My new E-Mail address

My new E-Mail address is:

I've been working on the ROYSE Family of Adair Co., KY. My connection "might be" the Sally ROICE who md. James PAGE in Cumberland Co., KY on 11 Aug 1816.

I think that her parents were Solomon ROYSE and his 2nd wife Sarah STOTTS who lived in Adair Co. (next to Cumberland). There is no other ROYSE/ROICE family close by to be her parents.

Solomon ROYSE died in 1858 in Adair Co., KY leaving a will which does not name a daughter, Sarah. Solomon and Sarah were md. in 1796, but their eldest child (William ROYSE) was b. in 1799. There was time for a daughter (Sarah) to be born before William, but she might not have been named in the will because she had died. I Sarah PAGE died ca. 1830-1834 and I "think" that she may have been an older child born of Solomon and Sarah's marriage.....but I cannot prove it!!!!

Does anyone know of an old ROYSE Family Bible or other record that might show this daughter? I really need help on this.

Dolores in CA
