South Boston, VA. caught my eye, my father was born in SB, his father was Isaac Coles Spragins,Sr.b.1869,d.1929, whose mother was Eliza Carrington Coles,b 1841, d.1923,whose father was Isaac C. Coles, b.1816, d.1883. In this line I go back to a Walter Coles, b.1680 in Ireland, d.(?) in VA.
I have never heard of those you mention, If this is any help let me know and I might be able to answer further questions. Good Luck.

I am interested in finding info about my family: My great great grandparents are:

James Luther White ...Born Feb. 1844 married to Helena Delia Turner....Born March 1849 Their children; Florence E., Charles J., Richard M. James L. jr.

their parents are: William White...born Rhode Island and Martha Hyde Underhill/or Martha Wright/or Martha Underhill
born in New York.

Nathan Turner and Carmelia Coles are the parents of Helena/Helen. Would appreciate any help...lines are long and could use a few shortcuts to narrow down search...such as name changes, a relative out there would be great.
