Hi - any Kuykendall Johnson Co. researchers out there besides Mara and Bill
Oliver? Need some help!! Have been researching the Kuykendall family back to
Van-Kuykendall in NY. Would like input on the following information and
Listing the families I have without dates for right now:
Joseph Kuykendall, Jr./Mary Polly Taylor m in Christian Co., KY came to Johnson
Co., IL abt 1814-15
James Moore Kuykendall/Lydia Dean Cooper/Lydia (Lidy) Cooley West
William Harrison Kuykendall/Lilia Cockran
Andrew J. Kuykendall/Cynthia Simpson
Unknow female m Mr. Smith
Questions: When did Mary Taylor Kuykendall die and where is she buried? I
assumed she had died when Joseph m 2nd Sarah (Sally) Cooper bef or abt 1822.
Some researchers believe Joseph/Mary were divorced. Has anyone found a record
to validate this? Does Vienna have divorce records for that time period?
Most researchers do not record William Harrison as s/o Joseph. Supposedly, they
were the only Kuykendall family in Johnson Co. William Harrison was b 1812 and
was too young to be Josephs brother. This is a questionable connection.
Others record Lila Cockran Kuykendall as a dau of Joseph when Lila Kuykendall m
George W. Brazel 10 Nov 1842 in Johnson Co. Believe this is incorrect. She was
the widow of William Harrison Kuykendall.
There were Kuykendalls in Gallatin Co., IL and believe they were cousins of
Joseph. Joseph was in Gallatin for a brief period 1815-16 - signer of petition
for repeal of an act concerning the jurisdiction of Justice of the Peace General
Assembly. Some believe Bellasant who m Peter Smith in Gallatin 31 Jul 1833 is
the dau of Joseph. Bellasant could be connected to Lewis and Robert of
Gallatin, sons of Benjamin. Believe Lewis and Robert are cousins of Joseph.
Others record her as Mary - (named after her mother). In early Johnson Co
records, you find Joseph, Philander and Stephen Kuykendall. Believe Joseph and
Philander were brothers. Stephen and William Kuykendall were recorded in KY
records in the same area as Josephs relatives. Have not made a connection for
them. According to court records Hardin Kuykendall was connected to John
Crenshaw who ran the Old Slave House in Gallatin. This Kuykendall could have
been in Gallatin or KY.
Joseph/Sarah (Sally) Cooper
Elizabeth (Betsy) Kuykendall/Giles Benjamin Taylor
Lydia Kuykendall/James Peterson
Louisa Kuykendall/William H. Taylor
Frances (Fannie) Kuykendall/William Dean Harper
Susan A. Kuykendall/Elijah Monroe Hood
Unknown Male b 1836
Joseph (Josh) C. Kuykendall/Martha (Marthy) C. Kendall
Supposedly, Sarah Cooper was the dau of John Cooper who may have been Cherokee.
Two of Josephs daus from his 2nd marriage m two of his Taylor nephews from his
According to bios in Johnson Co., Joseph was b in NC s/o Joseph b in NC and they
migrated to KY where Joseph Sr. died. Have not been able to validate a death
for Joseph Sr. in KY. Believe Joseph, Jr. is the s/o of the following Joseph -
children named in will:
Joseph b abt 1752 Anson, NC s/o John Kuykendall/Rebecca Hardin. Wife unknown
except for one dau. According to Esther Calhoun Loves diary, his mother
married Joseph and had a dau Malinda who married Elihu P. Calvert. She is in
Josephs will. Joseph and Esther separated or divorced after 18 months. Joseph
died Pulaski Co., AR 30 Apr 1828. Believe Joseph may have m 3 or 4 times.
Mary (Polly) Kuykendall b abt 1776 prob Anson Co., NC m Abraham
Rebeckah Kuykendall b abt 1780 prob Tryon Co., NC or York Co., SC m
Simon Kuykendall b abt 1782 prob Washington Co., NC (later TN) m
Sarah Thompson/Betsy Thompson
James M. Kuykendall b abt 1782 prob Washington Co. NC/TN - dont
believe he married. Named sister Rebeckah Stuart and nephew Champ
Stuart in will.
Joseph Kuykendall, Jr. b bet 1780-86 d bef 1850 m Mary Taylor/Sara
Philander Kuykendall b abt 1792 prob TN m Dolly Murray
Dempsey Kuykendall b abt 1793-94 prob KY m Sarah Lindsey
Benjamin Kuykendall b abt 1799 prob Christian Co., KY m Elizabeth
Malinda Kuykendall b abt 1800-02 Caldwell Co. or Christian Co., KY m
Elihu P. Calvert
Josephs will is very interesting. He freed three of his slaves and Mark
Kuykendall (slave) killed his youngest son Benjamin within a month of Josephs
Questions: Has anyone found land records for Joseph, Jr. in Johnson Co.
Specifically, after 1828 where land from Pulaski, AR might have been recorded in
Johnson Co? Does anyone know exactly when he died and where he is buried in
Johnson Co? Did he have a will or estate settlement?
The above locations of birth for Joseph Sr.s children are recorded according to
migration of the family: NY>NJ>VA>NC>SC>TN>KY>AR>MO>IL> and some went on to
Trying to solve a couple of problems, but possible connection is:
Luer Jacobsen Van Kuykendall/Grietje Tack>Matheus Van Kuykendall/Jannetje
Westvael>John Kuykendall/Rebecca Hardin>Joseph Kuykendall/unknown (Esther
Calhoun Love for 1 child)>Joseph Kuykendall/Mary Taylor/Sarah Cooper.
John Kuykendall/Rebecca Hardin had:
Simon, Benjamin and Joseph Sr. are proven sons of John/Rebecca through land
transactions in NC.
Hope this is not confusing. Would like comments, questions and hopefully some
Have a letter written by Joseph Benton Kuykendall s/o Andrew J./Cynthia Simpson

