much for any help or guidance you can give me.

NUNNALLY - Nottoway Co., Prince Edward Co.
I am trying to track down my Gr-gr-gr-Granfather. His son was Samuel J. Nunnally  who was born in 1835 and died between 1910 &1920. He is listed in the 1910 U.S. Federal Census as of 23rd April 1910...(as a Lamuel J. Nunnally, believe it or not)...but must have died between 1910-1920. I have no official date of death, but I was hoping to get a copy of his death certificate thinking it may list his Parent's names. He, I believe, died in Crewe Town, Winningham District, Nottoway County, Virginia. His wife's name was Martha Sarah, but apparently preferred Sarah Martha and I believe she is listed as such on her tombstone (I have been told) which is located in a Cemetary located near ? Farmville ?

I am trying to track down the parents of my Gr-gr Grandfather, Samuel J. Nunnally. He may have actually died in Nottoway County as that is where he last lived as per the 1910 U.S. Federal Census, but I am fairly certain he and his wife, Martha Sarah (tombstone may say Sarah Martha 1847-1923) are buried near or in  Farmville, Pr.Edward County. I hope to obtain a death certificate or record for Samuel J.'s death hoping it may list the names of his parents. His father name may have been "Creed T. Nunnally" and he was apparently from the Pr.Edward area
Wm. Nunnally

Archibald and Eleanor settled in Scott Co in the early 1800s. Archibald (died abt 1865) may have been buried in a cemetery located on C.P.

I am researching my Gr-Gr-grandparents John Holland and Mary Rhodes. They came from England to US.  My grandfather John Rhodes Holland and his brother born 2 years later, were the first of the family born in the US, in 1819 and 1821, near the Chesapeake Bay area.  The 1850 census gives names of children born in VA in the early 1820s. They may have been in the Hume area in 1840, and in the Delaplane (Piedmont) area in 1850.  They had a woolen mill in Fauquier County.  Any info appreciated.

"My grandfather, Sterling Lafayette Knight, used to live in Boonsboro, VA (I think). I recall visiting up until the late 1960's.  He had a farm early on somewhere in the area which i visited with my Dad's second wife, Lois (Tomlinson) Knight.  Anyway, my dad was Leroy Knight, his mother was Mabel Knight.  My grandfather later married Eva (Turner?) Knight.  I am trying to find out if the house where my grandfather lived is still standing.  Unfortunately, I don't recall the address, but I remember my dad saying, ''We're almost to Boonsboro (city, road?).  There is also a Knight family cemetery on the hill not far from where the old Knight farm used to be.  There is now a housing complex surrounding it (may even have taken over by now - I was last out there about four years ago)."   Cara (Knight) Duty

The following is information that we currently have, any additional information would be greatly appreciated.
Solomon Poston Sr. was born circa 1748 in Charles Co. Maryland. He is the son of Edward and Mary Poston. Solomon was named in his father's will dated 1790 (probated 1791). In 1794, Solomon Poston sells all the land he inherited from his father and moved to Henry Co, VA where he is listed on the 1800 Henry Co, VA Personal Property Tax List. He is again listed on the 1810 PP Tax List, as well as the 1820 Henry Co, VA Census.  He died in 1824.
What we basically know is that Edward and mary Poston from Charles City Co, MD had at least three sons named in Edward's will in 1790 (probated 1791). Solomon, Bartholomew, and Benjamin Poston. It also names Grandsons: Bartholomew and Edward Poston "sons of my son Solomon". We know that Solomon Poston Sr. went to Henry Co VA. Bartholomew went to Washington D.C. and Benjamin went to North Carolina. Since Solomon Poston Sr. was the only Poston to go to Henry Co, its assumed all Postons from Henry Co descend from him. Looking for more information on his sons.

I have been trying to find the parents of my ancestor Joseph Fisher born 1868 in Virginia, according to age on censuses records.  I found a Joseph Fisher on the 1880 census born 1868 Clover,Virginia I think I read that this is Chesterfield Co, VA  living with an Uncle Burel Fisher. However, I don't know for sure this is him.  I was wondering if there are any records of Slaves that might have this Joseph Fisher's parents or parents showing this Burell Fisher.  I don't know that he was a slave but I can't find his parents at all and am hoping someone may shed some light on this subject.  Joseph Fisher came to Ohio by 1900. He married Elizabeth Portman in Clark county, Ohio or Madison county, Ohio. He is buried in Springfield having died in 1953. Joseph was Black and his wife half Black. Her parents lived in Madison county Ohio. From 1900 till they died they lived in Ohio.

Hi, I’m trying to find the ancestors of my ggg grandparents.   

#1  Julia Hayslet born 1835-36 in VA (I don’t know where).  Her marriage license states her father was present and consents, and there is a signature of EDWARD HAYSLET on the license.  All the census show Julia and her parents born in VA.  SO I’m trying to verify parents of Julia Hayslet born 1835-36 somewhere in VA.  

#2  Charles/Charlie Morris born 1810-1812.  He was a reverend.  Probably can’t do much with no other info.    

 #3  Elizabeth McGuffey/McGuffy born 1750, census show VA, she married Micajah/Micager Gwartney in VA, I think Mecklenburg in 1774.  I’ve not been able to find anything of her of him.  

 #4  Micajah/Micager Gwartney/Gwaltney born abt 1750 Mecklenburg , VA (that is what we show anyway)
