1. James Barnett KENNEY. Born in 1726 in Ireland. James Barnett died in Uniontown, Fayette County,
Pennsylvania in 1782; he was 56.

Kenney, James Barnett (1726 - 1782) [1]
b. 1726 in Ireland
d. 1782

The name of Kenney, variously spelled as Kenny, Kenney, and Kinney, is claimed by some authorities to have been
taken from the Gaelic Word Clenn, which is pronounced kin and means "esteemed or honored," combined with neae,
meaning "an individual." The meaning of the name , therefore, "a person of honor and esteem." This name is found in
ancient records in the various forms o Kinne, Kinnie, Kenne, Kenei, Kennie, Kenny, Kenny and Kinney. The last three
are still in general use. The Kenney family is believed to have descended from a Norman knight who was among the
followers of William the Conqueror, in the Norman invasion of England in 1066. According to Burke, the Keeney,
Kenney, Keen, etc. family was originally from Somersetshire England; of great antiquity, deriving the family name
from the place Kenne, of that country. In the second year of the reign of Henry II of England or 1156, since Henry
resigned from 1154-1189, John de Kenne held two knight fees in Kenne.

Nicholas Kenne, Kenny or Kenney went with the cadets of many Somersetshire families to Dublin. (Burke landed
Gentry of Ireland 1912) the most ancient of the several coats of arms which have been bestowed at various times on
the members of this family is that of Kenne of Somerset County. It is described as follows: Arms: Ermine (sometimes
argent), three crested gules Crest: A unicorn's head, azure bezantee, maned Or, horned of the last and sable. (Burke's
heraldry, 1844) Motto: "Tereat, luceat, foreat." (Let it hold, shine and flourish.)

It is not definitely know from which of the several illustrious lines of the family in Great Britain the first American
families of the name descended, but is practically a certainty that all of them were from a common ancestor of the
eleventh century. The members of these families were, for the most part, of nobility and landed gentry of England and
Ireland and were very prominent in affairs of State as well as in the military service of their country.

Barnett Kenney served in the American Revolution as Sergent of the 11th Pennsylvania Regiment, Continental Line.
Three of his sons also served. Joseph was killed in the Revolution according to Challey's records. John served as a
private, Captain William Harrod's Company in 1780 at the station near the Falls, in what is now Jefferson and Shelby
Counties. (Collins History of Kentucky p. 12) (James Kenney and His Descendants, Corday Leer Buckley, 1944, The
Kentuckian-Citizen, Paris, KY.)

James Kenney Sr. was born in Augusta County Virginia, near Staunton. He married there in 1771 to Mary Frame or
Froome, daughter of David Frame and for whom she named her first child, a son. As the records show, James Kenney
came to Boonsborough in 1776 and he saw the fertility of the soil and the beauty of the country. After returning to
Virginia and taking part in the Revolution, he returned to Kentucky, bringing his family with him. Polly Kenney, the
fourth child, told her children she remembered the long trip on horseback as she sat in front of her father in the same
saddle. (CLB)

VolCXXV p. 104, 124001-125000, 1916 James Kinney (1752-1814) enlisted in Virginia in Capt. Joseph Crockett's
Company, 7th Virginia regiment, commanded by Lieut. Col. Holt Richeson, Also No. 110361. And also, "Captain
James C. Kenney served in the Revolutionary war in Captain Joseph Crockett's Company, 7th Virginia commanded by
Lt Col Holt Richeson, as a mere boy. Reinlisted in 1778, taken prisoner Oct 4, 1778 at Germantown." from DAR
membership application dated 6/15/1914.

At the close of the Revolutionary War James Kenney, who held the office of Captain in the army, removed from
Virginia, his native state, and settled on a farm about three miles from what is now known as Paris, Bourbon County,
Ky. He was a successful farmer, raising large crops of hemp, then a comparatively new staple in the State; he was
twice married, the first wife was a Miss Frame, of Virginia, and the second wife was Miss Margaret Johnson, of
Nicholas County, Ky. He had sixteen children.

Notes from Susan Hard 1997: LDS records indicate that John C. "Captain" Kenney was likely James Kenney Sr,
second son of James Barnett Kenney. He would have been approximately 23-27 years old (rather than 16) at the time
of the land purchase in the mid 1770s and would have been married and had 3 children by that time. The younger John
Kenney, son of James Sr. and father of Isaac, was not born until 1775 and would have been a very young child at the
time of the land purchase.

The father of John C. Kenney came from Virginia to Kentucky about 1775-1779, bringing John C with him. He
purchased land two miles from the present site of Paris, KY. The father and son established a camp in the wilderness
and then the father returned to Virginia to bring he rest of the family to their new home, leaving John C, then just 16

years old, in the camp alone for 60 days. during that time John C. caught sight of a man across a creek, about a mile
from camp, but could not see the man plainly enough to know if he was a white man or Indian. He saw no other human
being during the time that his father was away. John C. Kenney was known as Captain Kenney, probably because he
served in the State Militia.

In the "History of Bourbon County," James Kenney is listed along with the first people to raise corn, a quarter acre
each. (p.70) "The first corn ever raised in Bourbon County was in 1775, by John Cooper, near Hinkston Creek.
Thomas Whitledge, James Kenney and several others raised corn on a quarter an acre or two each.

Notes for MOSES KENNEY: [4]
Moses Kenney moved to Illinois and was the founder of Kenney, Illinois.

The following information is from "Kenney Centennial" the Centennial History of Kenney, September 11-17, 1971.

The village of Kenney was platted and filed for the record in September of 1871, by Moses Kenney and was named by
Moses and John Kenney in honor of their father, James Kenney. It was incorporated in 1875. Kenney was started
primarily as a means of ridding himself of forty acres of ground which had been crossed diagonally by the Illinois
Central Railroad, leaving Mr. Kenney with two three-cornered tracts of land. The new town was located almost in the
exact center of Tunbridge Township and there were no buildings on the entire forty acres. As one looks backward to
the conditions as they existed at that particular time, one can not help but admire the courage of Mr. Kenney in the
undertaking of such a project as a new town, as the town of Franklin located 3 miles to the north and east was already
in existence with three small stores, blacksmith shop, flour mill, saw mill, post office and school. Also three miles to
the north was another small town with stores, blacksmith shop and schools. The only thing Mr. Kenney had in his
favor was a railroad-but that proved to be enough. Kenney began to "grow like a weed" and in only a few years became
one of the best and most widely known small towns in the entire state. Moses Kenney did not live to see his dream
fulfilled as he died four years later in 1875.

