  1. Thanks for the info on Martha J. Fogle, wife of Isaac Blakey. Like Thomas Blakey, Martha’s father, Wm McKelvey Hammett Fogle, was a saddler. Wm possibly apprenticed with older brother Robert Hammett Fogle, my 3rd gr grandfather who was a saddler in his younger years and one of the founders of Lebanon, KY.

  2. James Henry and Sarah Williams’ first born was my great-grandfather McHenry Williams (1869 – 1943). He was born in Campbellsville and went by “Mack” his whole life. He died before I was born, but I remember my great-grandmother, “Ma Williams”. who born Sarah Romine (1870-1953) in Taylor County to John Romine (1827-1903) and Apolona Vires (1932-1885).
