Re: Baldas / Palser CLEEK / CLICK b ca 1699
I was in Mercer Co., Kentucky looking for my Click Cleek ancestors.Mathias was born in Virginia in 1802.He married Elizabeth ________ b. 1797 in NC.He arrived in Mercer county after 1830 and before 1840.In 1840 census he had 7 children.The names I know are ArtymeciaArtemecia b. 23 Nov 1823, Lucretia b. bet 18211824, Eliza b. bet 1825 and 1830, Lucinday b. 1830, John b. 1832.
Elizabeth died between 1850 and 1860 because Mathias married again to a Mrs. Ellen Powell on 24 Mar 1859.Ellen had 2 children, a William b. 1847 and Eliza b. 1852.
Mathias and Ellen had a son Lewis born in 1860.
At the same time that Mathias was in Mercer Co., there were two other Click men, George G. Click who married Mrs. Rachel Ruark 20 June 1834.In the marriage record, a John Click says that Rachel is a widow and lives in Mercer Co.
John Click (probably the same that is part of the George G. marriage) married Anney Mosby 23 Mar 1837.
You were looking for a Mathias, George, and John plus others.Could the above be who you are looking for?
I descend through Artymicia who married Abraham J. Vannice.
