I am searching for informaion of my gr gr grandfather, James M. McDermitt. He was born in Mason Co. W. VA ab. 1819, one of 14 children of John M. McDermitt and Rachel McDaniel McDermitt. James married Carolina Powel in Mason Co. in 1848 or 1849. In the 1850 US census they were living in Jackson Co. W.VA and had one son Mhyrum, my gr. grandfather. Family records show that they had at least two other children, James and John. I can find no other trace of them after 1850, although Mhyrum (Meyer) was in Madison Co. IN. in 1870. Do you know of this family???
