GENERATION GAP
If you placed a young person of my grandchildren's generation in the
same room with someone from my grandparents' generation I'm not sure
they could even communicate!  I happened to marry a "Yankee" from New
York City and I have put them in stitches many times with the terms I
use that are common here, but unheard of there. Even though I don't use
the "hope" for help or "tote" for carry, I do often say "youngun" for
child and "pallet" for a blanket placed on the floor for a baby to
crawl
or lie on. Of course, I do remind them that the black stuff that comes
out of the ground and is used to extract fuel from is oil and not
"earl." It is kind of fun to compare the way things are said in
different parts of the country and world.

An Englishman, an Irishman, and a Scotsman were standing in a field
looking at a prize cow. The Englishman says, "Look at that fine English
cow."

"No, I think that's an Irish cow," said the Irishman.

The Scotsman shook his head. "You are both wrong. Obviously it is a
Scottish cow -- see it's got bagpipes underneath."

Eastern Kentucky References" by Jackson & Talley.

The Underwood Family

"The following articles are some of the accounts of the Underwood family, of Carter County, Kentucky, and their exploits during the 1870's.  Most of these articles are taken from the Vanceburg Courier."

The Vanceburg Courier - 20 June 1877

Carter County
GUERILLA WARFARE IN EASTERN KENTUCKY
Incidents of the Recent Battle
Vigilance Committees and Death

"We have a report from several gentlemen that there has been a battle fought between the forces of George W. Stamper and George Underwood, of notoriety
in the "late unpleasantness," in which four men were wounded or killed.  the advices are very unsatisfactory up to date, 9 o'clock, 18th inst.  However, enough has been ascertained to make it certain that a fight occurred between 25 men under Geo. Stamper, and about the same number probably under George Underwood, Sr., on Laurel, a tributary of Kinniconick, on Wednesday or Thursday of last week.  It seems that Stamper had some horses stolen, and that he organized a vigilance committee, after the war style of the Kentucky bushwhacker, and went in pursuit of the enemy, whom he found and opened fire
upon with some effect, wounding George Underwood, Sr., in the head, Alex. Pendland in the hips, a man named Martin in the head, and another man whose name our informant did now know, was shot through the body, and had not yet been found.  When last seen he was crawling on hands and knees into a brushwood.

Later advices say that there were some 70 men engaged on each side, among them the notorious George Underwood.  County Court is in session, today and
further advices from the seat of war are momentarily expected.

LATER.  We have just interviewed a gentleman from the seat of war, and he corroborates the statements of other parties, as given above.  No warrants have been issued for the arrest of the participants in the fight, and it is
said that the Underwood party desire to "fight it out on this line, if it takes all summer."

The Vanceburg Courier - 27 June 1877
The Kinney War
Further Particulars of the Events

"The shooting all took place in Carter County, on the Flat fork of Tygart. It seems there has been an old grudge existing between Stamper and the Underwood and Pendland families, and it also seems that the Stamper boys had raised a row with the Pendland family some time since, while they were attending to the burial service of their father, George Pendland, and that the row has been augmenting since until it culminated in the shooting of
Alex. Pendland, in his own house, by some of the Stamper party, who were concealed in the brush.  While Kenan Pendland was enroute for the doctor to attend his brother, Alex., he was fired upon from under the brush, as was
George Underwood, who was with him.  Mr. Underwood was wounded fatally. Pendland escaped, but he caught the wadding from the gun in his hand after it had struck him on the breast the ball passing over his head.  the
shooting was done with shot guns or muskets loaded with ball and shot.  It appears that the Stamper party did all the shooting, and that they went to he houses or concealed themselves in ambush and fired upon those for whom they felt in antipathy, after the gallant (?) style of bushwackers.  Two of the Stamper boys passed through Black Oak Bottom, endeavoring to escape to Ohio before the authorities had a chance to capture them.

JUNE 25 - Later reports by a gentleman from the seat of war says that Mr. George L. Underwood is fatally wounded, and that Alex. Pendland has been wounded a second time; that no hopes of his recovery are entertained.  It is
also reported that David Underwood is wounded.  Our informant says that no person in the neighborhood will tell who the prime movers are.  There about 40 men engaged in the fighting.  We understand that the Stamper boys have returned and are about "Plowing ground."

(----------torn off---------) the two Underwoods.  He says that Pendland is dead, and that George Underwood will not live.  It is understood that the Underwood family have telegraphed to the Black Hills for their brothers, who
are there."

