I am checking into Jesse Orear who m. Melinda Holton on 12/20/1783 in Faquier County, VA.Jesse's parents were John Orear and Malinda Madden of Faquier/Prince William Counties, VA.John and Malinda Madden had about 11 kids.Jesse's brother, William b. 12/1/1761 moved to Boone County, MO.
I am really researching the Holton family.I find my William Holton living in Boone County MO in 1880 census.His entire family lives in Cabell, Lincoln, Boone Counties VA.I don't know why he moved to Boone Co. MO, but maybethere is a relation between William Holton and Melinda Holton.I know that William Holton's father, George Holton and mother Phebe (Unknown) lived for a few years in Greenbrier County VA (WV) about 1799.Greenbrier County was partly formed from Faquier County VA.I am hoping to find that George is a brother or cousin to Melinda Holton, and am also hoping that someone who has done research on this Orear line might have more information on Melinda Holton.I have not been able to get past George Holton prior to 1799.
PLEASE e-mail me if you have any information whatsoever!I have much information on this Holton family and would be more than happy to share this info.You can also reach me at Kstuck@wvwcc.org.THANKS MUCH!!!!
