I am searching for my Driskill relatives from Kentucky. I am stuck at John W. Driskill who was age 36 in 1880 according to the census. Any help would be appreciated.

Driskill's from KY

My husband is a direct descendant of the Driskill's from KY. I have a John Wesley Driskill that was born 16 JUL 1845 that is close to the date you are looking for. I have additional information on that line of Driskill's that descend from William Driskill and hopefully the Dennis Driskill.

Hi Kathy! Re: John W. Driskill

I am so excited! We might have found something here! My John W. Driskill's dates are very close! I have copies of the census from 1880 and another one (I didn't write down the date smart huh?) Anyway there are a few Driskills on them. Joh W. Driskill's children were:
Eddie Driskill, William S. Driskill(age 9 in 1880), Malinda Driskill, Calvin Driskill (my gg grandfather), and Zella Ann Driskill.

Calvin Driskill had a son W.S. Driskill who was born 2 Aug 184, he was known as "Uncle Bill" and was married to an Elizabeth. He died 1 Aug 1922. They were from Livingston Co.

Well, I hope this helps and I'd like to give you my e-mail address if we end up being linked and we can share more info. Linda

Hi Kathy again an addition

I guess I should spellcheck before I submit, W.S.Driskill's birthdate is 2 Aug 1847 sorry! Also "Uncle Bill"'s brother is my great grandfather Joe Andrew Driskill from Smithland, Kentucky. Hope this helps, Linda

I think we are kinfolks!

Hi Linda,

I have included the line that my husband descends from. The next message, I'll see if I can get my software to sort and list what I have on your line.

I hope this helps.

William Samuel Driskill's line is completely missing from my genealogy. Please fill me in. I would love to add it to what I have already collected. If there is anything that you would like that I have, please let me know.

We are kinfolk!!!!!!!!

I could not believe my eyes when right before me I saw so many Driskills and saw my Mamaw Bessie's name in you genealogy!! I'm printing all of your info and I think my printer cartidge ran out of ink! Off to Walmart later for another! Anyway, I don't know if you have these other dates:

Rollie (my spelling) Hickman Driskill was married 24 Feb 1910.

Willie Love Driskill died (?) 19 May 1972

Bertie Violet Driskill was married 1 Nov 1920

Finis Marvin Driskill died 12 Aug 1903

Bessie Mae Driskill died 29 Jan 1978 and what is strange is that I had gone back to Paducah that summer after I had graduated from high school to do genealogy and she was still alive. She gave me all kinds of information on her brothers and sisters and really helped me out a lot. And then she died that January!! She died in Paducah.
I also went to several different cemetaries and I have pictures of relatives headstones so that's special.
I will look over the rest of the information and print it tomorrow (April 23) and then get back to you. Do you live in Paducah or in Kentucky?

My e-mail address is senseilinda@juno.com so you can write me back by my address if you want.

I forgot too that my Mamaw Bessie Driskill was married to a Webb Lantrip and that she remarried and she married a Boyce Driskill so he's got to be related somehow and isn't it weird that she married a Driskill?

My Grandmother was a Driskill and her fathers
name was Cameron but I didn't see him on
the list of Driskill's. Do you have any info
on him?
Thanks
Bob

Hi Kathy, well I finally printed all 13 wonderful pages of the Driskill genealogy you posted! But I am having a hard time reading some of it. I found my ggg grandfather Calvin Driskill and my gg grandfather Joe Andrew Driskill and my Mamaw Bessie Driskill on it and also lots of others that are related (duh!), anyway, who was Calvin Driskill's parents?
I'm sorry, but I couldn't follow all of the lines, some I could and some I couldn't.

Could you please help????

Thanks, Linda
If you want any blanks filled in I've got soe dates that weren't on the lists.
