SUSANNAH JOHNSON KIRKPATRICK - Born About 1810 - Died By 1836

Susannah Johnson born about 1810 married Jacob Kirkpatrick-had 4 children and she died by 1836 when Jacob married Amelia Lemasters.  Susannah probably had brother Oliver Perry Johnson born 1814. Who were Susannah's parents and when did she die and where is she buried? Susannah and Jacob lived in then Tyler county.   Any help at all appreciated.

I would appreciate any information on Reese Lewis' time spent in Tyler County. I have a copy of his estate sale in 1834. Also I'm looking for his proof of marriage to Ann Thomas Lewis. They lived and raised their family in Rockingham County,VA. His wifes father was John Thomas. Thanks Glenna Lewis Edwards

 My third great-grandfather, James Martin, born about 1810, died between 1846 and early 1847, in Sistersville.  He had been married to Malissa Ann Atkinson (Atchison), who was pregnant with one of their children, Nancy Martin, at the time of James' death.
 I know nothing about James Martin or Malissa Atkinson's parents.  Am trying to connect him to Ebenezer Martin and others in that line.  Also, I'd like to find a gravesite for James Martin.   I believe the Oakwood Cemetery may be where he's buried.
 Malissa remarried to Asa Travis in Steubenville, Ohio.  She is buried in Union Cemetery, Steubenville.  Any help with James Martin or Malissa would be greatly appreciated.

and am looking for any relatives or history of his family. My mother Alice Virginia (Spencer) Jordan often said she knew that she had relatives in WV but had no idea how to get ahold of them. She passed away a few years ago and recently I have started trying to find our family information on my granddads side. I would so appreciate any assistance you could give me.
