Over the years places have been renamed,etc. I was just wondering is this the same Westmoreland That was granted to the French Refugee's. Is there an Old Church road in the area...?

I believe you are referring to a location in Virginia, or perhaps Pennsylvania. It's definitely not our sleepy little town. Sorry!

Actually Tn. and Ky Used to be in West Virginia. To what extent I don't know. But the Line of people I was looking back to was the Dishman's. Any of them still there?

We don't have a road called "Old Church" and I don't know of any Dishmans anywhere nearby.

Based on the names, you are definitely looking for the Westmoreland County, Virginia area, which is located on the east coast. We are about 700 miles west, in northern middle Tennessee.

Info is correct. These people are descendent's of John and Robert Dishman.There is so much more! In fact, the confusion of this land is much greater than it appears. Why, KY,was just a county with three seats. Jefferson co. Lafayette, Lincoln. Tenn was just a county as well. Which I am not up to power on. So the land in the area had alot of problems. Being that the Confederacy fell. Then,France Bailed.Then soldiers with land grants,in which never recieved their land. Why? Settlers already had homesteads on them. So it became a huge mess.Then if someone married an Indian. That was a huge problem.Indians weren't allowed to be educated or own land. So what happened. If they couldn't pass for white the were evacuated.
