Edith,
I have no record of Thomas Bland and I do not know who the father of Barbara
Bland was. The following is the
information I have gathered from other researchers and sources re: James
Wamsley:

Ancestors of James Wamsley
Generation No. 1
1. James Wamsley, born March 06, 1762 in Augusta County, Virginia1; died
February 28, 1842 in Lewis,
Virginia (West Virginia after the Civil War). He was the son of 2. John
Wamsley, Sr. and 3. Judith Dorcus. He married
(1) Barbara Bland 1783 in Lewi
County, Virginia (West Virginia). He married (2) Mary Reger November 11,
1830
in Lewis County, Virginia (West Virginia
after the Civil War). He married (3) Effie Perry February 12, 1838 in Lewis
County, Virginia (West Virginia after the Civil
War).
Notes
James served in the Revolutionary War. He was present on the muster
roll in Captain Peter Hull's Company, Second
Battilion, Augusta Militia, 1779.
James Wamsley and son Samuel were on the 1802 Randolph County tax
collector's list.
James acquired 42 acres of land in Randolph County, Virginia (West
Virginia after the Civil War) on March 1, 1810.
This land was on the west side of Valley River adjoining the west side of
his
own land.
James Wamsley, of Lewis County, Virginia was also an Indian Spy for the
Virginia Militia. On July 19, 1833, at the
age of 69, his pension was started - $80.00 annual allowance, $240.00
received. Source: Pension application S6323,

He is buried in the Brick Church Cemetery, Huttonsville, Randolph
County,
West Virginia. The gravestone marker
placed in recent years gives James' date of birth as 1762. This stone in
the
Old Brick Church cemetary is a
comemoriative one erected b
his descendant Norman Wamsley.

County, Augusta officially became a

1700's most of West Virginia was Augusta. A large percentage of West
Virginia counties, including Hampshire, Lewis,

Braxton were originally Augusta County,

Chris Straight,
For my records, what is your grandmother's (daughter of Jefferson Floyd
Wamsley) name, date of birth, husband, and
children? I have some information on Jesse Wamsley. He was a Private in a
War of 1812 Infantry Unit under Captain
John Wamsley. He was mustered in at Beverly, Randolph county, on September
3,
1814 into the 6th Regiment of the
Virginia Militia. This information is kept at the Library of Virginia since
at that time West Virginia was part of Virginia.
The Library of Virginia is online, and even though it sometimes takes a long
time to access information, there is a fair
amount of Wamsley information at the site.

daughter
of 2. Isaac Harvey Wamsley,

3. Rachel.
Notes
Isaac, Jr. went with his family from New Jersey to Adams County, Ohio.
Later, in 1813, he went to Franklin County,
Indiana with his family. Some of his decendants then went to Wabash County,
Indiana; others went to Decatur County,
Indiana.
He went farther west than his brothers and became a "wild man," as he
was
called by the rest of the family,
because of his roving disposition, and his fondness for hunting and the wild
sports of the trackless forest. In the
history books of Adams County, Ohio he is referred to as "the wild man"
because of lack of desire to stay in one place;
he liked to roam. His descendants have been traced to California and the
isles of the sea.

Notes
The great-grandfather of the present race of Wamsleys, was born in
North
Germany sometime in the seventeenth
century. He was a seafaring man, the captain of a vessel whose appearance in
American waters, about the year
1770, is beginning of the Wamsley history in this country.
His vessel seemed to be of a warlike character and took part in the
early
struggle of America upon the high seas. It
is not definitely known under which flag he sailed, whether English or
American, and the tradition is that he was kind of
free lancing, sailing upon his own hook and doubtless exacting tribute from
any and all the parties engaged in those
early days, when privateers and bucaneers sailed the seas, some with, but
more
without, letters of marque from
organized forms of government.
After the loss of his vessel by wreck or capture, he settled in
Maryland
or Delaware. He took part in the struggle of
the Colonies against England and settled in the area of New York City. He
and his wife and four sons emigrated to the
Northwest Terrritory in 1798 and located on Ohio Brush Creek, at Forge Dam
in
Jefferson Township.
Children of Isaac Wamsley and Leah Taylor are:
i.William Wamsley, born January 23, 1776; died September 26, 1845 in
Adams
County,
Ohio; married Sarah Wikoff 1798 in Adams County, Ohio.
2ii.Isaac Harvey Wamsley, Jr., born 1778 in New Jersey; died Aft 1820;
married Rachel in
New Jersey or Kentucky.
iii.Christopher Wamsley, born July 15, 1779 in New Jersey; died March 25,
1865 in Adams
County, Ohio; married Elizabeth Stevenson.
iv.Jonathan Wamsley, born 1784; died Aft 1838; married Sarah Odell
February
04, 1834 in
Adams County, Ohio.
