Karen, I'm sorry. I have just returned from Europe, and didn't realize that has taken over and completely revamped Rootsweb (just as "" has taken over GenForum). I've looked for 20-30 minutes and can't find anything. Maybe the information is "free" because it's so well hidden. I really don't have the patience to figure out where it might be (if it's still there!). The data were taken from old publications, those of Landon Bell, for instance, and could be accessed by state and county, within which one could search for a surname or church or whatever, like: "USGENWEB CNIDR Isearch-cgi 1.20.06 (File: lune1780.txt) Lunenburg County, Virginia Publick Claims 1780-1784" or "USGENWEB CNIDR Isearch-cgi 1.20.06 (File: bell9.txt) Abstracts of Marriage Bonds: Ministers’ Returns. p. 390 THE OLD FREE STATE
Name of Husband Name of Wife Name of Surety
William Degraffenreidt Elizabeth Robertson Joseph Jeter Date 12/2/1772"

I've printed your questions and will keep them in mind if I'm searching on the Web. Christopher VI's plantation was on the James River in Virginia. Tscharner was in Lunenburg Co. VA The names of the counties have changed from time to time. Baker, Tscharner's son, was in Guilford Co., NC (which earlier was Rowan Co., later became Guilford Co., & still later Rockingham Co., NC). Tscharner was well-to-do and no doubt had friends and family living with him from time to time. I don't have the Cavendish name in my database, but that doesn't mean anything. I'm a descendant of Baker, so mostly I focus on his line.

The de Graffenried Family History by Thomas P. de G. is available as a reprint from some place like "The Genealogical Publishing Co." You can find it on the Web or search the messages here in GenForum for it.
