Kristy: I'm still digesting your first message, but here are a few things: My list also shows Manassa is the son of Jacob II (the George Michael reference came from Manassa's greatgrandson). Jacob II was first married to Mary, then to the widow Phillips (Margaret Ervine). You show Massasa was born at Dora, VA, but that's in Gilmer County where he finally settled. I show him born in Pocahontas with the rest of the clan. It does get confusing with all the same names, and the fact that, in the middle of all this, Pocahontas was formed from part of Pendleton. I can give you directions to the Wright Cemetery, but you must also include on your trip a visit to the cemetery at St. Michael's Church (named after Michael Wilfong, who donated the land) near Sugar Grove, Pendleton County, where the early Wilfongs are buried. The community there is called "Wilfong Town," since that's where they first settled. More later.

Husband of Mary Ellen Wilfong
