BAILEY, CARAMAN, CARMAN, DANIEL, MEDLIN, WOOD posted by Taleah Wilkinson on Saturday, April 3, 1999

April 3, 1999 Saturday I am searching for information on my Great Great Grandmothers family her mother was Lucinda CARMAN she was born in 1820, and have reason to believe that she was born or lived in Henry Co. Kentucky. Her father was Joshua CARMAN born in either 1784/1790,(two different sources have showed this both as his birth date), he married a Susannah,(maybe a Susannah BAILEY on Sept.5, 1809). What I do have in the records of where Joshua CARMAN settled at with some of his children was what is now Dade County, Mo., this is where I live, and appears to be where he died. I don't have any dates as to when and where Joshua and Susannah are buried, but have reason to believe that they are buried in unmarked graves in a small cemetery on private property that belonged to his daughter Lucinda CARAMAN MEDLIN; it was until about 20 years ago that the last family member sold this land, unitl then it had been owned by someone in the family. I know that Joshua's daughter Lucinda CARMAN MEDLIN, and her husband are buried there, they was the owners of the land during the time period that Joshua and Susannah would have died, it was later sold to their daughter, and continued to be owned for many years by the family. Dade County and Her People, History of Dade County shows Joshua CARMAN as being one of first land owners recorded in 1840. Dade County Families Before 1880, has the following on Joshua CARMAN and his family - Joshua b. 1790, Ky.; d. 1876 Dade Co.; m. Susannah b.1791 Children: Elmina Eleanor b. 1811, Ky.;m. John Harris; Lucinda b. abt. 1820; m. Allen Medlin Ky.; Joshua T. m Maricebly Jane Rodgers; James H. m. Vina Talbuttt; also listed is who I believe a granddaughter Lucinda Clara CARMAN b. June 11, 1855 Dade Co., d. June 8, 1934 d/o of CARMAN and Millie R. McBRIDE. Lucinda Clara was raised by a step-father who would have been a brother-in-law of Lucinda CARMAN MEDLIN's daughter Eliza MEDLIN DANIEL, who was my Great Great Grandmother. I was sent some information from Daniel CARMAN who believes that my Joshua CARMAN is a descendant of Joseph and Mary CARMAN who would have been a line that came to Kentucky from NJ. After reading some family history on the CARMAN family I believe this is very likely correct. It showed a connection to a Caleb and Elizabeth WOOD CARMAN, whose family was in Henry Co., Ky. I was told their isn't a lot of information on this line, and I would appreciate any that I can get to help fit this family line together.

HAWKINS, PERKINS posted by V. Marsh on Thursday, April 15, 1999

RANDOLPH posted by Jodi Johnston on Wednesday, April 21, 1999

I am looking for information on someone who lived in Eminence, KY between 1921-1933. Here's what I here: Certified Copy of Nathan Albert RANDOLPH. Nathan b. April 6, 1888 in Pope County, Illinois, d. July 10, 1933 in Eminence, Pleasureville Pct, KY. His address at the time of his death was RR#2, Eminence, KY. He's buried in Pleasureville, KY Cemetery. I am looking for the name of his wife and possibly children. It has been said he married a nurse who owned a tobacco plantation and had one daughter with her. I am also looking for his will. I know he left one, because he left land to his two sons (Robert and Edward) in Illinois. The marshall came to their house and told them that their father left some land to them and that the state wanted to buy it. Their mother (Nathan's 1st wife) hired an attorney to look into it, but he said there was nothing to it and nothing was ever done about it since. Can you help or guide me in the right direction? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Robert is my grandfather and he didn't hardly know his father, Nathan. I think he really wants to find out who he remarried, does he have any half-sisters/brothers, and was there a will?
