I got this email 12/99 from Karen Vanhorn:

"I was wondering if the Cornelius Wayland of your family might have been the father of a man by the name of Clement Wayland from the Madison county area. I have been researching my Chapman family ancestors and a man by the name of Clement Wayland (from Madison Co. VA who was a widower, and the son of Cornelius Wayland) married a woman by the name of Huldah (Layton) Chapman (from Spotsylvania Co who was a widow and the daughter of Robert Layton) in Taylor County, WV June 25, 1854. This would have made Clement born approximately 1809. This Clement & Huldah moved to Barbour County, WV for a while and I found them in Mason County, WV in 1880 then lost track of them. Any information would be immensely appreciated! If this is a relative of yours & mine - I have lots of information I'd like to share. [email protected]"

This Clement may have become a widower and married again like the one she is researching, as the1854 second marriage would fit in. I got this message from her again in 12/99:

The 1850 Orange County Census lists Huldah as Huldah Layton (32
year old female). Living with her were:
Ann - 14 year old female
William H- 13 year old male
Robert A - 11 year old male
James M- 8 year old male
Alonzo - 4 year old male
Bysa W - 3 year old male

I don't know why Huldah is listed as Layton (that was her maiden name, and each of the children with her are also listed as Layton instead of Chapman. (Unless perhaps she & William Chapman were divorced or something) Or maybe he was gone from the home and the census taker knew her personally and put her maiden name...there's alll kinds of

In the list of Taylor Co., WV marriages, the list reads:
Wayland, Clement 45 (W) Madison Co VA;
Chapman, Hulda B 36 (W) Spotsylvania Co
VA; Taylor
Robert Layton 25 June 1854

The Barbour County WV courthouse has death records for Barbour/Taylor counties: Bysa (Bisa) Chapman died August 24, 1855 in Taylor County, WV of scarlet fever. The death was reported by Clement Wayland (stepfather) and listed the parents as Wm & Huldah B. Chapman of Orange Co, VA..

In 1860, Clement & Huldah were living in Barbour County, WV with James listed as head of household. I lost track of them until 1880 and then I found them living in Mason Co. WV with their daughter Molly W. Roush (wife of W.H. Roush). Molly's marriage certificate lists her
place of birth as Upshur Co. WV. I have not been there yet to obtain a birth certificate to verify that as fact. But Molly & William .H. Roush were married April 25, 1870 in Mason County, WV. Molly's name on her marriae certificate lists Mary W. Wayland & her age on her marriage
certificate lists her as 18 years of age, which would have made her born in 1852, and lists her parents as Clement & Huldah Wayland. I don't know if she was born out of wedlock or what. Also in the household during the 1880 census was S.H. Wayland their son. My cousin who just
past away told me S.H. Wayland stood for "Shelton" or something like that. She believed he (S.H. Wayland) was a casket salesman.

William H. Roush died August 30, 1884 at the age of 34 of typhoid fever. He was a coal miner. His parents names were F. Philip & Mahala Kein Roush.

It might be interesting to note that my great-great grandfather James Chapman (Huldah's son) married his wife in Marietta Ohio (which is right across from Mason Co. WV). Also, when I found Clement & Huldah with Molly & her husband in Mason Co., WV in 1880, I also found Alonzo living in Mason Co. WV (he left his wife & kids). I've often tried to figure out the magnetism of Mason County, WV & Marietta, Ohio back in the 1800's. That would have been a very, very long way for them to travel from Barbour County. There had to be some kind of family connection over in that area. I plan to make my next research trip to that area.

I hope this helps you some. I will keep you updated as I find out more information. As I said, I've been trying to find Huldah's first husband, William Chapman, but for 17 years I've found nothing. My daughter got me Webtv for Christmas, so I decided to try to take a new avenue and see if I might find William by learning about Clement. I was snooping around and found your website & Cornelius and Clement's names. That is how I came to write to you.

NOTE: A, pp.87-89,106; B, p.80; Dove, pp.56,240.

Vee Dove, in her beautiful book with photos entitled "Madison County Homes", says that Benjamin acquired his father's property on the Rapidan River (photo of house), but lost it in business reverses and built another home (photo) about 1860 on land given them by wife's father.
