Does anyone have access to a history of Caldwell County, Kentucky covering the early pioneers of the county?
I am still searching for any information on Samuel JONES who came to Caldwell County from North Carolina and married his first wife in Caldwell Co. in 1809 (Rachel SMITH CANNON).  He married his second wife Tericy CAMPBELL in 1822 also in Caldwell and died between July and November 1850 place unknown but estate probated in Caldwell County in November 1850.  He appears on the 1850 census with wife Tericy and his children.  I know nothing of Tericy CAMPBELL other than she was born ca 1809 in Caldwell County and died before March 1870 place unknown but her estate was also probated in 1870 in Caldwell County.

Right now if I could find where in North Carolina Samuel JONES came from and anything about his parents, and his life in Caldwell County, as well as anything on Tericy CAMPBELL JONES, I would be very grateful.
Children of Samuel and Tericy are: (in case it is helpful)
George W., Hiram B., Orleana, Napoleon B., Mahala A., Nancy Ellen, Mildred M., Rachel Melvinah.

Thank you,

Looking for the death of Samuel JONES who died in 1850 in Caldwell County, Kentucky.  Born 1787-1794 North Carolina, unknown parents.  Married Terisse (various spellings) CAMPBELL in 1822 in Caldwell Co. KY. 

Have tried the Mortality Schedules for 1850 without success.  Samuel appears with wife and family in the 1850 census but nothing after that.

Any help appreciated.

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / John William(s) BRIDGES - Islington
« on: Sunday 04 June 17 20:52 BST (UK)  »
Ancestry has the following baptism of Frederick BRIDGES:
London England Births and Baptisms 1813-1906
St. Mary Islington, Middlesex:
Frederick Bridges son of John Williams and Mary Bridges, bapt 16 June 1815, born 19 May 1815.  Father's occupation weaver, residence workhouse.

It is possible this is my 3ggfather (Frederick) who married in 1838 in Tenterden, Kent and almost immediately he and his wife migrated to Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. 

My dilemma is his father = John William(s) BRIDGES - I can find nothing further of him after or before the above entry.  He does not appear in any census record, nor does he appear to have died in the London area.  It is possible he was of the Church of Scotland, but non-comformist registers do not show him either as having died, remarried or baptised other children.

John's wife is supposed to be Mary GOW.  Frederick gives his father's name as John, James and Frederic, so no help there.  He is consistent with mother Mary GOW. 

Any help or direction very much appreciated.

US Lookup Requests / John Logan EVANS - Howell County, Missouri
« on: Sunday 04 June 17 20:41 BST (UK)  »
Trying to find the death of John Logan or John L. EVANS between 1900 and 1909 in Howell County, Missouri.  He lived in the township of Myatt and possibly Lanton as well.  He appears in the 1880 and 1900 Federal census in Myatt with his wife Hannah and some of their children.  Hannah remarries in 1909 in Howell County as Mrs. Hannah E. Evans. 

Searched all online records I can find including Findagrave, Billiongraves, Missouri deaths on Ancestry, FindMyPast and FamilySearch, Howell County USGenWeb, etc. 

Any assistance appreciated.


United States of America / Hannah E. EZELL - Wagoner County, Oklahoma
« on: Tuesday 23 May 17 23:12 BST (UK)  »
Looking for the death of Hannah Ella EZELL (Nee ARTHUR and EVANS) .  Last known place of residence was Shahan, Wagoner Co. Oklahoma in 1920. 
Findagrave shows Thomas buried in the Shahan Cemetery in 1938, but nothing at all comes up in any records for Hannah (aka Ella or Ellen).  Other members of the EVANS family are also buried in Shahan.
Hannah Ella ARTHUR was born about 1846 in Pulaski, Kentucky and we have her information from marriage to John Logan EVANS to his supposed death in Howell Co. Missouri between 1900 and 1909, then her marriage to Thomas EZELL in 1909 in Howell Co. Missiouri and next appearing on the 1910 census of South Fork, Howell Co. Missouri with new husband Thomas and two of her children to John L. EVANS.  Then she appears as Ella or Ellen EZELL with Thomas in the 1920 Shahan, Wagoner Co. Oklahoma census.  Cannot locate either one in 1930. 

Would appreciate any assistance in locating Hannah's death.  Would newspapers of the day have recorded her death?  Thanks in advance.