Moses married Catherine STOGSDILL. Born about October 10, 1807 in Bourbon County, Kentucky. Catherine died
in Kenney, Dewitt County, Illinois on April 14, 1861; she was 53.

They had the following children:
                  i.      John Muir.
                 ii.      George M. Born about 1826.
                iii.      William. Born about 1828.
                iv.       Jefferson. Born about 1831.
                 v.       Elizabeth. Born about 1832.
      18        vi.       Susan M. (~1832-)

4. David KENNEY. Born on January 26, 1772 in Augusta County, Virginia. David died about 1804; he was 31.

Wife may have been Martha Rocke, married Feb. 15, 1793.

David Kenney, the eldest child of James and Mary Kenney, was born in Virginia. As James Kenney was appointed
administrator of his estate in 1804, he must have died about that time. In the November term of Bourbon Circuit Court,
1819, a suit in Chancery against the heirs of James Kenney names the defendants as John Kenney, James Kenney,
Sally Kenney, Moses Kenney and Elam Kenney, heirs of David Kenney, deceased. "It appears to the satisfaction of the
court that they are not inhabitants of this Commonwealth." From a correspondence between some of the Kenney
relatives in Illinois and John Kenney of Logan County, mentioned his brother Moses, it is thought that the widow of
David Kenney moved to that county with her family of infant children. (CLB) [1]

5. Elizabeth KENNEY. Born on October 10, 1773 in Virginia.

Elizabeth Kenney, [1] first daughter and second child of James and Mary Frame Kenney, was born in Virginia on
October 10th, 1773. She came to Kentucky with her parents and there she married James Trotter. They, with other
members of the family, moved to Illinois. She was devoted to her sisters, all of whom were tall and slender. She left
descendants who have scattered all over the country. (CLB)

7. Mary “Polly” KENNEY. Born on July 5, 1779 in Virginia.

Notes on Polly KENNEY: [1]
Polly was still living in 1841 because she named her new grandson, James Yarnell (second son of Dorcus) for her
father. That grandson could later remember her funeral. She died at the home of her youngest daughter, Mrs. Mary
Elizabeth Hildreth McDowel, and is buried near Indiana, Vermillion county, Illinois. (CLB)

9. Nancy KENNEY. Born on August 4, 1788.

Notes on Nancy Kenney: [1]
James Kenney would not give his consent to marriage of daughter, Nancy, to Jonas Rhodes, a soldier, and told her
never to see him again. She and Jonas arranged to meet under a certain tree by the road, some say "six months," some
say "one year" from the date of parting and, if at the end of that period, each felt the same devotion for the other, her
trousseau, placed in a bag or sheet, was to be hung by one in her confidence, in the branches of that tree so that Jonas,
riding under the boughs, would see or be brushed by the tree's unusual fruit. In that year, neither Nancy or Jonas saw
each other nor communicated with the other; but at the end of the year, the cloths made for her trousseau were hanging
in the tree as Jonas Rhodes rode under it. Nancy appeared, got up behind him on the horse and rode away and they
were married in the nearest town in Bath county, Kentucky, in 1809. Her father left her $300.00 in his will, but she got
little of that nor as much from the estate of her late husband Lt. Jonas Rhodes.

On October 17, 1809 when Nancy was 21, she first married Lt. Jonas RHODES, in Bath County, Kentucky. Born in
1786 in Tennessee. Jonas died in Hillsboro, Montgomery County, Illinois in 1817; he was 31.

[Scott County] [Georgetown City and Precinct]

The twelfth child of James Kenney was Joseph B. Kenney, the subject of our sketch, who was born Jan. 19, 1806. On
his father's farm he remained till [sic] he reached his majority, when, on March 8, 1827, he married Miss Lavinia
Lander, and with her removed to the adjoining county of Scott; purchasing about 360 acres in the Dry Run
neighborhood, where the Burchs, Burbridges and other influential families were living; to these acres he added others,
from time to time, till [six] he possessed 1400 acres, which were all under his personal successful management;
besides this land he owned a number of slaves, about forty of whom were set free by Lincoln's famous Proclamation.
Together with the special farming business, Mr. Kenney engaged largely in buying and selling hogs, and for about

twenty years he packed hogs with the Messers. S. Davis & Co., of Cincinnati. In 1858 Mr. Kenney gave up his home
in the country and the occupations, which for near half a century had interested him, to moved into Georgetown, in
order to co-operate with the Pastor of the Presbyterian Church and other in the establishment of a female Seminary in
that city; but this undertaking, by reason of circumstances beyond his control, was not permanently successful; the
Seminary, after doing some good work, ceased to be one of the institutions of the place; still Mr. Kenney remained in
town (where he now resides) identified with other public interests; he has been a Director of the Farmer's Bank, of
Kentucky, President of the Lexington & Covington Turnpike Company, Magistrate of the county, and Trustee of the
town, usefully and honorably discharging the duties belonging to these several positions. In no department of activity
has Mr. Kenney's life been more conspicuous than in that connected with the church; for fifty years he has been a
communicant in the Presbyterian Church; for over forty-five years he has held office in this church, and for many
years he has been an efficient Ruling Elder; his liberality to the cause, his fidelity to his church, his zeal for its welfare,
none, who knew Mr. Kenney could for one moment question; he is truly a pillar in the church; strong, even though the
weight of years is upon him. Mr. Kenney has had ten children, six of whom are now living; they have married into
other good families of the State, making the family connection a large one. James H. Kenney, the oldest son, married
Miss Elenor W. Graves; Margaret married B. C. Glass, Esq.; Sallie F. married Joseph Force, Esq.; Joseph F. married
Miss Mollie Thomas; Napoleon B. married Miss Lizzie Rankin; Charles V. married Miss Mollie Grissim; Alice
married Hon. S. M. Davis, and Victor M. married Miss Agnes Warren. Greatly blessed and a blessing, Mr. and Mrs.
Joseph B. Kenney are enjoying a green old age.

