This one seems to be messed up royally in Rootsweb with James marrying Margaret/Alcey Linville/Linvall and marrying a Rodgers at the same timeframe with children born during same timeframe...

A second marriage to an Angeline Rogers is given with childrens’ birthdates conflicting with those of Margaret/Alcey Linville; this seems to be a persistent problem in the Rootsweb entries for this family!/// 1870c, Clay Co KY, Div. 32, Pct. 3: 149/149: FELTY, James, 49, VA; Margret, 43, VA; John, 20, VA; Polly, 17, KY; Louisa, 15, KY; Daniel, 12, KY; Francis (m), 2, KY/// IBID., HH150/150: FELTY, George, 24, VA; Martha, 20, KY/// 1880c, Bull Skin, Clay Co KY: FELTY, James, 57, VA/VA/VA; Margaret, 52, VA/VA/VA; Frances, dau., 11, KY/VA/VA/VA

I do not have much on yours (interested primarily in female surnames); however, appears I have confused Georges myself here as this George in Clay Co KY is the 3 year old George s/o James and Margaret/Alcey (1850c, WCV)... Do you have a lot on this family? Jack
