Notes for MARY JANE LOCKHART:
Have notes from Billy Rae Carr's ancestery site stating that Mary was born in Virginia. Have tried e-mailing him more than a year now without success.

Mary was first married to a man named Dirk Whitehead. She and Dirk had two children, Dicey and James A. Lockhart. Given that their children went by Lockhart, she and Dirk most likely never married as no record has been found. (My notes)

Polly Lockhart is buried in the Blankenship Cemetery at Frank Bottom on Camp Creek, Orville Blankenship took me there one time it is all grown over with rocks and brush you can hardly get to it, but on her tombstone is written, lived 93 years 3 months and 21 days, it says she is the daughter of Bird and Nancy McEntosh Lockard . (People usually spelled names as they sounded). I also have the date of Byrd and Nancy's marriage it was March 17, 1803; in Tazewell Virginia. I may have gotton that information at the court house in the marriage license dept. I traveled all over that country for years every summer when I was writting the Hurley Book. I was at the Logan County Court House , Mingo County, the Pike County Court House, Grundy and Tazewell VA, digging through records. They seem to have lost a lot of the records at Pikeville since they built the New Court House. Source: Charles Hurley descendant of Mary and Presley.

Her son, Jim Lockhart (Blankenship) married Betty Ann Justice. (This was a second marriage for both I think). These two had several children. Among these was my great grandmother, Sarah Lockhart (Sally as we knew her to be). She died in childbirth and her son, (my grandfather) was raised by her sister -- who, by the way, also married into the Blankenship family. His name was Charlie Lee and he was raised by Sarah's sister, Julia Lockhart Blankenship and her husband, Monteville Blankenship. The daughters of Julia and Mont always thought that Charlie was indeed, their brother, and not their cousin, as he was raised from an infant with them. Source: Geneva Burton neneburton@hotmail.com

Notes for PAULINA BLANKENSHIP:
Illegitimate relationship with Daniel Coleman------3 children.

Information about Paulina's children, Loranza Dow, Johnny Prater, Virginia (Jenny), Lydia Angeline, Hayes, and Daniel Boone Jr. came from Lillian Elgin, Ennis Blankenship Layne, Peggy Ellen Blankenship Jessie and Dana Altizer Basinger. Info on son's Jason and Lee was provided by Kathy Hill. All descendants of Paulina.

She was a servant of Daniel Boone and his wife Laura Miriam.

Several people who knew Paulina have said that she was hateful and cold hearted.

1850-1860 Pike Co. Ky., Census lists Paulina age 8.

Granddaughter Lillian Anges Coleman once asked her if her name should have an e at the end but she said no its spelled with an a (therefore making her name Paulina and not Pauline like some of us thought)

It is believed that Paulina had a son named Conley, and when he got killed at a young age all she had to say was "well he was a bigger liar that ever lived." But that could have been her brother Conley.
My mother, Peggy Ellen Blankenship Jessie, told me when she was younger and Paulina was still living, she called her grandma and Paulina got a broom and chased her with it and told to to never call her that again.

Paulina said of her mother, " she was a little flat-headed dutch".



Notes for BENJAMIN PRATER:
Census records has Ben and Paulina divorced by 1880 and he was living with his mother Letty Prater

Notes for DANIEL BOONE COLEMAN:
Daniel Boone Coleman was married to Mariam Smith while having affairs with Pauline (Pliney) Blankenship. He and Pliney produced 3 children, but his wife raised all three of them.
The children were: Hayes, Daniel Boone, and Lydia Angeline.
It was said that Pliney took those 3 children and left them standing in the road in front of Daniel and Mariam's house and told Daniel to take care them..This happened before 1880.
Pauline is my (Pamela Marlene Jessie Estep) g-grandmother.

1880, Lydia Angeline was living with Daniel and Mariam.

Anne Vanover has Daniels birthdate (July 31, 1834) I have 1837 from (1900 Census)

Notes from Carrol Hurley Ullrich:
My (Carrol) information regarding GGGrandpa, Daniel Boone Coleman, in a personal interview, June 23, 1999 with Hubert Scarberry, Hubert said that Daniel owned all the land on Paw Paw, Pike Co., KY from his house all the way up in Grassy.
Daniel Boone gave all of his children land to live on, so Uncle Jim Hurley and his wife Jane (dau of Daniel Boone and Miriam) lived in the house where the big rock is.

Carrol Hurley Ullrich has birthdate July 31, 1834 for Daniel..

In 1880, L.A. Blankenship was living with them (Lydia)? Lena was living with her grandparents Curtis and Matilda . Daniel, age 21, was also living with them. (Mariam and Daniel).
The 1900 Census says Daniel B. and Mariam had 8 children; 5 living.

