BREWER, FOSTER, LANHAM posted by Teresa Loftin on Saturday, January 2, 1999

BREWER,FOSTER,LANHAM I am trying to find more information on Joseph Wesley BREWER and Emaline Elizabeth LANHAM who were married in 1843. Their son James Albert BREWER was my g-grandfather.

Any information would be appreciated.

GAINES, POINDEXTER posted by Donna on Saturday, January 9, 1999

My great grandmother, Mattie Belle GAINES, filled out a family tree in my baby book. In it she stated that she was the granddaughter of Bernard GAINES and Martha POINDEXTER. I was taken to the graves in Henry Co., KY, "to visit the ancestors", as a child. I have no doubts that this is my line. But, as Thomas F. GAINES was not mentioned in his father Bernard 's will, I need proof. "Barney gave him his settlement early, so that Tom & Martha could get married. " Now, I need more than this oral confirmation that Thomas was Bernard's son. Since Bernard was born in that portion of Fayette County that became Jessamine County two years after his birth, I hope to find some old family records of relatives in Fayette County.

Need leads on Vitals (birth & death, full names) of John W. and Sarah E. PENN, parents of Rebecca (b July 3, 1846 d September 23, 1923) of Turners Station, Henry County. The State of Kentucky states that they do not have records for that period of time (birth). Also, is there a chance that they have Native American ancestry?
