Who is your biggest MYSTERY ANCESTOR? Samuel Sadler
Comments:
Samuel Sadler was listed in the 1850 Lawrence County Kentuck federal Census as follows

Samuel is my GGG Grandfather


Sadler Samel, DOB 1823 or 1813 Head
Sadler Nancy, DOB 1829 or 1819 Wife
Sadler Bathena 1844 Dau
Sadler Mary J 1846 Dau.
Sadler Andrew J 1848 Son

Nancy was a Gibson. Her parents may have been
Thomas Gibson and Jenny Lucas

I and several other seekers have not been able to find out where Samuel came from or where he went to after the 1850 census
Andrew Jackson Sadler, son, was apprenticed out to a Geiger Family in Boyd County Kentucky where he eventually married Lydia Estep. Before Lydia passed on they had two boys.
Sherman ( Mack ) DOB 1870
James Henry DOB 1871

After Lydias death Andrew J. married Elizabeth Stewart in Carter County Ky.

Samuel's wife Nancy with two boys ended up in Scioto County Ohio several years later.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Have been attempting to find the Cemetery where Davis S. Fields (1834- 23 Mar 1908) is buried. Most records show that he is buried in Nancy Back Cemetery behind Dixon Memorial Church, Jeremiah, KY. I visted that location and could not find either Davis or his wife, Nancy Caudill (6 June 1835 -16 Sep 1919). Another reference lists burial at Fields Cemetery, Carcassonne, Ky.

Who is your biggest MYSTERY ANCESTOR? Isaac Stanley's mother
Comments:
I have know idea what to do. I want to solve this mystery of my great grandfather Isaac Stanley's parentage, it has me rattled with dead ends and the federal census through Ancestory.com. I was told that Isaac "Ike" Stanley was born in 1860 in Dickenson County, Virginia and the parents was rumor to be William "Bill" Stanley and Ana. According to the federal census, there was two Isaac Stanley's with two same father's name, but the mother's name is different. One was Anada Long and the other is Mary "Jane". My great-grandfather Isaac married my great-grandmother Lydia Mae Maltida Mullins in Wyoming County, Virginia and the couple lived there before my Isaac was murdered in Wyoming County, VA in about 1894-1895. My grandfather Robert Riley was three years old when that had happened. What is confusing, there is another Isaac Stanley married a woman named Oma Mullins, according to the website and someones family trees through ancestory.com/federal census. When I checked the federal census through my grandfather, it say that Isaac's birth place was in Kentucky, instead Virginia. I do have proof of a marriage certificate that my great-grandfather Isaac and Lydia Mae Maltida Mullins was married. What I am looking for, who is Isaac's mother and ok, knowing the answer to his father, give me that too. Could you help me.

Comments:
Family history says he came from Pike C. KY, moved to Tazewell, VA. When the Civil War broke out, he joined the Union Army. His family was still in Tazewell, so he sneaked home to visit, was turned in by neighbors to the Confederate Army, and was executed. Don't know exactly what happened to his family and lands afterward. We understand his brother-in-law, a man named Davis was with him and was also executed. Anyone who knows anything can contact me via email. I would appreciate any info. Thanks

Any information or insight you could provide would be of great value to me and my ancestors. God bless you in your efforts.

Comments:
My mother's family has been in Franklin Co, Rocky Mount area for several hundred years, at least, from what I can tell. My gr grandfather was James Alexander Alamander Tazewell Hunt. All I know about him was that his mother's name is Sarah Jane Hunt (married?). My gr grandmother raised my mother and her siblings as her mother died when she was 6 yo. My gr grandmother was Locky Katherine Hall, whose line went back to Isham Hall/Mullins line. I live in Bedford Co but go to Rocky Mount to do research.
One interesting thing about the Hunt line is that the men all have dark complexions, black hair, and brown or grey eyes (including my son). My grandfather was James Allen Hunt and he had the same coloring. I've been reading info on Melungeon history, and Franklin Co., Va did have a Melungeon population.

Hello, I was looking into Jesse's 2nd wife Margaret Elliott, and noticed you had some Elliott's on ancestry.com.

Nice site BTW.

I wonder if you have a "Margaret Elliott" in your collection of Elliott's ?

I'm sort of thinking one of the senior Elliott's in the Morgan Co. KY area must be her parents,

All I know is that Margaret married James Kimball 25 Feb. 1841 in Morgan Co. KY and later married Jesse Conn 21 April 1853 (my earliest know Conn) in Morgan Co. KY.

Jesse Conn died just before the 1870 census - and Margaret (Elliott / Kimball) Conn was listed
in the Elliott Co. KY census (the part of Morgan Co. that they lived in was now in the new Elliott Co. KY
formed in 1869 I believe.

thank you for any info,

Carl Conn

My sister in law did some research and traced us back through Squire Hall, Isham III, Isham Jr and Isham Sr as direct ancestors to my father Clifford Sr, my grandfather Melvin and great grandfather Henry. I know one of the Ishams (Jr or III) moved to Floyd County which is where my father is from. Don't know too much about Isham Sr and there were conflicting stories of Squire serving in the 64th Conf Inf or the 39th Ky. Anything you know would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to know if Isham or others from the family were in the Revolution. I know one of the Ishams married the daughter of Revolution John Mullins. Excellent website.

