My three greats grandmother Elizabeth Taylor Stephens and her husband Jackey Bowman Stephens were murdered in Madison County Missouri 1821 along with two young sons. Two little girls survived Bethsadie Granbury, and Mary E. (Polly) Stephens. Moses Taylor came from Butler County Kentucky and got the two girls and became their guardian and took them to Butler County until they were married in 1828 and 1829. I think Moses was the father of Elizabeth and the grandfather of the two girls. Does anyone know if this was Moses Taylor Jr.? Need confirmation. Jean Robison

I recently learned of a GREENVILLE WILLIS who lived in Butler co, KY in the mid 1800's. He married Julian Ann Phelps in 1844. I believe I am connected to his ancestry. If I am correct, his ancestors came from Patrick Co, VA and he would be a grandson of Joseph WILLIS and Sarah NOWLIN, also from Patrick Co, VA. The name "Greenville" was frequently given to sons of the WILLIS family, and our family oral tradition indicates that many of our WILLIS cousins migrated into KY, OH and WVa.

I would be interested in corresponding with anyone who is interested in this group of WILLIS'.Jan Willis Williams, 5332 Deep Springs Drive, Stone Mtn, GA 30087

I've been looking for more information on George Keesee Cook for some time now.

George Keesee Cook, b. Jan. 5, 1792 in "Kentucky" when it was actually part of "Virginia" territory. His 1850 census in Indiana lists his birthplace as "VA".

He married Sarah ("Sally") b. in 1793 in Kentucky. They had at least two children in KY: Dorcas b. 1825 and George Robert, b. 1830. Others were born in IN. He fought in the Battle of New Orleans, War of 1812. He moved to IN in 1833.

I found some "George"'s in the 1820 KY census:  Butler Co., #313, #319

                                                Lincoln Co., #77

                                                Barren Co., #6

                               1830 census:     Butler Co., #86

                                                Hart Co., #206

                                                Lincoln Co., #366

                                                Trigg Co., #29


Just indices though, no specifics. Do you have access to KY census records? If so, I'd really appreciate knowning which, if any, of these "George's" may be mine. If not, could you forward this to anyone who does? Thanks for your help! Sincerely, Ron Bryan

I would like to contact the descendants of John and Frances (WOODY) WALLER both born in Pittsylvania County, Virginia. John WALLER was in the War of 1812. John WALLER and Frances WOODY were married in Caswell County, North Carolina in 1819. John WALLER died about 1833 in Williamson County, Tennessee. After John's death, Frances moved her family to Butler County, Kentucky. They lived there until about 1853 at which time they moved to Cape Girardeau, Missouri. In her application for Bounty Land, Frances states there were six children born to her and John. I have only got information on two of these children: My great grandmother Sarah (WALLER) WHEELER and John Jr. John WALLER Jr married Hester YOUNG in Butler County, Kentucky in 1847.

I am searching for any information regarding Jesse H. Hall, born Oct 3, 1825, KY and died Feb. 15, 1903 in Butler Co., KY. He was first married to Sarah in 1850, then married Mahala Knight in 1854. They had Alexander, Netter, Mary, William, Sarah P., Elizabeth and Henry J. I believe that Jesse H. Hall's father is Edward S. Hall, born ca 1787 in VA and living in Todd Co., KY in 1820, 1830, 1840 and 1850. In 1850 Edward S. Hall is living with Robert, Archy, Sarah and William. Again, I am not certain that Edward S. Hall is the father of Jesse H. Hall, but any information about any of these people would be greatly appreciated. Keri Hall Sims - alec@digitalexp.com.
