It is very kind of you to offer to help strangers with their VZ Co. research, and I completely understand if you don't have time for a request like mine. I've been trying for years to trace my mother's family tree and cannot get past her grandparents no matter where I look.

My grandparents were Charlie Clinton Simpson (son of Robert W. and Ella Caroline Batts Simpson - - found on the 1900 VZ census)and Millie R. (Richie/Richey?) Stepp (daughter of Richard Frank Stepp and Amanda M. Stepp - - found on the 1910 VZ Co. census). His family came to VZ from TN around 1899 and hers came from MS after 1900; they were married in VZ county in 1910. They had 7 children: Clarence (the oldest b. abt. 1911), Chester, Ralph, Leonard, Elsie, Ethel, and Ruby Simpson (the youngest b. 1932).

However, in addition to their immediate families, my mother remembers that there were aunts, uncles, and cousins, some of whom may have already been in VZ Co. before Charlie and Millie's families arrived. Are there any Stepps, Batts, or Simpsons listed in your books for the late 1800's to early 1900's? I can't tell you how grateful I would be for the tiniest clue.
