I am researching the surname Landes and Greenaway.My earliest descendent I have traced is Frederick Landes born in 1777 in Rockingham County, Virginia.He was the father of 5 known children, Felix, Joseph, John, Frederick and Jacob.There possible could have been 5 more.
My lineage in through Joseph, born in 1811 in Rockingham, Virginia.He married Nancy Richey in 1836 and had 3 children (also 3 children from a previous marriage).Samuel, one of the sons, was my great grandfather.He served in the Civil War for the State of Indiana.He married Lydia Jane Dunkin in 1866 and had 6 children.My grandfather, Thomas, was one of these.He married Mary Trent and they had 2 sons, Lloyd Trent, my father and Thomas Noel.