Sure could use some help proving he lived a lot longer than 1866.

She was my great grandmother. According to what I can find, she was never married. She was born in 1856. Her parents were Marshall Mullins and Louisa "Eliza" Mullins.
One time I found a record that she had three children, Peston Sherman Mullins, William H.(Rant) Mullins and Marshall Mullins. There was also a note of another son with a differnt last name. I believe that name was Riley
I would like to clear up that mystery

Who is your biggest MYSTERY ANCESTOR? Robert "Robin"/"Bob" White
Comments:
I have been working on Robert White's family, attempting to determine if he is the missing, younger brother of my Vincent White of Craven Co, NC and trying to assist another researcher in determining if Robert & Margaret Stamper could be her Monroe Rufus White's parents. I have a lot of detailed census info on the entire family on a Word Doc and it is done in a descendancy chart format. The 1820 & 1830 census suggests that Robert & Margaret either have many unknown children or there were spouses of their children, living with them.

Rather than delete it (I don't believe he is my missing Robert White), I will be glad to forward the info to anyone who would like to have it. They can email me direct, at texastwin827@yahoo.com, and I will send it to them. No need to "waste" good research info!

I have found a lot of good info on your website, that have made some pieces fall in place and would complete some of your own research.

I recently became aware of these ancestors on my Mother, (Inez Kennedy)side and that her Mother's grandparents, Austin & Amelia Mann, married Frankfort, Ind. Dec.24,1865 died in Lane County, Oregon- Austin died April 1, 1895.Their daughter, Dora Belle Mann (married Columbus Smith 1883 Boliver, MO),(Dora Belle Mann born Hillsburg Indiana 1865) and was my grandmother, Carrie Melissa Smith's Mother. I need to locate the record I have of I believe Amelia's parents, Jerg and Anna Margaret Mohn...Jerg Bernhart Mohn from Baden Wurttomberg, W. Germany. I don't know if I have Anna Margaret's maiden name or where she was from. We must be long lost relatives. It is interesting to find out about the past. My address is Barbara Lentz, P. O. Box 6175, Apache Junction, Arizona but I lived in Girard, Kansas where Dora Belle Mann(Smith) is buried in a country cemetery (Meyers cemetary south of Girard).

Frances Ritchie brn. 1828, daughter of John Ritchie and Sylvannia Sizemore. John Ritchie brn. 1815 Sylvannia Sizemore brn. 1816, married 1832. Most researchers don't name her as a daughter of John and Sylvannia.
I would really like to know her parents.
At the time of marriage John was 17 and Sylvannia was 16,
this is not likely. They lived in Clay Co Ky.
Frances married John Thomas Williams, they are buried in Perry co ky.
She was my 2nd great grandmother................Kenny.

Who is your biggest MYSTERY ANCESTOR? baseborn child of Sarah Elizabeth Sinah Hogg
Comments:
Hello:

This is a genealogy question, (brickwall issue) that is over two hundred years old, that you might have the answer too. Below is information from the court records for Russell County, VA regarding Sarah Elizabeth Hogg (AKA Sina, Sena, Sinah). This is a ancestor or person of interest you have listed on rootsweb.com. Please follow along. We may be cousins. My ggggrandfather John Woods born 1791 is said to have walked from his home to Claiborne Co., TN while a lad of 14 in 1805. I think this is the "baseborn child" of Sarah Elizabeth Hogg for the following reasons:

1. I find no other child born in area on border of VA,NC, and TN with name John, Jon, or Jonathan Wood or Woods for any years close to 1791..
2. Family history as given by his son Elijah Woods states that he walked 75-100 miles on the wilderness trail while just a lad in 1805 to Claiborne Co., TN.
3. I find mention of James Hogg (brother of Sarah Elizabeth Hogg) on court records for Claiborne Co., TN in 1804.
4. Family history states that John Woods was apprenticed as blacksmith in Claiborne Co., TN.
5. Russell Co., VA records list John Wood(s) as father of said "baseborn child" that would have been born 1791. See below. I have all the records if you need them.
6. Family history does not mention parents of John Woods (1791-1867). He is listed as orphaned as a lad, but this is better than admitting to "baseborn" parentage. At age 14, I would suspect that support would stop and he would be booted out of home.


The only way to prove that this John Woods is the baseborn child mentioned in Russell Co., VA records would be through DNA testing to determine common ancestry with either female or male descendents of Sarah Elizabeth Hogg. I don't know very much about DNA testing. I will be willing to bear the costs of all testing. I think it can be done with a swab from the inside of the mouth.

Would you be a direct descendent (by blood either maternal or fraternal) of Sarah Elizabeth Hogg and would you be willing to have your DNA tested and compared with mine?

