Subject: [KYLAUREL-L] Samuel Black - Polly Black
When searching for information on my Samuel Black who was married to Rhoda
Steele, I came across some interesting information on Samuel Black who was
married to Polly Black. I cannot remember who was researching that Samuel
but I found some information that might help them. I found a will that said
was the step son of Moses Higginotham. I hope this is helpful to someone.

This is who I "think" these persons are but I don't yet have everything in my
data base or documentation for all of it. Perhaps someone else can add
From the information provided, there is a Margaret MESSER who has a son,
Eugene MESSER who has an additional marriage to a Bat STEWART. I believe this
Margaret MESSER is or was Margaret PAYNE b. May 16, 1844 in Knox; d. April 10,
1922 in Knox Co. Her parents were: Elihue/Elisha PAYNE and Mary "Polly"
Elizabeth VANNOY. She married first on March 29, 1866 in Knox to Allen MESSER,
b. Jan. 7, 1844 in Knox; d. May 22, 1898 in Knox Co. His parents were:
Edward/Edmund MESSER and Anna/Ann PATTERSON.
Allen and Margaret PAYNE MESSER had a number of children before his birth but
one of the latter ones was: Eugene "Coon" MESSER b. March 1887
So now we have a Margaret PAYNE MESSER with a son, Eugene MESSER. In the
Clay Co. Marriage Index, there is this marriage:
Feb. 25, 1904, File 32
STEWART, Mat to MESSER, Margaret
Bat is a misprint of the name, Mat. I don't have Mat STEWART's parents but
show he was married earlier on to a Paulina GRUBB.

May 1: Gov. Magoffin having asked the governors of Indiana and Ohio to
"cooperate with him in a proposition to the government at Washington for peace, by
the border states, as mediator between the contending parties;" and further --
through Col. Thos. L. CRITTENDEN as his representative, who went to
Cincinnati to meet them -- having "solicited their co-operation in an effort to bring
about a truce between the general government and the seceded states, until the
meeting of congress in extraordinary session, in the hope that the action of
that body may point out the way to a peaceful solution of our national
troubles;" Gov. Wm. DENNISON, of Ohio, replies that, "believing the general government
to be wholly in the right, he can see no reason for the interposition
suggested; any other peaceful solution is impossible, that the return of the seceded
states to their allegiance to the government of the Union; a truce would only
aggravate the impending evils." Gov. O. P. MORTON, of Indiana, replies that he
does "not recognize the right of any state to act as mediator between the
federal government and a rebellious state; he declines the co-operation sought
for, believing the action of the federal government strictly in accordance with
the constitution and the law of the land; he believes Kentucky bound to obey
the requisitions of the president, and invokes her to take her stand with
Indiana, on the side of the Union."
May 4: -- Special election for delegates to the Border State convention:
"Union" ticket: John J. CRITTENDEN, James GUTHRIE, R.K. WILLIAMS, Archie DIXON,
Francis M. BRISTOW, Joshua F. BELL, Chas. A. WICKLIFFE, George W. DUNLAP, Chas.
S. MOREHEAD, Jas. F. ROBINSON, John B. HUSTON, Robert RICHARDSON -- elected,
without opposition, receiving 107,334 votes in 105 counties. No returns from
five counties: Ballard, Hickman, Marshall, Simpson, and Woodford.
Gov. MAGOFFIN's message "renews the recommendation of a previous message, for
the passage of a law providing for the submission to the people of the
question of a convention, and the election of delegates;" says "the very homes and
firesides of our people are unprotected against invasion from without or
servile insurrection within;" the people appeal for arms; he recommends the
necessary measures to place the commonwealth in a condition of military defense.

I'm looking for information on the James Childs family who lived in Hamilton
(Butler Cty), Ohio. Census records state that James was born in Virginia
and later found in Clay Cty, Kentucky. James married Sarah Evans in 1874 in
Owsley County, Kentucky. In researching their cemetery records in The
Greenwood Cemetery in Hamilton, Ohio; I found the additional names of
Ponder, Estes, and Quinlan all who may be connected. I also found other
Childs names there that I can not link to my James Childs. Sarah's parents
were John "Jackie" Evans and Rebecca Nantz of Kentucky.
Is anyone researching the Isaac Hollinsworth /Margaret Greer family.
I have some of the children an there marriages but not sure I am
correct on these. would appreciate any help from anyone doing this family
I am looking for the burial site of John and Elizabeth (Gross) Cowan.
JOHN COWAN was born Oct 1835 in Knox Co., KY, and died Abt. 1915. He
married ELIZABETH GROSS, "LIZZIE". She was born Abt. 1840 in VA.
I can't find out whether it would be in Clay county Ky or back in the
Ewing Va area. My grandfather and grandmother Robert and Emily (Clark)
Cowan are in the Woods Cemetery on Sacker Rd Clay County Ky.
Can someone please tell me more on the Daw Smith and Laura Smith who are the
parents of the bride? I had in my tree that Cora was the daughter of William
Smith and Sallie Hubbard, from census records that I had seen, but now I don't
think that is correct. Thank you for any help that you can give.
I am going to send for Cora's death certificate too.