His father, James Kenney was a Virginian who settled, in 1781 on the banks of Stoner River, in Kentucky. He was
twice married; first to Miss Froome, (Frame) and afterwards to Margaret Johnson, be each of whom he had eight
children, Joseph B. was the fourth child by the second wife. His father was considered one of the finest farmers of his
day. He died when Joseph was but eight years old. The early education of Joseph B. Kenney was quite moderate, and
the early years of his life were passed on a farm. Upon the death of his father, the five sons inherited a large farm of
two thousand acres, which they divided among themselves. Joseph at once became an enterprising farmer and stock
breeder upon a large scale, raising sheep, cattle, hogs and mules. He drove his own cattle and hogs to market-first in
Virginia and the South, and finally to Cincinnati, Ohio. In 1820, he sold out in Bourbon County and moved to Scott
County, when he divided his property among his children and settled in Georgetown. He was a magistrate for sixteen
years, under the old Constitution. He also served for eight years after the adoption of the new constitution. He was for
sixteen years a director of the Lexington and Covington Turnpike Company, and for twenty-one years more, the
president of that corporation. He has been for ten years a trustee of the town in which he resides, and has always been
identified with the progressive enterprises of his neighborhood. He was the first man in his county who used the
following methods of sowing wheat; He sowed the wheat in a field which had grown corn the previous season, and
which had been left standing in the stalk, and the hogs, as they ate the standing corn trampled down the wheat into the
ground. This method has since been largely adopted. He has been a member of the Presbyterian church for forty
years, In March, 1827 he married Lavinia, daughter of Henry Lauder, a farmer of Bourbon county, who was
considered one of the neatest farmers of that vicinity. By this marriage he had ten children, nine of whom united with
the Presbyterian Church and grew up useful and honored members of society. Six of his children now survive:

David Leer Sr. built four identical homes on Jacksontown Pike for four of his sons. David Jr. had silver spoons made
from silver money with which to start housekeeping.

My grandfather David was an old man in my childhood and was delicate, but lived to be 83 years old. He was very
thin and had black hair and black eyes. He would only drink from a china cup and silver spoon. Was rather vain of his
long narrow hands and feet which have been inherited by me and my elder son along with his delicate constitution. He
could kill a hawk on the wing when he was 80. He could not only see well, but hear as well and I have heard my

21. Alvin Kenney HILDRETH. Born in 1804 in Bourbon County, Kentucky. Alvin Kenney died in Vermillion
County, Illinois on July 19, 1874; he was 70.

According to a biographical articles on his sons, Alvin K. Hildreth was born in Bourbon County, Kentucky and
"reared to farming pursuits, and grew up inured to labor and trained in habits of industry and economy. He possessed
all the hardihood and courage of the native Kentuckian, and was well fitted to enter upon the task before him, when
venturing into the wilds of a new country". In 1832 Alvin and his wife moved from Bourbon County, Kentucky to
Vermilion County, Illinois. They settled on a new tract of land on the little Vermilion, constructed a homestead, and
spent the remainder of their lives there.

The same biographical article says that he "landed in Vermilion County, Ill., with about $400, and at the time of his
death, left a large estate consisting of over 2,600 acres of choice land, nearly all in one body, and the most of it under

cultivation. Besides this he had a large amount of personal property. In his prosperity he generously acknowledged
that in his accumulations he was assisted largely by his faithful, sensible and capable wife, who was a lady of more
than ordinary intelligence, and in whose good judgment and womanly counsel he had the most implicit confidence. In
the days of their prosperty they uniformly remembered those less fortunate, and for the last twenty years of their active
lives, they practically kept an open house for the needy, none of whom were ever turned empty from their door.'

"Alvin K. Hildreth, while not a member of any religious organization, contributed
liberally of his means for the establishment and maintenance of churches. He believed in a future state, and in all his
dealings endeavored to follow the precepts of the Golden Rule, doing unto his neighbor as he would be done by."

Alvin Kenney married Sara A. RITTER. Born about 1826 in Bourbon County, Kentucky.

They had the following children:
                  i.      William H. Born in 1829 in Bourbon County, Kentucky.
                          He married Mary E. Horn, daughter of Dr. Abel Horn and Harriet Linton, in 1869. He died
                          after 1889.

                           According to a biographical sketch, he "was given the rudiments of a common-school
                           education in the district where he was reared, and was at an early age taught to make
                           himself useful about the new farm. [His] father was largely interested in stock-raising,
                           making a specialty of cattle and mules, and handling considerable numbers of horses,
                           sheep, and swine. William at an early age was entrusted with the purchase of live-stock, to
                           which business he seemed peculiarly adapted, and operated with excellent judgment. He
                           remained at home and worked with his father until a man of thirty-seven years, and at that
                           time had a good property of his own. Up to this period he had remained a bachelor, but in
                           1869 he was united in marriage with Miss Mary E. Horn...' 'Mr. and Mrs. Hildreth began
                           their wedded life together on the large farm which they now occupy and which comprises
                           760 acres of fertile land under a thorough state of cultivation, and all in one body. It is
                           entirely surrounded with a hedge fence, and the fields are divided with the same, making a
                           broad and beautiful picture in the landscape.

