Looking for researchers of Richard Fields and Margaret Crabtree family of Russell County, Virginia.Their daughter Margaret Fields married Stephen Brown of Russell County, Va. My goal is to determine the parents of Stephen Brown.Stephen and Margaret had a daughter named Margaret AnnBrown.I have her born 1816 in Rockbridge County, Va. and died 1851 in Montgomery County, Indiana.I'm not sure about the birth place.Margaret Ann Brown married David VanCleave Smoch in August of 1835 in Jefferson Co., Indiana.He was the son of Samuel V. Smock and Rachel Ryker.
David and Margaret Smock had 3 children: William Calvin Smock 1841-1888 born in Indiana Finley McKennan Smock 1844-1922 born in Indiana Harriett Newell Smock 1847-1870 born in Indiana
After Margaret Ann died, David married Ann Elizabeth Sherrill and they had two more children: Andrianna and Jesse Duncan.
