looking for info on Rev J. A. Crayton & wife Mary Morehead married Nov 1 1849. I have a copy of Mary's obit but no date on it? she died Nov 9 ??, maybe born about March 8 1831 or 1823? they had 8 children, 2 died in infancy & 1 dau Mrs. Lillian Carr died in 1893. I found in 1850 census a John A. Crayton age 21 b. in OH & wife Mary 19 b. in VA living in Carroll co OH, lee twp. next door to Thomas Crayton 57 b. MD & wife Elizabeth 60 b. MD.
I'm looking for info on Mary Morehead Crayton's parents- William Morehead & Sarah RAlston - who were in Brooke co VA around 1829 when she got some land from her parents near Kings Creek. I can't find them on the census records after 1840- where did they go? where are they buried? did they have any other kids..? always more to dig into.. thanks for any help you can send my way on any of these folks. Happy trails on your researching, Kim Ralston Dresser
