I believe we're related, if Wilbur had a brother named James, sons of Charley Frank. James left home at 13 to make his fortune, so they may not have known each other that well. I have done quite a bit of research on direct ancestors, so drop me a note and I'll let you know what I have.

What information are you looking for? I believe we're related to the other Ravenscrafts in the U.S., plus the Ravenscroft line that went to Missouri; I get hung up on establishing the last few generations. I just last night got a copy of the James Ravenscraft - Ellen (Elender) McCann marriage certificate (September 29, 1869, Pendleton County - this would be Wilbur's - and James' - grandparents). You wouldn't happen to know anything else about this James, would you? If I can establish his parents, I can take it all the way back to England and beyond, at least based on a computer trail. Let me know where you are.

Surnames: Ravenscraft
It has been a couple years since I did any work on the Ravenscraft line and what happened is I had a computer crash and lost literally everything. The only thing I had printed out had names on it with just a couple dates and I had lost interest instead of trying to recoop. I have gone back to my immediate family and got alot of info and I haven't put it in our tree as of yet. What sparked an interest is for some unknown reason while researching my husbands family I put in Ravenscraft and I even found the cemetery where my Grandparents/Aunts/Uncles/Cousins are buried online and that started a rush for me. Now I backup my backup. Unfortunate but you learn with one lesson. I now have 2 fililng cabinets and every piece is documented and printed into surnames. We will be going to WVA next weekend for 2 reunions on my husbands side and when we get back my goal is to try to keep the interest. I know I had went back to 1795 and thought that was great. I have recently been talking a Nancy Bray and she remembers corresponding with me seveal years ago and when I went to checking postings it was 1999 when I had even posted. Sorry about that. I would appreciate anything you could send my way. I do remember the McCann name. I will try to see what else I can come up with. Thanks and God bless,
