Linda C Jesse Payton Parkey This is a brief but true story of the life of Jesse Payton Parkey written by his son Millard Huston Parkey. Jesse Payton Parkey was born January 27, 1878 at Whetstone near Snell Post Office and died February 8, 1920. He married Mary Alice Sears in 1897 at Poplarville, Kentucky. Mary Alice Sears was born March 6, 1883 and died April 28, 1965. To this union four children were born as follows: 1. Rev. Ollie Alford Parkey, Somerset, Kentucky, born 1900. 2. Millard Huston Parkey, Route #6, Box #406, Somerset, Kentucky, born 1902. 3. Ethel May Parkey Daniel, Monticello, Kentucky, born 1906. 4. Hattie Lizzie Parkey Randall,Indianapolis, Indiana, born 1908. Jesse Payton Parkey was called "Pate" by most people at that time. He was a hard working man, by trade a farmer, carpenter and merchant. For several years he worked in the timber a lot. When he was young, probably in his teens, while loading an old time cap and ball pistol, sitting putting in the powder and "tow" - a material used to tamp the powder into the cylinder of the pistol - having the powder and bullets pressed into the cylinder and the cap put on the powder tube with the gun resting on his left leg after completing the loading process, he released the hammer on the cap and it discharged. One bullet went into his left knee and one penetrated his right hand slightly. The bullet in the knee was,, not removed until several years later. It was around 1918 while building his new house, which now belongs to Howard Hargis, my father was carrying lumber on his shoulder walking across the floor joists before the floor was put down, stepping from one joist to another, he accidentally missed one joist and fell. In falling his leg which had been wounded before went down beside one of the joists tearing the knee cap mostly off. Daddy had to have surgery on his knee. The surgery was performed by Dr. Irvin Farmer and he was assisted by Dr. Ratliff. They thought it best to remove the bullet that had been in his knee so long while the cap was torn loose. The doctors seemed to think if the bullet was removed there might be a chance to loosen the knee joint which had been stiff for so long - about twenty years. The bullet was removed and is now in the possession of his son Ollie. My father remained a cripple the remainder of his life. Daddy never accumulated much wealth in his lifetime. But, as has often been said, a rolling stone never gathers much moss, we never remained very long at one place. We lived at Clifty. Ano, Kentucky was our post office when the three oldest children Ollie, Millard and Ethel were born. Hattie was born at Colo, Kentucky. We lived in Poplarville about two years. We moved from Clifty to Colo, near the Clay Hill Church. While there my father farmed, as we children were too small to be of much help, he also helped build the Tramway as it was called. It was a railway leading from the coal mine a short way from where we lived. They used a small steam engine which was called a "Dinkey" which pulled four or five coal cars which would be loaded up at the mines and taken down the Tramway to the coal yard near the Pitman Greek bridge, near where the Ruth Post Office is presently located. There the coal was unloaded near the roadside to be hauled to different places. A larger part was taken to Somerset and sold there. It was hauled in wagons for there were not many, if any, trucks in the year of 1909. Many changes have been made in the Colo Community since the time we lived there. In the spring of 1910 my Daddy, after selling the farm which is now owned by Elmer Erp near Clay Hill, moved his family to Grandfield, Oklahoma. There he rented a farm about fourteen miles northeast of Grandfield. It was here that he met with misfortune. He had planted corn and cotton and the season was very favorable. One mid-summer afternoon, when the corn was about knee high and the cotton was near the same height and in full bloom, a dark cloud arose in the east. My Daddy and Mother gathered up their children and took us to the storm dugout and it was but a few minutes until the storm was on. The people in Oklahoma called it a cyclone. There was a high wind, rain and hail - some of the hail stones that fell were near the size of a golf ball. After the storm was over, Daddy got out of the dugout, and as he looked out he saw our house was destroyed. The fields, where just a few minutes before were so pretty and encouraging for a good crop, everything lay desolate; the corn and cotton was beaten to the ground. Looking over the fields you would of thought there never had been any corn and cotton planted there. Mr. Graves, the man we rented the farm from claimed to be an infidel and probably was. Daddy begged him to go to the dugout with us. We children called him "Grandpa" although he was no kin to us. Mother and Daddy taught us to call him "Grandpa" to show our respect to him as he was near eighty years of age. He told us he didn't believe there was a God. It was kindly hard for we children to believe him, especially Ollie and me. I was eight years old, Ollie was ten, our sister Ethel was four and Hattie was two years old. Back to the story, but true of Mr. Graves. Somedays we, Ollie and I, would be playing in the yard in front of he house where he lived alone as his wife was dead there were days when he did not feel well he would be lying on his bed and we could hear him say, Lord, have