    I have attached what I found out from Dad. I will check with my cousins and fill in the blanks, if possible. :)

    My Dad has ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) and my son, Peyton's project in school are what got me to thinking that I'd better find out who our "kin people" are while I still can. Thank you so much for all of your help. My grandmother, Mary Lou Baker Jessee, would rattle off who everyone in Russell Co. and beyond were related to. We all wish we had written down what she told us. She used to get us all tickled when she'd start. We used to tease her all the time. She would twitch her toe back and forth and spin her rings on her finger and she could tell who was related to who until our heads would spin. : I guess she was "our" first family historian. Much of what I was able to find out was through my dad and my great uncle John C. Baker (Granny's brother).

    Descendents of Robert "Cat Eye" Jessee & Lina Victoria Porter Jessee

    I'll find out what I can about the other children of Robert "Cat Eye" & Lina Jessee and get that to you. I remember Grandma Lina and their daughter Mollie B. (That's what we called her). She was married to a Byington. I can remember visiting both of them when I was little. Daddy says that Lina's parents were John (or George) Porter and Sally Bonds Porter. Dad says that Sally only had one eye. One of Lina's brothers was "Money Bob" Porter who was murdered after flashing $500 in front of some people at a store. Sally's parents were John & Hannah Bond.

    Dad says that John Skaggs Jessee & Jemima Dorton Jessee are buried in a cemetery off of Rt. 71 on top of a hill in a sharp bend in the road after you pass John Skagg's store and Turner Jessee's farm.
