I would like to find proof that my ancestor Elvira SAWYERS (abt 1823-?)was a daughter of John R. Sawyers (abt 1792-aft 1860)and Nancy G. JOHNSON (abt 1795-abt 1850-1860).
In 1840, John R. had land on the Williams River in Nicholas and was on the Nicholas census that year. In 1850 John R. was in the Nicholas County census. In 1860 he was in Sandrun, Webster Co. Had that part of Webster been in Nicholas before 1860?
Elvira was in Braxton in 1850 (with John L. CARPENTER and his wife Nancy PERRINE and listed as Alvira SIRES) and in 1860 (widow of Henry B. Martin KNIGHT, d. in Braxton (abt 1828-1855).
I will be in central WV at the end of the month. I would like to search for land and tax records, will and probate, etc. If anyone has an idea of the best place for me to start searching, I would appreciate it.
