one can assume that most of the first 9 children were born in Russell Co Va,as that is where you will find them in the 1850 census.

this list of names was sent to me by a fellow researcher,I have added his contact info below

Ron Cook


A lot of the dates for these children were taken from various sources and also from the Letcher Co Ky Birth Records,and the Latter Day Saints site which gave information submitted by

Wilson HENSLEY                                            

514 Treehaven Dr

Winchester,Ky 40391
