My branch of the Race family can be traced back to Andrew Race b. 1795-in Maryland. He married Mary Haines. His sons were William and Archibald. I believe Archibald (my g-g grandfather) was named after Archibald Elson who was married to Emily Martha Haines. Mary said she was born in PA. Andrew and Mary were married in VA which is now WV--not sure where. We next pick them up in Ohio. Archibald stated in his Civil War Pension papers he was born in Washington Co. OH. The only other Race I found there was a John Race. There may also have been a brother William. Andrew's son William named a son Andrew too. Andrew, Sr. lived in Coshocton, OH, then Peoria Co., IL before coming to Iowa. He last appeared in an 1862 tax record. His wife Mary went back to Illinois to live with her children there. Any help would be appreciated. Especially in the VA/WV area.
