Looking for the parents of Catherine MCCRACKEN b. 1807 in Hampshire Co. VA. I recently found a Cyrus MCCRACKEN (1779-1813) who lived there and married Martha CELDIODI (1763-1807). They had a daughter Martha Allen MCCRACKEN (1805- 1833) who married John WILLIAMS Jr. (1798-1836). They had a daughter Catherine (1829-1902). I noticed that Martha (CELDIODI) MCCRACKEN died the same year my Catherine MCCRACKEN was born. I wonder if my Catherine was a second child of Virgil and Martha C. and their older daughter named her child after her younger sister Catherine. My Catherine was placed under the guardianship of Conway RECTOR in 1807. Something must have happened to her parents. Catherine married James TWIGG and lived in Allegany Co. MD just across the Potomac from Hampshire Co. Any help would be appreciated!

A huge Thanks to everyone who tabulated marriages and put them on-line! Joyously I found the m. of Wm. Duncan REED and "Jeannette" LAMB, 17 Sept. 1858, m. in Cumberland, Washington St. Allegany Co. (Would the street mean the courthouse?)

Still searching for the first husband of Jeanette/Jane LAMB. She had a son, James LAMB in 1854 in Lonaconing. I cannot prove, nor disprove, that Jm. LAMB, of the 2nd Potomac MD. Bridgade, was the father of little James. His tombstone is next to a Jane and Jm. LAMB in the Rose Hill Cemetery. Thank you all for the volumes of work you do.
