Bio and Links
Bio Photo My 6th Great Grandparents, Joseph & Mary Hon, along with their 4 children: Catherine, Mary, Margot & Joseph Jr, my 5th Great-Grandfather were living in Ruddles Fort, Cynthiana, Kentucky in 1780 when it was surrounded & attacked by British Canadian soldiers & 700-800 Indians of different tribes. Joseph Sr was away from the fort during the time of the attack. Mary was held captive by Shawnee Chief Blue Jacket for over 6 years. Joseph Jr was held by an unknown tribe for 6 - 12 yrs. He found his way back to the family and lived out his life living close by his parents, in Powell County, Kentucky. Catherine married and lived out her life in Ontario, Canada. All that is known of Mary & Margot is their married names as they were all listed in Joseph Sr's last will.

(Davy Crockett is my 5th great uncle)

NOTE: Feel free to use any photos that I have added on this website for your genealogy purposes. I would only ask that you state that you obtained them from me. I have created many memorial pages for people that are in my area, yet not related to me. I will gladly transfer those memorials to their relatives. Just contact me.

RE: James McGahey tombstone
Thanks for the info - and quick response! Can you add the additional photo? I'm not 100% sure this is my family but I'm trying to gather everything I can. Really appreciate all you are doing for Findagrave. And, again, for the readable photo! - Jean

James McGahey tombstone
I see (from picture posted on Memorial) that the tombstone of David McGahey, James' brother, is broken. It looks as it this may be the one next to James's stone from what I can see from your picture. A picture wouldn't be necessary but I would like to know if that is the situation. Pls don't make a special trip. Regards, Jean Taylor, Houston, TX

James McGahey tombstone
Thank you so much for the picture of James McGahey's tombstone in Round Hill Cemetery! I can read it clearly and that is what I needed. There seems to be a broken stone next to it on the same base. If you are ever back in that cemetery, would you take a picture of that stone also? I'm hoping there is enough to read. I am just learning about this family so this would be a great help. And also to know if there are any other McGahey's next to James other than the broken one. Many thanks again for your time in fulfilling my photo request!! Jean Taylor, Houston, TX

Joseph Falcon at Round Hill
Thank you for letting me know. I don't really have any other recourse except to leave the memorial as is and make a note to the effect that he appears in both the Tennessee Death Index and the Tennessee Death and Burial Index as being buried at Round Hill. I also noted that he is not in the burial book for the cemetery, nor that a volunteer wishing to take a picture of the stone could not find one. (Something is grammatically wrong with that last sentence . .) Thank you for attempting to find him. He would not have been brought back to Louisiana for burial. He had lived too long in Tennessee. I did find his wife's burial place back in Louisiana. That is his son and his wife stone that are buried there. But, I took the request off; if he had a stone, you would have found it. Judy

RE: Quitman and Ruth Brandon
I'm sorry but I did the best I could for your photos. The one shot through the fence was meant to show the closeness of the marker to the fence. The others are inside the fence but with the sun casting a shadow on the marker and with only a foot and 1/2 to work, it was impossible to get a better shot. Maybe if someone else can take the shot in the morning rather than afternoon. I always try to post a photo as if it were my own family member but I did all I could do.

This is where I came up with eveything

Name came from:
http://www.geni.com/people/John-Russell/6000000024062235890


Listed as John A. in 1850 & 1860

1850 DeKalb Co, AL
John Russel 30 GA
Permelia Russel 27 SC
Mary E Russel 9
Margarette C Russel 6
Linnia R Russel 2
John A Russel 1
Elizabeth Lamar 49


1860 Pontotoc Co, MS
Jno M Russell 39 SC

Margaret C Russell 15
Lilly R Russell 13
John A Russell 10

Pontotoco Cem book has :

J. G. Russell 1849 - 1906
listed same cemetery as John and Permelia

There is a John A. listed in the cemetery but his birth year is 1843 which pretty much rules him out as same John according to census, and lists his Father's Birthplace South Carolina, Mother's Birthplace Tennessee in 1880 census
