Thomas was a Tailor/Teacher/Publican.spouse: Rowell, Mary
On February 23 1669/70, Thomas sailed from Bristol, England as a servant bonded to Grace Smith who had indentured him for an unknown resident of Amesbury, MA. In March of 1672/73, he was cited for a morals offense (at the age of 23) with 24-year-old Mary Rowell. He was sentenced to be whipped 15 stripes unless he paid a fine of L4 and she was to be whipped 10 stripes un less she paid a fine of four shillings. Six months later, on September 18, 1673, Thomas and Mary were married.
On October 30, 1677, Thomas was fined for wagering Samuel Weed, who was drunk, to kiss the minister's wife. Two months later he took the oath of allegiance and in 1680, he was a member of the train band. In July of 1678, he reneged on a note to deliver 4,000 hogshead staves to a local cooper, John March. In 1681/82, Thomas was designated a tailor as well as an innkeeper along with his brother-in-law, Phillip Rowell.
In June of 1683, Thomas and Mary sold their house in Amesbury and moved, probably to some other settlement along the Merrimack River. Three years later, they brought their eldest son back to Amesbury to be buried. Six years later (1692) they resettled in Amesbury and bought 10 acres of land.
In 1693, Thomas was named schoolmaster, a position he held for 14 years. In 1707, he became a full-time innkeeper with Phillip Rowell and sold 30 acres of his wife's dower land. On May 26, 1708, he sold more of his wife's inheritance and was again designated a tailor. By now, he and Mary were 68 years old and they left Amesbury. There are no further records of them, but it is thought they moved to Pennsylvania with their sons, John and James.
William was a farmer.spouse: Gibson, Sarah
About 1783 he went to Kentucky with his cousin Jeremiah. Moved to Tennessee about 1800, along with some of his cousin John's family.

Fleming County, Kentucky, Marriage Register B, page 87 lists marriage date to Elizabeth Hurst as 17 August 1835 by Richard Corwine with Aaron Gardner, Sr. as bondsman. Bond for marriage also is dated 17 August 1835 as researched by Caren Prater of Flemingsburg.
Aaron and wife Elizabeth are named in a deed record, along with other heirs of Aaron Gardner, Sr. deceased, for 116 acres of land conveyed to William Hurst (Fleming County Deed Book 31, page 205, 7 Oct 1853, recorded 22 Oct 1853).
Aaron and wife Elizabeth are named in a judgment (along with other heirs of Aaron Gardner, Sr. deceased) obtained by William Hurst, April 1854 Fleming County Circuit Court, file #11731. Jefferson County, Kansas, records his marriage to Elizabeth Denman, 61 years old, 19 January 1881, by L. D. Price, M.E. minister. Subsequent records give place of marriage as home of the bride in Oskaloosa. On 17 March 1884 Aaron filed a petition for divorce. According to a deposition taken from Aaron on 23 April 1884 in Fleming County, Kentucky by N. F. Hurst, JP, at Poplar Plains, he was abandoned by Elizabeth when she learned he was not so will "fixed" financially as she had been advised. Elizabeth apparently never responded to any Jefferson County Court summons, nor contested the action. A divorce was apparently granted in May, 1884 term of court although the actual decree has not been found. The above mentioned deposition is signed by Aaron in his own handwriting.
Fleming County, Kentucky, Marriage Register 4, page 376 records the application for a Marriage License by Aaron Gardner and D.R.E. Staggs for Emily Jones (could D.R.E. Staggs be her brother or father?), and on page 377 is the Return of A.P. Hurst stating he legally solemnized the marriage 10 Jun 1884 at her Fleming County residence in the presence of Sam'l Hiner and David E. Staggs.
Marriage Book P at page 96 shows a Marriage Bond with D.R.E. Staggs as surety dated 5 Jun 1884. This document contains the actual signature of Aaron Gardner. Data for Aaron: Residence, Fleming County; born, Fleming County; age 67; number of marriages, third; occupation, farmer; father's birth, New Jersey; mother's birth, New Jersey. Data for Emily: Residence, Fleming County; born, Fleming County; age 54; number of marriages, second; father's birth, Fleming County; mother's birth, Fleming County. Bondsman: D.R.E. Staggs (signs, David E. Staggs). County Clerk, A.H. Evans.