                           Mr. Hildreth has laid probably 6,000 rods of tiling, and thus thoroughly drained, the soil is
                           very productive. Forests and fruit trees serve to embellish the homestead, and a new
                           residence is now (July, 1889) in course of completion. This structure, when finished, will
                           be one of the finest of its kind in the township. There is a fine barn and all the other
                           buildings necessary for the shelter of stock and the storage of grain, while the most modern
                           machinery is used in tilling the soil.' For the past few years Mr. Hildreth has engaged
                           extensively as a dealer in live-stock, which has yielded him handsome returns. The land
                           which he received from his father's estate, was mostly in its primitive condition, and he has
                           made all the improvements which are upon it. Mr. Hildreth is religiously a firm believer in
                           the Spiritualistic philosophy, and has one of the largest libraries in the county. He is
                           thoroughly well informed on most of the great issues of the day, and has never sought or
                           held office, except some of the minor offices of his township. He is a Democrat. He is
                           recognized as one of the most public-spirited men of the county, and was largely
                           instrumental in securing the passage of the Chicago & Ohio River Railroad through this
                           section. There was at the time a bitter contest over this road, but the persistence of Mr.
                           Hildreth, resulted in its being built through its present location, instead of three miles west.
                           He gave $1,000 in money, and the right of way, besides weeks of hard labor.'
                           'Notwithstanding a man may have been subjected to the most careful and thorough training

                           in his youth, this is given in vain unless he has within him the elements of industry and
                           perseverance. Mr. Hildreth has displayed these qualities in an unusual degree, and it has
                           been noticeable all through his life since reaching years of discretion, that whatever he has
                           undertaken, has been followed up as long as there was a possibility of his attaining his
                           purpose. It is said that 'all things come to those who wait.' Mr. Hildreth has not been content
                           to wait alone, but has labored industriously in the meantime, and has perpetuated in a most
                           praiseworthy manner the honorable name of his father, and his own will be held in
                           remembrance years after his active mind and hand shall have ceased their labors."

                           married Sarah A. Cook circa 1877. He died after 1889.

                           John B. Hildreth spent his entire life in Carroll Township, Illinois, where he owned a
                           352-acre farm, with 90 acres in Vermilion County and 262 acres in Edgar County. An 1889
                           biographical article says of him, "The leading features in the character of Mr. Hildreth are
                           his strict attention to business, his promptness in meeting his obligations and his excellent
                           understanding of all branches of general agriculture. In person, he is a man who would
                           attract attention in a crowd, being of commanding presence, of portly figure and a
                           handsome and intelligent countenance. He numbers his friends by the score in this county
                           and welcomes beneath its hospitable roof its best people. He has a beautiful home where he
                           has effected modern improvements, including a commodious dwelling, handsomely and
                           conveniently arranged and second to none in this part of the county. His standing in society
                           is first-class and in his political affiliations he is in sympathy with the Democratic party."
                           He was a Farmer.

                           about 1866 when John B. was 23, he first married Philetta ROSS.
                           about 1873 when John B. was 30, he second married Elizabeth BARNETT.
                           about 1877 when John B. was 34, he third married Sarah COOK.

22. Angeline HILDRETH. Born on August 26, 1806 in Bourbon County, Kentucky. Angeline died in Tuscola,
Douglas County, Illinois on April 6, 1860; she was 53.

She married George Washington Howe, son of Dr. George Howe, on 26 Dec 1826 at Paris, Bourbon Co, Kentucky.
She married John Mallory, son of (--?--) Mallory, on 15 Aug 1842 at Vermilion Co, Illinois. She died on 6 Apr 1860
at Tuscola, Douglas Co, Illinois, at age 53.

In 1832 George and Angeline Howe moved with their children to Missouri and then to Illinois. In 1835 George Howe
joined an armed expedition sent against the Indians in the Black Hawk War. He disappeared near Galena, Illinois. His
body was never recovered, so his family presumed him to be dead or captured. Angeline took their three small children
and moved back to her father's home in Kentucky.

In the spring of 1838 Angeline returned to Illinois. She arrived in Grand Prairie, Vermilion County, Illinois where she
had relatives on 5/6 April 1838. The 1840 Census of Vermilion County shows John and Alvin Hildreth families,
presumably her brothers. At that time the area was pioneer country. She sent her children to subscription schools but
was very poor. In 1840 she was struggling to care for her children and was forced to apprentice her son William Howe
and an unnamed daughter to William J. West, a neighboring farmer.

In 1842 Angeline's first husband was pronounced legally dead and she remarried. Her new husband was living in
Champaign County at the time of the 1840 Census, and it is likely that they lived there from the time of their marriage.

In 1853 Angeline's son William Howe settled in Coles County (which became Douglas County in 1859), and in 1854

                                                        Page 21
                                               Register Report

her son James Howe settled there. Angeline probably moved to Douglas County about the same time, or after the
death of John Mallory. The Mortality Schedule for the 1860 Census of Douglas County says she was a widow and died
of lung fever. At the time of her death her children ranged in age from 11 to 30.

On December 26, 1826 when Angeline was 20, she first married George Washington HOWE, in Bourbon County,
Kentucky. Born in Bourbon County, Kentucky.

In 1832 George Howe and Angeline Mallory moved to Missouri, then to Illinois. George Howe disappeared,
presumed dead, 1835 in Illinois while on an expedition sent against the Indians in the Black Hawk War. Angeline
returned to Kentucky temporarily, then in 1838 moved back to Illinois. In 1842 George Howe was pronounced legally
dead and Angeline remarried. Angeline and her new husband must have left Douglas Co, Illinois some time after the
1850 Census but before the 1860 Census. She appears without him on the 1860 Census and there is other evidence that
the family did not live the whole time in Illinois, so I think he died elsewhere and returned to Illinois.

Those old Kentucky folks were often off fighting distant Indians! Information from Justin Howery 1/3/2000,

They had the following children:
                  i.      William. Born on November 23, 1829 in Bourbon County, Kentucky. William died in
                          Tuscola, Douglas County, Illinois on January 27, 1892; he was 62.
                          He was born on 23 Nov 1829 at Bourbon Co, Kentucky. He married Harriet Ann Lester,
                          daughter of Segler Harrison Lester and Parenthia Ann Cassaday, on 23 Nov 1853 at
                          Tuscola, Douglas Co, Illinois. He died on 27 Jan 1892 at Tuscola, Douglas Co, Illinois, at
                          age 62.