mercy on me." We would think if he believed there was no God, why was he calling on him for mercy. In reading this, you might be confused as to why Mr. Graves lived so close as I mentioned us playing around in front of his door and me saying before our house was destroyed in the cyclone. To make it clear, the house was a large frame house built in a tee shape with two rooms leading off from the front rooms of the house; we lived in these rooms and they were destroyed in the cyclone. Mr. Graves would not go to the storm dugout with us although Daddy and Mother tried hard to persuade him. He was living in the part of the house that was not destroyed. After the storm was over, Daddy said before leaving the dugout, "I guess the old man was probably killed." After he saw our part of the house was gone, the remaining part reeled on the foundation, and going to the door of the room where he was, he found the door jammed tight. Daddy went to a window and he saw Mr. Graves walking the floor, so frightened, and his face as white as cotton. Daddy spoke to him in a loud voice but he being so frightened, was unable to answer for some time. My father was asking him if he was hurt. After prying the door open, he went to the old man and leading him out, Mr. Graves said, "I have never witnessed such a terrible time like this. After that, it was never any trouble to get him to go to the storm dugout. From then on, when there would come up a light rain cloud, you could see the "poor old man," (if I should say such an expression) circling the outside, of his yard going to the dugout as he did not want us to see him going, because he had bragged that he would never go to the dugout and saying, "If there was such a thing as a God. he would not send a disaster upon people." After leaving this place of Mr. Graves, where we had nothing left since our house and crops were destroyed, Daddy moved his family to Uncle "Randall Parley’s" place on a farm about eighteen miles southwest of Grandfield. There we lived in a tent for three or four months. This was Daddy's brother and this farm was at Fort Auger. It was once an Army Fort where the Indians and white people had fought. Several miles around were Indian Territory called "Big Pasture." My Daddy was soon able to lease a farm that belonged to some Indians as most of the land around there belonged to the Indians. We moved on this farm and Daddy bought two team of mules and all the fanning tools we needed. The disaster had caused my father to be very short of money and Uncle Randall and Aunt Matilda, his wife, were really good to us as we had no home. They asked us to come and stay until we could find a farm so we could put out another crop. I am most sure they helped Daddy every wav they could and of which T. "Millard" am very thankful for all they did for us when we really needed help. As the remark is often made, "A friend in need is a friend in deed." The farm we leased did not have a storm dugout, so Daddy went to work to dig one very soon after we moved there and had it completed shortly as the ground was a sandy loam soil, they made it like we make them here in Kentucky. After the pit is dug, they put the wall and roof of lumber. Then putting a vent in the top, and put dirt on the roof about ten to twelve inches deep. After that was finished, there was a lot of dirt left. One day Ollie and I remembered how the trains we had ridden on coming from Kentucky to Oklahoma, went through long railroad tunnels. We decided we would make a tunnel through this big mound of dirt. We dug about half way through and then we began on the other side and soon we had the opening through. Brother said to me, "You crawl through firsthand I, not realizing the danger since I was only eight years old, began to crawl through. I got about half way through and Ollie stepped on the top and the dirt caved in on me. Since ray face was being pressed to the ground and I could not move my arms or legs, it was very difficult to breathe. Ollie seeing what had happened, got scared and ran away leaving me "buried alive." It so happened that mother was sweeping the floor and opening the door, she just happened to see me and saw my feet sticking out of the dirt. She ran as quickly as she could, got a hoe and began to dig. Soon I was rescued, just a heart beat between me and death. Just about one quarter of a mile from our house was the Fort Auger School House where we went to school. We attended school there three years-1910 to 1913. There was no church house in the "Big Pasture" vicinity, so the people used the school house for church services. One summer when we were picking our cotton, I said we, anyway Ollie and I helped a little, Ollie was ten and I was eight - Daddy and Mother did most of it although Daddy hired three families, eight people in all to pick cotton. It is a wonderful memory to me, after a days work was done in the field all would gather around after supper, sitting down under the beautiful "Oklahoma Moon" and hearing these people tell jokes. Two of these families moved in the house with us until cotton picking season was over and the remainder of the crew lived in small shacks as we called them that my father had built for these folk. One summer when Daddy was very busy during cotton picking time, a revival began at Fort Auger School House. Ollie and I wanted to go so Daddy and Mother let us go. After the first night we wanted to go