Subject: Kirby King

Hello my name is Kirby Johnson, I am a descendent of Kirby King born 1750-1760. this is the father of burrell king. I have a photo copy of a letter out of John Fleming King's bible, given to my family though (Pearl Lowry) whom is  the daughter of Cass Andrew King. Cass's father was John Fleming King born 1845 in tenn,(Rhoda King Legeres son).

Thomas Murray King was my gggggreatgrand father his father was Kirby King. I am writing to see if you have any information on Edward King, the father of Kirby King. Does this sound like part of your family? Kirby Johnson

  Hi, Julie I have information on Uroth/Urith Murray that goes back to 1605 Scotland I will copy and send along with the two pages out of john Fleming kings bible. wish I could just scan and send but I dont have a scanner..... I dont know any thing about burrell or George Washington. most of my information is on Thomas Murray king. with so many members of this family having the same names research is hard to do must of our research was done by a Joan noble out of Ohio, she did a good job but some things in it just dont add up.

Subject: Burwell King

Hi Julie, My name is Connie, and I believe I am related to you through Burrell (Burwell) King's brother, Thomas Murray King. I am going to be out of town for a couple of days, but wanted to touch base with you first. My Thomas Murray King was b. 1790, d. 1880, McCreary, KY. I believe I have info that states that Burrell is the oldest of at least 5 children, parents are William Kirby King m. Uroth Murray. I have info on the Murray line also. This Murray line however is not the same family line that descends from Pocahontas. There is another King/Murray line that goes back to Pocahontas, but this is not the same line. I will get back in touch with you on dates and names when I return. Continued success on your web site. Connie Kyger

Hi! Anyone see KING name that is a link to my William KING line? Thanks!


William King born July 10, 1779 in Delaware or Virginia ?? died Sept 27, 1865 in Claiborne County, Tennessee. My William King married Sarah (Hammer) Garner in Carter County, TN on August 19, 1803. She was born August 24, 1781 - but we are not sure where - possibly Virginia or North Carolina. The name - Hammer shows up on some records, as does the name McClellan. Sarah died March 30, 1862.

***William and Sarah Garner King are both buried in Coleman Cemetery, Claiborne County, Tennessee, one-half mile west of the Hancock County line. I have cousins living in the area who have visited the site. We do know our Kings are said to have come to the New World (Virginia) in the early 1600's - possibly in the Second Virginia Charter or later -1620's to 1640's. We have always been told there were two King brothers who came to Virginia because they could not pay their debts in Scotland or England. They worked for 7 years to pay off their debts and married Indian women. Would love to find history of William & Sarah to go further back.

William and Sarah had 11 children

1. Elias KING  b. June 9, 1806 Virginia d. Sept 1867 Whitt Cemetery,Carter County, Kentucky. m. Isabella HORTON

2. Rosa Ozina W.(Rosie) KING b. Oct 16, 1810 West Virginia. d. Aug 30, 1888 Claiborne Ct, TN m. (1st) _________ CARRINGER (2nd) Rev. Nathan HOBBS

3. Elcana David KING b. 1814  d. _____? Union County, TN m. Mary FLANERY or FLANARY

4. Hiram C. KING b. 1815 or 1816 Virginia d. 1871  m. (1st) Elizabeth NEIL (NEAL) (2nd) Emily BALES

5. Jennie Margaret KING b. June 13, 1818 Claiborne Ct, TN d. June 14, 1898 _______________?  m. Robert RITCHIE

6. David A. KING b. about 1820 Virginia d. about 1873 __________ m. Susan FLETCHER  David was a Presbyterian Preacher - he was known as Reverend David King. He married Suzanne FLETCHER about 1847. (They are my Grt-Grt Grandparents. I have records on most of the family - but not all.)

7. Elihu E. King b. Dec 22, 1824 _______________? d. Jan 30, 1898 Tazewell, TN m. (1st) Elizabeth BUIS (2nd) SusanHUNTER Elihu is buried in the King Family Cemetery, Cedar Fork, Tennessee.

8. Emillie (Emilie) Amy KING b. Nov 10, 1826 _____? d. June 27, 1904 b. King Family Cemetery (next to Elihu) m. ________ BOWMAN or BORMAN

9. Lucinda KING b. abt 1828 m. Thomas MOORE

Below are some queries and emails that I have received from various Pennington Family Researchers, please read them and see if you can make a connection or answer their questions!!!

1- From: Kathy Mitchell

Subject: Pennington's

 Julie this is Kathy Mitchell from GenForum, I had listed my greatgrandmother Kitty Priscilla Pennington. The reason why I'm writing now is because I have gone for months and months with no one answering my letter. And I just happened to go through the Penningtons name today and I had seen your response to my letter. I seen you had some information, could you still look for me? I'm unable to find anything out on her and her husband. I don't know where she was born or anything. I appreciate all your help, truly I do. If you need anything else please let me know. If you using my husbands screen name becuase everytime I get under mine I have kinfolks or other very strange people im'ing me and I can't get any work done so, if you could e-mail me at Thanks Julie. Sincerely Kathy Mitchell

2- From: Mallie Pennington

Subject: Pennington Family

Hi my name is Mallie Arelle Pennington an I live in Goldsboro,N.C. My grandfather also had the same name as I. Haven't had much luck finding out anything on this family.

3- From: Bill Whittymore

Subject: Pennington/Whittymore Family Lines

I have been doing some research on my family, Whittamore's.  Dan Whittymore was my gggrandfather's brother.  You probably already know this, but Dan and Dora are buried in the Mt. Olivet Church of Christ cemetery at Sexton Creek in Clay County on KY577, about 3 miles east of US421.  I remember also that there were several Pennington's buried in that cemetery.  Good Luck.Bill

Correction.  Dan was probably the son of Daniel Whittymore or one of the other brothers of my gggrandfather.  The elder Dan was born in about 1850.  Dan, Dora's husband, was born Oct. 12, 1890, d. May 14, 1982.  Dora was b. May 22, 1892, d. 1956. Bill Whittamore

Bill, Thanks for the information and for writing to me!!! I think your gggrandfather's brother or however he is related to you, (Dan) was married to my ggandfather's (Daniel Pennington) sister (Dora). Do you happen to know the names of any of Dan & Dora's children?? I have just started researching my father's family lines, any information you have on the Pennington and their related families would be greatly appreciated!!! Alot of my dad's relatives (from both sides) live in Clay/Jackson counties KY. I have been to the Mt. Olive Cemetery many times, every Memorial Day Weekend my dad go's there to decorate his parents graves, he hasn't missed a year since his mother died in 1955. Which website did you visit to find me and the names I am researching?? I would like to know so that I can return to it to post more information/questions since it worked well enough to receive an email from you!!! What are some of the surnames you are researching, maybe I can help you out. Julie Pennington-Phillips
