Since I posted the query, we have learnd a little more about the DAYWALTS in Mason County VA. (WVA). Jane's maiden name was HOWARD. She was still in Mason Co. in 1880. Thomas and Jane Howard Daywalt had 7 children- 3 married in to the DeWeese family. Several sons and grandsons served in the Civil War. My ancestor was son Henry and his first wife 'Polly' VanMatre (VanMeter) who lived in Mason Co. Several of the children went to Indiana.
