Renick Family Genealogy Forum
I am the daughter of James Edgar Renick. His father was Elwin Boyd Renick ("Boy") who married a Sarah Mcleish. His father was James Edgar Renick who married Sarah Drennan. He also built a house on Panther Mountain in 1883.Last I heard it was still standing) I have copy of a photo of it with family and friends in front.( Vernon Pearson, Mansfield Harrah, and Tom Crookshanks pictured among family) The photo was taken 1900 or 1901. James Edgar's father was James Avis. He married Margaret Grose. She was a mid-wife according to my dad. They left Virginia to avoid the Civil War. They went to Ohio,(Dad says Gallapolis?) I haven't found any records in Ohio but I have found some verification of this . James Avis's father was William Renick ( wife Jane? Dickson?) This is where it is confusing She married Willis Martin who was James' step-father. That has been verified. William's father was Robert Renick who married Letty Dalton. The son born in captivity.
Anyone .... out there that can give me something to search to get the documentation that I need please let me know. I'd like to get this done soon. I am sure that that's what everyone would like but I want to present it to my Dad. He just turned 83 and is hoping to take a trip with me to W.Virginia to do some searching. It would be nice to have a plan of action to make out searching as efficient as possible.
Also, I have copies of Tom Drennan and his second wife Lenore Renick (James Edgar's Sister) So, Sarah Drenna Renick's Father married her husband's sister. Linda