Your results and privacy will be respected in any way you desire. Please reply to this email at charles.w.woods@comcast.net or call Chuck Woods 231-744-0819 or give me your email or number and I will respond.

Thanks in advance,

Chuck Woods

I read that you were concentrating on your maternal line when you first began your research. Is this because you had a mitochondrial DNA test? I just did, so I'm researching my maternal line, too.

Hi,
I am the great Granddaughter of George Washington Hall.
(Dennis C. Hall is my dad's dad.) I just found your Fantastic work! I am very excited to find so much info on my family. I have been researching my ancestry for over 2 years, and it is very tedious work. I look forward to seeing what you have to offer. I have all the info on Dennis and Cornelia's children. All have passed, except their baby girl, Nola Fay. (now in her 70's...lol) I look forward to hearing from you. Betty Jo

Your cross indexing the Levi Pennington(s) is about the closest I have come to being able to delinieate the Levi Pennington as father of Minatree Lincoln Pennington. I am still looking for the Abel Pennington who is the father of Levi Pennington.

If anyone has any suggestions as to how to continue sifting through the Levi/Abel chain, I really appreciate the efforts being made.
Thank you again.

Comments:
Barbara was my dad's mother. Her parents were Hillard and Millie(Smith) Smith. Her paternal grandparents were Alexander and Mary (Ashley) Smith, maternal grandparents were William Medford and Martha (Ashley)- twin to Mary - Smith. She was born c. 1885. She married Elhanon Jent in 1916, but I find no record of a marriage prior to that. She had two children, Hillard and Millie, and both used the Smith name. There was a rumor that my dad's "real" father was Andrew Porter of W. Va. Any knowledge of this lady would be greatly appreciated. Note: We are connected to the Combs family tree when Alicia Combs marries Rev. Richard Smith c.1771.

I can't believe I just found your site just this morning, I have had Ancestor.com for almost 4 years now. I see you have on your family tree the HAMPTONs, from LETCHER Co. Kentucky. My Grand-mother is Anna May HAMPTON, daughter of Richard B. HAMPTON (AKA- Richmond)& Nancy SUMNER.. Richard is the son of Solomon HAMPTON & Margaret "Peggie" MAGGARD..
Solomon is the son of William Turner HAMPTON & Mary Profitt.. William is the son of Thomas HAMPTON & Abigail Laws., an so on....
My Grand-mother Anna HAMPTON married Archie JONES from Claiborne Tennessee, But they lived in Letcher where my father was born. Archie was a coal miner, who died in 1921. I was told Anna died a few years later. But I can find no record.

Too, my computer crashed and I didn't have backup, soooo I'm gonna have to start over.

Comments:
You have done alot of work, was interested in Chief White
Cloud where connection came in. We have Chief Red Bird in our family line, believe it comes in with Combs family.
Delila Jones married my G.G.Grandfather 1838 Rockingham,NC
I was told by a Pee Dee Historian that our Delila was the daughter of Chief Lewis Jones of the Pee Dee. and since the
marriage was in Rockingham,NC it is likely they are Pee Dee. No one will assist me in retreving papers.please excuse mispelling.I don't want anything from the tribe, just our genealogy. at 66, with a pace maker, feel my time is limited.
We also have a connection with Iowa Tribe through Spoonamore family. Brashears- Choctaw.Have you checked the list at Carlisle Indian School? it is very interesting.
Blessings. Yona

I have a lot of family history on my families, but would love to hear from someone that remembers Jack, John, Juanita and Jerry Palmer. Their mother was Nannie (Lane) Palmer. I wish I could find people that knew my Uncle Hagar Lane, he was married to Pansy (Wallace) Lane, and they lived in Harlan most of their lives. My great gramma Bell Lane was in the book "Hell in Harlan" and the whole family lived through those coalmine war days. Some of my mothers friends were Francis Fox, Ellen and Johnathan Madden, Dora Shoemate, Fred Pennington, and many more. They are probably dead now, but I have some pictures and stories that my mom passed on to me. My Aunt Roxy (Butler) Cox lived just across the line in Pennington Gap, Va.

Comments:
I knew that my great great great grandparents were cousins and descendants of William Morris and Elizabeth Stipps/Stepps, but never could fill in the blanks. I've done a great deal of research on William. The site really helped me out. My great great great grandparents were John D. Morris and Sarah Morris. Their son, Earnest, was my great great grandfather. He married Elleweziah Querry in Nicholas County. Three of their sons--McHenry, Charles, and my great grandfather, William Walter Morris, moved to Fayette County. William Walter was born in 1877 and worked as a coal miner. He died pretty early in life, during the late 1920's, so my grandfather never knew too much about him. William Walter was married to Minnie Lee Flint. Minnie remarried to a man named McClannahan, but he died in the 1950's. My grandfather, Lester Melvin Morris, died in 1973, so I could never ask him questions and my aunts and uncles had no clue. I'd be glad to provide any information that I have on my Morrises. Thanks again, Kaci Foster-Veazey

Comments:
Johnson Monroe's father died before he was born, in Colonial times a child was considered an orphan if its father died even if the mother was still living. In the Lunenburg Ct. VA Order Book 3 1754-1755 page 57 the Church Wardens Cumberland Parish bind out John Monroe (could this be short for Johnson?)orphan of John Monroe decd to Owen Franklin. As an adult Johnson owned property that adjoined some property owned by Owen Franklin. My speculation is that Johnson mother was related to the Franklins and that Owen took the 11 or 12 year old boy as an apprintice or to learn a trade.

