My great-great grandfather's brother, Bernhard Heinrich Siemer, served with the 5th Ky Infantry in the Civil War, was wounded at Stone's River and invalided out. Your 5th Infantry roster has his named spelled Bernard Sceiner. His military and pension records, and his wife's pension records, establish that the two men are the same and the name should be Siemer.

She was in Mercer County in 1846 when she married Daniel M. Kittinger - originally from Muhlenberg County, Kentucky but at that time and later living in Upper Alton,Madison County, Illinois.

Since I signed in in 2009, I've learned that Archibald Allen's parents were James and Tabitha Parrish Allen, who were in Mercer County in the early 1800s, and Margaret Dunn's parents were Lemuel Dunn and Sarah Reade Campbell Dunn. They were in Mercer County by 1806. We've been to Harrodsburg and had a wonderful time, and got some wonderful documents. Would love to know who the parents of Lemuel and Sarah are!

AWESOME!!!
I am so happy I found your site. My sister and I are putting together the story of our family and the information provided here has been immensly valuable to us. I am the Great-Great Grandson of William M. Darland(1850-1920) and Sarah C. Demaree(1854-1934). We live in Tacoma WA, and came up here from Collin Co. TX sometime in the 1880's. William's Father John also made it to Tacoma along with several other Darland family members. We have been thriving ever since. I can't wait to learn more about Mercer County and the Low-Dutch settlers. Thanks!

Earliest known Mercer Co. Ancestor Margaret McKenzie brother Isaac
Arrived (appx year) 1769
My favorite section of the Mercer Co. site found nothing
Comments:
I recently found an online article about Margaret McKenzie who married Benjamin Hall, her second husband. I am a descendant of her brother Isaac.
I just wonder why Mercer County has this record of their tombstone, and NO OTHER RECORD.
Margaret and Isaac are the children of Moredock McKenzie and first wife Jamima Chapman.
They mostly lived in Morgan County--the part that ended up being Wolfe county. Jamima actually died at the mouth of Wolfe Creek (May 1778) in an Indian attack--same one Margaret was taken from. Moredock remarried and had more kids--
anyway-if Mercer County has one part why don't you have all the stuff here? Are Ben and Margaret buried here in Mercer? What is the name of the cemetery?
cordially submitted,
pam brewer

Hello, I'm an amateur photographer/ history nut. I was at the Danville, Virginia National cemetery today and took a ton of pics and was looking at a few names. I came across Berry Simpson 457 Co.K 6th Kentucky Cavalry. He was apparently a POW held and died in the Danville prison. I found it interesting and wanted to post the info online somewhere so it would be shared. Thanks

I am in search of my Ancestor's Families path to Illinois. That is where my Family settled in the 1830s, Greene County, Illinois. Those relatives seemed to have arrived from Tennessee.
I am also wondering if another Ancestor visited Mercer County, Kentucky. He was the Reverend John Gano, who was General George Washington's Chaplin during the American Revolutionar War. After the War, he traveled Kentucky, doing Revivals and various Prayer Meetings all over the state in the 1790s. His son, Captain Daniel Gano founded Covington, Kentucky. I am in possession of the Gano geneology book dating back to 1610, from France. Also, I have the Mathias Crum Sr. book, who arrived in Virginia in 1765 with his Wfe and five year old son John who was a Revolutionary War Vet. He settle on 100 acres he recieved for service in Clark County, Indiana in 1803, after living in Jefferson County, Kentucky since 1796.

I do not at all mind questions in reguard to my books and their listings. Call me @ home (859)854-3464.

Earliest known Mercer Co. Ancestor James Wright
Arrived (appx year) bet 1794 -1797
Comments:
I am looking for information on a James Wright (middle name believed to be Walker). He was born abt 1767 in NC. His wife was Aseneth (Freeman?). He had the following sons James W. Wright bn 1794 SC, William Wright 1797 Danville, Ky, Amos Wright 1798 KY, Thomas Wright 1807 in St Charles, MO. I know that they migrated to Ste Genevieve Dist, Missouri Territory. He remarried in 1816 to a Flynn. By 1819-1830 the Wrights had migrated to SW Arkansas living in the Sevier/Little River Counties region. Suspect that he was related to Claiborne Wright, pioneer and first county sheriff of Old Miller County, Arkansas.
Other researchers have his brothers listed as Obadiah, Amos, William, John, and another James. Any body have information of this family residing in Danville, KY and other relations please contact me.

