    Mt. Hope Church Cemetery in Battletown, KY; Find A Grave Memorial# 12340669

    This Methodist church was erected in the 1950s. The cemetery has graves dating back to early 1800s. As of 12/2005, 118 of the stones were readable and transcribed by Ron Yates and Lisa Hardin. About 40 graves were only marked with a field stone. Located in Meade County on Route 1047 just off of Route 228. It is in Big Bend, almost 17 miles on the left once you turn onto Route 228 from Route 448. This cemetery is important to those interested in Meade County, KY and Crawford County, IN history. The Big Bend of the Ohio River was accessible by boat and travel was common between this area and Leavenworth, IN. Our oral family history reflects that day trips from Leavenworth over to Big Bend for picnics and recreation was something to look forward to.

    Those list members interested in Yates & Roberson families know that both of these families migrated in the early 1800's from Barren County, KY eventually to Crawford County, IN. Two Roberson brothers married Barren County, KY Yates sisters. Daniel and Esther Roberson paused or lived in Meade County at some point in this migration as their youngest child, Samuel was born in 1821 and Daniel died and was reported as being buried in the Mt. Hope Cemetery. Daniel's widow, Esther and Benjamin & Sarah Roberson and children concluded their migration to Crawford County. The pieces are still being pieced together but it would appear that Daniel's family primarily resided in the English, IN area and Benjamin & Sarah Yates Roberson resided in the Grantsburg, IN area. All corrections and any additions that can be offered to this understanding is highly desired.

    Mt. Hope is a very pleasant cemetery to visit and has very old as well as 2005 internments. The stories told by the headstones are classic and reflect the hardships of life. One monument was erected by the friends of someone murdered nearby. Clayton McMichen is also buried at Mt. Hope. Clayton McMichen became one of the most successful and respected fiddlers to gain experience and exposure at the Georgia Old-Time Fiddlers' Conventions, held in Atlanta from 1913 to 1935. McMichen was born on January 26, 1900, at Allatoona, in Cobb County. He died in Battletown, Kentucky, on January 3, 1970.

    Daniel married Esther Ada Yates in 1803 in Green. Esther (daughter of John Yates, Sr.) was born in 1785 in Maryland; died about 1861 in Crawford, Indiana; was buried in Crawford, Indiana. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    The 1st child of John Yates, his son Robert Yates has been noted as being born in Barren Co., Kentucky in 1783. Barren Co., in 1785 was still a County in Virginia as Kentucky Statehood was in 1792. It has seemed odd that one child would be born in Barren in 1783 then Esther born in 1785 back in Cecil Co., MD. John Yates, Jr. is noted as being born in Kentucky in 1790.

    Title of List: ROBERSON, GEORGE, All, 1755, United States, Maryland First Name: GEORGE Last Name: ROBERSON Event Type: All Year: 1755 Country: United States State: Maryland City: Language: English (ENG) Description: Dec. of GEORGE-- sons, George, Daniel and Benjamin. MD>KY>IN (Crawford Co.) Date Created: 17-FEB-2002 09:17

    Thomas Woolley b. ca 1785 (MD or VA) married Letty (Violetty) Robertson 4-9-1807, dau. of George Robertson, was married by rev. Joseph Ferguson. Bondsman James Watson certified that Letty was age 21.

    On 4-30-1807 James Watson married Eleanor Robertson in Washington Co. KY per marriage records. Was married by rev. Joseph Ferguson (Methodist minister). George Robertson gave permission for his daughter Eleanor Robertson to marry James Watson who was his step-son.

    George Robinson married Teresy Watson 4-25-1805 in Nelson Co., KY by rev. Joseph Ferguson and James Watson was bondsman.

    Stephen Robinson married Sally Watson on 9-22-1808 in Nelson co., both were over 21 per bondsman James Watson and they were married by Rev. Joseph Ferguson.

    George Robertson appears on the 1799 tax list with 50 acres on the Beechfork until 1805 when he was on the 1805 tax list of Nelson co. back in Washington Co. with 100 acres on the Beechfork in 1806.

    In 1803 Daniel Roberson appears on the Washington Co. KY. tax list with 50 acres on the Beechfork river and George Roberson also had 50 acres on the Beechfork.

    (note there were 2 others George Robertson's-a father and a son George Jr., on diff. watercourse)

    By 1806 Daniel Robeson is gone from Washington Co. and appears on the 1806 tax list of adjoining Hardin Co. KY. and his father (I believe this to be true) George Roberson has 100 acs. on Beechfork in 1806. By 1807 George is missing from Washington Co. tax list and appears on the 1807 tax list of Hardin Co. and Daniel, George and Stephen Robinson are on the 1810 census of Hardin Co. KY.

    The 1814 tax lists shows George Robinson with son George Robinson Jr., and by 1816 Benjamin Robinson joins the 2 George's. By 1818 George Roberson Sr. is gone. George, Daniel, and Benjamin are still there, and remain there until the 1820 tax list and census, then Daniel is gone and George Jr., and Ben there till 1823. They later appear in Crawford Co. IN but brother Stephen Roberson was on the 1820 census of Crawford Co. IN. I'm not sure what happened to George Robertson Sr. or when he died.

    Thomas Woolley that married Violetty had a brother Richard Bolton Woolley b. 1782 MD. who married Nancy Hughes 1805 in Nelson Co. was on the 1809 tax list of Hardin Co. and by 1830, was on the 1830 census of Crawford co. IN. near George Roberson Jr. and have a son. Thomas Jefferson Woolley marries in 1827 to Mary Robertson in Crawford Co. She may have been the youngest daughter of George Sr. or perhaps a daughter of Daniel Roberson as they had a son Daniel Woolley.

    George Sr. appears to be the same one that marries in Prince George Co. MD. King George parish records of 1689-1801 show that a George Robertson married Virlinda Johnston 2 October 1781. The parish register records 2 of their children- Benjamin Roberson b. Sept. 28, 1795 son of George and Violinder Roberson and Elizabeth Ann Roberson b. July 15. 1793, daughter of George and Verlinder Roberson.

    The following were in another district [or land tax vs. personal property?]
    7 Apr William COMBS 2050 acres paid taxes on land for 1792,'93,'94
    14 Apr Samuel COMBS 113 acres on Chaplin
    23 Apr John COMBS 80 acres on Simpson Ck ,pd taxes for1792,'93,'94
    25 Apr Nelson COMBS 100 acres on Simpson Ck, pd taxes for 1792,'93, '94
    25 Apr Edward COMBS, Jr 100 acres on Simpson Ck, pd taxes for 1792,'93,'94
    25 Apr David COMBS 87 acres on SimpsonCk , pd taxes 1792,'93,'94

    John COMBS heirs by Geo ROBERTSON 200 acres in Hardin Co on Ruff (Rough Ck) Sinking Ck

    Notes: Based on the 1794 and 1796 lists, it appears that the second district may have been land taxes as versus personal property; i.e., John (Apr 23 both lists), Nelson and Edward (Apr 25 both lists) were probably one and the same. Who was John COMBS, deceased by 1795? Who was George ROBERTSON?).

    George married Violinda Johnson on 2 Oct 1781 in Prince George's, Maryland. Violinda (daughter of John Summers Johnson and Sarah Riley) was born in 1765 in Prince George's, Maryland. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