Comments:
Enjoyed your site. I too have been researching VA families, particularly Horton family. I believe that John Wesley Franklin, son of Elizabeth J. Neel and James Franklin, married Mary Francis Horton. Mary Francis Horton was the daughter of James Harvey Horton and Amanda C. Kilgore. She then married Henry R. Mitchell. James Harvey, son of William Horton and Francis Pendleton, had two children: Mary Francis Horton, and Hiram K. Horton. Hiram K. Horton is my great grandfather---he moved to MN by 1920. Hoping I am on right track! Thanks for sharing your info. Doris

She had one full blooded brother, Richmond McIntyre, born around 1894.

I descend from Stephem Caudill/Caudle's son, Benjamin. My ancestors went into Anson Co. NC, and then into Decatur and Henderson Co. TN (Scotts Hill area). My husband's Fields family were in Stokes Co. NC., Harlan and Breathitt Co. KY.
I have found where many of the Letcher Co. Caudill's also connect to the Fields/ Back famiies in KY. Many of both families are also found in other KY counties.

Dear Dan Mohr,

What an amazing site.
Thank you for all your efforts.

I found several ancestors going back,
and I think I am beginning to untangle some
of the "Bell" mysteries, such as the relationships
between Frank B. Bell, and Hansford Bell, and so on.

I do have some information that could be added to your
file, if you would like. . . and I am curious about
our relationship, which I could not figure out . . .
but it looks like the Bells and the Mohrs are connected.

Information to add concerns

Luvy Bell: Actually, Lucy Bernadette Webb Bell, and her family for generations . . . (she is my grandmother, deceased).

Marriage partner and a bit of family of Frank B. Bell,
which extends back into Virginia history. . .

Let me know if you are interested.

Jim Saxon

Our grandparents and several infant relatives (Patterson) are buried there. A search by relatives from several states failed to find any of them on a recent visit.

Someone, somewhere, has to have some information about the buriels there.

Comments:
Your website is great! My great grandfather is Martin Ramey born in VA approx. 1857 - raised in Pike Co. Ky. His parents are unknown. It was first thought that his father was Charles Ramey and mother was Nancy Case. Martin married Elmira Bartley on April 11, 1887 in Pike Co. Ky. There is an Alexander Martin Ramey who married a Mary Bartley (born Oct. 29, 1857 in Pike Co. KY) in 1880 in Minnesota. This Alexander Martin Ramey's father was Charles Ramey and mother Nancy Case. This is why I believe my Martin Ramey's parents are not Charles and Nancy.

Who is your biggest MYSTERY ANCESTOR? Martin Ramey
Comments:
My grandfather was Miles Ramey (born 8-3-1895 in Pike Co. KY. His father was Martin Ramey (born between 1845 and 1855 in Wise Co. VA) and married Elmira Bartley on 4-11-1887 in Pike Co. Ky.

I am not certain that his parents are Charles Ramey and Nancy (Case) Ramey. I have ordered Martin's Pension and War Records (was in the Battle of Little Big Horn) in hopes of getting his exact dob, parents names, death date and location (ordered 8 weeks ago). There are many errors on the various Ramey Trees. Andrew is one of Charles and Nancy's children, but I am not certain Martin is. I have a d.c. for a Martin Ramey who died in Douglas Oregon in 1935 whose parents where Charles and Nancy.

I saw this on Roots Web. Can you tell me where you got the information for Williams Date of Birth. I hope it is on a tombstone or written. But I understand his tombstone has been in a shed for quite a while and is not even in the cemetery where he is buried. That when they did something to the cemetery many years ago they did not know where it came from and therefore did not put it back. I think he was suppose to be buried on the first row with Elizabeth and Benjamind Bolling, her father.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Benjamin Bolling and William Short are my husbands ancestors. Ollie who married John Mullins is his great great great grandparents.

Who is your biggest MYSTERY ANCESTOR? Eliza Jane Franklin
Comments:
I am researching my Hall side and I am related to Eliza Jane Franklin Hall married to James Preston Hall. Their son Englebert Hall had a son named Everett who then had a son named Robert Leroy Hall (my grandfather). I have been told through my grandfather that Eliza Franklin was indian. I was wondering if you might know if that is true and if so what kind? I really enjoyed the picture of her. I had one similar to that. My grandfather gave it to me and told me he thought it was her. They used to call her "Little Granny". Please email at kyangel520@hotmail.com if u have any information on her or her family, and possibly if they was indian or not. thank u so much!