The Vanceburg Courier - 4 July 1877
The Kinny - Carter War
"We understand that the first man shot in the late engagement on Kinny, was shot by a peddler, who found him engaged in attending to horses which did not belong to him.  It is said that, after he was wounded,  a doctor was called, to whom he told that he had been "snagged" but in probing the wound the doctor found a bullet, and asked, "How about this?" He replied that he had some bullets in his pocket, and thought the snag must have driven it into the wound,  all of this is very likely (?).  Several correspondents in the Greenup Independent state that horse thieves and honest men are the parties who are making war on each other.  It is said, by one correspondent, that over one hundred men in and around Olive Hill, are preparing to volunteer to clean out this den of thieves,  which has existed for years, and become a terror to honest citizens of this and other counties.  The law seems powerless, and the only remedy left is for the people to defend their rights,  person, and property.  We understand that peace is only to be made on condition  that the thieves desperse, and honest men's property is not to be meddled with hereafter.  Those harbouring thieves are classed as such, and must abide the consequences.  We have a report that "two honest men"
were shot while working in their cornfield.  These men were named Glover, and it was thought that they would aid the "militia" against the thieves. Two hundred open-rings and all the single-trees bought in the war district,
for the last five years, were found not long since, by a gentleman who bought out one who was "afraid to stay any longer in them parts."  The man who found them called in the neighbors, and they made a general distribution, each party getting the property belonging to him,  which had been stolen that last year or so ago."

The Vanceburg Courier - 11 July 1877
"The latest report from the Kinney-Carter war says that a man named Martin shot and killed William Timney, a young man of good character, who came to this state from Ohio sometime since.  It is also stated that six men have
been killed and nine wounded.  The famous Underwood brothers are reported at home, and to be engaged in the conflict.  A company of blue uniforms passed up on the Potomac, Sunday morning, enroute for the seat of war.  We may expect to hear of something interesting from that quarter soon.  Other companies are said to be coming to assist in quelling the disturbance.."

The Vanceburg Courier - 18 July 1877
"We glean from our exchange the following from the scene of the Carter War: The Covington Light Guards succeeded in capturing,  at the Underwood residence, the entire garrison, with the exception of Bill Underwood, who
escaped through the thick brush surrounding the place.  The names of the captured are as follows:  Old George Underwood, George Lewis Underwood, Ulysses Grant Underwood, John Underwood, three daughters and a
daughter-in-law of Old Underwood, a Negro woman and boy, and General Harlan Williams.  It is thought the prisoners will be taken to Maysville or Covington for safe-keeping, as it is known that several of the most daring
of the party are yet at large and will use every available means to recapture their comrades.  Later reports say that all of Holbrook and Stamper forces have surrendered and that all but three of the Underwood gang have been arrested.  No trouble is apprehended, unless they attempt to rescue the prisoners on the way to Grayson.  Capt. Wood telegraphs the Governor that everything is progressing nicely, as above stated, and the three of the Underwood's gang yet at large,  are to let him know tonight whether they will surrender or not."

The Vanceburg Courier - 25 July 1877
"We learn from two of our fellow-citizens, who live in the neighborhood of the scene of the late disturbance in Carter County, that it is generally believed out there that the worst trouble is yet to come.  With the exception of Old George Underwood, his son John and a Negro, who were
arrested by the Light Guards and are now in jail at Grayson, the entire band of outlaws are yet at large, in the vicinity of their homes, and so far from being subdued that, on Sunday night last,  they burned the barn of Mr. James Ray and a school-house, situated on the Jordon Fork of Buffalo.  Mr Ray had been run out of his field previously by two men of the name of Rayburn and Dyer, supposedly to be connected with the band.  Ray has been compelled to leave his crop on account of them, as they generally make good all threats, if possible.  The honest men of the section are still afraid to go to work in their crops, and many of them are hiding from the outlaws.  The burning
of the school-house was caused by trouble in the election of a trustee, some weeks previous.  The old man Underwood swore out writs for about 80 men of
that community after his arrest,  and they came forward and gave themselves up to the Light Guards, probably under the direction of the Sheriff; but as no evidence of guilt was produced, they were turned loose, and a company of volunteers, sixty in number, raised immediately to preserve order and arrest
the outlaws, if possible.  They are to be armed with sharp-shooting rifles by the State.  They seemed determined to break the gang.  The citizens were generally keeping quiet until the arms arrive, as they consider the enemy too strong and daring for any poorly armed force.  As they are all anxious to resume work in their crops, of course, the arrival of the arms are anxiously expected.  Many persons have been ascertained to be sympathizers of the gang, since these troubles arose, that were never before suspicioned. In justice to Bill Underwood, who was said (in our last) to have escaped through the brush at the time the old man was captured, we would add that our informers do not believe he was there, or that he is even in sympathy with them.  They think him an honest man.  This band, we are informed, have been the recipients of principally all the goods, horses, etc., that have been stolen in this section of the State for the fourteen years past."

