E-mail message from Jean Ann Ables-Flatt, dated February 22, 2002 (

Mr. Francis:

I read with interest your very good work on the descendants of Joseph Shawhan. I actually found it through Google in running a search on Bourbon County, Kentucky and Jacob Keller. I am putting together a report on the Keller family for a friend of mine whose children descend from the Kellers.

I thought you might like the information I have gathered on Margaret Bell (Maggie B.) Lail born May 31, 1861 in Kentucky and died January 1, 1920 in Terrell, Kaufman County, Texas. I noticed she got left off of your children of Joseph Lail born ca 1824-1906). She is listed with him as a daughter on 1880 Harrison Co. KY census and also in his household on the 1870 census. I see you have six children, but if you study the census, they had 10 children in all. Buena Vista, ca 1847; Webb, ca 1849; Albert, ca 1851; Ada, 1853; Mary, ca 1855; Woodford, ca 1858; Margaret Bell (Maggie B.), May 31, 1861; Willie, 1868; Alexander, 1870; and Sallie, Born May 31, 1873 (who married H.P. Shaw February 08, 1894 in Kaufman Co. Texas and died November 30, 1926 and buried in Kaufman City Cemetery, Kaufman County, Texas.)

According to her obituary in the Terrell Tribune, January 1, 1920 (Terrell, TX), Maggie B. married James P. Keller, December 23, 1880 in Kentucky. He was the son of John C. Keller and Mary E. Simpson of Bourbon Co. KY. and the grandson of Jacob Keller. Maggie B. and James P. Keller migrated to Kaufman C o. Texas around 1884. He was the Sheriff of the County for twelve years until his death in 1900. She had three children by him. April 07, 1901 she married Joseph H. Keller, brother to James P. Keller. Joe was the City Marshall of Terrell and was shot down on the street October 28, 1913. Her obitiuary states that "she was Miss Margaret Bell Lail, a prominent family of Kentucky." It also states that "Two brothers in Kentucky and sister, Mrs. H.P. Shaw of Kaufman are the surviving members of her own family."

I will be happy to furnish any documentation you request. It is always nice to find fellow researchers who are working on the same lines.

Research: "George Henry Lail at the time of the Civil War went to visit his cousin John McDowell Shawhan in Indiana. John, having been born in Kentucky, with many relations residing there who were wealthy slave owners, the Civil War found him sympathizing with the Southern Cause in a community anti-rebel. He was suspected of treasonable activities by the Hoosiers and at one time his life was in such that he erected a pole, said to have been 75 ft. high, surmounted a bell to call his neighbors to his assistance in case of trouble. There absolutely was no basis for such action, or suspicions, other than finding a man to take the place of GEORGE HENRY LAIL, in the Union Army. Young Lail had come north on a visit and was about to be conscripted in an army fighting his own brothers, and in a cause inimical to his convictions, so there was justification for his later father-in-law's action." {MPL. p. 68}

I hesitated to post this to the list because of the size.

Hope it helps

This is copied from the Original --a four page leaflet Grant County Library, Williamstown, KY