every night, so naturally we were hard to get up in the rooming. Daddy decided he would try to stop Ollie and me from going so much. One night while we were at church Daddy made a "Tall Jane" putting it on a goose neck hoe, using a sheet so he could hold it high in the air. I do not think Daddy was a Christian at this time. If he had been, he probably would not have cared for his going. Anyway, that night as Ollie and I were coining home from church we got very near the house and looked and there arose a "great" ghostly looking object like a man or a woman and looked to be about ten feet tall. We were scared so badly, we started running back to the schoolhouse where the church service had been held, although everyone had gone home. We were afraid to go down the road so we decided we would try again to make it to the house. But, when reaching the same place in front of the house, the same ghostly thing rose up again. This time seemed like there was two but was only one. So, away we went running again. Daddy thought this time he would go down through the cornfield to try to get ahead of us and run us back to the house, but him running through the com and the rattling of the com blades scared us even more. After this we were too frightened to try to go home that night. There was a big coal-bin built beside the school house and we decided to go there, although it was half or two-thirds full of coal. We managed to get the heavy lid up - Ollie almost eleven and myself nine years. It seems you are a little stronger when you are scared but anyway, we both crawled inside and let the lid down. Just a few minutes later we looked through a crack and we could see something moving around outside. Of course, it was Daddy looking for us I am sure, but he did not open the lid. If he had, we would have died with fear. We were so scared, but could have almost heard our heart beat. We both lay there all night on these hard lumps of coal. Next morning we crawled out of the bin all black and dirty, but anxious to get up to the house and tell what an awful night it had been and what we had seen. Daddy or Mother never said much until we had finished our story. We never attended the meeting again. One day while Daddy was picking cotton with the rest of the crew, he came to the house to get a jug of water to take. Back to the field. After filling the jug, he went Lo the com crib and got a burlap sack. Not examining it closely, he wet the sack thoroughly with water, wrapped it around the jug and tied it securely with strings , He put it on Ms shoulder and there was a centipede hidden in the bag and it stung Daddy on the shoulder. and in just a few minutes he was going into fits, he was suffering so. Mother got someone to get a doctor. When the doctor got there he gave him a shot. He said if he had been a few minutes later, Daddy probably would have died. In the year of 1913, Daddy decided we would move back to Kentucky, My Daddy bought a farm on Whetstone from Delbert Langford, now belonging to the Dock Stogsdill (deceased) heirs. Then leaving there, we moved near the old Whetstone Schoolhouse and built a store house and living quarters, or three rooms adjoining the store building. We lived there less than one year. Daddy wanted to go back to Oklahoma to farm again. So Daddy, Ollie and I went back to Grandfield and put out a crop of com and cotton. Then within six months, Daddy decided to come back to Somerset, Kentucky, as he still owned the store, Mother and my two sisters Ethel and Hattie had stayed here while we were gone and kept the store. After coming back, he decided to buy a farm. He bought two hundred acres from Nancy Phelps about the year 1915. This was originally the Robert (Robin) Randall farm. Daddy sold Robert L. Hail one hundred or somewhere close acres on which Robert L. Hail now lives. The house we moved into was an old time large log house, although it was also weather boarded. The rafters were fastened on with wooden pegs, the roof of boards put on with cut square nails, it was a real old house near one hundred years old at that time. So Daddy moved the store from Whetston and he had to build a store house. He decided to build a new dwelling house-he did this in the year of 1918. Daddy worked very hard to support his family. We had plenty of clothing to wear and plenty to eat for which we were very thankful. In the latter part of Sept. 1919 I, Millard Parkey decided to go to Indianapolis, Indiana to work. At that time we lived on the farm now owned by Howard Hargis. Daddy had gone to Somerset to take a wagon load of lumber. A short distance down the road I met Daddy coming home. He stopped the mules and got out of the wagon to come talk to me. He asked me where I was going. I said, "back to Indiana to work." He asked me if I had enough money for my fare and I told him yes but he handed me a dollar bill, saying this is all I have got in my pocket. He then took my hand and we said "goodbye" not thinking we would ever see each other alive here on this earth. It was the last time I saw my Daddy alive, but someday I will see him alive, for my Daddy was a Christian. He trusted Christ as his Saviour in 1915 under the preaching of Rev. U. B. Harp. After leaving Daddy there on the road, I went on my way to Indiana. Daddy was never much well after that time. He worked many days I am sure when he did not feel like it. While I was away, the home folks never