Zadoc Canterbury, first of the name here, was born in Monroe County, Virginia. There he married Miss Marcina Snow, about year 1840; to them were born one son and one daughter, their names, Caroline and John D.

Zadoc, with his wife, Marcina and thier two children above named, came to McKnowns Creek of Pocatalico about the year 1859, acquired a tract of land and made a good home half mile east of Walton. The daughter, Caroline, born in Monroe Co., Va, September 25, 1843, married Frederick Gandee, of Gandeeville. See name Gandee.

John D Canterbury, son of Zadoc and Marcena, married Miss Martha Jane Hivley, on 29th day of August 1870. they made their permanent home on or near the old Canterbury land.

There were other Canterburys, but I do not know their antecedents, nor their family relations.

Calvin Canterbury married Miss Mary Jane Ellison, a daughter of Samuel Ellison; made a home here and brought up the following children: Ohley, "Oley", who married Bertha, daughter of Elijah Igo, of Geary District; Ohley and Bertha have their farm home on Cotton Tree. Ballard Canterbury, son of Calvin and wife, lives in Kentucky, and another son, John Canterbury, lives in Logan County, West Virginia.
