Re: J M Vanhoy or Van Hoy of NC
If you already found a J.M VanHoy in a record it would be helpful if you repeated all the pertinent information in that record for the rest of us to search our records. I have more than 60 candidates whose names begin with J and few have middle names; so I wouldn't know I would never know if your "J" is in my database unless I could also tie him to names you say are in the 1930 census. And I am not going to try to find the same 1930 census record you found, after all, I'm not researching your line, just hoping to lend a hand by spending about as much time as I've spent chastising you here (but in a purely educational intent.) You see, WE are not mystics and cannot read minds.
Looking for more input (clues) from you.
