Who is interested in the Siner/Sinor surname? I can also help somewhat with the surnames of Sandusky, Springer, Beecher, and Crow.

My ggg grandfather Benjamin Siner (Sinor, Syner, Sinah, Sineth) was born around 1759. Family legend said he was born near London England and later came to America. Others say he was born in Middlesex County, Virginia, to Joseph Siner and Mrs. Mary Small Siner.
The story goes on to say he went back to England for his bride. Actually, he married Mary (Polly) Maladay (Meridy, Malladay) in 1797 in Bedford County, Virginia.
Polly and he had a bunch of kids. Yes, I have their names. Their son Nelson was my great-great grandfather. Nelson married Desdemona Shelburn(e) when he was 17; she was 19. They had their first child around 9 months later, give or take a few months. Their son John Lawson Siner was my g grandfather. He first married Sarah Curry. She died after about 10 years of marriage with no children. He then married Cynthia Jane (Jenny) Beecher who was much younger than he. They also had a slew of kids of which Hosea John Siner was my grandpa. My grandpa Siner married Sallie Springer. They didn't have a bunch or a slew of kids; they only had two. John Thomas Siner is my father. I am John Steven Siner. I broke the chain of using the name John for one of my children. I was raised with the name "Steve," and I was called John by those who didn't know me. I had disdain for the name and subconsciously banned its usage for any of my children.
Genealogy is my hobby and has been for about 35 years. I have probably researched all the information that I will ever get on my families.
