Patsy ANDERSON is listed in 1850 Laurel Co., KY census as a male, age 17 in home of Ezekiel and Jane ANDERSON. Jane is Ezekiel's 2nd wife. Patsy did not move to Greene Co., IN with family. Who did Patsy marry? Could Patsy have been a female and nickname for Martha? What became of Patsy? Also, what happened to Ezekiel's 1st wife, Lucinda MCFARLAND ANDERSON? Would like contact with anyone researching this family. Judy Hill email@example.com
Also if anyone else if researching the Martin Asher or Sallie Ann Brown lines, I would like to hear from them and possibly exchange some info.

I am looking for a small town that may not exist anymore, named Zedic. My father, Herbert Jefferson Combs was born there in 1901. His father was Robert L. Combs, mother Sarah Duncil. They were originally from Laurel Co. and migrated to Jellico Tenn. around the time of my father's birth, so I believe that Zedic had to be on the route south from Laurel Co.to Jellico. Ky. Place Names does not list it, and the U. of Ky. could not find it either, I am hoping that someone out there may have heard of it or knows someone who has. Will try to look in Whitley Co.first. Thank you, Marilyn Hansen

Welcome MULLINS - Does anyone know who the parents were of Welcome MULLINS born 1803 in Rockcastle, KY. - Married Lucinda MOORE 14 Oct 1832 in Laurel, KY and died in Nov 1, 1879 in Madison, KY. He last appeared in the 1870 Madison, KY Census and then died 9 years later at the age of 76. Tax lists and Census records in these three counties seem to point to either Terry MULLINS b.1770 in NC or Spencer MULLINS b. 1775 in NC as a possible father. Terry MULLINS and Spencer MULLINS were the sons of Henry MULLINS and Mary TERRY. Thankful for any leads

Donald DeZarn, Jr. Sun Aug 24 07:40:05 1997
Over the past several years, I have accumulated bits and pieces of information on the DeZarn family. Thus far, all of my information leads back to KY. My father, Donald DeZarn, Sr., who died in June 1982, once told me that he thought there was a link back though history to French Quebec. I have not been able to confirm or deny that claim. My grandfather (Donald Sr. father), Green DeZarn, hailed from KY and his wife, my grandmother, Daisy Farmer Dezarn, came from Hamilton, OH. I though I would try this newly discovered site to see if I can gain some new insight on the DeZarn family.
