"Forbidden fruit creates many jams"
My gg grndfthr Jacob Myers [1792-1872] lived mostly in Bath Co. Ky. but also
lived in Nicholas Co. He was born in Fayette Co. Pa. I am trying to find

families up to this date, with the exception of 4 people: Lida [Eliza],
Edgar and Mary who were children of Lindsey; and Mary, dau of George. Mary
Whaley. Lida m. James Wm. Sharp. Does anyone know of this family and
are we related in some way? The parents and siblings of Jacob are my brick

We Are Younger Than Our Classmates
While waiting for my first appointment in the reception room of a new
dentist, I noticed his certificate, which bore his full name.
Suddenly, I remembered that a tall, handsome boy with the same name had
been in my high school class some 40 years ago.
Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought. This
balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was too old to have been
my classmate. After he had examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended
the local high school.
"Yes," he replied.
"When did you graduate?" I asked.
He answered, "In 1962."
"Why, you were in my class!" I exclaimed.
He looked at me closely and then asked,
"What did you teach?"
I'm trying to locate Edgar Myers who was born in Nicholas Co. in 1874.
If anyone has access to the 1900 Census, would you please check
him out for me? He is listed probably as Ed or Edd Myers. He is listed on
the 1880 census with his parents and siblings.
Your help is most appreciated.

Does anyone know anything about "Pleasant Valley School" from the 1830's?
My 3rd great, Geo. M. Campbell b.1793, was somehow involved with this school.
Thank You in advance,

Thomas Metcalfe Campbell, who married Margaret Lucinda Banta, was, I
think, from Nicholas County. They were grandparents of my grandmother.
He was born on 2 Jan 1832 to John Preston Campbell and Jane Lee Metcalfe
and was a Confederate officer in Morgan's Raiders. His brother John
was a Union officer.
John Preston Campbell's father was William Campbell and grandfather was
Nov 7, 1877, Dr. John F. Robinson signed the marriage bond of his
daughter, Mollie E. to Albert Myers. Albert was 24, a farmer and this
was his first marriage. Mollie waw 21 and it was her first marriage.
They both were born in Nicholas Co. Albert's parents were Lindsey and
Susan Ralls Myers. Is anyone familiar with these names? Are there
any Robinson's on this list who are working that line? Sure could use
some input here.

I am so sorry you are not well. I didn't know you were in poor health. Hope
whatever it is, it gets better......and soon. You will be sorely missed. I
wish I could take it over,
but I tried to do a list once and don't have the technical ability to handle
it. You have to be able to do HTML and I can't. Keep in touch anyway.
I hate to see this, you have been a good list mom and we
all will miss you greatly.
