Researching Thompson, Miller.Weaver, Simmons, Modesitts, Byrnes, Bartlett,, Elliott, Arnold


Looking for ancestors,descendants and history of great great grandmother Louisa Jane Thompson Modesitt, sometimes seen as Julia.
LDS site :
Father: Benjamin Thompson b: ABT 1798 PARENTS NOT LISTED
Mother: Catherine Miller b: 14 APR 1801 in Rappahannock Co., VA
Married: 11 SEP 1820 in Shenandoah Co., VA

ID: I42278
* Name: Catherine Miller
* Sex: F
* Birth: 14 APR 1801 in Rappahannock Co., VA
* Birth: 1801 in VA
* Birth: 1802 in VA
* Birth: 1804 in VA
* Death: 21 DEC 1876 in Luray, Page Co., VA

My great great grandfather was James William Modisette (or Modesitt), born 1817 who married Louisa Jane Thompson born 1821. Their daughter, Ella Modesitt b. 1850 , married Lewis McHenry Weaver b. 1846 (parents James William Weaver and Christina A. Simmons)
Great great great grandfather was James Modesitt born 1787 in Virginia. who married Lucy Marye around 1815 in Page Co. VA.
Ella and Lewis married on Nov. 17, 1872 in Luray, VA. They are my grandparents.
Ella had a brother James W. Modesitt. who married Katie Lankford and I have to be careful in my research to get the correct James W. Modesitt.
Ella and Lewis Weaver had 3 children Robert Lewis Weaver ,Eugene Robert Weaver, and Annie Louise Weaver, my grandmother. Ella Modesitt Weaver died abt 1888 and her husband Lewis McHenry Weaver died abt 1890 so grandmother was brought up by the Groves (Dr. Birnam Grove, wife Bessie??) in the Luray area.
Grandmother married George Harmon Elliott (parents John Stephenson Elliott and Roberta V. Arnold).

Any info or leads greatly appreciated.
