I am looking for information on Robert and Margaret Cox Cheek/Chick. Both were born in TN, possibly Claiborne County, around 1830. They married on 22 Sep 1849 in Claiborne County, and they moved to Laurel County between 1870 and 1873. The last Census record I have of Robert's family is Laurel County in 1880. Their children include Emaline, Matilda, George, Floyd, Henley, Andrew, Elizabeth, and Robert.

I know that some of his children moved to Clay County. They may have lived very close to the Clay/Laurel border. I found a listing for a Robert Chick in the special census of 1890. He was listed as a Confederate soldier, residing in Pigeon Roost, Clay County. Since his son Andrew lived in Pigeon Roost, I am pretty sure this is him. Does anyone know more?

I am trying to find out where and when Robert and Margaret died. I am also trying to find out if Robert was the son of James Chick, Jr. of Claiborne County, TN and Knox County, KY.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My Mother and father were born in Laurel County. My mother Pearl Hopkins in 1910 and father Bartley Lawson in 1908. They came to Hamilton, OH in 1931 where they lived until they passed away. I am a 42 year old just starting to search my family tree. I am related to the Lawsons and Hopkins and Sweets in and around Laurel County. I have relatives still there.

I had traced the Hopkins name until around 1800 in and around Laurel County. My grandmothers are Pheba Idell and Julia Sweet from Laurel County. Most of my roots are in Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia. I know nothing of the Lawson side except my great-grandfather fought in the silver war. His son (my grandfather) was Elisha Lawson who died sometime in the early 1950's in Hamilton, OH.

Vivian Love Holland Mon Apr 14 17:32:25 1997
Hello, to all. I am looking for any info on a LOVE family that resided in the city of Pittsburg, Laurel Co Ky. I believe they had been in the vicinity since the late 1800's. Birth year for Robert James LOVE 1858. I have nothing to speak of on my ggrandfather, Robert James LOVE, who married Mary SINGER. They had 8 children: George, Elmer, Tom, Brian, Emery, Grace, Icy and Sue. Most of these children migrated north to Butler Co., Ohio. Robert James LOVE may have originally come from the Swain Co., N.C. area. I have been told that they are buried in a cemetery on Sufferage Slate Lick Road. Does that sound familiar to anyone? I'd really like to find out when Robert showed up in Ky . Possibly the names of both sets of their parents. I don't want much do I??? LOL :) Any info would be most appreciated. Thank you in advance...

Hi. I am going to throw a wide net here. I am looking for any and all BARNETTS in the Laurel Co. area after 1870. I am particularly looking for Mary MARTIN BARNETT who may have moved from Pulaski Co., KY after 1870 to Laurel Co. She would have been around 70 years old in 1870, so I suspect any move was made with grandchildren. Please write if you might be able to help....I will share anything I have!

Was Carter Mason (1790-1835)married twice? Elizabeth W. Moore (1797- 1879) is listed on pension records as his wife, but family lore calls her "Angeline." Their children were Thomas W., Charles W., Samuel Sydney, William Christopher, and James Ashberry MASON. Arrived in Laurel Co, KY, about 1830 from Hawkins Co, TN. William C. and Samuel Sydney both came to Sonoma Co, CA, raised families and are buried in Healdsburg. I'd also like to know Carter's and Elizabeth's (&/or Angeline's) parents.
