Hi, I'm looking for information on Thomas Twidwell who was born 1790 in Halifax, Virginia (he married a Mary "Polly" Wayman Mar 5 1815 in Rowan, North Carolina). I've been told that Thomas' father was George Twidwell (who died when his son was still a baby, Thomas was raised I been told by his grandfather William Twidwell who was married to a Mary Sampson). The latter two are the ones I am looking for information on mainly. When did George Twidwell died? He was born 1765 in USA (not sure if he was born in Virginia but good chances are he was), he married a Betsey Williams in 1800 (she was born in 1770 in USA, guessing Virginia). Also, where was George's father, William, born? I have a date of 1740 in USA for him but the place I don't, don't have a death date for him or his son either and am looking for those as well. William married a Mary Sampson who was born 1745 (haven't been able to find her place of birth either).

Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Thomas Twidwell is my great-great-great-great grandfather, the father of William Snoddy Twidwell (b. 1822 in Rowan, North Carolina - d. June 13 1909) who is the father of Andrew J. Twidwell (b. 1844 - d. Sep 4 1909) who is the father of my great grandmother Maude Twidwell (b. Jan 28 1883 - d. Jan 7 1940)

Hello. I have been doing research on this family for over 40 yrs. Most of this research has been'hands on' in VA numerous times and so I have a ton of info. I am in the process of publishing a book featuring this research. Apparently there has been a lot of confusion over who Thomas's father was and so it appears people got a 'Sr' and a 'Jr' mixed up (easy to do). If you like, e-mail me at
