204 (Research):Louisa A Oliver, a granddaughter, is living with George and Louisa in 1900. She was born in August 1891 in Kentucky. According to the census both parents were born in Kentucky. Because of the last name of this grandchild, the mother has to be Melissa or Carolina. Unless it is one of the unnamed children that is the mother, but that is doubtful. The unnamed probably never made it to maturity. Based on the fact that Louisa, George's wife, stating that she is widowed in 1910, that is why the death date is set to before 1910. Pugh, George M.

207 (Research):Martin Young was born May 13, 1841, in Erie County, Ohio. He is one of ten children born to Ira and Sophia (Crippin) Young, both natives of New York. The elder Young was a fisherman on Lake Erie for thirty years. Maternally, Mr. Young is of English descent, and paternally from Holland. When Martin was about five years of age, They came to Porter County, settling on "Twenty-Mile" Prairie. A sister of our subject was about the first school teacher of that settlement, and Judge Field was among her pupils. When about twenty-one years of age, Mr. Young enlisted in the Seventy-third Indiana, serving nearly three years, and participating in the famous battles of Stone River, Nashville, and on Col. Straight's raid through Georgia. After he was discharged, returning to Chesterton, he engaged in the meat market business; he has built up the leading trade in this part of the county. He is a member of the I. O. O. F. fraternity. Mr . Young is a Republican, but favors the financial theories of the National party. Mr. Young has one of the finest brick residences in the county, richly furnished, and with the luxuries of piano, organ, etc. He was married in 1862 to Mary J. Lansing, a native of Porter County.

208 (Research):Mary states in 1900 that she is the mother of thirteen children with 11 alive. McKee, Mary Dawson (I4637)
209 (Research):Mary states that she is the mother of 7 children with 4 living. But with her being married, 3 times it is unknown who the deceased children belong to. In 1910, it states that the three children living with Hollis and Mary are Hollis's children. So it either is a mistake on the census takers' part or she was married previously to another Rhoden. Mary E. (I8503)

214 (Research):Note: The death certificate states that the burial date is on the 24th. From the years of research I highly doubt that they waited 12 days to bury him. I am more inclined to believe the 14th. I do believe that is what the death certificate should state, but since it does say the 24th, I am recording it as such until such a time that I have other documentation to disprove the 24th. Shaw, William Alben (I7531)

Mrs. Sarah Shook, Widow of David W. Shook, Died During Night
Mrs Sarah Shook, 93 years of age, widow of David W. Shook died at the home of her daughter, Mrs Ira Melson north of Hobbs Wednesday night at 10 O'clock, death ending an illness of several weeks from heart trouble and a general breaking down due to her advanced age. The death of this splendid woman removed from the community a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who lived to see many changed in this state and county.

Tree: McKelleb

Subject: Saunders, Ringo, etc.

Dear Cynthia -
I first want to thank you for posting material on the Saunders-Ringo bible
online, where I found your name.
We have in common ancestors from Fleming County, Kentucky. I just sent an e-mail to the city clerk in Flemingsburg to see if she could assist me in making a visit to see the area and do a bit of genealogical research.
I thought you might be able to provide suggestions as well.
I also visited your site; I'm very impressed! I am descended from Moses Saunders (ID I6930) through his daughter Louisa Hester Saunders (ID I13289), who was one of my great-grandmothers.
If you are a member of, you can look up the rest of the
information on her family there. For the moment, since you do not have her death date, it is 17 Aug 1921 in Madison, Jefferson Co., Indiana. Her husband was Hiram B. McCord born Nov. 1829 in Fleming Co., Kentucky; he died 1 Nov 1902 at the National Military Home, Dayton, Montgomery Co., Ohio. They divorced and married again, but I won't bother with that. I have copies of death certificates I could scan and send.

Thanks for your contribution and whatever you might suggest.

