Notes
a. Note:   Virginia. This may not be correct as Cross Lanes is in Kanawha County and his parents were in Nicholas/Fayette County during this time period. Keslers Cross Lanes is in Nicholas County. His death certificate also lists Cross Lanes, Fayette County. Possible that Keslers Cross Lanes is meant.