                          About 1839 William Howe was entered in a subscription school for 6 months in Vermilion
                          County, Illinois. In 1839 he and his sister were indentured to William J. West, a farmer in
                          Sargeant Township. In December 1839 the West family moved to Oakland, Coles County,
                          Illinois. They stayed there 1 year, then moved to Camargo until March 1843, when they
                          moved to Okaw. During the winter of 1846-47 the West family moved to Lake Fork and
                          stayed there until 1850. William Howe remained with the West family until the spring of
                          1849, receiving only room and board, and nine months of grade school education for his
                          labor. After his term of service expired he stayed on another year, working from month to

                          In March 1850 Howe joined West and nine others in a journey overland to California for
                          the Gold Rush. It had been a wet spring and their 11 yoke of oxen had much trouble at the
                          beginning of the journey. They travelled through Quincy, Illinois and across Missouri,
                          crossing the Missouri River at the southwest corner of Iowa, then across the plains and
                          through South Pass, north of Salt Lake City, and via the Oregon Trail to Soda Springs, then
                          to the St. Mary's River, which they followed to The Sink, and finally across the Sierra
                          Nevadas along the Carson Trail, finally arriving at Webberville on 27 August 1850.

                          On the entire journey they lost only one man, and that was to disease. They buried him
                          along the way. They remained in California for 9 months, doing 'teaming' and finding a
                          considerable amount of gold, which brought them approximately $5 to $80 per day. From
                          California Howe went to Oregon. Along with two other men he was robbed by Modoc
                          Indians of all his money and clothes, amounting to some $1,200. He arrived at the Yuba
                          River mines with nothing, but was able to pan gold amounting to $80 per day. He stayed
                          two weeks, but when high water came he returned to southern California and worked
                          teaming between Stockton and the gold mines. He stayed 18 months here and in February
                          1853 took a ship from San Francisco to Panama, overland across the Isthmus, then another
                          ship to New Orleans, and up the Mississippi River to his old home in Coles County,
                          Illinois. During his two years in California he became fluent in Spanish.

                           Back in Coles County he settled down to life as a farmer. The area of Coles County in
                           which he lived became Douglas County in 1859. William eventually acquired holdings
                           amounting to some 1,500 acres. He was an excellent marksman, his favorite sport being
                           hunting. He made yearly trips to Kansas, Colorado or Arkansas for the hunting. He served
                           two years as County Supervisor and as Collector and Assessor.

                 ii.       Daughter.
                iii.       James Hildreth. Born on June 1, 1832.
                           James Hildreth Howe grew up in Vermilion and Champaign Counties, Illinois and in his
                           youth travelled extensively. In 1854 he settled in Coles County, Illinois, in an area which
                           became Douglas County in 1859. Beginning with a farm of 80 acres he gradually added to
                           his holdings until he had 410 acres in Douglas County and a farm of 160 acres in Coffee
                           County, Kansas. In the late 1800's his livestock business was estimated to be worth as much
                           as $100,000 a year. In 1882 he was elected Justice of the Peace and Highway
                           Commissioner. His hobby was hunting and he claimed to have once killed two deer with
                           one shot in Kansas, and to have killed an antelope.

                           James Hildreth married Eliza Jane LESTER.

Angeline second married John MALLORY.

History of Bourbon, Scott, Harrison and Nicholas Counties, Kentucky, Ed. by William Henry Perrin, O. L. Baskin &
Co., Chicago, 1882. p. 753. [Nicholas County] [Carlisle City and Precinct]

Judge James Madison Kenney, retired farmer, P. O. Carlisle, was born near Paris, on the Stoner, April 5, 1810. His
father was James, born at same place. His mother was Edith Johnson, born upon the south branch of the Potomac, but
at a very early age came with her father Andrew and her mother, who was before marriage a Miss Gregg, and made
their settlement upon Green Creek. The parents of our subject had nine children all of whom grew to maturity: Mrs.
Alexander Robinson of Seymour, Ind., and James M., the only two now living. He received but about two weeks'
schooling on account of the death of his father, the duty of supporting a large family and widowed mother then falling
heavily upon him.

According to his statement "he got his education a-running." At twenty-five years of age he could not write his own
name, but by persistent energy to acquire a good education, being thus enabled to fill some of the most responsible
positions of the county in later years. He began life as a farmer in which he has continued, adding to his possessions
from year to year. Was twice married: in September 1833, to Mary Parish, who died May 4, 1848; was a daughter of
Nathaniel Parish; his second marriage occurred Feb. 8, 1849, to Harriet B. Dunnington, born in Charles County, Md.,
June 2, 1819, came to Nicholas County in 1838. Her father was James Dunnington, born in Charles County, Md.,
March 29, 1781, died May 31, 1852. Her mother was Sally Payne, born in Fairfax County, Va., March 18, 1786, died

Pioneers, W.R. Brink & Co., Philadelphia, 1882.

This country, the asylum for the oppressed of all land, has been greatly enriched by virtue of religious persecutions
throughout different parts of Europe. Perhaps none of these persecutions has contributed more of patriotic zeal in
proportion to the number who sought homes here, than that of the old Scotch Presbyterians, Driven from their
mountain-fastnesses, they first sought protection in Northern Ireland, and from thence cane thitherward. to this class
belong the ancestors of A. L. Barnett. when William Penn was directing the tide of emigration to his colony near
Philadelphia they joined the movement; thence went to Virginia. So that John Barnett, the father of the subject of this
sketch, was born in Augusta county, Virginia. His wife Sallie Kenney, was of the same stock with himself. About 1789
the Barnetts threaded their tedious way over the mountains to Kentucky, the "land of promise" in the eyes of the

