Sure sounds like there could be a connection.My Robert McNay and his family lived in Campbell Co., KY (Newport) at one time.I was born and raised in Covington, Ky. I know that Belle died around the time my grandmother, was born (1879) (maybe due to childbirth) and she had two brothers in the civil war.That was written on the Barton Papers. Other information I have is below.I did find the marriage bond where Columbus Routt signed it.Thanks for replying - Carole
