I live in Las Vegas Nevada. I came to Nevada when my daughter Heather Nicol Warren got her Master's Degree & began teaching. I have a son Erik Chandler Warren who is a world traveler. He has a BFA. He is a sculpor. At present he is moving to Australia.
I am a writer. I graduated from Ohio State University.
When growing up I was a model beginning at the age of 12.
I am compiling data on ancestor, to write a book and place copy in Library of Congress, where there are already three on the Banks Family, my grandmother's family.
Find A Grave Memorial# 51664329 You show William Jesse Cornett as the son of John and Mary Jesse. I can't find any documentation on this and would love to know the source. Several people show him as the son of John and Elizabeth Bacon and I think your info is correct but I can't prove it.
Thanks for the work on the Alden Williamson memorial. In reference to Alden's will, Martin County did not become a county until 1870. The only reference to Alden's will that I have found comes from Charles C. Wells' book, "Annals of Floyd County" where he transcribed the County Court Order Books. In his transcription of Court Order Book #2, October Term of Court-28 Oct 1816, "The Last Will and Testement of Aulden Williamson was proved in Court and proved by the oath of Stephen Marcum."
So, perhaps we can correct the bio to say that his will was proven in Floyd County, KY, instead of Martin, so that people can find the records? At this time in history, Floyd County encompassed a number of counties that we know today in eastern KY including Pike, Martin, Lawrence, Johnson, and more....
Sarah Cynthia Hon-Morton I have sent you a couple of messages with no response or corrections forthcoming on Sarah Cynthia Hon-Morton. The information in the bio is incorrect. Her father, Joseph Hon Jr was indeed taken captive by Indians at the attack on Ruddle's Fort, NOT Ruddle's Mill in Cynthiana, Kentucky in June 1780, NOT 1781. However, he was NOT taken by Seminole Indians. This incident has been very well researched and carefully documented. The Indian tribes that were involved in this attack are as follows: Shawnee, Ottowas, Hurons, Mingoes, Chippewas, Delawares, and Taways. SEMINOLE Indians were NOT involved in this attack. Seminole Indians lived in FLORIDA and had nothing whatsoever to do with this attack. Joseph Jr's sister, Katherine was NOT held in captivity for 18 years as you have stated. This misinformation is very frustrating to me personally, not to mention grossly incorrect and misleading to serious researchers of the Hon family. Please either correct this information or you may feel free to transfer her memorial to me and I would be more than happy to make all of the corrections, along with attaching her to her family members, as I have requested you to do on more than one occasion. I do hope that the book that you plan on writing and submitting is better researched and documented than the information contained in this one single memorial page.

Wrong Cemetery & Death Date on Cassandra Banks Hi Lee, I'd like to point out that Cassandra Banks never left Owsley/Clay Counties of Kentucky and was still very much alive at the time of the 1880 Owsley County Census. She was living with her son in Island Creek, Owsley County, at age 73 during the 1880 census. It was generally believed that she died around 1884. But I do know that she did not move to Creek County, Oklahoma in 1907 when the family moved en mass. Could you share with me what your source is for the fathers of Cassandra's or Jennie's children. We have heard many rumors but have not found any documentation to support any names. Also, do you know of any males with a Banks surname, who might consider taking a Y/DNA test. They must be descendants of Cassandra or Jennie. brbanks AT yahoo.com (barney)
Jane Jeannie Banks Do you have any history on Jeanie Banks? Who are her Father and Mother? Was she Native American? My line is through her son Solomon Banks which I would like some history on him. Thank you, Susan

Sarah Cynthia "Sallie" Hon-Morton Some of the information that you have put on Sallie's memorial page are not correct. I do not know where you came by this information concerning Sallie's father, Joseph Hon Jr, but there is ZERO documentation to back this up.
Joseph Hon Jr, his mother, Mary Knodler-Hon, & his "3" sisters were taken captive following the attack on Ruddles Fort in June 1780. The attack was carried out by British Canadian soldiers & nearly 800 Indians of different tribes. However, SEMINOLE Indians were NOT one of those tribes.
There are people using the information that you have put on this memorial as fact. I find that very disturbing.
There is plenty of documentation concerning the attack on Ruddles Fort. I can see no reason to not conduct some sort of research before making these claims.