Who is your biggest MYSTERY ANCESTOR? Allen Hall
Comments:
Allen Hall is my ggg grandfather. He was born 1829 in Perry Co,Ky. He was married to Hannah Yonts on Apr. 10,1847. Their children include: Solomon, Mary, John, Lewis, Susan, Preston, Matilda, Malinda, William, Jarvey(my line), Harvey,and Louisa. He was later married to Jemima Osborne. All the research I've done and I have two conflicting lines after him. One line says that his parents are Jonathan Hall and Mary Sanders and the other says that his parents are William J. Hall and Margaret Johnson. If anyone has conclusive evidence as to the correct one I'd appreciate any and all help.

Who is your biggest MYSTERY ANCESTOR? Bad Lewis Hall and William C. Hall
Comments:
I've been searching for the ancestors of "Bad Lewis" Hall for years. He married Rhoda Bentley and Polly Ann Anderson and had children with a woman named Mary Mullins. I can not prove his ancestors. I have found some newspaper articles referring to Bad Lewis Hall and his death, however. In one article, the author is quoted as saying that he talked with Bad Lewis Hall and that Lewis told him that he was a near relative of Bad Talt Hall; I don't know how Lewis connects to Talt Hall. Also I have found another child of Lewis' named Lewis Hall, Jr. that was killed in a shoot out in McDowell Co. W.Va in 1891 with Samuel Steel and his son, Hiram, who were both killed also. Lewis escaped with minor injuries.

I have the names of the other children of Lewis and their spouses if you are interested. I know that alot of people use your site and list it in their sources.

Also, I have an ancestor named William C. Hall, who is the f/o Andy Hall who married Susie Isaacs and they lived in Dry Creek, Ky. I think that you have Andy listed as the s/o William D. Hall and Louanza Isaacs. (This is another Andy. Bill Dee Hall's son Andy was killed in 1882. I have newspaper articles referring to this murder also if you are interested.)

Anyways, the Andy Hall who married Susie Isaacs, was the s/o William C. Hall and Mary Polly Johnson (d/o Elisha Johnson and Elizabeth Mullins of Floyd County, Kentucky) William C. "Billy" Hall and Mary Polly Johnson - Hall are buried in the cemetery across the road from Andy and Susie Isaacs - Hall in Dry Creek, Knott County, Kentucky. Thanks!

You've got a good site and I applaud you for it!

Who is your biggest MYSTERY ANCESTOR? Alexander HALL
Comments:
My Alexander HALL was born about 1819 in Virginia (county unknown). He married Elizabeth L. MOUTRAY, daughter of William MOUTRAY and Mary FITZHUGH, about 1842 in Jackson Co., Missouri. She was born March 24, 1826 in Logan Co., Kentucky. They had three children, all born in Blue Township, Jackson Co., Missouri: Mary A. born about 1845 (marriage unknown); William Lee born July 2, 1847 who married 1) Virginia TAYLOR and 2) Frances Ann MCPHERSON; and Julia Jane born September 5, 1850 who married John BATEMAN. They were in Jackson Co., Missouri in 1850 and in McKinney, Collin Co., Texas in 1860. He enlisted in Company B 16th Regiment Texas Volunteers under Col. William FITZHUGH, his wife抯 cousin, in April 1861. He only served about six months and then was discharged on account of his eyesight. He went totally blind about five years before he died. They have remained elusive in the 1870 census but may have been back in Jackson Co. as his wife, daughter, son-in-law, and daughter-in-law are listed on an 1873 membership list for the Blue Ridge Baptist Church in Grandview. In 1880 they are living with their widowed daughter, Julia BATEMAN, and her children in Fort Worth, Tarrant Co., Texas. Alexander stated that both his parents were born in Virginia. Elizabeth states in her Texas Confederate Widows Pension Application that Alexander died in March 1884 but no record of his death or burial has been found.

There is some question if he or his father lived on a reservation in Oklahoma. I know I am Cherokee Indian but how much is to be examined. I have seen the 1910 census for my grandfather Bert that says he was born in Oklahoma but that is all I know. Since Oklahoma has no records of his birth I can't be sure what to think. I hope this mystery is to be found. If only I could get a copy of his birth records the mystery would probably be solved... barb kleiva (slone)

My mother was born in McRoberts, Letcher Co., Kentucky. Her father's family, Standifer (various spellings) was in Wise Co., Va. when it was formed. She descends from the Moses Adams line of Adams, John Boggs and Kizziah Miller, Jonathan Hay(e)s and Melvinah Short (d/o Daniel Short and Leah Baker) I have never been able to learn who Leah Baker Short ancestors were. I have also been working on a large file of familes that descend from that area primarily thru various census (1850-1880) records. Also have the Letcher County Kentucky Families text. My grandfather moved his family (as did many of that region) to Washington state in 1947. I have visited the Kentucky, Virginia area where my ancestors lived and died and hope to return again soon.

