Just found this sight and find it very interesting at times. I was wondering if anyone could help me. My Mom was born and raised in Saltville, her maiden name was Poore. My Grandma's maiden name was Poston. Does anyone know anyone with these last names? Thank-You

The Poores were from Henry Town, and the Postons were from down the valley and from Russell county. There were Poston's on the river. What Poston's are you talking about? There were Poston's from Saltville, out on Smoky Row, in the past.

My grandpa was John Poore and my grandma was Emma Poston Poore. My Mom was Marilyn Poore, I had some uncles Shirley, Sharkey, and Sherman (who died long before I was born. I remember my grandparent lived next door to Bud and Sis McCray but don't remember the rd. I think it was a highway though Thank You for any help you can give me.

My cousins grandfather was Sharkey on his father's side. Not sure how much or what kind of information you are lookin for, but I knew Sharkey when I was young.

I remember staying @ Uncle Sharkey and Aunt Ruby's when we came to visit from Illinois. Just was wondering what happened to cousins. Suzanne, Herbie, Mark, Scott, and Renae.

Know a Herbie Poore from Glade Springs who is an auto mechanic, and has a garage there. His family was from Saltville.

Herbies garage is behind the car quest in Glade Spring. You can find his no. and call and ask him.Herbie is a really nice friendly person, if he's not the one you're lookin' for, maybe he could tell you more about the family.

The Poore's from Henrytown are close kin to Charles Borders Jr., that now lives on Love's Mill Road in Chilhowie. His mother was Clater Poore, who passed away 2 years ago. The Poore that owns the furniture outlet in Meadowview is also a direct descendent. I knew Claude, Clater, and Loomis very well. All of them, good people. There were several families of Postons in Saltvile, including Peck and Patty from Smokey Row, and Burnis and Elaine from the Government Plant area. Chilhowie Police Chief Steve Price
is a direct descendent from them. His uncle Doug was Elaine's son. Gene, Elaine's son is still alive around Chilhowie somewhere. Hope this helps.

What was your Mom's name? Sharkey had several children that are still living in Saltville. I'll see if I can find out more info.
