Notes for JOHN THOMAS PIRTLE: From: StJoseph27@aol.com [mailto:StJoseph27@aol.com] Sent: Sunday, December 31, 2006 To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Pirtle family history Hi Wanda, I believe I have corresponded with you in the past when we first started this, but a lot has been discovered since then. I have JOHN THOMAS PIRTLE, B. July 24, 1824 in Hardin KY.as my GGGrandfather. I have a letter written by a Bettie Stevens in 1970 to a Mrs. John Pirtle in Cecelia, KY trying to connect the same names. I have been to all three historical sites for genealogy in Elizabethtown, Ky. (the library, and two genealogy libraries ) and have found John Thomas Pirtle in Grayson County,KY. Married to Jane Hendricksfirst wife. Married July 12, 1847. they are in the 1850 Grayson Ky. census. I also have a picture in the cemetery in Paris, Edgar County, Illinois, of his tombstone. He along with last wife, Margaret Erdella Sims are buried there.My line follows these two. What I cannot connect is a true connection to his parents. We have Uriah Pirtle and Nancy Goldsberry but I cannot find any proof. Before I continue with his line I would like more . Also much of what I have came from Jeff Stevens, Las Vegas, NV. He sent me a picture of John Thomas Pirtle and Margaret Erdella Simms. He also sent me in the right directions. Still can't find a birth record for John Thomas Pirtle.Do you have anything on this elusive man? Kentucky is jam packed with Pirtles!! The Historical society in Elizabethtown, KY. even tried to help and they came up with hope and who he wasn't. I hope to head to Grayson Co. KY in the spring and see if I can find more. According to this letter I have from Bettie Stevens (1970) she states she was informed the courthouse burned and all of the old records were destroyed. Any hope of who John Thomas Pirtle belongs to would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time. Hope I made this as short as possible with as much info as I have. Carol Motley,Waukegan, Illinois
