Rebecca Virginia RUSMISEL and David M PROPES and their descendants

Last week, before I started blogging, I was in the middle of tracing some of my RUSMISEL kinfolks. I have spent the last few days trying to learn a bit about the blogging world. Now it is time for me to get back to my genealogy research.

When I joined Geneabloggers I plugged RUSMISEL into their search engine and had a hit on Michael Hait's "Trick of the Tree" blog. On March 29 he had a post about one of his brick walls: George L OBAUGH. George's son, James A. OBAUGH, married Mary Jane PROPS. Mary Jane was the daughter of  David PROPS and Rebecca Virginia RUSMISEL. In honor of my first blog finding, I am adding the OBAUGHs and Rebecca Virginia's lines to my tree.

Rebecca Virginia RUSMISEL and David PROPS were married in November 1848. Some records show Nov. 30 and some the 23rd. The 23rd is probably the bond, but I have not tried to acquire the original records.

David PROPES, gave information
[She is buried in Union Cemetery, Augusta County, Virginia]

David PROPES later married Rebecca RUSMISEL's sister Miriam RUSMISEL. I have the date as 17 Jan 1888, but I think that may not be correct. I do not have a primary source for the date. I don't have a death date for David PROPES. I have a death date of 27 Jun 1913 for Miriam. After David's death, she married a Dave KENNEDY.
