Many members have moved on to other places including, Virginia, Tennessee, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Washington, D. C., New York, and Pennsylvania, but are still important to the story of the community.
If you would like to contribute information or have pictures of members of these families please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Many documents and pictures have already been collected for this important project. Don’t miss your chance to add your part to the story!
I recognize many of the surnames you mentioned to be found in my area, the Miami Valley of west central Ohio from the 1820's forward. My research which started as a "family" genealogy soon broadened to a community, then a sectional genealogy as so many of these surnames connected in some way to my family lines.
The surnames mentioned that I may be able to help you with that migrated to this area of Ohio are: Archer, Nickens, Weaver, Manly, Melton, Bizzell, Chavis, Collins, Wiggins, Robbins, Bass, Newsome, Scott and Walden. No pictures, but let us know what type(s) of information/documents I may have that would be of interest to you.
