    1. ([KYSHELBY])Memorial Day
    2. Richard Berkheiser
    3. Hi everyone! Sorry to start another thread of messages so close to a Surname Shout Out but with the lists being down the first part of the year it threw my scheduling off. Hope you don't mind... With this being the Memorial Day Weekend, I thought it would it be interesting to post one ancestor we have in our family trees who served in one of the many wars and battles we fought in US History. Obviously it has to be an ancestor from this county. :) Give a brief biography of that person including the unit and war he or she was in, a POW, injuries, plus the usual genealogical stuff. Thanks in advance and have a safe weekend! Rick B Admin

    1. ([KYSHELBY])Surname Shout Out
    2. Richard Berkheiser
    3. Hi everyone! Just letting you know that the lists are back up and running again so to "celebrate" our return I'm initiating a first ever Surname Shout Out. A Surname Shout Out works like a Roll Call where we all post an ancestor we're totally stumped on. Happy Hunting! Rick B Admin

    1. [KYSHELBY] William F. Rice, Peter Franklin Rice,
    2. Douglas Smith
    3. I am hoping to find some deed records, etc. regarding William F. Rice who married Julian Fallis 1820 in Henry County, Kentucky. He was born 1798, probably in Virginia. We have two new DNA matches to our Group 9 Rice family via FTDNA.com who are part of the Deacon Edmund Rice DNA study.   Here is a breakdown of what we have:   We have a definite DNA connection and paper trail to Francis Rice (c.1711 - c.1770) of Prince Edward County, Virginia and wife Sarah (Womack) Rice on ALL testees except for TWO. Those two both are connected to Shelby County, Kentucky.   The first is William F. Rice born about 1798 who married Julian Fallis in Henry County, KY in 1820. The second one is Peter Franklin Rice, born 1825 in Shelby County, KY who moved to Putnam County, Indiana by 1850 or 1860.   They are exact matches to our Francis Rice family.   Now, there are OTHER Rices there from Prince Edward County: Charles Rice, Rowlette Rice, Anderson Rice, and I think maybe also Jesse Rice. They're part of the MATTHEW RICE family, also from Prince Edward County, Virginia. They are Group 4 DNA, off Thomas and Marcy Rice of Hanover/New Kent/Louisa counties, VA.   The JACOB RICE family is part of The DNA group 3, and are of the Robert Rice/Royce family from Connecticut.   So I am focusing on the William F. Rice family, in hopes of seeing how he ties in to our Francis Rice in Prince Edward County, Virginia. It is possible he is off a brother to old Francis whom we have previously been unaware of.   Any help would be greatly appreciated!   Thank you,   Willie Smith Manchester, TN

    1. [KYSHELBY] MILLS family
    2. Merri Vinton
    3. I am interested in learning more about any MILLS family who may have been in the county ca. 1810-1820 and perhaps later. I have two siblings, Elizabeth Ann & Amazon Mills, (presumed to be children of a John Mills), who listed their places of birth in Shelby County, KY in 1815 & 1817. By 1820 John MIlls was in Charlestown, Clark County, IN, but he may have left family in KY. Any clues appreciated. Thanks. Merri

    1. Re: [KYSHELBY] KYSHELBY --PORTER PHILIP 1754-1831
    2. MY cousins and I are looking for PHILIP PORTER born 1754 in Alexandria, VA Fairfax Co. Died 1831 in Taylorsville, KY Spencer Co. I do not think he moved but the county name changed from Shelby to Spencer Co.KY PHILIP PORTER married NANCY ANN BRENT B. 1766 Frederick Co. VA D 1766 daughter of Charles Innes Brent and Anna Gunnell. PHILIP AND NANCY ANN PORTER moved from VA to Taylorsville, KY about 1810 Philip was on the 1810 VA Census but their last daughter MARY ANN PORTER was born in KY, Shelby Co 1810. I am looking for any information on PHILIP PORTER regarding his paents names and or siblings. Also PHILIP PORTER AND NANCY ANN BRENT had a son, JOHN G. PORTER. 1804-1876. Some sources says his middle name was GUNN after a JOHN GUNN BRENT and other sources says his middle name is GUNNELL, his materneral grandmothers maiden name. JOHN G. PORTER married CATHERINE T. CARRICO. She is buried at St. Benedict Cemetery, Taylorsville,KY and her tombstone reads CATHERINE T CARRICO WIFE OF GEN. JOHN G.PORTER. She was Catholic and he was not, so he is not buried there. PHILIP AND NANCY ANN PORTER first son was JAMES PORTER 1787-1865 who married NANCY MASON 1792-1869 who lived in Bloomfield,KY and were buried at Maple Mount Cem. Bloomfield,KY. Prior to his death, they owned the Farm on Highway 162 which is presently is the Allen Farm. I cannot find where PHLIP PORTER AND WIFE NANCY ANN (BRENT) AND son JOHN G. PORTER are buried. FYI- NANCY ANN (BRENT)PORTER had a sister FRANCES BRENT who married JOHN DONALDSON CONNELLY, REV, WAR SOLDIER. They also moved to KY and settled in BLOOMFIELD,KY, Nelson Co, not far from Taylorsville, KY. Does anyone have any connections to these families that could shed some light on PHILIP PORTER and his parents or where he and his wife were buried?. I also know that PHILIP AND NANCY ANN PORTER, had the following connections: The FOX AND HURST Family in Bloomfield,KY. The Hurst family were cousins to NANCY ANN BRENT PORTER. Any help would be appreciated. My cousins and I continually search to try to find any information re PHILIP PORTERS parents, where he died and was buried, and more info on GENERAL JOHN G. PORTER, his son. Thanks in advance for your help.
