If anyone out there has 1860 census records, I would really appreciate a look-
up. I am looking for Matilda Hollinsworth Robinson who married Julius
Robinson in Clay Co. July 1, 1858. She may or may not be in the same household
with Julius, but they have a son, William.
Robinson, Julius b. abt 1842
Matilda b. abt 1842
William b. abt 1859
I am DESPERATE!!! Please e-mail BECKYJ3(a)aol.com if you are able to look up.
Thanks so much. Becky

Glad to see you back at it. This Lafayette is the nephew of, and was named
after, my greatgrandfather Lafayette. W.H. CORNELIUS(a/k/a Uncle Harvey),
his father, was brother to my Lafayette, and both were sons of Andrew
CORNELIUS who's obit is published in the July 1896 edition of Mountain Echo.
Andrew had land on both sides of the Rockcastle River and some of that land
is still in the family. We have the CORNELIUS reunion every year on the
Laurel co side where Bob CORNELIUS lives. Some still live on the Jackson
side in eyesight of the Laurel side, such as Burnam CORNELIUS and his wife,
the former Nancy HURLEY.
Andrew somehow got is land from Robert E. NICHOLS and some folks named
RAMEY. Andrew's land at one time stretched from this area where Bob
CORNELIUS lives on Laurel side and Pond Creek on Jackson side to the
confluence of the county lines of Rockcastle, Laurel and Jackson
counties.(Horselick or Horseshoe Bend area). All of this land was part of a
29,000 acre grant to Jacob REMEY and the northern half of that 29,000 acres
was deeded to James KINCAID for a survey by 1800. The deed is recorded in
the Lincoln county. Then somehow Thomas NICHOLS, who lived on the border of
Pulaski and Rockcastle counties, got about 10,000 acres in a tax sale in
1838 at the Laurel co courthouse. He deeded it so his son Robert E in 1844.
How my Andrew got so much of it, I cannot find out. He deeded some of his
lands to my greatgrandfather Lafayette and to Dr. Lafayette's father,
William Harvey, but we cannot find the chain of title from Robert NICHOLS to
Andrew. Perhaps it was recorded in jackson co and lost in the courthouse
fire. I also understand that quite a few papers may have been burned in the
London fire that current Mountain Echo posts are reporting.
My main focus right now is to find out more about the migration in the
1820's from Big Sturgeon area of what is now Owsley to the Rockcastle River
area of the CORNELIUS family and many others such as PHILLIPS, PARRIS,
SPIVEY, FORBUSH, CASTEEL, CHESTNUT, PARKER, GABBARD and others. Further, if
they migrated together from one part of KY to another, did they come to KY
together in the first place?
I still have not found the father of my Andrew. I know he was born in KY
abt 1813. This is the ONLY line I have where I am still stuck in the
1800's. My Andrew built water mills, an occupation that was usually handed
down from father to son, and there were CORNELIUS families who built water
mills in early 1800's in Greenup co that moved to Boone co, KY. Perhaps my
Andrew came to the Rockcastle area from Boone co.
Anyway, thanks for the post. I am going to forward it to the CORNELIUS

> DEATH OF DR. CORNELIUS
>On Sunday, Nov. 27, 1904, at 3:20 o'clock p.m. at the home of his parnets

>Dr. Cornelius was born Sept. 20, 1871, and was 33 years old. Thus we see

>which time he attended Berea College for about two successive terms. He
>taught several terms in the common schools of the county, giving

>The funeral services were held from the residence Tuesday morning, Nov. 29;

>over a year ago and who also died in the full triumph of faith. The service
>were conducted by Rev. Dillard Parker, who delivered an able oration to a