My Grandmother was Georgia Or Georgie Freeman.who was born Sep 03 1887 to George and Molly Freeman. She was raised by her Grandparents when her mother died. My grandmother was three years old I think. they had a farm in Elizabeth KY. I am not sure when she married my grandfather.
My Grandfather was Ernest Gaines. I found a lot of Freeman and gaines on this site I am sure I was related to some.
Their children were Anna May, Lucile, Minnie, Lenord, and Bruenell ( who was my mother ).
If anyone know any thing about the family histroy please e-mail me. Thank you. This is a really great site.

Our (Bowdon, GA) local Civil War hero, Col Charles A. McDaniel was wounded at the Battle of Perryville and died in the Exchange Hotel several days later. He was buried in Harrodsburg, but his body was shipped back to Bowdon some years later. Please put me in touch with someone who might be able to determine how it was that his exact burial spot could have been located. Were there markers? Visited there in September for the Generals Barton and Stoval Historic Heritage Association congress. OUr records show he was buried in the "old Masonic Cemetery". Have you heard of this? The proximity of Spring Hill to the Exchange Hotel would make it reasonable for burial to have been there. It is just a question that has bugged me since the visit. How did they know where he was so they could dig him up and send him back to Bowdon?

The time period in Mercer County is from about 1786 - 1832. Other earlier states are also mentioned as in Pennsylvania and Virginia. The line of descendancy carries through to 2006. Thank You.

My ancestors were of the Low Dutch Colony in both Mercer and Shelby/Henry Counties in Kentucky. Hendrick Banta 3rd, the leader of the colony is my 5th great grandfather twice...trust me on that. I also have a strong connection to the Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill with 5 direct ancestors among the first to join in 1805, John Banta and his wife Polly Riker Banta; their daughter and son in law, Polly and Francis Montfort Jr, and Charity Banta Montfort [Charity is half sister to John and both are children of Hendrick Banta 3rd through each of his two wives.]; Francis Jr is the son of Charity and both son in law and nephew of John and Polly Riker Banta. Francis and Polly Banta Montfort Jr had three children when they joined the Shakers, John who left in 1827 and married Susan Minn or Miner in Shelby County [Ky], Charity who left in 1828 and married Isaac Bonaparte Fallis in Shelby County [Ky] and David W. who left in mid 1827 and five years later married Mary/Polly Cook, daughter of Seth and Francis Wilcoxson Cook [and great grandniece of Daniel and Squire Boone] I descend from David. I have a website on the Montfort family if anyone is interested in both that family and any connected to them...Boone, Wilcoxson, Cook, Faulkner, Hawkins, Banta, Terhune, Riker, Brinckerhoff, Haff, Alberti and others who settled in New Amsteram, New Jersey, Pennsylvania [Conewago] and Kentucky in the early 1780's.
The website address is http://bar-b-k.tripod.com
it is entitled THE MONTFORT FAMILY: A NARRATIVE...I invite those interested to check it out but also please, realize it is a work in progress.

Also found much info about my grandfather's (William Thomas Whitenac) killing of his brother-in-law Sept 3, 1899....And all that has got me digging into the family and trying to find out what really happened. Be glad to have any information about the Whitenacks of Harrodsburg or the Wickershams of Cornishville (my grandmother was Serina O'Dell Wickersham).
Now--back to enjoying the site.

Wonderful site

I am a direct descendant of Vincent Lester who appeared first in the 11 Jan 1790 Fayette Co, Ky Tax list, the area then became Clark County, where he lived till about 1800-1809 then he moved to Pulaski Co, Ky before 1810. He died in Pulaski Co, Ky in 1850. I believe he may be realated to the Lester of Mercer Co, Ky.

