I went to high school with a colleen cross. Are you related to a cross family from Weirton, WV?
I have a good deal of information about my Hindman family in Brooke Co., WV. James Hindman h/o Mary Cross was born on their family farm near Cannonsburg, PA. His father was James Hindman who immagrated from Ireland sometime around 1780. James Sr. came with his brother John and possibly his brother Francis. James Sr. was to have met Mary McCully and gotten married in Lancaster, PA then moved to the farm near Cannonsburg. In 1795 James & Mary Cross Hindman along with their 5 sons moved to a farm in Brooke County, VA (WV). James's brother John also moved with them. They bought 202 acres along Tent Church Road along with Samuel Archer. They then divided the farm in half. Later Samuel sold out his interests in the farm to James Hindman's family. Samuel moved a little west closer to the Ohio River. The hillside he moved to has been named Archer Heights and is just south of Weirton WV. I haven't been able to connect my Hindman line with the Hindman's in Ireland. When I am able to I believe I'll be able to then connect these Hindman's with other Hindman families in the US.
As I said earlier James & Mary McCully Hindman had 5 sons. They were named John, Samuel, James, William & Francis. I descend from the line of Samuel. John owned and operated a grist mill in Holliday's Cove (Weirton). Samuel farmed. James Farmed but I don't have much on James other than the names of his children. William farmed, moved to Washington Co., OH then to Madison Co., Iowa where he died in Walnut Township, Madison Co., Iowa. Francis married Mary Litton, had 9 children, fought in the war of 1812, farmed the rest of his life and died in Brooke Co., VA (WV) in 1856. I have a good deal of information on John, Samuel, and William but not on Francis & William. Are you interested in more information.
I didn't receive notice that you had replied to my post or I would have gotten back to you sooner.
