ASHLEY, CORUM, HUGHEY, MICHAEL, MILLER, RYKER posted by Robert Lyda on Friday, August 29, 1997 

I am seeking information on Peter HUGHEY and his wife-Rachel RYKER, Rachel's parents and sibblings. I only know Rachel's father to be Samuel RYKER, mother unknown to me. Peter HUGHEY was the son of Joseph HUGHEY and Mary MILLER. Joseph HUGHEY had been a sheriff of Buncombe County, North Carolina prior to moving his family to Shelby County, Kentucky. Peter HUGHEY was born in 1798 in Buncombe Co., NC. but married Rachel RYKER about 1818/20 in Shelby Co., Ky., where they resided about 2 years. Rachel must have been born about 1800 in Shelby Co., Ky. as well as Peter and Rachel's 1st child about 1820. About 1820/21 Peter moved his family to Jefferson County, Indiana where several children were born. About 1840 Peter moved his family to Asheville, Buncombe Co., NC where he died about 1865. Rachel must have moved with a cild to Eureka, Kansas where she died and is probably buried. I am also seeking information on Pinkney M. CORUM and his wife-Susan Elizabeth MICHAEL(s), parents, sibblings, etc. Their child-Bertha Louise CORUM is my husband's grandmother. I have no names for her sibblings. According to Bertha's death certificate, Bertha was born 3/31/1885 in Laurel Bloomery, Johnson Co., Tennessee. Susan was born in Laurel Bloomery, TN., also but I have no date-just an estimate of 1840/60. I estimate the birthdate of Pinkney to be about 1840/60 also, birthplace to be Kentucky. Bertha married Benjamin Boone ASHLEY 3/6/1901 in Abingdon, Washington Co., Virginia where several of their children were born. They later moved to Johnson City, TN. where several children were born. Then the move to Opalocka/Miami, Dade Co., Florida where Bertha died 11/15/1949. However she was buried in Black Mountain, Buncombe Co., NC. Benjamin then moved to Buncombe Co, NC. but died while on a train ride back to NC from FL after the sale of his property. Death occurred 6/23/1951 in Jessup, Wayne Co., Georgia and burial was also in Black Mtn., NC. There was a problem with Bertha's burial because of some Native American Indian bloodline. She had the dark blue-black hair, dark eyes, had the typical Indian features and skin coloring which was very evident of Indian lineage. However, we know the line to be Cherokee but without any names. Since Pinkney M. CORUM was born in Kentucky (exact location known yet), I thought He may have some roots in Shelby Co. If not, maybe someone could help me anyway.
