Hi,

I am researching the Wimsett (Wimsatt) family. They came to Kentucky from Maryland with a group of Catholics. My great grandfather was Charles C Wimsett, the son of Benedict J. & Mary Friend Wimsett of Hodgenville, Larue County Kentucky. Mary owned the Lynn Hotel that was on the square in Hodgenville. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.....

Surnames: Wimsatt, Drury
In response to your inquiry of the Wimsatt: My ancester, Catherine Wimsatt married Bernard Drury in Maryland. In the Maryland Census 1800 and 1810 they had 7 children. Next, have record of his death in Marion co,1819 and Catherine then married John Greenwell, One son, Ignatius Drury came to Union Co. and I am not sure of any of the other childrens names but have found the name Benedict in Ignatious childen and grandchildren. Does my Catherine fit in your Wimsatts? Have you seen M. L. Donnellys Beaverdam Manor Book. The wimsatts are researched in it.

Surnames: Wimsatt, Cissell
Raphael Wimsatt and Susannah Cissell were my 4th great grandparents. I'm not sure where you fit in the line because I don't have a Benedict. I fit in this way. Raphael & Susannah's son Stephen married Margaret Melton (my 3rd greats)(Nelson County, KY) - their son Robert L. married Mary Aloysia Boone(my 2nd greats)(Nelson County, KY moved to Marion County KY) - their son Henry Ignatius (b. Marion County) married Julia Elizabeth Driscoll (my great grandparents)(in Barry County, MO) - their daughter Ellen (Ella)(was born in Marion County, KY - her parents married in MO, moved to Marion County for 7 months and then back to MO) married Eugene Vogt (my grandparents).

Also from the book Marylanders to Kentucky, 1775-1825, by Henry C. Peden, Jr., Family Line Publications, 1991, there are two paragraphs about them [Wimsatt(Wimsett,Winsett)] and says in part: ..."Joseph Wimsett, Raphael Wimsett, and Stephen Wimsett were Catholic settlers from St. Mary's County, MD who settled on Rolling Fork in Nelson County, KY prior to 1800." Raphael & Susannah are mentioned in the next paragraph along with Sylvester (not sure yet how he fits in either).

Also see my web site for additional members of these families. It takes them back to about 1665 St. Mary's County, MD. You'll need to scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the link for Richard Wimsatt I.

If this works for you, e-mail me so I can provide a little bit more detail for you...not much but a little bit.

In the 1850 Marion County census there is A Mary Friend age 70, listed as living with my ggggrandmother Anastasia (Moore)McCauley age 77. Anastatia and her husband John McCauley also came from Maryland. Do you have any idea if this is the same Mary Friend? I also have Wimsatts' in my line, I wonder if this is how they came together. Any info will be helpful, maybe I'll have some info for you. Thanks