The Vanceburg Courier - 15 August 1877
"The citizens of Carter who were participants in the late "unpleasantness" deem the matter only settled for a short time."

The Vanceburg Courier - 29 August 1877
"We learn that Mr. Stamper has recovered the horses for which the Carter War was inaugurated.  They were found on the Kentucky River, in the possession of John Martin, who turned them over to their owners."

The Vanceburg Courier - 12 September 1877
"We have just interviewed a gentleman who passed through the Carter War district, and he says that two men were shot at on last Thursday, and that the trouble is not over and never will be while those men are at large who
are engaged in the disturbance.  He seems to think that the Underwood family are not as gentle as lambs, and that it would take a whole regiment to capture them."

The Vanceburg Courier - 16 January 1878
SOME ACCOUNTS OF THE UNDERWOOD FAMILY
"In the fall of 1862, while Dirby Smith's army was in Kentucky, the Confederate soldiers under John Morgan burned and confiscated all property of the Underwood family; and chased them out of the state to Portsmouth,
Ohio; whereupon the older Underwood while at Portsmouth, told Dr. Steel that he intended to raise a company and regain what he had lost and interest
thereon.  Up to the time mentioned the family were considered good citizens. The company was raised and for its maneuvers during the war our soldiers are well acquainted.  The associations thus formed have led to the present deplorable conditions in that family.

It is reported that Jesse and Alf. Underwood, a short time after the Bath County difficulty, were on a horse-stealing expedition in some of the up-river counties, and that Jesse was shot through the back and captured. After remaining in jail some time, his brother, with a forged warrant, and
feigning to be the sheriff of Bath County, went to that jail and arrested Jesse, claiming that his presence was demanded in a Bath County court.  He brought him home and was sent further into the mountain, when a funeral
expedition with Jesse as the accredited corpse was inaugurated, and he was duly buried to order, but turned up some place in the West when next heard from.  He remained in the West until the Carter War of last spring again called him to defend the home of his father and his country, and it is supposed that the unerring missiles that sent several Carter County men to their long homes were directed by his hand.  He had no idea of getting into
trouble when he came to this city (Vanceburg), a few days ago.  He had just married and, with his wife had started west.  The man who was wounded with him is his father-in-law, and he and Vest were conducting Underwood and his
wife to the river.  In all probability, if he had been unmolested in this county would have been as free from the depredations of Jesse Underwood -------torn off-------.

Jesse Underwood was married on New Year's Day, 1878 to Miss McClure, Rowan County, a very handsome young lady, and well respected."

THE UNDERWOODS AGAIN
More Blood in Carter County
"Jesse Underwood has been absent from his home in Carter County, Kentucky, for a number of years, and has been following the calling of farmer in Iowa. The occasion of his leaving home, it is said, was the killing of a fellow
being, for which offense he had been indicted by the grand jury, and a reward of $1000 offered for his apprehension.

About three weeks ago he came back on a visit for the purpose of marrying a girl to whom he was engaged.  He was on his way with his bride and her sister, in a wagon driven by an old man, to take a steamer at Concord.
Sheriff Warder, being warned of this, summoned his deputy, a young man named Ruggles, together with additional reinforcements, and started in pursuit
with all speed.  He also deputized another posse to take passage on the Steamer Telegraph, and head off the fugitives at that point.  The understanding between the two pursuing parties was that the arrest should be
made at Concord, where Underwood could be surrounded with greater safety and secured.  Sheriff Warder and Deputy Ruggles accompanied the land force, and
kept carefully behind the Underwoods.  About one mile above Concord, upon making a sudden turn in a deep ravine, the Sheriff and his posse came unexpectedly upon the fugitives, the latter having stopped at a small creek
for the purpose of watering their horses.  When the Sheriff and his party came upon them, it was necessary for them to rein up their horses to prevent running over the people whom they were seeking.

