I am also a descendant of Samuel and Mariah Bottom. Samuel was born January 14, 1799 in Washington County, Ky., and died there December 13, 1882.He married his second cousin, Mariah E. Bottom on January 26, 1826 in Mercer County.Mariah was born March 22, 1806 in Washington County and died there May 4, 1885.They are buried side by side in their homestead cemetery which is located on private property just south of Jenkinsville in Washington County.
Mariah was the daughter of Jacob Bottom and Mary (Polly) Bridges.Jacob was born 1779 in Henrico County, Virginia.He died October 1, 1841 in Mercer County.Mary Bridges was born between 1780-1790 and died April 10, 1866.They were married May 15, 1805 in Mercer County.
I believe Samuel Bottom was the son of Robert Bottom and Mary O. Latimore, however I am not 100% certain.
Mary Bridges was the daughter of John Bridges and Mary Ligon.Jacob Bottom was the son of William Bottom and Mary Sweeney, both of Henrico County, Virginia.
Samuel and Mariah's children:Bradford Evan Bottom, Caltha Jestine Bottom, Calvin Wallace Bottom, Robert P. Bottom, Julyanne Bottom, Fidellar S. Bottom, Ellen Paralee Bottom, Jacob C. Bottom, Elizabeth M. Bottom and Charles Bottom.
I descend from Ellen Paralee Bottom and her husband Lucas Aaron Phillips.
