George W Pinkston was my grt-grandfather. Bettie Elizabeth Pinkston was my father's mother. I'm not sure who her mother was. My dad said Bettie's mother was Cherokee.
George was born in Breckinridge Co., KY. Bettie & my dad, Claredon Elgin Leet, were born in Daviess Co., Ky.
My dad's parents died when he was very young, so, he didn't know much about the family.
Hope to hear from someone who does know something!
Thanks, Charlene

Do you know of Aines Dewey Pinkston? He was born 1918- Died 1972. He is my Grandfather!!! I recently found a short genealogy in my Mothers cedar chest of the Pinkston Family. Aines Father is listed as Leslie Pinkston, Mother Rosie Pinkston, Brother William ( a Welder by profession?) and a sister named Leslie Edge. ARE YOU THE LONG LOST CONTACT I've BEEN SEARCHING FOR?? Does the name Ruth Jones come to mind? If you are the right person please contact me ASAP, I want to meet my long lost relatives and get some pictures and info for my genealogy records.

Don't know if we are blood or not. My Grandfather was Aines Dewey Pinkston 1918-1972. His father is listed as Leslie Pinkston, Mother as Rosie, Brother William Pinkston(deceased). Aines worked at Rolling Pin Pastries in Owensboro. I don't know much more than this. My mom was put up for adoption in about 1946 and never knew her parents. I found her birth certificate in an old cedar chest belonging to her adopted father. The birth certificate lists Aines(Annis) Dewey Pinkston as Father and Ruth Jones as Mother. I have read that Ruth and Aines may have been cousins(by way of Tanner), so other family may not be aware of the birth. Ruth lived at 1412 Hall St, a few blocks north of the bakery and a couple blocks east of the hospital where my Mom was born in 1943. If you know any Pinkstons in Owensboro please ask them if any of this rings a bell. I'm dying to meet some relatives from that side of my family!! THANKS
