Posted 03/14/2017 Surname: Duncan

Hello. My name is Kevin Duncan. My ggg-grandfather Micajah Duncan is suppose to have migrated through Carroll County in the early to mid 1800s. His father was Charles F. Duncan. Are there any records of his family? I need to prove Micajah is a son of Charles. Thanks, Kevin kevinwayneduncan@att.net

Posted 04/13/2015 Surname: McEndre

I'm searching for information about the parents of my 3rd Great Grandfather born around 1808.  His name is Robert McEndre.  I've searched using Ancestry.com and seen the family name spelled in a variety of ways through the generations: McEndree/McAndre/McCandree.  Any of these might be used for Robert's name. Robert married Catherine Dunn in Henry Co. in 1831, and fathered George M McEndre (b. 1833), John Ruben McEndre (b. 1835), James D McEndre (b. 1841), and several more children subsequently.  John Ruben, my 2nd Great Grandfather, fathered a son named Robert Layton McEndre (b. 1862). I have found records of a Bunyan McAndre (b. 1765) in the area that I am hopeful may be connected.  Bunyan fathered Reuben McAndre (b. 1780), John McAndre (b. 1784), and several more children subsequently.  Reuben married Elizabeth Sullinger in 1800, and fathered Layton McAndre (b. 1805).  I have not been able to find any records that connect Robert to this family.  But Robert's birth date would fit easily into Reuben's family.  Furthermore, it's very interesting that the names Ruben, John, and Layton appear in the names of my ancestors as well as in the names of the Bunyan McAndre family.
There is a death record in the "Kentucky Death Records, 1852-1953" for a man named Robt McEndre, which is the basis for the death date you cited: 29 May 1856.  I've not seen any other source for his death date.  The death record shows very little about Robt McEndre - nothing about his age, occupation, cause of death, place of birth or residence Place of death is Carroll Co.  But of the few things it recorded about him, it included a name for Parent: "Wm Winan" which creates more questions than it answers... The death date 1856 fits the census records: Robert is listed with his wife and children in the 1850 census, and he is not included with his wife and children in the 1860 census. Any help with this would be very appreciated, thanks, Chris, chrisolga@gmail.com

taken in and lived with Albert Tandy at Whites Run in Carroll County, Ky, however, I have not found record of this. He did finally locate his father and his 1/2 siblings, Charles and Gertrude. I would appreciate

Elizabeth Wright husband died and she probably moved to Ky to be her husband family (lots of Wrights in Carroll and Henry Co).

I am looking for any information regarding Stephen Easton.  According to his obituary, he came to Carrolton, Ky in 1827.  After his father died, he made his home with a Mr. Dugan until 1838 when he departed for
Newcastle, Kentucky. His parents names are not mentioned in the obituary and I honestly do not know how accurate this information is. Any help would be appreciated! Connie Easton Gold, goldc64079@yahoo.com

Posted 06/07/2009 Surnames:  Butler

I am descended from Daniel Norcross Butler, who appears with most of his family in the Carroll Co. 1850 census. I know that Daniel died in or about 1855, and his widow, Elizabeth "Betsy" Francis Butler, then married Jonathan Yates on Jul 10,1856.  Sadly, he too died about 1857.
Daniel and Elizabeth lived on the East side of Four Mile Creek about 4 miles from Carrollton following the Ohio R. road, and then about 2 or 3 miles along Four Mile Creek and on the far side of the creek. I have a map from 1883 showing that this property belonged then to Elizabeth ("Eliz th" on the map) Yates. That is the last date for which I have found any proof of her, except for the date in the family Bible which states that she died Jan 9, 1893 at the home of her daughter, Sally Butler Wade in Buffalo, Pike, Missouri.  No burial has yet been found for her, though much of the family was buried at Buffalo Jordan Cemetery near by.
I would especially like to know where Daniel was buried. Also, I have been unable to track their youngest children, Julia Ann Butler, born in Jan of 1850 and Joel Butler born Aug of 1853. I have been unable to discover if they died in childhood, or if they were raised by other family members. Any help with these questions would be very much appreciated.
Thank you very much, Cerelle Bolon, cerelleallez@gmail.com

Posted 01/25/2009 Surnames: Mylor/Miler

My grandfather, John BEALE Mylor, was born in Carroll, Co. in 1890. His father was James E. Mylor, who was born in Gallatin, Co. around 1855. James married "Frankie" Beale in 1885. They had 3 boys, and 1 baby girl who died shortly after birth. Frankie died in 1897, and James died in 1903. The two youngest sons (one being my grandfather John) were put up for adoption, and ended up here in Lexington. James married a Mattie Stafford after Frankie died, and I'm trying to find out what happened to her, or why she couldn't keep James' 2 boys. I'm also trying to find a lead on who the parents of James were. There are some Mylors in the Warsaw area, but evidently, there is no connection. I think James and Frankie lived around the Eagle Station area. Thank you!! Lucy Eisenbeis, mlbbeisen@yahoo.com