sent me but very little information about what was happening back home. So in January 1920, Daddy decided he would have a sale, which he did, selling all the personal property and most of the household furniture. He rented the farm to Robert L. Hail and also sold him the store. My Daddy wanted to move back to Oklahoma, that making the fourth time he had been there. Since I was away, I knew nothing about the sale until about two weeks later. Daddy's plan was to leave the rest of the family here and he would go on to Oklahoma first and rent a farm, buy a team of mules, farm tools he needed and then send for the rest of the family after he had everything ready. So myself still in Indiana, this being the winter of 1920 when the influenza was so bad and so many dying with it. Daddy arrived at Temple, Oklahoma and went first to uncle Randall Parkey, his brother near Temple. My Mother said that Daddy had planned to come through Indianapolis to take me with him, but somehow he didn't. Oh how I wish that he had. Daddy was already sick when he got there and four days later on February 8, 1920 he died. It really was a great shock to me as I did not know about the sale or about Daddy going to Oklahoma. I was at work at the Link Belt Company in Indianapolis. Around eleven A.M. February 9, 1920, the scale clerk where I was trucking steel told me there was a telegram at the office that had just come in saying my father was bad sick. Of course, I thought he was joking.' I said, "Oh, you are joking." He watched me to see how I was taking it. Then he told me what the telegram said, "J. P. Parkey, your father is dead." I knew then it was true. Then I got my money at the office and left my job running. It was about six blocks to where I boarded and I hurried to catch the train home thinking Daddy had died at home here in Kentucky. It seemed like a dream - it was so hard to believe it to be true. Once in a while, I would take the telegram out of ray pocket and look at it. Yes, it was so. I came on the train to Somerset and when I got off the train, I noticed several people at the depot from out home waiting, including my brother Ollie. I was wondering why so many people were there, not just to meet me surely. So I asked Ollie why they were all there and he told me they had come to get the body of Daddy, that he died in Oklahoma and Uncle Alford Parkey, Daddy's brother was bringing the body by train. As we waited for the train to come, which was two or three hours after I had arrived, I still felt it was only a dream. Each time a train came in while we waited, Ollie and some of the others would go out to listen and see. It did not seem to me that either train was the right one. I did not go out each time a train came in. Near midnight, or maybe a little after, I heard a train coming. It did not sound like any of the others - it had a lonesome sound. I said to Ollie, "This is the train." Walking to the door of the depot, my eyes were set on the baggage coach which the body of my Daddy was in. Sure enough, as the big door rolled back the first thing that was brought out was the white box that contained the casket which held the body of my Daddy. We put the casket in the wagon, brought it out to the old home place and to its final, resting place to await the coming of our Saviour and "The Great Rapture." Daddy had said to me while living that he wanted to work and get something ahead so he would not have to work so hard when he got old. But the Good Lord knows what is best. Daddy never lived to be very old. He died February 8, 1920 at the age of forty-two years, He had finished building our new house but never lived long enough to enjoy it much. But he will live in a mansion where there will be no more suffering and death, We are going to meet our loved ones someday. This written in memory of my Daddy Jesse Payton Parkey by his son Millard Houston Parkey. 1976. " I loved him dearly"

Linda C The Holton & Arnold Families Of Pulaski County, Ky. 1967 By: Alan Whitis, 2418 Asbury Street Indianapolis, Indiana Stapey Flavin Holton -Born 1844 -In Claiborne County, Tenn. Son of James R. and Martha Gowen/ Gion Holton. Moved with his family to Pulaski County, Ky. In 1849. He was but 5 years old when leaving Tenn., all of his brothers and sisters having been born in Tenn., except baby Emily, who was born in Pulaski County about 1850. She was a sickly baby, having Erysipelas at birth, but according to records she lived to be a young lady. There was Matilda age 17, when they move to Ky., William age 13,Elizabeth age 12,Hugie age 11, John age 9, Stapey and Elmira age 10,baby Emily born about 1850 after moving to Pulaski. They lived on a farm according to census records of Pulaski County, Ky., for 1850 indicates they lived near Rockcastle River, near Line Creek, James R. was listed as 50 years old in 1850 and a farmer. There is nothing to indicate otherwise but that Stapey Holton and his brothers and sisters lived a normal life, as any country children do, visiting friends and neighbors on Sunday, fishing in the river, hunting rabbit, and fighting with brothers and sisters as the case may be. In November of 1854 his oldest sister Matilda married Hugh Barclay, Son of Gorge & Nancy Graves Barclay, in March of 1856, they had a son Granville Barclay. But when the baby was only 5 months old Matilda died of consumption, in the late fall of 1856. Also on July 19,1856 they lost there mother