Noah Tryon photo
Aunt Mary's mother was a Tryon, granddaughter of Noah Tryon and Mary Ann Cooley. The photo I posted was identified by the granddaughter of Noah as being of him. I will pull out the photos and see what I can find out about this being one of the other Noahs.

Samuel Buttrey/Buttery
Hi Becky, are you positive that your Samuel Buttrey (19196187) in the Martin Cem. is the son of George & Eliza and not the son of Robert & Evalyn?

I ask this because there are two Samuel Buttreys born in 1885 Clay County:
(1) to George & Eliza Buttery
(2) to Robert & Evalyn Benge Buttry.

According to my research:

George & Eliza's son is listed on the 1900 Clay census as being born in Dec 1885

Robert & Eva's son is listed on the 1900 Clay census as being born in Aug 1885

WWI Draft Registration lists a Sam Buttry as being born 16 Aug 1885 and next of kin being Laura Buttry (should be Robt & Eva's son)

WWI Draft Registration lists Samuel Buttery as being born 17 Dec 1885 (should be Geo & Eliza's son)

Social Security Death Index & the Ky Death Index lists a Samuel Buttery born 17 Dec 1885 and dying 2 Dec 1967 Clay Co (should be Geo & Eliza's son)

KY Death Index lists a Samuel Buttrey age 79, dying 16 May 1965 Laurel Co (he would have been 80 in Aug 1965 - should be Robt & Eva's son)

Find A Grave lists

Samuel L. Buttrey 1886 - 16 May 1965 - 1919618 buried with wife Laura Muncy -
Should be Robt & Eva's son

Sam Buttrey 1885 - 1967 - 146233222 buried with wife Mary Elizabeth Estridge -
Should be Geo & Eliza's son

Since you've listed Samuel (1886-1965) as the son of George & Eliza I've been confused that I'm missing something in my research. That's why I am questioning you about his parents. Please help me get these two Sam's straight.

RE: Buttry family
Thanks for responding! Yes, Buttry has been spelled many ways. Wish I knew which was correct. My 3rd -gr0grandfather's grave stone has Buttry but 3 of his sons (all died during Civil War) have military markers with Buttrey. f you give me your grandmother and any other Buttry relatives, I will try to find a connection.

Hi, Where do you fit into the Buttry family? My Buttry family dates to 1750's in NC and maybe MD and VA before that. Some did move from NC to TN and maybe KY about 1800.

I am preparing a book on Henry Crist, and including information on his descendants, as well as the descendants of his siblings. Minerva Cochran, wife of James Madison Polk, was granddaughter of Jacob Crist, brother of Henry.

Would REALLY like to hear from you.

Over the past three years a group of Volunteers from Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 594, have been making Memorial Frames for each of the 79 men with Connections to our 5 County area. We are trying to locate family or friends of our Fallen Veteran's listed on our local wall. We are doing bio's with a picture to be put on display at the Naples Military Museum at the Naples Airport.

We are looking for any history you may be able to provide and a picture to honor our falling Veterans.

On November 9, 2014, we are having a dedication this year, at the Military Museum, at the Naples Airport. We are having various news media from our area to honor our fallen men.

Thank you

rogeneah Crist in McGee Cemetery
If Rogeneah is not related to you, would you consider a transfer to me. She is the only person listed, that was listed in the McGee cemetery in spencer county Kentucky. I have had find a grave change the name of the cemetery to the Patrick McGee cemetery. All of the people listed there were related to McGee Family, my husbands family. If you do not wish to transfer, would you consider changing the cemetery to the Patrick McGee pioneer cemetery, so she can be listed with the family. thank you Pat

John and Martha Durham

I've been researching part of my family in Kentucky and have come across your memorial of my fifth great-grandparents John and Martha Durham that are listed in Bellevue Cemetery in Danville:

John: 25295452
Martha: 25295595

I've also noticed those two listed with their son Thomas and his wife Frances (Moss) Durham in a cemetery called 'Durham Cemetery' also listed in Danville. The man who made those memorials said he took the reference from a book on old Kentucky cemeteries and listed the name as Durham Cemetery and the location 4 miles out of Danville. He had assumed it was a family farm.

I was wondering if you had any insight into which is correct? Clearly there are markers for the parents in Bellevue, but are they real or only memorials? The list online maintained by the city has the earliest interment as 1859, 40 years after they died, but that's not conclusive.

I'm not sure if you can help with this, but I would appreciate learning if you knew anything about John and Martha Durham or have ever come across the marker for Thomas and Frances.

Best Regards,

Matthew A. Brewster

RE: Jackson Transfer
Done, I see in the book where he died in 2000! Wow, it is hard for one to know which is right. Glad that I could transfer and if you need anymore that I have listed just let me know. I am not related to anyone in Bellevue Cemetery. I added a photo for Charles D and Susie Moore Wingate Durham.

I will transfer the memorial today, Becky. I usually try to take photos of older graves before they are lost forever. I am always so happy when a descendant finds the graves I've posted online. So glad to be of help.
