I have been looking for quite some time for infomation on Maria H Ewing my direct line 3rd great grandmother. B. 19 sept 1822 in Washington County KY married John Hupp 13 May 1840 in Washington KY and died 29 April 1890 in Monroe County Indiana. I found her obit marriage documents and census info. But no information anywhere that I can find on her mom and dad. My family has no idea and I’ve hit a wall. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for information on Mary Susan Mathis, had twin, Lydia Ann Mathis. Born in Kentucky, in October 1857. They came to Rockastle County, together with Lydias infant son, Charles Wilson. This was about 1875. Where did they come from and who is their family? Mary Susan is my Grandmother.

I am searching for a Family from Pikeville, Ky. last Name Compton or Robinson

I am searching for info on 4x great grandfather Adam Holiday Taylor. He was born 1763 in Westmoreland,Pa married to Margaret Dixon and died in Pendleton KY 1851.


My third great grandmother is Lydia McFalls born Feb. 16, 1844 in Surry County, NC to Sarah Dickenson McFalls & James Williams McFalls. I am trying to research Cherokee Indian roots I have been told I have on this side of my family.
I can find a lot of information on the Dickenson/McFalls families but nothing confirming American Indian ancestory. Does anyone know how to help me find this information?

My Great Grandmother was Edna S Vaughn. She was born in Kentucky on 6 Sep 1882. I BELIEVE she was born in Webster County. I have tried to find out who her parents were but it's very difficult because she only lived till 26 Feb 1906 so the only census she appears in is the 1900 census and by then she was married. If we only had access to 1890 censuses!!! My guess about who her father was is John William Vaughn, Jr because I took a DNA test on ancestry and am showing to be 3rd cousin to some of his descendants. I don't understand why her name doesn't appear in the Kentucky birth records. Is it possible she lived in too remote an area for her birth to be registered? Can anyone help with how I could find out who her parents were? In the 1900 census she is in it states that both of her parents were born in KY.