Martha Gowen or Goin Holton born 1809 died of consumption at the age of 45 years; the daughter of Uriah and Nancy Gowen, And born in Tenn. Where she was buried I don’t know. There is not information of where the children lived after the death of there mother, but some of them lived with their father, where Stapey lived, I have no record, but as most boys did at that time probably worked for some farmer for room and board. Though is shows that he did attend school and could read and write. He always wrote his name and did not make his mark as many did at that time. On February 11, 1857,seven months after the death if his wife, James R. Holton remarried. He married Miss Basheba Jackson born 1826,almost 25 years younger than he. She was the daughter of Joseph and Milly Jackson. The 1860 census shows that after there marriage the family moved. This time they lived in Burdine District. They had no children in 1860, of their own but living with them were, Hughie, John, Elmira, and Emily. In 1870 census shows they were parents of Amanda E. Holton born in 1860, Phoeba born in 1862, and Mary B. Holton born in 1865. In 1880, Bashaba Jackson Holton is not with the family, I find no record of her death, but James R. Holton is living with Jim and Elmira Jackson. The youngest child Mary is living with them also. Amanda E. Holton is shown as the adopted child of Bullford & Cena Bullock living with them. While Phoeba is living in the home of William Riley & Hannah Evans Mize as their hired girl. In the records show that they lived near in home and list John Whitaker as their neighbor. But they James R. and Basheba Holton were the parents of Amanda E. Holton, Phoeba Holton, and Mary B. Holton. Where Stapy lived in 1857 until 1861 is still unknown. But on July 24,1961, he enlisted at Dallas, Pulaski County, Kentucky in the Union Army as a Private at the age of 17. In Company K, Commanded at that time by Captain James W. Barnett in the third Regiment of Kentucky Volunteers Infantry. First in command was Col. Thomas E. Bramlett. Also enlisting at Dallas, Ky., on the same day was John Robert a neighbor, who had once lived in Tennessee near to where Stapy was born, enlisted period of three years or more. On February 7, 1862, first Lieutenant Roberts was promoted to Captain to fill the vacancy created when Captain Barnett resigned. Thus becoming Mr. Holton’s superior officer. Enlisting near the same time from the same community was Hugh Barclay husband of Matilda Holton deceased. Sent to Camp Roberson where he contracted the measles and died in November 1861. He was brought back to Rock Lick Church near Grundy for burial. Many form the same neighborhood answered to their country’s call among them where Ephraim Mile Hawk, Solomon Inhabnitt, son of Cunningham & Logan, son of William Riley and Hannah Evans Mize. On September 20,1836,Stapy was captured at the Battle of Chicumauga by the Southern Army and was held as a prisoner of war until October 1864 at Danville, Virginia. While a prisoner he became ill from starvation, exposure, and begun spitting up blood. From which he never recovered, was honorable discharged at Louisville, Kentucky on October 1, 1864. After his discharge he returned to Pulaski County, Ky., where he immediately started courting the pretty 17 year old Sarah Jane Arnold. Daughter of Nathaniel Arnold Senior and Minerva (Ramsey) Arnold. It must have been a love match from the beginning for they were married at the home of her parents in a Pulaski County, KY on December 28, 1864. With all the families present. James R. Holton and James Jackson were witnesses to the marriage. With the Rev. Ephriam Meece, as Minister. With a little imagination one can picture he big wedding dinner that took place and the fun always followed, such as riding the groom on the rail, maybe a good jug of moonshine hid out in the barn. Anyway, we know this marriage had the blessing of both families. Life seemed to smile on this marriage on March 1, 1866, a daughter, was born to this home, a healthy baby girl named Martha B. Shewas for Stapey’s late mother Martha. Minerva Jackson and Ephriam Jackson attended Mrs. Holton at the birth of her daughter. The old disease which had been contracted during the time in prison began to trouble him more now and he was becoming unstable to do much manual labor. On November 12, 1866 he appeared before Mr. E. D. Porch, Clerk of the County Court in Pulaski County, KY applying for a pension. The pension was granted. How much he received I don’t know but I found two receipts for $48.00 if this was the amount I don’t know. They were blessed with another daughter Mary E. Holton born July 8, 1868 who was to become the wife of a neighbor boy, William Madison Whitaker at the age of 18 years old. His parents, Elisha and Elizabeth (Stogsdill) Whitaker, lived but a few farms away. On February 22, 1870, Minerva E. Holton was born. This young lady was named for Grandmother Minerva Arnold. On July 22, 1870, when Stapey’s old Commanding officer James W. Barnett called to take the 1870 Federal Census on Line Creek, he found this family living very well, listed as head of a home and occupation was Farmer. With personal property valued at $300.00 and real estate at 250.00 was not bad at that time for a sick man with a wife, and three little girls. On November 25,1872 the baby of the family was born, another baby girl. Mira E. Holton named for Aunt Mira