HI JUDYANN
IT WAS GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU I REALLY DIDN'T THINK THAT I WOULD GET A RESPONSE.
IT'S FUNNY THAT YOUR DAD WAS NAMED RICHARD BECAUSE I HAD A LITTLE SISTER NAMED JUDY. I ONLY MET MY GRANDFATHER ONCE AND I NEVER SAW MY GRANDMOTHER. THEY DIED A DAY APART IN 1968.
I KNOW THAT MY DAD HAD FIVE SISTERS LOIS, MAGGIE, LINDA, LILLIAN AND KATE. HE ALSO HAD FIVE BROTHERS ELBERT, JB, CORBIN, JOE BILL AND DAVID.
IF YOU HAVE ANY INFO PLEASE SEND IT. IF NOT THANKS ANY WAY FOR THE RESPONSE. GOOD LUCK
RICK

Hello,

I was browsing through the Roots Web site
and decided to look for my grandfather's family name, His name; "Neal Gillenwater".

I believe is was born in or around Ft. Blackmore, VA. sometime in the early 1900's
or even late 1800's.
He died sometime in 1959, of colon cancer and was buried in; " Holston Valley Cemetery", weber City, VA.
I was told by my Grandmother (before her death) there was a family
cemetery for the "Gillenwaters" in Ft. Blackmore, VA. but she cound not
remember exactly where it was located.

Would you have ever ran across this name anywhere ?
His parents, Cornelius and Elizabeth Gillenwater.

Thanks,
Donna

GLAD TO HEAR FROM YOU , BUT I'M SORRY THAT I CAN'T HELP YOU (YET). I HAVEN'T KNOWN VERY MANY OF MY ANCESTORS BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE OURS ARE FROM THE SAME AREA SO HOPEFULLY WE MAY BE RELATED.
I NOW LIVE IN LURAY,VIRGINIA AND I PLAN TO GO TO FORT BLACKMORE, VA. IN APRIL TO LOOK FOR SOME RELATIVES. WHILE I AM THERE I WILL TRY TO FIND OUT ABOUT YOUR GRANDFATHER FOR YOU.
I KNOW HOW IT FEELS TO WANT TO KNOW. GOOD LUCK AND KEEP IN TOUCH. YOU CAN E-MAIL ME IF I CAN BE OF ANY MORE ASSISTANCE.

Iam seeking information about James Gillenwater who settled in Pike County,Ohio around the Civil War time.I know he enlisted in the war on Sept 08, 1864 and was mustered out at Nashville,Tn on June 14, 1865.I would like to know who his parents were, where they came from and any other information known.
He married Charlotte Blakeman(unknown date and place)and they had two sons James M. William (not sure of all the children).
James M. married Phoebe Frye in 1902 and had 7 boys and 2 girls.One of his boys was my father McClelland. Any help would be appreciated.
