Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
I had not posted the request for information, but am glad to see it. I do have some more information on Nicholas Messinger (b. 1790), He lived, died, and was buried on Falls Creek (on maps as "Falls Branch"), in Lincoln County. (Lincoln County was once part of Cabell County; the Messinger farm has one border along the Cabell County line). This is now in WV, of course. Nicholas is buried on the Messinger family cemetery on the farm, together with his wife (whose grave is unmarked). There are several of his descendants who are also buried in that cemetery, including my direct line, which includes Nicholas and Mary's son, George Washington Messinger, his son George Washington Messinger (my grandfather), and my father, Wendell.
