439. Lucy Catherine HADEN was born on 6 September 1824 in Logan County, Kentucky.302 She died after 1880 at the age of 56 in Laclede County, Missouri.

Her name was written on the family papers as Catherine L., but I believe she later went by Lucy Catherine. I found her in the Appling family databases as Lucy Catherine Hadden, but her age in subsequent censuses, her birthplace, and the names given some of her children - particularly the first daughter, lead me to believe that I have found the lady.

She married Allen Monroe Appling, probably in one of the counties that - Camden, Pulaski, Wright - that were the parent counties of Laclede Co MO. Although since both were born in Kentucky, and may have been living in Simpson Co, they may have married before leaving. The marriage records for Simpson Co are lost. Since exact birth dates of the children are found, it's likely there was a Bible or family record of some sort. I would think they married two years or so before the birth of the first child in 1846. Allen was some years older and the databases show a second brief marriage to Karen Jean Cunning - it that marriage took place it was before he married Lucy, since she outlived him.

Lucy Catherine HADEN and Dr. Allen Monroe APPLING were married circa 1845 in prob Simpson County, Kentucky. Dr. Allen Monroe APPLING was born on 1 January 1818 in Logan County, Kentucky. He died on 1 February 1867 at the age of 49 in Laclede County, Missouri.

Allen was son of Joel F. Appling and Sarah B. Breedlove. Joel is said to have died in Simpson Co KY, 2 Oct 1845. They are both said born in Albemarle Co VA - so this would be another family that had come from that part of Virginia to Logan Co KY. Some of Allen's younger siblings are said born in Simpson Co, partially formed from Logan Co in 1819.

Lucy Catherine HADEN and Dr. Allen Monroe APPLING had the following children:

vi.

Eugene APPLING was born on 30 May 1858 in Laclede County, Missouri. He died before 1860 at the age of 2 in Laclede County, Missouri.

An un-named male child, age one month is in the 1860 census. The official date of the 1860 census was June 1st - so the child should have been born in May, 1860, if directions were followed. The database says that this child, who never appears elsewhere was born 30 May 1858 - so he must have died as a baby. Then Constantine, the next son is shown as born May of 1861 - he wouldn't have been in the census in 1860 if that is true. I suspect he was born in 1860.

1235

vii.

Constantine APPLING was born on 9 May 1860 in Laclede County, Missouri.

Constantine is shown as born 9 May of 1861 - he wouldn't have been in the census in 1860 if that is true. I suspect he was born in 1860.

Ada E. APPLING was born on 11 November 1862 in Laclede County, Missouri.

1237

ix.

Irvin M./W. APPLING was born on 1 August 1866 in Laclede County, Missouri. He died on 2 September 1888 at the age of 22 in Laclede County, Missouri.

Irwin's grave is at Millsap Cemetery, Lebanon Township, Laclede Co, MO. His stone says he was husband of Laura; she does not seem to be buried near him - they were so young it's likely she remarried.