Notes for DANIEL BOONE HURLEY:
Daniel B. was an illeg. son of Demaris and Nehemiah Hurley, husband of Lena Coleman.My father-in-law had an uncle, Daniel Boone (Coleman) Hurley. He was the illegitimate son of Demaris Blankenship (daughter of Bird Blankenship) and Nehemiah Hurley. An Oliver Blankenship who mistook him for another Coleman he’d had a fight with earlier in the day killed Daniel.

Do you know who this Oliver Blankenship might have been? I can’t find anything in the family notes. I was first told Wesley Blankenship killed him so I don’t think my father-in-law knew. He has since passed away and I’m trying to piece together the story and verify it.

My son has Daniel’s knife with his blood on it and I’ve been able to find a picture of him. Alex Coleman (my father-in-law) was the grandson of Demaris and Mahlon Coleman. His family left Pike County when he was approximately 7 and he didn’t have many memories of that side of his family. He did know that Demaris had several illegitimate children (he only knew of her being married once, to Hiram Mahlon Coleman. He had been told she had approximately 20 children. If you have any information on her, the children, Oliver Blankenship, or know whom I should contact, please let me know.

Notes for FREMONT M. HURLEY:
Services for Fremont Hurley of Stopover KY will be held at 11 am Sunday, Jan. 7, 1971. at the Sheppard Memorial Presbyterian Church of Stopover with the Rev. DeWitt Furrow officiating.
Internment will follow at the family cemetery there with the Phelps Funeral Home in charge of arrangements. The body is at the funeral home.

Hurley, a member of a pioneer family that settled at upper Knox Creek in 1830 after moving from North Carolina, died at 7:30 PM Thursday at a Narrows, Va nursing home. Hurley, Va. Is named for his family which were among its first settlers.

He was the husband of the former Miss Mary F. Blankenship who preceded him in death more than 21 years ago. Survivors include 3 daughters, Mrs. G. D. Hampton of West Williamson, Mrs. J. A. Mutter of Tazewell, Va and Mrs. Sadie Morrison of Columbus, Ohio; a sister, Mrs. Louise Blankenship of Argo, Ky; seven grandchildren; 17 great grandchildren and a great great grandchild.

Marlene Bailey quotes:
He was, as I have mentioned in other places, an intersting person-- or, character would be more like it. He was a frequent visitor in our home. I will post the poem he wrote about men going to moon, which he did not agree with.

A CHAT WITH THE MOON
by Fremont Hurley, age 84
Stopover, Ky (1959)

Advice to the Moon:
Old moon, old moon, be caeful as you go through,
There’s a bunch of fools here shooting at you!

Moon’s Answer:
Old friend, old friend, don’t lose your head
I’ll be doing my duty when the fools are dead.
God made me bright and set me on high
And those fools can’t touch me however they try.
God made me to give light and rule the land
And never to be harmed by foolish man.
Since man was created he’s been trying to rule
But he’s always proved to be a self-made fool.
He tried to go to heaven on a tower by his own rule,
But God confounded his speech and left a bunch of fools.
God did his work with a great command,
No worry of the mind, not a bruise of the hand.
Man did his work with an alarming sound,
Then looked back and it can’t be found.
So it is today, man thinks he is wise,
But he must change his ways
If he ever sees beyond the skies.

HISTORY OF BUCHANAN COUNTY
By H. Claude Pobst

The American Heritage Map of the location of the homes of Indians show no tribe permanently occupying Western Virginia. The Shawnees were in Ohio, the Cherokees in Western North Carolina, and East Tennessee, and the Xuala in South Western Virginia. They were probably run out by the Cherokees about 1525-50.

I find in Summer's "History of Southwest Virginia" most excellent account and explanation of the Indians of the entire section. It is his belief that the earliest Indians occupying any part of this section were the Xuala. Mr. Summers definitely believed that De Sota visited the upper reaches of the Holston River, perhaps into Washington County, in 1540. A tradition exists among the Cherokees that the Xuala was driven from the section after 1540 by the Cherokees, but no authentic information can be established as to this. In 1671, Gov. Berkeley sent Capt. Henry Batte with a company of Rangers who crossed the Blue Ridge into Floyd County, and in that section they found Indians living who were said to be remnants of that Tribe, but by 1685 they were all gone. The Shawnees were westward, in Ohio, and perhaps never made many inroads into the present Southwest Virginia. We must, therefore, accept the theory that the Cherokees were the only Indians in our section, immediately prior to the coming of the white man.

But the vast area embracing the Holston, the headwaters of the Kentucky, the Cumberland and the Big Sandy Rivers, seems to have never been permanent abode of any Indians. One reason was the enmity between the Shawnees and the Cherokees, it being bitter enough to deter either Tribe from such a permanent settlement. It was the buffer section separating the two tribes. This condition continued perhaps until rather close to the year 1800, or only about 160 years ago.

