Author: jacassidy22 Surnames: Cane, Demaree, Rucker, Hawkins Hill Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.cane/96/mb.ashx Message Board Post: I am looking for the descendants of Thomas Pierce Demaree born a slave of Samuel Demaree in Henry County Kentucky in 1853, he lived with the family of Samuel's children Samuel, Betsey, and John Milton. When Pierce was a teenager he was shot in the arm by the KKK and it had to be removed. He had a son Jesse born in 1888, perhaps Kitt, another Demaree slave and secondly he married Phoebe Rucker around 1901, married by John Milton Demaree. Pierce, as he was known and his son Jesse, were living with his sister Sarah Agnes Hawkins and her husband Bob in 1900 in Christiansburg, Shelby County, KY but they later moved to Frankfort where they lived on East Third Street. He was a janitor, probably at First Corenthians on Murray Street and also worked at the Captial. Pierce died in 1960. Jesse was the father of Katherine Demaree Cane. I am writing a manuscript called the History of the Low Dutch Slaves, and I would love to discover the date of Pierces date, the location and where he is buried. Both the African American Demarees and the white Demaree families remained in contact with one another during Pierce's life time. So if anyone can help me, I would appreciate hearing from you. I would also like the birth and death information for Jesse, his wife Catherine and their children. If children Robert Demaree and Abbie Hill of Tuscon, AZ are still living I would like to email them. I am more than happy to share what I have gathered with family members and will be happy to credit your submissions if I can use them in this document.
