RE: Sarah J Isaacs/Bicknell
Hi Sandy,

Yes that is my best guess as well, that she is the daughter of Linville Isaacs and Elizabeth. I noted in the 1880 Census image, that Martha J and Sarah J, our twins.

I did note on that Sarah Jane Isaacs married Huston Bicknell on December 1888, on the property of Linville Isaacs and one of the witnesses was Curtis Isaacs, listed as a brother on the 1880 Census.

I am making an assumption that she got married at her parents' house, and I add that with the 1900 and 1910 Census that it states Huston and Sarah years married puts it around 1888.

The mystery of where she went after Hallie Bicknell (married name = Richardson) was born in June 1912 is why I'm fascinated by it all. She seems to just disappear. I noted, and I believe you put the entry in for Huston, that his obituary makes mention only of his second wife; which isn't a total surprise given his second wife probably helped write that obituary.

Thank you for the help.

Sarah J Isaacs/Bicknell
Hi Sandy,

I'm trying to figure out what happened to Huston Bicknell's first wife. Huston would be my Great-Great-Great Grandfather; with Alson being my Great-Great, and Frances being my Great-Grandmother.

I seem to run into dead-ends everywhere I go about Sarah J. I know she had a child in 1912, Rosa, and by 1918 Huston was remarried, so not sure when she died. Thank you for any assistance.

John Cates
I wonder if you can tell me how you know that John's father was Ellis Cates? I tried to find them in the census and got nowhere. My ancestor Charles Cates (1810 TN)married Nancy Willis, whose sister Elizabeth was born in Estill Co KYin 1818. I have been trying every way I can think of o learn more about their parents an wondered if the relationship might go back to Estill Co. They were in Missouri by 1830 and related families include Martin, Rose, Poteet, Gilmore, Harrington and more.

Levi Richardson's father
On Levi Richardson's memorial you have listed his father as James Richardson. This is incorrect, his parents were John P. Richardson, born Apr. 17,1818, Clark Co. Kentucky, died in 1892, Estill Co., KY. and Nancy Freeman born abt. 1823, Estill Co., KY, date of death is unknown. Levi Richardson was my grandfather. Would you please make the corrections to his memorial. Thank you. Norma Kruger

re: Kinner Family
My great Uncle gave me a old bible with the marriage of Hezekiah Kinner (July 3 1828-Nov 25 1907) and Samantha Sidwell Kinner (June 23 1845- March 21 1926 )in Ohio in it. Hezikiah and Samantha had three chidren Jessie Lee (1869-1919), Addie, (1871-1933) and John Wesley (1873-1964).His father was born in 1803 John Kinner.His mother was Catherine Vandemont. Samantha Sidwell Kinners father was John Sidwell!1809-1901 and her mother was Melvina Cutter (1817-1905).One of Hezikiahs sons John Wesley Kinner (1873-1964) had a son Edgar Kinner Dec 29,1903-1995 was my great uncle. Johns other son Robert born 1898 was my grandfather. Robert lived in Florida til he died and Edgar lived in Wisconsin til he died. Edgar had no children. Robert had 3 children Lloyd, Wesley and Doris who was my mother. If anyone has any information on the Kinners or the Sidwells before 1800 thats as far back as I can track. Hope this info helps some of you.

RE: Kinner Family
Do you have information about Kinner burial sites. I ca't seem to find some on here and the file I have from years ago cannot be accessed. I am currently using which has information however it seems to be rather muddled for some of the Kinners. Feel free to email or even call me at 513-417-2034. Talk to you soon, Michael

Anderson Kindred's birth year
I couldn't read the dates on Anderson's Tombstone photo, but I noticed that you had his birth as Sep 22, 1822 when all of the census information from 1850 thru 1880 would put the year of his birth as 1821 with a birthday of Sep 28.

In addition, I've found 2 different Death years for him: 1898 and 1899, and places of death: Estill Co, KY and Kansas.

Can you clear this up?

Hope you're well, haven't talked to you in a while.

RE: Silas T Reed
Please click the "EDIT" tab at the top of his memorial, then click "Suggest a Correction, etc.". It saves a lot of time for everyone involved because Find A Grave automatically sends me an email with the memorial number, your contributor number if you have one, and other info. This way I don't have to write the info down or switch from screen to screen. I'll be happy to make the change if you follow the guideline above. Thanks!!!

Sandy, they couldn't have married in 1853 if Uncle John was born in 1848 and I believe she is buried in the Evans=Gentry Cem, the Old Boian Gentry cem, on the old farm. Let me know, Send my love to you and Sam

William H Southers
Hello Sandy, Thank you for posting the Grave of William H. Southers along with his birth and death info, including his obituary. (#14952578) However, there is a duplicate posting for William (#41539683 submitted by Sherry)which gives no location info and has no obituary, but does have a great picture of the headstone and also links to his wife, Martha and her headstone picture as well as to a daughter, Dorcas. Is there some way you can coordinate with her and combine the info into one great and informative posting? Just a suggestion. Carmen Cavallaro
