My family is researching the Miller Family of Bland County, Virginia. We are having trouble finding information on Charles T. Miller. Charles T. Miller was born around 1795 and lived near Crandon, Bland County. We do not know the location of his birth. He married Anna McNeil on August 13, 1819 in Giles County, Va. Charles and Anna had six children. Abraham Woodson (whose 1st wife was Rachel Hearn), Lorenzo John, Jacob, Charles K., Lucinda Ann, and Alexander Fleming. Charles T. Miller died on 12-31- 1867. We would like to know who Charles T. Miller's mother and father were and where they resided. We believe they may have lived near Dunkard's Bottom on the New River in Montgomery County which is now Pulaski County.

Subject: My Grandfather

 My grandfather, Otto Clinton Mustard, was, as best as we can tell, born in Bland County on 2-9-1882. He was very secretive about his youth, so we know very little about his past and family. He did mention a place called Crab Orchard; however, I cannot find it on the map. My aunt thinks that his father's name was Charles and his mother was Manierva. It is said that they never married, although they had six children. What is more, they supposedly had the same last name, Mustard. I would like to find out more information. Do have any suggestions about getting started?

They were married before Smyth and Bland counties split off from Wythe County, Virginia. I have David's ancestry but WHO was Elizabeth's parents. My wife and I were at the Tazewell Library the other day and found the book "Pioneers of The Bluegrass" but we could not find the parents of Elizabeth Peery. Could you please help on this problem? David's and Elizabeth's daughter, SOPHIA GOSE, married DAVID DENNY. Sophia died sometime in the 1860s. David Denny then married NANCY PEERY. David Denny and Nancy Peery are buried in the Taylor Cemetery near Broadford, Va. My wife is a descendant of the David Denny/Sophia Gose marriage. Jerry Penley