Underwood had heard the approaching clatter of horses' hoofs, and was prepared for a meeting.  With a revolver in each hand he stepped in front of his party and called upon the pursuers to halt.

When the demand to surrender was made the fugitive pointed his revolver at the breast of Sheriff Warder, but before the trigger could be pulled, a ball from the weapon of one of the posse shattered the wrist.  Underwood aimed at Deputy Sheriff Ruggles with his other pistol and fired.  Young Ruggles fell from his horse with a ball through his breast. By this time, Sheriff Warder had secured an aim on the desperado's figure and lodged a charge of buckshot
in his right shoulder, thus disabling both arms.  Another discharge from a gun in the hands of one of the posse took effect in Underwood's hip.  At this time he turned and fled, and with the aid of the women, succeeded in making his escape.  He walked as far as the head of Brush Creek Island, where, in an exhausted and fainting condition, he asked permission to enter the house of Louis Ruggles.  The sight of a man in Underwood's condition was
a touching one to Mr. Ruggles, who is a relative of the young man killed by Underwood.  The murderer touched by the kindness of his host, and believing himself about to die, gasped out his name and particulars of the late bloody
work.  The women varified the story, and Mr. Ruggles felt it his duty to send word immediately to Sheriff Warder.

This he did, and the Sheriff and his posse soon put in an appearance.  They took charge of Underwood, and had him conveyed to Concord, his wife and sister-in-law accompanying him."

The Vanceburg Courier - 27 February 1878
"Mr. Jesse Underwood had a trial at Owingsville on the 16th inst. and was held over with bail fixed at $5000, which he was unable to give and was sent to Lexington jail for safe keeping."

The Vanceburg Courier - 6 March 1878
"Flemingsburg Rambler: Two most important cases will probably be tried at the approaching court in Bath County.  Stevens for the murder of Lewis Russell Jones and Underwood for taking the life of George Trumbo."

The Vanceburg Courier - 20 March 1878
"Jesse Underwood has been taken from the jail in Lexington and incarcerated at Owingsville, in default of $5000 bail."

Mt. Sterling Sentinel:  Jesse Underwood was brought to this place from the Lexington jail last Thursday (7th inst.) evening, under the charge of Deputy Sheriff Smoot, of Bath County, and W. B. Nesbitt, W. W. Perry, and James
Stone, as guards.  Friday morning he was taken to Owingsville and will probably be tried this week.  The feeling in Bath is not as bitter against him as it was some years since, many looking upon the killing of Trumbo as
one of those unfortunate occurrences growing out of the war through which the country had just passed, which were of such common occurrence during 1865.  The old saw "Give a dog a bad name and hang him," will doubtless cut
an extensive figure in this case.  The Underwood name was a terror through-out the mountains of eastern Kentucky during the war, and for some years following its close, and many dark deeds were perpetrated which were
laid at the Underwood door, and of which they were, in all probability, innocent.  While this may be the case, there is no denying the fact - for fact it is - that they were a bold, bad set of men, who, not being checked by any human laws, gave full play to passions which were partly the result of education and association, mixed considerably with a natural proneness to evil."

David C. and John Underwood were in town on Monday last, and state that Jesse will be out  on $5000 bail in a few days, and will visit his friends (if any) in Vanceburg. "

NOTES By AUTHORS:
The Federal Mortality Census for Carter County, Kentucky, taken in 1990, lists several deaths of the Underwood family.  In the Olive Hill precinct, Everton Underwood, age 45, had been shot from ambush.  The statistics say
that he and his parents were born in Virginia and that he had lived in Carter County for thirty-eight years.  He was shot in the month of May.

In precinct No. 4, the following deaths had occurred before 31 May 1880: (1) Elvis Underwood, age 40, born Kentucky, father born Virginia, mother born Virginia, a farmer, died in May; shot; lived in Carter County 20 years.
(2) George L. Underwood, age 38, born Kentucky; father and mother born Virginia; farmer; died in September (1879?) gun shot wound, lived in county 20 years.
(3) Jesse Underwood, age 35, born Kentucky; father and mother born Virginia; roving; shot; died October (1879?); lived in county for 30 years.
(4) George W. Underwood, age 65, born Virginia; father and mother born Virginia; farmer, died October (1879?); shot; lived in county 40 years.