pioneers, John riding behind his father on a pack-Horse. They located in bourbon County, where Alexander was born
October 15, 1910., being third in the family in order of birth. At p[resent there are but three living: Alexander, James
and Sarah; whilst Robert Franklin, Mary (who was killed by lightening), Juliet, Elizabeth and William have passed
away. Mr Barnett acquired a fair education when young, which has become rich in experience during his active life.
He came to DeWitt County in the year 1832. Was elected surveyor (the first in the county,) May 6, 1839, an office he
held continuously for twenty years and six months. then after a respite of almost equal time he was again elected in
1879, and now holds the position. Politically he has been during most of his life a Democrat, having cast his first ballot
for Martin Van Buren. In 1832 he lost his vote (a fact always regretted, as he was an admirer of Andrew Jackson),
because being on his way home from Kentucky to Illinois; but he had the honor of seeing a number of enthusiastic
Hoosiers drinking to 'Old Hickory's health. Of late years, he has identified himself with the Greenback Party. He
married to Elizabeth H. Hall, November 20, 1834, by whom he has had twelve children, five of whom died in infancy
- three of them being triplets and died quite young, - and there are now living six. His wife is a most estimable woman,
a member of the Christian Church, and quite an active laborer in the Master's cause. Mr. Barnett is possessed of a
strong, vigorous mind, excellent constitution and great determination of character. He is a man whom his neighbors
love to honor.

From DeWitt County History 1882

Alexander Barnett is the oldest pioneer citizen of Clintonia. He is a native of Bourbon county, Kentucky, and came to
the county in the fall of 1831. He first stopped in wbat was known as the Hall and Bowles settlement, Barnett
township. He remained there but a short time, when he returned to his native State. The next year, 1832, he came back
to this county, where he has remained a citizen ever since. In the fall of 1834, he entered the land for his present farm
in the extreme western part of Clintonia township. At that time Mr. Barnett, Josiah Clifton and Samuel Curtright were
the only citizens. In the same year Mr. Barnett married Miss Elizabeth Hall, and early the following spring they went
to house-keeping in a pole cabin previously built by Mr. Barnett on his premises
in Section 30. His cabin was euphoniously called the " House that Jack built," from the fact that a man by the name of
Jack Bruner superintended the construction of it. It was a rude affair, filled in with chinkings, but not daubed up with
mud as were some of the most aristocratic of those times. Soon after moving in a heavy snow storm prevailed, Mr.
Barnett was away from home, and when he returned be found his wife sitting, desolate and alone, in the middle of the
room, muffled up in a cloak, and the floor covered with snow. He made a rousing fire, swept out the snow, stuffed up
the cracks with rags the best he could, and for a time they were comparatively comfortable. The next morning. Mr.
Barnett was obliged to wade through several inches of snow before he could reach his clothes to dress. Many years
have passed, and Mr. Barnett is now one of the prominent farmers and representative citizens of DeWitt county. He
has been a very active man all his, life, and although gray haired, and somewhat bent with age, he is yet active and
capable of more endurance than many of the rising generation. He was elected the first surveyor after the county was
organized in 1839, served in the office for twenty successive years, and is now the present incumbent.

[Scott County] [Georgetown Precinct]

Beeri Christy Glass, Farmer and Capitalist, was born December 4, 1804, six
miles from Georgetown in Scott County, Kentucky, and died at his home in
Georgetown, June 20, 1874. His father, William Glass, was a native of
Pennsylvania, emigrated to Kentucky at an early day, and became one of the
most substantial and successful farmers of Scott County. Beeri C. Glass received a good education in the best schools
and academies then existing in his native county, and made his first step in life as a teacher; although he probably
taught school at intervals for several years, it does not appear that he had any design of pursuing that avocation as a
profession. January 20, 1846, he was appointed agent of the McCracken Fund. He resided on his father's farm until
1847, and was actively engaged with him in the various interests of the place. Under the old State Constitution, he was
several years Sheriff of Scott County, but had little desire for political position. In 1847 he removed to Georgetown,
where he continued to reside during his life. May 17, 1848, he was appointed one of the commissioners to lay out
Scott County into eight election precincts. November 19, 1849, he was appointed County Treasurer. He was one of
the founders of the Farmers' Bank of Georgetown and remained in its directory until his death. He had accumulated
considerable means, having been remarkably successful in everything he undertook with earnestness, before settling
in Georgetown, and mainly occupied his time for years in loaning and speculation on his capital. His name was
associated with all the important interests of his community. He contributed largely to the organization and building
of Georgetown College, and was one of its most active managing trustees, and was connected with the Board of
Trustees during his life. He was a leader in every movement of advantage to the town, and was one of its most active,
influential, and successful business men. In politics, he was always a Democrat; had strong convictions and adhered to
them at all hazard, but was courteous and deferential when any personal feeling of principal of individual honor was
involved. When the civil war broke out, he espoused the cause of the South, and, had his health and age permitted,
would have entered the army in defense of his principles. In 1852 he united with the Baptist Church and, until his
health and hearing failed, he was one of its most active and valuable members. On November 15, 1858, he resigned
both the agency of the McCracken Fund and the office of County Treasurer. He was one of the Trustees of
Georgetown for several years, and held various positions of trust in the community; lived an exemplary, active life,
was open hearted and charitable; started out in life a poor boy, and, by superior judgment, business ability, and
unyielding perseverance, succeeded, mainly unaided, in accumulating a fortune. He was a man of fine habits; of
strong, sympathetic nature; was strongly devoted to his family; was a man of fine sentiment and feeling, which he
displayed liberally in his home and in his personal friendships; and died universally regretted and respected, leaving
the world better by his having lived in it. Mr. Glass was married in 1847, to Miss Margaret A. Kenny, daughter of
Joseph B. Kenney, a prominent citizen of Georgetown, a lady of great personal and social worth, who still survives
him. Their only child, Victor Kenney Glass, married Miss Bettie Force, of Georgetown and resides in that place.

They had one child:
      56         i.        Victor Kenney (1848-)

On August 3, 1883 when Margaret Ann was 55, she second married Rev. J. H. MARTIN.

family to Missouri, settling in Cass County, where he lived the rest of his life. His wife, Izorah Hurst (Kenney), was
born in Fleming County, Kentucky (?) see note on last page of Davis/Hurst record. Victor M. Kenney and his wife
Izorah are buried in the Garden City Mo. cemetery.

