You are a cousin. Rachael or Rachel Elizabeth (surname) Barr, has a marriage record to Solomon Steidley in what is now Berkeley Co, WV. earlier it was Berkeley Co, VA and earlier than that it was part of Frederick Co, VA. They lived in what was called the Back Creek District.
Recently a friend found the old Brannon's Farm cemetery where our Rev War Ancestor James Barr was buried. He has no stone now. If I am correct, he was the father of Rachel. I will have to check my records to be certain.
James Barr was in the Rev War as a soldier in New Jersey but brought his family to VA about 1795. There is a deed for the farm. His wife was named Rachel Ross according to someone elses research.
I just joined the DAR this year on James Barr, patriot. You can go to their website and look him up and see the names of others who are descended from him.
I have plenty more and proofs for everything. I am always wanting to know more. Maybe you can share more Steidley info. I did see the cemetery for Solomon near Barr Twp.
Several of the relatives moved together to OH. I think it was about 1820, but, again, I do not have my records in front of me.
look at my name in the heading on genforum to get my email address.
