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)

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: Elmer Patrick photo
Not a problem, we were at the cemetery today anyway. I also deleted the photo from Frances' memorial.

Robert Denney
I looked for a marker for Robert Denney b. 1802 d.1882 at the Ridgley Community Cemetery in Missouri and could not find anything I do have a picture of a marker that is for the Denney children of FM and A. Denney. No date! There are many Denneys in this cemetery but no Robert. Didn't know if this helps at all. I live very close to this cemetery, so if you have others there that you want, let me know. I can send the pic of the "children of" marker if you want.

Thanks, Karen

Death Date for Richard Morton (b. 1794)
Hello Lynn ... Thanks for your recent email to me regarding the death date for Richard Morton (b. 1794). Even though the Hon Book states that he died in 1876, Lynn Morton in his "Morton Story" notes that the death date for Richard is in question and that some have him dying in 1876 while others state 1880, as I have listed on his memorial. Is there any way to check to make sure of the date of his death? I have down 1 March 1880. The page of the Morton Story that gives the discrepancy is on page 6 of that book. What should we do? Perhaps I can simply mention the varying death years in my bio for him? - Pat Iverson

Joseph Hon
I have been reading your information on Joseph Hon via FindaGrave and on I just wanted to make certain that I was correct in what you are saying. Any information pertaining to Joseph P. Hon is not correct for Joseph Hon, Sr. who married Mariah "Mary" Knodler and Joseph Hon was not involved in the military, specifically the Revolutionary war? Do you know if he was a German Baptist or Dunkard? I am married into the family who is related to Joseph Hon and there is so much information out there, that it's hard to know what is true and what isn't. Thanks for the information! Jennifer Smith