Thomas Edwin Moore was born February 15 ,1831, on the south side of south Licking river about a half mile from said river and about two miles south of Morgan, Ky., on the L & N. Railway, in Pendleton County, Kentucky, on his father's farm. Was a son of William Moore and Margaret Sanford Braun. His father died with cholera July 30, 1833, survived by the widow and six children; Margaret Ann, James Andrew, Nancy Elder, Jocephus, William and Thomas Edwin Moore.
The widowed mother educated her children in the country schools. After all had passed the age of maturity except Thomas, who was about sixteen, she married Robert Makemson and died September 2, 1894, at the age of 100 years, eight months and four days. Longevity on both sides--his grandmother, Frances Mitchell Braun, died at the age of 88 years; two of his father's sisters lived to the ages of 84 and 97; tow of Thomas' sisters and one brother died at the ages of 82, 83 and 83.
The Grandfathers Moore and Brann came from Westmoreland county, Virginia, and Mitchell and Elder from adjacent counties. Moore and Braun settled in Bourbon County-Brann in Paris, Moore in the county near Pleasant Green Church on south side of Townsend Creek. Elder resided in Scott county, Kentucky. Thomas' father, William Moore, was born in Paris, December 29, 1793. The Grandfathers Moore and Braun removed to Pendleton County about 1802. The Moores trace to England, Braun to Scotland. Their ancestors settled in Westmoreland County, Virginia, about 1655. William Moore, Thomas' father, was in the War of 1812; was a Justice of the Peace. He was a son of Nicholas Moore and Nancy Elder. The Grandfather Elder resided in Scott County, Kentucky, The grandfathers on the Moore side were (this part is partly gone. 2 sentences .. I can make out the following) were Nicholas Capt. James and Lieut. William...end of paragraph.
Thomas R. Moore' mother was Margaret Sanford Brann, a daughter of Francis Mitchell, who was a daughter of Margaret Sanford and Capt. James Mitchell. who was at the Battle of Mt. Pleasant, October 10, 1774. About 1840 Thomas left the farm and entered the general retail store of Stowers & Hume at Callensville, one mile west of Morgan. In 1854 he entered R. M. Bartlett's Commercial College, Third St., Cincinnati, where he graduated.
In 1854 his brother, James Andrew Moore, was elected Sheriff of Pendleton County, and Thomas was his Deputy. South and Main Licking rivers dividing the county nearly equal, Thomas transacted the business on the south and Southwest side, receiving the fees for his services. His brother was re-elected; Thomas declined to serve longer. In 1857 he went to Texas and traveled about four months, made an investment on Galveston Island upon which he realized a handsome profit, which after the sale became quite valuable. The winter of 1857-58 he was in Cynthianan with Judge J. S. Boyd, then Circuit Court Clerk, but later Circuit Judge. Judge Boyd was very kind and an educated, conscientious gentleman. He was in Judge Boyd's office when he received a dispatch that he had been nominated by acclamation by the Democritic Convention for county Court Clerk. He did not want the nomination, but accepted it and defeated the know-nothing nominee by 68 majority, overcoming an opposition of 200, defeating the incumbent, who had made a popular Clerk. The entire Democratic ticket was elected and county redeemed. Their friends gave them a barbecue on the farm of Million Ewing near Morgan. A large crowd gathered from the county and adjacent counties and towns. The day was celebrated by speeches and plenty. Every one was happy.
On September 29, 1859, Thomas and Miss Sarah Jane, a daughter of Col. John Shawhan and Talitha Rush were married about four miles North of Cynthiana by Elder Samuel Rogers, and went to house keeping in Falmouth, Ky., at that time holding the office of county Court Clerk. He was an alternate Delegate to Charleston and Baltimore convention in 1860 from the Covington District; was present at Baltimore.
REFERRING TO HIS WIFE'S FAMILY ANCESTORS & C.- Col. John Shawhan was a son of Joseph Shawhan and Sarah Ewalt. His grandfather was Daniel Shawhan, John and his father served in the Legislature and Senate. John was Sheriff of Harrison county and Captain in the war with Mexico, wounded in the battle at Buena Vista. Talitha Rush, his wife, was a daughter of George Rush, a grandson of Robert Rush, a relative of Dr. Benjamin Rush, signer of the Declaration of Independence. Joseph Shawhan served in the war of 1812. His wife, Sarah Ewalt was a daughter of Henry Ewalt who served in the war for Independence in Col. Bedford's regiment.
The War between the States.-Early in September, 1862, Captain Thomas E. Moore enlisted from the counties of Pendleton, Harrison, Bourbon, Grant, Owen, Campbell, Kenton Boone and perhaps other counties one hundred and twenty men, which was Co. D, 4th Ky. Cavalry, was the first confederate company to camp in the Paris fair grounds. About September 22, 1862, a few days later. Col. John Shawhan camped with his command on the Brooks place one mile east of Paris. Co. D then joined Col. Shawhan. Col. Giltner with about four companies a day or two later camped four miles east of Paris. Col. Shawhan moved back to Mt. Sterling and was immediately ordered to impede the escape of the Federal Gen. Morgan, who with his command escaped from Cumberland Gap to Ohio. Col. Shawhan was killed by Bush Whackers, whom he had previously paroled. At Col. Giltner's request Capt. Moore with his company joined col. Giltner's 4th Kentucky Cavalry Regiment. Opportunities considered, this was the equal of any cavalry service in the south. Never demoralized or whipped, when over whelmed by immense numbers and scattered, they would in a short time again confront the enemy. It was considered an honor to be associated with soldiers and officers of such a body of men. His was the 4th Squadron Co. D., and Capt. J. T. Willis, Co. G., Grant and Owen Co. men. Capt. Willis was a brave, competent officer, commanded a fine body of men and ever ready for duty. Company D., was first in line of battle October 8th, 1862, at Perryville, Ky., then passing through Pound Gap to Abingdon, Va., to General Headquarters for South-West Virginia and East Tennessee. In march 1863 Genl. Marshall moved into Eastern Kentucky threatening Central Kentucky. Late one afternoon the brigade camped. Pope Williams and Capt. Moore were about one mile from camp, they saw two men 200 yards distant, evidently intending to cut them off from their command; there was a deep depression in the road between them and fence on the rise on the enemies side, the Capt. said to Pope "Get your end field ready,"adjusting his revolvers, said, "When we get down in the big sink we will dash up to the fence and capture them, " which they did, demanding that they throw down their arms (a Lieutenant and one other, both Bush Whackers); they were both marched into camp and turned over to Capt. Marshall who was on guard The next day they were fired upon from a high mountain by 20 bush Whackers. Co. D., dismounted engaged them in front, two other companies rushed up drains on either side getting into their rear. The entire bunch of twenty were captured, including a Lieutenant--Col. Giltner called a conference of the officers of his command to ascertain their views as to what to do with them. After hearing various opinions Capt. Moore suggested that the Lieutenant be paroled on his honor; that he go out and get his friends to come in the next day and be paroled and cease Bush Whacking, or join the regular army, that their mode of warfare would not be tolerated." This was finally agreed upon. The Lieutenant appeared to be much relieved. Capt. Moore said to him. "You know we came come here when we want to, bring them in and we will parole them and they can stay at home. Bush Whacking will not be tolerated." He reported next morning none of the men could be found, that they had fled to Ohio, the entire twenty were paroled. The next day Robert F. Garrard, First Lieutenant in Co. D., was wounded in the leg below the knee, a bad fracture which rendered him unfit for service for about twenty months; the "Bush Whackers" were also captured. After this successful raid no Confederates were ever fired upon by these misguided people during the war. The command returned to Virginia guarding and checking raids of the enemy from Knoxville, Tenn. to the Valley of Virginia, ranging a distance of from 350 to 400 miles. In September and part of October 1863 Capt. Moore was sick with typhoid fever and not with his command in several engagements. About the 5th of November 1863 the 4th Kentucky on a dark wet evening moved from Blountville, Tennessee in the direction of Rogersville, Tennessee to meet the enemy near there. The advance guard encountered the enemy's outpost. Capt. Moore with his squadron Co. D. and Co. G., moved rapidly rushing their pickets into camp, at this juncture Major Parker dashed up the side of Capt. Moore, their artillery playing upon them from a woodland over Big Creek, Major Parker gave the command "Dismount quickly, charge across the creek," which they did and were the first to capture two pieces of artillery. The remainder of the 4th Kentucky moved up the creek to the rear of the enemy. A Tennessee Battalion was in line on our left, the enemy was badly demoralized and about eight hundred surrendered and only two hundred and fifty escaped across the Holestein river . Capt. Moore mounted a loose white horse and rushed to a cluster of hay stacks, found thirty without arms who were attempting to escape, they obeyed orders and marched into camp. Giltner's command were overjoyed at their breakfast, as many wagons, army supplies etc., were captured and the raid of the enemy wiped out, in this, one of their attempts to destroy and pillage southern homes of the southern people.
