Wykles and Kin of Virginia and West Virginia

These pages contain transcriptions and abstracts of public records I have collected during my family research. Most of these records were created in the counties of southwestern Virginia/West Virginia, USA (Monroe, Raleigh, Fayette, Summers) with some earlier records from other Virginia counties (Augusta, Greenbrier, Frederick). Spellings of surnames and other words are presented as they appear on the original documents. If you have material you would like to see included on these pages or would like to share information on any of the people listed here, please contact me, Debora Kerr, at In case of any e-mail difficulties, I may also be reached at this alternate e-mail address.
