Need info on L. Calvin WICKHAM who married Nancy KENZIE 30 August 1838 in Floyd Co., Va., but lived in Giles Co., Va. at one time. Their daughter Hannah Jane WICKHAM married George Valentine CORELL 6 January 1867 in Montgomery Co., Va., but one of their children was born in Giles Co.
George V. CORELL was the son of George Feltha CORELL and Malinda WIMMER, the daughter of Jacob WIMMER and Hannah LEMON.
Paternally great-grandfather James Tyler BOWLING b. 5 April 1838 in Franklin Co., Va., d. 19 October 1920 in Giles Co., Va., married 11 January 1866 in Patrick Co., Va. to Mary Elizabeth LYONS b. 15 June 1846 in Henry Co., Va., d. 10 May 1924, she was the daughter of Lucy LIONS.
James Tyler BOWLING was the son of William G. BOWLING and Nancy E. MOLES who married 14 August 1833 in Patrick Co., Va. Parents of William G. BOWLING were James BOWLING and, we think, Elizabeth MORRISON, both born about 1775. Who were their parents?

I am looking for the parents of Clara THOMPSON who was born about 1820 and lived, I believe, in that part of Giles County that became Mercer County (WV). She married about 1840 James PHILLIPS (the marriage register for Mercer County covering this period is lost). Any leads are appreciated.
I have a second question, who were the parents of Hiram KIRK? He does not fit into John KIRK’s line, but maybe Thomas KIRK. Hiram married the youngest daughter of Christian and NANCY Vaught.
As always, thank you.

I am interested in finding information about my father, Robert Monroe FIELDS (I believe that was his full name), and his family. I never did meet my father, he left my mother (Betty GANOE FIELDS FERGUSON) when I was a small baby. He passed away somewhere in northern Virginia sometime around 1987. I believe he was in his early 50’s. I do know he was an electrician at Appalachian Power Co. in Glyn Lyn, Va. some years ago. He has a sibling, or siblings, in northern Virginia, Alexandria. They will not respond to my writings. I would just like to know a little bit about him.
