NOTE: Kenton Co., Kty. 1850 Census shows him and family in same county as Joseph, and he is assumed to be his son. I receive the below in 1/00 and it may be him and his wife:

I am interested to find and learn more about the Wayland sisters who married the MASSEYS.

I have a Mary Massey married JOSIAH WAYLAND in 1847 Grant Co., KY
Sarah Massey married RICHARD WAYLAND in 1840 Grant Co., KY

I can not find Josiah and Mary after 1850, where did they go and the children? I have a bit on Richard and Sarah in Kenton Co, KY in the 1850 Federal Census and some children thats all. Where did they all go?

Mary and Sarah's younger sister, Eliza Jane Massey married Christopher Clark Johnson in 1848 in Grant County, KY, the bondsman was Josiah Wayland. Eliza Jane and Christopher are my ancestors. Thanks

I rec'd this 6/99 from Russ Rickards

Your Perry Wayland could be the same one that married Catherine Quertermous. She was born c1857, and your Perry 1850. Kenton county is near the Ohio & Indiana border where many of the Rickards and Records family lived. The Quertermous family migrated to Ky from Md. along with the Records family. Unfortunately, I do not know anything about the Waylands or where my info came from. If you can connect to Catherine, let me know. Russ

All three were thieves and murderers. Fountain Kelley before he was 21 killed a neighbor boy and was sent to the penitentiary. Moses and Robert were hanged at Hawesville, KY Oct 28, 1853 for the wholesale murder of the crew of a flat-boat known as "Eliza" on the Ohio River on the night of Oct. 22, 1852...Andrew Allen Veatch, 'Criminal Records of the Wayland,' 'The Remonstrator' 1.6 (July 1, 1913(: 3. The 'Confession of Moses Kelley' was published in book form by D.L. Adair (i.e. Adams)" Moses was 28 and Robert was 18 when hung, and admitted murders.
