I spent lots of time growing up on my grandmother's farm in Dungannon. She was Clarice Irene Semones Lee. Her father was Moses Hoge Semones. The farm had been in the family of his wife, my great-grandmother, Eliza Jane Addington Semones.

I have dozens of photographs and several stories that might add to the website. How could I post them?

Thanks!

Both My Grandfathers, my Father and My younger brother worked for Olin. My Brother catches and releases fish and wildlife on the holston river. He lives in Abingdon,Va. The Holston river ran behind my Grandparents house. I grew up on that river. My Father loved to fish and we travled there many a day. Us kids would pick berrys and nuts while Dad fished. Love the place. Dreamed about it the other day so I thought I'd look it up.

I recently returned from my first visit to Scott County. I came seeking the site of Boren's Fort, constructed by my ancestor, Bazel Boren, who was Scott County's first settler. I was fortunate to find the site of the fort on the south side of Copper Creek near Grassy Creek. The beauty of Scott County cannot be understated. My wife and I have become enamored of the region and will certainly return at the first opportunity.

My great, great grandfather Jesse Baldwin claimed that he was born in Scott County some time in the early 1800s. I am very desirous to find who his father was. I did note some Baldwins connected with the Primative Baptist Church of NIcklesville. Jesse Baldwin died in West Virginia.

Also, any information you can find of the Esteps in Scott county I would be most grateful for. I have noted their names being listed in the Stoney Creek Primative Baptist Church before 1815. I would be most interested in any other Esteps, especially Joel Estep Sr.'s father. And I understand there was a Samuel Estep who immigrated from Ireland and landed in Scott Co. where he pastored a church for some time. Thank you for your considerations.

Thank you for all your work. My Family includes James Davison Sr, born 1825?, James Jr born 1857?, Robert born 1780's. Benjamin D, born 1822? son of Robert and Cynthia Chadwell being her married name according to Scott county Chancery Court records, migrated to Perry County Kentucky in the mid 1840's. Benjamin D married Sarah Combs in 1849 and was my GGG Grandfather. Line is Benjamin, Joseph, Robert, Marcus Eugene, Mamie Davidson born 1927 in Kentucky, my mother.
My Family also includes Samuel, born 1800? and Ursley Porter Welch, born 1805? who lived in Scott County in the mid 1800s. According to our family bible they had a daughter Naomi, born about 1822, she married a William Longworth and moved to Claiborne Tennessee. Naomi and William's son George Washington Longworth, born 1847 in Tennessee was my Great Grandfather. His daughter Margaret Longworth, born in 1900 in Beattyville, Lee County, Kentucky was my Grandmother. Margaret married Marcus Eugene Davidson in 1921.
I have no factual record of Naomi's birth, marriage or death other than our Family Bible.

I've been enjoying your website. I'm needing some assistance in learning more about a cemetery that use to be located at a place called Reed's Chapel....somewhere near a community named Bubbling Springs somewhere there in the southern part of Scott County. Is there anyone among your society that might be able to give me some information regarding this location? I would greatly appreciate any assistance in this regard.

Mary Ann Hart and George Hilton were my grandmother's parents. Her name was Emma Elizabeth Hilton. She was born on August 23, 1888. I still have not been able to find her birth certificate. Her husband was my grandfather, James Clarence Ayers. They had three children:

James Hilton Ayers (deceased)
Elda Ruth Ayers Shockey (deceased)
Marie Eldean Ayers Chenko (my mother)(deceased)

I am the oldest girl of four children. My sisters and older brother live in Columbus, Ohio.

If you know of how I can find grandmother's birth certificate, please let me know.

Is there a Family Bible that would have this information?

I so have the "Hiltons of Scott County" book, by James L. Hilton. There are alot of names in this book that I am familiar with, and have met some of the people named in this book.

Hello,

I'm James Martin Hale. Drayton Scott Hale would be my great grandfather. The best information I ever found online about Drayton was here.

http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~vaschs2/drayton_hale.htm

It confirmed a lot of things my father James Archelious had told me about his grandfather when I was just a kid. My father died in 2003 but I recall a civil war picture of Drayton. I think it must be still at our family house, need to check next time I go to Oregon.

Also looking online there seems to be some dispute as to who is the father of Archelaus Dickinson Hale (i.e. Drayton's father). Does anyone have any information on that?

My grandfather Archelaus Harvey Hale's first wife was Fannie Canzada Kilgore of Scott County. My grandfather moved to Oregon where he married my grandmother Mary Ellen Mills.

