Are you still doing Botetourt County lookups? If so, I am hoping you might be able to look up the marriage of John Stair (although I have heard it might be listed as "Starr") and Elizabeth Lanius. They supposedly married in Botetourt Co. 9/22/1814.

Would the marriage record have any parents names listed?

I am also looking for any Stair children born to this couple. I believe my ancestor, Catherine Hester Ann Stair, b. 10/3/1817 in Fincastle, was one of their children, possibly a brother William?

It looks like John Stair returned to PA without Elizabeth, so I wonder if there is a death record for her. I have looked in some of the cemetery databases, but have not found her name listed in any so far.

Please let me know if there is any way you can help me out with any or all of these questions.
Thank you very much,
