Send me your private e-mail address to and I will forward the three letters I have transcribed.

I will also send you my snail mail address for the copies of the article. Thank you so much for sending that to me!

I have looked around and so far don't find anything with the name Banks or Worthington but, I have a lot to look through.

I have a copy of some Deyerle wills (but not Benjamin Deyerle) and maybe I can find a clue for you in those. If you want, I could make a note of all the slaves mentioned in these wills and send it to you. Maybe they will have a clue for you?

At one time, I did make a copy of the 1860 Slave Schedule for Benjamin Deyerle. There are no names but the slaves are listed by age, sex and race. I can send that to you also.

What do you know about the Worthington family that your grandfather went to live with in the mid 1860s? Do you know anything about what your grandfather did after the Civil War? Did he move back to Virginia to be with his family?

I agree that there must be a connection between your Peyton Lewis Banks and Peyton Matthew Lewis. My first thought is that your Peyton might be the nephew of Peyton M. Lewis - Peyton M. Lewis probably had a sister. Maybe Banks was his sister's married name?

I look forward to trying to figure this out with you. I hope that we can make a connection that will help you with your research.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
