Thanks for the response. I have searched most of the records at the Alleghany Co. court house and the AHGS trying to find a history of my ancestors that were in the Boiling Springs District prior to 1800. In 1800 the area was in Boterourt County and Fincastle CH didn't provide any records either.
Church records may be the answer. If your aunt could guide me to any old church records it would be greatly appreciated.
Isaac N. Leighton that married Sarah Adams, in Botetourt Co. and John Leighton and wife Elizabeth were two individuals that were there in the 1850 Census.
Francis M. Leighton, son of Isaac, that married Elizabeth Persinger was in charge of the Poor House on Potts Creek at one time,
