|As the oldest sibling, I inherited most of the family pictures and history. So I have been further researching and writing stories and vignettes about all branches of my extended family. |
That includes Selby and Douglas families; Wenink, Warren, Sturm, and many other surnames.
Our Selby line begins with Jeremiah who married Susanna Dutton and died in Connecticut in 1725. His grandson Jeremiah migrated to New York, and his great grandson Dyar, born in CT in 1784, died in Ohio in 1873. His grandson, Vinton A. Selby, my grandfather, was the first Harrison County, WV, public health officer.
The Douglas family that I married into, goes back to Levi Doulgas, one of the first settlers in Harrison County, WV when it was still unsettled frontier territory in the 1770's.