GROUP OF EX SHERIFFS OF JOHNSON COUNTY
From The Vienna Democrat, November 9, 1906
Above we produce a likeness of seven Ex-Sheriffs and our present Sheriff. We
fell that this is a remarkable group of men, as it presents an unbroken chain
of officials since the year 1870, with the exception of the face of Jas. F.
Whitehead who was our Sheriff during the years 1894 to 1898, and who failed to
come to this reunion on last Saturday, although invited to be present. he now
lives in Tunnel Hill, township.
A. J. Gray, was born in this county in the year 1843. Was elected Sheriff in
1870 and again in 1872, serving two terms of two years each. He now lives in
this city, and has never lived outside the county, and is yet an active
citizen. He is one of the boys who wore the blue.
Jas. H. Carter, is another native of Johnson county, and was born in 1844.He
was elected Sheriff in 1876, also having two terms to his credit. He served
his country during the great conflict of �62 to �65, and is now one of the
leading business men of our city.
Hon. W. C. Allen was born in this city in the year 1844 and was elected
Sheriff in 1878 and served two terms of two years each. He now lives in
Washington, D. C., but was here recently on a visit to old friends. He also
saw service for the preservation of the Union in the sixties.
Mark Whiteaker, a citizen of Vienna, was born in 1835. He answered his
country�s call during the sixties and served faithfully and well. In 1882,
the people of our county elected him Sheriff and he served the county for a
term of four years, making a splendid record as a worth official.
J. H. Frizzell, present mayor of our city is the only Democrat in this list of
ex-Sheriffs. He was born in 1852, and was elected Sheriff in 1886, and served
the county for term of four years, making a splendid official.
R. R. Ridenhower was born in Goreville Township in the year 1867 and is just
now in the zenith of his manhood. He resides on a farm two miles southeast of
this city and is prospering. He was elected Sheriff in the year 1890 and
served a term of four years.
M. A. Hankins, another of the list who saw service during the sixties was born
in 1845. He was elected Sheriff in 1898, and served one term. He is now a
farmer, owning considerable valuable land in this county, beside has interests
in Oklahoma, where his family reside and he divides his time here and there.
J. L. Veach our present Sheriff was born on a farm three miles north of this
city in the year 1873. He was elected Sheriff four years ago, and has made an
efficient officer. He now owns the farm on which he was born, and besides a
home in this city where he resides.
I read an article on Richard Brown and His wife, Nancy Palmer Brown and
their children in the
Parkers History of Johnson County. The article was submitted by Arthus
Nobles of Anna, IL.
I would like to know if there is anyone during research on this family. I
have reason to believe
that this is one of my lines. Will gladly exchange information.
I am searching for the following Morris and his parents.
William Jackson Morris Born-Jan 1,1816. He had the following
1)Lemuel Pressley Morris B-Nov.9,1856
3)Mary Ann Morris
5)Hesekiah Ferrell Morris
William J. Morris help buy property for his sister Rebecca
Morris when her husband, Richard neely Simmons, died March 1,1868.
Rebecca morris was born April 1,1825 so was too old to be
Thank you for any help.
I was looking at the Johnson County Heritage Journal for Jan 1998. on page 6
is reprinted one of the entries in The PORTRAIT and BIOGRAPHICAL REVIEW (1897)
of Johnson Co (and others) states. The entry is for that of Hon. Isaac A. J.
I will type it up here. I want to know if anyone else has information on this
PARKER family? I have several PARKERS that married into the family. One is
Augustus PARKER who married Alice HARVICK (dau of Harrison HARVICK and Frances
E. UTLEY who married in 1857). The time frame works but before I go plugging
anything in I just want to be sure.
Hon. Isaac A. J. PARKER was the son of Moses D. and Louisa Elizabeth Jackson
PARKER, of Tennessee and Alabama, respectively, and was born in Tishomingo Co.
Miss. in 1840..." He was reared and educated in Tippah Co. Miss. and resided
there until the breaking out of the war, when, the family being all strong
sympathizers with the cause of the Union, their property was confiscated and
they were compelled to leave the State. On Oct. 7, 1862, Mr. Parker joined
the Hatcher scouts at Corinth, Miss. and served until the company was
honorably discharged, after which he enlisted in the Mississippi Rangers,
which were soon afterward incorporated with the First Alabama Cavalry. He was
commissioned 1st Lieutenant and served as such until the expiration of his
term of enlistment, Jan. 8, 1864, when he served a few months as recruiting
officer at Memphis, Tenn. In January, 1865 he removed to Illinois and settled
in Johnson County, Purchasing a farm near Vienna, which he has occupied
continuously ever since. He commenced teaching school in Mississippi when
seventeen years of age, and continued to follow that profession until the
breaking out of the war. Soon after locating in Johnson County, he resumed
his former vocati8on and taught school a portion of each year for nineteen
years. In 1858 he was converted and joined the Christian Church at Hickory
Flats, Miss. And in 1882 was ordained a preacher in that denomination. In
December, 1891 he engaged in the sale of agricultural implements, wagons,
carriages, musical instuments, etc., and during all this time he has
superintedned the improvement and culitvation of his farm.
In 1858 he married Miss Jemima J. Clary, a native of Indiana� they have had
ten children, viz: Charles Addison, Lucas, Augustus, Lilly, Mary Oma, Willis,
Beverly, Olive Ethel, Alice Myrtle, and Miletus, deceased. Mr. Parker is a
Democrat in Politics and in 1888 was elected a member of the Thirty-Sixth
General Assembly of the State of Illinois, in which he served with fidelity
Shirley Wolfe acting editor of the Johnson Co. Heritage Journal notes that
Mrs. Parker obit will be published in a later edition.
Cindy said this didn't come through the first time. Perhaps I forgot to paste
it. Sorry folks.

