Update Silas English Memorial
Hello, so glad to hear from you again. Is Elizabeth Miller English the same as Sarah Elizabeth English? I did not know she was Sarah. Just wanted to make sure. If the lady removes the photo from Silas's memorial, I hope she will post it on Elizabeth's memorial. Thank you for keeping me posted. Hope all is well with you and your family. We're about to float away with our "drought-breaking" rains here in Southern Oklahoma - but we're really glad to get them.
Our best to you....Radell Jean - 5/28/15

Maker's Mark
Maker's Mark is even better...very picturesque.
The setting is beautiful and the drive over in that part of Kentucky is exciting but you may need a GPS!

I see you know this fine fellow. I think he works at Fort Knox, maybe on the reservation. He can probably help you if you need any photos from there tomorrow.

Thanks for the note Sam. I just saw it and it is after 10 p.m. No, I am in Michigan.

I do not know if you have any burials in Ft Knox, but I think this is the one week-end all year that they let people in to visit the cemeteries. I think some of them are very old.

I hope you are able to go to the English-Miller cemetery and check out the Silas English stone that we had a ? about.

Are you going to be visiting any other cemeteries in the area?

Have a nice week-end in "My old KY Home". If you get a chance to go to the Jim Beam Farms, it is a great tour They are open on Monday Here is the info:
526 Happy Hollow Road
Clermont, KY 40110

It is too late to call you tonight, but if you have any questions, my brother, Kevin Addington, knows a lot about places & people in Hardin Co. He has lived there all his life.

RE: Elizabeth English
Sam, thank you for catching that. I checked the cemetery database and her DOB was 1838. I've made the correction.

Charles English, (1726-1805)
One of my relatives, Anne Richardson,(1735-1830), was married to Charles English. I thought you might find the following will interesting:

"Charles English was born about 1726 in Hanover County, Virginia.  In 1750 Charles married Anne (last name unknown) [Richardson], who was born about 1730.  Charles and Anne had eight children that we know about.  The children were born in various counties in Virginia as the family migrated west into Kentucky where they settled temporarily in Lincoln County.  An early map of Lincoln County shows English Station located on the banks of Dicks River near Crab Orchards located on the Wilderness Trail that Charles established when he first went to Kentucky.  They finally located in Garrard County. 

There is a will made by Charles English, dated October 28, 1801, and recorded in Garrard County, August, 1803.  The will reads as follows, “In the name of God.  Amen.  I Charles English of the County of Garrard and State of Kentucky being weak in body but of sound mind and disposing memory do constitute and ordain this my last will and testament in manner and form following Viz_____First of all my desire is that all my Just Debts and financial expenses be paid______2ndly I give and bequeath unto my  beloved wife, Anne English, so long as she may live in this mortal life, three negroes Viz, Winney and the Child Isaac and Dolly also the privilege of the plantation where on I now live together with the timber on the said tract of land with the stock, plantation (?) House and Kitchen furniture and the crop that may be on the said plantation at the time that I may die also fifty pounds a part of a bond that I have on Spencer Griffith, Nathan Huston and Joseph Lee’s together with all the interest that may be due on said bond until paid______3rdly  I give and bequeath unto my Grand Children Hannah Turner and Stephen English fifty pounds each as soon as the money can be collected by my Executors hereafter mentioned______4thly  My will and desire is that all my negroes and other estate which heretofore has not been willed (at the death of my wife Anne English) be equally divided between my Children, Susannah Richardson, Martha Richardson, Stephen English, Mary Smith’s heirs as one child, Anne May, Rachel Stephens and Lucy East.  Lastly I do constitute and appoint Stephen English and Jesse Richardson Executors to this my last will and testament hereby revoking all other wills by me heretofore made in witness whereof I have herewith set my hand and affix my seal this 28th Day of October 180l.”  This will was witnessed by William Jennings Jun. and William Jennings Sen."

There is a deposition dated August 1829 stating: Order to summon Rachel & Jacob Stephens, James East (wife Lucy Richardson deceased), William Richardson, Amos Richardson, Israel Richardson, Ann & David Lawson, Ruth & Cason Hicks, Susan Hicks & Walter Hicks, 4 Smiths & Jonathan English to appear in Lancaster, Kentucky.  All were nonhabitants of Garrard County, Kentucky.
