I am researching a family of my Durham ancestors from Barren County, KY, who were married in the Cumberland County Courthouse, VA, in 1831. My Durhams are ALLEN WILSON DURHAM (b. 1810 in VA) and his wife LUCINDA TATE BERRY (b. 1816 in VA), and had 11 children in Hart and Barren County, settling in Barren County about 1850. ALLEN and LUCINDA DURHAM settled in the Hiseville community circa 1850, and remained there until their deaths in 1872 and 1874 respectively.

The 11 children: John N. (1833-1834), Page F (1835-??), William R. (1837-1888), Paul (1839-??, m. Sally R. Putty in 1875, also had illegitimate children by Nancy Piper), Seldon Robinson (1841-??, m. Ann Wader Kinnard in 1867, moved to Iowa), Susan Francis (1843-??, m. Henry Clay Hamill in 1860) Henry C. (1846-1865), Charles Blakley (1846-??, m. Ann Wader Kinnaird 1866), Mary Magdaline (1848-??, m. William Armstrong 1867), Martha A. (1850-1893, m. Henry Clay Moss, 1876), and my great grandfather, GEORGE WILCOX DURHAM (1853-1940), who emigrated to Slidell, Texas circa 1880.

I specifically wish to find out anything about ALLEN and LUCINDA's parents, siblings, and other ancestors in Virginia.
