Genealogy - September, 1986

Issue: September, 1986

Dear Mountain Laurel,
Thanks so much for such a refreshing bit of sunshine once a month. I'm looking for some information from some of your readers about my grandmother, Nancy (Johnson) Treadway. She married Robert H. Treadway in the early 1890's. They had one daughter and four sons - Annie, Ellison, Andrew, James and my father Garfield.

Nancy died when all her children were quite young. They were born at Barnard Corner. I think the French Broad River is very near there. Broad River is very near there. Somehow Nancy also went by another last name before she married at this time I cannot remember what it was. I would be forever grateful for any information I could get.

[Dear Editor;]
I would like to learn something about my grandmother's people who I was told was from Meadows of Dan or Vesta, Virginia. I don't know, but I think some of her people still live in Vesta. She was Nancy Jane Clifton, born May 21, 1843 and died the 7th of March, 1904. I never knew her as I was born Dec. 1903. She was the daughter of Euwel and Ruth Clifton. Does anyone know who their parents were? They had 10 children.

Thank you so much.

[Dear Editor;]
I am seeking information on the following people - Jesse and Anna Hubbard (Anna's maiden name not know) who lived in the Woolwine area in the early 1800's. Also would like to know about their son John who married Mary Brammer. Would like to know about Jonathan William Hubbard who married Sara Luvina Dillion. I am especially interested in finding information on he or her family. And need to know about David McAlexander and wife Mary, maiden name not known. Their daughter Melia Jane McAlexander married Columbus Reid Hubbard. In addition to Melia Jane, they had a daughter name Isabel, and sons; Zack, Willie, Amos, Bunyan, and Jesse that I know of.
