There are family gravestones in Morgantown dating back to 1811, if I remember correctly. There may be some older ones around Rochester I'm told, just haven't made it over there to look yet.

Dig~

Most in the late 1700's and they were given land grants after the Revolutionary War. Some came over in the mid 1700's but returned to VA to help the Revolution.
Most of my family came over from Scotland, Ireland, England in the late 1600's

Mine did too but I think they started out in Maryland and Virginia.
