I think something got confused here. Let me try again my question are 1 who are the parents of John J Mayberry b cal 1811 in Pa. His wife was Margaret. They lived in jackson co Iowa from shortly before 1860 to 1880. John J died in 1880. his son Valentine Boyd is my gr grandfather.
I have been trying to determine who were parents of John J and I don't have a clue.
His children in 1860 were Valentine, Robert, Calvin, Anderson, Smith, Martha J., and A Mayberry Also living with was Martha Mayberry age 72 who I think is the mother of Margaret and who's maiden was Laughlin and was born in Ireland
Some have said his parents were Thomas and Mary Sankey of Lawrence County Pennsylvania , but I don't see the connection. Can anyone help me out here.
