Rexroads settled the South Fork of what is now Pendleton Co., WV, in 1774. Rexroad is a German name (Rixroth), which means "red king." Margaret Elizabeth Havenor (Hevener)

OR

Margaretha Cowger

See note about recent research regarding her maiden name as it may have been Cowger instead of Hevener.

Research Note: According to the late William D. Rexroad's book George Rexrode Senior of Virginia (2007), in chapter 4 (George & Margaret), he states on page 24 that Margaret's name is unknown (no document) although some family histories say Hevener. A footnote says that Jeff Carr's hypothesis is that she is Margaretha Cowger (b May 1758 to Conrad and Barbara Propst Cowger). Jeff found that there was no Margaret Hevener (she was too young) that could be George's wife, but there was a Margaret Cowger. George & Margaret Rexrode had a son Conrad. Would he have been named after his grandfather Conrad Cowger (Johann Conrad Gauger)? If this is true, then Hevener, Jung, Mallow, Mayer, Miller (at least on this portion of my family tree), Seibert (Seybert) and Spengler are not necessarily in my ancestry.