As late as 1768, the last great battle between two Indians tribes was fought in Tazewell County. Early in the summer of that year about 200 Cherokee Indians camped at a lick to spend the summer in hunting. I am firmly convinced that this place was what is now called Four Ways, two miles east of Tazewell. The Martingale Restaurant is located on this land. Since perhaps considerably before 1850 this land has been owned by the Peery family. When I was a boy it was owned by Capt. Edd Perry, a Confederate soldier. He died about 1900 or before that, and about that date his land was partitioned among his heirs. There were five of them, and their father had left them 1050 acres of the finest blue grass land on earth. At the Chicago World Fair in 1892 his sod was awarded the first prize. It was no this farm that "Sweet Alice Ben Bolt" was written. Mr. G. A. Martin, a young lawyer from Norfolk, visited this farm and when I was a very young boy I remember that he married the only daughter of Capt. Edd. He found many, many artifacts left by the Indians, paid boys to hunt them for him, later mounted them in a large glass case, and I bought the entire lot from him during the last years of his life. I have them in my office, and will be glad to show them to anyone interested. There are about 1700 to 1800 of them, mounted according to the Smithsonian method.

But to continue my story about the last great battle between Indian tribes in this section: Later in the summer of 1768 several hundred Shawnee Indians appeared and their chief sent to the Cherokees a demand that they immediately leave. The answer of the Cherokees was defiant, and both sides began to prepare for battle. The Cherokees retired to the top of Rich Mountain, about six or seven miles distant, near to or perhaps partly on the farm now owned by Judge F. W. Smith, and there during the night threw up a breastwork several hundred yards long and three or four feet high. The battle lasted three days, but in the end the Shawnees retired.

No permanent Indians villages seems to have ever been found in this section. I cannot believe that Buchanan County was ever so settled by the Indians, because the mountains were steep, rocky, covered with forest trees, and had no rich and which would grow good grass to feed dear, as the fields of Tazewell, Russell, Washington, Smythe and Wythe counties would. Hence, it was merely a place where roving bands of Indians would come to fish and hunt for short periods of time and as a passway from the grass fields of Kentucky to the grass fields of the Clinch and Holston rivers. No doubt Short's Gap was frequently used as a passway from the Levisa to the Clinch waters, but no Indian stayed in this county very long. There was no reason for so doing.

Just when the first white man came to what is now Buchanan County is not known. There is no doubt but that white settlers came to the county and settled here many years before they bought any land. The country was rough, steep, wild, no roads, no pasture or grass lands. A man could bring his family, clear some land, build a log hut, and would have to pay nothing for it.

The land at first belong to the State of Virginia and the only way a person could acquire title to it was to obtain a grant from the Commonwealth. Also, by a person could acquire title to it was to obtain a grant from the Commonwealth. Also, by a statute passed by the legislature, a person settling on land, using and possessing it for five years and paying taxes on it at any time during said five years, would have the title of said land. If he went before the Court and proved those facts, the Court would enter an order so stating, whereupon by statute the Commonwealth's title to said land would be relinquished to him.

After the Revolutionary War, mostly during the seventeen nineties, the State of Virginia, owning all the land from the Atlantic to the Pacific, or claiming same by virtue of settlement in the name of the King of England, granted huge tracts of land to those furnishing aid to the colonies during that war. As practically all the lands east of the Blue Ridge Mountains, including perhaps all of he Valley of Virginia, had already been taken up by settlers, these large grants were issued of land lying in the main Allegheny Range of Mountains. The better lands in Tazewell, Russell, Washington, Giles, Smythe, and Wythe Counties had likely been so taken up. But west and northwest of Tazewell and Russell counties in what is now Dickenson, Buchanan and parts of Wise counties, in Virginia (and Mercer, Raleigh, McDowell, Mingo and Logan counties in West Virginia) where the lands were less valuable, there remained hundreds of thousands of acres of land still owned by the state.

Around 1850 the Warders began to sell land to citizens, and junior grants lying within the 200,000 acre and the 500,000 acre grants were issued in increasing numbers, as settlers became more numerous.