His children are James, William, Vincent, John, Zachariah, Jesse J, and one daughter Jemima. I have good records on his family but I am looking for his ancestory.

Earliest known Mercer Co. Ancestor Capt. Samuel Scott
Arrived (appx year) 1780
Comments:
Capt. Samuel Scott was not actually my ancestor. Instead, he is the person who was the REAL militia captain of that name in early Lincoln County, VA. He was "transferred" to Mercer County upon its formation.

The DAR has mistakenly identified a member of my family (Samuel Scott Junior of Washington County, VA) as this militia captain. But Samuel Scott Junior never migrated west from Washington County, VA. He is in all early Washington County tax lists beginning with 1782, when he is listed next to his father Samuel Scott Sr. Sam Jr. died in Washington County in 1811.

The REAL Captain Samuel Scott appears to have migrated west in 1779 or 1780, probably also from Washington County, VA. He had a land entry on Dicks River recorded in February, 1780. He was one of the original Lincoln County militia captains appointed in January, 1781 (Lincoln County Court Order Book, page 3).

I was writing because I found a posting on the internet by a Mary Baker who wanted information about her father-in-law, Roger Wayne Baker. Well, Roger Wayne Baker is my father-in-law, born 12/31/50 and was given up by his real parents at age 3 and was taken in by the Smith family in Lexington. If anyone knows Mary or James Baker, please pass along this information to them as my father-in-law would love to meet his son that was taken away at age 5. He is in ill health and it would make him feel much better to know that he has made his peace with the events that have occured in his life. Also, my husband, Roger Wayne Baker, Jr, would love to meet his brother, as his and James other brother, Billy, passed away in Oct. 2000, and Roger doesn't want to miss out on the opportunity to meet his only other brother from his father. Any info you have or can pass along would be wonderful.

Earliest known Mercer Co. Ancestor Etta Van Arsdale
Arrived (appx year) Born 1859 Harrodsburg
Comments:
Dear Mercer County Historical Society Friends,

My name is Joel Gillespie and I live in Greensboro NC. I am trying very hard to connect my Van Arsdale line to other Van Arsdales in Mercer County Kentucky, so far to no avail. If you could give me any direction I would be grateful.

My great grandmorther was Etta (or Ettie) Van Arsdale, who died Monday July 31 in 1911 in Somerset Kentucky (I have the obit), and who was born according to her son's birth certificate in 1859 in Harrodsburg Kentucky.

She married a Christopher Claunch Gillespie I think in 1878. They had several children, mostly girls. The first three girls were born in Missouri, the rest of the children in Somerset, including Curtis C, my grandfather. So, Christopher and Etta moved to Missouri, and moved back.

One of Etta's children, Willie Mae Gillespie, married a Millard Hall and had a daughter Ettamae. At one point the Halls moved to Oakdale Tennessee, and then later to Miami. After her parents died Ettamae moved to Columbia SC to live with my grandmother, widow of Curtis C. That is where I grew up and got to know Ettamae.

When Ettamae died she left a small suitcase of papeprs and pictures. I have many pictures of her family I cannot identify. One picture is of Etta Van Arsdale mother, but no name or place is given.

Included in those papers was an interesting handwritten genaeology of a Van Arsdale family live I cannot connect to my line. My guess from the way the material is presented is that it was put together early in the last generation of the people mentioned – probably in the first half of the 1900’s. I have no idea why Ettamae had the material because as I said so far I cannot connect her grandmother to this line of Van Arsdales. If you could make that connection for me I would be extremely delighted. I also have no substantiating documents for this material. Nor do I have names of compilers.

Another Van Arsdale researcher who has been kind to e-mail em says that Ettie's parents were John Wesley and Sarah Proctor Van Arsdalen but so far I do not have substantiating documentation on that. I noticed there was a "Wesley" in the history below.

I do not know the best way to present these five generations of Van Arsdales without being able to using indentation, which does not work well Outlook Express. I could attach a Word document with proper indentation if you liked. I have used Capital Roman numerals for the first generation, capital letters for the second, numerals for the third, small letters for the fourth, and small cap Roman numerals for the fifth - -outline form.

