Ida Shelby 2/10/1902 died 9/1980 married Roland Caley Mary Caley married James Brundige Robert Brundige married Diane (me)

Robert Emmitt born 1888 Joseph Shelby 2/19/1885 - 1896 William Leander 6/11/1886 - 6/4/1904 Mary Lucille 4/8/1890 - 8/13/1912 George Edgar 4/21/1893 - 12/6/1896 Helen 10/8/1897 - 6/18/1979 Katherine 1/2/1906 - 6/13/1990 Sterling Eugene 5/13/1909 - 4/6/1974

This side of the family is descended from Evan Shelby, who fought in the Rev. war, and one of his sons was the first governor of Kentucky. Some of the infants who died are buried in the Shelby cemetery.

Linda was checking to confirm Anne was Daniels daughter, but I haven't heard from her for a while. Diane

Hi! My name is Diane and I am new to the list. I am looking for information on Mary Augusta Hicks and her parents, Lee Hicks and Ann Slayton. Mary was born in 1864 in Henderson County, Kentucky, and died in 1947, in Paducah, KY Lee was born in Henderson County, but I don't know when. I have no information on Ann. If these Hicks sound familiar to anyone, please let me know. Thank you.

I have not been searching very long, so I'm afraid to get too excited about a possible match. I don't want to be wrong. I checked the microfilm on the Hicks/Slayton marriage, and the Slaton you mentioned in the book is spelled Slayton in the register. This makes it more believeable for me that this is my Slayton, because she does have the Y in her name.

I have a hard time getting out to do research. Most often, I must rely on the internet. What I have found out from my mother-in-law, Marys granddaughter, Anne died while Mary was a child. ( I noticed Anne was not in the 1880 census). Mary was sent to a convent to be raised by the nuns. We do not know if she had any brothers.

I don't know if this helps you or not. If you find out that Mallie is Mary (it could be a nickname) let me know. If we have a match, I'll send you my info. I live in Kentucky and my mother-in-law is coming to do research with me in about 3 weeks. If you don't live here, I'll be glad to search for you when I go, even if they aren't the same Hicks.
