Looking for information on information about
the descendants of Robert SCOTT who was born 1750/1760 In Rowan Co., North
Carolina. He married about 1775 in South Carolina or Tennessee. The family
lived in Tennesse, before arriving at Jefferson Co., Kentucky by 1 Jun
1791 when he paid taxes. When Shelby Co., Kentucky, was formed in 1792,
Robert SCOTT's property lay within the bounds of Shelby County. When the
1810 Census was taken, Robert SCOTT and his family were living in Henry
Co., Kentucky. He had four sons and two daughters. Sometime between 1810
and 1820 the family removed to Waterloo, Fayette Co., Indiana, where he
died about 1831. Descendants lived in Fayette Co., Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky,
Warrick Co., Indiana, Pike Co., Indiana, and elsewhere.

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.
