Adair County Brick Wall Archives
2001 - 2002
I am looking for information on my great grandparents Aaron Ballew and Martha Nichols both born KY. Aaron 1805, Martha 1803 I believe that they were born in Adair Co. I believe that David could be the father of Aaron, the family belongs to the Methodist Church so there could be church records that would tie them together. Any information on this family or where I could write for Church records would be appreciated.
Thank you, Bessie email@example.com
I remember a place my grandmother took out past the lake and it was full of crystal rocks or that's what I thought when I was young. This place was BEAUTIFUL and I know for a fact that I went there with her when I was very very young. I would just like to find the place again. I am doing futher reserch with my family and they may have the answers, I just thought I would try this.
She was Evelyn Rogers before she married.........
My Grandmother Evelyn White was married to Charles White, whose mother is Annie Mae White and they all lived on Maddux Lake Rd. (or that's what it is called now). My grandfather is still alive and still living there. He dosen't remember good, and from the time I was born they have live there. Thanks So Much. Suzanne White Willis firstname.lastname@example.org
I have been
searching for over 15 years for my ggg grandfathers parents and siblings.
My ggg grandfathers name WARFIELD ESTES born Sept 5, 1821 married MARY ANN
MCKINNEY July 23, 1840 and he died Sept 1897 all of this happened in Breeding,
Adair Co., KY. On there marriage bond it reads he is the son of WILLIAM
ESTES but no mothers name is listed anywhere. Nothing on his wifes parents
is listed either but I know who she descends from. I have all of WARFIELD
and MARY ANN MCKINNEY ESTES' childrens names and so forth it is just his parents
and siblings that has been the brick wall for many years. He and MARY ANN
are both buried in the ESTES/MCKINNEY CEMETERY off of Independence Ridge Road in
Breeding, Adair Co., KY and he was the first to be buried there. 2 of his
sons are also buried there along with many other family memebrs (you can see a
listing of this cemtery on this site as well)
I'm looking for the parents of Milam Bennett. I
recently obtained Milam's death certificate where I found the following
information: **birth July 16, 1866 Adair Co., KY**death May 11, 1954
Barren Co., KY**buried May 14, 1954 Adair Co., KY at Morris Chapel
Cemetery**father William Bennett**mother Eliza Bennett**birthplaces for both
parents not included. I have William (age 42 b TN) and Eliza Bennett (age 38 b
KY) listed in the 1870 census of Adair Co with 7 children. In 1870, Milam
would have been around 4 years old yet "Milam" isn't present on this
census. Where is he? I've been informed by a distant relative that
this is indeed the correct family. She has a total of 8 children which
includes Milam. He seems to be the only one missing from the census.
Her information was written in a bible. Other family cousins have Mary
Jane Moss as Milam's mother, not Eliza Bennett as listed on the death
certificate. I was also informed that William Bennett, born ca. 1828
(according to the above census) was adopted and was previously a Hughes. There
you have it. I'm stuck. Milam was married a few times. One wife,
Arena Compton Bennett, was the twin of Lena Compton Wilson. Another wife,
Nettie Jackson, had three of his children: John, Mary, and Altie. Anyone
with a Hughes, Compton or Bennett link in Adair or surrounding counties please
drop me a line. Maybe we could make a connection.
My Brick-wall is my ggg grandmother Sarah Elizabeth Cooley. She was b. May 25, 1827 d. Oct. 14, 1853. Married Fielding White on Sept. 1, 1844. They had two children, William and John. William is my connection. Does anyone know anything about Sarah and her family? Thank you. Pat email@example.com

I believe had a sister named Mahala. Mary Elizabeth died in 1939. There were several Sanders in the Casey Creek area. If anyone knows about the parents of Mary Elizabeth Sanders Giles, please help. Thank you in advance. Teanonna Reynolds email@example.com
Looking for the parents of Campbell Hughart and how they are connected to the Hugharts of Virginia and West Virginia.
My great, great grandfather, Young Alexander HUGHART was born in Adair County, KY in 1845. He moved to Madison Co., Iowa in 1860 with a large group of people including his father, Rev. Campbell HUGHART (United Brethren of Christ) who had strong anti slavery sentiments. Some of the other surnames of families leaving Kentucky with them were : Blair, Breeding, Armstrong, Turk, Carter, and others. Campbell HUGHART was born in Adair County on Dec. 3, 1812. He married Mary Ann BLAIR (b. Dec. 3, 1812) on Dec. 17, 1835. Campbell died in Iowa in 1890 and Mary in 1901. Their children were Sarah Jane; James Milton; John Blair; Young Alexander; Mary Eliza; Melvin Elizabeth; Eliza Almarise (sp?); Belzona (actually daughter of Sarah Jane); William Marion. Any help appreciated... thanks, Cynthia Hughart-Hill firstname.lastname@example.org