My favorite section of the Mercer Co. site family trees
Comments:
Great site. I look forward to exploring many avenues in the site.
My reason for accessing the site is my own genealogical research. I would like to make contact with a Mercer County-based genealogist who, on a professional or volunteer basis, would find what they can about the John Wesley Thompson family. One note I have is that John Wesley Thompson, Jr., a Methodist minister (not too surprising given the name) was born in Mercer County on 29 March 1819. He married Catherine Etter in Johnson County, Indiana on 26 Nov 1843. My own ancestor, Nancy Thompson, a daughter of John Wesley Thompson, Sr. and therefore a sister of J. W. T. Jr., also married in Johnson County, IN. Around 1840, she married William Carroll whose family had moved from Harrison County, Kentucky to Johnson County, Indiana around 1820. There are at least two John Thompsons in the 1810 census in Mercer County. From the above, I gather that the John Wesley Thompson family had lived in Mercer County at least around 1810-1820. I would be very much interested in their origins and lineage.

Comments:
I have noticed there are several references to "Barbey" or "Barbe". The only family with that name in Kentucky prior to 1892 was the "Barbee" family. In my many years of research within Kentucky, I have often found this mispelling in many counties. I would suggest if you wish to leave the roll original, do so, but put the correction in () for the use of researchers.

Thank you.

I just discovered your site while browsing. I grew up in Salvisa Ky and went to school through grade 5 at Salvisa Elementary School. My parents are now deceased, so my source of family info has dwindled. At one time I saw an extensive report done on my grandfather's side of the family, his name was William Maxwell Gritton. Unfortunately, I don't know what happened to it. If anyone has any information, I'd greatly appreciate it. Also, any information anyone might have on my mother's dad's family would be appreciated, his name was Erastus B Sanders. You're web site is wonderful and I have already spent over an hour looking at various areas. From someone who has no idea how to get started looking for family information, I thank you for all the work you have done to make it possible for folks like me to begin. Have a great day.

Arrived (appx year) paid taxes 1787
Comments:
My ancestor Townsend Fugett lived in Lincoln CO KY Territory by 1779. Lived in Mercer CO, paid taxes 1787 and 1789. Was in Garrard CO 1800 and 1810 censuses. Not sure he ever moved! Daughter Frances married Robert Wilds in 1802. They, along with her cousins, the Coopers and Browns, moved to Howard CO MO starting in 1808. Townsend Fugett/Fugate died about 1812 in Garrard CO. His widow and most the rest of the clan moved to Howard CO MO. I THINK Robert Wilds was the son of a John Wilds who lived in Mercer CO late 1700s, but cannot prove it. Any clues appreciated.

I have been researching the 73rd Indiana for a number years including the regiment's last Colonel Alfred B. Wade. The Colonel spent some time in Libby Prison (being captured on Streight's raid) but when exchanged he took a steamer to Fortress Monroe. In his diary he records meeting a Molly Johnson of the 6th Kentucky Infantry during his boat ride. She reported to Wade that she had been captured and sent to Belle Island but was released when the reb's found out she was a female. Do you know anything about molly??? I have not be able to find any related material. If you can supply some help it would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Mike Downs

Earliest known Mercer Co. Ancestor William M. Drake
Arrived (appx year) 1860
Comments:
I have traced my great great great grandparents to Mercer County in the 1860 Census. Their names were William M.Drake-47 yr.old-Farmer & wife Mary A. Hampton-40 yr.old. I would like to learn what every esle I can about my Drake and Hampton ancestors. I also would like to learn when and where they passed away. They had five children:
**
1)Drucilla-20 yr old female
2)George W.-18 yr old male-Farm Hand
3)Eudora-14 yr old female
4)Madison J.-10 yr old male
5)Florida P.-6 yr old female
**
William M. Drake and Mary A. Hampton were married in Fayette County on June 10, 1839. They can be found in the 1850 Census-living in District 1, Fayette County, Kentucky. William is listed as a Carpenter in this 1850 Census.
**
I descend through their first son George Washington Drake, who served in the Civil War in the Confederate Army - his obituary dated Nov.15,1888 from the Quincy Daily Herald newspaper in Quincy, Adams County, Illinois says that George W. was a captain in the Confederate Army and served under the command of General Morgan and that he was a prisoner during the latter part of the war in the Alton, IL prison. I am hoping to find out more about his military record.
**
In the 1880 Census George W. Drake and wife Mary Altathera "Allie" Buckman live in Washington, Buchanan County, Missouri. George and Allie had four children: Martha, William, Susan aka Fannie & Mary. In an 1887 City Directory they are found living in Quincy, IL. Allie lived until 1926.

