I'm with you! Where is the action on Claiborne County? Hezekiah Hablin and
his wife Rebecca Guinn were in the 1850 census along with their 6 children.
Hezekiah was a teacher. Would love to know more about this family. They
divorced the next year. Were there any Guinn/Gwinns living in the area. Two
of the children went to live with William Gwinn. Any info about these
families would be highly appreciated!
Please respond! Nancy Morris Brown

My Stephen RICE b 1795 Va d 1887 Bell County, KY served there (Tazewell)
in the War of 1812. His brother, John R. RICE, lived there, too. I'd be
grateful for any info on county formation or on RICE family in the county.

My Grandparents got married in Clay County. I have a copy of their marriage license. It says that they were married at the Gospel of the Baptist Forth Church in Tetuoge, Kentucky. (Typed as stated on the license). Can anyone tell me where Tetuoge, Kentucky is? Every map I have doesn't have it on there. Thanks for your help.
Hi! I am looking for descendants of Henry and Mary House Anderson. Their daughter was Florence Anderson, born 1890, died 1957. She was married to Elbert Bradley Hacker, son of Matt and Elizabeth Hensley Hacker. Elbert Bradley was born in 1889, and died in 1944.
I was wondering if anyone had the following book and could please check
for the surname COLLET(T)? Or, if anyone knows a link that may have similar
listings, although 20,000 soldiers and officers would make for a big site :-)
Thanks. Sincerely, Barry Collett

Does ANYONE have ANYTHING at all on my great grandparents Daniel Robinson
married Anna Hollinsworth. My grandmother, Loutisha (possibly their oldest
child) was born in 1885. Her youngest brother, Dozier, was born in 1898 at
Manchester Clay Co., Ky. This family is like looking for a needle in a
haystack. ANY CLUES, however small, would be very much appreciated. I have
lots of names in my files and not ONE Hollinsworth / Hollingsworth. Please
Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi; I am Jim McDulin, I was born and raised in Hamilton, Ohio, where in
1919 my parents,
William Spencer McDULIN, b.1890, Clermont County , OH, d. 1963,
Hamilton, OH, &
Letitia Eversole, b.1896, Clay County, KY, d. 1969, Hamilton, OH, were
Letitia was the dau, of Abner Eversole, & Sophia Robertson
Abner the son of Judge James Eversole & Nancy ABNER.
I think Judge Eversole was born in Owsley County, came to Clay abt 1867,
Nancy was his 2nd wife, 1st was Elizabeth Robertson,
Sophia was the dau, of Columbus Robertson & Linda REID , Columbus came
to Clay County abt. 1839. This part of the family lived in the Clay
County area I believe, as a young boy we would go to the Manchester area
. I have over 50 yrs of notes & memory (????) I am putting together.
Lots of names, some places & very few dates, like many of us I just did
not ask the right questions and write down all I should have 30-60 yrs
ago. Looking for many birth, marriage & death dates and burial cites. I
would appreciate help from all that have or know info on the family.
Your assistance is greatly appreciated and I look forward to your
comments and info.

Alex Taylor married to Cattie (Katie) They should have been married about 3 years. I'm looking for children of this family.
Possible children could be: William, Ross, Julie, Sarah and Shelby. I have no b. dates to help out. Shelby was the son of Alex Taylor, is mother passed away and Alex re-married to Cattie Hampton. Getting much confusion of siblings to Shelby, not sure of natural siblings or step-siblings. Help!!

Are there any Lyttle Researchers on this list? I am interested in finding
out more information on James Lyttle, a school teacher, who married Sally
Ann Allen in the mid 1800s. Sally Ann and James had one child, George

I have just joined the list. I am researching the surnames Murrell and
Gibbs. This is a little confusing. I have Daniel Murrell born 4-14-1892
Clay co. KY. The informant on his death certificate states that his
parents were Thomas Murrell and Josie ( Gibbs ) Murrell. However some
family think that Daniel was a Gibbs and raised by a Murrell.
This is what I am trying to find out. Was Daniel a Murrell by birth or a
Gibbs. I was hoping that someone had a 1900 Clay co. census to do a
lookup for Murrells and Gibbs and see where Daniel was living. In 1900
he would've been 8. ( give or take ).
I would appreciate any info on these two families. Is anyone researching
them? At one point in time Daniel moves his family to Lincoln co. and
starts his family.
Thank you for any help.