His parents Basil Curtis Carter Wheat and Frances Overstreet Wheat to Adair county when William was a young age. William O. married Nancy Kinnaird, daughter of George Kinnaird, on April 16, 1823 in Adair Co., KY. I beliave Nancy had a brother named Charles who also lived there, until 1841. If anyone has any info it would be very helpful. William O. and Nancy are my gg- grandparents. Thanks, Janet Walker email@example.com
WILLIAM DUDLEY, THOMAS DUDLEY, and JOHN DUDLEY of Adair and Green counties.
John is my 3G-grandfather. Thomas witnessed John's marriage bond to Peggy
Sprowles in 1818, but no way of knowing if Thomas is a father, a brother, or
what. William and Thomas show up beginning circa 1800 on census in Green,
pre-formation of Adair. In 1810 William and wife Sarah are in Adair.
John appears in Adair in 1850, but may have been in Green prior to that.
I've been collaborating with several researchers on this line and there is
conflicting information regarding who is John's father...Thomas or William.
Anyone with further information, please email me at
Thanks! Shauna Dudley-Javoroski
Looking for my gg-grandfather, David C. Boon(e) born in Ky. in 1823, but I don't know what County. I have not found any info. on his parents, but am checking out the possibility that a Hiram Cassel? Boone could have been his father. I do know that David did marry a Rhoda C. Smith in Marshall Co., Al. in 1846! Possible the Boons had migrated there also.
Is anyone able to come up with a possible father for David born in 1823 & went to Al.??
Thanks for any info, Rhonda firstname.lastname@example.org
I am looking for the parents of John Wesley Sexton who is my great grandfather. He was born on March 19, 1828 and died September 16, 1850 in Adair County. I believe he had two brothers Pickney J. Sexton and James William Sexton. Thanks, Pat Goodwin email@example.com
Trying to connect Cornelius Mosbey/Mosby to parents & locate siblings.. I think they were possibly Micajah Mosbey 1792-1836 & Nancy Berry, daughter of William Berry. Cornelius was born in Adair Co., Ky. in 1829-30. He is listed as 21 on the 1850 census. His wife is Susannah Lacy, daughter of Henry lacy, & has at that time one daughter, Tabitha J. Now Nancy Mosby married Henry Lacy in 1844. Cornelius married Susannah in 1847. My g-grandfather, Willam Cornelius, was born in Terra Haute, Vigo Co., In., in 1865. I have found where Cornelius was with the 124th Indiana Inf. inlisting in Terra Haute in 1864. Now after that I find nothing until finding Cornelius being a pensioner. At that time he is living in Mo. No town or county. My g-grandfather, William Cornelius & faamily are in Sebastein Co., Arkansas by 1900. This group of Mosby's, Berry's & Lacy's seem to be intertwined for many decades. I just can't seem to confirm the parentage of Cornelius Mosbey. Someone else said he might be the son of one of Micajah Mosbey's brothers. So, if I haven't confused you & I'm sure that I have, that is what I need. I have marriage bond for Micajah Mosbey & Peggy Jesse in 1817 & again with Nancy Berry in 1825. Have the will of Henry Lacy in 1852, witnessed by Cornelius Mosbey & Wade Mosbey. I have the marriage bond for Cornelius Mosbey & Susannah Lacy in 1847 & also for William Mosbey & Nancy Jesse in 1820. Then a marrige bond for William M. Mosbey & Savannah Berry on 1844. One interesting note. On the funeral home records for my g-grandfather William Cornelius, it lists his father as Cornelius Mosby & his mother as MARTHA Lacy, both of Ky. Anyway, if you can figure this mystery out of me on his parentage I would appreciate it very much.
Thanks again, Donna firstname.lastname@example.org

I am researching these families in Adair County. I don't have definitive information on Cabell connections there but some are possible.

He was a property owner in Casey Co from ca 1790, and their joint Casey Co property transactions were record ca 1821. From there their trail is lost. Any information would be appreciated.

