heirs. William, Jacob, Cartin, John, Sally, Aaron, Henrittia, and Polly
named as children. Joseph as another heir.
Warren Co., KY, Marriages, 1797 - 1851 Marriage of Joseph Earnest and Patsy
Upchurch married Feb 20, 1811. Sec: Hezekiah Spann. Her consent by
M. (Elizabeth Spann) -- His consent by F. Aaron Earnest.
Madison Co., Alabama Marriages p. 230: Marriage of Robert Ellison to Sally
Ernest 22 Jan 1819.
Henrietta Earnest md Edmund Whittworth 19 Jun 1825.
Certain Earnest md for first time Madison Co., Alabama.
Barry Sewell places Certain Earnest's birthdate at 1798, which moves each of
the later children's birthdates later.
info from Sue Cooper, Hired genealogist. 1464 Rice Hill Cir., Antioch, TN
37013. "From the many records found in the Spartanburg & Pendleton Co., SC,
Warren, Logan, and Simpson Co., KY I conclude that the Jacob., Sr. found in
Spartanburg Co., and Pendleton Co., SC are the same person, wife Agnes YOUNG,
who is named as the sister of William YOUNG in his 1791 will, Spartanburg., SC.
From the locations found in the deeds, names of witnesses, etc. in both
counties that the children of Jacob Earnest SR and His wife Agnes YOUNG were:
Jacob, Jr., Aaron, Thomas, Leadiwick, Nathaniel, Jenny, Mary (wife of Thomas
Caudill), and unnamed daughter wife of Wm MEEDS. Jacob Sr. died 1803 in
Pendleton Co.,SC leaving an unfinished will which does not name all of his
children; he was ill at the time and called for his friend to whom he told the
will; either he did not finish the will, the friend didn't remember everything
that was said, or most probably he had already given the older children, Aaron
who was already in KY, Jacob Jr., who had already moved to Edgefield Co., SC
and Thomas, their shares. The 1800 census shows one more male than is
accounted for, --could be another relative living in the household. Leadiwick
and Nathaniel are the two youngest sons. It appears that Jenny may not have
married. Aaron, Thomas, Leadiwick, Nathaniel, Thomas CAUDILL and Wm MEEDS all
remove to Warren Co., KY, with Thomas being in the part that became Edmonson
Co., in 1825; Leadiwick and Nathaniel move on to Sullivan Co.,IN. I further
conclude from the records found that William EARMEST SR. also found in
Spartanburg Co., SC with deeds that place him in the same neighborhood as
Jacob EARNEST and deeds found in 1799 & 1804 where he sells his property, then
he appears on the 1805 Logan Co., KY tax list; signs the marriage bonds of
Aaron's children after Aaron has died in 1814: has land transactions with
Leadiwick EARNEST; that he is a brother to Jacob EARNEST SR. They are
possible sons of Henry EARNEST, who died in Spartanburg Co., SC with a
daughter Rachel wo married William LINDSAY.
