Thanks for the information.
After I had posted the message about Old James William Sias,I worked on this branch a little more and came up with the following:
Isaac Sias ;s/o John Sullivan and Martha Jane (Stowers) Sias (remember John Sullivan Sias was a brother to Andrew Lewis, Charlotte Francis,James Wilson, and the others).

I now have added as children of Charlotte Francis Sias and her husband, Washington Plumley the
following : Octavia ; b.3/4/1875 ; d.1/1940 ; married on 3/11/1895 to William Jefferson Purdy
Rebecca ; b. 6/8/1877 ; d.6/9/1937 ; married Felton Plumley and she's buried at the Goldsbury Cemetery at Sias (Lincoln Co.,WV). Rebecca's second husband was Averll Elkins (another family I am researching)
Viola ; b.3/8/1879 ; married Henry Adkins and married 2nd. James (Cooper?); Viola is buried at Parsner Creek,WV
Bertha ; b. 6/13/1881 ;d. at Big Laural in 1935; married William Green Adkins;Bertha is buried in the Plumley Cemetery,Lincoln Co.,WV
Nona ; b. 4/7/1883 ; d. 5/21/1968 ; married Elijah Fred Stanley. Nona is also buried in the Plumley Cemetery at Big Laurel.
So,if we add these to Evi/Levi ;b. 11/19/1864;d. 1915 ; married Tennessee Adkins and Victoria T. ; b. 9/9/1866 and married Blackburn Belva Adkins, then we have 7 children listed for George Washington and Charlotte Francis (Sias) Plumley.
I refer to this line as the Mud River Siases,and someone living there supposedly has a big (wall size) picture of Old John Sullivan Sias.
If anyone picks this message up and knows anything about this picture ,please let me know.
I have Andrew Lewis Sias and James Wilson Sias's (both are my grandfathers..different sides) pictures,and it is my wish to someday have pictures and family histories of all the children of James and Rebecca (Adkins) Sias.
Also, double check my dates. I typed this from one of my "interview" notebooks , and my handwriting is very difficult to read at times.
