|I am researching the Vires Family from Breathitt County Kentucky, in paticular. And the Counties surrounding it and from there the Rest of the Country.|
David Vires aka David Via Jr. was originally from Amhurst County VA. It is said that his Uncle GIDEON travelled at one time with Daniel Boone on a trip to Kentucky (while I haven't been able to prove or disprove this STORY at this time it makes for one HECK of a LEGEND) if so he probally regalled his young nephews with tales of the "WEST".
The VIRES Family is one of the OLDEST Families in Eastern KY, David and Nancy Vires moved into Clay County, KY sometime between the birth of their Daughter,POLLY, in 1819 in Franklin County VA and 1820 when they Show up in the CENSUS of Clay County. They pretty much settled in and around what is now Breathitt County KY and their Descendents spread to the SURROUNDING Counties and Ultimately from there to the rest of the Country from around the late 1880's to the PRESENT.
If you are a DESCENDENT of David and Nancy I encourage you to CONTACT me for an INVITE to the VIRES Clan Ole Kentucky Home at MyFamily.com.
I HOPE you ENJOY