It was reported by granddaughter Elvorene Kenney Phillips to be a stocky man who always stood up very straight and
was somewhat stern.

Marriage date of Feb. 25, 1875

On February 23, 1875 when Victor Marrue was 23, he married Izorah HURST, daughter of Charles HURST & Mary
DAVIS, in Nicholas County, Kentucky. Born on June 4, 1857 in Fleming County, Kentucky. [6] Izorah died on March
3, 1901; she was 43.

Notes for IZORAH HURST: [6]
Izorah's name may have been Izorale. There is a birth date of Jan. 4, 1857, Rowan County, KY, d. March 3, 1901.

Izorah Hurst Kenney moved with her family to Cass Co., MO. in 1895. There is some question as to where she was

Izorah had a birthmark in one eye. The story goes that it was caused by a man on the train on their return trip to KY,
watching Mrs. Hurst very closely. This man had something wrong with his eye.

Evaline Hurst (Adams) recalls that she once asked her mother where she got her sister's name, Izorah. She said that
her mother said she was named in honor of the nurse who cared for her when her sister was born, in the "west."
(Bloomington, IL)

Edward Kenney says his mother was born in Flemming Co, KY. and gives his reasons as follows:
He recollects that the move to Illinois was always spoken of as about two years duration. The record of McLean, IL
shows that purchase of land by Charles H. Hurst was recorded on March 28, 1855, Edward assumed that they would
have arrived there prior to recording the deed.

Izorah Hurst was born June 4, 1857. This was more than two years after the recording of the deed and they would
probably not have traveled immediately after the child's birth. Charles Hurst was a farmer and if he had not returned
until some time after June 4, would have lost out one season in farming.

Another incident of which Edward Kenney's grandfather, Charles H. Hurst told him is that his wife and the baby,
Izorah, had to be rolled up in their bedding and taken out in a boat to higher ground on account of the creek near which
they lived getting out of banks and spreading over the bottom land. This was when Izorah was just a few days old.
This incident happened in Flemming Co., KY.

                          This information is from Amy Buckley,

                         "Leer" was the son of B.F. Buckley Sr. and Corday Leer Buckley.
                         His brother was my, (Amy Buckley) great-grandfather, B.F. Buckley Jr.

                         Education: Henry Clay High School, Transylvania University, Lexington,
                         Kentucky, then Yale Law. When he was at Henry Clay High School he received the Yale
                         Cup (scholarship).

                         When Leer returned from Yale, he served on the KY State Legislature. And
                         then the KY State Senate. He was defeated for the Republican nomination for
                         governor by Eldon S. Dummit (who was his nephew's father-in-law! Leer's nephew, B.F.
                         Buckley III married Rosemary Dummit). Their law practices were both in the same
                         building - Security Trust Co. (Short and Mill - which B.F. Buckley III and B.F. Buckley IV
                         - my grandfather, Ben and father, Biff, are now looking to buy) and were buddies. Leer
                         was a lawyer for Lexington for a while too.

                         Leer never had any children, but he was married for about 30 years to Amelia
                         King. Her father was a banker in a town in KY, maybe Corinth? She and Leer
                         married young. They lived in Bell Court in Lexington in a duplex on the second
                         floor. They used to have Ben (B. F. Buckley III) over for dinner. He remembers
                         her as a very tall, thin, articulate individual.

                         She and Corday were very close. They lived within a few blocks of each other and were
                         considered to have a lot in common.

                         Corday gave Leer an earring of about 2 carats which he had it made into an
                         engagement ring and presented to Amelia upon their engagement. Then,
                         about 15 years ago, Amelia King Leer called Ben up and said that she wanted to give him
                         her ring (this was, of course, long after the divorce). So she came by
                         his office and gave him the ring. Ben asked her if she realized the value of
                         the ring. She said yes, but it came from your grandmother, and as Leer and I
                         are divorced, with no kids I want you as Corday's grandson to have it. So Ben
                         gave it to Elizabeth Ann Buckley (his youngest daughter), because the two older
                         daughters each had diamond rings from Beaulah Mae Saunders Buckley. Ben
                         took Elizabeth over to meet and thank Amelia, who passed away a few years after that.

                         On April 20, 1933 when Monroe Leer was 28, he married Amelia Pickrell KING, in Miami
                         Beach, Florida.

                         Amelia King Buckley was a long time librarian at Keeneland Library. Ben
                         believes Amelia and Leer divorced around '53. They lived on Dudley Ave.
                         after their move from Bell Court.

HISTORY OF KENTUCKY AND KENTUCKIANS, E. Polk Johnson, three volumes, Lewis Publishing Co., New
York & Chicago, 1912. Common version, Vol. III, pp. 1184-86. [Full page photograph of Mr. Dodge included with
bio.] [Bourbon County]

James L. Dodge - On the old homestead estate which was the place of his nativity and which is eligibly located about
three miles east of Paris, Bourbon county, Mr. Dodge is found as one of the representative agriculturists and
stock-growers of his native county, where, both as a loyal and progressive citizen and as a reliable and substantial
business man, he is well upholding the prestige of a name that has been identified with the annals of Kentucky history
for four generations.

On his present fine homestead James L. Dodge was ushered into the world on the 17th of May, 1869, and is a son of
David M. and Rebecca J. (Kenny) Dodge, both of whom were likewise natives of this county where the former was
born on the 1st of August, 1832, and the latter on the 24th of August, 1835. David M. Dodge was a son of Edwin M.
and Elizabeth (Seamands) Dodge, natives respectively of Clark and Bourbon counties, this state. Edwin M. Dodge,
was a son of David and Dorcas (Mills) Dodge, the former of whom was the founder of the family in Kentucky, whence
he came from Pennsylvania in the pioneer days and established his home in Clark County, where he continued to be
engaged in agricultural pursuits until his death. The ancestors of David Dodge are as follows: His father was Isaac,
son of Eli, son of Josiah, son of Josiah, son of John, son of Richard, who was the founder of the Dodge family in
America. He appeared in Salem, Massachusetts in 1638. He reared a large family of children and many of his
descendants are now to be found in various parts of the old Blue Grass commonwealth, as well as in other sections of
the Union. Mrs. Elizabeth (Seamands) Dodge, paternal grandmother of James L. Dodge of this review, was a daughter
of Manson Seamands, who served as major of a Kentucky regiment in the war of 1812 and who died in 1856; the
maiden name of his wife was Newton.

