I am searching for information about my great grandparents who were most likely from Wood Co. I got thier names from my grandparents SSDI records.

THey are..
Lawrence Butler STEPHENS m. Mary RANSBOTTOM.
Perviance COLLINS m. Rachel DEEM

All should have been born around 1880 - 1890.

My father can't remember a lot about them except that they were all dead by 1951 - 1952 when he was in the Navy.

Thanks for any help.

Thanks for the info. Are your related to these families? I'm trying to find someone who could point me in the right direction in my searches here. I've got a couple generations back for Ransbottom but nothing for Stephens.

Is anyone researching the Collins line that came to Wood Co from Rappahannock Co,VA. I am looking for info on Robert Collins born in the early 1800's with possibly a sister named Mary Ann Collins. She was born 7/13/1817 VA,married Enoch Leach 12/23/1835 In Rappahannock Co,Va. She died 11/02/1880 and was buried at the Mt Zion Cem, in Calhoun Co.
Any leads would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have the Collins family in my line. Supposedly it starts with Rupert Collins married to Tecamapase, they had a daughter named Jane Collins born about 1763 in WV, she married Lewis Full, and they had a daughter Mary Ann Full born in 1827, she married Michael S. Anderson. I have doubts about this line since I have read so much history on Tecumapase.

I'm sure I have info you are looking for. The Collins, Postlewait and Deem surnames are in my family, all of which were in Wood County at one time. Please contact me.

Lawrence (LARANCE, according to the family Bible) Butler STEPHENS was my mother's uncle. In speaking with mother today, she confirmed that the name was pronounced Lawrence. He was born 18 Sept 1872 in Wood County, West Virginia, married on 1 Apr 1899, and died 10 Jan 1943. Mother could not remember the name of Uncle Butler's wife.

Hope this helps.

Our mutual great-grandparents, i.e. Uncle Butler's parents, were Henry L. STEPHENS, born 12 May 1826 in Frederick County, VA and Mary E. PHELPS, born 17 Nov 1835. Their children were:
Violet R. (b & d 1853,in Wood County)
Marion B. (b. 1854, d. 1856, in Clark Co., (W)Va)
John F. (b. 1854 in Clark Co., d. 1921
George R. (b. & d. 1857, Carol Co., MO)
Missoura Virginia (b. 1858, Lafayette Co., MO, d. 1901)
Mary E. (b. & d. 1860, Wood Co., (W)Va)
Julia C (or McC) (b. 1861 in Wood Co, d. 1891)
Maud M. (b. 1864, d. 1866 in Wood Co.)
Anna (Annie G.) (b. & d. 1866, in Wood Co.)
Charles W. (b. 1867 in Wood Co., d. 1919

Mark, I don't have your Deem line in my database. Could you provide me your line for inclusion into my Deem lineage? I am also related to the Deem family of Wood Co.
