The Waddle family has many connections in Pulaski County, but
your information on Whiteaker's comes close to some information
we received about a Judge John Whiteaker who was also born in
Washington Co, VA on March 22, 1795. His father was a Giles
Whiteaker, mother unknown. Judge John married Dorcas (unknown
surname) born 08-17-1884. They lived in Iowa and are both
reportedly buried in or around Iowa. Any information that ties to
these people would be appreicated. Thanks, Dan

In Pulaski Co., KY in Sept 1844, Emily Rainwater (daughter of
Nancy & Barthomomew) married Alexander Eastham (some records say
Alexandria). He died of tuberculosis in Dec 1859. It *appears*
that his brother, Zachariah, married Alexander's widow in 1877
after the death of his first wife, Sally Barrow. The marriage
record indicates that it is a 2nd
marriage for both parties.
My best information is that Emily lived to 1914, but I've also
run across a marriage record for a Zachariah's 3rd
marriage in 1883.
So the question is: did Emily and Zachariah divorce, or is the
marriage to Lucinda Foster a different Zachariah

My grandmother was Hattie STEPHENS BENNETT. She was born on
Bernard Ridge on 8/7/1909. Her siblings were Olza, OTA, Hulen,
Eula, Gordon and Gobel. There was also a sister who died as a
baby who is buried in a cemetary off of 127, south of the town
square. Their parents were Lorenzo Dow STEPHENS (born 12/8/1860,
died 10/27/1927) and Margaret C. COFFEY STEPHENS (born 3/26/1867,
no date of death is known, however, we approximate 1948). They
are both buried in Lucenda Cemetary. Margaret was known as "Aunt
Marg" by everyone, including her grandchildren. She had a brother
named John Cleveland Coffey, who was know to all as "Uncle John".
Their parents were John A. Coffey and Elizabeth Popplewell. Dow
had a brother named Elex STEPHENS who was born 04/25/1864 and
died 6/7/1949. He is buried in Concord Cemetary. Dow's parents
were Nancy WHITTLE STEPHENS and either Belnia/Belvia/Belva
STEPHENS (I can't quite read the death certificate). Dow's
parents could have come from one of the surrounding counties to
Russell County, or may be listed in one of the counties that
Russell County was formed from in 1825. I have tried desparately
to find info on Dow's mother and father. Does anyone know
anything about this family line?
My grandfather was Carsie Buell BENNETT. He was born in Ono
Ridge, Russell Co., KY. His father was William Thomas "Tom"
BENNETT and his mother was Lizzie Pearl (TARTER). Tom was born
10/3/1878 and died 10/14/1950 in Russell Co. Lizzie was born
1/3/1886 and died 5/20/1971 in Russell Co. We have reason to
believe that the line continues back as follows: Tom's parents
were Abner (born c.1852) and Elizabeth (HOLDER) (born c4/1848).
Abner's parents were Green C. and Emeline (DUNBAR). Green was
born c1828 in Adair or Russell Co. Green's parents were Charles
(born c1794 in VA) and Mary (FLANAGAN) (born c1798 in NC).
Charles and Mary show up in the Adair County census records in
1823. I would truly appreciate any info on this family line as

Connection to Peter Burkett. Peter Burkett md Mary Ann Vanhook

Henderson-Atwood Birth records
Posted by joyce <jsaylor@pop.uky.edu> on Mon, 26 Oct 1998
The 1900 census for *Casey* County, KY shows JOHN W HENDERSON and
his wife SYNTHIA ATWOOD (m. 1896). They are living with his
natural son, JOHN W HENDERSON, 24, and his step-son (her son?)
We are trying to find birth records for the sons. They did not
show up in Casey Co. records, so we are hoping for information in
surrounding counties.
I believe, though my husband is not convinced yet, that WILLIAM
ATWOOD, took the name WILLIAM HENDERSON (perhaps through
adoption?) since the 1910 Casey Co. census shows WILLIAM
HENDERSON and family living with his widowed mother, SYNTHIA (and
the ages match the 1900 census).
Can anyone help us?

Posted by Arnold Taylor <astaylor@fuse.net> on Sun, 25 Oct 1998
Elizabeth Taylor, daughter of Richmond, son of Britton, was born
in Tennessee about 1843; I am informed that it was 13 January
1843. She married William R. Keith (50, born Wayne County, 2d
marriage) in Pulaski County on 2 December 1873. It was her first
marriage and she was 28. They were married at the home of Jacob
Taylor (no doubt her brother, Jacob R. Taylor). They lived in
Wayne County. On 28 December 1891, by deed recorded in Pulaski
Deed Book 43, p.217, her brother, Britton Taylor, a resident of
Pulaski County, Kentucky, and Elizabeth "Keeth", a resident of
"Wain" County, conveyed to Elizabeth a 200 and a 25 acre tract on
the East side of the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River. An
Alex Keith was boarding with Richmond and Sarah (Richmond's
second wife, not Elizabeth's mother)at the time of the 1880
Pulaski census.I have been informed by a kind source that the
following were Elizabeths children.
Sarah Keith; Born 19 January 1875, died 30 July 1906.Richmond
Calvin Keith;Born 10 August 1876, died 25 February 1938. He
married (1) Lola Morrow and (2) Sally Jane Jones. He is said to
have had eleven children.
John Mose Keith;Born 30 April 1878 and died 30 May 1898.
Sennie Ann Keith;Born November 1877 and died in 1963.
I am interested in having any and all information about
Elizabeth, her siblings and her descendents and have plenty of
ancestral info about her to give. Richmond started out in Whitley
Co, went to TN, and wound up in Pulaski. Arnold Taylor

Pulaski Co. Query
Posted by Peggy Stringer Lester <jlester@preferred.com> on Fri, 23 Oct 1998
I am searching for my STRINGER ancestors who went to Pulaski Co.,
KY from North Carolina in the early 1800s. William Stringer died
there 1840-50 and had several children living there. David
Stringer also was there about this time. Susannah Stringer
married Samuel Burton ca. 1801 in Pulaski Co. and died there in
1856. Reuben Stringer possibly was also there ca. 1809-10 along
with sons Robert, Reuben, and Edward.
Winston Stringer left Virginia between 1880 and 1890 and migrated
to Pulaski Co. He died there in 1896.
Any help with any of these would be much appreciated.

Hello Brad,
I think I have looked at your Pulaski County Heath's before, but
I'll try again. According to the 1850 census in Robertson County,
TN, my ancestor William Heath was born about 1815 in North
Carolina. He had married Caroline Ayres in Robertson County in
1842. Didn't your Thomas have a younger brother William born
about 1815? Could my William in TN be your Thomas' brother? If
your William was already in Pulaski County in 1815, could it be
that the area was still considered North Carolina at the time?
Maybe that would explain why my William told the census-taker he
was born in North Carolina. Please let me know what you think.

They were near each other in Ashe Co, NC and then in Pulaski Co,

haven't gotten a document to prove this theory. Did your Daniel
marry Honor PENNINGTON about 1822? Elizabeth married Wells
PENNINGTON, believed to be brother of Honor PENNINGTON, about
1800/1801 (my guess). Elizabeth & Wells are my 4th

Christine, sometimes called Christina, was born about 1610-1613.
This would have made her somewhere between ten and fourteen years old
when she arrived in America. Little has been written about her, other
than that she married Dirck in 1630 or 1631, and bore eight children.
Dirck and Christine lived in her parents' household until 1638. She was
a sponsor in baptisms at the Dutch Reformed Church in 1643 and
1650. The rest of her story must be inferred from what we know about her
husband and children. Her last child, Jennekin, was born in 1653. There
was no further record of her after 1663, although she may have lived
into the 1670's.
Maria was born about 1613, probably in France but possibly in
Holland. Maria married Jan Roos about 1631. They had one son, Gerrit
Jansen Roos. Franklin Roosevelt descended from this son [his great-great
granddaughter married Isaac Roosevelt in 1726]. Jan died about
In 1634 she married Abraham Ver Planck. Abraham may have just
arrived that year [he was possibly a cousin of J.A. Planck, who witnessed
the antenuptial agreement above]. Maria and Abraham lived at the
Vigne household until Damen took over. They bought land across the
Hudson at Paulus Hook [now Jersey City]. They had a farm and two cows, and
leased four acres to two tobacco planters.
The 1643 Indian war forced Maria and Abraham to seek the safety
of the fort at Manhattan. The family continued to own the land at Paulus
Hook until 1699, but never went back there to live. They bought a lot
from brother-in-law Van Tienhoven at Smits Vly in 1649, near Pearl
Street and Maiden Lane, and built a house there. They no longer farmed, but
leased their land holdings and entered into the fur trade. This business
took Abraham up the Hudson and down to the Delaware River. In 1664,
when the English fleet showed up on the Hudson River, Abraham was one of
the signers of the petition requesting that Peter Stuyvesant
surrender. A fight with the English would have destroyed New Amsterdam. The
people were more interested in keeping their homes than keeping
Stuyvesant as their leader. He fell onto financial hard times in the
1680's. Maria died in 1689. Abraham died in 1691. They had nine children:
Abigail [1635] - m. Adriaen Van Laer about 1660, died before 1672
Guillaume [Guleyn] [1637] - married Hendrickje Wessels on 1 June
1668. They had 7 children: Samuel, Jacobus, Abraham, Johannis,
Benjamin, Anna and Guleyn. He was a merchant and a City Alderman. He was
only 49 years old when he died in 1684.
Catalyna [1638] - married David Pieterse Schuyler on 13 October
1657. Their descendants included Theodore Roosevelt and Eleanor
Roosevelt Isaac [1641] - baptized 16 June 1641, died young
Susanna [1642] - baptized 25 May 1642, married Martin Van Waert
on 4 December 1660
Jacomyntjie [1644] - baptized 6 July 1644, probably died young
Ariantje [1646] - baptized 2 December 1646, married Melgert
Wynantse Vanderpoel Hillegond [1648] - baptized 1 November 1648, married
David Davidse Ackerman in 1680. Thomas Alva Edison descended from their
daughter Mary, who married Swain Ogden. Their granddaughter Sarah married
John Edison, Thomas Edison's great-grandfather, in 1792. Edison's father
was Samuel Ogden Edison, Jr. Isaac [1651] - baptized 26 February 1651, died
1729. He married Abigail Uytenbogart about 1680. They lived in Albany,
where he was a shoemaker.
They had 8 children: Isaac, Abigail, Jacob, Dirkje, Guleyn,
David, Catalyntje and Rachel.
NOTE: There was a "Gulilan Verplanck" who was the first president
of the Bank of New York. Do we know how he was related?
The youngest daughter, Rachel, was born in Leiden, Holland, and
was baptized on March 16, 1623 at the Leiden Walloon Church.
Translation from French: "Baptized 16 March 1623 [n.s.], Rachel daughter of
Guillain Vigne'. Witnesses Henri Lambert, Pierre de Fuche, and Marguerite
In 1639 Rachel had the misfortune to marry Cornelis Van
Tienhoven. Although he was a highly-placed Dutch West India Company
official, he turned out to be a murdering, philandering scoundrel. Cornelis
drowned or absconded in 1656, leaving Rachel a 33-year-old widow with
three young children and pregnant with a fourth. He also left a great
deal of property and three houses.

