My sisters Maude and Mae Hacker d/o Daniel Boone Hacker and his
second wife Hanor Lucinda Hazlewood married brothers Chester and
Elbert Ledford. Mae and Chester were married April 2, 1920 and
Maude and Elbert were married August 9, 1913. Don't know who
the parents of Chester and Elbert were. I will be working on it

Well! I don't want to be left out so I'll add my LUNSFORD to the list
I have a gggg grandfather, Isaac LUNSFORD, who was born c1805 in North
Carolina. He shows up in the 1830 and 1840 Clay census with a wife, but
I don't know who she was.
Isaac had 6 children, the first being William, then a male, 3 females,
and lastly a young Isaac.
I have information to share on William and family, but not much else.
I'm looking forward to finding out who my Isaac connects with.
I must belong to somebody!

Hi, Is any one out there researching the Hubbard Family? I am interested in
finding the family of Rowena Hubbard, Who Married Haywood Jackson.about
1850, in Clay Co. any information would be appreciated. Ed Jackson
Thanks for your reply; these are the right folks!
I believe we have corresponded before, back in May '98, about the Peters
bunch. I descend from William Peters, son of Mary Peters of Clay Co.
Mary Peters (1801-1874) was dau. of Henry and Polly (Waite) Peters of
Scott Co., VA>
I was hoping you might be able to shed some much-needed light on Mary's
spouse, who you have listed in your WFT info I believe as John B. Peters.
(Jan Loomer shared this info with me)
Any help would be MUCH appreciated because I'm at a dead end since Mary
Peters was been listed alone in census records and tax lists. I would
love to know what you've seen documenting John as Mary's husband; a
marriage record from Scott Co. perhaps?
Thanking you in advance for your help! Stephanie Peters Russo
I just got a reply from Peggy Shepherd Banks, which shows my Martha
Peters marrying a gentleman named Alfred Gambell in 1906. I don't know
anything about his family, however.
If you find we connect or if I figure out more later, let's talk again.
Thanks for your reply. Stephanie Peters Russo

I saw your querie before the holidays about the following:
I have ancestors named Jones from Clay & Laurel County. I have been having a
hard time finding any information about them. This is what I do know.
America Jones, whose real name may possibly have been Angelin, was born in
1854 and died in 1929 and is buried in Ward Cemetery in London. She was
married to Marion Rush, b. 1858 and d. 1919. They had 7 children: Joseph,
Adeline, Lucy, Samuel, Ida, Margaret and Edward. I believe she had at least 1
sister named Mary Jones Smith who was b.1856 and d.1931. She is also buried at
Ward Cemetery. There is also a Margaret Jones b. 1838 and d. 1918 buried along
side the other two. I don't know if she was a sister or aunt or what relation
Do any of these names sound familiar with your research? I am digging and
digging and not coming up with much at the present time. Any help would be

I was in touch with you a couple of months ago about Carr Helton. I have
tried to get some information for you from the family of Jerry Helton
(Carr's son) in CA. They do not seem interested in responding. As a
genealogy "nut", I can't understand this, but it seems some people "just
aren't interested"!!! ????? I just wanted you to know that I hadn't
forgotten about you and I am still trying. There is supposed to be a
"nephew" someplace that "might" be interested. If I ever find anyone who
will tell me something, I will let you know. I'm sorry I can't be of more

Thanks for trying Judy. I know how it is when relatives find it "a waste of
time" gathering info on past family members. Heck, my own grandmother
wouldn't tell me her mother's name or her birthdate. I had to send away to
the state to get a copy of her birth certificate to find out this info. She
really surprised me though recently and gave me some old pics of her family
that she thought I'd be interested in, though she still won't give me any
info. She's 89 and the last of her generation alive and I guess the info she
has will go with her.
I was wondering if anyone from the Bell or Knox County area could send me an
obituary notice from about 2 weeks ago of my great aunt,
Maggie Hensley Roark , widow of Hunter Roark from Bell County, Ky?
Thanks in advance,
I thought I saw a posting about Milley Jones the other day. Did I dream it
or delete it? I am interested in a Milley Jones who married Sylvester Smith
in about 1850 (?) They were in Perry Co in 1858. I believe these to be the
parents of my husband's great-grandmother Malinda Smith.

Good morning friends,
I've finally gotten around to responding to some postings I had saved for
future reference. Sandi sent this message Nov. 12. Can anyone tell me
anything about the Elizabeth Wells who is listed here?

Ray Baker, The Frank Baker, Son of Gardner and Thena Robertson Baker that
was killed in 1933, was 27 years old in 1920, so he would hardly have been
a lawyer in 1889. Besides he would not have been on Martins Creek which is
a "pretty fur piece" from Crain Creek.
This may or may not have been the killing that happened just after my
father was in Manchester. Dad was partly deaf and as a result he was not
always aware of what was going on around him. He sort of minded his own
business, you might say.
He had gone into Manchester and had been in a couple of stores and
finally in the bank before he became aware that there was no one else on
the streets of Manchester. He remarked this to the teller who told him that
there were men on the building tops with rifles.
Dad said later that he reasoned that as he had not been shot at before
he was in the bank, that they were not gunning for him, So he finished his
business in town and drove home. He was later to learn that a killing had
happened shortly after he left when someone drove into town.
