Virginia, my husband has alot of Barkers, Stevens/Stephens and Blevins in them. They are from Elliott, Carter, Rowan and Boyd Counties in KY. Older ones come from North Carolina. Maybe we can help each other. Have about decided to try and go the route of the Barkers for husband and son's Sons of American Revolution since we hit a brick wall in trying to find documentation needed for the Blevins. Good Luck.
Update on my research of my Hale line.
A before unknown cousin was located who is the great granddaughter of Henry Hale a brother to John Hale, my great grandfather. She stated that her mother (Mary Quinn) always told her and her brother they were not really Hale. They were AKERS. Her mother told them an Aker was adopted either by Henry Hale or his father John Hale, my great great grandfather.
Would any one know of any Acker/Aker/Akers that was taken in by a Hale family? Thanks for any help.
I'm researching mainly in Graves & Hickman counties: Holland, Clark, Morgan, Midyett/Midgett. I'd love to hear from anyone with these connections in the area.
Thinking about KY mysteries,
we have 2 ELDER DNA kits which match the MAINE DNA
group, but are found in Madison Co KY - they listed the wrong ELDER ancestors, so we now need to find their MAINE connection.

Tim forwarded your query, and I rembered joining the Genwise group.
Here's my search on Ancestry, using RACHEL ELDER entry in 1850 KY:

Someone who has done some work with ELDER out there?
I wonder if perhaps you could help me with a little mystery...
Clara Levinia Whitfill (b. 19 Aug 1860, Grayson County KY; d. 13 Apr 1940, Jefferson County, KY)
daughter of Thomas Jefferson Whitfill and Elizabeth Ann Nokes.
was first married (14 Nov 1879 in Grayson County, KY) to Francis Greenberry Dalton (b. 10 May 1856, Breckinridge County, KY; d. 15 Apr 1898, Breckinridge County, KY)
The two had 8 children together for whom I can find record. (Indeed, one of them being my 2nd great grandfather)
Just recently I kicked over an internet rock and discovered a marriage record from 8 Aug 1905 for Clara L Dalton, daughter of TJ Whitfill and Elisabeth Whitfill, to a Leonard Elder born in 1845, son of Jno. and Rachel Elder.
He would have been 60 at the time, while she was 46.
I can find NO records of this man anywhere. No idea who he was beyond this one record.
When she died in Louisville in 1940, her name was given as "Clara Dalton" and she was eventually buried next to her first husband, Francis Greenberry Dalton, in St. Romuald Cemetery in Breckinridge.
So just when I thought I knew my 3rd great grandma, I find this little tidbit--do you have any idea who this Leonard Elder might have been? Perhaps he died soon after the marriage? Perhaps it was one of those brief marriages of convenience that sometimes happened back then (widow in need of support, older widower in need of domestic help)?
