Does anyone have any information on a William A Mink who was a civil war soldier. I think he may have been the brother to Celia Jane Mink who married Adam Cromer. I was visiting the old Mink cemetery on Skaggs creek in Rockcastle county and saw a headstone that reads William A Mink co. A 4th Ky.MTD INF.also Adam Cromer co.B 10th Ky. INF Adam and Celia Cromer also have headstones that are fallen over.Adam 1845-1885 Celia 1847-1945. Adam was a brother to my ggrandfather Jarvis Jackson Cromer. This cemetery is in need of a lot of work to restore it. It has basically been overtaken by the woods that surrounds it.Anyone interested in doing some work there let me know. Ken Cromer

I know I am related to both your Mink and Cromer ancestors but I am wondering about the Prewitts. I have a couple of questions. Are you related to Jonas Pitman? he was a civil war soldier also, he is buried at Walnut Grove. He married a Mcqueen a sister to my ggrandfather Thomas Jefferson McQueen their daughter Amanda or Mandy married Daniel Prewitt and moved to Laurel county. She was born in 1865 and died in 1957. She lived accross the road from where I grew up near East Bernstadt Ky.She was born on what my dad calls the old Doc Norton place accross from Walnut Grove on the east side of Skaggs creek. We always called her Aunt Mandy since she was my mother's great aunt. The other question is where is Wabd? and how do you pronounce it? i have saw the word in old Mt Vernon Signal news and always wondered

I am not sure where the Prewitts originated before coming to Rockcastle County. I only know of my dad's parents, Charlie Logan Prewitt (Pruitt) and Mary Eleandor Bullock Prewitt (Pruitt). Mary died in the early 1960's, bore I was born and Logan died when I was only 4 or 5 years old. Their names could be spelled Prewitt or Pruitt. Dad's name on his birth certificate is Pruitt, but all my brother

Most of my connections to the Mink line is through the McQueen family. Both families came from Johnson county Tennessee to Rockcastle county Ky.in the mid 1800s. I don't have anything on a Lewis Alexander Mink but the name Alexander shows up repeatedly in the Mink line. William Amos had a son named Wesley Alexander Mink. Several of the McQueens married into the Mink families, as well as Cromers. The Mink line is pretty well documented on Ancestry .com

My Great GrandFather was Joe William Minks who married Sidney Elizabeth Cromer, They are both buried at the Providence Church of Christ Cemetery in Rocastle County, Kentucky. The Minks line and the Mink line are one and the same, In the immediate families that are buried there , that are my kins folk some have Minks and others have Mink but they are all the same. I have more documents of Great-Grandpa Minks Brothers and Sisters, their dates of birth and deaths. When I have more time I will try to get back to this web site and list what I have , It is quite a bit. Also I know that the Bradleys, Renners, and Cromers and some of the Frenches are connected to the Minks and Mink familys. Give me an E- mail if you would like.

My husband's Grandfather Harvey Prewitt was raised in Rockcastle. His father was William Thomas Prewitt, married to Mary Alice Smith. Harvey married Flora Manerva Crank and they lived on Back Creek near Lancaster. All of William's kids were born in Rockcastle around Brodhead. Does your family know any of these Prewitt's? All from same area, surely some relation.