Marriage Box P contains Marriage License and Marriage Certificate. License date is 5 June 1884 and marriage date is 10 June 1884 to Emily Jones. (From CDS)
Son of Joniah Gardiner. Married 23 DEC 1807 to Annis Husk per Inez Allred of Salt Lake City, Utah; however, Glenn Carpenter of Mayslick, Kentucky claims 24 Dec 1807 to Agnes HUSK with Wm. Crim bondsman (the HUSK is probably Hurst per Don D. Adams of Paris, Kentucky). Marriage is also listed on the Family Tree Maker KY Marriage Index CD # 229 Anthony Garnder and Agnes Hush(Hurst) 24 Dec 1807 Fleming Co Ky.spouse: Hurst, Agatha (1794 - 1831)
See also LDS IGI pages 4697 + 5781, Kentucky. Wallace Gardner/Lora Ashby show 24 Dec 1807 to Agnes Husk. Anthony was living in 1834. Anthony and Agnes were early (1820-1832) landowners in Rush County, IN
(Deed Book B, page 268, from "Rush County, Indiana, Early Landowners" by Maurice Holmes, page 14). See also "Rush County, Indiana, Original Landowners" by Maurice Holmes, page 10, where purchase was made from the government April 1, 1825.
Judy Groover Johnson of Lafayette, Indiana, reports finding Anthony age 40-50 in the 1830 Rush County, Indiana Census living with his large family.
James + Phoebe (Gardner) Hurst named a son born 13 Apr 1810, Anthony Hurst, probably after this Anthony Gardner who was Phoebe's brother and who married James' sister Agnes Hurst.
Anthony sold 40 acres in Rush County, IN (NE 1/4 SE, 1-13-8 [13 =Walker Township], and 39 acres in Rush County (NW 1/4 NW, 6-13-9) to Reuben Heflin for $600. The deed date was 10 Dec 1838; the transfer date was 25 Jan 1841 (Book L, page 267). This land sale information is from a Judy Groover Johnson letter of 22 Feb 1994.
In a later letter dated 27 Aug 1995 Judy states that she has found Civil War records of an Anthony Gardner who was mustered in 13 Dec 1861 and died 7 Dec 1863. She believes this could be Anthony age 6 living in the Wm. B. Heflin household of the 1850 Rush County, Indiana census report, page 452. He would not be Anthony, son of Joniah Gardiner, Sr. but perhaps a grandson or even Anthony, Jr. (From CDS)

Beeri Christy Glass, Farmer and Capitalist, was born December 4, 1804, six miles from Georgetown in Scott County, Kentucky, and died at his home in Georgetown, June 20, 1874. His father, William Glass, was a native of Pennsylvania, emigrated to Kentucky at an early day, and became one of the most substantial and successful farmers of Scott County. Beeri C. Glass received a good education in the best schools and academies then existing in his native county, and made his first step in life as a teacher; although he probably taught school at intervals for several years, it does not appear that he had any design of pursuing that avocation as a profession. January 20, 1846, he was appointed agent of the McCracken Fund. He resided on his father's farm until 1847, and was actively engaged with him in the various interests of the place. Under the old State Constitution, he was several years Sheriff of Scott County, but had little desire for political position. In 1847 he removed to Georgetown, where he continued to reside during his life. May 17, 1848, he was appointed one of the commissioners to lay out Scott County into eight election precincts. November 19, 1849, he was appointed County Treasurer. He was one of the founders of the Farmers' Bank of Georgetown and remained in its directory until his death. He had accumulated considerable means, having been remarkably successful in everything he undertook with earnestness, before settling in Georgetown, and mainly occupied his time for years in loaning and speculation on his capital. His name was associated with all the important interests of his community. He contributed largely to the organization and building of Georgetown College, and was one of its most active managing trustees, and was connected with the Board of Trustees during his life. He was a leader in every movement of advantage to the town, and was one of its most active, influential, and successful business men. In politics, he was always a Democrat; had strong convictions and adhered to them at all hazard, but was courteous and deferential when any personal feeling of principal of individual honor was involved. When the civil war broke out, he espoused the cause of the South, and, had his health and age permitted, would have entered the army in defense of his principles. In 1852 he united with the Baptist Church and, until his health and hearing failed, he was one of its most active and valuable members. On November 15, 1858, he resigned both the agency of the McCracken Fund and the office of County Treasurer. He was one of the Trustees of Georgetown for several years, and held various positions of trust in the community; lived an exemplary, active life, was open hearted and charitable; started out in life a poor boy, and, by superior judgment, business ability, and unyielding perseverance, succeeded, mainly unaided, in accumulating a fortune. He was a man of fine habits; of strong, sympathetic nature; was strongly devoted to his family; was a man of fine sentiment and feeling, which he displayed liberally in his home and in his personal friendships; and died universally regretted and respected, leaving the world better by his having lived in it. Mr. Glass was married in 1847, to Miss Margaret A. Kenny, daughter of Joseph B. Kenney, a prominent citizen of Georgetown, a lady of great personal and social worth, who still survives him. Their only child, Victor Kenney Glass, married Miss Bettie Force, of Georgetown and resides in that place.