My investigations lead me to believe that the first permanent settler of Buchanan was Frederick Stiltner. When I first came to the county to live in January 1919, I talked to Christopher Stiltner who, as I recall, stated he was a grandson of Frederick. Basil Stiltner, long employed in the office of the Commissioner of the Revenue at Grundy, and who is now 74 years of age, states the original Frederick, as a very young man, shipped as a stowaway on a boat bound from Hamburg, Germany, to Norfolk; nearly starved, he had to show himself at last. After landing at Norfolk, he joined the British army as a paid Hessian soldier. He did not like it, deserted and went west to reach the mountains where the British could not find him. He was also no doubt avoiding the American troops. He finally reached Swords Creek in Russell County, and spent a few weeks with a widow and her two children. He left there and crossed Sandy Ridge, down Levisa River to the lower end of the present town of Grundy, and spent the winter in a hollow poplar tree which had blown down. Returning to the widow in the spring he married her and brought her and children back and they built a small log hut near the poplar tree. In 1827, based on a survey dated in 1821, he obtained a grant for 124 acres of land extending along the river from below Little Prater Creek nearly to Vansant.

I am strongly inclined to believe that there were two Frederick Stiltners, a Senior and a Junior, and that the Senior was the one who came from Germany. Basil may have confused the two. The boy who came over in 1777 was perhaps 17, and so was born about 1760. Christopher was born in 1835, and it was not likely that his father was sired by a Frederick who was then about 75. It is more likely that his father was Frederick, Jr. And further, it is my recollection that Christopher told me it was his grandfather, not his father, who came from Germany. Otherwise, the story told me by Christopher and Basil are the same.

One of the Fredericks in 1832 conveyed his 124 acre grant to John Yates. Hannibal A. Compton, former Commissioner of the Revenue of the county, says in his history written for the 1958 Centennial, that Robert Looney came first to the county, and then Joseph and John Looney in 1823. In some of the histories it is stated that the Looneys came from Botetourt County, Virginia, but other writers say they came from Tazewell County. I am inclined to believe that they came from Botetourt to that part of Tazewell County which afterwards became Buchanan County.

Another very early settler was Milton Ward who, with all of his family and some ten to fifteen Negroes, came from Bowen's or Ward's Cover in Tazewell County, and settled at the mouth of Big Young Branch of Dismal. In 1850 he obtained 3 grants, and in 1873 he bought a large tract of land from the Warders, supposed to be about three thousand acres, for which he paid $200.00. A large family of Wards now live in that section of the county. His slaves all remained with his family, and are buried in the family grave yard. The old log house stood until recent years, and the site is now occupied by Tom Ward's widow.

The Colemans, ancestors of Marjorie Coleman (my law partner at Grundy) were also very early settlers of the county. Miss Coleman's father and mother were both Colemans, distantly related. Incidently, her father's kinfolk were Confederate sympathizers while her mother's were Northern sympathizers. Miss Coleman states that her information is that four brothers settled in Buchanan County who were from eastern Virginia and, while she does not know the date they came, her mother's father, Daniel B. Coleman, was born in Buchanan County about 1830, on the right fork of Paw Paw. It seems reasonable to believe that the family must have come to the county very early, certainly in the first quarter of the 19th century. One of the four brothers, Peter, settled farther up into the county, on Bull or Poplar Creek. Another brother, Richard D. Coleman, settled on Home Creek and was killed by William McClanahan during the Civil War. Richard D. Coleman patented many thousand acres of land in the county, but I am unable to locate any grant earlier than 1835.

at Kistler Saturday night. He was working alone when the accident occurred
and his lifeless body was found by other miners. He was about 37 years old,
married, and the father of six children.

Source: Kathy Hill
Jason moved from Buchanan County, VA to Logan County, WV in 1914. He left Bessie
and daughter Opal in VA with the understanding that he would send for them
when he found work and a place to stay. Bessie got impatient and ended up
walking to Logan with her infant daughter. My grandmother, Georgia Lea
Blankenship, was born next, followed by three more siblings. The family
lived in Logan County until Jason's death in 1921.

Notes for BESSIE RACHEL ALLEN:
Source: Kathy Hill
According to oral family history, she was estranged from her mother
and father for several years after this even though the families lived across
the creek from each other. (perhaps this was because of Jason's background?)

After Jason's death Bessie Allen moved to Greenup, KY to join her mother and father who had
moved there from Buchanan County, VA. There she met and married Roby Brown.
They had seven (I think) children and lived, variously, in the Logan area and
in Kentucky. They and Jason are buried in a small, well-kept cemetary in
Load, KY. I visited it with my grandmother and father when we were in Logan
last summer.

Bessie and William J. were twins

23. GARFIELD JAMES A.9 BLANKENSHIP (WILBURN B.8, PRESLEY7, OBEDIAH6, WILLIAM5, ISHAM4, JOHN B.3, RALPH2 BLANKINSHIP, BLANKINSOPP1)1 was born January 1882 in Pike County, Kentucky. He married (1) STELLA J. DOTSON1. He married (2) EVA PRATER1. He met (3) MARIAH E. DOTSON1, daughter of WILLIAM DOTSON and KEZIAH SMITH. She was born 1872 in Peter Creek, Pike County, Kentucky, and died June 04, 1927 in Stopover, Pike County, Kentucky.