Thanks, James

My link to Scott County:
1) Hale, Archelaus Dickinson 05/02/1815 - 01/08/1898 died in Reynolds, Minnesota
2. Hale, Drayton Smithton 01/25/1839 - 01/22/1916 died in Russell County, VA
3. Hale, Archelious Harvey 12/09/1870 - 03/19/1931 died in Klamath Falls, OR
4. Hale, James Archelious 07/24/1925 - 06/29/2003 died in Grants Pass, OR

I love everything about my ancestorial home in Scott Co.,Va
and enjoy so much to just touch base in the Bell cemetery
in Duffield-Pattonsville area,
Question: How do I approach getting a correction regarding
a story I submitted to the Scott Co. and Its People. The two pictures I sent with my story of Dr.A.R.T. Bell and another sent in my daughters name. The pictures are mislabeled. The man and woman standing on a porch of their home is Dr. A.R.T. Bell and his wife,Judith.
The story of Lewis Cass and Elizabeth Lovell Bell, the man and his wife sitting belongs to Lewis Cass Bells story.
I understand the DAR has published these pictures in their
papers with the wrong idenity on each. Please let me get this corrected at least through the DAR before they continue on into another generation with very wrong names to each picture. Please respond and let me know how to correct for future history there. These people are extremely important to our bloodline and we are so very proud of them. Thanking you in advance. Georgia F.

Eliza was the last to be buried at that site according to Nathan Hale of Jonesboro Tenn.The house that is in the picture is near the cemetary but was not Jim Hale's house .His house is at the base of the hill as you come down from the cemetary.

I would like to speak with someone about Stallard Grey Cemetery. My parents are buried there and alot of my family members but there is one stone there that has S E D married to N L D and I would like to have any information as to who this is. I am betting that it is family. My email is Lpeagles77@bellsouth.net if anyone has any information about the Stallard and Davis family. Thank You

Wonderful site. Many of my ancestors migrated to Owsley County, KY from Scott County between 1850 and 1860. I am very interested in the David Marion Neeley family (Revolutionary War veteran). I would like to know where the Neeley homeplace was located. I believe it may have been on or near what is now the Natural Tunnel State Park. Also looking for more information on Joseph S Neeley's wife Ann Bowen. I cannot find any reference to her parents.

Keep up the good work. Looking forward to a visit to Scott County in the near future.

I was looking for informtion on Kenny Wagner, whom my father had known as a young man, and about whom I heard stories as a child. My father was born and raised near Texarkana, so I'm sure it's the same Wagner. Then I noticed the words 'Quillin Clan' on the page, and here I am. It was a serendipitous sort of thing, and I'm happy I found you.

I love the website. Just finished reading the Long Hunters, and found possible relatives among them. John Rains and William Allen, as well as others. The reason I say W Allen is my dna matches with Harden Owens 1796/7-1887 but also matches lots of Allen s in which A William Allen is listed among ancestors. My Grandmother Viola (Raines) Deel ancestry goes back several generations of John Raines or Rains. One of the graves of a John Rains 1805 is buried near their home place.

I came across your website in researching Wininger roots. You have some photos of the Wininger cemetery that were of interest but you have a photo of one of the family that is labeled unknown. I believe this is Rosannah Darter Wininger who was the wife of Andrew Wininger. The birth and death dates on the stone correspond to information I have on Rosannah.

Comments:
How can I thank you for your wonderful essays on the Wilderness Trail and Methodism? As I trace the roots of my family from Kentucky back into Virginia, I find that so much information has been lost. I am left with little clues such as wills that were witnessed, lists of of those who attended sermons, and determining neighbors from census data and old deeds.

Your essays give me a greater understand of the lives of my forefathers and keeps alive the hope that I will one day discover a document which will offer proof of their lives in Virginia before their arrival in Kentucky. I've been searching for 23 year and many days I wonder if Edward Evans was hatched from an egg brought to Earth by an alien spacecraft before entering the Witness Protection Program and appearing of the 1795 Tax List in Washington County, KY. (Yes you are correct, it's not that bad! He may well be the "Edward Evins" listed as part of Capt. Proctor Ballards Company in Bardstown, KY in 1790 and 1791 and or the Edward Evans for which Ebanezer Miller was charged a levy in 1789. This levy was also recorded in Nelson Co., KY)

1st - great web site, I visit frequently. Just plugging new genealogy tool - DNA testing. I'm encouraging male members of the Templeton line to consider getting their Y-DNA tested from organizations such as Family Tree DNA (familytreedna.com). The Y DNA is uniquely passed from father to son, generation to generation with few (if any) changes (mutations) from your great-grandfather to you. Gathering such data into national databases could help us gather otherwise unknown ties. Similarly another test, FamilyFinder (autosomal DNA) tests across all the lines in your tree. Every test result is an additional clue to lineage and helps firm up anecdotal and paper trails.

