  1. The McCarty’s of Washington & Marion Cos. is my Maternal Ancestry line. Thomas was my 3rd Gt. Uncle, his brother Joseph being my 3rd. Gt. Grandfather. They were the sons of Justin & Mary McCarty. There are many unknowns & incorrect information as to actually what happened to Thomas & Polly.
    Would love to find the truth as to what happened to them.
    Thomas McCarty married Polly Inman

    18 Dec 1823

    • Judy, I have checked a few sources for your McCarty’s. In The Pioneer History of Washington County, Kentucky, which is a collection of newspaper articles and other writings, it lists:

      Justin McCarty, born 1757; enlisted for one year and nine months in 1776 in the State of Pennsylvania and continued in the service until 1781; discharged at Falls Point, Baltimore; in Battle of Long Island and Brandy. Keeps a little A.B.C. School in Washington County, Kentucky, in 1820; has wife and 9 children, 3 of whom are married.

      Also found Thomas McCarty married Polly Inman December 18, 1823. Joseph McCarty married Maria Mercer March 4, 1824.

      No McCarty’s listed in the 1850 census.

      There is a Patrick McCarty inventory 15 Dec 1869 24 Jan 1870 and adm/settlement 19 Jan 1870 – 28 Feb 1870.

      I hope this helps!

  2. I have been to Washington & Marion Cos., many times I think I have copied everything on the family that has been printed and on records there. The McCarty’s or at least after Marion Co was formed, are documented in Marion Co. 1850 & after…I have found most collateral families, Sparrow, Webb, Mercer, Milburn, Inman, Goode, Dorsey, Cape, Hays [Hayse], Jarbo[e], Kelly,Devine, Kinnett, Myers, Neighbors, Nelson, Orr, Pullman, Purdom, Seamster, Simpson, Turpin, Thorp [e], Walls, and many etc., that Justin McCary’s children married into… Just have alot of loose ends. From my research, I have a general idea of where Justin McCarty’s “plantation’ was, and know that a partial list of what I believe is the families burial grounds are, but changed name over the years to the Old Hourigan Cemetery is. I’ve came to the conclusion this is actually Justin’s families burial grounds, because all the documented burials are Justins children, spouses and his grandchildren. I only hope to be able to find it on my next visit there!!! I believe it is in the area of Lick Run Rd. Hopefully, someone will see this and help me out, I’ve been searching for almost 15 years for this known burial ground! Joseph McCarty & his 2nd. wife Theresa Tharp [Thorp] is my line. Theresa was married 4 times, Joseph being her 2nd. husband, her last husband was John Devine. In the Lebanon Interprise Newspaper, her obituary states she lived to be 107 years old! I’m amazed and proud of everything my Gt.Gt.Gt. Grandmother seen, did, and survived in her life!

    • Judy, I have my Kentucky Counties Map for Marion County in front of me. I have located Lick Run Road in the northeast corner of the county. From Hwy 68 you turn on Hourigan’s Lane, a left on Poplar Corner Road and a right onto Lick Run Road. This map shows all the cemeteries of the county, even the small family cemeteries. The two closest are Pleasant Run Church and Mayes Chapel. I see no cemetery without a small church with it. In the area is also St. Bruno’s Church Cemetery – the church no longer stands, but the cemetery is still there – I’ve been there and taken photos. Was your family Catholic? How did you find information about the Old Hourigan Cemetery? Does it say exactly where it is?
