I am researching the following and would appreciate any info you might share: 1) DILLEY - I am searching for any information on OCTAVIS M.W. Dilley who was born prior to 1852 in Pocahontas Co., WV. Lineage being: 1 John "Johanna" Dilley (Dilli/Dille) born prior to 1762 and immigrating from Germany, 2 Henry born in 1778 and settling in Pocahontas Co, WV, 3 William (Sr) born in 1821 and married to 2nd wife Elizabeth Ann Baker had 4 children - Octavis born bef 1852, Wm. Jr, Pleasant A. born 1852, and Anne born afterward. William (Sr) had a 3rd wife, Anne DREPPERD, dau of George and Sarah BAKER. I suspect that Anne Drepperd was a relative of Elizabeth Baker and when Elizabeth died and left William with children, he married one of her relatives - perhaps Anne which was common in those days. I will share any info I have which others have gone to great length to research and have shared with me. 2) I am also researching THORNHILL, George and Virginia Davis Thornhill, from near Blacksburg, VA, having children named Susie, Ollie, Fannie, Frank, Willie, Robert, Walter, and Emma Frances born 3/15/1884 and married William Green Lee Schumaker.
