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.

I see you have removed the information I have added after spending the summer in Clay County researching Claiborne. I guess you talked with Corsette and believed her memory. I am sadden by this but so be it. I'll take my research over her memory. This is quite upsetting to us.
|Tina Baker||RE: Claiborne Hacker 90160779|
Sorry it has taken a while for this reply. I am in disagreement with your assessment of my 4th great grandfather final burial. Although there is some gray area, my family feels most certain this is where he is buried. He lived the majority of his life there and his wife is buried one hollow over. His children and grandchildren are buried in nearby cemeteries( and live there as well). Thank you for your email

Thank you for contacting me. You are correct and that is reflected in my family tree, so I can only imagine I accepted an edit adding them as her parents because she is my 3rd ggm and I know better lol thanks again! I will link her properly as soon as I get back on my desktop. Best wishes! Teresa
|Carla Laver||RE: John Wesley Ferrell|
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.
|Carla Laver||RE: Siblings of John Wesley Ferrell|
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?
Your cousin Carla
|Carla Laver||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,
|Bev Golden||Elizabeth Ferrell Thomas|
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!
|Dean Gibbs||RE: Gibbs Family|
NO....but I remember a Sherman Gibbs living there when I did...as a student at Berea and a couple years after that. 1969-1975. I married in Madison Co. and our son was born at Patti Clay.
