I am seeking descendants of the following Carroll/Grayson, VA, couple:

James Melton, b. Jan 7, 1832, d. Jul 3, 1913 married on Feb. 12, 1863 to
Mary Ann Spence, b. Mar 15, 1839, d. May 7, 1909

James' parents: William Richardson Melton and Sarah Bedsaul
Mary Ann's parents: Hale Spence and Sally (Sarah) McGrady

James and Mary Ann had the following known children born in Carroll County, VA:

1) Estill Amid Melton, b. 1867
2) Lavinna Melton, b. Feb 1869, married Noah Hawks on Dec 23, 1885
3) Luemma Melton, b. Mar 1871, d. Jul 1946 - married Daniel Hawks on Feb. 12, 1893
4) Arabel Melton, b. 1872

Luemma was my grandmother. If you have any connection to this family, I would be most happy to hear from you.
