I'm currently reading your book "By The Banks of the Holly". I realize I'm responding to a very old post but would love to exchange info with you. I believe we may be related.
A few of my Braxton; Upshur; Webster; Nicholas maternal surnames: Hinkle; Skidmore; Bickel; Perrine; Alkire. Please respond if you would like to share info.

PS ... my 3rd Great Grandfather was John Campbell Perrine via his youngest child Melvina Susan Perrine. She and mother Nancy BICKEL Perrine lived with Matthew Perrine after the death their father/husband. Look forward to hearing from you.
