FIRST - I TYPE IN CAPS SO I CAN SEE IT. BUT FOR YOU........ try these sites: http://www.rootsweb.com/~kyrowan/http://www.rootsweb.com/~kyrowan/ http://tpettit.best.vwh.net/family/pettit/FG_TOC.htmhttp://tpettit.best.vwh.net/family/pettit/FG_TOC.htm . These should have some answers for you. If your questioning 'temple work' as in LDS's.... there are a number of Quesinberry's that are LDS members. However, I do not know of any this side of the Rockies. A cousin has taken it upon themselves to post some in LDS listings.
As for an inheritance...... I don't know of any of Lawson's kids that had an inheritance to collect. 5 of Lawson's children grouped together and paid for all expenses pertaining to several of their brothers burials in Rowan County. Lawson had disbursed all his holdings before his death so I don't know where any other inheritance would have come from.
I do know that Isaac came to my grandmother's home via taxi with his son and told her he had come home to die which he did 3 days later of a heart attack. Isaac's wife and a daughter attended the funeral for which my grandparents paid for cause Isaac didn't have any money. In checking past emails between 1999 - 2005, we have exchanged this information several times. At one time I was asked to meet with you all and take you to Isaac's grave site before your Dad died.
Donna L. Quesinberry Metropolitan DC response:
Ms. Akers-thank you for using non-caps I appreciate that. I believe that my sister Diane had wanted to meet with you to go to the gravesite, as I know it wasn't I.
However, you and I - (I wasn't aware Cherokee handle was *you*) did exchange a disparity in historical facts through a few emails and the fact I had sent press releases out on housing and single parent issues.
My father's father Issac Quesinberry was in good health when he went to Morehead before his move to Ohio with Clara and children. He wasn't dying and a heart attack isn't something we can say we are going to have to visit to do.
As I have stated previously to you I felt my father would be more aware of his father's health and decisions shared than perhaps my grandfather's sister (your grandmother) who felt Issac was poor, unsuccessful, and impoverished. I do know *your* family never interacted with Clara post Issac's death nor the children (except Aunt Anne who kept very quiet about that communication and only shared that Issac was divorced close to her own death and that from your assertions this disassociation seems to be against the close family values shared in Morehead.
Additionally, there are numerous LDS members of the Quesinberry family here in Washington DC and on this side of the Rockies-I am one. Sorry you haven't gotten to know us.
Anne Quesinberry, grandpa Issac's oldest child through Clara, did share that grandpa Issac had divorced prior to marrying Clara. There are notations-even on this site-that request data on Issac Quesinberry's marriage to Lydia Alice Hall, which was in Rowen County, Morehead, Kentucky between late 1800s and 1950-the same time that grandpa Issac lived, at that time the population of Morehead did not exceed 5600 according to government records. Your last name is spelt Quesenberry and excepting Lawson Eli infusion, I would say you are a different branch of the family tree.
There are records that imply a different history than you have to share, aside from records there is my own grandfather whom I choose to believe over a stranger. TheLDS data was from microfiche of United States Census Bureau Records for Rowen County Morehead Kentucky in the period, personally I do believe the US Government.
As far as the land records, we have decided to contact the courthouse and to obtain probate records to ascentertain any significant facts. Some of this data is retrievable through Morehead and others in Washington DC through second party repositories.
Thanks for your input and the links-I am still interested to hear from Lydia's family as I believe there is a direct association there that perhaps you were not privvy to. I do know-as all of us believe-Aunt Anne and Clara were so closed mouthed about the goings ons in Morehead and we were misdirected when we visited the courthouse-there's some bats in the bellfry and I believe others should add their 2 cents.
I do appreciate your intervention and awareness though.
