Surnames :LEE; INGRAM My LEE ancestors came to AR from NC (by way of TN) around 1856. These include my great grandfather John Stephen LEE who served in the Union Army (1st Ark. Cav.) during the Civil War. 4 of his brothers served in this same unit. The family suffered harassment from pro-Confederate neighbors so they left the state and settled in the Hamilton/Galliton/ White Co., IL area which was home to Ingram kin of theirs including a Sewell Ingram and a Winnifred (INGRAM) Allen. I'm looking for info on INGRAMS and LEES that might help me figure out how theseINGRAMSwere kin to John Stephen LEE`S mother who was Betsy (INGRAM) LEE. LEES associated with this family, which returned to AR in the 1870s, include John Stephen LEE, Samuel Ingram LEE, James H. LEE, Betsy LEE, Nancy Jane Lee (wife of John Stephen), Levastus (aka "Bass" or "Vas") McKinney LEE, Sir William LEE. IL families that ended up in the same area of AR after the 1870s include Thompsons and Digbys. TheLEES were Primitive Baptists and during the IL years belonged to the Licking Creek (?) Baptist Church in White Co. ROD PENNINGTON, Temple, TX rodpenn@sage.net

BROCKETT, FINNEY posted by Nancy Trice on Thursday, September 18, 1997

Surnames: FINNEY; BROCKETT I am the coordinator for the Hopkins Co KyGenWeb page. One of the projects I am working on is Matties scrapbook of Obituaries. This is a large scrapbook of obituaries, all of whom apparently have a connection to our family in Hopkins/Webster Counties Ky. Mattie, who was my husbands aunt apparently kept the obits on all of our family members, however she never made a notation of the paper name and seldom the date of death. The earliest death I have found is 1905. Mattie died in 1972 so it can safely be assumed that 1972 would be the latest date. In putting this together for the Hopkins Co page I am attempting to locate the burial place of everyone in order to give some added value to the obituaries for anyone visiting the page. In addition to showing the burial location of the deceased I am also showing the spouses if known and any others who are possibly kin that are buried with or near the deceased. I have an obituary for Walter L FINNEY, age 72, resided in Slaughters, Webster Co, Ky, died Madisonville, Hopkins Co, Ky and buried in Carmi. His widow was named Mai FINNEY, his sister was Mrs Elsie BROCKETT, Carmi. If anyone has a cemetery book for Carmi would you please look for Walter L FINNEY. If found, I would appreciate also knowing who is buried next to him if it is readily apparent they are kin... Thanks, Nancy Trice; KyGenWeb Coordinator

TRUSTY, TUCKER posted by Debby Beheler on Thursday, September 18, 1997

Surnames: TRUSTY; TUCKER Emma TRUSTY(b.Sep 1870 d 7 Apr 1903) was the daughter of Mary Elizabeth TUCKER and Henry H. TRUSTY. Emma was born in White Co., IL as was her father and probably her mother. Her grandfather and great-grandfather, James Vinson and Henry TRUSTY migrated to White Co., IL by 1836 (land purchase) from NC. In the 1880 census Emma is listed with her mother and step-father (James E Walton) and step siblings. What happened to Henry H.? There is family legend that Emma's daughter Edna (our ancestor b. 23 Feb 1895) was a twin and that her twin sister was killed in a freak accident as a small child. Emma is listed in the 1900 census as being the mother of 4 with 2 living, so this is possible. Does anyone have any death records or a connection to this family? Also, I don't have anything on the TUCKERs yet. Thanks Debby Beheler

FARLEY HANNAH TADE in Gallatin and White Counties Silas FARLEY, b. Aug. 13, 1802, married Mrs. Cordelia (Tade) Hannah, b. Feb. 21, 1801, widow of Brice HANNAH. The Hannahs lived in Gallatin Co., where son Dolphes Brice Hannah was b. Oct. 11, 1822, about 5 miles N. of Shawneetown. Brice, a businessman engaged in trade and forwarding, died in the spring of 1823, leaving wife, son and daughter Ellen. John MCLAUGHLIN was appointed to administer the estate, and left the area with the proceeds. Cordelia (Celia) was the daughter of David TADE. Census records indicate he was b. 1780 in NC. The widow married Silas Farley, a flatboatman and farmer. They moved to White Co., on the Big Wabash, where Silas died the winter of 1833-34. His last trip on the river was disasterous, with all goods lost, and the family was left without means. After planting and selling 10 acres of corn and vegetables, the widow moved ot Jefferson Co. in the fall of 1834. In September 1836, David Tade moved the family to Lee Co., Iowa. There they were assisted by Gen. Brown at Montrose. Dolph Hannah learned the brick mason's trade, and ran the ferry at Smith's Hills on Skunk River for two years. Silas and Celia had children: Eliza J. Farley, b. July 29, 1824, married Thomas J. PERRYMAN 1843 in Iowa, died in WA in 1894. Perrymans called her Eliza, but Farleys called her Louisa. William Farley, b. Dec. 23, 1825. Elizabeth A. Farley, b. May 27, 1828, m. Jackson W. Painter. In Iowa from 1850-1870 and in Portland OR by 1880. Silas M. Farley, b. Jan. 18, 1830. Moved to Muscatine Co. Iowa by 1850 and to Oregon by 1856. David A. Farley, b. Jan. 25, 1833. In Appanoose Co. Iowa in 1850, in Oregon in 1870. A letter from Dolph Hannah to LC Perryman, son of Eliza and Thomas, refers to Drury Farley of San Diego as Eliza's uncle; i.e., Silas' brother. He also refers to cousins Lizzie Terry, married to James Wesley ALDERMAN; Mollie married to George W. BAKER; Ellen married to James W. MELSON. Have more information and some family letters; wish to correspond with other descendents. Jon Ridgeway (Seattle, WA) jncridge@aol.com
