Hello Shelly,
I noticed that Heinrich Betz b. 1852 in Kolb had children who were born in Messer: Peter, Frank, Henry Jacob b. 1871. His daughter Katherine was born in Selicka in 1792. I can find no Volga German village with that name. There?s a Selyanka or Frankreich on the wiesenseite (west side) of the Volga.

My ancestors settled in Messer, Russia about 50 miles south of Saratov in 1767. Other Betz families settled in Kolb about that time. Our family moved to Neu-Messer in 1863. I?ve long suspected that there were some connections between the Kolb and Messer and Neu-Messer Betz families.
Do you have any information that would be helpful?

Thanks,

Fred Betz

My great-great-great grandmothers maiden name was Margaret McQueen. She was born March 3, 1788 in Loudoun County, Virginia. She married Samuel George Pownall. She died in Ohio in 1844. I am working on my family tree and have not been able to continue with Margarets lineage. Do you have any knowledge of her?

I believe your geneology of James Brown to be incorrect. He was born around 1776 and moved to Bethel Township, Miami County, Ohio. He later died in Tazewell County, ILLINOIS. (Not Virginia). His son was Abram Brown and died in Noble County, Indiana. The Kirkham surname was carried on by several of his proven descendants. Somehow the two James Browns were confused at some point, by someone and this mistake carried on by dozens of Brown researchers.

Hello, I came across Gen. Joshua McQueen's grave site in Millville KY a couple years ago while exploring the distillery ruins .I currently live in CA but am from KY. I didn't see a picture of the site so i wasn't sure if you were aware of how beautiful and mysterious his resting place is. I haven't found a connection yet but a few names ring a bell going to do some research. Thanks for the research project, I really kind of enjoyed this,. :)
