Hi, I too am looking for my father's family. I have his parents as Jack and Nola Marie Coakley Burns of Webster county, WV. I have his father as William Jack Burns who came from VA (but the whole state was VA at that time!!) and was the first Justice of the Peace of Webster Co. ANY INFO at all will be greatly appreciated. William Jack Burns was married to a A. McCourt.

I really don't have any idea if there is any relationship there. I only know my father was born somewhere around white sulphur springs, don't know his parents name. I only remember his brothers Carl, Ambross, Ross and sister Ada (I believe married name Scott). I know Carl lived in Beckley but died in N.C. with one of his daughters. Ross had a son Jim. Ada had a daughter Helen Honaker whose daughter Mary Sue was Miss Beckley back in the 40's in the Miss West Virginia contest for Miss America. I think Helen and daughter's family live or have lived in North Carolina. Thats about all I have been able to find out so far. My family have all past away so I can't go to them for any genealogy information. If I find anything about your father being any relation, I will let you know. You can contact me at if any of this sounds familiar to you.

Classification: Query
I'm searching for Virginia Coakleys who are the same as West Va. Coakley, I feel sure. Everyone by that name eventually goes back to Ireland. I have done considerable research on the ancient ones of Ireland and England, have even written a book called They Came to Rockingham which includes their history to the 1500's and beyond. If you have early information to share would you contact me at P. O. Box 423, Forest, VA 24551 Thanks!
