just went through the census for 1850 Perry Co. found a listing for a
59 Theophelus LEWIS 65 M Farmer 400 N.C.
Mary 65 F Va.
Margaret WILLIAMS 3 Ky.
Does anyone know if this could be Thadeus Lewis and Mary (polly) lewis
the son of JAMES and WINNIE LEWIS.
Thadeus was born in 1785 and he would have been 65 in 1850.
i have lost track of what happened to Thadeus after 1830 Census.

1770 and 1780. He married Winnie Sizemore and came to Kentucky around 1800,
settling about one mile up Cutshin Creek, later Perry County but now Leslie.
He served as Justice in the Perry County Courts from 1824 through 1829, and
died around 1830.
His children were Hiram, who married Cynthia Allen,...
Hiram, the oldest son of William (Bill) Begley was born about 1802...He was
continually in office and served in Perry County as Magistrate, High Sheriff
and was a member of the House of Representatives in the Kentucky

on Winnie Sizemore who married Bill Begley.

My name is Beth. I live in the Washington, D.C. area. I have access to
the actual Civil War pension and military service records located at the
National Archives in Washington, D.C. I'm willing to research and xerox
these records for other researchers at a reasonable rate. I can
guarantee a faster turnaround time than actually going through the
National Archives to order the records. If you know of anyone who would
benefit from my services, please email me.
Do you think that they could mean LAWTON KY, which is in Carter Co.?

On my very fine KY Atlas & Gazeteer (DeLorme, 1997), I find no Layton. There
is a Lacon in Grayson county, a Laketon in Carlisle county, Latonia Lakes in
Kenton county, Lawton in Carter county, Lay Mountain in Knox county, Layman in
Harlan county, Leatha in Magoffin county, Leetown in Butler county, Leighton
in Estill county, Liletown in Green county, and Lytten in Elliot county.
Remember, spellings weren't standardized till this century, and you still
can't rely on them today. :-)
Go to this site to find place locations all over the world (even if your
spelling is off a bit):
According to the Expedia site, there are seven Laytons in the U.S., in Utah,
Florida, Indiana, Kansas, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. I'd look at
the Virginia location first, as Kentucky belonged to Virginia before becoming
a separate state in 1792, and many Kentucky settlers came from Virginia.
I have been looking for the KY roots to the John Kelley Family, whom we
believed from his son's obituary had begun in Perry County, KY. I have
recently found a Biography for John Kelley's wife's (Desdemonia Brown)
brother which gives their birthplace as being 'near Layton, KY'. I've
been all over three different maps and have been unable to locate Layton,
in Perry or any other KY county. Does anyone have a clue where it's at?
I am now looking for information on John Brown, and Mary Vance who lived
in Perry County, from sometime before 1800 to about 1831 when they
migrated to IN. They had 6 Children, all of whom but the oldest were
born in KY. The children were, John, David (who remained in KY when the
others migrated and I am told was a soldier with the Union Army, Elijah,
Levi, Desdemona B: KY 5 Jan 1800, and Amos who married a miss Gibson in
1825 in KY.
Desdemona Brown, Married John Kelley, B:  in NC. They were
married, presumably Perry County, KY (according to their son's obituary)
about 1815. I would like to ID the parents of John Brown and Mary Vance
Brown and find birth dates for them and their children. Would also like
to find the information on David's time in the Union Army that would help
me to find his military records in the National Archives.
Would be interested in hearing from any Brown or Kelley cousins who
recognize themselves from these ancestors. I can be reached at
