My ancestor. John Marr, was born in Amherst County VA in 1796. His son, Peter Nicholas, my g-g-grandfather, b. August 4th, 1792 in Amherst County VA, d. December 13, 1865 in Hickman, Kentucky. By his first wife Anne Goodhue Hinton, he had 7 children: Clarka, Robert, George, Harriett, Susan, Mary and John. By his second wife, Elizabeth Margaret Buck, he had 4 children: Daniel, Nolen, Helen and Nicholas, my great grandfather. Nicholas Marr died in Joplin, MO about 1931. The Marr name is Scottish, and the clan is from Aberdeen, Scottland. They backed Bonnie Prince Charley at Culloden, and had to flee. One family landed in CT. The other in Virginia. Contact me if you would like more info. cousin Nancy

Peter Nicholas Marr was my g-g-grandfather vis his son Nicholas Marr, by then a resident of Joplin, MO. who married Lillian Mae Avery. Peter Nicholas Marr was married twice, first to Anne Goodhue Clinton, by whom he had 7 children, and second to Elizabeth Margaret Buck, by whom he also had 7 children, among them my g-g-grandfather. From who do you descend? And how extensive are your records? I have children's names and some dates, but little more. Also, do you have info on Peter Nicholas' wife's familys or the families of John Marr's wife? Love to hear from you. Cousin Nancy

I now see what you were talking about - I don't know how I sent you this originally but I did send one to Diane Shepard (Earnshaw) as she had an Eckel in her name. I see that she wrote you to find out about your g-g-grandmother, probably to help me.
