Re: Kentucky Hanging
- Mr. Norris Very Great Compliments Sir,
Incredible you would bring up the 5th K.Y. My ancestors, one of which
as you stated fought, although deserted at Perrysville, the 5th K.Y.
infantry(Union) by the name of Henry Barker, while at the same time
his brother John Barker rode with the 5th K.Y. infantry, Mounted
As you are familiar with that battlefied, to say the least, you will
know of Hayes/Mayes road that borders the one side of it and also
Begley Creek, which I believe runs on the southern end of it. These
are both last names of my grandparents, Mayes not Hayes, and all of
the clan are buried up on the hill church down the road 151??? toward
Springfield. Can trace them back in the area to 1824 with Tobe Begley.
From what I've been told Hayes/Mayes road used to be Mayes road but
was renamed after the Seesh retreat as a dig at them--wives tale
probably. Anyhow I still stand by the 50/50.
