Still looking for ancestors w/above surnames. Found a book at our library
titled "Mountain Island in Owen County, Kentucky: The Settlers and their
Churches. On several pages it mentions an Orley Hale as the minister for
the Caney Fork Baptist Church. He is also mentioned with reference to a
church meeting house in Pleasant View . The church grounds were sold and he
purchased the meeting house. This was possibly a cousin to my grandfather.
Has anyone seen this name?
Also, on page 227 of the same book it shows three Mullannix surnames and a
Sarah Mullannix. My grandfather's mother was supposedly Sarah Mullinix (sp.
?). Has anyone seen these Mullannix names: John Mullannix, Sarah Mullannix,
and William Mullannix, Jr. All three had their church membership's
The book mentioned above is authored by James C. Bryant and has the Owen
County Historical Society in Owenton at the bottom.
Would like to hear from anyone re these names.
