Hi-
I realize that your message on the Wootton Boards is old-however, I am seeking information on my father's family which isfrom Buckingham. My father, James Andrew Wootton, Jr. was born in Richmond. His father, James Andrew Wootton, Sr. I believe was born and married in Buckingham. He married
Angeline Vass, who I believe was also from Buckingham. Do you have any information on this?? Betty Cutts

I am familiar with Levi. He did move to the Painted Rock area and then To Kanawha County WVa. I am related to the Powers family of Kanawha County. At some time in the history books, my family of Powers had changed their name from Poor to Powers. There was never a logical reason for the name change only that it did happen. My great great grandfather was Levi Poor. He had a son named Thomas. I believe that he was the one responsible for the name change. You can reach me at MagpieCole@aol.com. I would be very interested in what you have for Levi's past. I have everything from WVa. on. Thanks - Maggie

I contacted you some time ago regarding the Wootton/Wooton/Wooten family in Buckingham County Va. I have more information. I found Erving Wooton in the 1930 US Census. He was born around 1883 in Virginia (possibly Buckingham County, VA and was married to Bessie (last name unknown). I could not find him in the other US census records. I am looking for his parent's names. Does he have a connection with any of the Woottons you have researched? Thanks for your help.

Hi I am not sure if this helps but my grandfather (Claude Thomas Powers)told me that his grandfather and his grandfathers brothers changed their name from Poor to Powers. I am not sure if this is the same family or not but if it is the reason I was told was they were sick of being called the poor boys.