The last time I checked this site, there was an orphan photo of an old house that I believe to belong to the Taylor family. I think the man in the photo is my great grandfather Pumroy Taylor and the children are his son Henry and three of his daughters (all were on the porch of the house). I can't find the photo again, and am not really sure where I was looking to start with! I thought the caption was, "Mysteries" instead of "Orphan Photos". Can I find out who may have the original photo so I can get a copy to better be able to identify it?

Many of my realatives were from Scott and Washington County.

My Mother's Father is John James Larkey who family was from the Hiltons area. My great grandparents "Larkeys" and "Hiltons" are buried at Darthula in Hiltons. I believe I also have Gardner realztives there too.

I'm looking to find someone who can help me locate addition photos, documents and grave sites of my realatives. I did go to the Scott country courthouse in October and found very few records so I think I'll need someone. I will gladly be willing to pay for copies of the things I'll looking for. Thanks again.

He married Ella Vincent and had three children, Pearl, Leward, and Verttie. Hoping this rings a bell for someone. REALLY HOPING someone has a copy of his manuscript I can peek at. Thanks.

All LATTURE's are my lineage. I am looking for any info about them...no info is to small! I know that Harmon/Herman LATTURE was in Scott Co, Va. by June 16, 1792. I found info that he had 238 acres and it only shows location as both sides Mill Creek. He came from Pennsylvania then to Scott County, Virginia and others went to Sullivan County, Tennessee. I have seen he was married twice and would like to find and prove the info of each wife and children. I think he died around 1833 I think in VA. or maybe TN. I would love to find a Will for him or any LATTURE. If you connect in anyway please let me know. Or if your a local and went to do your own searching and come across anything that even sounds like LATTURE please think of me. I can't find any Will books for this County. ;(
Thanks for reading,

Searching for parents of Mack Vaughn born 17 Apr 1880. Probable names were Isaac or Harvey and Mary Ann Mosely / Mosley or Bessie or Betty. He was orphaned young so names on later documents could be persons he lived with.
One document says nearest P O Gaye City.

About 6 years ago I donated my book 625 page book "John Henry Sr. (d. 1828) of Scott County, Virginia and His Descendants" to the Gate City Library and Kingsport Library. Hope you will take the time to explore its Index to see if any of your relatives have been included. Any questions or comments about the book info would be welcomed.

I am quite shocked as to all of the settlers who were killed by indians. No one was spared, children women teenages the whole lot was done away with.
The same thing also occured here when our settlers landed and wanted land to settle and farm. But there were no animals here to hunt and our natives did nothing with the land but as soon as we did some thing with the land they wanted our goods and such, they still want our goods and such. Any way I found this site of great interest as I am a great student of early American history. Any how well done a great and informitive site.

I just happen to run upon your site, I'm very happy I did. The stories, the information, photos and what have you are wonderful. The only problem I have with your site is, I cant stop reading your stories long enought to do any research, I love reading them.
Most only want the facts such as date of birth,marriage, and death with a few census thrown in for good measure. I want all that and more, I want to put a face to all that info., even if I don't have a photo. I want to read articles about the pebbles and bolders in this persons life. I want there to be more than just the stats about this person. I realize this can not be with some of our ancestors as the left very little paper trail, but for those that I can, I will give them a life on my genealogy chart.

I went on your cemetries, you need to change the John Mcconnel list, James Baxter Pierson and those tombstones below his are NOT in the John McConnel Cemetery. That is my family cemetry and is simply known as the James Baxter Pierson Cemetery in Daniel Boone. So please change this as this is not correct. John McConnell cemetry has a fence around it. The McDavid cemetery is on the other side so acutally there are three cemeteries there.

Although the Brotherton name has disappeared from Scott County, I feel it is my home by choice because of the history of this family there. Grandfather George Howard Brotherton was Scott County Deputy Sheriff. Grandmother grandmother Ella (Miles) Brotherton taught school at Beech Grove circa 1890. My dad lived the first nineteen years of his life farming the hill sides below Newman's Ridge in Fairview and my mother Lita (Maness) Brotherton lived right next door in Lee County.

I would like to thank Kenny, Don and all the others for all the hard work they have put into this site. We all owe Harold Peterís for all the joy he has given us with the pictures he had.

I have enjoyed the photos and have tried to share photos I think others would enjoy. I am related to Frazier, Carter, Boy, Starnes, Taylor, Walker, Lee, Latham, Pennington, Stewart, Flanary, Quillen, Wells, Harper to name a few. Every trip back to Scott County I try to visit relatives and gather all the information and scan any pictures they have to add to my collection. I have over 2000 pictures I have scanned and redone. One very important suggestion I would like to make is for everyone to go through all the old pictures they have and identify who the persons are in the pictures and write down all the family information and stories you can. As each generation passes on we loose a lot of information that is lost forever.