Edwin M. Dodge was born in Clark county, Kentucky, about the year 1811 and was there reared to maturity under the
conditions and influences of the pioneer epoch. As a young man he removed to Bourbon county and located in North
Middletown precinct, where was solemnized his marriage to Miss Elizabeth Seamands. There he continued his
identification with farming and stock-growing until his death, which occurred about the year 1836, and his widow
subsequently became the wife of Kinzea Stone. They continued to reside in Bourbon county until their death.

David M. Dodge remained with his mother and stepfather until he had attained to the age of twenty years, and in the
meanwhile he duly availed himself of the advantages of the common schools of the locality and period, the while he
contributed his quota to the work and management of the home farm. In February, 1852, was solemnized his marriage
to Miss Adeline Fretwell, daughter of Pascal and Maria (Hildreth) Fretwell, both of whom were representatives of old
Virginia families. Mr. Adeline Dodge died in 1860, and of her four children Bettie is now the only one living; she is
the widow of William Wood and resides in the city of Indianapolis, Indiana.

The three deceased children were Mary D., Edwin M. and William P. On the 22d of May, 1861, David M. Dodge
contracted a second marriage, having then been united in the bonds of wedlock to Miss Rebecca J. Kenney, daughter
of Victor M. and Catherine A. (Rogers) Kenney, both of whom were born and reared in Bourbon county. Victor M.
Kenney was a son of James Kenney, who was born in Virginia, where he was reared to adult age and whence he came
when a young man to Kentucky, numbering himself among the pioneers of Bourbon county. His first wife, the mother
of Victor M., born the maiden name of Margaret Johnson, and after her death he contracted a second marriage. Mrs.
Catherine A. (Rogers) Kenny was a daughter of Thomas and Rebecca (Spahr) Rogers, who were numbered among the

In 1856 David M. Dodge established his home on the farm now owned by his son James L., of this sketch, and as
before stated, the place is located about three miles east of the thriving little city of Paris, on the Paris and North
Middletown turnpike. He here gave the best of his splendid energies to the development and improvement of his
property, and the tangible results of his efforts remain patent to all. He was a man of impregnable integrity in all the
relations of life, was endowed with strong mentality and good judgment, and he was numbered among the best known
and most highly esteemed citizens of his native county, where his death occurred, on his old homestead, on the 10th of
April, 1903. He was a stanch Democrat in his political proclivities and his religious faith was that of the Presbyterian
church. He did not hedge himself in with more personal aggrandizement but was liberal and progressive in his civic
attitude. His second wife, Mrs. Rebecca J. (Kenney) Dodge, who survives him and remains on the old homestead,
bore him four children, concerning whom the following brief record is entered: Martha V. is the wife of Charles G.
Blakely, of Topeka, Kansas; David M. died when about 34 years of age; James L., is the immediate subject of this
review; and Victor K. is an interested principal of the Phoenix Motor Car Company, of Lexington, this state, where he
maintains his residence.

James L. Dodge was reared to maturity on the old homestead which is his present place of abode and which was
likewise that of his nativity, and after availing himself of the advantages of the district school he continued his higher
academic studies in the Garth Institute, at Paris, this county. He has never severed his allegiance to the great
productive industry under whose influences he was reared and he is now the owner of the old homestead, to which he
has added until his landed estate comprises 803 acres. The spacious residence and other buildings on the place are of
the best type and this is recognized as one of the many fine farms that have given Bourbon county such distinctive
prestige. As a young man Mr. Dodge began to devote special attention to the breeding and training of fine trotting
and pacing horses, in which connection he gained precedence as one of the leading horsemen in the section which has
ever represented his home. He still continues to own and handle a few high-grade horses and has never abated his love
for the horse, but since the death of his father he has confined his energies more especially to diversified agriculture
and to the raising of high-grade live stock, besides which he deals somewhat extensively in the same, making large
shipments each years.

He is one of the progressive and wide awake citizens of Bourbon county, ever ready to give his influence and aid in
support of measures and enterprises advanced for the general good of the community, and while he has had naught of
aspiration for public office he is found aligned as a stanch supporter of the cause of the Democratic party, in whose
faith he was reared. He is a member of the Presbyterian church.

On the 10th of December 1890, was solemnized the marriage of Mr. Dodge to Miss Lucy H. Williams, who was born
in Harrison county, Kentucky, on the 20th of September, 1869, and who was a daughter of John J. and Elizabeth
(Stone) Williams. Of this union were born two children, one of whom died in infancy; the surviving child, Edgar W.,
was born on the 25th of November 1893. Mrs. Dodge was summoned to the life eternal on the 17th of July, 1905,
secure in the affectionate regard of all who had come within the sphere of her gracious influence.

On December 10, 1890 when James L. was 23, he first married Lucy H. WILLIAMS, daughter of John J. WILLIAMS
& Elizabeth STONE, in Harrison County, Kentucky. Lucy H. died on July 17, 1905.

On December 23, 1914 when James L. was 47, he second married Mary Mitchell WOODFORD, daughter of
Benjamin WOODFORD (1856-1940) & Alice BROOKS (1858-1925). Born on February 9, 1886. Mary Mitchell died
on August 5, 1957; she was 71.

They had one child:
      63         i.        Alice Brooks (1916-)

Kansas and Kansans, Volume 3
On October 30, 1894, Mr. Blakely married Miss Mattie Victor Kenney Dodge, of Paris, Bourbon County, Kentucky,
and a daughter of David M. and Rebecca (Kenney) Dodge. She is of an old southern family on both sides. Her father
was a successful planter and a lover and breeder of standard bred trotting horses. Among horses he raised and owned
