I have researched a Collier family that lived in Nicholas Co. for many years. John Collier left a will there in 1820; had children: William, Hamlett, Coleman, Claiborne, Franklin, Sarah Gaines, Cynthia, Obedience, Permelia, Mary, and Lucy. Other families connected to the Colliers were: Howerton, Amos, Mountjoy, Bagby, Frakes, Turley, Peterson, Basye, Allen, Bagby, and others. Would like to connect or reconnect with others interested in this web of families. Thanks, Ed Dolan.
Hi, Am looking for Lucy Jane Hawkins Campbell b. June 22, 1872 d.Jan. 7, 1925 at Headquarters in Nicholas Co. The info on her death certificate was given by E.J. Caswell of Carlisle, KY RR # 5. She was a widow but I have been unable to find the name of her husband. Can anyone help? Patsy
In Perrin's "History of Bourbon, Scott, Harrison and Nicholas Counties", I
read that Isaac Messick introduced the tailoring business to Carlisle abt.
1816 and that John Messick was a tinner in Carlisle abt. the same
time. This is all the information I have on these two men. I'm wondering
if anyone on this list might know anything more. For the past couple of
years I've been researching Messicks in KY in areas including Nicholas,
Jessamine, Bourbon, Shelby and Madison counties in hopes of finding the
ancestry of my ggggrandmother, Lydia Messick who appears in the 1810-40
censuses in Madison Co.
