  • Notes 

    • Hi Benjamin, re: your posting of the 1850 Bath Co. Ky. census, Yes Maria L. and John C.M. Ginter were the children of John and Mary Polly Oakley Ginter, they were taken in by their Aunt and Uncle William and Martha Freeland Oakley after the death of their mother and after their father John was killed. Maria was my GGgrandmother, who married Lafayette Ray (who was in the home of Edmund Oakley in this 1850 census), John C. M.Ginter was killed in the Civil War and as far as I have been able to find, never married. Caralyn
