Hi! I have some general information on the Mullinex or Mollyneau family. My
4th great grandmother was Jane Mullinex who married Lewis Hammons in 1849.
They had one child and then were divorced. I could only find a step father
G.L. Lewis who owned a local tavern. He signed for them to get married she
being only 17 at the time. After her divorce she disappears and her only son
stays with her ex husband. I also found some other male names that I think
could be her brothers but have never found any information to prove it! I
will look for them and email you when I find them. If you find any
information please let me know!
born 1824 Owen County Kentucky
married Aug 27 1849
died abt 1880 per his will
1st wife-Jane Mullinex
she was born abt 1833
she was divorced around 1851( per divorce proceedings in court)
step-father G.L. Lewis
Lewis's father was Robert Hammon
and his mother was Nancy Morgan.
Melanie Hammons Bishop
P.S. I am looking for the following Owen County names- Hammons, Perkins,
Morgan, Mullinex, Gaines, Holbrook, Stamper, Lewis, Clement, Colston or
Coulson, Stevens and Guill!!
Looking for lost ancestors of Wm. Riley Hale, b 20 June 1873 in Owen Co. On
his death certificate his parents are shown as John W. Hale and Sarah (or
Mary) Mullinix (or could have at one time been Molyneaux). Supposedly his
parents died when he was quite young and he was raised by an aunt & uncle.
There was one other child, a son - Dee Hale. Wm. Riley was married in
Pendleton Co. to Ida Morehead and died while living in Grant Co., Grants
Has anyone seen these names in their searches. Would really appreciate
hearing from you if so.

I'm trying to get in touch with a man named Ron Meshew, who responded to a
query of mine back in January of this year concerning my Taylor ancestors. I
have tried to reach him via his e-mail address, but have received no
response. I have additional information confirming that Lemuel Taylor is
indeed the father of my gg grandmother, Sarah Taylor Carr, and would like to
speak with him again. Mr. Meshew, please contact me if you are still
subscribed to this mailing list. Thank you.
Thanks for the Stephenson information. There is an application for DAR
membership based on the service of James Stephenson in the Revolutionary War
under Capts. Townsend and McGlaughlin. He was taken prisoner by the British
but escaped in the dark in a British Long Boat. The application lists: vol. 7
p. 27 National Archives s 31388 and vol 3 p. 119 "Pension Papers"; NSDAR
PAPER 687113 BY McCausland; NSDAR 540829;"The Stephenson Story by Gerald L.
Stephenson 1976. Sarah Stephenson, daughter of James Stephenson was born abt
1783 in New Jersey and died 1860-65 in Gasconade Co. Mo. She married in 1802
in Harrison Co. Ky. Zachariah Woolums, who was born 24 May 1781 in Louisa Co.
From Stephenson (1) surname file at Ky Hist. Society: James Stephenson born
about 1754 prb. Va. (at least raised in Va.) moved to Cumberland Co. NJ,
married Mary Colley-appears Maurice River Township of Cumberland Co. pb. near
town of Delmont. James'es important papers were lost off the boat on the Ohio
River as he was moving to Ky. James along with his wife and 2 small children
Wm. & prb. Elizabeth came to Ky. abt 1782 and settled in present-day Harrison
Co. Ky. Here they raised a large family. James moved to Boone Co. about 1824
and lived with son Dudley. He was in poor health and nearly blind from poison
given him as a British war prisoner.
My biggest hit on the internet was when spiritgrny responded to my
question about if she had Sarah Stephenson on her list. She sent almost all
the info that showed up in the #2 message for 6/25 and now #2 has added a few
tidbits. One thing neither had that I do is the actual dates for Sarah: 13
Jan 1780 - 22 Feb 1862. I also have a lock of her hair which was still dark
blonde when she died at 82.
However, I have had no luck at all in learning any dates or events
for Zachariah Woolums Sr or any of the other early Woolums other than for my
gt gt grandmother Elizabeth Eaglin, dau. of Zachariah and Sarah. Any help
there would be appreciated.
Dear Listers and Barry,
For some strange reason I am following the same Stephensons as you ,
Barry. My children have these Stephensons as ancestors. I believe it
is William's line that went into Crittenden Co., KY. Yeh, Sarah
Catherine Stephenson died in Crit. Co. in 1925. She was married to
Manlius Allen. Do you know much about the North End of this tree? That
is, James' ancestors? I have some info on the other end.
Had no idea they were in Owen Co.
There is also a Mary B. Combs Cohorn that I have not yet been able to pin
down. I bought her death certificate, #24346, (DOB - 1906, DOD - 1990).
It created more questions because it listed her spouse as William Deaton.
She appears to have been married to Estil, Sr. at some point. If these 2
Mary's Gulley are the same, Mary Combs would have to had married Estil, Sr,
divorced and remarried Mr. Deaton although she is listed as a Cohorn rather
than a Deaton on the death certificate.
Please help if you can i belive that there are two daughters by the name
Linda and name Sharon if you know anything a but this please help my
grandfather DOB 01/041904 he died 1972 i cant even fine where he is buried
its not on the death cerfit.

