I'm hoping that someone here might be able to help me....I am so very stuck! I'll try to make a long story short. I have a G.G.GF that I just can't figure out. Fielding W. Smith, and his death record is in Randolph co. WV. It says that his father's name was Jos. and he was born in VA abt 11 March 1858, his date of death was 16 May 1939. This doesn't help much either...his wife is supposed to be Sarah J. Calhoun (that is what I keep finding in other records). Her death record (also in Randolph)says she was born in Pendleton co. abt. 28 July 1854 and that her maiden name was Vance. Her date of death 15 Oct. 1936. The death record info was given by one of their daughters. Anyway the problem I have is that I can not move forward until I figure her out. Two of their children were supposed to have been born in Highland VA: Ernest abt 1881, and Ada Lou or Lou Ada abt 1882 It might help if there is any record of her maiden name on their birth records.
I would be so grateful for any help you could offer.
