I am searching for any information on the FOWLER family of Giles County. I have been searching for some time, with no results, for my grandfather, Banner Haven KELLEY b. 7 November 1879 in Giles Co. I was just told he was born a FOWLER, not a Kelley. He was “taken in” by a family named Kelley and changed his name to theirs. Do not know if there were any other siblings. Banner married Maude Victoria ROBINETTE b. 30 March 1879 of Bland Co., Va. All 5 of their children were born in Bluefield, WV., and raised as Kelleys. Any info. please e-mail me. Thank You,

Thomas KIRK
Two Thomas KIRKs are found on Buckeye Mountain in the 1790’s. Believe the elder was brother of John Kirk (1754-1850) of Green Valley and that the younger was son of the elder Thomas. The younger was known as Rev. Thomas Kirk, a Methodist minister. Who were his children? I believer possibilities are Hiram, Andrew and Araminta Kirk.

Does anyone have any information about Dr. Francis Greene ANDERSON? He was a Country Doctor in Giles county in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. He was also the man who built and installed the first telephone system in Giles County.
He was born 15 April 1868, in Giles County. He married Minnie HUGHES on 24 July 1889, at Wabash, Va., (ceremony performed by Reverend E. F. Glenn), and he departed this life on 12 September 1954, as a result of an automobile accident in Montgomery Co. Minnie Hughes Anderson departed this life on 7 June 1961.
My wife is his Grandaughter.
We have quite a lot of information about his descendents, but know nothing about his parents, or the antecedents of his wife Minnie Hughes. Any information about the parents or other ancestors of Dr. Anderson would be much appreciated.

All the previous names from Giles Co. are interrelated to some degree. Would like to trade info. My wife is descended from the revolutionary war veteran Charles DUNCAN and his wife Margaret KIRK through their daughter Elizabeth (1791-1873) and her husband John SOUTHERN (1774-1841). All the above mentioned lived in Giles Co.
