I am researching the family of William LUCADO and his wife Elizabeth (KIDD?). William was born ca. 1795 in Franklin Co. possibly, and married Elizabeth ca. 1815. The family migrated to Montgomery County where they are found on the 1850 Census, after this the family moved to Giles County. William later left the state and settled in Gallia Co., Ohio where he died in 1880.
In addition to William, I am particularly interested in his son, Joseph A. LUCADO, who married Martha MATHERLIN (MATHERLY) in Franklin Co., Va. in 1845. Their children include: John S., Andrew Jackson, George, William, and Susan E.
Any information would be appreciated

I am looking for descendants of Jacob Nicewander (died 1805). If you have any information on any Nicewanders (or other spellings) who lived in Giles and/or Bland County, please contact me.
My great grandfather, William Clefton SANDERS was supposedly born near Mountain Lake in Giles County, Virginia on 9 November 1848. He died in Marion, Smyth Co., Va. in 1957
His first marriage was to Maggie HODGE in 1898. That union produced one child, Annie Mae, born 25 December 1884. Maggie Hodge died shortly after giving birth.
Word of mouth passage of family history says that he may have been the offspring of an Indian woman named Sanders (Saunders) and a HOFFMAN (HUFFMAN) man.
In the 1900 Census for the Pembroke section of Giles County, there is a listing for the household of William H. Huffman, 54, single. In his household is a Mary Sanders, 46, listed as a house servant and Annie M. Saunders, 6, granddaughter. She is the right age to have possibly been the Annie Mae born to the first marriage of William C. Sanders.
William C. Sanders’ second marriage was to Josephine Swecker Copeland. Her maiden name was Swecker and she had been married previously to a Mr. Copeland.
Family history also says that William C. Sanders had four siblings, three boys and one girl. One of the boys may have been named Calvin and the girl may have been named Maggie.
Anyone who has information about this family or anyone connected to them, is urged to contact me.
In advance,I thank you for your assistance.
