My great-grandfather, William Harrison DEARING, was born 10 Jan 1827 and according to some census returns his birthplace was KY. I believe it very likely it was in Wayne Co. based on the following:

I believe it is quite likely Aaron and Polly were also the parents of my William Harrison, although I have no proof, and it might be he is a cousin of Louisa.

However, Willaim Harrison DEARING, my ancestor, married Isabelle STARMER20 Jan 1852. Note the similarity of the names of their children and those of Louisa:

  1. Vianer Clementine
  2. Aaron (their first born son)
  3. George Francis
  4. Adam Spenceer
  5. Mary Ann (Sarah)
  6. Jacob Teener
  7. James Virgil
  8. Eliza Hester (my grandmother)
  9. Willa Isabelle
In the 1880 Buchanan Co., MO census, both William Harrison KOGER and William Harrison DEARING are found as close neighbors. In addition, after Isabelle's death, my grandmother and Willa Isabelle were reared by their aunt, Hester (Hettie) Jane STARMER, who was married to John KOGER, Jr.

I will be grateful for any help and will gladly reciprocate with any information I might have that would be useful.

Don Watson Sun Dec 15 01:54:58 1996

I am seeking any information on the family and/or decendants of Elisha and Alice "GLASCOCK" THOMAS.

I have a lot of family connections on this line and would like to exchange any information on any of this family. Also am trying to prove Elisha's parent's immigrating from Wales and briefly settling in Chester Co. PA, before moving to Fauquire/Loudoun/Warren County area of Virginia.

Another interesting note: It appears that there may have been a gentleman "impersonating" Elisha that lived in Mercer Co., KY. He died shortly before my Elisha and is buried in a Shaker Cemetary there. It seems he may have been claiming to be Elisha to secure his Rev. War Pension. Some Pension papers of my Elisha indicate some confusion over his Pension suddenly being halted. Eventually, after his death, Alice was able to secure her Pension. This is all conjecture based on the information I have and the "professional" possibilities suggested by more highly skilled researchers. It is an interesting "mystery"...

Need help with a dead end.

James ARTHUR of Wayne Co., KY married Elizabeth TOLER (spelled various ways) of Boyde Co. Ky. in Fleming Co., KY in 1870. They had six children in Fleming Co., KY.

They bought land in 1902 in Lewis Co., KY. Even though I have marriage records for them and their children in Fleming & Lewis Co's. I can find no record, census or otherwise before 1902.

Their son Robert E. ARTHUR was my grandfather. He married Jane LEMIRICK than Rose E. WHEAT. They had Carl ARTHUR, Thomas ARTHUR, Oral ARTHUR and Omer ARTHUR.

I have seen another ARTHUR family from Wayne Co. Ky. Can not find the source for these names. I believe their might be a connection.
