William Mattingly
RE: John Hornell
I think this is John Horrell (another surname which gets spelled in various ways). John was born 10-27-1792 in Breckinridge County and died on 10-9-1865 in Breckinridge. He had a daughter named Frances who married Charles Felix Mattingly.

Francis was his second wife (married 02 Oct 1878) and born about 1835. I lose her and I don't think she had children.

RE: Mattingly's
Yes, I was searching for them. I knew some information but not where they were buried. Mary's full name was Mary Appolone (Baptized Apolonia Mattingly at St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Daviess County, Kentucky on 12-25-1825 by Rev. Elisha J. Durbin; Age 1 month; Sponsor Margaret Mattingly; parents James and Mary Mattingley.)

William's middle name/initial gets twisted around in records but it appears his middle name was Madison. William and Mary were not closely related although they were cousins. Their common ancestor is Thomas Mattingly, about 1627.

RE: Lucretia
Yes!! I am very interested in more Cannon photos. You have gone over & beyond anything I thought I would get, when I requested photos from Axtel.

I'm also interested in just about all the photos for Mt. Carmel. It's been a bit difficult getting photos from Breckinridge Co.

Again, thank you so much!

Rebecca Slack & John Washington Nall
James, I am wanting photos of the headstones for the husband and wife below. There is a note at the bottom. I realize they may not be in Mt Zion. I did go there this summer when in KY and could not locate the stone, but I was by myself and ran into some personal difficulties when searching. I know you take a large number of photos of many stones in "Hardin County, so I thought you might be able to find them, The older part of the cemetery on the far back right down slope, might contain their stone. Thanks for any help you might offer. Diane

BURIAL: It is unsure where John Nall is buried. There are two stone with
identical information on them located in Kentucky. One is in the Mt.Zion
Cemetery, Elizabethtown, Ky, with the dates listed here plus the inscription
"John Nall, Husband of Rebecca". The second one is located in the Owen's Family
Cemetery which now lies within the Fort Knox Military Reservation. It bears his
name and the dates listed here.

RE: Bleakley Hart Cemetery Fort Knox
Thanks for getting back with me James. I would love to have any photographs you might have of the cemetery. My email is .

I have contacted the Ft. Knox people and I have the name of the range guy and his contact number and email. I fear this may be a dry run and that is why I was trying the people that have taken photos at the cemetery to see if anyone remembered Harts out there. I didn't want to bother the fort people unless I thought there might be something to see.

Thank you again for your help.
