: Hello Everyone,
: I am in great need of some kind person to do
: a little "digging" for me in
: Prince George's County. My 3rd great
: grandfather is proported to be Zadock Riston
: b. ca. 1756 to Unknown and Rachel. Zadock
: married Elizabeth Bartley (Bartly) on 7 Jan
: 1786 and they had:
: 1. Benjamin b. ca 1787
: 2. Cassandra Ann b. ca 1802 + Thomas King
: 3. Zad(d)ock II b. 13 Oct. 1794 + Mary King
: 4. (James) Henry Bartley b. ca 1792 +
: Rebecca White
: 5. Elizabeth b. ca. 1790 + Archibald Hughes
: 6. Dennis b. ca 1797
: 7. William B. unkn dates
: The question is about the children of
: Zad(d)ock II and (James)Henry Bartley
: Riston. I would appreciate it greatly if
: someone could go to St. John's Parish (also
: known as St. Johns' at Broad Creek) 9801
: Livingston Rd., Ft. Washington, MD (off 210)
: and look at the baptismal or whatever
: records of birth, marriage, and death they
: may have on the family of Zadock Riston. The
: real concern is who were the children of
: Zad(d)ock II and (James)Henry.
: My great great grandfather was John Henry
: Riston b.4 Aug. 1817 in MD and married
: Rachel Williams in Washington, DC 26 Nov
: 1839. They had 9 children with Virginia
: Riston b. 31 Aug. 1843 in Alexandria, VA.
: being my great grandmother.
: I need to find out who John Henry's father
: really was. Was it (James) Henry Bartley
: Riston? I think it was. I would happily pay
: any expense one may incur.
: This is really important to me and any help
: will be so appreciated. I'm in another state
: (where many Ristons lived) and can't get
: there. My heartfelt thank yous in advance
: and I'll even send cookies if I can get some
: verification. Thanks.
