The Baugh Family of Logan County, Kentucky, continued_________

returned to Kentucky where they are listed in the 1870 census in Covington Precinct, Warren County, Ky. In 1880 they are listed in Rockfield Precinct, Warren County, Ky. They had six children,18 all born in Missouri: John T., age twenty-two; E. T. (Edward Temple), nineteen; James C., sixteen; Harry C. (Clay), fourteen; Nancy E., twelve; and Joseph J. (Jefferson), eight. The four oldest sons are listed as workers and farmers; Nancy is listed “At School.” No occupation appears for Joseph.

In the 1850 census,19 Abraham G. Baugh III (age forty-six) and Rebecca (age fifty-two) are listed with their children: Elizabeth (middle initial may be a J.), age nineteen; Abraham G. IV, seventeen; and Martha Ann, twenty-four. John S. was listed as age twenty- two and a farm laborer with the Jesse Jones family,20 #367 in District 2, Logan County, Ky. In the 1860 census,21 A. G. Baugh III (age fifty-six) and Rebecca (age sixty-three) have their son John S, his wife Lucy, and their grandson Eugene living with them. In the 1870 census,22 John S, Lucy, Eugene B., Brunette

R., George R. L., and Edgar are listed as well as his parents, Abraham G. III (age sixty-six) and Rebecca (age seventy-five). Also listed with the family is Elijah Bledsoe (born in S.C.), his wife Sarah (born in Ky.), and three children (all born in Ky.); Elijah is listed as a farm laborer; Sarah as a cook. Great great grand- daughters Janet Baugh and Rochelle Hines believe the photo in Figure 1, which came from the home of granddaughter Susie Baugh Hines, is of Abraham G. Baugh III. Information on the back of the photo in- dicates that W. M. Bryan of Russellville, Ky. was the photographer. No date is given. The photo currently belongs to Rochelle Hines.

The 1850 Census of Slave Inhabitants in District No 1 of Logan County, Ky.23 lists A. G. Baugh III as having a male black slave, age eleven. The 1860 Census of Slave Inhabitants in District No. 1 in Lo- gan County, Ky., shows an A. G. Baugh III as having a black female slave, age twenty-four; a black male slave, age twenty; a mulatto female, age four; and a black female, age two.24

Research to this date has produced little informa- tion about Martha, the oldest child of Abraham III and Rebecca beyond the 1850 census where she is listed as twenty-four years of age. No marriage or death records exist in Logan County, Ky. that I have found. If anyone knows anything about her, please contact the author.

John S. Baugh (born 7 April 1828)25 (photo in Figure 2 believed to be John S.) who married Mary Barker 2 Sep. 185326 in Logan County, Ky. They had no issue. Mary died in 1873;27 we have found no annulment or divorce record in Logan County, Ky. He married Lucy Gillum, 15 Dec. 185528 in Logan County, Ky. The 1870 census lists four children. Birthdates come from the research of Mark Arslan.29

The map30 in Figure 3 shows the J. S. Baugh fam- ily living in the Schochoh (map uses an old spelling) District of Logan County, Ky., southeast of Rus- sellville near the Simpson County line. Janet Baugh thinks the family moved to Johnson County, Tx. about 1878, based on information in Lucy’s obituary and the birth of her grandfather, Verner Iona Baugh, in 1879 in Johnson County, Tx.
