Thanks. Your information gives me new clues to pursue.For your information, I have connected with a distant cousin, a Nelson Eddy from Ohio who has in his possession a letter written by Samuel Eddy of Monroe Co. WV to his brothers in Ohio, informing them of their mother's death, as she lived with Samuel in her last years. The letter is dated 1856. This has to be Jensey Sprout Eddy.The letter also mentions his brother Thomas, my gg-grandfather, who was living in Franklin County Virginia at that time.
If you have any e-mail addresses or websites related to the researchers you describe, I would appreciate you passing it on.You can e-mail me direct.Thanks again.
