This is the same Samuel (James Via) Viers married to Hetty Edwards, daughter of Brice Edwards. I am wondering when and why Samuel Via changed his name to James Viers. When he and Hetty came to Dickenson County Virginia they were Viers not Via. Does anyone have this information? Apparently your ancestor, Elizabeth (Betty) Via did not change the spelling of her name to Viers. Thank you for your information.
