Notes


John Anthony Gex

Biographical History of Nodaway and Atchison Counties Missouri 1901, Lewis Publishing Co. state that "When a young man, John A. Gex engaged in the mercantile business and in flatboating to New Orleans, but after his marriage has since given his attention to agricultural pursuits. He has always been one of the most prominent and influential citizens of his community and during the dark days of the Civil War was never molested by the southern sympathizers, being one of the few Kentuckians able to buy firearms in either Cincinnati or Louisville. Prior to the Civil War he owned many slaves, but was a strong Union man and took no part in the struggle. Some of his slaves were drafted, but he paid for their substitutes."

RESEARCHER: Hazel Mason Boyd (deceased) wrote T.Mason on 9 Jan 1965 from Mt. Sterling, KY. She type an article written by Harry W. Mills in Mt. Sterling Advocate. On the second page is the following:
The family data about Marquis Richardson, the Calmes, and Catlett's came from descendants: Miss Albert Young, now deceased; Mrs. John H. Oldham, N. Sycamore St., Mt. Sterling; the Turners. They say: Marquis Richardson, youngest son of William Richardson, b. 1720, was son of Joseph and Sarah (Thomas) Richardson. William Richardson married Henrietta Catlett, daughter of Robert and Mary Ann (Floyd) Catlett, 1789. They had much on the Virginia Catletts, who as you know were one of the prominent early families in Virginia.
The Catlett coat of arms was done by Miss Albert J. Young, a descendant who is now deceased, and you may have it if you want it.

Proved 26 Apr. 1622 upon oath of Elizabeth CATLETT, widow and relict and the Executrix named in the Will who was sworn to common form.

Comment by Timothy Field Beard: I have determined that the widow of John CATLET of Newington near Sittingbourne who died before 26 Apr 1622 was not the Elizabeth FRAUNCIS that he married in 1588, but another Elizabeth who was born about 1594. The last three children were by this wife. (Avant, p. 51).16
