BURKHART, Minnie E (I234)
Byron was reaised on a small farm near Harrodsburg. He began working
in the quarries and lived at home. His father charged him rom and
board. In the winter, when the quarries closed he loved to hunt,
fish, and trap. He was a "crack shot", hard worker, and never shirked
any job. He could figure out and do anything. He made more in the
winter trapping than he did in the quarries in the summer. He was a
bee keeper and sold honey. He shot cardinal birds because they sat at
the honey combs and ate the bees.

Life was hard for Byron and Grace after they married. They moved in
with his father. Byron still had to pay room and board, even though,
Grace worked in the house and on the farm. They finally moved in with
her parents and later bought her grandfathers farm, the old Kelly

Byron and Grace raised chickens, set out an orchard, raised bees and
sold honey.

Grace played a joke on Byron one day. She fastened a cardinal bird up
in the tree before Byron came home from work. When he saw it he
grabbed th shotgun and went to shoot it. He wasted three shots before
he finally saw her laughing.

Byron and Grace lost their first child, who lived eight days, from
childbirth complications. Dr. Mitchell, who delivered little Homer
had crushed his skull.

Two years later Byron lost his life in a freak drowning accident. It
happened in the "Back Water" in the Fair Fax Bottoms, Monroe County,
at the foot of the hill where he lived. (This land is now the dam site
of Monroe Reservoir. The farm was located on the top of the hill
where the boat ramp is now located and the bottom between the two

Byron had found out his sister, Ethel, had gotten in trouble for
stealing at the grocery store in Harrodsburg. Byron was so angry,
even Grace and her parents couldn't talk him out of going. So, even
though the water was backed up from hill to hill, he proceeded to
Harrodsburg to see what was going on.

His father-in-law, Homer decided to go with him. They thought they
could cross because they could still see some of the tops of the fence
posts. But the water was so swift it swept the horse off his feet and
the buggy overturned. Byron was wearing hip boots. He unhooked the
horse and it made it to the bank. Then he helped Homer to a tree
where he could hang on. All this time Grace was watching. She saw
her husband start to the bank and saw him fall backwards into the
swirling waters. He never surfaced.

The water was so cold, middle of January, Homer froze to the tree.
Homer's son, Albert, took the row boat and rescued his Dad. When
starting back to the bank he asked where Byron was. Homer pointed to
a spot, but when he had gotten in the boat, he was turned around and
pointed the wrong way. Homer was taken home and given whiskey to
evieve him. Orelando Prince stayed with the family all night. The
Harrodsburg side went back home and came again the next morning.

Friends and the authorities came the next morning and found Byron's
body just a few feet from shere he had disappeared. He was taken to
the funeral home and the mortician told Grace there wasn't any water
in his lungs. He had over taxed his heart and it had burst. His hair
beneath his cap was still dry.

He left his wife expecting their second child. He was born forty one
days later. Grace had to have a sale and sell every thing. She had
to work in the fields like a man. She used the team of horses and
plowed and planted and harvested the crops. She raised Canary birds
and sold them. Grace and her mother raised large gardens and canned
lots of the produce. They had apples, peaches and pears from the
orchard. These were also "put up" for the winter season. They
picked black berries and raspberries and cannedthese. They butchered
their own meat, canned some salted some down in large crocks, sugar
cured and smoked the hams. They sold some to help with the
eccessities which they couldn't raise.

Grace remarried December 24, 1935 to Webb Knight of Lawrence County,
In. They had three dughters. Webb farmed and drove a school bus for
the Needmore School.

Hazlett rode on horse back from Virginia to Indiana when he was only
17 years old. Think of the bravery it took as he had to face the
beasts of the forest. In those days roads were scarce and he only had
Indian trails for guidance. After arriving in Indiana he met and
married a 15 year old girl. They had 15 children and many many
grandchildren. They raised their family on a farm 2 miles northeast
of Smithville, Indiana.

According to the history of Monroe County, H. Barrett was part of the
Methodist Church in Harrodsburg in the 1850s. In the 1850 Census -
Household 180, Perry Twp Dist 132, Land value $300.00.

Hazlett and Elizabeth are both buried near the old farm place in
Smithville. This Cemetery was turned into pasture land, later
destroyed when the housing addition was built. There aren't any
stones to be found anywhere in 1986. The old Cemetery was located
across the road from the Lucas Cemetery northeast of Smithville, IN.

Their farm was located on Ramp Creek, in the valley. The top of the
hill above the farm is called Handy Ridge. Part of the old home place
was still standing in 1980. Although sold and resold it was made to
stand for many years.

HUFFAKER, James William (I236)
John served in the Revolutionary War, in Capt. Buchanan'a Compnay of
Militia, Montgomery County, Virginia.

Johann (John) Adam Phillippi married Maria Barbara Eva Eichelberger
Apr. 12, 1737/9; d. Oct.9, 1823) on Aug. 2, 1757 in Warwick, Lancaster
County, Pennsylvania. He served in the Revolutionary War, in Capt.
Buchanan's Company of Militia, Montgomery County, Virginia.

Johann had been born in Alsace, France and emigrated to America with
father and family. He had moved to Wythe County, Virginia from York
County, Pennsylvania where his family had settled in 1732 when the
Phillippes had migrated there from France. German speaking natives of
Alsace, France, they intermarried with, and took on the habits of,
Pennsylvania Dutch neighbors. When these people began settling the
Piedmont area of Virginia, John Phillippe was the first to come to
western Virginia, John and Eva having joined the westward migration at
the close of the Revolutionary War. John died in Wythe County,
Virginia, but his grave is unlocated. [Lewis, Riddle].

The Phillippi family originated in southern Europe, in Germany. It is
said that these Philippis moved to Alsace from Switzerland in 1650, in
a letter written (in German) when one of Johannes sisters died.
Passengers having the name Phillippi (or Phillipe, Philippi, or
Philipy) are listed in shipping registers as having arrived in the New
World in 1749, 1750, and 1764 [Lewis, Lundy]. On Sep. 15, 1749
foreigners from Zweibruchen, Nassau, Wirtemberg, and Palatinate
arrived on the ship Phoenix, John Mason, Master, from Rotterdam, Georg
Frantz Philippi among them. On August 28, 1750 the ship the Phoenix,
John Mason, Captain arrived in Philadelphia from Rotterdam, last from
Cowes. Onboard were Johannes Phillipi, Johannes Phillipi jr., Andreas
Phillipi and Christian Philipy. About twelve names later is Johannes
Philipi [Lundy]. At this point its probable that Johann Adam Philippi
(b. Aug. 4, 1736) is a son [Bell, DaVar, Lewis, Phillippi1], not a
ephew [Canfield] of Johannes Phillipi with whom he sailed. If the
latter is true, it is likely he is a son of Georg Frantz Philliippi
and that he was following his father, who had emigrated the previous
summer. This would make him a nephew of Johannes Philippi and Maria
Christina Cleiss Philippi instead of a son as listed above. This
position is held by [Canfield, Keeton, Philpy] who then give his date
of birth as Oct. 9, 1728.

John Phillippe served in the Revolutionary War in Capt. Buchanan's
company of militia from Montgomery Cty, Virginia. He moved to Wythe
Cty, VA from York Cty, PA where his family had settled in 1732, when
the Phillipis had migrated from France. German-speaking natives of
Alsace, France, they had mingled easily with the Pennsylvania Dutch.
John was the first to come to western Virginia, joining the westward
migration at the close of the Revolutionary War.