Notes for MARIAH E. DOTSON:
Notes from Carrol Ullrich, daughter of Mar Hurley..
This Mariah Dotson Campbell is the one over whom my Great Grandpa Nehemiah 'Mar' Hurley (Born: May 1866 according to 1900 Pike Co. Census Records) was killed by the Blankenship. (Carrol Hurley Ullrich))

February 9, 1997, Dorcas Hobbs (address: P.O.B. 752; Pikeville, Kentucky 41502) looked at the Court House in Pike Co. She sent me the following:

Pike County Circuit Court Clerk's office, Courthouse
September 23, 1922 - Commonwealth vs W. H. Parsons, Wilful Murder Buddie Hurley, Mariah Lester, James R. Hurley, E. L. Dotson, James A. Hurley, and Mont Blankenship witnesses for the Commonwealth.
Mont Blankenship, Wesley Blankenship, James Blankenship, Melvin Blankenship and James L. Dotson, witnesses for the defendant.

June 1, 1923 - Commonwealth vs W. H. Parsons, Murder 11 years - reformatory
June 15, 1923 - Commonwealth vs W. H. Parsons, Murder 4 years hard work labor - Reformatory at Frankfort.
June 5, 1923, Motion for new trial continued until September 1923
Appeal for a new trial was filed June 15, 1923

The reason for all the above: My Grandma's story of my Great-Grandfather's murder: My G-Grandfather was killed in January 1901. We were always told it was over a poker game. However, Grandma Bevins says it was over a woman named MARIAH CAMPBELL. Grandma says after work Nehemiah stopped at her house and he and Bill Blankenship and Bill Parsons got in an argument and one of the Bill's shot Nehemiah. He laid there all night. My Great-Grandma Lena Hurley had sent her 16 year old son, Jim to find out why Nehemiah hadn't gotten home, Jim found his dad dying. Jim held Nehemaih in his arms all night. Parsons and Blankenship left and could not be found. For years my Grandfather Jim looked for them. Then in 1920 he heard they were in the State of Oregon, so he hocked their piano to have bounty hunters go bring them back.
They were brought back and tried but one of them was killed by Freel Thackett and Grandpa Jim was so happy that Freel had killed him that he gave Freel cigarettes and helped him while he was in prison. Grandma said she thought Freel died of TB in prison. She also said Bill Blankenship did go to prison for a while, got out and then slate fell on him in the mines and killed him. This all adds up about half way. I am still working at the truth, and would love to see any court records as to disposition of the trial, etc. (Carrol Hurley Ullrich)


Pete Wolford says: (9/20/1998) Mariah and Ed Campbell had 3 or 4 children before his death. They lived at Woodman, Kentucky, Pike Co. After his death, she had children by several different men. One was Pete's mother. Pete's mother's father was Ance Sansom.

Pete Wolford says: Mariah was married to, or living with, a man by the name of Raine Lester when she died. My aunt Oma Campbell told me an interesting story about him once. Raine was considered a mean and dangerous man. Mariah was afraid of him. After she got sick, she came to stay with her son Robert Campbell, and his wife Oma, so Oma could take care of her. One day Oma looked out and saw Raine coming up the creek bed on his horse. She put a pistol under her apron and walked out to the fence to meet him. When he rode up closer, she could see that he had pistols buckled on. He asked if Mariah was staying there. Oma told him yes, Mariah was there, but she was sick and didn't need to be bothered. Oma said he rode on and didn't try to cause any trouble. Mariah died of cancer June 4, 1927.

Notes for WILLIAM N. HATFIELD:
These notes obtained from Billie Rae Carr homepage
There are several somewhat conflicting stories about the death of William . The following is related by Ruth Hatfield as told to her by Vicey Blankenship Hatfield. He was involved in a gun battle with a Baldwin-Felts detective during the mine wars of West Virginia. Both men received mortal wounds during this battle, the detective begging for a drink of water from the newly widowed Vicey Blankenship Hatfield. Vicey obliged his request by filling his hat with water from the nearby river. This incident occurred about a year after the infamous massacre at Matewan and about the same time as the armed rebellion of over 10,000 coal miners in the area. This rebellion brought the US Army into West Virginia. Among the forces was Brigadier General Billy Mitchell with a flight of three DeHavilland Bombers (DH-4B) from Bolling Field in the District of Columbia

He used to stop by our house, sit on the porch and play the banjo. As you can see by the dates, he died as a young man. He was married to a lady who comes to our church. Everyone calls her Toots, but her name is Vernice. She was a Jackson--I believe her mother's name was Valentine. She and Boone had no children. After his death she married Sam Hurley, Jr., and they have several children, now grown. I also remember Seymour. He, too, lived at Hurricane.

