Notes for JOHN S. TURLEY:
BOTH JOHN AND HIS WIFE ARE BURIED IN CONWAY CEMETERY LOCATED ON THE ISHMAEL SMITH FARM IN HARRISON COUNTY IN A GROVE OF TREES. JOHN WAS A FARMER WHO OWNED A FARM OF 196 PLUS ACRES ON STEEL'S FORD ROAD. IT IS ALSO SAID THAT HE OPERATED A PRIZING HOUSE FOR TOBACCO IN HEADQUARTERS. THE FARMERS BROUGHT THE YEAR'S CROP IN TO HIM AND HE MADE OUT A TICKET. THE TOBACCO WAS SENT OFF TO THE BUYERS AND THEY IN TURN SENT BACK THE CHECKS.
MAXWELL BURDEN OF HEADQUARTERS COMPLAINED TO ME IN 1995 THAT HIS GRANDPA LOST THE FARM BECAUSE HE DID NOT RECEIVE HIS CHECK ONE YEAR. ALTHOUGH THIS WAS NOT THE FAULT OF JOHN TURLEY, HE RECEIVED THE ANGER AND BLAME. OFTEN THE TOBACCO WAS TAKEN TO MAYSVILLE AND FLOATED DOWN THE OHIO AND MISSISSIPPI TO NEW ORLEANS AND IT WOULD BE A WHILE BEFORE THE CHECKS ARRIVED. ONE UNSCRUPULOUS BUYER COULD RUIN HUNDREDS OF FARMERS AND BE LONG GONE BEFORE THEY KNEW THEY HAD BEEN CHEATED OUT OF A YEAR'S WAGES.
IN 1995 THE LARGE BARN OF JOHN TURLEY STILL STANDS ON THE ROAD LEADING TO SALTWELL. TURN ON THE ROAD THAT THE STORE AT HEADQUARTERS FACES. THE BARN IS ACROSS THE ROAD FROM THE FIRST CHURCH ON THAT ROAD. IN 1996 STILL IN FAIRLY GOOD SHAPE AND USED BY THE OWNER FOR STORAGE.

Fletcher Mann, proprietor of the Blue Grass Stockyards Company at Lexington, has been identified with agricultural
interests and with the handling of horses and mules for many years, and has won success through industry and individual ability. He was born on his grandfather's farm in Nicholas County Kentucky near the old indian battle ground, Mar 19, 1856 a son of Milton and Margaret E. (Ricketts) Mann
Milton Mann the paternal grandfather of Fletcher Mann was born in Nicholas County, and there passed his life farming, reaching the age of seventy years. His son, also named Milton was born on the home farm in 1821 and as a young man followed his father's vocation of farming, but later went to college, was graduated at Greencastle, Indiana and being converted to the faith of Methodist Episcopal Church, was a preacher in the Kentucky Conference for fourteen years. Returning then to Nicholas County he passed the rest of his life as a farmer and raiser of livestock, in addition to which he engaged in a general stock business. He was a democrat in his political faith. Mr. Mann died in 1893 at the age of seventy-two years. He first married Margaret E. Picketts, the daughter of William E. and Mariah Leach Ricketts, the former a native of Virginia and the later of Robinson (now Nicholas) County, Kentucky. Mr and Mrs Ricketts were farming people who reached advanced years and had !
a large family.Mr. Ricketts became ine of the prominent men of his day and locality and served some years as Sheriff of Robinson, Nicholas and Fleming counties in Kentucky. Mrs Mann died when her son Fletcher was a mere child and her two other children James E. and Margaret died in infancy. For his second wife, Milton Mann married Jennie Ricketts, and they had two children Dr. Edgar G. and Rev. Luther E.
There is more info pertaining to Fletcher..........
If this is correct then Milton was son of John & Elizabeth Mann, and the husband of Nancy and father to James, Milton and Fanny Mann. Patsy
