Does anyone around the Morganfield-Grove Center area remember a fellow that was called "Eek" HOOPER? Have heard stories about "Eek" but can't seem to find a given name.

Isaac died in in 1859 and Nancy died in 1909. Can you help in these matters.

ADAMS, ASHBY, CLAYTON, SLATON posted by Russell Ward Adams on Thursday, April 24, 1997

Searching for Ancestral Birthplace of Samuel ADAMS, father of Thomas ADAMS my 4th Greatgr. 1st Sheriff of Hopkins County 1806. Thomas ADAMS b1772. I have complete genealogy of Thomas' Mother (Anne ADAMS daughter of William and Mary ADAMS of Mercer County) Thomas' Wife Elizabeth Ann ASHBY1 and children, and line of son William ADAMS & AMP; Susanna F. SLATON m. 1836, Thomas Edmond ADAMS 7 amp; Elizabeth Ann ASHBY2 1864 ... Henry? ADAMS m. Nancy Anne CLAYTON 1882, and my grandfather Henry Clayton ADAMS. Samuel is believed to have been born near Caven Ireland 1742 and immigrated to Botertourt County, Va 1758. Married Anna ADAMS, daughter of William and Mary ADAMS, moved to the banks of the Salt River in Mercer County with the ASHBYs, and later settled near Hopkins supposedly at the Green River north of Onton, Ky. Samuel should be of the ADAMS of Monoghan or Cavan, and therefore descendant of the ADAMS Family, of the Gordon Clan of Scotland, whose people immigrated to Ireland near 1600.

Louis INGRAM married Mary ANDERSON in 1898 in Henderson Co. The 1900 census shows her as a daughter of Sarah BENNINGTON. I don't believe the Bennington name is correct; that it should be Pennington, Berrington, or something else. Can anyone verify this?
