Fisher children - Preston, WV and Fayette PA

  of 968

Recently a fellow genealogist sent me some 1850 census information on a number of Fisher children that were split up into these two counties. These children were my great great grandfathers brothers and sisters. I also learned that the vital records for Preston County, WV were destroyed in a fire in 1869. My grandmother told me once that the father of these children was John Fisher. Hopefully someone out there will know these children and why they had to be split up because it seems they were split among different family members.

Henry Fisher 6 in Wharton, Fayette living with Amos Casteel.
Elizabeth Fisher 12 Wharton, Fayette with Henry Sampley.
Melinda (Malinda) 17 Henry Clay, Fayette with Alexander Kelley.
Persilla (Druscilla) 11 HC, Fayette with Thomas Brown.
Jeremiah 15 45th Dist. Preston with Catherine Spurgis (Spurgeon?)
Margaret 16 45th, Preston with James Sturgis (Spurgeon?)
Mary Ann 11 and Amos 4 45th Preston with John Cuppet

Family surnames in our lineage: Casteel, Spurgeon, Cuppett.

Anyone with any information would be appreciated.
