This John Martin Lile was born in Clark, KY in 1795.His father in law John Martin was an associate of Daniel Boone, mentioned in some histories of Boonesborough, KY.I have been trying to figure out how close Clark, KY is to Boonesborough.
I trace John Martin Lile back through a William Henry Lile b. 1772 in Ablemarle County, VA m. Elizabeth Martin.then through a John Lile b. abt. 1740 m. Sophia Jackson, then through a John Lyall B. 1695 in Massachusetts m. Mary Taylor.
Curiously, there is a Henry Lysle who bought 500 acres in Ablemarle COunty, VA in 1692.I am thinking there is a connection to this family, but I haven't made it yet.It would sure be interesting to find which parcel of land was owned by John Lile , and was it the same one as Henry Lysle.Legend has it my family springs from a Henri de Lile of France, and maybe this is the guy!
