I am seeking information on my gggrandfather Hiram Begley born about 1823 in
KY. He married Mary Ann Norris about 1850 in MO. Shortly thereafter they
came out west to CA. I am trying to find out who Hirams parents were. Any
information is greatly appreciated.
Thought it was time to try again to locate information on three of my
great, great grandfather's sisters. Alexander Walker, son of Christopher
Walker and Elizabeth Stewart, was born circa 1818 in KY. He married Sary
"pollie" Allen on 28 Mar 1837 in Perry Co. KY and died after 1880 in
Madison Co. AR. He lived in Breathitt Co KY at the time of 1860 and 1870
census, moving to Madison Co. AR in the early 1870's probably due to the
death of Christopher Walker who had moved to Madison Co earlier. Four of
his daughters are assumed to have already married prior to the move to AR
and remained in KY. Of these, nothing is known of three of them.
Children of Alexander and Pollie include the following:
Nancy Walker, born 1837. No further information.
Elizabeth Walker, born 1838 in Perry Co., married Reuben Patton, died in
Madison Co. AR
Mary Walker, born 1840. Perry Co. No further information.
Martha Walker, born 1842. According to another researcher, she was married
first to Elias Adams, and then Meredith Mann. No other information or
Cynthia Walker, born 25 May 1844 in KY. Married first Hiram Holbrook and
then Isaac Back.
James Henry Walker, born July 1846 in Perry Co. KY (my great, great
grandfather). Married Martha Ann Cornett in Madison Co. AR circa 1875.
(Martha Ann was born in Perry Co. KY also but moved to Madison Co. AR in
the early 1850's).
William D. Walker born 1849 in Perry Co. Married Clarice Ritchie in 1883 -
Madison Co. AR.
Benjamin Walker, born 1853 in Perry Co. Moved to Madison Co. with family.
No other info.
Lewis Walker, born 1859 in Breathitt. Married in Madison Co. AR .
Any additional information on Nancy, Mary, and Martha would be great. I
have some information on the others (some more than others!).

I'm new to Perry county genealogy and hope some of you may be able to
help me out here. I don't know much about this family but below is what I
Margrete Stacy was born probably about 1875-85. It appears she was the
daughter of S. L. B. Stacy of Perry County, KY.
She married Robert Boyde Williams in about 1900 or so and died Nov. 1911 in
Perry County. Their daughter (my husband's grandmother) Mary Alice Williams
was born on 4 May 1906 in Hazard, KY. I'm assuming they had other children.
She later married Floyd Burks of Arkansas in about 1920. We were told that
Robert B. Williams died in Perry County within a few years of Margrete,
leaving Mary and her siblings to live with ?
My questions to you are:
Who was S. L. B. Stacy (Stacey)?
Who was he married to and when?
Who were the siblings of Mary Alice Stacy?
Who cared for Mary and her siblings after the death of their parents?
Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated! Recommendations of good
reading sources? Records that are known to exist during this time period?
Others I could contact that may have information?
Thanks to you all,
Joyce Mueller Martin

I recently received a death certificate for a great uncle I did not know I
had. His name was Elbert Edwards. He died on June 24 1932 in Buckhorn Perry
Co KY. His death was caused by "gunshot wounds to the chest, abdomen and
right arm" and listed as a homicide. I was wondering if anyone heard or read
anything concerning this homicide or had access to the Hazard Herald for that
date. I would like to try to get a copy of any newspaper articles on this.
Thanks for any help you can give.
I hate to post this when so many roll calls are going on and i hope
its not deleted but i have moved the CW Website to its own location.
It deals with a lot of help on the Civil War and especially the
24th Ky Inf.
MERRY CHRISTMAS http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Fields/8648/

please pass it on to me.
