Hi Kathi-

If you know someone with an membership (or your library or local Family History Library has one you can use), there is a listing for Lona Stewart, born 1906,

Father:  William Barton Stewart

Elizabeth 'Eliza' Gibson,

in a public family tree named "MATHIS DEMONBREUN Family Tree" (hopefully that's not you).  Sorry, my subscription ran out about a month ago.  Happy hunting!

Hi! I'm new here. I've got a dilemma and have no idea how to resolve it. I hope someone here can give me some insight.

My grandmother claims to have been born in Upsonville, White Springs, KY in 1905, and her only daughter agrees wholeheartedly.

I have yet to find either city or county listed on any KY map. The only White Springs counties I have found happen to be in only 2 other states and Upsonville, well, also out of KY.

Is there anyone that can lead me in a direction away from this brick wall?

I am looking for info on David Barton Brewer and his wife Polly Whitehead also spelled Whithead Known to have lived in Laurel Co KY in 1885.

I have an ancestor called Thurman Ross. He was born in Shelbyville, Shelby County, Kentucky in 1799. Does anyone have any relations to Thurman Ross?

Hi all! I am a "Geneablogger" and I have started writing about different people's ancestors for Treasure Chest Thursday. First week I wrote about my ancestor Jesse Vawter, from Madison, Indiana. Today I featured Abraham Wrightsman, an Underground Railroad conductor from near Kokomo. I am looking for more ancestors to spotlight. You can check out my blog at or email me directly about your ancestor:


Looking forward to hearing from you!

Thanks for asking John.  I have the same question for Frazier/Frazer/Fraysher/etc.  If anyone with this last name has tested or is interested in testing, please feel free to contact me -- Paul Frazier Gerhart at

Our line came from Moccasin Creek, southwest VA about 1800 led by Solomon (b1773), George, Jonathan, Squire, and perhaps other Fraziers from Russell County (what is now Scott County), VA into what was then Floyd (now Letcher and Breathitt) County, KY.

Are there any Acker, Aker, Akers, or Hale's in the KY group, or does anyone know of any of these surnames that have done a Y-DNA test, so I can compare my Y-DNA results?

Denise - try this website:

it is for the association of Diosean Archivists.  I have given you the contact page.  They should be able to help you find the right archive.


Comment by Denise Damm on May 6, 2013 at 2:32pm

Carma-Lu Do you know how I would get in touch with them? I couldn't find anything in my online search of the Diocese that told me where the Archives were. Thanks.
