Helsley family of Virginia, WV and Ohio

Journal by patathomas

Need help in determing the parents of my gg grandfather, John N. Helsley born 16 SEPT 1821 in Woodstock VA, died 25 FEB 1892, Belmont Co OH, married 15 SEPT 1842 in Rockingham Co. VA, Magdalene Foltz, b MAR/May 1820. Their first child was born 1844 in Cross News VA.

Magdalene Foltz is the daughter of the infamous Joseph Foltz Sr & 2nd wife Susanna Overholtzer. According to the 1900 Fed census (OH Belmont Co) John and Magdalene had 10 children (7 living) Most of the children were born in Virginia. The family migrated to Ohio around 1860.

My great grandfather's name is Charles Stoner Helsley. I'm looking for information on Amanda Jane Helsley who married John M. Stoner in the Shenandoah area of Virginia.

There are a lot of potential Hensley ancestors in Virginia and I haven't had time to research that aspect yet. One of the best web pages for Hensley info is:
