I have an ancestor named John Lair Morgan born 1864 to James Jackson and Louisa "Lucy"
Vaughn-Morgan. Since Lair is so unusual I thought it could perhaps be the last name of a
grandparent. This family is white. Do you have any connections to these names?


Lucy Parker Denham Vaughn

I am very confused. I found my ancestor James Jackson Morgan married "Vaughn, Louisa
Parker Denham". Does this mean she was a Parker who married Denham then Vaughn before
Morgan or was she a Vaughn? I found a Parker Denham in Pulaski, could this be her father
or deceased husband? Please help.

In Response To: Lucy Parker Denham Vaughn (Leta Counts-Woolard)

Hi Leta,

There must be a misunderstanding. The bond for their marriage shows James Morgan marrying
Louisa Vaughn. Their surety was Parker Denham. It looks like the source of your
information may have run the names together as if they were one name. If you look at the
transcribed 1852-59 birth records, you will find Louisa as a mother, with her maiden name
listed as Vaughn.

KY) and then he married Elizabeth Trimble (someone thought he had had an affair with
Delia...marriage certificate and did she then die? and he married the sis?) The David
Franklin Trimble seems to make "name sense" since Elizabeth Trimble and Henry Lay named

David F. Trimble and Nancy Tarter had a daughter named Celia, which may be the cause of
the confusion. The explanation I have been given for Henry Lay's two marriages is this:

"Delia and Elizabeth were both in love with Henry Lay. Delia was apparently in poor
health, so Henry married her and lived with her until her death, while having an affair
with Elizabeth. They had two children before they were married after Delia's death." John

Casey Co. They migrated to Casey from NC in 1864. I myself was born and raised in Pulaski
Co. Now, I am trying to get some of the more recent gaps filled in as I have traced back
my direct line some 10 generation. I have two great,great uncles who came to Pulaski at
the turn of the century to Pulaski from Casey. One was Julius Warren, b.May 1864 d.??. He
married Sarilda Emmaline (Nichols) She died 6 Jul 1949 and is buried in Ringold cemetery.

They has at least 4 children, George Warren, 1896-1985, Ora M.,1892-1914(buried in
Ringold cem), James and Elmer. I do not know when Julius died. I would like to hear from
any descendants of him. The other gg-uncle was Robert G. Warren, b.Sep 1870d.23 Jul 1925,
buried in Ringold Cem. he was married to Sally (Bailey). They had at least these kids,
William T., John, Hattie, Amanda and Augustus.

If you are descended from these folks or might know someone who is please show them this

made 4 Aug 1723 prob: 21 July 1725, show a Dan EELBANK as a Wit: to the will of Nicholas

With the spelling the way it was then, anything is possible.

My wife Betty and I live in Pulaski Co. Her mother was a Dodson, the daughter of George
Walter Dodson, who was the son of David Dodson. I don;t know if they migrated from
Virginia or not but I;m pretty sure they came into Kentucky from Tennessee. I believe, no
proof, that David was the son of John Dodson, and John was the son of Lazarus Dodson.
Does this fit into your line?

My husband's great-grandmother was Arnetha Cowan Dodson Taylor. She was born 23 Jul.
1861 in Wayne Co., KY and died 02 Apr. 1915 also in Wayne Co. Her parents were James
Rogers Dodson (b. 23 Feb. 1816, d. 28 Dec. 1899) and Manerva Grace Tuttle (b. 8 Sept.
1820, d. 8 Apr. 1907). This is as far as we have back on Dodsons, perhaps it will be
useful to you.

At one time, the location where Ferguson is now was Luretha and the town of Ferguson was
in another location in KY. From what I understand, when the original Ferguson died out,
Luretha took the name of Ferguson - which was what they had wanted to call it to begin
with but it was being used.