229 (Research):Some people have this Hiram and Hiram P. Saunders mixed up. This Hiram is from Fleming. Hiram P is from Lincoln County, Kentucky. It would probably be completely impossible for Hiram to be married to Abigail Saunders and Mary Ellen Burch at the same time. Although possible for Hiram to be married to two women, highly unlikely. On September 19, 1855 Hiram and Abigail had Hiram Fleming Saunders. On January 18, 1955 Hiram P and Mary Ellen Burch has Sanders. I believe these two Hiram's are more than likely related because the Saunders and Sanders last name is interchangeable. However, I do not believe these two Hiram's are the same person. Saunders, Hiram (I15883)

WILLIAM FRENCH MARKWELL (nee MARQUIL) 1750-1816 WILLIA M FRENCH MARKWELL & 2 brothers, John & George, came over from France and settled in Maryland or somewhere along the line between Pennsylvania & Maryland. It could of been in the western part as they came down the Ohio on a flat boat to Flemingsburg in Mason County, Kentucky. WILLIAM FRENCH MARKWELL & AMELIA/EMELIS HURST were married somewhere in Pennsylvania or Maryland near the line around 1775. He served in the American Revolutionary War from 1775 to1783 and was in Kentucky by or before 1794 as his name is on the tax books at that time in the Historical Society. Fleming & Mason Counties were carved out of Mason County in 1798. The tax list is found in 1794 in the Historical Society building at Frankfort, Kentucky. His name is among the pioneer settlers. (The name Markquil/Marqyuk evidently became Markwell when the brothers migrated to the U. S.) He owned vast tracks of land to run a tavern/inn as they were called in thosedays. The land described on Foxes surrounds the old Wyoming is on the east side of the river in Bath County His name is found as witness and administered on several marriages and wills.
Old Home
The old brickhouse on Foxes creek known as the MARKWELL HOME was first used as a tavern and residence. The road went by that place to Reeves Ferry and people traveling this road would often spend the night there. This place was built by the Markwells. It contained two stairways and was plastered (a rareity in those days). No room was papered except the hall. The plaster was coated with lime each year. We know that E.W. Markwell lived there in 1884 but from then on the house was occupied by tenants . This house now owned by Luther Pierce according to early records was a landmark and in the records is referred to as the Markwell Plantation and Mansion. In regard to the 2 stairways --one entered from the front hall and was a nice winding stairway; the other from the sitting room. In those days many houses had 2 stairways one for the girls and one for the boys. There was no door between the two rooms upstairs. The house had 2 large rooms and a hall in the front part & in the back was a dining room, kitchen, & tavern.
Markwell Cemetery
The old MARKWELL & CRAIN GRAVEYARD is near the covered bridge over Foxes Creek at Grange City. Buried in this are the Markwells, Rosses, Hursts, Newmans, Kissicks, Fondrey. The Kissicks came from Ireland in 1800. William Markwells Will In the name of God.

248 (Research):There are 2 Hezekiah's in Shelby County. Both Hezekiah's were born about the same time however, they have different children. Looking at the wife won't work. The wife's first name is the same. However, the children's names are different and the death dates are different also. In 1870 and 1880 there is a Corey/Cora living with Cary as he went by. In 1870 it states that she was born in Indiana, and in 1880 it states her parents were born in New York. She was born either in 1868 or 1869. I do not believe that this child is theirs, however it is possible. There is also a 13 year gap between Laura and her, and again this is possible, but doubtful. Smith, Carey (I16108)
249 (Research):There are several cities in Kentucky by the name of Fairview. They are in the following counties: Kenton, Anderson, Christian, Boyd, Whitley, Fleming, and Lyon. Based on where John and Rebecca were living at the time of their deaths, I believe it is in Fleming County. In 1910, Rebecca states that she is the mother of 11 children, with 10 living. Lytle, Rebecca (I5113)
250 (Research):There is a David & Eliza J Lathram living with Ambrose and Deborah in1 850. David was born in 1827 in Fleming County. Eliza J was born in 1834 in Bath County. My instinct tells me that Eliza may be their daughter. In 1860, there is a Larkin Goodpaster living in the household with Ambrose and Deborah. I wonder if this Larkin is actually their son Franklin.The ages closely match. More research is required to find out. Jones, Ambrose (I17767)
