1812  -April 15: (Berkley Co, VA)

An indenture was made in Berkley Co., VA between Charity Job, Thomas Rees Sr, Paul Sellars and his wife Sarah on one part and Elisha Boyd of the Town of Martinsburg.  For the sum of $310.63 a tract of land belonging to the late Thomas Job which included 150 acres, two roads, all houses, buildings, water courses, and other appurtenances were transferred to Elisha Boyd.  (Note:  Paul and Sarah Sellars were the son-in-law and daugther to Charity Job, and it is probably that Thomas Rees Sr was father-in-law to Charity)

Berkeley Co., West Va. Listers,

I need some  help with finding the ancestors of Lena Freeze born in October
1898, Berkeley Co., West Va.   She was the daughter of  Charles Hamilton
FREEZE and Ostella (Stella or Azelia) SELLERS.

Lena married my grandfather Joseph SNYDER Februarey 18, 1920 in
Martinsburg,
Berkeley Co., West Va.    She had been raised in the household of Robert S
NOLL and Rose Ann WILSON of Tomahawk area of Berkeley Co., West Va.  It is
believed that she was a ward of the County and placed with the Noll family
due to the loss of her parents.

Thanks

Bob Longbottom
Mogadore, Ohio

Any help or clues where to look will be appreciated.
