I don't know what just happened- genforum posted before I was finished! Sorry!
I went to the library today, for a brief moment- they were having some sort of conference, and my daughter was with me-
Rockingham County, Virginia Marriages (1778-1850) by John Vogt and T. William Kethley Jr 1984 Iberian Publishing Company, Athens, Georgia
(Mind you, Moyers was spelled a variety of ways, some even dropped the S,so I tried checking them all that I could think of)
Jacob Moyer & Sarah YountMarch 22, 1808 Peter Moyers & Catharine Bagerly Circa July 1800 Christian(I found this one, thinking maybe Christopher?) Peter Moyers & Mary StovaldMarch 5, 1840 Jacob Moyers & Barbara Ann Allebaugh September 5, 1850 Jacob Moyers & Catherine Bloss June 18, 1799 Jacob Moyers & Mary Ann Hollerman January 30, 1843 Jacob Myers & Catherine Baughman September 18, 1804
The relationships, ????
The books I need, get this, are on check out- since when does the library check out reference materials?I "scolded" the librarian about that, and she said she didn't understand it either- She's going to get the ones from the main library, and have them sent over by tomorrow, so we will find out more- Thing is, there is no main books on the surnames you gave- is Mathatis a surname or a first?There are Mathias's in this neck of the woods, and I looked for a surname on that, but no avail, yet.I didn't find anything on Wiley/Wagley.Not to say that they don't exist- I think I'm looking in the wrong books- hence, the ones I'm looking at tomorrow.I didn't see any marriages before what seemed 1800.I'm carefully assuming that you are looking before that date?
I'm also looking to see the relationship of Phillip, Peter, Christopher, and David, but as I said, the one book I know would have it will be in tomorrow.
The main book, I"m not sure if you have heard of it-
"The Moyer/Moyers Families of Crab Run" by Vincent Moyer Smith.The author died a few years ago, unfortunately, and I found out today that the Moyers who are still in this neck of the woods are looking to add to what he had.I hope so- if you look up Rockingham County, and find a country store by the name of Turner Hams, Inc, which is actually very popular for the hams- they also are the pivot point for alot of genealogical books for sale in this area- which is neat.My mom in law got most of her books from there, Vincent's book being one of them.Holsingers, Hulveys, Doves, Fulks, Moyers, and so forth, spring to mind.
I will have to get up to the courthouse at some point this week- The main genealogical library is across the street from them, located in Harrisonburg.That Naked Creek/Shenandoah River is in this neck of the woods, and so I find the Botetourt thing odd.
Let me know what you think, and I'll get up there tomorrow and see what we can find. Keittaa:)