The census taker in Carter County wrote the following:
"No Underwood family's Here June 1, 1880 of which the above belonged.  They having moved West in the Spring."
"The Underwood families have all moved out so I leave them with out any specific no. as they don't appear on the population schedule." "They comprised a portion of the family of the notorious Jesse. By their actions of which the country has read so much.  All engendered the animosity
of others and were finally overpowered."
"Had to gather statistics concerning them from neighbors."
F. M. Wilcox

(All of the following in the chapter on Lewis County, Ky in the book)


The Underwood Gang
" On January 7, 1878, Jesse Underwood, the Carter County outlaw, came through Lewis County and was pursued by Sheriff, Hiram T. Warder, and his deputy, John Ruggles, and their posse.  Near Concord, the sheriff and his
posse caught up with the Underwoods and Jesse Underwood shot Ruggles, killing him on the spot.  The following articles from the Old Vanceburg Courier tell of this incident and the subsequent criticism which Sheriff
Warder suffered following the affair.

The Vanceburg Courier - 16 January 1878
Capture of Jesse Underwood
Death of John Ruggless
Narrow Escape of H. T. Warder, Sheriff of Lewis County

"On Monday, 7th inst., it was reported that Jesse Underwood and some other party were in Lewis County on a horse stealing expedition, and immediately
Sheriff Warder and posse started in pursuit from this place; but this proved to be only rumor, and just at the time the Sheriff started up Second Street in search of him,  Underwood made his appearance at Mr. Hisey's on Third
Street, and entered the house and told Mrs. Hisey that he and wife had started to the West, and as an old acquaintance, had come to bid them farewell.  Mrs. Hisey, knowing that Warder was searching for Underwood, was
frightened so as to be almost speechless, fearing a collision in her house, she told Underwood that they were looking for him.  He remarked that he would not be taken, and then inquired for the Concord road and departed.
Mr. Hisey, who was absent from the house, was informed by a domestic that Jesse Underwood was in the house; but he doubted the truth of it, when the girl so emphatically declared that it was true that he concluded to tell the
County Judge before he returned to his house.  He did so, and by the time he returned the conversation between Mrs. Hisey and Underwood had transpired, and he had flown.  Upon hearing Mr. Hisey's report, a man was started in
pursuit of Sheriff Warder, who had at this time gone considerable distance up the river road.  The Sheriff was overhauled about five miles above town, and immediately returned to pursue Underwood.  Himself and party, consisting of A. O. Watkins, John Ruggless, and James Cooper, had determined to pursue the party to Concord, where they were expected to take a boat, and capture
them there. The Underwood party consisted of Jesse Underwood, his wife and sister-in-law, a man named McClure and one named Vest.  They left this place
in a two horse spring wagon, which they had deserted before they were overtaken by the Sheriff's posse.

THE FIGHT
The Sheriff had inquired of the citizens how far ahead the other party were and being told that they had at least an hour's start on them toward Concord, whither a messenger had been sent to detain the boat until he arrived. But just as they rode into a dark hollow near Mr. Riggs' farm above
Concord, they came upon the party, who were ready to receive them.  Not being sure this was the party he sought, (the wagon not accompanying it), Mr. Warder commanded them to surrender, whereupon Jesse Underwood, who was standing between the horses of the party, fired twice with a small revolver, but did not hurt anyone.  The Sheriff's posse had by this time come close
upon him and he passed from between the horses by Mr. Al. Watkins, where he confronted John Ruggless, who had been speaking of his having pistols, warning the party; and taking him to be the officer, he fired, the shot taking effect in Ruggless' breast, killing him in a few seconds; not,
however, until he discharged his gun, the load of which took effect in the side of McClure of the Underwood party.  About the same time Sheriff Warder lodged a load of buckshot in the back and shoulder of Underwood, who had a pistol in each hand; one of which he snapped in Warder's face as he passed out from the horses.  Underwood was also fired on by Mr. Watkins, whose shot struck him in the wrist, causing him to drop one of his pistols.  He then
attempted to run and was fired upon by Sheriff Warder, and struck in the belt around his waist.  He, however, continued to run, and in the darkness escaped to a school-house near by, under which he concealed himself for a
time.  The Sheriff and party had by this time discharged their shooting irons, and discovered that Ruggless was dead.  They, therefore, handcuffed the two men they had captured, and with the women of the Underwood party,
started to the house of Esquire Parker.  After moving a short distance Mr. Watkins returned to the scene of  action to get the gun belonging to John Ruggless, deceased, and Underwood has since informed him that he had a dead
aim on him, but thought best not to fire, for which Mr. Watkins says he is very thankful.  While the sheriff had gone to Esquire Parker's, Underwood came out from under the school house and made search for this hat.  Not
finding it, he took the hat of the dead man, and made his way to the houses of Mr. Lewis Ruggless. He told Mr. Ruggless that he was Jesse Underwood, that he had got into a little scrape and was badly wounded, and wished to
surrender himself to the authorities of the county.  A man was dispatched to Parker's, and the Sheriff's posse soon arrived and took him in charge. Underwood was conveyed to Concord, and thence in a boat to this place, where
he awaits the progress of time to unfold what will next happen in his eventful life.  The other wounded man was left at Esquire Parker's where he remained at last account, unable to be moved.  Underwood's wife is here with
him, attending to his wounds.  Vest and the other lady returned to their home.
________________________________________________________________________
Mrs. McClure, wife of the man of that name, who was wounded in the late encounter with Jesse Underwood, made her appearance here last Saturday, and went hence to Esquire Parker's to attend to her husband, who is still there, a sufferer from the wound he received.  She is an intelligent looking lady of middle age, and seemed to bear the news of her husband's misfortune with considerable fortitude, although she seemed determined not to be detained here if it was possible for her to proceed.  Through the favor of the physicians attendant on Jesse Underwood, she was sent on immediately.  Mr. William Underwood came in with Mrs. McClure, to see his wounded brother, and was, on last Sunday admitted to see him.  We do not know whether he saw him on Saturday."

