Thomas/James VA>OH circa 1820

I am seeking information on the families of Thomas and James McAboy. They are brothers, born in Dumfries, Prince William County, VA abt 1795.

Thomas, a physician/farmer, moved his family to Athens County, OH about 1815. About 1830, he moved to Meigs County, OH - just to the south of Athens.

James, a Baptist>Presbyterian minister and educator, also moved to Athens County, OH. Rev. McAboy was an early trustee for Ohio Unversity. Prior to his move to Athens, James lived in Wood County, VA (now WVa) and possibly NC. His travels as a cleric took him many places.
