John PARTNEY is the name I most commonly find. There are several. Any & All information will be greatly appreciated. I am also looking for a Margaret POLITE or some variation of spelling. The Surname of MASSON, is some how tied into the PARTNEY name, although, I cant seem to find where. My Great-Grandfather was born as John PARTNEY In Richwoods, Washington County, But died under the Name John MASSON, in Washington County. Any Information will be very appreciated. Many Thanks Krista.

Seeking any information on a man named Dunklin SWINNEY/SWEENEY, listed as head of household in the 1830 Washington County census. I am trying to determine if he would be kin to a Micajah SWINNEY/SWEENEY that supposedly married Sarah Margaret "Sally" Sullivan Dunklin, mother of Gov. Daniel Dunklin. Sarah married first, Joseph DUNKLIN, Jr. in Greenville, South Carolina and moved to Caldwell County, Ky. After Joseph's death, Sarah married a John McELROY on July 6, 1809 in Caldwell Co,Ky. The marriage is on record along with a prenuptial agreement between Sarah and John. According to the "Scrugg Genealogy" and "Register of the Sullivan Family", written by members of the Dunklin family, Sarah is said to have married a Micajah SWEENEY after Joseph's death, but no record has been found of this marriage. If anyone has any information on Dunklin SWEENEY/SWINNEY or Micajah SWEENEY/SWINNEY family, please contact me. Thanks, Paula Dunkliln