________________________________________________________________________
"We had an interview with Mr. Jesse Underwood on last Saturday, and he appeared to be doing quite well, and to be in good spirits.  We read our report of his recent engagement with the sheriff to him, and he said that,
in some particulars, it was incorrect, and promised to give us a statement for publication next week.  He said that there need be no apprehensions of his friends coming to rescue him, as he considered himself safe in case he
should have a trial.  He further said that he should tell his friends to go home, even if they should come to take him away.  He expresses his regret of the sad termination of the events chronicled in this paper, and deemed that
the Sheriff did him injustice in attempting to arrest him when he was not under indictment, and quietly journeying from the State to a place where he could live in peace."

Portsmouth Times - 19 January 1878
"Deputy Sheriff John Ruggless, who was shot and killed by Jesse Underwood at
Vanceburg last week, was a relative of Judge Pollitt, of this city
(Portsmouth)."

The Vanceburg Courier - 16 January 1878
"A correspondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer says: "Sheriff Warder telegraphed to the Governor that he had Jesse Underwood, for whose capture there had been a reward offered, as a prisoner in the Lewis Jail, to which the following reply was received: "Hiram T. Warder:  I am not able to find any reward in force on Executive Journal for Jesse Underwood. Thos. S. Bronston Ass't Secretary of State." "The Sheriff informed us that he has several times been threatened with death by Underwood's friends."

Thanks for your reply and more pieces to add to the Ramey puzzle. Check out the ancestry of Nellie Remy/Ramey. If you see any errors in this pls. let me know. Note that her father had moved west.
My line splits at William b. 1672 and comes thru Va. to West Va. I've become very interested in all Ramey lines and even found a line from my mother to a Ramey in her lineage in Ky.
If I can help with any Ramey info pls. let me know. Tony Ramey

Ruben McGinnis, b. 22 November 1821, Greenup County, Kentucky, USA, d. 03 March 1913, McDowell Creek, Lewis County, Kentucky, USA, m. 25 December 1843, Greenup County, Kentucky, Martha Patsy Caroline Black, b. 14 May 1828, Mud Lick (Paintsville), Johnson County, Kentucky, USA
Cite on Ruben: Ruben was a farmer and also worked at Boone furnace.  While serving the home guard on Tygart's Creek during the Civil War he recalled how his group once accidently shot and killed a 14 year old boy.  With heavy hearts they had to bare the boy home to a sorrowful mother.  In 1869 he sold his farm at Gesling with plans to join the migration west to Missouri or Arkansas.  After a visit however, he changed his mind as the "fever" was rampant there and he feared for his family.  Instead he and his son Bill bought another farm on McDowell Creek.  In the 1850 Carter County Census records show that Ruben held real estae valued at 300.00.  The 1850 census also shows that living in Ruben's household were a John McGinnis, age 73 born in Maryland and a Rebecca McGinnis, age 65 born South Carolina.  Presumably, John is a brother to William McGinnis, ruben's father, making John and Rebecca, Ruben's aunt and uncle.

