Hi Daryl,

Since I e-mailed you directly, I will be brief here...As you can see, I noted that in your reference to Agnes that her surname was Williams...and that there were James, Williams, White and Wilburn connections with Ducans in Giles, VA and also Carter Co KY...lots of them it would appear...

Hope to be able to learn how to publish my database which has a number of lines of Carter Co KY residences who connect either to my own Wilburn line or connect to lines of families that Wilburns married into...

For the most part, the families that I do have in my database who settled into Carter Co KY came from the following places: Giles, VA, Fleming Co KY, Lawrence Co KY, Floyd Co KY, Russell Co VA, Fauquier Co VA, Bedford Co VA,
Halifax, Co VA, Lee Co VA, Claiborne Co TN and Surry and Wilkes Co NC. Whew! I'm tired.

Anyone interested please contact me...I have info that I love to share and I always come away with good folks adding to my own store of knowledge (limited as it is).

I would love to visit beautiful Carter KY and the good people there again

Surnames: Duncan, Wilburn, Marr
Hello Vikky, it appears that our thread concerning Patterson Wilburn and the Duncan family has been lost in the re-structering of the system. I hope that there have not been too many others.

Edward Roy Duncan was a brother to my gr grandfather, William Thomas Duncan. Their parents Leroy & Agnes Duncan moved to Kentucky from Faquier county VA sometime after 1810. Leroy's parents were Joseph Sr. and Jemima (Marr) Duncan. They moved to Greenup county in 1810.

According to research done by Mary Ann Dobson of California, it appears that this Joseph Duncan and Rev Landon Duncan of Giles county VA were 1st cousins. I had never seen any evidence that these families had communication with each other after leaving Fauquier county, but your research seems to show that they did. Thank you for passing it on.To read more about Rev. Landon Duncan, follow this link: http://scholar2.lib.vt.edu/spec/mss/duncan/duncanhp.htm

I would like to hear anything else that you may have that connects these Carter county folks back to Giles or Fauquier county VA.

Surnames: JAMES, MOORE, ZORNS, ROSS
Vikky,
You don't happen to have a William R James b. 1818 married to a Matilda Moore b. abt 1817 anywhere in your records , do you? I have been trying to find his siblings and parents. I have run across much info on all the other James' in Carter county, but can't seem to tie him in anywhere. He spent the last 20 yrs or so of his life in Wilson co,KS,(he died in 1904), where some of George & Rebecca(Zorns) kids ended up. I know George's oldest son was named William, but he married Elizabeth Ross. My cousin has been in contact with one of their descendants.
Any hole you can punch in my brick wall will be greatly appreciated.

Surnames: JAMES, WHITE
My husbands ancestors run through two of the sons of John James. The sons names are George James b: 1797 and Bazel James b: 1807 of Carter Co. We also have the surname of White, but they are from Roane Co, VA area mainly. I would enjoy hearing what you know of the James line.