Jackson, sister of Stapey’s who swore under oath to have been present at all the births of these children. How proud they must have been of their little family. Four little girls with all their names starting with the letter M. All named for a dear relative. I would think great care and love went into these names and children. In these community where little girls grew up was made up of good neighbors and kin, most of them going to Line Creek Baptist Church or the Old Valley Church, where services were usually held once a month by a visiting preacher. Then everyone would walk for a miles to come to church. Many of these people are buried at these church cemetery’s with no marker except a field stone. This Valley was made up of families that were related to each other and knew everyone’s kin for miles around. Neighbors and friends of the Holton’s on Line Creek on 1870 were Bowling and Sarah Price Bullock, Isreal and Elizabeth Price, Drury Harper, with his many children, Father if Silas who had a son John who would make up part of this family tree one day. James Jackson and Elmira Holton sister of Stapey, Bowling g. Ping, son of Robert and Patience Whitson Ping his (second wife; first wife being an Inhabnitt) Permelia (Grider) Parkey, Andrew Dugger and his wife, Elisha Whitaker and Elizabeth Stogsdill; her father, Shadrack Stogsdill lived not far away. This Elisha was the father of William Madison Whitaker, who was to married to Mary Holton. Stephen Ping, who married Nancy Sewell and was the Great grandfather Wallace Ping. Abner Ping (Stephen’s son), Jackson Price and wife Louvica, living with them were Joseph Inabbit and wife Sophie E., Dawson G. Ping (Son of Stephen and Nancy), James C. Eaton and Rachel Ping, his wife. Zebuleon Chaney, William Bullock, Jesse Pointer, Joshua and Kizzie Sewell Hansford, and Blufford and Cena Bullock. These people were among the few that made up the neighborhood. About all the brothers and sisters of Stapey’s and Sarah Jane (Arnold) Holton had married and were living not far away. Elmira Holton had married James W. Jackson. Jim was the son of William and Sarah Woodall Jackson, and two new nephew’s of Elmira’s step-mother, Basheba Jackson Holton. They had a household full of children by now and most all lived next door to the Holton’s. Thomas F., Joseph, Newton J., William C., Stephen S., Henry H., and John M. Jackson. All born close to the ages of their own little girls. Sarah Jane’s sister Elizabeth married Michael Sowders and had William R. Sowders born in 1856. Her younger sister Susan Arnold married Cassin Clark and had Martha Clark. Sarah Jane’s brother Larkin Arnold and his wife Mary had William J., George W., James R., Matilda S., and Martha before 1880. James Arnold, Sarah Jane’s brother married Rosa E. in 1779 and had Sarah B.; her brother William R. Arnold married Martha Cromer, they had Mary E. Arnold, Margaret J., Dora A., James, Sarah A., and Ida B. Arnold. Mrs. Nancy Cromer, Martha’s mother lived with them; her brother Nathan Arnold Jr., was still single, he may have married but I have no record of it. After the death of there mother Minerva J. Ramsey Arnold in 1776 or 1777, he and his father, Nathan Arnold Sr. lived with sister Susan Clark and her husband. After the birth of Sarah Jane’s last baby Mira E. Arnold, she found life becoming more difficult, her husbands health was failing very fast, some days he could barley get around at all and his cough was becoming worse all the time. Tending to four children, and sick husband, and the many thousand of chores around the farm, trying to make a living on a small pension he got was no easy matter for a young woman. Good neighbors helped of course, as they always did, she mentioned some of them in records as Elizabeth Jones, Tempy Chaney, Mary Barlow, Cynhha Cash, and many more. On June 15, 1875, eleven years after his discharge from the army, Stapey Holton died at his home of the disease he contracted during the time in the Army. Still in the prim to his life, thirty-one years old, leaving a young widow and four small children. Where Mr. Holton is buried in Bill Whitaker Cemetery across form Bethany Baptist Church in Pulaski Co, Kentucky. Sarah Jane Arnold Holton Hawk and her second husband Ephraim Miles Hawk are all buried in a row side by side. As usual after the death of a partner, life must have been very hard for this young family. But I find no record of them ever being parted, both mother and daughters lived together. Shortly after her husband death Mrs. Holton applied for a widows pension, in Pulaski County, Ky., and received it. Starting on June 16, 1875to receive the sum of $8.00 per month until she re-married, and $2.00 for each little girl until they reached the age of 16 years. One has no way of knowing what this family did, in the following months, but, on December 18,1875 which would indicate that this family has moved. Mrs. Holton signed a paper in Rock Castle Co, Ky, giving the exact ages of her children, also sworn affidavit of the attending women at the birth at the birth of these children. As she couldn’t write her name, she made her mark. Witnessed by W.P. Gibbon & Thomas W. Gibson. As I mentioned earlier in this paper Ephriam Miles Hawk, enlisted in the Union Army and served the same time Mr. Holton did. When Mr. Hawk came home he was listed as a farmer living alone in 1870 in Burdine District of Pulaski County, Kentucky, age 30 years.

