I'm looking for info on my grandfather, John Thomas Durham, who married Rosanah VanZant, from VA. They had 11 children, I believe, one of which was my dad, Rathiel Walker Durham. Anybody have any info?

By any chance would the name Rosaanah be Rosa Bell VanZant? My e-mail address: I am leaving for Jackson Co.,Ky. this Saturday -May 6th.

Yes, actually, her name was "Rasanah Vanzant," born August 22, 1885 in Scott County, Virginia to Isaac and Phebe Vanzant. I have a copy of the "birty certificate" but it doesn't indicate Phebe's maiden name or either of their places of birth. What do you know about that?? Thanks very much.

I read your posting, and I am also looking for info on a John Thomas Durham. Was wondering if you had run across my John Thomas Durham in your research. John Thomas Durham married in 1896 to Martha Duncan in Appomattox county, VA. On the marriage cert. it says that he was divorced. I have heard from Durham family members that he was married before and had children from a previous marriage. John Thomas' marriage cert. says that he was born in Baltimore MD, his parents were Thomas and Eliza Durham.
Ring any bells?