Spooky Allen Chaney Story
"The Spell" Story of Allen Chaney as told by Minnie Mayfield.
Composed by Virginia Banks for the descendants of Allen Chaney.
Well children you may believe this or take it with the Proverbial
Grain of Salt, But having listened to Aunt Minnie's colorful tale
of witchery, I can truly say it was very real to me. In order to
picture the scene in your mind it would help to visit the quiet
countryside surrounding what is now the Chaney Cemetery. It was
in the general vicinity that the story took place. At the home of
your Great Great Great-Grandfather Allen Chaney's home. This
story as seen thru the eyes of a young and impressionable girl
name *Rindy Barnes, your Great Great Great-Grandmother. Rindy and
a friend often attended Prayer Meetings on Saturday or Sunday
Evenings at Uncle Allen's home. Having heard of their fine voices
and the fact that they owned HYMN-BOOK he would often ask them to
sing. One evening, walking barefoot along a dusty path toward
Uncle Allen's, shoes slung over their shoulders and a hymn-book
in their arm, they saw a tall gaunt man standing in the doorway
of Uncle Allen's home motioning them them to stay put and be
quiet. Creeping closer to Uncle Allen's home and peering in the
window they could see a man suspended in midair, as if lying on a
bed, spinning round and round. Rindy exclaimed, "It's Uncle
Allen." The girls, noses pressed to the window, silent and
disbelieving, watched.
The man at the door kept pacing back and forth, whispering, "I
wish he would get here". Presently a man came striding through
the tall stand of trees, stepping through the door, walking over
to the fireplace, reaching into his pocket, he withdrew a handful
of silver and threw it into the big black kettle of water over
the red hot bed of firewood. A great hiss of steam escaped from
the kettle as if releasing an evil spirit. Immediately Uncle
Allen fell to the floor, set up, looked about and said, "I am at
perfect ease."
Uncle Allen then asked for a picture of his mother. He placed it
on the wall, strode across the room, withdrew the pistol from its
holster on the wall, took aim and fired, striking the picture of
his mother in the temple. It is said that this was not the first
spell, and Uncle Allen vowed that it would be the last. His
mother fell dead at the very minute the bullet struck the
likeness of her.
The pillow of her coffin was stained red!

Unfortunately, I do not know the names of any of Christopher and
Helen's children, so I can't confirm that this is the couple you
are seeking. However, the marriage date you give (1898) seems a
little off for a child of this couple. Might you be seeking the
individual whom the 1870 and 1880 census calls Martha D. Compton,
born ca. 1870? She as the sister of Christopher C. Compton. I
