  • Is this the same William Shreve listed in the History of Randolph Co., WV? Who were his parents and who were his wife and children? Is this William married to Mary Jane Lawrence and their children Catherine Shreve Westfall and James Shreve married to Lydia Jane Smith?

    This record says William Shreve was insolvent in 1818...was he not able to pay his debts?

    I really believe this is William husband of Mary Jane and father of Catherine and James... Revolutionary War Soldier William Shreve born in Loudoun Co., VA and later moved to Randolph Co., VA {later WV}
