I am also reseaching family from Preston Co., & Tucker Co., WV. I have a James W. "Wash" Clark who married an Ida Pifer. They later moved to Lenawee Co., Michigan. James was born about 1856 in WV so Ida probably was born about that time too. I have other Pifers in my database but can't connect Ida up to any of them. Do you have any Ida's in your file?