If you have additional information on any of the pictures I have submitted or any questions please let me know.
Thanks

Gary

Thank you so much for all of the photos! There are four generations of my dad's family shown--including some g-g-g grandparents whose pictures (a painting) I had never seen.

I am wondering who has the original of that painting of Wales W.W. Peters and Elizabeth Frazier Peters? My dad, his dad, and now my niece all were named for that g-g-g granddad. I have an original ca. 1850s portrait of HIS dad (John P. "Braddox" Peters) and I'd be willing to make a copy of it in exchange for a really good copy of the W.W.W. and and Elizabeth portrait. I also have a nice hand-colored photo portrait of Robert M. and Nancy B. Frazsier that I could have copied as well.
Thanks again for the work on this web site!

This site is very impressive. I couldnt stop looking at all the photos. I located a photo of Don Gillenwater, my Step father. He passed away over 20 years ago and I have only one photo of him until now. I think this is a wonderful site and I am sending the link to everyone I know. My Grandfather,James Estep, has mentioned many of the names attached to the family photos. He will be 95 years old in a few days. He lives a couple of houses above the Thrift way on the left side of the road. He also has many very old photos at his house. Someone should go over there and take a look at them. Thanks again for a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Sincerely , Jimmy LaForce

My father, Curtis Hammonds, was the only child of Abidga C. Hammonds, son of Marion Hammonds and Louisa Gilliam, son of Anderson and Nancy Williams. Marion died as a young man leaving 5 small sons. I have found census records where the sons were in different households with Marion's siblings while growing up. My grandfather, Abidga, died when my father was 15 months old. He died July 4th, 1908, at age 22. I have one picture of him and one picture of him as a youth with another older man. I have been trying to find any information on the Hammonds for many years. I can not adequately express my joy on discovering this site.
Would like to get in touch with anyone who has any information about this family. From the information with the pictures, Don Lane and others are a part of this family.
Would be most grateful for any correspondence.

This is a great site. My compliments and thanks to those of you who contribute your efforts. I would like to inquire if anyone would be aware of land records that might exist pertaining to private land being deeded as a cemetery. Specifically the Lawson Confederate Memorial Cemetery. To my understanding this must have first been private family land with burials taking place. At some point it must have been donated for further burials. Any help would be grand!

My entire family is from the Scott County area. My maternal grandmother, Elizabeth Williams Peters, is the author of the pictorial history book of Scott County, "My Hometown". Currently I am doing online searching of our family geneaology using Ancestry.com. One enormous project that I am undertaking is scanning and formatting all the pictures from both sides of my Scott County relatives. This job will cover a vast population of Scott County including, Peters, Williams, Lane, McDavid, Hensley and Babb to name the 1st most surnames on the family tree.

I would like to offer my thanks for the posting of the many wonderful photos on this website, especially the extensive collections of Don Lane and Harold Burnette Peters. I have found pictures of my great-aunt, great-grandfather, great-great-aunts and uncles, and too many cousins to mention. We were surprised and thrilled to find pictures of Workie Gilliam who wrote a memorial poem about our great-grandmother, Nancy A. Stallard Peters. We are still looking for pictures of Nancy and her husband, William Patton Peters, and any help would be appreciated. We do have an invitation-only MyFamiily website on the Noble Peters and Margaret Dell Lane extended family and anyone who is interested may certainly contact me for an invitation. Again, thank you so very much for sharing these wonderful old photos. I expect you know how much it means to us!

My niece sent me your site and I just wanted to let you know what a great site it is. In searching your cemetery listing, I found several family members. My question, is there more than one Mc Murray cemetery's? The one shown does not have my Grandparents there. All I know is there is a church at the bottom of the hill and the cemetery is on top of the mountain around Hiltons, VA. I thought the Glenwood Church sounded familiar, but it's not the correct cemetery. I am looking for Henry and Arena(Hensley)Mc Murray and James Luther and Hettie Mc Murray. Also, Samuel and Jeramiah Mc Murray. Any help would be greately appreciated.
Sincerely,
Leta Donohoo

My family going back as far as 1750 were settlers before Scott County was created. Duncan Mill, Duncan Creek & Duncan Fort are all family. Ft. Blackmore is where my granfathers were born in 1808, 1844, 1874 and my father in 1913. My best childhood memories is when we lived at Williams Mill east of Gate City when I was 9 years old. I still visit there every time I come home. Thank you for this site....Let me know if I can help.
