I have John Granville Bookout (born 14 Sept 1859) as the child of James Bookout, born 30 May 1823 in KY and Elizabeth "Betsey" Overstreet. James' parents were Joseph Bookout born abt 1785 and Mary "Polly" Overstreet. Joseph's parents were Charles Bookout born before 1762 and Nancy Ann Cagle. Charles' father was Joseph Bookout, born abt 1700. He is sometimes referred to as Joseph I since he appears to be the 1st Bookout in America in this line. If this is not the John Granville Bookout you are seeking, I apologize!