Thank you so much for sharing your web site and your wealth of information. I noticed when reading about the Ira Mullins family that Ira's mother's maiden name was Potter.

I am of the same Bell family; I am a descendant of Your Joseph Bell's brother David Bell. I refer to him as capt. David Bell (1722-1780). Are there actually "Bell" surnamed men still in your side of the family? If so would be good if they could enter their DNA with the family Tree people on the net. Would be helpful in further establishing links to other related family. I have found a Thomas bell family in Pa that carries the same DNA, emaning they are related, probably through William Bell the immigrant or his father or grandfather--back into the 1600's as William was born c 1680... Let me hear from you

Just wanted to say I have really enjoyed your site. David Hall was my GGGrandfather... I have just recently started my search. His daughter Mary Jane Hall was my GreatGrandmother.

I know all the names of the husbands that Mary Jane had and the children by those three husbands, but it seems Dave is going to be harder to track... I do know five of his children.

Karenhappick was married to John "Big John" Hall, son of Jonathan Hall and Mary Sanders.
They were the parents of Jonathan Hall, born on December 22, 1855, in Letcher County.
Jonathan married Mary "Polly" Meade. Their son, John Henry, born in 1875 in Letcher County, was my Grandfather.
Cannot locate any information about my Great-great Grandmother Hall except that she married my gr-gr Grandfather Hall and had eight children.
Would like to know who are her parents; why she is not listed as the wife of my gr-gr grandfather after 1862--did they divorce or did she die? Where is she buried? Did she have siblings? Just anything anyone can share with me. Her first name is very similar to one of Job's daughters which would lead me to think her parents were very religious and her father was perhaps a preacher.

I have really enjoyed your website. I am searching for any info on my great grandfather. My grandmother was Lola Akemon Combs, married to Wade Combs and lived in LetcherCo. at McRoberts. If anyone who reads this knows anything about him or who he married I would love to find out. These mountain areas are somehow close to my heart. I hope to eventually come there and go back to my grandmothers house.
Although she is gone I would like to go to the cemetery where she was buried. All I know about the cemetery is that the graves are in layers on a big hill. It should be somewhere in Letcher Co. There is a Lees Famous Recipe almost across from it. If anyone knows what the name of the cemetery is please email me. Thanks so much for all the info and anything you know about my family will be appreciated. You did a great job!!!!!!!!!!

In 1860 Johnson CO., KY census you can find Rebecca along with her husband and children And if you search marriage records for Johnson CO they have her married to Andrew Jackson Rice on Aug. 19, 1848.
So is she the same one with the parents of the exact same name or our we looking at something wrong ? Cause one of their daughters married my g/g grandfather?????????

I have searched for the connection to Sir Richard COX and Joshua/John COX who married Mary Rankin.
I have found alot of opinions but no actual documentation.
Joshua COX'S Will 1747 in PA was altered by Siemon COX to John COX. What I want and may never find is a marriage document for Joshua COX and Mary Rankin and information on their parents that actually mentions Parents & Children together. While I can entertain the Sir Richard & Richard COX Bishop of Ely,I would rather have the proof, I am not big on hear say. DO YOU HAVE PROOF? Robin
I have my COX line from Joshua COX who married Mary Neal in 1769 in stokes county to the present. I think not 100% postive althought others are that I with others have found the graves of Joshua COX & his wife Mary Neal COX.

Hello friend,
My name is Sharon Case. I have been searching for over a year for further proof of my grandparents: Eli and Rebecca Johnson Johnson. Finally, I ran across your info. However, I need more. Where did you verify that Rebecca Johnson Married to Eli Johnson was the daughter of Daniel Boone Johnson and Lina Hampton? Do you have more info on Daniel Boone Johnson or Lina Hampton? To be honest with you, my search has led me to my grandparents: Eli and Rebecca, being first cousins. Here is how: Daniel Boone Johnson was the son of King David Johnson by one wife, while my other grandfather: David Doc Johnson (aka Dee Johnson) was the son of King David Johnson by another wife! Do you have any info on these lines? I look forward to hearing from you!! Thanks, sharon case sharondcase@aol.com

Who is your biggest MYSTERY ANCESTOR? Hortense Lee (Friley) and her first husband "Buddy" Baker
Comments:
I am coming to the conclusion that I am related somehow distantly to nearly everyone in Letcher County Kentucky. ha ha.

I think your listed "Hortense Calhoun" b. 1860 and my "Hortense Lee" b. 1861 are one in the same person.

