My mother was Lacy Raleigh Turner from Breathitt County, KY. I hae traced her family back to the 1700s -- James Raleigh whose father was Enoch Raleigh. The only information I have been able to find on Enoch is that he was married to Ruth (no last name given) and that he died of yellow fever. Do you have anything more on this line?

I have genealogy information concerning the children of
James Raleigh and his wife Ann Lynch. Also, there is
evidence he was married to a lady named Risner. James
Raleigh had 10 children. Also, it is hard to determine
if his father was named Enoch. I will be glad to forward
you the info. I have on file. One of Jame's sons,
Jacob is the faher of my grandfather, Grenville
Raleigh.

Thanks. I would appreciate that very much.
I suspect that Enoch Raleigh might have been a nickname or a middle name since no one has been able to find any information on him.
My grandfather was Joe T. Raleigh, and his father was William Raleigh.
I love finding out all this information. I hope someone can solve the Enoch mystery one of these days.

I believe your grandfather Joe T. was married to Lizzie
Deaton. Here is some info. you are interested in pert. to
James Raleigh. He was born in 1795, Rockingham, NC. Died in 1853, Breathitt Cy. KY. He married Ann Kelly Lynch on Sep. 17, 1817, Wake County, NC. Ann was the dau. of John Lynch and she was born in NC 1795. They moved to Hawkins Cy
TN between 1820-25--from there they migrated to KY going from Harlan CY KY to Letcher Cy KY and finally to Breatitt
County KY in the 1840's. James also fought in the War of 1812-14 served with the lst Brigade, 8th CO. Hertford Regiment under Gen. Andrew Jackson. Their children:
William-b:1820; Mary Ann-b:1821; James-b:1824;Jacob-1827;
Rachel-b: 1828;John-born: 1834' Joseph-b: 1835; Martha-:b:1818; Nancy-b:1836; Elizabeth b: 1832. I also have their
death places and dates. Also, some records indicate not all
the children were born to Ann Lynch. but were born to perhaps his lst wife--Risner. Only name given. I have a
sheet showing which children belong to Ann and which toi
Risner. I have volumnes of Raleigh materials from James
all the way to the present time. Hope this helps you and if you need more info., maybe I should mail it to you.

Hi. My great-grandfather, Jesse Raleigh, and my grandfather, William (Willie) Raleigh were from Breathitt County, Kentucky. Part of the family came to Michigan in the 1930s. I know that there is a large family reunion/memorial held every summer in a cemetery in Breathitt County, but I haven't been.

Is this the same line? I would appreciate any information. Thanks.
