Searching for descendants of Chesley CONANT/CANANT
b ca 1790 - was in Laurens Co, SC 1820. He was in Williamsburg KY
(I do not know what county Williamsburg was in at that time) in 1830's.
He was in Laurel Co, KY in 1850. His second wife, Elizabeth COX,
was from KY and they were married 1833. Their son, Milton Allen CONANT
was born 1833 in Williamsburg KY and his wife Amanda Jane McBEATH was born
1825 in Somerset, KY. She was the daughter of Haven McBEATH and Mary
WITHERS. Their grandchildren were in CONANT, KY. My husband is descended
from Chesley CONANT/CANANT and his third wife, named Elizabeth ______.
They went to Mississippi and their son William CANANT was born in MS and
died in Cullman Co, AL. The CANANT family is quite large in Cullman
Co, and my father in law was from there. If anyone knows of
these families or can offer any suggestions I will be very happy to hear
from you. We want to know more about Chesley and his ancestors, and hope
to find somemore clues.
J. Orton Sat, 06 Dec 1997
I am looking for any information on a John
V. ORTON or ORTEN, who was born in North Carolina in ????, and later migrated
to Tennessee/Kentucky, and married an Mary Ann Thomas. No other information
was known or passed on from the family on John V. ORTON. I have since found
a John V. ORTON in the 1840 census in Carter County, Tennessee, with two
males in the household ( 1 20-29, and 1 40-49 ) and four females in the
household ( 1 0-5, 1 5-9, 1 10-15, 1 40-49 ). Not much
information has been acquired from that point,
until 1867 when in the Laurel County, Kentucky marriage book, it is recorded
that Mary A. Thomas married John V. ORTEN on July 14, 1867. In the 1870
census for Laurel County, Kentucky in the London Voting Precinct,
it shows a John L. ORTON from North Carolina, age 75 living in the household
of John Cloyd. Also in that census it shows that in the Raccon Voting Precinct/Mershons
Cross Roads, a Mary Orton, age 42 with two children
Harriett, age 9 and James, age 3. John ORTON
and Mary ORTON had a son named Jesse Green ORTON, supposedly born in Owsley
County on March 8, 1871, and later married an Malinda Catherine Overbay
in 1893 in Rockcastle County, Kentucky. Jesse died on November 22, 1945
Rockcastle County, Kentucky. Any information
on John V. ORTON/ORTEN would be appreciated. Thank you.
GRAY, GREGORY, FRASIER, LUNSFORD
Sat, 29 Nov 1997
Looking for families of GRAY, GREGORY, FRASIER,
LUNSFORD in and around Laurel County. My grandfather ELI GRAY
was born in CLAY county in 1872, but lived in and around London after a
period of time. His father was JASPER NEWTON GRAY (family name) and
mother was HELEN HARRIS. They married in TN in 1859. He had a sister
CLARA who married WM GREGORY. Brothers WILLIAM, MALIN DUNCAN and JASPER.
Sister FLORENCE. My grandfather left KY around the mid-1880's
due to a problem that family whispers attributed to a feud where a sheriff
was killed. The whispered feud was supposed to be between the PHILPOTTS
and the GRAYS but can find no record of it, although ELI is listed on an
1880 census as living with an aunt and uncle, which would explain the rumor
that his father died (or was killed) and his mother did not care for the
children. Any help in locating family with the above links, please
contact me. Thank you.

James I. WEAVER (b 28Jan1818 - d 15Sep1888),
his wife Rhoda S. WEAVER (JONES) came to Texas from Laurel County, KY sometime
around the mid- 1860's. His father, David D. WEAVER (b 29Apr1791 - d 18Jan1854)
and his father Samuel WEAVER (b 26Nov1755 - d 14 Nov1842) are both believed
to be buried in Laurel County. Possibly Bush Cemetary. Would appreciate
info on any of these folks and/or their kin.

I am currently working on the "Scalf" line
of my family tree. The Scalf family has roots in many Kentucky counties.
If you have a Scalf link I'd like to hear from you! Also, will share what

Hi, I'm trying to locate information on my
great grandfather. His name is James Howell and he was a member of the
Kentucky Volunteers - Army of the Potomac (Manasses). He died in 1915 around
the age of 87. His wife's first name may have been Julia. He had a daughter
named Rebecca that was born in Knox County, Kentucky on April 1, 1867.
She married William Miller on September 1, 1881 in Pineville, Kentucky.
Thank you for any help on any of the people.
What a "wonderful" web site this is.
