      John House "Pioneers of Wood Co"
      Benjamin Rector was of German descent, but the name does not so indicate, and settled in VA.
      A son, Charles, lived in Wirt Co, formerly Wood Co, until a few years before his death, which occured at the home of his son, Charles, in Jackson Co. He came from Fauquier Co soon after the War of 1812. He had a number of slaves and was Sheriff of Wood Co. Of his children:
      Susan m. Raleigh M Kyger
      Sarah m. William H Smith, their son William H m. a Jackson
      Martha m. a Sims
      Levin
      Steptoe
      A Rector married a Sherman and lived at Little Sandy. Charley Rector, who was a candidate for Sheriff of Jackson Co, was a grandson of the Charles Rector above, who must have moved to Jackson County in the '40s.
      Enoch Rector, the Baptist preacher, was a son of Thomas, brother of Benjamin.