General Longstreet, in east Tennessee and skirmishes with Woolferd's cavalry, Mooresville, Bean Station, Knoxville and Panther Spring. West of Rogersville on road leading to Mooresville, Bean Station and Knoxville, in pursuance to orders of General Longstreet, Captain R. O. Cathright charged Wollferd's outpost and he retreated rapidly to induce the enemy to pursue, but they would not, the remainder of the 4th Kentucky was in line about one mile back, and in their rear a regiment of Longstreet's infantry secreted. The cavalry was to fire a scattering shot and make a hasty retreat over a rise in the road and give the infantry an opportunity to deal a telling blow, in that event the cavalry was to follow up the advantage and capture what was left. Genl. Woolferd with his command retired from Tennessee. Genl. Longstreet moved on in direction of Bean Station. Capt. Moore with his splendid company was ordered to report to Genl. Longstreet on the South side of Clinch Mountain. Col. Giltner with the rest of the 4th Kentucky was ordered on the North side of the mountain. Capt. Moore was ordered by Genl. Longstreet to charge the out post of the enemy, to drive them in or capture them. He obeyed the order. They fled to Bean Station one mile distant. Longstreet's infantry deployed in the rear, the Genl. about fifty yards in their rear. A southern lady residing near the out post where enemy pickets were stationed over looking Bean Station appeared on her front porch and said, "14 wagons have passed out the Morristown, road you can capture them". Thanking her with the remark, "we will," they immediately reported this information to Genl. Longstreet. The Genl. replied "We are driving them, when we get to the Morristown road go out and capture them." This order was obeyed; they went in a sweeping gallop three miles and a half, capturing thirty prisoners, 14 wagons, teams, arms, corn and twelve dressed fat hog, which were turned over to the General. Col. Giltner on the other side of the mountain captured wagons, teams, flour, sugar and coffee. The enemy being driven out of Bean Station Retreated to Knoxville. Genl. Jenkins and Gen. McClaws pursued them. After the siege of Knoxville, Genl. Longstreet retired by the way of Newmarket, Strawberry Plains.. company D., operated between New market, Strawberry Plains, Morristown and Russellville as Longstreet's out post and to gain information of the enemy's movements and keep the Genl. advised. Company D., did this duty for about six weeks between the two armies which was more or less hazardous.
The last order Capt. Moore received from Genl. Longstreet was from Russellville ordering him to proceed in the direction of Knoxville to capture some of their outpost if possible, ascertain position, strength of the enemy and any information deemed of interest, and to report to him at Bullsgap. he ascertained the location of the enemy to be in a woods five miles west of Morristown, with their out post at Panther Springs. They halted in a woods and deployed right and left , sending ten men to threaten their right and ten like wise to their left rear and had to move through an open field about two hundred yards, the enemy being on the opposite side behind a thicket of a scuby timber, pointing on either side of main road. Capt. Moore at the center led the charge at a rapid gallop. The enemy were about six hundred, with main force in their rear of seven thousand--less that one mile distant, commanded by Genl. Burnside. A few minutes before the charge Lieut. Payton, of Virginia, reported to Cap. Moore that he and Sergeant Goforth had eight or ten men; that they would be glad to cooperate. Capt. Moore replied, "Tell Sergeant Goforth we will all move at once, for him with his Tennesseans and Virginians to move from out left so as to threaten their rear." Lieut. Payton quickly delivered the order and a bold rapid dash was made, the enemy being surprised, fired about three rounds and beat a precipitous retreat to their main army, evidently believing Longstreet's main force was upon them. Result: a few of the enemy were wounded and captured. Capt. Moore received two wounds, his right arm broken above the elbow, a wound in his left side, his horse killed. Sergeant Goforth wounded in his foot and died. Lieut. Payton wounded a German in the head with his saber.
Capt. Moore when his horse fell under him, with presence of mind, dropped by the side of his fine horse, which was a protection, and believed his dead horse saved his life. This was a hot little fight and no laggards. Capt. Moore ordered that the saddle and bridle be taken from his horse. He was much attached to his fine horse and regretted its loss.
A carriage was obtained from the family of Co. Tulbott, three miles from the battle ground and the wounded moved back to a farm house where wounds were dressed, this was February 5th , 1864. Next morning they proceeded to Bullsgap. Genl. Longstreet had that same day embarked for Richmond. No report was made. About the 7th of February Capt. Moore was placed on a cot and taken to the hospital at Abingdon, Va. Here Sergeant Goforth died with lock jaw, result of his wounded foot. Lieut. Payton having preceded him informed his sister, Mrs. Preston, residing about two miles east of Abingdon. She at once sent him some nice things to eat, with a note hoping he would be able to relish, and called twice afterwards. Col. Preston probably was a member of the confederate Congress. After this Capt. Moore was not able to stand camp life and was not with his company, but performed duties on detached service.
Early in February 1865 in connection with Col. D. Howard Smith, he was sent to Kentucky with a flag of truce. When they arrived at Mr. Sterling, Col. Smith found it necessary to proceed to Lexington, taking two men with him leaving Capt. Moore in command of ten or twelve at Mr. Sterling, he being next in rank to Col. Smith. They remained about five or six days and returned to Abingdon, Va., taking back with them Mrs. J. Stodard Johnston, her little son, George W., and Miss Francis Breckinridge, daughter of Genl. John C. Breckinridge, now Mrs. Steele.
About the 1st of April 1865 they in connection with Major O. G. Cameron and other proceeded to Kentucky for the purpose of bringing out some Confederates, who had been cut off and scattered from Generals Morgan's command in his last battle at Cynthiana. They passed on through the mountains of Eastern Kentucky, Whitesburg, avoiding main thoroughfares, secreting themselves in daylight and moving at night, between Mt. Sterling and Owingsville; reaching a farm about tow and one-half east of Cynthianan surrounded by woodland. They went into camp in Mrs. Reese's stable, remained there till about eight p.m. Here they separated, Maj. Cameron and others going to the neighbor hood of Clanville, he and John Patton who was well acquainted with the route near Berry, about one mile south of Berr's Station. At a gate they separated agreeing to meet at the gate the third night thereafter. He proceeded and reaching his destination one mile west of Morgan, Kentucky, C. R. R. now the L. & N. R. R., on the night as agreed, he left Morgan about eight p.m.; it was a dark night, a gentle rain set in about nine and continued till about midnight. Arrived at the gate about ten p.m. When he reached the gate Pattou was to whistle; he stopped a moment and moved slowly, then came the whistle which gave him great relief. He answered and returned to the gate and exchanged congratuitous in that they had escaped so far in the hazardous penetration into the enemy's lines. They proceeded on their way to Mrs. Reese's Place from which they had separated to meet again, arriving there about 11 p. m. Maj. Cameron and others arriving two hours later. They remained there till nine the next evening and reached a point 11 miles

