My pedigree for my Marcum line, which started with Josiah Marcum who was born in Chesterfield Co, VA, and he travelled across lower Virginia and made his way up to Cabell Co, VA, which later became Wayne Co, WV.  This lower part of Wayne Co, WV and radiating outward about 2 counties on each side, which includes Ohio, and Kentucky, are where most of his decendants can be found:

Josiah Marcum, Sr. b. 2 May 1759 Chesterfield Co, VA (as stated by himself on his pension papers), d. Mar 1846 in Wayne Co, WV; M1. Eda McDonald (no marriage has been found); M2. Polly (some say Belcher). 
     My line comes possibly from the first wife: 
     John C. Marcum, b. 1798 Cabell Co, VA, d. April 1860 Wayne Co, VA; m. Clerinda Stephens
          Joshua Marcum, b. 29 Oct 1822 Wayne Co, VA; d. 13 Feb 1902 Wayne Co, WV; md. Mahala Fluty
               William Marcum "Cotton Hill Bill", b. 19 Jul 1860 Wayne Co, VA, d. 15 Aug 1931 Wayne Co, WV;
               M1. Rachel Crum (my line); M2. Millie Delphia Copley
                    Grover Cleveland Marcum, Sr., b. 17 May 1888 Wayne Co, WV, d. 1 Sept 1936 Bath Co, VA;
                    md. Rhoda Salmons
                         Grover Cleveland Marcum, Jr., b. 31 Aug 1935 Bath Co, VA; md. Anita Marie Grose
                              Rhoda Dian Marcum, b. 22 Mar 1964 Augusta Co, VA  (me); md. Roger William Burks

My main reason for doing the DNA testing to other Marcum/Markham males is to see what line my Marcums go back through.  There is not any information found on who my line of Marcums come from beyond Josiah.  So I am hoping to break through this brick wall, with other Markham/Marcum participants help.  I thank your for joining.

I have not included the dates of those still living, nor have I included all of the sons and daughters of C A Marcum and their descendants due to privacy issues (many of them are still living).

We know our family comes from England but we have not traced it back that far yet. Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated. We believe or rather we have heard that the Markham family comes from the city of Markham in England or Whales.

If you have any questions please let me know.

I have been identified as M-34 on the DNA page.

I can provide a more comprehensive Genealogy Chart if anyone is interested.