If you do not have the book: THE DESCENDANTS OF JOHANN JACOB KLOTZ IN AMERICA 1690-1990 by RALPH DEAN KLUTTZ, 2157 Upper Palmer Rd., Salisbury, NC 28146, you may wish to order it. It was

With this family in my file (I had forgotten about the Rose mail and hadn't
plugged it in till last night). I can now tie into Whitaker, Burris,
Fairless, more Damron's, Mathis, Thornton and more. I would love to share.
I have been having trouble with my Email for the last 5 days. I
do not know if any thing was sent out. I am interested in talking to
researchers who have Simmons and Kerley surames. Just found out recently
that I am related to Kerley's. Lewis Kerley ad Mary Polly Simmons are my
Great Great Great Grandparents.
I have alot more information on collateral families of this line.

Pleasant Rose 1848-1936
There is also listed a Mary E. Farris Rose 1848-1931
I don't know which is mine yet. Though I think it may be the one's born in
Hope you see something in this info.

I do research on ELKINS especially John Whitney ELKINS b. ca 1744 d.
1838 Clark Co., AR and his son Joshua b. 1792. John Whitney arrived
Johnson Co., ca 1810, moved to Clark Co., AR ca 1825 with son Joshua and
daughter Mary ELKINS LYSENBY, but all of the other children stayed in
Joshua is listed on the 1820 Census in a household of his own. His
wife's name is Ellendor/Ellen. I'm trying to find out her maiden name.
Do you have any suggestion on how I might go about this? Some of John
Whitney ELKINS other children married SMITH, LYSENBY/LISENBEE, OLIVER,
GORE, and GRAVES between 1810-1825.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I saw your posting from May.
I have a S.W. Axley b. ?/ d. Nov. 16, 1896. Married Feb 13, 1887 in Johnson
County, IL to Jardiney Calhaun (known as Florence)
S.W. is buried at West Eden Cemetary in Johnson County along with their
infant son, George. W. b. Apr. 5, 1888, d. July 31, 1888.
They also had Auty b. June 12, 1893.
Auty and Jardiney moved to MO. in ?? Auty met a tragic death in St. Louis in
Do these names mean anything to you? I'm interested in Jardiney; she was a
half sister to William Calvin Watson and Lively Rachael Lemmon. Their
mother's name was Elizabeth and she went by Betsy Faught in 1895.
Would you check your "A History of JohnsonCounty, IL: for possible reference.
Do you live near Johnson County? I know William left IL. around 1900/1901
and went to MO. and Jardiney was there until around 1914. I would love to get
some back ground on their mother. This is been a dead end for me for a long
time. I would appreciate any help you could give.
I heard once that there was a connection between the Watsons and Grays. Do
you know anything on that.

great grandma was a Fisher and was married in Ganntown, IL. I am hopeful that
you may have some info about them in some of your records. They are as

Co., KS; bur. Oakwood
Cem., Dewey Co., OK). He married, 2 Aug 1891, Ganntown, Johnson Co.,
Mary Jane FISHER, (b. 17 Sep 1868, Ganntown, Johnson Co., IL; d. 2 Mar 1914,
Oakwood, Dewey Co, OK).
The daughter of S. E. & Jonathon N. FISHER, (he was b. 7 Jul 1846;
d. 11 Mar 1907).
The grand-daughter of Nancy G. & Jacob FISHER, (he was b. 1842, TN).

Thomas Jefferson Harris so any light you can shed will be greatly appreciated.
