Bio Photo Researching Herron, Wagner, Ferrell, Eversole, Whitt, McDaniel, Hacker, McClure and a few others. These names are all direct family lines......Of particular interest are Laurel, Pulaski, Kenton, and Boone Counties in Kentucky.

I added several graves from the Old Burlington Cemetery in Boone County, KY. It is an historical cemetery and important to the early history in Boone County, where I live. If any of these are your family or friends and you would like to manage them, please contact me and I will gladly transfer to you.

Family belongs with family and I will gladly transfer any as long as they are not of my direct line.

RE: John Wesley Ferrell
Hi Janet,

I tried to email you a few weeks ago, but perhaps the email want into your junk email as I am not a known email contact. Just wanted to let you know my Mom has a photo of Margaret Wardrup and John Wesley Ferrell. I have a feeling the photo of John W. Ferrell may be the same one you have, though, as I recognise the photo on his profile. I will ask my sister to copy the photos and email them to me and then I can forward them you.

Kind regards,

RE: Siblings of John Wesley Ferrell
Dear Janet,
Thank you for replying. You know much more of the story of William's shooting. I only heard that some men came to the house and told John Wesley to hold their horses for them. They then went in and shot his father William and then rode away. I was also told that John Wesley and his brothers, namely Josh and Greenbury/Greenberry, were separated around the time of the Civil War and that John Wesley never saw them again. I am not sure where Greenbury fits into all this as he does not appear to be a sibling according to records.

As for the other bit of the story, I have never heard of any inheritance. I will ask my mother. Perhaps the inheritance was through John Wesley's first wife, Malisa, who I believe is your great grandmother, and that is why some money came to your grandmother. My great grandmother was John's second wife, Margaret Wardrup. Their son Clelton is my maternal grandfather. Clelton had three daughters, the eldest of which, Margaret, is my mother.

Just wondered if your research took you any further back beyond William. I believe William's middle name was Isaac and he was born in 1821. I understand that he was married to Rebecca Hammon or Hamon born 1822/23. I also found on other sites that he (or another William Isaac? )married two more times and also divorced once. I can't find the info now, but surely he couldn't have had time for all these marriages if he was shot dead in the 1860's. Have you found any mention of any other marriages?

Anyway, my grandfather always said his family was Irish. I have traced back to a William Ferrell born around 1740 in Longford County, Ireland who was killed by Indians in Virginia in 1778. Is this the same as what you have?

Take care.

Kindest regards,
Your cousin Carla

Siblings of John Wesley Ferrell
Hi Janet. My name is Carla Laver. I am the great granddaughter of John Wesley Ferrell. I have been trying to do a bit of research into the family tree. I was wondering if you happened to know the names of John's siblings. My mother thinks he had two brothers, Joshua and Greenberry/Greenbury. Also wondered if you knew the data of death of their father William. My mother said her Aunt Nola told the story that William was shot and killed at his home sometime around the Civil War. Just wondered if you had heard the same story.

Your distant relative,

Thanks for the correction on her death date, which I've made. Can you give me the source for the exact date of 13 Apr 1823? I'd like to add it to the bio. Thanks!

RE: Myrtle T. Jones - Find A Grave Memorial# 7673370
Hi Janet,

I'm not related and the memorial manager hasn't seen fit to add the information.

I was taking a chance that it would get to the right person - and it did.

I'm very glad it was both useful and meaningful to your research.

Myrtle T. Jones - Find A Grave Memorial# 7673370
Hello - I had asked the memorial manager to add this into her BIO: It has not yet (and possibly won't) been added.

Since you had left information as to her grandparents, I thought you might be researching this family and this may be of use to you.

Gaye Hill

The London Sentinel newspaper, London, KY
Thursday 4 January 1917;Page 3, Column 4


On the night of October 27*, 1916, death stole silently into the home of Mr. and Mrs. Speed Jones and took from them their darling Myrtle. Myrtle was a sweet child, the blossom of the home, and loved and petted by all who knew her.

Although never blessed with speech or hearing, for some cause unknown to us, but God doeth all things well, and in His infinite wisdom He saw fit to place her here in this cold-hearted world of sin only to be mown down as a flower on a frosty morn.

Dear parents, weep not for Myrtle, for she is singing around the beautiful throne of God, where her tongue is unties and her ears are unstopped. Let us all strive to meet her in the great beyond, where death , pain and parting are felt and feared no more.

Written by a loving uncle,
Will Jones

Hello 126714489

Below is what the flower left says.

Lillie Eversole is buried in East Bernstadt, NOT blackwater.
- Janet Herron Tucker

At one time this person was in the wrong Pilgrims Rest over in Bush.
Which is also called Pilgrims Rest cemetery .

Find A Grave Fixed this memorial by moving her to the correct cemetery.

2 of the flowers still say this person is wrong.
I am only letting you know it has been fixed.