However, in Ancestry World Tree Project says he was buried in Oakland Methodist Cemetery. I wonder if graves moved or I am mistaken about an acutal gravesites at the Fort. He came from New Jersey from an area near to where I live. Fort H. info says he was part of Sgt. Suly's Regiment in NJ Military or Militia. Trying to check this out next.

I also worked on the Tent Girl case in Georgetown Kentucky:

http://www.angelfire.com/tn3/masterdetective2/

The DoeNetwork works to identify unidentified deceased throughout the world.

I visited Harrodsburg on July 19th 2002 and took photos of your Jane Doe's grave so that we might make her a casefile on the DoeNetwork.

I found a lot of information with the help of Police Officer Howard Saller and Librarian Natalie Cox.

Some of the info on the case varies....I even found a possible link to my homestate of Tennessee. I will be checking these leads and I hope to get more data soon.

This case will be by FAR the oldest case on the DoeNetwork.

If anyone has any information on this case...please contact me.

Thanks!

Just a note to say thanks for all the help we received when we visited your city and your Socity. We did find the Champion Grave site, but it was in very poor condition, very over grown and overturned headstones. Most likely no one had been there sence the last time it was walked in the 1960's. It would be great to put that on your list of places to see if someone can take care of it before all the headstones are gone and it is unrepairable. I have photos and would love to send them to you, but no e-mail address.
Thanks Garry and LaNelda Gordon, San Antonio, Tx.

I am not sure that this John shown in your 1850 Census is my John as I am having a hard time finding his birth place, but the age matches. My John was in MO in 1870 and was born in 1842. That census shows him to be from KY and his Father and Mother were born in KY. I know nothing else about him and this is the first clue that I have been able to find in two yrs. It all started when I found a John H. on the 1890 Special Census-Cedar CO,MO records. Oh how I do hope that he is one and the same. If anyone out there knows of this family I sure would appreciate hearing. Your census shows no father, but a Mother Margaret and three children. Thank you for your time and all the work that you have done. Georgia

You have a great...No, You Have A Great and Wonderful Site. RootsWeb and GenConnect are not what they use to be. New (there are many) users have no idea that searching their roots with the new RootsWeb/GenConnect "Ancestry.com" system is not as private as it use to be. Personal info from cookies set by their users, is being sent to every (not their own) server in the Domain of RootsWeb/GenConnect Ancestry.com partners.

The new system is just what Hackers and Spam senders love. Access To Personal Info!!!

Will be back to your site, many times. When I am finished finding my info...I will give it to you...I will not give it to RootsWeb/GenConnect Ancestry.com for them to abuse.

On Feb 28 2001, I wrote out a branch of Jesse Hiram Bowling which was in part correct as I knew it then. I have since learned that this is not my line and I have done a disservice to the names mentioned in that list of Bowling family names. I would like to retract it and apologize for getting it confused with my line. It states that Chester A Bowlin was my grandfather, which is true, but it is a different Chester A Bowlin, Andrew Co MO, s/o George W, s/o Thomas, s/o Daniel, s/o Benjamin Bowling of Madison Co KY. This line is the correct line.

