I am searching for the families of the following:
Cora Stuart Pendleton
b.abt 1877, m Rev. Robert Pendleton on24 Dec 1898 in Gordonsville, Logan CO, KY, died before 1910. Children were Lawrence and Ernest Pendleton, b. 1904 and 1906.
Possible parents for Cora are
Aaron and Amanda Stewart
Aaron b. 16 Aug 1848 in Missouri, m. ab 1870 probably Christian Co. KY, died 11 April 1916, Christian Co. KY.
Robert remarried twice – to Katie and Lizzie. Any church affiliation for Rev. Robert Pendleton?? ANY information?

I am searching for the families of the following:
Geneva Dunkerson Pendleton
b. 7 Dec 1906 Christian Co., KY
m.Lawrence Pendleton abt 1928
d. 29 Sep. 1994
Parents of Geneva were
Della Dunkerson and probably John Dunkerson
Della was the daughter of Charles Dunkerson (not 100% certain) and Emma McCarty
Charles’ parents were Andrew and Sarah/Sallie Dunkerson,
Emma’s parents were Dan McCarty and Agnes Boyd.
Andrew, Sarah, Dan and Agnes were all born into slavery and emancipated. Andrew was born in Virginia, as were some of these people’s parents. I have been able to trace Agnes Boyd’s grandmother, also Agnes Boyd, to Virgina, where she was b. in 1878. These families came to KY as slaves. They most likely adopted the slave owners’ names after emancipation. I am particularly stuck, with finding the father of Geneva Dunkerson and would appreciate ANY help and/or suggestions with him, as well as any information at all on this family. I am happy to share my information as well.
