David Handley of Warren County, Kentucky b. 1785
I was hoping to find more information on David L. Handley who married Lucy Kirby on November 12, 1804 in Warren County, Kentucky. They had several children together, but we are unable to account for all the children that appear in the 1810-1830 censuses. I'm pretty sure of four of their children though: Jesse Handley (b. 1809), Peter David Handley (b. 1814), Emeline Handley (b. 1821), and John Handley (b. 1825). The 1850 census says that David was born about 1785 in North Carolina. The family lived in Warren County between 1804-1820, and then from the 1830 census to the 1850 they lived in Simpson County, Kentucky. Based on the information on other people's family trees, I think David died in 1856. I'm descended from David's son, Peter David Handley, who moved out to Texas. The old census records spell their last name in a variety of ways: Hanley, Hanly, Handly, etc.
If you have any information on this family, (e.g. David's parents or the names of other children that I have not listed) I would be very interested! Thanks!
