Re: Rev. War Geo Cress descendants Research Group
I am a descendant of George Cress Jr. who married Charity Morgan in 1790 in Rockbridge, Co. VA.I have done some research on the family in PA, VA, and KY, but have not yet discovered the death date and place of either George or Charity.Have you?I descend through their daughter Margaret who married Thomas Bentley in Floyd Co. KY in 1812.
I will be spending some time in SLC at the FHL in June if there is anything in particular you would like me to look up for you.Like you, I have found much mis-information on the Internet.It is sometimes helpful for clues, but I am only interested in adding documented information into my data base. I would be interested in participating in a research group that relies on primary source documents.
Oh yes, I recently found a Letcher Co. Ky Adminstrative Bond for Mary Potter to administer the estate of Isaac Potter dated 4 Jan 1874.One of the bondsmen was Benjamin Cress.Any idea who that might be?