north of Mt. Sterling on slate Creek on the morning of April 30th, 1865. During the day they learned that Col. Giltner with the 4th Kentucky Cavalry were in the vicinity of Mt. Sterling. Capt. Moore immediately sent a flag of truce to the Major commanding the Post, proposing to surrender a colonel. He explained that he had served his time out and was commissioned to recruit

a regiment.
On the first day of may, 1865, he arrived at Shawhan, Bourbon county, Kentucky. He purchased a lot, erected a building and engaged in a general mercantile business until 1870; he then sold his building and stock of goods. Was nominated by the Democratic party and elected Sheriff of Bourbon County and was renominated and elected to succeed himself and served till 1875. He then engaged in farming, breeding of fine stock horses, cattle and sheep. he was elected Chairman of the Democratic county committee serving about six years, which he resigned. Was State Central committeeman from 7th Congressional District and State Chairman for about five years and declined further service. This was between 1895 and 1899 during which time he also was Chairman of his Senatorial District and Court of Appeals District. He was elected a Delegate for the 7th District in 1896 to the Chicago Convention and also as a Delegate to the Kansas City Convention. W. J. Bryan was the nominee in both Conventions. November 10th, 1902, he came to Lexington to reside with his children.
The splendid men who were members of Company D., which he recruited and commanded; r. F Garrard, 1st Lieutenant; W. N Weing, 2nd Lieutenant; John Makemson, 3rd Lieutenant; the boys of Company D., who shared the hardships are equally entitled to the highest praise. "They took up arms in defense of constitutional rights, in defense of their homes, to repel invasion. The southern people did not make war on women and children. The Northern States did, by inhumane orders of corrupt generals. Those who are yet living and fail to note humanity on one side, and the disregard of civilized warfare on the other side," said Capt. Moore, who never owned a negro.
He is a Jeffersonian Democrat. He has never missed an election nor failed to vote for the nominees of his party. His greatest wish is that his people shall be protected and guided by laws of justice.