Cite: Bill was a sergeant in the 40th Kentucky at age 18.  He was slightly wounded in the leg in one engagement but the low point for him came when his cousin, whom he had enlisted with, was stricken with typhoid.  Bill was assigned to take him home and they got as far as the home of the notorious Underwoods and they boy could go no further.  The Underwoods took them in and did what they could, but the boy died.  Bill alway had a high regard for the Underwoods after that, in spite of their reputation.  He and Matilda farmed on Smith Creek, Carter County, Kentucky, USA.

Cite on David McGinnis:David McGinnis and his brother Benjamin bought a tract of land up on Tygart's Creek.  It was part of the Canifax land grant which extended several miles along Tygert's Creek.  The upper end of the land was the best because there was more bottom land, so they drew straws for the better half and Benjamin was the winner.

The Canifax grant was an old settlement and had been well developed.  A government whiskey still stood on the upper end of the property adn there was a grocery store where the whiskey was sold.  Being slave owners, much farming was done.  They probably raised their own corn for the still. 

The slave cabins stood at the foot of the hill back of where William, son of Benjamin, would later build his home.  The old rock walled spring can still be seen and still affords water.  Alma Glore, in 1994, said she could remember the old rail fence that was built along the section of land where the slave cabins had stood.

From the book Westmoreland County and the American Revolution, by Paul Myers, published by Clossen Press, 1935 Sampson Drive, Apollo, PA, copyright 1988, IBSN#1-55856-001-7 comes this bit of information:
" Westmoreland County Frontier Rangers"
When nearly daily border depredations by Indians began in 1777, many young men chose to join small ranging companies in preference to the militia or to entering the regular service.  These ranging companies were composed of men who lived cosest to each ranger captain.  During the years 1778-1783 the following men were a few of the most prominent captains in the ranging service: James Guthrie, Thomas Stokely, Matthew Jack, Michael Huffnagle, James Smith, Joseph Erwin, William Cooper, Samuel Shannon, Samuel Brady, Van Swearingen, _________ Wallace, the Barrs, Col. Wilson, the Brownlees, and the Shaws.

The men mved about Westmoreland County in small parties, generally under a single officer, seeking out maurading bands of Indian warriors who were conducting forays south and east of the Allegheny River.  Rangers dressed in homespun, and carried their own rifles, knives and hatchets.  They could be characterized as "minute men of the frontier," always ready to hasten together for a mission when an alarm was given.  It was their duty to alert settlers when an attack had been made or was anticipated, and they were obliged to escort women and children to a place of safety.  As the conflict continued, these men continued, these men becamse so expert in this manner of warfare that their natural senses became so highly developed that they could travel by night like an animal and could distinguish sounds of danger which were unheard by others.  They could endure lack of food and long forced marches, becoming agile and swift of foot, as well as deadly with their weapons.

The following list of Westmoreland County rangers and their officers has been abstracted from undated rosters previously publish in the Pennsylvania Archives.  These names appear to be the only surviving records of the men who served in the ranging companies.  Names listed appear to be those who lived under Westmoreland County jurisdiction east of the Monongahela River, between the years 1778-1783.  The names of over 3,300 rangers are listed.  Washington County was organized on March 28th, 1781, from "Old Westmoreland County."  It is believed that the researchers who prepared the lists of the rangers of publication in the Pennsylvania Archives during the last century were able to distinguish from the extant records those individuals who, prior to 1781, lived in what was to become Washington County, west of the Monogahela River, Washington County has a list of 1,600 rangers to her credit as well."

Francis McGinnis is listed among those Westmoreland County men who were in either the Militia or the Rangers and had enough time in service to qualify for deprecation pay, Series 5, Vol.4.

Francis McGinnis is also listed The Westmoreland County Soldiers of the Revolution. 

Rebecca Jane is buried in the River Hills Cemetery, Spencer, Owen County, Indiana.

William McGinnis of Greenup County, Kentucky

Homer E. Baker (I met him a few times before he passed away), (1326 Walnut St., Greenup, KY 41444) has provided the following transcriptions of the application for pension of his great-great grandfather, William McGinnis, veteran of the War of 1812.  Many of the descendants of William McGinnis are living in Greenup, Carter and Lewis counties, Kentucky, according to Mr. Baker, who has also provided the data of William and Jane Brown McGinnis and family.