Arrived (appx year) ?
My favorite section of the Mercer Co. site Functional Sirname search
Comments:
Functional sirname search was very helpful and I enjoyed the listings of all of the men before us that fought on both sides for their country. Because of your generous search engine and informative county site of Mercer. I came back especially to give you the information I have made available to me. I might add this information was given to me by Jonny Arrington Master Sgt@worldnet.att.net who was kind enough to give me the info he had which was from Majorie Perrin(not on web) who is a decendant of Jesse Hiram Boling (these notes are her spelling)

Generation No1
Jesse Hiram2 Boling(James Thomas1) was born 3/29/1809 in Mercer or Washington Co. Ky, and died 4/20/1897 in Napolean MO. He married Malinda Hedrick 10/25/1832 in Rush Co IN. She was born abt 1810 and died 10/12/1890
Notes for Jesse Hiram Boling:

Children of JESSE BOLING AND MALINDA HEDRICK are:

JAMES HARVEY3 BOLING , b 9/23/1833; d 4023/1855 22 y
HARRIET BOLING, b 4-9-1835
MARTHA JANE BOLING, b 1/27/1837
JOHN WESLEY BOLING, b 5/1/1838
WILLIAM BOLING, b 1/9/1840; d 4/15/1882, Davis Co MO 42y NICHOLAS BOLING, b 10/9/1841; d 7/8/1869 28 y
SARAH BOLING, b 9/23/1843
GEORGE BOLING, b 5/9/1845; d 10/5/1876 31 y
ANDREW BOLING, b 9/11/1849; d 8/30/1850 11 m
These records are from Mercer and Mercer links. not sure of source, but will look it up. cannot do so now or i will loose my message to you and have to start over.

JAMES THOMAS BOLING married 1794 Anne Nancy Ellicock Mercer KY, she died 3/18/1812(JESSE HIRAM must have been from first wife being born in 1809

2nd wife: HESTER SEALS VOYLES, a widow? It does speak of her previous marriage or children from that union. However, it tells a tale of any other siblings being born from second marriage after 1814 as they were married 8/23/1814 in Washington Co KY
the note says that these are the same records found in Rushville IN in early 1800's. I have not checked Rushville IN to date, but I will.

5th Generation?

CHARLES CHESTER BOWLIN, b 1/8/1926, my father (if there is a concern for security or out of respect, please then do not list CHARLES CHESTER by name,who is my step-father.

My personal knowledge told me by my father CHARLES CHESTER BOWLIN:

CHESTER A BOWLIN lived in near Cosby MO around 1926-28. Married DORA REILLY, homemaker, previously a school teacher. They had twins, CHARLES CHESTER and DORA LOU BOWLIN, born 1/8/1926. When the twins were 2 years old, CHESTER flew the coop, liquidating his assets in a creamery, an Allis Chalmer dealership and a Chevy dealership. The house was said to be very large and even sported its own croquet court. He left the house and them in it. Of course, economy was terrible at that time, and finding a job teaching was impossible, and as many know, finding a job of any kind was impossible, especially for women. DORA could not pay the bills with no income and eventually took the twins to St Joseph MO.

PS: If I have placed this in the wrong part of your site, please remove it and put it where it belongs. I thought there was another place to write to you, but when I went back to find it, I could not.

JMG (my great-great grandfather) was born in Harrodsburg, moved to IL then to MO, served in Civil War and in the MO delegation to Congress. His parents John Glover and Fanny Taylor are particularly hard to pin down, I know I'm not the first to go looking for them! But it's a great excuse to visit Mercer County, since I'm also a horse person. Keep up the good work! -- KP

i'm sorry but i don't remember my ancsesters name at the moment nor the date in which they arrived but i do know they were among the first to arrive.i know that a female is buried inthe cemetary thereand i know that one of the squares in the quilt my family did and it is so refreshing to see a reference to the meeting house outside of my families story time. i commend you for your hard work and dedication. i would like my children to know as much about my family history as they do my husbands.which is why i came upon your site but it is hard to find anything without a specific name and date. oh well the best way to teach them is to take them to the old fort and show them for themselves the sacrifice that all of our families made . thank you rachel vanarsdall ritter

Earliest known Mercer Co. Ancestor Peter "Patrick" Jordan
Arrived (appx year) 1768
Comments:
I am attempting to locate information regarding one of my ancestors. He moved into Mercer County, c.1768, which is where he spent the remaining portion of his life. He died in 1798 and is buried in the same area.

