Share/Exchange Info on Family Names

Very interested in sharing/exchanging information on the listed families, who lived in both Cabell Co and Lincoln Co.
My info:

Margaret J McCallister b 1837 Cabell Co?(d/o Issac and Rebecca Erwin McCallister) m 1) Male/name? Haskins b OH. Lived in Ark., unable to locate any records there. Three children, possible 4th - all but one born in AR:

1)William "Bernie" Haskins b 1863 ARK m Lenora Staley, returned to Arkansas after 1880 , had 8 children; Lenora died prior to 1898?, Bernie returned to Cabell/Lincoln Co. He died 1903, leaving 8 children ages 2-14 to be raised by his half-sisters (see below). One child was my grandmother Maude Lee Haskins b 1889 who married Squire Levi Webb, s/o James and Belzora Southard/Sutherd Webb...s/o James and Lois Bagley Webb...s/o James and Elizabeth Billups Webb.

2) Emmer S Haskins b 1866 m Stephen Thacker b 1842 d 1902(m 1) Lucinda K Williams, 2) Elizabeth "Lizzie" Dixon). Emmer and Stephen had six children. After Stephen's death, Emmer married McClennan Callihan.

3) Charlie A Haskins b 1871 Gallia Co, OH d 1954 m Anna Wagner buried Enon Cemetery. Long and confusing story about Charlie, his *real* father, Margaret's marriage to "Male" Haskins, who was said to be a bigamist when he married Margaret.

4) Possibly another Haskins son - no info, just family tidbits.

Margaret J McCallister married 2) 1872 Gallia Co OH Jeremiah Gothard b abt 1825, widower w/at least 4 children from previous marriage to Sarah Rice. Jerry and Margaret had 3 daughters all born and married in Cabell Co, WV:

1) Alice b abt 1872 married Ulysses Grant Bledsoe
2) Hattie b 1874 married Ira Bias
3) Essie b 1876 married Charles Poindexter "Deck" Rousey

The above three women were half-sisters to Wm Bernie Haskins and helped raise his children after he died.

Have info on Margaret's McCallister line back to early 1700's in VA. Have lots of Webb information and knowledge. Have names/dates for many of the Rousey/Bledsoe connections, but all info is new to me obtained on recent trip to Cabell/Lincoln Co. Desperately need Staley & early Haskins info. Would love to exchange/share info with others from related lines as mentioned above.

Hi Maryellen:

Thanks so much for the response. What time period is your John Staley from? Below is what I believe to be my Lenora Staley's family from the 1870 Cabell Co annotated census. I'm also in touch with a descendent of the child Lushcian (Lucian).

¶CENSUS: 1870 Wayne Co, WV
#149-149 STALEY
Stephen age 58 VA F.H. (??not sure what F.H. means)
Ann (a H) age 34 VA K.H. ??
Julian age 14 OH F.H. ??
Lushcian age 12 OH
Massella (m) age 9 OH
Butler age 7 OH
Nora age 5 OH***Believe this may be my Lenora
Julia age 3 OH
Eddie age 9 mth WV b August

I believe, if allied family patterns hold true, that all the children (except last one) were born in Gallia Co OH (if not, then in Lawrence Co. So, I need to find the 1860 Gallia Co Census and a birth record for *Nora*.

The Stephen above is said to be the son of Stephen Staley and Mary Peyton. Other children of that marriage: Jacob, Josphe, Elisha, Barbery (?Barbara), Andrew T, Hester, Hannah, Peyton, and several others. Does your John descend from on of those sons? And what are your Thacker connections. Look forward to talking with you.

My husband's family came from Cabell Co. I have info on the Staley family from Prichard, WV area. Don't know if they are related to the ones you are looking for. They come down from the John Staley family. Would be glad to help if I can.

Stephen Staley, & descendents

Hi Maryellen:
YES....Elisha and Mary definitely do fit siblings of Peyton. Below is brief outline from census info, some family knowledge, a friend who also descends from Stephen & Mary. **I need to prove that Lenora (below) is the 5 yrs old Nora from 1870 census....and need to prove her marriage to Wm. Bernie Haskins. Marriage most likely OH, or AR..although could be WV, but zero in Cabell & Wayne.
All help welcome; glad to share.

I believe all the names above will fit in the Peyton Staley file. They were all located in the Cabell Co. area at one time. My husband's grandfather was John Staley, a direct descendant of Peyton Staley. Would be glad to share info with you. I have an Elisha Ranuel Staley listed born in 1834. Mary Staley b. Mar. 19 1837. Do these names fit??

Stailey, Mc Callister

Hi Linda:

The only reference I have for a Hensly/McCallister connection is one I picked up while surfing the net.

Seems a Cynthia McCallister met up with a Mr. Hensley. The result was a son named Jason Rice McCallister. But Cynthia and Mr. Hensley did not marry.

I have no further information on this line. If you want to pursue, this is the URL: (

Good Luck,

James Hensley

Hi Michele:

Yes, Cynthia McCallister was the 2nd wife of Richard McCallister, Jr. They married in Cabell County, VA shortly after his return from Arkansas in 1857, where he & many of his married children & their familes went in 1854. Many returned to Cabell along with Richard. A few stayed, including Isaac Preston McCallister, my ggg-grandfather.

If you follow this line, would very much like to exchange information. Tried sending you an e-mail...but AOL says *not an AOL subscriber*.