VICTOR KENNY GLASS, Farmer, P. O. Georgetown, son of B. C. Glass, Esq., whose life is sketched in the preceding biography, was born July 18, 1848, near the city of Georgetown, Ky. He received a collegiate education; began life as a farmer; was married January 24, 1867, to Bettie Force, who was born in Scott County, Ky., in 1849, daughter of A. W. Force, of Henry County, Ky., and Martha (Beaty) Force, who was born in Scott County. Mr. and Mrs. Glass have been blessed with four children--J. Force, George, Augustine and Bettie. Mr. Glass continues to engage in farming, and has held no political offices, though taking an active part in politics. He is a member of the Presbyterian Church, a Freemason and a Democrat.spouse: Force, Bettie (1849 - )

HARVEY C. GRAVES, retired; P. O. Georgetown; was born in Fayette County, Ky., Feb. 19, 1804. The Graves family claim a French origin, and, although the time of their arrival in America is a matter of conjecture, long before the Revolutionary war they were residents of Virginia. His father, John Graves, was born in Virginia, and while quite a young man came to Kentucky locating in what was then Fayette County. He afterward returned to Virginia, married, and brought his young wife to his new home in the wilderness, and, in all the conflicts with the Indians, and the trials and sufferings of the early settlements, he took an active part. During the war of 1812, he was appointed commander of a Company of militia, and, in various ways, was an influential and valuable man in the early history of that part of the State. Harvey C. Graves was the fourth in a family of seven children, and, although his father has acquired some means, and was the owner of a fine tract of land in the best part of the State, he grew to manhood on his father's farm without opportunities for more than ordinary education. He early took an active interest in public affairs, and being a man of fine natural ability and superior judgment, he became of great service to his county, especially in building up the various interests of Georgetown, where his counsels have been felt throughout a long life. He was one of the movers in the establishment of the Georgetown College, and not only made a donation for that purpose, but gave his influence toward building it up, and served as one of its trustees for several years. He was one of the projectors of the "Farmers Bank" of Georgetown, and has been a member of its director since its organization. At the organization of the Warrendale Female Seminary, he was elected one of the Board of Trustees, and has since held that position. He has been an extensive farmer and stock raiser of Scott County, and was for many years the largest hemp grower in his part of the country. In politics, he was a member of the Whig party, and stood by the Union throughout the dark days of the rebellion. Lately, he has been identified with the Democratic party. For many years he has been an elder in the Christian Church, and has, during his entire life, been one of the most active and valuable men in his community, and, by an active, successful, public-spirited, unselfish life, he has made the world better for his having lived in it. Mr. Graves was married in1 1829, to Miss Lucinda Garth, daughter of John Garth, of Scott County; and after her death, was married again in 1837, to Miss Martha R. Crockett, daughter of N. Crockett, of Fayette County. They have two children, Elenora, wife of James H. Kenney, of Georgetown; and Isadora, wife of John W. Berkley, of Lexington.spouse: Garth, Lucinda