We have a great deal of information regarding his son, including all information there after, however we are hitting a brick wall with this individual. I would appreciate any suggestion, county archives, death certificates etc.

His Name was Patrick "Peter" Jordan and married Elizabeth Shull also buried in Mercer Co. KY.

Thank you,

Earliest known Mercer Co. Ancestor Alice McClure
Arrived (appx year) 1784
My favorite section of the Mercer Co. site just got on, will be anxious to see what you folks have done.
Comments:
Our family have been working for some time on the Surname McClure looking for the husband of Alice McClure. One known daughter was married in Mercer Co. Alice md. Jobe Glover 25 th of Mar 1792. We have identified the other known children through a Circuit Court record found in Adair and Russell Co., Ky in 1831 when Alice the mother's heirs were trying to settle some property. We found a note on the Mercer Co. site indicating that John and Samuel were also married there. We have had those marriages for some time, but unable tho connect them to our John and Samuel. We have spent a great deal of time working the counties in Kentucky where we know that Alice lived with her children. The Mercer County site said that Alexander McClure was the husband, but we are unable to identify an Alexander who would fall into this category. Alice appears to be widowed very early, possibly as early as 1784 when she first appeared on a court record in Lincoln County. We are not asking anyone to do research for us, as we know others are busy with their own.
We do howeve invite anyone with McClure ancestry that may fall into our category of wanting to work with others trying to separate the different McClures into the proper families to join us in a private community on Myfamily.com.
Appreciation is always given to those of you who manage sites so wonderfully efficently. Thanks to you.

Earliest known Mercer Co. Ancestor William Locke
Arrived (appx year) 1778-1796
Comments:
Both Locke names on the surname registry were outdated.
I am looking for the family of Mary (Polly) Locke, b. in Mercer Co., KY 1796. Her father was deceased when she entered the Salem Female Academy, Winston-Salem, NC on 27 Apr 1811. Her tuition was paid by Goodwin Torrance and Robert Torrance. I have a tenative connection. I think her father was William Locke, b.1758 in Rowan Co., NC and died in Mercer Co., KY. He married Elizabeth Marshall on Dec 20, 1791 in Rowan Co., NC. If this is the correct father, William was the son of Francis Locke, b. 1722 in Northern Ireland and d. 1796. Francis was married to Anne Brandon who was b. 1737.

Would be glad to share any information.

He was the first Baptist Preacher in Mercer County,(as Baptist was a state religion from Virginia at this time). He was 80+ years when he died and was a very tall man.

My family names include Ewers, Duncan, Hardin, Dillard, Chandler, Barkley, Read, & Stark. I have found more information here than most other sites. Because I'm fairly new, I haven't reached all the possible sites pertinent to a search yet. I wish all visits resulted in such a wealth of information such as this one. My particular search is about my great-grandfather whose first name is, I think, unknown. He went by Milton Duncan, left eastern KY at some point over a family dispute and went to Western KY, Ballard County. His children incl., at least in this family, William Dillard, Porter & Catlett (sometimes known as Snyder) and my grandmother, Eliza Belle Duncan Ewers, b. 09-17-1873 and d. 03-15-1954. Wm. Dillard was born in Logan Co. (Russellville). Their mother, Mary Ellen Romans, died in 1874; there was another marriage, name unk., and lots of bad feelings. My grandmother's oldest son was named Wm. Hardin Ewers, I think. Any information from any source will be most welcome. Thank you for such a well done site as this. It is so easy to use that it's a credit to you and the hard work put into it.