Here is why:

Obituary for Mrs Hortense Reynolds sent to me by the Lexington Kentucky Library she died Oct 27, 1943:

Reynolds, Mrs. Hortense, 82 died at 12:15 o抍lock this afternoon at the home of a daughter, Mrs. G.O.Rogers, on the Spurr pike, after an illness of several months. She was a daughter of the late Isaac and Rachel Lee Friley, of Roanoke, Va. Survivors include two other daughters, Mrs. Amanda Triplett, Seattle, Wash., and Mrs. Audrey Potter, Whitesburg; five sons, Luther Baker, Whitesburg; Irvin and Elijah Baker both of Keene, Va; James M. Reynolds, Detroit, Mich., and Coleman Reynolds, Fairbanks, Alaska and 18 grand children. Her body was removed to Kerr Brothers funeral home.
__________________

Funeral services for Mrs. Hortense Reynolds who died yesterday at the home of a daughter, Mrs. G.O.Rogers on the Spurr pike, will be held at 2 p.m. Friday at Kerr Brother funeral home. Dr. J Archer Gray, pastor of Everybody抯 Church will officiate, and burial will be in the Lexington cemetery.
____________
Mrs. Reynolds, 82, a daughter of the late Isaac and Rachel Lee Friley of Roanoke, VA. Survivors include two other daughters, Mrs. Amanda Triplett, Seattle Washington; and Mrs. Audrey Potter, Whitesburg; five sons: Luther Baker, Whitesburg; Irvin and Elijah Baker, both of Keene VA; James M. Reynolds, Detroit Mich., and Coleman Reynolds, Fairbanks Alaska, and 18 grand children."

I have stories that she first married "Buddy" Baker who became a lawyer. She divorced him after having several children with him and then married my Joseph Coleman Reynolds Sr. b. 1847 and had several children with Joe as well. (Joe was previously married to Mary Manerva (Morgan). Hortense married Joe Reynolds SR after their second set of children were born.

I am trying to prove that Hortense's "Buddy" Baker is Solomon Emory Baker. I wont list it here but Joseph and Manerva Reynolds are listed next to Hortense and her baby Irvin Baker in 1880.

Here is Hortense living with whom I believe is her mother and stepfather. I don't know where her "Buddy" Baker is other than still living with Elijah Willis Baker and Mary (Yonts)in 1880. I imagine Hortense and Buddy Baker married shortly after 1880. I wish there was an 1890 Census.

1880 Letcher KY
#328 Bates Henry C. 35 K K K farmer
Rachel 37 V V V wife
Marget 06 K K V daughter
James M. 03 K K V son
Belle D. 12/1879 <1 K K V daughter
Bates John 27 K K K brother
Martha 25 K K K sister
James 17 K K K brother
* Lee Hortence 19 V V V servent
Irven 12/1879 <1 K K V boarder

The children below here match Hortense's children with "Buddy" Baker:

Millstone District 1900 Ky Census
172/173 BAKER,
Solomon Feb 1856 44 KY KY KY Attorney At Law
Helen C. Jul 1855 44 VA VA VA (m. 6yrs, 0 children)
Luther Jan 1882 18 VA VA KY Farm Laborer
Elijah May 1884 16 KY KY KY Farm Laborer
Clarence Jan 1887 13
Millard Jun 1890 9

Here is who I believe is her son Luther whose 1/2 sister Marjorie Lee (Reynolds) is living in his household. Hortense is buried with Margie (Reynolds) and George Owen Rogers in the Lexington KY Cemetery.

1920 Kentucky, Letcher County,
Fleming, ED 67, Sheets 5A and 5B

Margie Reynolds, SISTER, 20, Ky, Va, Va


Letcher County Cemetery books (page 89) as follows:

Listed as Lewis Cemetery instead of the Fields and Day Cemetery as on the internet sitehttp://www.rootsweb.com/~kyletch/cemetery/records/whi.htm#13
Elman L. Baker, Feb. 26, 1882, Sept. 14, 1947 (Luther?)
Hester M. Baker, Sept. 22, 1887, June 25, 1972
Solomon E. Baker, Feb. 7, 1856, Jan. 19, 1923 (Buddy?)
Helen C. Baker, July 1, 1855, June 16, 1918 (the "other woman"?)

Thank you for your help and hopefully you can update your data base for my direct line.

children of Joseph Reynolds Sr b. 1847 and his second wife Hortese Lee (Friley) b. 1861:
Joseph Coleman Reynolds b. 1892, Augie, James M., Margie, Amanda and David Coulson Reynolds (died age 2). (Joe b. 1892 is my direct line and you have listed with Manerva. Hortense is most likely his mother)

children of Joseph Coleman Reynolds Sr. b. 1847 and his first wife Mary Manerva (Morgan).
Albrittan (died age 5), Morgan T Reynolds, Kentucky (Reynolds) Johnson, Maryland (Reynolds) Johnson, William Cody Reynolds (Billy)

Hortense Lee (Friley) and her first husband "Buddy" Baker's children are: Irvin, Luther, Elijah, Clarence and Millard Baker. Buddy Baker was possibly married three times and I hope to find out if someone knows if he is indeed Solomon Emory Baker. I am thinking his and Hortense's son Luther Baker's birth or death record might give me this proof.

I have the death records and more for Joseph, Hortense, Margie and George Rogers, J. Coleman Jr, Augie, Morgan T. and Billy.

