IM LOOKING FOR SOME INFORMATION CONCERNING THE ERSKINE FAMILY OF MONROE CO. W.VA.. IM UP AGAINST BRICKWALL ON THIS FAMILY TOO....I know that there were other Erskines living in Monroe Co.but this one group i cant find anything on what so ever.IM UP AGAINST BRICKWALL ON THIS FAMILY TOO....

here is list of there Childern according to the 1850 census for Monroe Co. W.VA
Nancy Erskine
Mary Erskine
Archibald M.Erskine
Alexander Erskine
Isabel Erskine
Catherine Erskine

This family appears on the 1860 census for Monroe Co. too.... I know that ARchibald fought in the war and which unit he fought in but thats about it..I dnt have clue as too what happen too this family after the war... They seem to have disappear completely..
This is what i have on them so far which isnt much....
I think that Elizabeth Egnor mother was Mary <polly> Egner who appears in 1830 census with one daughter that would be the right age for this Elizabeth.. There was also Archibald Egnor living next door too these two ladies in 1830.. He married a Lahoma Massey in 1832 in Monroe Co.I believe that he was her brother... But cant prove it...

Can anybody out there help me with this family....Any help at all would be appericated..... Thanks..
