Surnames: Massey, Suffrons
Looking for descendants of Samuel and Sarah Suffrons Massey. They were married Dec.27, 1808 in Jefferson County, VA. They were in Jefferson Co. until around 1831-34 they then moved to St. Joseph County, IN. They were in the 1840 St. Joseph Co. census but had left by 1850. We believe Samuel is the son of Samuel and Tamer Massey. We think Tamer died and in 1801 Samuel married Catherine Farnsworth of Loudoun County, VA. Both Samuel's were in Jefferson Co., VA in 1810 census. The older Samuel also moved to in Indiana in 1831. Would like to locate Samuel's other siblings.

Surnames: Massey, Cowgill, Blundell
This is what I believe to be true for Samuel Massey, whose daughter married William C. Blundell, a Methodist Circuit Rider, (Fauquier Co, VA 1820)who we think went first to Ohio and then to Illinois (1830 census Jo Daviess Co.) I have a copy of Wm and Mary's 1819 marriage bond that has on it a signed statement by Wm's father Daniel W.Blundell,who authorizes the Clerk of the Court to issue the marriage license between his minor son and Mary Massie daughter of Samuel Massie deceased. Jonathan Bradfield was a co-bondsman w/Wm. Blundell. Mary Massie was already of legal age to marry. Wm. was only 19.
Mary was called Polly and she certainly could have had a brother Samuel, but could the deceased father also have moved to IN in 1831? Perhaps we are dealing with 3 generations here, rather than two?
My marriage date for Samuel to Tamer was strictly a supposition based on dau Mary's birth date. He could have married much earlier and I don't know any of his other children's names. Would love to find out.
I am researching Blundells but primarily a younger brother of his, Daniel W. Blundell/Blundon. I hope this helps you.