These Were the sons born to them Lee Ander (Lee) Hawk married Alice Price, James Frank Hawk, John Hawk, Virgil Hawk, Benjamin Sampson Hawk (married Sarah Ester Phelps). Benjamin was the father of Leonard Hawk whom married Ninna Mize and lived in Lebanon, Indiana. It seems Sarah Hawk’s daughters lived with she and Mr. Hawk, and were well treated. By 1880 they were getting to be young ladies. On March 25,1886 Mary E. Holton married William Madison Whitaker, born 7 Apr 1866-Feb 8 1947. Mary E.

Hawk 1878 Nancy Hawk 1879 Gabriel and Martha Ashley (Nevil) Hawk lived near the Rockcastle County line, next farm to James R. Holton and Martha Gowen/Goin Holton. I found more Hawks living in Rockcastle than Pulaski Co, Ky. Ephriam Miles Hawk and Stapey Holton grew up on adjoining farms and its is safe to say they were playmates because they wore close to the same age. Martha (Gowen/Goin) Holton died in 1856 and Martha Ashley Hawk died near the same time. Where Gabriel Hawk lived after the death of his wife but the chidren were taken to homes of their older brothers. Daniel and Lucinda Hawk raised Sampson & Rachel Hawk, while Ephriam Miles & James Schlyer Hawk lived with Benjamin and Jane (Waddle) Hawk. In 1870, Gabriel Hawk lived with Sampson, and Rachel Hawk his daughter in Dallas district of Pulaski Co, Ky. Next to farm to John Roberts, Aaron Inabnitt, Sarah Eaton, Edward Brinkley, & Silas Harper. Gabriel Hawk was then 67 years old. In 1870, Ephriam Miles Hawk, is living alone on a farm in Dallas neighborhood near John M. Woodall, Samuel Price, and John R. Whitaker after serving time in the Union Army from Kentucky. There is not much more to this little story of the Holton’s and Hawk families. James R. Holton the last records I found of him was living with his son-in-law, James Jackson and Elmira Holton Jackson, and was crippled with Rheumatism very badly. When he died I do not know. Most of this information was found in the Library of Frankfort, KY, the Court House of Pulaski Co, Ky, and the Federal Census Report researched by Alma Whitis. Also some by Linda Cutter based on visiting the cemeteries of which these people are buried during October 2004. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Alan Whitis March 1967 The Arnold Family In Pulaski County Is An Old Family… The first Arnold’s there was, Peter Arnold in 1799, listed on the tax records when the county was only one year old, listed 100 acres on Fishing Creek in Pulaski County, Kentucky.

