Queries / Michael Greathouse and Rachel Husted Greathouse
« on: May 26, 2009, 07:55:11 PM »
In looking through the site I found this:

"c. Michael Greathouse Although claimed to be a son of William, Michael is not mentioned as a son of William Sr. in his will, so there is no documentation of the relationship. A Rachel Hustead, daughter of Moses married John Beard on 25 July 1791 Harrison County, VA, and Michael Greathouse married Rachel Hustead on October 12, 1792 in Harrison County, VA. Michael is showing as head of household in 1800 census of Harrison County Virginia. Michael Greathouse owned 25 acres on Berry's Run in Harrison Co in 1838. It is said that his will was probated May 1839, Harrison County, WV Order Book number 2 page 177"

I cannot find these marriage records.  May I ask your source for the marriage information you are giving here.

Page 450, I find a marriage for John Beard to Mary (Unknown) 25 December 1791.  It is the only reference to John Beard as far as marriages go that I can find.

Can you please give me your source documentation for your marriages?
