Re: Mary S. Heffinger, b. 1873, Virginia
I have no idea hwere in North Carolina George and his wife Virginia are from. I haven't even a clue where to start looking.
Where is Dry Fork VA?
I am from VA and living here now. I have gathered my information from the library and the military information of George from the internet.
You are right, Heffinger is not a widespread name. I have not come across if very much in my research. My Buchanan relatives are from Washington Co. and Smyth Co. VA. While researching in Smyth Co. I ran across a cemetary with some Heffingers- name spelled the same way, but have no other information to tie all of these people together.
I only have George, his wife Virginia and their daughter, Mary S. All of this information is from the marriage record of Mary to my ggrandfather, John Wesley Buchanan.
I have posted on county boards for Smyth Co., and in Virginia in general, and have got no response- until you. ")
I think Heffinger is a lovely name and I would love to learn of its origin. I'm making another trip to the library this week, so maybe I'll dig up something else.
Let's keep each other posted.