Linda C Parkey Family History By: Millard Houston & Lilly Mae Parkey For some time I have been trying to trace back the family tree of James Harvey Parkey who is my grandfather and my grandmother Matilda Randall, his wife. Ancestors - several Parkeys - uncle, cousins living in Oklahoma, but now have died. Back in my childhood I remember seeing part of them. Well now my story changes. Last August 14, 1975 my wife Lillie Mae and I went to visit our youngest daughter. She is Vera Faye Parkey -Lynn Passed away Mar 10 1980 and she lives in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She had begged us for several months to come out and visit her and family. We had been putting off going as we were not financially able but we made our mind to go. I had wanted for so long to take my companion out to Oklahoma to let her see for herself what a beautiful country it is. I had told her about it, as of course I have stated above I had lived out there two different times 1909 to 1913-1915. We had our crops all under control. Our five children Edward Lee, Clara Jean, Howard, Lowell and Vera Faye were begging us to take a vacation and go see Vera Faye as we had never visited her. The children said if we would go they would all help pay our way. I think by doing that we would go -they wanted us to get away from the farm and get some rest. Then they all began to beg us to go on the airplane. Well, that was something else. We had never experienced a plane trip before. So on August 14, 1975 myself 73 years old and my wife 68 boarded the airplane, the big jet on The Delta Air Line at Lexington at 8:20 A. M. Well, the funny thing happened - we just got started, Lowell was taking us to Lexington. He ran out of gas at 6:30 A. M. He called on his C. B. radio for gas but before they got there we saw Carl Slavey pull up at his gas station and was just down the street. I went up there and got gas. We really were getting worried and were wondering if we would make it before our plane left. But we were still determined to go by plane. We would not let all of this get us upset. Our maximum height was 28,000 feet, but going over Kansas we ran into a rain cloud. They told all passengers to keep our seats and not be alarmed, we would go up to 35,000 feet which is seven miles above the earth. Some people had told us not to look out but we did and we really enjoyed the ride. Out first stop was Chicago, Illinois. We were there about two hours then on to Oklahoma City where our daughter met us at the airport. While there in Oklahoma City Vera took us to several places of importance. While there we took the phone directory and looked up all Parkey names that we right locate some of our relatives. We were lucky - first one we called was in Temple, Oklahoma, my second cousin Don Parkey. He told us his Uncle Fred Parkey lived in Iowa Park, Texas. Since then Don and Son passed away of which we are very sorry. We did enjoy our visit with them. Fred Parkey invited us to visit them at the old home place. His parents, my Uncle Randall and Aunt Matilda Parkey, also this was the house my father Jesse Payton Parkey passed away the year of 1920, Uncle Randall is deceased. Aunt Matilda is in a rest home near Temple, Oklahoma. We were very sorry we did not see her. Vera Faye our daughter and children Michelle and Wendy took us over to Temple, Oklahoma, to visit our relatives and Fred and his wife Mildred Parkey met us at the farm or his home of Uncle Randall and Matilda Parkey. No one lives there but the children have remodeled the dwelling house. It is a beautiful place and the family often meets there to visit. We really enjoyed our visit with them. There they told us of their family and asked about our family. Fred and Mildred brought food and we spent the night there. It was sad to me for in February 8, 1920 my father died in that house with influenza. This place was twenty-six miles from Grandfield, Oklahoma. I did want to go there too for I had lived there or close there sixty-five years ago. Vera said for me not to worry about it, she would get us there some way. So I was talking to Fred about it after we ate supper and Fred and his wife Mildred said they would take us all over there to Grandfield. I was so glad to be in the city of Grandfield, Oklahoma again. Of course, as I have stated before, I had been there when just a little barefoot boy. I wanted to go on out to Fort Auger where we children Ollie, Ethel and I had gone to school - Hattie our youngest sister wasn't old enough to go. Fred took us out to Fort Auger. When we got there we, Fred, Vera, myself and wife visited the Old Fort Auger Schoolhouse. Someone had begun tearing it down. But it brought back many precious memories of when I went to school there. When I went inside I could recall so many things and the building looked natural, but it was decaying as the school had been consolidated and no one lived around. It had probably not been used for thirty-five or forty years or maybe longer. Fred didn't seem to know. While inside I picked up two pieces of four inch board that had been used as ceiling and one brick from the flue. Vera got one just for a keepsake. The house we lived in was a short distance, maybe one half mile from the schoolhouse. I was surprised to see that the dwelling house was still standing but it was gradually crumbling down. Now that it was getting late and the evening sun was just going down - my wife was standing in the yard said, "Millard the sun is going down. " Oh, it was so pretty and I was made glad that she got to see this for I had often told her that when the sun went down that the country was so level - looked like as the song says, the sun was sinking in the golden west, We were so glad to be blest of the grand opportunity to make this trip. We know the Lord answers many prayers and we know that was one, we had prayed to make this trip. Now it was getting late in the afternoon, so we had to go back to Temple, At Fred's old home place, after spending the night there, next morning went with Fred and Mildred his wife to their home at Iowa Park, Texas. We ate dinner with them and bidding them goodbye we headed for Oklahoma City where Vera lived. On Friday, my companion and I decided to come back home. So we had Vera take us to catch a bus. We headed for Somerset and arrived at 7:00 P. M. , leaving behind so far away our youngest daughter and family. May God bless her until we meet again. Dear children, we as your father and mother love you all very much. We may never be permitted to take another trip by plane or by bus to visit you that are far away, but some day probably the near future, your Daddy and Mother will take a long trip to never return until Jesus comes again. Please children and grandchildren, will you try to meet us over there. Your Dad and Mom, Millard and Lillie Mae Parkey
