My name is James Vannetter. I am looking for any information on Thomas Wiley. He was married in 1778 to Jenny Sellards in Walker's Creek, Bland Co., VA. He died in 1810 in Tom's Creek, KY. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

My grandfather was Hugh Thomas Wiley of Crozet Virginia. He had a sister named Nan. His wife was mabel Patterson. He also had one son named Thomas Edward Wiley of Crozet Va. who is still alive. Also two daughters one deceased ,June, one alive ,Beirne Trunzo, Crozet Va. I know nothing of his parents. Hopefully this has helped.

My g-grandmother Nancy Elin (Wiley) Broughman (she married Francis Roscoe Broughman)is Jenny (Sellards) Wiley's
grand-daughter. That would make Jenny my g-g-g-grandmother. I too have just begun researching this line. If I can help
further, email me.

James -

I am also related to Thomas Wiley who married
Jenny Sellards. I visited their grave two years ago. It is in Lawrence Co. I think. There was a sign that appeared to be place on the main road that told you to turn to see Jenny Wiley's Grave. It wasn't far . You park at the bottom of a hill and walk up to the grave but you pass two other cemeteries on the way up.

All I ever read says Thomas was from Ireland. If I ever Pass thru that section of KY on any day but a weekend I wouldd like to do more searching .

I suppose you have the story of Jenny Wiley's escape from the indians. If not I would be happy to send it to you.

I have a Thomas Wiley born in Scotland in 1731. He later came to Virginia. His son served the colonies with Washington in the Revolution. A direct descendent of him was Edward Wiley, great grandfathr of Nathan E. Wiley (my great great grandfather). He settled in Indiana. Let me know if this sounds as if it is the correct line. Thanks!

I have a Edward Wiley listed as father of John wiley in Pope County Ill. John is my gr-gr- grandfather.For Johhns mother it just says Christy. John was 52 years at the marriage date dec 1881 so Edward would have been born at least prior to 1860? Any imformation on this line would be apprec.
Thanks Nancy
