I am deceded from Obadiah Byous who married Jane Shields.
Really need to know more about the family. Do you know when he was in Fulton Co. I have his death record and know he married Jane by the marriage record. He died and she moved to Neb. with her son Joseph and his wife Isabelle, then moved in with her daughter and son in law, Kingery.
There were Kingery's in Va. also but don't know if they are related either. Can you tell me what is in the Bible?
There are more than one Obadiah's, and it's hard to follow.
Joseph had a daughter Eva Beatrice, who married a Grant Ward, had a son Elmer who was my grandpa. I went to Fulton Co. but they were of little help. Seems the parents were maybe dead and he was under legal gaurdianship, maybe it was this Eliz. and Ray family.
Hope to hear from you. Ruthann
