It has been about 10 years since I began my never-ending search for the parents of Jesse BIAS(S)/BYOUS b. 1786 who married Rhoda BLOYD 1809 in Green Co., KY.Either they split up or Rhoda died before Jessie migrated first to IN where he met and married his second wife, Matilda Jane PERRY in 1831. His son Jesse Jr. stayed in IN and married and Jesse Sr. migrated on to IL then MO where he settled in Taney Co., MO.He eventually migrated to present-day Springdale, AR where he died about 1870.The cemetery he MAY have been buried in was destroyed so exact dates will probably never be known.
I am HOPING to connect with the WV Bias line one day and I think that will happen as Jesse was born in Union Co., VA which is now Green Co., KY the best I can tell.
If you can help please email.I have researched the line pretty well and with a lot of help from a lot of people have a pretty good trail for him.I just cannot get any farther back than him so I cannot connect with other Bias lines that are well researched.Every lead so far has ended at a brick wall.
My line is:
Jesse Bias & Rhoda Bloyd Hiram Bias Sr. & Nancy Jane Tabor John Armstrong Bias & Mary Henson John Alogan Bias & Amie Malinda Friend John Alogan Bias Jr. (J.R. Bias) & Thelma Lorene Hampton THEN ME
