Searching for descendants of Chesley CONANT/CANANT b ca 1790 - was in Laurens Co, SC 1820.  He was in Williamsburg KY (I do not know what county Williamsburg was in at that time) in 1830's. He was in Laurel Co, KY in 1850.  His second wife, Elizabeth COX, was from KY and they were married 1833. Their son, Milton Allen CONANT was born 1833 in Williamsburg KY and his wife Amanda Jane McBEATH was born 1825 in Somerset, KY.  She was the daughter of Haven McBEATH and Mary WITHERS.  Their grandchildren were in CONANT, KY. My husband is descended from Chesley CONANT/CANANT and his third wife, named Elizabeth ______.  They went to Mississippi and their son William CANANT was born in MS and died in Cullman Co, AL.  The CANANT family is quite large in Cullman Co, and my father in law was from there.   If anyone knows of these families or can offer any suggestions I will be very happy to hear from you. We want to know more about Chesley and his ancestors, and hope to find somemore clues.

Michael J. Orton   Sat, 06 Dec 1997
I am looking for any information on a John V. ORTON or ORTEN, who was born in North Carolina in ????, and later migrated to Tennessee/Kentucky, and married an Mary Ann Thomas. No other information was known or passed on from the family on John V. ORTON. I have since found a John V. ORTON in the 1840 census in Carter County, Tennessee, with two males in the household ( 1 20-29, and 1 40-49 ) and four females in the household ( 1 0-5, 1 5-9, 1 10-15, 1 40-49 ). Not much
information has been acquired from that point, until 1867 when in the Laurel County, Kentucky marriage book, it is recorded that Mary A. Thomas married John V. ORTEN on July 14, 1867. In the 1870 census for Laurel County, Kentucky  in the London Voting Precinct, it shows a John L. ORTON from North Carolina, age 75 living in the household of John Cloyd. Also in that census it shows that in the Raccon Voting Precinct/Mershons Cross Roads, a Mary Orton, age 42 with two children
Harriett, age 9 and James, age 3. John ORTON and Mary ORTON had a son named Jesse Green ORTON, supposedly born in Owsley County on March 8, 1871, and later married an Malinda Catherine Overbay in 1893 in Rockcastle County, Kentucky. Jesse died on November 22, 1945 in
Rockcastle County, Kentucky. Any information on John V. ORTON/ORTEN would be appreciated. Thank you.

Looking for families of GRAY, GREGORY, FRASIER, LUNSFORD in and around Laurel County.   My grandfather ELI GRAY was born in CLAY county in 1872, but lived in and around London after a period of time.  His father was JASPER NEWTON GRAY (family name) and mother was HELEN HARRIS.  They married in TN in 1859. He had a sister CLARA who married WM GREGORY. Brothers WILLIAM, MALIN DUNCAN and JASPER.  Sister  FLORENCE.  My grandfather left KY around the mid-1880's due to a problem that family whispers attributed to a feud where a sheriff was killed.  The whispered feud was supposed to be between the PHILPOTTS and the GRAYS but can find no record of it, although ELI is listed on an 1880 census as living with an aunt and uncle, which would explain the rumor that his father died (or was killed) and his mother did not care for the children.  Any help in locating family with the above links, please contact me.  Thank you.

I am currently working on the "Scalf" line of my family tree. The Scalf family has roots in many Kentucky counties. If you have a Scalf link I'd like to hear from you! Also, will share what I have.

Hi, I'm trying to locate information on my great grandfather. His name is James Howell and he was a member of the Kentucky Volunteers - Army of the Potomac (Manasses). He died in 1915 around the age of 87. His wife's first name may have been Julia. He had a daughter named Rebecca that was born in Knox County, Kentucky on April 1, 1867. She married William Miller on September 1, 1881 in Pineville, Kentucky.

Thank you for any help on any of the people.

What a "wonderful" web site this is.