The above Brick Wall has been answered. Unfortunately, the email address is no longer good so the answer is posted below. (04/04/2007)
"The woman who married Joe Bryant was actually Mary Etter Cravens (not Mary A. Grider). I have a lot of information about the Cravens family. Joe Bryant's second wife, Mae Bryant was Viola Mae Bryant, d/o John Austin Bryant and Rutha Belle Brockman. The two girls are their children. One of them was my mother, Mary Walker Bryant. They had 2 more girls on 21 Sep 1927, but they died the following February. They are buried in the same cemetery as Mary Etter Cravens Bryant.""
The poster's grandfather Arthur Bryant was actually born 25 Jan 1910. That would calculate to abt. 1909. He married Lola Smith who was born 11 Feb 1911. The woman who married James Morgan Smith was in fact a Grider so that is right." For additional infomation contact Julie56@aol.com

I am seeking information on the ancestry of Uriah Rogers (or Rodgers) and Ellen (or Eleanor) Patrick Rogers/Rodgers married January 13, 1825 in Adair Co., KY. Uriah was in the 1830 census of Barren Co., KY and the 1840 census of Morgan Co., IL. The family later moved to Randolph Co., MO and were there for the 1850 census. They were living in Macon Co., MO when Uriah died abt. 1858. Census records show both Uriah and Ellen were born in VA; Uriah was b. abt. 1804 and Ellen abt. 1803.
Uriah may have had a brother Jesse C. Rogers (or Rodgers) born 1797 Greenbriar Co., VA (now WV) married to Ruth Hurt Dec. 11, 1820 Adair Co., KY. Ruth b. abt. 1802 was the daughter of Nathan and Frances Allen Hurt. Ruth died abt. 1822 KY. Jesse then married Vina McHorgue b. abt. 1810 KY. They moved to Chariton Co., MO and were there in the 1850 census. I have info on the children for both Uriah and Jesse.
Uriah and Jesse appear to be connected. Family group sheets were submitted to the LDS Library in Salt Lake City on these two by the same individual whom I have not been able to contact. Chariton Co., MO where Jesse lived adjoins Macon Co. and Randolph Co., MO where Uriah lived. I suspect they are brothers but have no proof.
Uriah Rogers has been a brick wall for over three decades. I would be most grateful if anyone has info on his parents or siblings and would be happy to share the info I have collected on Uriah's descendants.

My GG grandmother Lavina Coffey was born about 1804
and her parents lived in Russell and Adair Counties. I'm reasonably sure
her father's name was Joel Coffey, and for a brief period they left Kentucky and
went just across the state line to Illinois where Lavina was born. They
later returned to Kentucky and Lavina married Simeon F. Coombs on July 22, 1823
I am searching for the ancestry of a James Collins who married Elizziebeth Savannah Flud/Flood, b. 1892 in Jasper, Newton Co., AR, dau of Mary Jane Smith and John Landern Flud.
James was b. abt. 1880-1890's. They were in AR and then had several children and migrated to CA. I have never been able to trace James Collins parentage and wonder if his family was from Adair Co., KY since you have so many Collins in Adair. Family names are James Elgy, William, Talmage, Charles Emery of his descendants. Any help is greatly appreciated and I love this site! It has so much information.

Looking for information on John Phillip Sanders. Here are some facts: John was born in KY in 1844, he fought in the Civil War and he moved to Indiana after the war. Here are some theories: He joined the 13th KY Cavalry in Columbia, KY--so I am assuming (if this is my John) that he was from Adair Co., KY. I found a John of the right age in Adair Co. 1850 census--parents being a Thomas H. and Sarah Sanders. I am trying to confirm this as my John Phillip Sanders. If it is, I would like to continue my search with Thomas and Sarah. I would also like to correspond with any Sanders in this area who might be able to help me more.
More on John: He married Margaret Melissa Miller in Bartholomew Co., IN in 1871; he and she had the following children: Frank b. 1884, Edgar, Ernest, Cora and Ethel. Cora married a Steambarger and Ethel married Charles Royse 1st and a man named Breeding 2nd.

William BERRY Adair Co. believed to be a vet;
I've been trying to locate my grt. grt. grandparents. Thomas and Rebecca (Goodin) Hale. I know for fact that they lived in ADAIR county for the births of their four daughters in 1841,1849, 1854 and 1857. For some strange reason their son was born in Breckinridge County in 1864.
