I have Eli Vanover b. 7-4-1829 in Ashe Co., NC s/o Cornelius III Vanover and Sarah Cooley Hill. Eli married 3-2-1848 Letcher Co., KY to Ollie Mullins b. 2-5-1832 Holly Creek (now Clintwood), Russell (now Dickenson) Co., VA. I only have one child listed for Eli and Ollie and that is Maranda b. 2-12-1871. Apparently Maranda had a son out of wedlock. His name was Ralph Vanover b. 9-16-1890 Dickenson Co., VA d. 12-31-1989 Clintwood, Dickenson Co., VA m. 11-9-1909 Clintwood, Dickenson Co., VA to Daisy Fleming b. 2-17-1887 Dickenson Co., VA. I have 2 children listed for Ralph and Daisy and they are, Veldon Scott Vanover b. 3-27-1911 Dickenson Co., VA d. 4-10-1977 Clintwood, Dickenson Co., VA m. 6-7-1935 Clintwood to Italy Rife b. 1916 Dickenson Co., VA and an unidentified daughter Vanover who married an unidentified male Stanley. Now, I have a question...Could this unidentified daughter be the mother of Ralph and Carter Stanley of the Stanley Brothers Bluegrass Music fame? I am basing her age somewhere around her brother's and this would surely make her old enough to have these sons. And with the naming pattern of the era, it would fit that she would name one of her son's after her father, Ralph. Any ideas? Anyone? I can also be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