Holly Scarberry and his wife Gracie were on their way to Gracie's parent's (Dock Morgan and Sarah Prater Pruitt) to hoe corn that morning when they saw the body. Holly and Gracie were the parents of Hubbert Scarberry (notes from Marlene Bailey, Holly's niece)

My brother Kenneth was at the house, and my sister Nina got here just exactly an hour later. 3 years ago yesterday, we buried my husband. Dec. is not a good month for me.
Hope you have a good Christmas.

48. LILLIAN ANGES10 COLEMAN (LYDIA ANGELINE9, PAULINA8 BLANKENSHIP, PRESLEY7, OBEDIAH6, WILLIAM5, ISHAM4, JOHN B.3, RALPH2 BLANKINSHIP, BLANKINSOPP1)1 was born February 16, 1914 in Ira, Buch. Co., VA. She married EDWARD FRANKLIN ELGIN1 June 21, 1941 in Bristol, Tennessee, son of ALBERT ELGIN and ETHEL HOWERY. He was born Abt. 1912 in Switchback, West Virginia.

Notes for LILLIAN ANGES COLEMAN:
Date: July 8, 1976, Grundy, Buch. Co., VA.
"My name is Lillian Agnes (my sister's name is Lydia Jane). I married Edward Franklin Elgin, June 21, 1941 at Bristol, Tennessee. My divorce was granted on my anniversary 8 years later (1949). I was born February 16, 1914 at Ira, VA (no longer a P.O.)"

"Dad - John Henderson Coleman born in VA. I think 12-7-1870. Died December 6, 1954 at my home in Grundy. Mother Lydia Angeline Coleman born December 30, 1870 in Pike County Kentucky died at my home in Barbourville, Ky. 1959."

"In 1860, William Coleman had 7 children so obviously his marrage in 1856 was his second marriage. Kozee in his book Pioneer Families of Eastern and Southeastern, Kentucky, gives her name as MARY SCARBERRY, but she had been married to a SCARBERRY and had two children Martin and Betty (called Betts) but I'm not sure dad always said her name was Polly - It could have been a second name or nickname. William and Curtis were brothers. Curtis's marriage bond was signed by Sgt. Daniel Coleman who was probably his father, but could have been an uncle, brother, etc."

"Grandma Blankenship always spelled her name with a A on the end rather than an E. I asked her one time if it shouldn't be an E, but she was very particular that it was not. Kozee has the marriage of Presley (Not Priestly) Blankenship and Mary (Polly) Lockhart on the date you had. But she was married to a Lockhart and had some children. Her maiden name was WHITEHEAD. Grandma always said she was a 'little flat-headed dutch'. "

Carrol Hurley's questions and Lillian Elgin's answers which she also responded to in the same letter of July 8, 1976:
In Carrol's letter to Lillian she told her about her Grandpa Jim's letter dated May 13, 1927 that said, "They still don't know who killed Eli. Green Dotson's wife heard a lot of shooting the night he was killed down about Lidge's. Don't believe Shade & Myrtle (referring to Shadrack Estep and Myrtle Coleman) want to spend any money to find out who killed him." And Carrol asked Lilllian if they ever found out. She didn't know but said "This Green was probably Peter Dotson's son. This "Green" was not related to Rose or John S.'s Green. They used to say Peter could be hired to swear lies and that Bud would get him to swear for him. He told Bud one time when there was a lot to remember to: 'Put it down on your writintyper, I can read readin' but I can't read writin'. Rose came in after I wrote this and said Peter was a brother to John S." (She is referring to Rose Dotson Coleman, June's mother. Lillian had said she would ask Rose some questions the next time she came into the library (meaning the Buchanan County Library at Grundy, VA., and that she came often).
Then Carrol asked Lillian - "Shade & Ruth Estep's son William (born 1842 was killed May 24, 1884 by James Hurley. Could this be Uncle Jim who married Matilda Jane Coleman that killed William Estep. " Lillian said: "I believe that was right, but I don't remember. I'll try to find out.

Carrol told Lillian: Grandma Flossie one time that my Grandpa Jim had a child born about 1918 by a Maude Coleman, daughter of Ep Coleman. Who is this Ep Coleman? Was Maude the same Maude Coleman who married Hayes (your Uncle Hayes). Lillian;s response was "Yes, Ep was my dad's brother and Maude was his daughter. She married my mom's brother Hayes and they had a son Jesse. After they separated, she had a son by Jim whose name was Tom, but he died quite young, perhaps 6 years old."

