Hi Sherri :)

One of my great-great grandmothers was named Rose Anne Toliver. She married John Wesley Duncan in in Allehgany Co., NC in 1869. I've managed to trace the Tolivers back to Bartholomew Tagliaferro b. about 1542 in Venice, Italy.

Where I'm running into trouble is actually on tracing back Rose Anne's husband, the aforementioned John Wesley Duncan. I can find lots of Duncans, of course, but am having a bit of difficulty determining to which of them, if any, he belongs.

Of course, I'm interested in any further information your might have about the Tolivers, but I'd also be interested to know if you've found anything about John Wesley Duncan in connection, perhaps, to your research.

Any other replies, ideas, or leads would certainly be welcome!

Happy Hunting,

Beth

By any chance, would you have any information on the Solomon Toliver family. I do know that he was married to a Peggy Ann Blevins & had a daughter whose name was Malinda. Malinda was married to a George M. Reeves & they had a son whose name was Van Worth Reeves. But that's about the extent of the information that I have.

I have Rosa Ann Toliver's father as Starling Toliver.
I have Starling Toliver's father as Jesse/Jessie (Taliaferro) Toliver.

I would love to know who the father of Jesse/Jessie is...and the documentation that proves that fact. I've turned over every rock I can, and I haven't proven who his father was. You have the the answer to my prayer.

Thanking you in advance,
Len

Alas, it is very unlikely that the Tolivers of Alleghany & Wilkes County are related to the Taliaferros of Virginia (who descend from Bartholomew Taliaferro of Venice). The possibility of relationship was recently disproven by DNA evidence. See my discussion of this at <http://www.moonzstuff.com/Cheek/ToliverJohn.html#1>;

Hi Sheri, I am a descendant Martha Toliver & John Fender. Full lineage: Jesse Toliver>Martha Toliver>Sarah Fender (m. Solomon Jennings)>Martha Jennings (m. Richard Dixie Cheek)>Mack Cheek>Dean Cheek (my grandfather).

The genetic results were very disappointing to me also. I'd done quite a bit of research on the Taliaferros and even written quite an article on them for my family.

I have taken this as a lesson to be more careful about believing undocumented connections ... especially to notable families or people.

On another side of my family, I have upset everyone by telling them that I am convinced we are NOT descended from a certain signer of the Declaration of Independence who happened to share my great-grandmother's surname. Some of my relatives have invested a lot of ego into this belief (which has been in the family for at least 3 generations).
