I'm researching a Jacob Shimp family that lived near Brucetown, Virginia. I think that Jacob might have been the son of Jonas Shimp of Berkeley County, (West) Virginia. I'm looking for information on Jonas S. Shimp, a son of John and Eva Mary (Speck) Shimp. He married Elizabeth Kerns, daughter of Jacob Kerns (b. 1768) of Berkeley County, VA. Elizabeth Kerns was born on Jan. 24, 1794 and died on Dec. 17, 1874 at Jones Spring, WV. Would anyone have any additional information on the Shimps and Specks?
