Backhouse Family Genealogy Forum
By now you may have solved the Backhouse - Brown connection mentioned below. My grandmother was Alda Brown born in Nicholas County, WVA and of course related to the folks mentioned below. Before she died she turned me on to a book written by her uncle Mat Brown, "The History of Nicholas County WVA" which is no longer in print but available on file from LDS. I have a printout of it, and uncle Mat knew a genealogy nut would be born into the family, because he gives so much history of the pioneer families in what became Nicholas County. He has over a page devoted to the Backhouse pioneers.
You may already know about the book, but thought I'd mention it. If I can help you out, be glad to. I also have printouts of allot of marriage and birth records from Nicholas County from the good old days before Internet research.
Let me know if I can help.
