Notes


Willoughby Hudgeons GUESS

He was married once before he married Patty Ann and twice after she died. He had 20 or 21 children all together. Information from Crittenden County, Kentucky History Book. In 1880, he had 1 child by his 1st wife with him, 1 child by his 2nd wife and 7 children by his 3rd wife Sarah J. His parents came to Caldwell County in 1832, when he was just a baby.

NEWSPAPER: The Crittenden Press, Marion, Kentucky 10 December 1920
Mr. Willoughby H. GUESS, perhaps the oldest citizen in Crittenden County, was in Marion Friday. He is past 90 years old and resides with his son, Huley H. Guess, in the Piney Creek section. He was looking well and while not as spry on foot as he was at 25, he gets around remarkably well for one who has passed his four score and ten milestone. Mr. Guess was born in Orange County, North Carolina and came to Crittenden County, Kentucky at the tender age of one year. He has been married three times and is the father of 21 children, 10 of whom are living. He does not know, he says, the number of grandchildren he has, having lost count, however, as all of his children are married, and counting four to the family, which he says is a low estimate, he surmises he has 40 grandchildren and 21 great- grandchildren. Mr. Guess' first wife was Miss. Frankie Deboe, his second was Miss. Palla Hughey, and his third Miss. Sarah Jane Riley. Though married three times, he has been for several years a widower. It is not known to us whether Mr. Guess contemplates taking a fourth wife or not; however, we might add, some woman who is of the opinion that marriage is not a failure might do well to form such an entangling alliance with him provided he is willing.


Patience Ann HUGHEY

She was the granddaughter of John Fralick Jr. and his wife Patricia. Her
mother maybe Sarah who married Michael D. Hughey. Not sure though she was
living with John Jr. and Patricia in 1850 and 1860.


Silas GUESS

He was 12 in 1880.

In 1920 he had 8 children and 3 grandchildren according to the Crittenden Press Newspaper


Cordella JACOBS

She was 8 in 1880.

NOTES: She was an Old-Time Presbyterian and was a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Piney Fork, Kentucky. When her 3rd child Gilford Silas died the doctor said to wait to bury the baby because the Mom would only last another day. Instead she lived to be 95 years of age. Info on the Guess family received from Darlene Van Dyke a descendant on 15 Aug 2002.