Would love to hear from anyone related to these families.I have several oldie photos including and early 1900 photo of Hortense's children and one labeled "Millard Baker's children"

Comments:
Dan, Good to see your new Highland Home Page. Reviewing the kids of James C. Franklin(1819-1893)& Marg."Peggy"Quillen, I noticed they all have exact birth & death dates--like they came out of someone's family bible. I would love to find a source for those. His daughter Julia(1849-1890) who is my grandmother is shown as Julia A.My dad had a handwritten copy of Julia & her Husband James Elbert Templeton's family bible which listed her as "Julie Queen". I recently found a copy of their marriage papers @ the VA State Library which includes (1)the marriage license for James E. Templeton & Julia Q.Franklin August 3,1870 Signed by M.B.Wood,(2) Certificate to obtain a marriage license-- James E. Templeton 24 parents Wm. & Frances Templeton, Julie Q.Franklin 21 parents James C. & Margaret A. Franklin and(3)a statement--married at residence of J.C.F. by T.H. Franklin August 3, 1870. T.H. was Julie Queen's older brother.
If you send me a snail mail address, I'd be glad to send you a copy.
Again, thanks for your selfless service to all of us searching for the "holy grail" such as documentation for "Old Abe". Keep up the good work & God bless.

Comment to your file on Andrew Abslom and Suffronie (Dotson) Adams. They also had a daughter named Martha who married William Riley "Billy" Tyree Son of Benjamin and Cathania (Stidham). They had 4 daughters Lora, Cora, Carrie, and Mattie. Carrie was my Grandmother. She was married to John Lucas (son of William and Susan Sexton Lucas). Both Billy and Martha are buried at Ice which is some where around Mayking.
Also when I was looking at your photos on yur site I noticed when I was reading about "Nic" you mentioned that he was a "GandyDancer". Do you know what the term means and why he and people of the same profession were known by ths term? Let me know if you do or if you want to know. I use to work for a Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI. And out in their Village they have a recreation of a 1885 Roundhouse. And it was one of the places I use to stand and talk to people. And people ask about GandyDancers quite often.

Comments:
I am the gggranddaughter of Owen Franklin and Mary Neal. Their daughter, Rachel Louise Franklin m Hickory Carter was my ggrandmother. Ann Patton Carter m. Pierce Giles and d/o Lou and Hickory was my grandmother. I haven't been able to get info about Owen Franklin's birthplace nor his parents name. I heard he and 2 brothers were orphaned, came to work for Hezekiah Neal and married his daughter, Mary. I am very familiar with Franklin Cemetery because I grew up in the community called "Purchase Ridge" where it is located in Scott Co.

I was elated when I found the information. Surely would appreciate any help you could give me with this family. I will gladly share info beginning with Ann Patton Carter & Pierce Giles children, gchildren, and ggrandchildren.

My grandmother, Ann Patton Carter Giles died when my daddy was eleven years old. All family pictures, except one I have of Lou Franklin were destroyed in a fire that destroyed her home. My g/aunt had the 1 picture and she gave it to me.

Thanks again.

Am also very interested in the books you mentioned from geaneological society. Any idea if there are still copies? Thanks for you help.......Sandy

Comments:
My grand father was William M Fannin married to Mary Essie Butcher. My great grandfather was Andrew Jackson Fannin married to Josephine Franklin. It took me a while, but I finally realized that there was a mistake on the 1880 Johnson co. Ky census. They have Elizabeth Franklin listed as Elizabeth Fannin mother in law. Now I hope to add some of the Franklin family to our history. We had a picture of Andrew Jackson Fannin and Josephine Franklin. Josephine had dark hair, dark complexion, and black eyes. Looking forward to hearing from you. Anna M. Fannin Hager Dorman

Who is your biggest MYSTERY ANCESTOR? Abraham Franklin(~1753-~1845)
Comments:
Dan, Thanks for your selfless endeavors.
As to our hard to find "Abe"--my son Jack K. got hold of a letter from a Rosemary Morrison, gd/o James C.Franklin & Margaret"Peggy"Quillen via Nancy Jane Franklin and Samuel J. Morrison relating a visit to Johnson Co,KY kin including Abel,Jr (1833-1920)'s last surviving daughter-in-law , Minerva-widow of Mac Donald Franklin. She said "Old Abe (b1753) was a logger and rafter who lived to be 92 or 93 years old. He & his wife are buried in the Gobel Cemetary out from Van Lear near Paintsville. Abel(b1797) was buried about 1877 and his wife Elizabeth Cynthia was buried about 1880. Minerva said that Eliz. outlived Abe of Philadelphia 35 years.
I realize that oral history often gets garbled as its repeated time after time but one of these days we're going to pin this down and I think the documented facts will closely approximate the oral history.
Thanks again for your great work.

My Great Grandfather was, according to stories I've heard, hung Mar 28th, 1883. I have yet to document this, or to find the cause of why he was hung. He could have been an innocent man punished for the crime someone else committed.
I am trying desperately to find the pertinent information I need, to either document that he was guilty, or prove he was innocent. Mary (I Love you Great Grandpa)
