Who is Lucy Ann PORTERFIELD? She is my G(2)GM, married George Washington PATRICK 19 Mar 1856 in Caldwell County. Among their several children was my G(1) GF George Henry PATRICK. I have copies of Mar. Bond, Appl for Mar Lic, Mar Lic, and Mar Certif. On the Appl, she says Diana MERRICK is her mother, doesn't list father. Diana VIED married John MERRICK in Sullivan County, TN in 1836. They moved to Caldwell County, KY in 1839. However, Lucy Ann PORTERFIELD was born in 1833. Was Diana VIED first married to a PORTERFIELD? The 1850 Fed Cen KY Caldwell shows a Louisianna living with John and Diana. That is probably Lucy Ann. Did Lucy Ann marry a PORTERFIELD? G.W. and Lucy Ann lived in Caldwell, Trigg, and Union Counties KY and moved to Lancaster Dallas Tx sometime after 1880. Both died there in 1891. Can anyone help me find anything else about LUCY ANN?

I'm researching my father's families connection to the Night Riders of the early 1900s. My father Gid MORSE was born in Caldwell county on May 30, 1889. He had three (?)older brothers that were involved with the Night Riders. They were Will, Jim and possibly Fred MORSE. These brothers were about ten years older than my father. My grandfather, William Cass MORSE, was a homesteader in the county. My father told us about the activities of the Night Riders including burning a barn in Caldwell County. Do you have any information on the MORSE family in that era.
Also, Fred MORSE killed a man that was trying to prevent him from seeing his daughter. It was about the time of the Night Riders and I wonder if there is any connection.

Mark Stephens
In 1816, a Francis (Fannie) Stephens, attended a sale in Caldwell Co., with a Rueben Stephens. Our ancestor, Ezekiel Stephens married a Francis (Fannie) Briant/Bryant in Christian Co., KY in 1813. Ezekiel appears on the tax lists paying a poll tax only, in Christian Co., in 1815 and left Fannie in KY in 1815. He went to Madison Co., GA where he resided near other Stephens. We have not been able to connect Ezekiel to any of the Christian and Caldwell Co., Stephens as a brother or son, however, we believe that Ezekiel b. ca. 1792-3, was related somehow to Moses, Reuben, Samuel, Uriah, James, Elijah Sr., etc., or any other Stephens of Caldwell Co or Christian Co., would be appreciated.

I am writing a book about the RUSHING FAMILY I am trying to locate as many decendents of the following people as I can so they can add their family biographies to the book. Even if they wish not to contribute to the book I would still like to know their names. The names of the ancestors are: George W. Rushing, b. 1854; Martha Rushing b. 1866 and J.R. WOODALL; Minas B. Rushing b. 1868; Robert B. Rushing b .1870; Leeman Rushing b. 1872; Julia A. Rushing b. 1875 and James RILEY; Coleman A. Rushing b. 1877; Lucy C. Rushing b. 1881 and Charles WILLIAMSON; Jinnie Rushing b. 1884 and Charles MCREE; John Sebren Rushing b. 1887; and James Blane Rushing b. 1890. If anyone knows anyone by these last names please ask them to contact me. The people I listed are children of Rueben Rushing and Clarissa Crouch, all the children were born in Crittenden County. (George Rushing was the son of Rueben's first wife, Mary Ann Long.)

Trying to locate James AXSOM and descendants. James was born in Surry Co., NC in 1858. Known to be in Princeton, KY in 1899. His whereabouts afterwards are unknown. Recent Internet search produced a death record for a child, James AXAM, under age 1, died in 1918 in Graves County, KY. James AXAM could have been related to James AXSOM. Surname found spelled many ways: AXSOM, AXIM, AXOM, AXIOM, AXAM, ETC. Any help appreciated.

Rebecca J. Morse, who was born cir 1833 in Caldwell Co., married Nehemiah A. CRAVENS on 30 March 1855. On 5 July 1856, Nehemiah Cravens was stabbed to death according to 1856 death report. "killed by design". His widow, Rebecca J. Cravens was still unmarried in the latter part of 1859, when she sold her part of her father's estate. I would like to know what happened to her. Did she remarry? Or did she die early.? Any information on the Morse family or Craven would be appreciated. Larry Martin, PO Box 2, Splendora, Tx 77372 Sun Aug 31 13:05:42 1997
