Seeking information on Sarah Anne Creel, who married John Wellington Towles in Culpeper, VA in 1847 and moved to WV in the 1850's.. Possibly, her father was Matthew Creel who lived in Taylor County, WV. in the late 1800's.

Trying to expand my research off the main family line.

Thanks for any assistance.

I would concur that her father was Matthew Creel, b1803 in Culpeper Co., VA, died 2-15-1870 in Pruntytown, WV. Her mother was Anna Adams, c1803 VA, d10-7-1834 in Culpeper Co. They were married 9-16-1824 in Fauquier Co., VA.
Children -
Charles William, b6-17-1826
Sarah Ann, b4-17-1829
James Franklin, b5-29-1831
Matthew Sudson, b8-18-1833
Charles lived in Taylor Co., WV, d4-15-1856.
Sarah married John Towles in Culpeper Co., VA, in September of 1847(that's all I have on her)
James moved to Iowa and then Colorado, where he died in Arriba, CO, 5-18-1920. He's buried in Iowa.
Matthew moved to Iowa and then Ray Co., MO, where he died in 1914. He named his first daughter Sarah.
