Hi Ted:I too have been doing genealogy but for over 10 years.I have about 95,000 on my tree.I am researching all branches.The Pack's are not related to me in any way.They are the ancestors of my good friend from high school Bill Wear.His wife Anne and I were best of friends.Anyway they don't have a computer and asked for my assistance.I have ancestry.com but pay about $300 a year but may change it this year and lower the price.
My friends and I live in Washington State.Bills and his family came from West Virginia.Bill was born in Charleston, Kanawha Co., West VA. His grandfather Charles Franklin Wear married Caroline V. Pack, daughter of George W. and Sophronia Medley Pack.Bill found some notes that his mom had written and that is how I got started on this project.I am also tracing Anne's family.
I found John and Margaret Gunnoe on the 1850 Census.
1850 United States Federal Census, District 29, Kanawha, Virginia about John Gunnow Name: John Gunnow Age: 58 Estimated birth year: abt 1792 Birth Place: Virginia Gender: Male Occupation: None Home in 1850: District 29, Kanawha, Virginia Family Number: 1943 Wife: Margaret Gunnow, age 40, born VA Dau: Mary Gunnow , age18, born VA Dau: Priscilla Gunnow, age 15, born VA Dau: Sarah J Gunnow, age 13, born VA Son: John Gunnow, age 11, born VA Son: George Gunnow, age10, born VA Son: William Gunnow, age 7, born VA Dau: Julia Gunnow, age 9, born VA Son: Isaac Gunnow, age 18, born VA Source Citation: Year: 1850; Census Place: District 29, Kanawha, Virginia; RollM432_954; Page: 132B; Image: 268.
I also found information about the Gunnoe's on the internet that has been helpful.
Thanks again for all your help.I just wish we could have found Geo. W. Pack's parents.
