Seeking More Info on Carnefix Families of VA/ WVA
My paternal gr-grandmother was a Carnefix from Monroe County, WV. Have delved back to about 1680 with her ancestry and found Carnefix's into central Virginia. They then migrated into the west and into what is now West Virginia. But I do not know where they were before central Virginia. Records are scarce, if any, for the time period in this area. Any help would be appreciated.
On a slightly different note:
An old friend passed away this past Sunday. Her obituary was in Tuesday's paper. Catherine was 88 years old. I had known her since I was a teenager [over 30 years now]. Was I ever surprised when I read her obituary and saw her mother's maiden name. "CARNEFIX". And, lo and behold, she was a block wall I wasn't able to hurdle. I'd stumbled for years trying to locate this missing link to the family tree. And all this time Catherine was sitting right before me! If only I'd taken the time to even mention my research to her, I might have learned some valuable insight.
Lesson: talk to EVERYONE!!!!!!! You never know who, or where, you might find help in breaching that stumbling block of your own!
