I am searching the McCumbers and the Metheney family from West Virginia and maybe Ohio. I have the McCumbers family back to Miles McCumbers born 1824. Stories that I have heard say the McCumbers family originated in Ohio under the name McCombs and was later changed to McCumbers because of a marriage to an American Indian. As the story goes he changed his name and moved to West Virginia. Miles McCumbers married a Cherokee Indian named Jerusia Cottrill I don't know if this is the man that changed the name or maybe it went back another generation, but this is as far back as I go. I have the Metheney family back to Simon Metheney 1816. Other family branches that I am looking for are Cottrill, Hicks, Jarvis, Siers (Sears). I will gladly trade my information.
