Leonard,

Do you have any Bechtler's in your line? I've seen that surname spelled so many ways I'm just wondering if your line has any.

Welcome.
I have yet to see any with that spelling and my tree goes way back (belchers 1380's unconfirmed) that's where I hope WikiTree will help. I have seen some Belsher.  Sorry I can not be more help.

Leonard

Hi Leonard,

There is a huge Belcher lineage at http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Belcher-419 from Virginia (my fourth great grandfather) that could definitely use some sourcing.  Any assistance is appreciated!

I will see if I can add anything, but I am no longer in Virginia.  So it will be internet research until I go back and visit.

First: James Belcher

>>>Born about 1796 in Washington, Rappahannock County, Virginia, USA...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

in 1796 I believe that was still Culpeper County.

Rappahannock became separate from Culpeper County by an Act of the General Assembly in 1833.  Looking to see if I can find the 1833 General Assembly notes online.  More Later.

It looks like James Belcher father John Belcher is the brother of Richard Belcher (7 generations from me) which is my branch.  (It late so if I am wrong sorry. but that would make us 7th cousins, right?)

Belcher in Viginia 1790-1800
Okay some stuff I had laying around and have not got into yet (current doing more current generations).  Establishes one source of residency.  Each name can be pulled up to see the actual list it is on.
