I find the name Roy Ashbury associated with the state of WV. One Obit for Bonnie Ashbury in the Misc. Kanahaw Co., West Virginia Obits has wife Bonnie Ashbury married to surviving husband, Roy C. Ashbury. This does not mean they lived in WV – maybe she was from there and her obit in the newspaper there. There is also a listing for a Roy Ashbury on Ancestry for WW11 Veterans.

that isnt him he was a ww1 vet and died in 1981… thing is no one seems to be able to know who this roy asbury is. his records seems to be wiped out … We have Veteran records stating he was born in TAzwell and grew up there. his Army records are wiped out his family records are also gone so i am putting things out on line to see if some one knows him.. his mother was lydia.. she married a hardsock and moved to ny. he married a woman doris bruce but divorced her later on. he lived according to his va records with the cherrokee and some black family in tazwell. thank you so much for your help …December 3, 2003 at 2:13 am #35463Searching WomanParticipant
Father’s side: Chandler – Sussex County, DE from abt.1810. VA prior to that.
Johnson – Sussex County, DE and quite possibly Nanticoke
Hall – Worcester County, MD – not known if Native
Currently searching out the Chandler line. Not from the Eastern Shore of Virginia, nor apparantly from the Tidewater. I’m thinking south/west VA.

Hi Mr. Collins
My grandmother, Luella C.Coleman 1896 was born in Clovertown, in Halifax. Her father’s name was
Wyatt Coleman, 1883 also born in Clovertown. I have reseached the Coleman family back to Wyatt’s father
John Coleman. My reseach has my coleman family all being born in Clovertown, Halifax. I am wondering if
there is relationship between my Coleman family and your Coleman family. Luella’s father also Mary Thomas also from Clovertown, however, she was not the mother of my grandmother. It seems that my grandmother’s mother was deceased while my grandmother was little.

I have Ritchey’s from xenia…..xenia is in Greene county. I Robert Richey, Mary Richey 1769,Robert Scott and a whole line of double Scott’s. The problem in Greene co with my family is that they changed the spelling of their names along with birth dates anywhere the native or aa lines connected. I have Robison, Steele, Ritchey, Richey, Scott,Smoyer, Herron, Huston,Hawkins, Hunt, Cook, Cooper,Wallace,Webb Collins,Cramer,Bennett,Bevis,Brown,Johnson,Rodgers,Taylor,Young,Williamson,Crull,Tice, Schenk,Aertzen,Kovenhaven,Voorhis,Monfort Mother’s are buried and changed right around the time of the trail of tears. Beard,Hutson,Oldshoe,Tucker,House,Rowe,Beall,Beal,Spencer,Bell,MicKey,Shannon,McElwain
Many came up from North & S.Carolina with the quakers to Preble Ohio. My ggrandfather Benjamin Williamson has a birth date of 1829. His mother was Eliza Robison….she has no family….he doesn’t match any of the records or census of that date in Greene county. I suspect he was indian & his name was changed. Many of the list here have different spellings & birth dates.December 3, 2003 at 2:13 am #35512VickyLynnParticipant

Do you know if your Cornell line is Blackfoot?December 3, 2003 at 2:13 am #35558NannanaeParticipant
sorry Vance you asked so many questions I knew but could not give you some kind of proof.. as family tales aren’t considered proof by anyone it seems.. so vance here is your proof!
well you can varify Ridge party went down the Ohio.
check moravian records PA/OH 1837? or maybe 36 can’t remember
they noted waiting for the ridge party who was late in arriving.. and the mission was worried about the largbe party that was late or missing.. !
I know why they were late… Shooeboots sister , probably his twin sister died on the way there . the ridge party floated down the ohio to IT with goods for their houses. then met with murder in IT and floated back up the ohio to the Moravians, and some settled around there and others moved around alot as there was no place for them .. but they were not welcome in IT so it took a few generations at least before any went back there ,,usually ended up in TX or AR or MO.! you can varify! and ross stole those lands too
you can verify it yourself!
I do not have time to go to Ohio to varify it myself, I am after bigger fish..
these same are the ones related to Shoeboots and his sisters offspring and all the ridge relations.. and those who claim “indian princesses ” are most likely my closest relations as in anyones book Ollie and Nancy moytoy would be considered as such in any other place in the world .. besides here now .
not only that these tales persisted because they were all owed money for farms from GA and in IT reserves , stole by both the cherokee nation (ross)and the US government!
you can varify it yourself! and most old cherokee were discussed at even this subject and very angry about it all.
