  • Notes 
    • Wayne Allgaier wrote (14 July 2001):
      "George, Adam and Nicholas went east over the mountains [from Pendleton Cnty, W.Va. where their father settled] to Rockingham County, VA...where they purchased adjacent properties...."

      [Note that when Virginia seceded from the United States in 1861, a majority of residents in the western counties objected. Those counties petitioned Congress to be re-admitted to the Union. The State of West Virginia came into existence in 1863. Pendleton Cnty, W.Va. was created from parts of Rockingham, Augusta and Hardy, Virginia, counties.]
