Saw your following message to Brad:"John Evans Piner was my great-great grandfather, born in 1810 in NC and married to Aletha Tabitha Sparrow. I am trying to work back from him, and I believe his father was Thomas Piner born in VA and died in Boone County, KY. John's grandfather was Thomas Piner, Sr. who died in Culpeper, VA in 1776.My grandparents came from Covington, Ky and lived in Muncie, IN when I knew them back in the 30's."
I am very interested in making contact with you regarding our Piner line.My husband's Piner ancestors also migrated to Muncie from KY.Jim's (my husband) line is as follows:
William E. Piner md. Almeda Rousein 1855Kenton Co., KY Their son Newton Columbus Pinermd. Ida Lee Hoffman in 1883 Hamilton Co., OH (Newton and Ida Lee PINER moved to Muncie, IN in the 1880s) Their daughter Pearlie May Piner md. Walter Kirby Bishop in 1917Delaware Co., IN (Pearlie May and Walter Kirby Bishop were my husbands grandparents)
Jane McClary SCALESwas first married to PRESLEY PINER. After PRESLEY PINER died, JANE McCLARY SCALES md. Daniel Jasper ROUSE 1831 Boone Co., KY. Their daughter Henrietta Rouse md William Henry Hoffman.in 1860Pendleton Co., KY Their daughter Ida Lee Hoffman md. Newton Columbus PINER(see above outline--same ancestors) (Ida Lee and Newton Columbus PINER were my husbands's great grandparents--living in MUNCIE, IN)
I was going through the Piner forum then going back to my book "The Hoffman & Allied Families of Northern KY" by W.W. Hoffman and then saw your name in the book on page 190.and see that you are a great granddaughter ofWILLIAM E. and ALMEDA (ROUSE) PINER---I about went nuts !!!!!!!!!Who were the parents of WILLIAM E. PINER??????---grin--were his parents John Evans and Alethie Tabitha.So your grandfather being Sylvester Clarence was a brother to my husband's great grandfather Newton Columbus PINER!!!!!Did Sylvester and Newton go to Muncie at the same time??????So many questions to ask you?!?!??!Possibly you would like to have the information I have on Newton and Ida's descendants.
