James Moles b. 1810 Kanawha Co. VA d. February 11, 1891 Jackson Co. IA buried M. E. Church Cemetery, Jackson Co., IA, married Sarah Wyatt December 18, 1834 Kanawha Co. VA b.abt 1816 Kanawha Co. VA, died Jackson Co. IA

James is listed in the Kanawha Co. Census for 1850 and 1860 then in 1870 he is found in Jackson Co. IA. His father was Edward Moles and Martha Unknown, who were born in Va and died in Kanawha Co. VA.

I believe that Edward and Martha Moles had a daughter Mary Moles that married Nathaniel White since Edward and Mary Moles were the only Moles in Kanawha Co. but that is not proven and still open for speculation.

I am descendant from Nathaniel White and Mary Moles. They had 10 children. (Woodford, Bluford, Barsheba, Samuel, Theodoscia, Claiborne, Monterville, Anna, and Louise Elizabeth White-the ten one is not known) For what reason we don't know, Edward and Mary died around 1844, leaving many orphan children. Most of these children went to live with older siblings. Me and other researchers have been tracting down all of our lost White chidren for a long time.

Barsheba White married Eli Martin and in 1850 are found in Indiana with siblings, Anna and Monterville. This family were in Jackson Co. IA in 1860, and Cass Co. in 1880. Anna and Claiborn each married and moved with their families to Lemhi Idaho were they both died with in days of each other Lemhi Co. 1901.

Woodford stayed in VA/WV and died there. Bluford (my direct line) died VA 1849 thypoid fever. Lousia Ann also stayed in WV. Samuel White who was living with his brother Woodford in 1850, shows up with his family in 1860 Jackson Co. IA living next to his other brothers and sisters. Claiborne married and moved to Nebraska. Theodocia White married Samuel K. Lewis and they stayed in WV until after 1860 because in 1870 they too are in Jackson Co. IA with some of the other families. That same time, James Moles who were neighbors of Samuel Lewis also left WV and came to Jackson Co. IA and found again neighbors of Samuel and Theodoscia.

Families tend to migrate together and this helps supports the theropy that James Moles was an Uncle or cousin to the rest of the Whites children. The death certificate for Samuel H. White and Barsheba White Martin list Nathaniel and Mary Moles as their parents.

As for the Dare part of Virginia's name, sounds like all the George Washington and Benjamin Franklins that children were named back then. Virginia was the only daughter that was born in Iowa.

Hopes this helps, if only to give an explaination on why James moved to Iowa. 1860 was starting the civil war and may be they wanted to move far from away from it.

Thanks Janet
