Posted 05/14 Surname:Spalding / Leannartz (various spellings)
My great great great grandfather was J B (possibly Joseph Benedict) Spalding – a shoemaker who lived in Marion county per the 1850, 1860 and 1870 census and was born about 1828 in Marion County. He married Isabelle Lennartz or something close to that. Various birth and death records suggest the name could have been Bell Lenento, Eisbelle Lennsartz, Lena Artz, etc. They both show up in the 1850 and 1860 census, in the latter with children Thomas, David, Laura, Martin and Joseph. Isabell is not in the 1880 census and may have died during or shortly after the birth of her last child. Am trying to find out more about Isabella Lennartz. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Looking for Robinsons 1850-1890's. John Nelson Robinson married Elizabeth Moore. John Nelson Robinson drown while moving slaves down river on a barge. Mose Barlow drown at same time. Elizabeth Moore remarried a man named Farmer. Don't have any more information, must be cousins, or other relatives of the Robinson line. Lived in Garrard County, Crab Orchard area or other nearby areas. Don't know who parents of Elizabeth Moore were?

I am looking for information on Mollie Enyard, born about 1893. I believe this Mollie Enyard was adopted by James "Clay" Brown and his wife, Annie Belden Brown. They had no children of their own. From 1900 to 1930, Mollie is with Clay and Annie Brown, lastly under Brown and not Enyard and was listed as their adopted daughter. Clay and Annie Brown are both buried at Brush Creek Cemetery and there is a Mollie B. Copley buried there with a single stone that has the dates of born 9 May 1893 and died 1 March 1960. I am hoping this is Mollie B. Enyard. I think she waited until after the death of both Browns before she married. I don't think she had any children of her own either, but someone had to have put the stone up for her unless she arranged it before she died. I need some help!!! Thanks for your time, Brenda Richardson Waters of Louisville, Ky.
