* Redden/Meador/Davis/Gwinn/Ford Genealogy of VA and WVA*

Updated September 5, 2000

I am researching the Redden line which comes down from William Redden who was born in the late 1700's in England. He married Fannie Kaylor. His children that I descend from are Michael Redden born about 1812 in Fayette County. He was married to Elizabeth Adkins. The next in line was Harrison Redden, born about 1836 and married to Mary "Polly" Kidwell. Next is my Grandfather Charles Redden Born December 08, 1870. He was married to Etta/Ettie Redden born April 17, 1873 who was the daughter of John L. Redden son of John Redden, son of Sarah Redden.

I am also researching Meador, Gwinn, Ford and Davis lines.