I am the son of Dan and Dorothy Murphy. Many of these Murphys are buried in the Monterey Cemetery in OWEN County (see http://www.rootsweb.com/~kyowen2/cem/monterey.html for others as well)

I have conversed with several "lost" cousins over Rootsweb.com and several have hinted there's a strong probability that my GGG Grandpa John (married to Susannah STINNETT) may have siblings or parents living in nearby Garrard and Mercer County. They lived in Jessamine County. John and Susannah MURPHY lived in one cabin, Next to them was King Alexander STINNETT, and next to KA Stinnett, lived John and Susannah's Son, Hardin and his wife. I have been trying to find John's family but right now, I'm stone-walled. John's son Hardin (b. BTW 1835-1840)who was also known as "Asa" I emailed Mr. Simpson but his email address is no longer valid. If you know of any of his kinfolk, I'd like to share my information with them and see if they can help find my GGG Grandpa John's family. Thanks

Earliest known Mercer Co. Ancestor Alexander Doke
Arrived (appx year) 1790 - 1800 ?
Comments:
My ancestor, Alexander Doke, was born in Virginia in 1781. Family history says he then moved to Mercer County, Kentucky and afterwards to Logan County, Ohio. A history of Logan County locates him in Ohio in 1811. My only information in Kentucky is a Morman IGI record of an event: W-9 Oct 1805 in Mercer, Kentucky (Alexander Doke, father John Doke, but no mention of a wife!) There is a duplicate, same batch num er mentioning a William Doke (brothers?the same person? I have no middle initial).

There was another Alexander Doke in Warren Ct., but is definitely not mine. They are all part of a Doak/Doke family from SW Virginia and I would love to find the trace or confirmation that he is John's son and eventually trace him back to Virginia.

I recently found out that his wife's name was Elizabeth Schwing, born in Fredericksburg VA. (Isn't the internet wonderful - it was through a query in Ohio and my 'cousin' had all the names of the 12 children from a family bible. Of course, he could have had several wives for those 12, so perhaps Elizabeth didn't live in KY.

I live in France and get home infrequently to research my family (somehow it seems so important when you live abroad) but I hope to be back in VA and maybe Kentucky next spring.

Thanks for your good web page!

Sincerely,

Margaret Lebreton

My favorite section of the Mercer Co. site hard to say yet. it's new to me.
Comments:
My great-grandfather was james riley, served with the 1st Ky cav. in civil war, married Permelia Cary(or Carey) on Dec. 29, 1867. He begat James D. Riley, who married Pearl Westerfield in the early 1900s(his first wife died). They moved to west ky,near paducah, after living in other sites along the Ohio river as he worked on the construction of various navigational dams. He eventually was pensioned from the U.S.Corps of Engineers, during the 1940S. They had several children; Geneva Edith, Marjorie, Hazel, Sidney, and Lowell Thomas. Geneva was my mother,and married Stanley Haydon Bloodworth in Paducah(July 3 1935). My Father died Dec 31, 1995, and my Mother followed him on Dec 2, 1997. I'm the only child and I was born in paducah on dec 28 1942. I have only recently started to delve into my ancestry, so I am overwhelmed by the volume of info to search through. I am particularly interested in the ancestry on my mothers' side of the family(Both RILEY and CARY or CAREY). I have been led to believe that the Riley line goes back through French & Indian War, and that the Cary line goes back to the Mayflower, but, being new at this, haven't been able to prove either. Any help would be appreciated, but in the meanwhile, I'll keep digging around. Thanks, Haydon Riley Bloodworth(nickname--Corky)

Earliest known Mercer Co. Ancestor David Williams
Arrived (appx year) 1774 in KY -
Comments:
David Williams was a Rev. War soldier. He died in Mercer County in 1831.

He came to KY with a party of men led by James Harrod and the party included Isaac and Abraham Hite. They left Redstone Old Fort in February 1774 and floated down the Ohio.

He helped to build Harrodsburg.

He joined the VA 8th Reg. as a Private and later at
Valley Forge he was commissioned Lt. then First Lt.

He served in Col. James Woods 8th until 1781.

He received a pension in 1830 but died in 1831 in Mercer co.

I am searching for the names of the members of his family.

I know that one daughter married George Corn II and another daughter married a man named Thompson. And one of the Thompson children ( a daughter married an Arnold).

This is all I know. I very much would like to know about the rest of his family. I THINK his father was Col. Vincent Williams of the South Branch of the Potomac. Not sure.

My ancestral grandfather Ezekiel Williams was related but I do not know if he was a son or nephew or cousin.

That's what I hope to discover in Mercer County.

If anyone has any ideas or knows anything I would certainly appreciate hearing from you.
