  • Name Lydia Wanless 
    Born Abt 1794  (probably) Bath Co, Virginia Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Gender Female 
    Died Yes, date unknown 
    Notes 
    • Married J. (or I. or L.) McGuire and settled in Ohio. [Price, March 25, 1898, Pocahontas Times] -- in same article, he correctly says that Betsy & Thos Hadden and settled in Ohio, but incorrectly says that Thomas & Julian settled in Ohio (it was Iowa), so IF he's right about this McGuire marriage, they might have ended up in Iowa or even elsewhere in the west. Plus we have a marriage bond for Vick and none for McGuire, although I wonder if Vick could have died young and Lydia then married McGuire somewhere...

      Birth calculation: Assuming she was at least 16 when she married, she had to be born before June 1794. In 1810 census, she has to be 1 of 2 females between 10 and 16, making her birth between 1794 and 1800. So, she was probably born in 1794, plus or minus a year for misreporting.

      A Lidia Vick is listed in the 1850 VA census in Southampton Co, as being 77, making her birthdate 1772/1773, before Ralph & Crissey's marriage. Possible, if Ralph had a wife before Crissey. Or else this is a different Lydia, and ours is dead or moved somewhere.
      In 1850 Southampton Co, there are many John Vicks, but no wife Lydia; in 1860, there are neither John nor Lydia Vick in VA index.. There is a John Vines, 66, in Rockbridge, but his wife Polly is only 49...checked all Vi* in Pocahontas, Greenbrier, Rockbridge, Bath, Augusta, Highland, Rockingham, Alleghany, Fauquier, Pendleton, Southampton in 1850 census on CD. Southampton Co p.251 has Boling B. Vick, 45, and wife Lydia, 45, but Boling is a pretty far stretch from John.

      1850: Lydia Veach, 53, b. VA - Frederick Co, p.328, Middle Town - no other Veachs in that co. and nobody with her

      1810: A John Viah in Bath and a John Vines in Augusta; will check out next time.
      1820: No John Vick/Vieh/Viers/Vines in Bath or Augusta Co.
      1830: Like 1820; only Vicks are in Southampton Co, every decade.

      Holly,
      This is what I have on John Viers and his wife Lydia. I never knew her
      last name. On all the info I have it just lists her as Lydia. John "Via"
      Viers was born Feb. 8, 1787 in Bath Co., Virginia. He is listed on the
      1820 census as living in Gallia Co., Ohio. Also listed on the 1830
      census in Ohio. He died May 13, 1872 in Gallia Co., Ohio. I don't have
      the date of his marriage to Lydia. All I have on her is she was born Fe.
      23, 1793 in Pocahontas Co., Virginia. and died May 17, 1840 in
      Huntington Twp., Gallia Co., Ohio. Their children were: Margaret Ann,
      Nancy(my gr-gr-grandmother) Elizabeth Amelia, James, William, Andrew,
      Samuel, Polly Ann, Sarah Angelina, John Allen. So they did settle in
      Ohio but she died before John did so I doubt that she remarried. I know
      that John was married twice but I'm not sure in what order. Her name was
      Annie Glenn McCarley. This would be great if it was the same Lydia. I
      know nothing about her. If this helps any let me know. I have lots more
      info on the Viers family. I am located in Norman, Okla. I got the dates & names from another researcher on the Viers name. Hope to hear from you. Dixie