Carrol asked about Presley Blankenship and Mary Lockhart and said Dicey born 1837 was living with them in 1850 but she must have been someone else's child since Presley and Mary were not married until 1840. Lillian corrected this saying: "It is listed in the marriage records in Kozee's book that Presley and Polly married and that was what Grandma Paulina called them. Polly had married DIRK LOCKHART first and had 2 or 3 children."

Then Carrol listed the children, supposedly of Presley and Polly, according to 1850-1860 Pike Co., Ky. Census. Lilllian's response to the names will be in parenthesis.
Dicey born 1837 VA
James A. (Lockhart) born 1840 KY - not home 1860
Wm. W. born 1842 KY
Rachel born 1846 Virginia - married 6/30/1859 John McCoy Pike Co., KY
Bird born 1846 VA (I'm not sure this was Demaris' father, but his name was Bird)
Richard born 1848 VA - married 7/28/1869 Pike Co., KY to Julie Coleman (Dad's 1/2 sister. They always called him R.F. and Julie was dad's sister)
Mary born 1850 KY
Washington born (Note: 1860 Census says Wash age 18. He probably is Wm. W. Above)
Pauline 8 born KY (Wilburn, Lydia, Polly besides Paulina Peggy Margaret. They were probably Lockhart's by her first marriage. I'm almost sure of Dicy)
Conley born 1854 KY
John born 1846 KY - In 1860 James, Rachel and Dicy were not living with Presley and Mary, but a James Lockhart age 20 lived next door - same age as James A. above, which could mean that James nor Dicy were Presley's children, but Mary's before her marriage.

You know, when mother and dad separated, I was grown practically, and he married this woman and she didn't have too much education or anything else. I don't know why in the world he ever married her but anyway, she had a couple of children by him, so I have a couple of step siblings.
Carroll: So who did he marry the second time?
Lillian: He married Marie (Mary) Blair. She didn't have too much education and not too much sense.
Carroll: Your mom and dad separated and your mom never got married again?
Lillian: She talked about getting married one time to this Dotson. They didn't get married. I don't know why. Mother was pretty independent.
Carroll: Do you have pictures of your mother?
Lillian: That top picture is her.
Carroll: Marge looks like her. I think.
Lillian: You must look more like the Coleman's. Mother is a Coleman too, remember. I AM all Coleman.
Carroll: That's right, but there is a little bit of Blankenship in there. She has the same jaw line.
Lillian: I have a photograph that he painted this one from but I don't think.
Carroll: Her face is a little like Uncle Dodge.
Lillian: Mother was a lot like Uncle Dodge.
Carroll: Was she?
Lillian: Yes.

Later:
Carrol: What was your husband's name?
Lillian: Edward Franklin Elgin was my husband.
Carrol: Where did you meet him?
Lillian: He used to drive a bread truck here in town. His family was from Switchback, West Virginia. He had a brother and a sister - Sidney married and had some children. Mildred never married.

(FROM MEDICAL INFORMATION) Macular degeneration is a common eye disease that causes deterioration of the macula, the central area of the retina, the paper-thin tissue at the back of the eye where light-sensitive cells send visual signals to the brain. Sharp, clear, 'straight ahead' vision is processed by the macula. Damage to the macula results in the development of blind spots and blurred or distorted vision.

I am majoring in Information Technology Systems and Administration of Justice. I would like to be a State Trooper for a couple of years and hope this position along with more college will lead into a position in police forensics. My long-term goal is to eventually get into FBI or Secret Service. I have many interests but my favorite is singing. I have recorded two audiotapes the first is titled "Hooked On You" and the second one is titled "Angels". The second one has a song on it that I wrote about my wife and her three sisters. I do wedding photography and decorating on the weekends. I hope to use my photography skills in Law Enforcement someday.

