Notes for James "Henry" Kegley
His death certificate lists James Henry Kegley, age 57 years 6 mos 13 days, died 16 July 1914 in Rowan Co., married, born 3 Jan 1857 in With Co. Virginia, father William Kegley, mother Saphira Grub, both born in Virginia, cause of death killed by lightning, informant M. F. Fouch, Elliottville, Ky, burial in Kegley graveyard.
(His son Ora died in the same lightning strike.)
Some records (e.g., the death certificate of his son Everett) incorrectly list his full name as John Henry Kegley; this is most likely due to the fact that as an adult he went by Henry or J. Henry, causing his first name to be guessed at.
Notes for Cloe Susan Cox
Her death certificate records Mrs. Cloa Skaggs, age 72 years 7 months 10 days, born 20 Mar 1868 in Rowan Co., died 1 Nov 1931 in Farmers, Rowan Co., Ky, widow, father John Cox born in Va, mother’s maiden name Sara Barker born in Ky, cause of death diabetes, informant C. H. Kegley, Haldeman, burial at Kegley home, Elliottsville.
1930 census of Rowan Co., Ky, Pine Grove precinct, enumerated 14 April, lists on p. 6A as family #96/97:
Skaggs, Chloa, 62, widowed, b. Ky Ky Ky; Kegley, Bice, son, 37, single, b. Ky Va Ky.
Notes for James "Henry" & Cloe Susan (Family)
Rowan Co. marriage register A, p. 60, lists marriage of James H. Kegley and Clora S. Conn on 20 Dec 1883.
According to her death certificate, though, her parents were John Cox and Sarah Barker, and the death certificate of her son Ora lists his mother’s maiden name as Chloe Susan Cox. Also there is no Cloe Conn in the 1870 or 1880 census, but there is a Cloe S. Cox with the John Cox and Sarah Barker family. So the marriage register must be wrong.