The following was posted in my guest book and I told Dennis that I would pass
it along to see if anyone could help him. I realize he does not mention KY
or Owen Co but several of the surnames like Osborne, Strickland, etc., are
very familiar and I know a lot of you have families that moved to the states
he mentioned so I just thought someone might know something to help him.
Please send email directly to him he is not a list member. Thanks Barbara

You have a wonderful web page. I am wondering if you might be able to help me
with my Clifton line.
My grandfatherwas William Ganaway Clifton b.March 17, 1875 in Pontotoc
County, Mississippi, d. May 11, 1956 in Birmingham, Alabama married Willie
Aretta Sanford daughter of John Rufus Sanford and Jeneshua Emma
William Ganaway's parents were William Jasper Clifton and
Mary Malissie Todd/Strickland/Osborn. William Jasper's parents were John
Wesley/Westley Clifton and Nancy Freeman
daughter of David Freeman and Sarah Davis.
My maternal grandparents were first cousins, or so it has been stated all
through my lifetime. My two maternal great grandmothers were alleged to have
been sisters. Four of the grandchildren of these alleged sisters, including
my mother all state that their maiden name was Todd. The only records I can
are marriage records at the Fayette County, Alabama Courthouse that showsa
Mary M. Strickland to have married an M. O. Osborn/Osburn October 4, 1866,
then Malissie Osborn/Osburn marrying William Jasper Clifton. The other sister
listed as Jeneshua E. Strickland is shown to have married John Rufus Sanford
March 1, 1874.
None of the grandchildren can furnish any information what-so-ever about any
of their "Todd" relatives except that it was thought that the sisters (my
greatgrandmothers) had two cousins named John and Lee Todd.
I have been unable to learn anything of Malissie and Emma as they were
called. No one seems to know where they came from, except one great grandson
who thought someone had told him at one time
that they came from Georgia. I have checked census reports for Alabama,
Georgia and a few of the other southern states for the years 1850 and 1860
without success. The reason I checked
only these two years is because Malissie was born in 1845 and Emma was born
None of the family has knowledge of any Stricklands in the family. How did
they obtain the Strickland surname???
I know that this is quite lengthy and I apologize for same; however, the only
way I believe I might be fortunate enough some day to receive some answers,is
to try and furnish all that I know.
Thank you for listening (reading) this anyhow and if you can help I'll be
forever greatful to you.
Benjamin F. Sidebottom is buried in the Lusby Cemetery, on Rt. 227 and
described as 4 miles from Owenton on Back of Harold Perkins farm.
Other Sidebottoms buried there are B. W. (son of W. R. and Ann), Ray (1797
- 1854), Sallie Orr (d 1857 at 59), and W.R. Sidebottom (died 1881).
Perhaps Mariam is there under a later husband's name? I have to have a
surname to check this record.

Hello, I thought you might be able to help me in finding information on my
family who was living in Lusby Mills area in the 1870 and 1880 census. My gr
gr gr grandfather was Leon (Leander) Wright. He married Harriet Linn. Their
son, John William Wright was my gr gr grandfather. Do you have any
information on them. I would appreciate any look up you can do. Thanks,
Yes and no. A state was formed from territory ceded by the state of
North Carolina. It included the counties of Washington, Sullivan, and
Greene in what is present day Tennessee. A convention was held in
Jonesborough, the county seat of Washington County, in 1783. Meantime,
North Carolina was changing its mind about giving up the rich western
lands. In March of 1785, a governor of the new state, John Sevier, was
elected at a convention in Jonesborough as well as other officers. The
name Franklin was chosen to honor Benjamin Franklin, but the state was
never officially recognized by the US government.
There was much disagreement about statehood in both Franklin and North
Carolina, a civil war of sorts was fought, and the effort collapsed by
Records of the "state" were kept, although many were lost.
A cabin in Greeneville stands as a monument to the capitol of Franklin.
Supposedly the original was dismantled and sent to Nashville for
Tennessee's centennial celebration and disappeared. The cabin now in
Greeneville is from the same time period and there are other connections
to the Franklinites, but I can't remember what and can't put my hands
on the documentation this minute.
The cabin now in Greeneville was built by one of my ancestors, John
(This is a simplistic, nut-shell history. If you're really interested, I
suggest two books: John Sevier, Pioneer of the Old Southwest, by Carl S.
Driver; and The Lost State of Franklin by S.C. Williams.
I have read about the lost state of Franklin. Was it ever actually a

Howdy. Hope you didn't get this twice.
I sent off to NARA for some CW records, hoping that they were for my
ggrandfather, who was:
SMITH, James C., b 31 Jan 1836, Owen Co., KY;
d 4 Mar 1899, Arbela, Scotland Co., MO; m(1) 20 Dec 1860,
HOLDER, Lucinda, Scotland Co., MO; she died 15 Jan 1870;
m(2) 30 May 1870, Scotland Co., MO, YEAGER, Cordelia Mary.
He came to MO in 1854 from, we think, Louisville, KY.
He is buried in Maple Grove Cemetery across the state line
in Cantril, Van Buren Co., IA, next to his first wife, Lucinda
HOLDER. His second wife, Cordelia YEAGER, is my ggrandmother.
He was also a Civil War Veteran; served in Co. F,
1st Missouri Cavalry.
HOWEVER! There's always one of those, huh? The closest they found was a James
SMITH in Company K, 1st MO Cavalry; I don't believe he is mine.
So- if this looks like one of yours, send me your snail mail address and I'll
send you copies of what I have:
1 index card
3 Company Muster Rolls
1 Company muster-out Roll.
