Re: Roles family in WV/NC
Melinda, you'll never know how happy I was to see your posting on the Roles surname.Have been checking this site for a long time and yours is the first on it.I don't know when it opened up for posting, but certainly glad it did.
I won't be able to help you on any of your ancestors; however, maybe you'll be able to help me and we might tie together.
I have a Rebecca Roles (b. ca. 1792 in Virginia) who died in Morgan County, Illinois and who married James N. Salyers (b. ca. 1791 in Virginia and d. ca. 1852 in Scott County, Ky.They were married 6Jan1813 in Fayette Co., Ky.
My first question is whether your Mordecai and my Rebecca were bother and sister.
James and Rebecca were parents of six children, one of them being Issac Salyers, born ca. 1820 in Ky.He married on 21Feb1839 in Fayette Co., Ky. to Caroline Fitzgerald (daughter of Silas Fitzgerald and Susannah Tyler) who was born ca. 1817 and d. ca. 1841 in Fayette Co., Ky., not long after the birth of their only child, Susan Rebecca Salyers (15Jun1840, Georgetown, Ky. - 10Dec1917, Jacksonville, Il.)(Isaac remarried to an Eliza Stubbs and they had additional children).
Susan Rebecca Salyes married on 25Dec1856, Fayette Co., Ky. to Barton W. Haley (10Jun1835, Fayette Co., Ky. - 3Jul1904, Morgan Co., Il.) ... and that is how I tie in.
Now, to back up just a bit ... Barton W. Haley's parents were Johnson Haley (ca. 1796 - Jan,1859, Ky.) and SARAH ELIZABETH LILLEY, died between 1835-1850 in Ky.They were married 15Jun1818 in Fayette Co., Ky.
I noticed there were two Lilleys connected to your ancestors.
I have been doing research for over 25 years and I have yet to find anything at all on Johnson Haley's parents, nor a thing on Elizabeth Lilley's parents.I sure would like to know if my Roles/Lilleys connect to what you have so far.I certanily believe it's possible
Reply to me via my email address if you would like ... but I sure would love to hear from you.I have over 8,100 individuals in my family tree but have been stuck on my primary lineage for years now.This could be the break.