FOSTER PARENTS

We, Gary and Marlene have been foster parents since 1979.
First foster child was Kimberly Dawn Lester age 10, born June 22, 1969.
Kimberly lived in our home for the next 6 years until 1985.
We didn't take in any other children until the year 1997 after Gary had been on the Social Services Board for a while, they talked us into it again.
So June of 1997 we took in a set of twins, Kimberly and Christopher White, age 4 months. Born March 1997. They only stayed with us for a week. We got too attached to them in that short time.
Cindy age 6 and James Sargent age 14 months were placed with us during the summer of 1997, we discovered that James had some bad health problems and threw temper tantrums that we had no training to deal with so after 6 months he was placed in another home where the parents had therapeutic training. Cindy wanted to continue living with us so we kept her until school ended June 7, 1998. She was then placed in the same home as James because it was believed that they would be going back home to their dad. But things didn't work out and they were both adopted by a young couple. Their names have been changed. Cindy is now Taylor.......and James in now...... Our case worker told us that they adjusted to the change fairly well and were happy. She said Cindy asks about us everytime she talks to her. I don't think James remembers us.
Jody Ellis Deel, age 14, born January 2, 1985, came to live with us the first week of May 1998. Cindy was still living in our household at that time.
Allison Faye McClanahan, age 17, born March 25, 1983, came to us on May 29, 2000. Because of problems arising with her family and involving our family, for our safety as well as hers, she was placed in another home on July 29, 2000.
>>Case Worker for Kimberly Lester was Susan Raines.
>>Case Worker for Kimberly & Christopher White , Cindy & James Sargent, and Allison McClanahan was Rebecca Slone.
>>Case Worker for Jody Deel was Anita Anderson.
Year 2000, our former foster daughter Kim Lester who still calls us mom and dad has two daughters Madison Dale, born Dec. 22, 1998 and Kaitlyn Michele, born August 2, 2000. She is teaching them to call us Maw Maw and Paw Paw. She married Dale Bland, Oct. 3, 1998. They live at Bethel, N.C. near Greenville.
Wednesday, October 17, 2001 during the evening Josh Adams age 17 born Oct. 23, 1983 came to stay with us. About 3 am the next morning Thursday Oct. 18th our phone rang, Social Services had a sister and brother, Beth and Nathaniel (Nathan) Hammonds who needed a temp....place to stay until the court decided where to place them. Friday Oct. 19th Beth was placed in a girls home but Nathan remained with us. Nathan was born July 1, 1988.
Josh left here on Saturday, November, , 2001 , he thought he was going to boss all of us around and do the opposite of what he was supposed to be doing. He is using his girlfriend big-time. My advice to her would be find someone who loves you.
>>Case worker for Josh was Rebecca Slone.
>>Case worker for Nathaniel is Connie Perkins.

Notes for IVAN BROOKS ESTEP:
Ivan was mixed with drugs, his death resulted from that. Apparently I understand that he owed for drugs he was supposed to have sold, (no money, no drugs) he was ambushed in his barn and shot 14 times, 6 times through his front and 8 through his back. Police reports said there was blood splattered all around his barn walls where he rolled on them each time he was shot. At the time, he and his wife were talking about getting back together and making their marriage work. She found him dead.

Pallbearers were friends


I found the following article along with several other murders commited in Buch. Co., VA. Pamela M. Estep

From a Virginia Mountaineer newspaper article; dated:Thursday, September 3, 1981

Buchanan No Longer Good Place to Commit Murder

"We have some good juries here lately, but we have always had good juries here in Buchanan County. We have a fine judge also," Commonwealth's Prosecuting Attorney Michael (Mickey) G. McGlothlin said. "But we have had some real bad cases and the investigating officers have put in some hard work."
He said there was a "tremendous amount of police work" in the just concluded Ernie Lester murder trial. Lester was sentenced to life plus one year for the murder of Ivan Brooks Estep near Oakwood, Buch. Co., VA last September.
There was probably more information in this case about drug dealing than any other case we have had," McGlothliln said. "It is the first case where we have had anyone killed over a drug dispute."
He said the Commonwealth's position in the case was that both Lester and Estep had been involved in drug dealing and that the motive for the shooting was that Lester had stolen drugs from Estep and thought he was going to "snitch" on him.
Estep's body was found in a barn near his trailer home shot 14 times with .380 and .25 caliber handguns. McGlothlin theorized that Lester held a gun in each hand, shooting both simultaneously.
The commonwealth's attorney credited Special Investigator J. E. Davidson of the Virginia State Police, Criminal Investigator Paul Crouse from McGlothlin's office, Deputy Gene Davis and former Deputy Ralph White with the sheriff's department, for the investigative work in the Lester case.

Chris was in an auto accident Tuesday afternoon, February 27, 2001, his vehicle hit a tree in front of Eddie and Betsy Dotson's, just below the Kelsa Chapel at Ira, Buchanan County, Virginia. Lifelined from Buchanan General Hospital at Slate Creek, near Grundy, VA. to Bristol, Virginia.

I received the following update from Chris' first cousin Patrick and Robin Justus.
Chris has brain swelling and no movement on his left side. He had a stroke and the doctor's think he may have had it before he wrecked but they don't know for sure. They had to remove his spleen and he
broke and cut his leg really bad. We went out there and saw him Wednesday the 28th and he opened his eyes for a couple of seconds and squeezed Patrick's hand.
They are keeping him knocked out with drugs until next week.

Update: Five days later, Sunday, March 4th Chris' doctor told the family that half his brain was dead and he didn't have much chance to make it. Tuesday, March 6th his temperature went up to 104* and then that evening he started bleeding in his stomach and brain. Blood in the brain kills brain cells. They tested him the next day, Wednesday, March 7th, and he was completely brain dead. Life support was unhooked. He passed away a while later.