This is a true history of some incidents in my life.

CAPTAIN THOS. E. MOORE, farmer and stockraiser; P.O. Shawhan; was born in Pendleton County, Ky., Feb. 15, 1831, son of Wm., and Margaret S. (Brann) Moore, both of whom were natives of Bourbon County, but whose parents were natives of Virginia. William Moore held the office of the Justice of the Peace, and served in the war of 1812. He died in 1833, of cholera. When 16 years old, the subject of this sketch began the battle of life for himself, he being the youngest of six children. He first worked at farming, then clerked in a store, after which he attended Bartlett's Commercial College at Cincinnati, from which he graduated; served as Deputy Sheriff under his brother, and was then elected County Clerck of Pendleton County, which position he held for four years; he was married Sept. 29, 1859, to Miss Sarah J. Shawhan, daughter of Col. John Shawhan, of Harrison County, Ky., who served in the Mexican war under General Taylor, and was wounded at the battle of Buena Vista, and who served in the late war, but was shot by a guerilla whom he had patrolled, whilst on his was to Kentucky to raise a regiment. Capt. Moore entered the Confederate service in 1862, as Captain of Co. D, 4th Kentucky Cavalry, H. L. Giltner, Colonel, and remained throughout the struggle, being wounded in two places whilst near Nashville. At the close of the war he engaged in merchandising, and was also engaged in distilling, and has paid considerable attention to the raising of fine and trotting stock, short horn cattle, and Cotswold and Southdown sheep. He has nine children: Tabitha, Sterling P., John S., Sallie, Minnie, Thomas E., William, Annie S., and George. On his farm is the ancient fort, mentioned in Collius' history, at the junction of the two streams forming the Stoner.


Capt. Thomas E. Moore, who died at his home in Lexington, Ky., in August, 1921, had reached the advanced age of ninety years. He was born February 15, 1831, in Pendleton County, Ky., the son of William and Margaret Brann Moore. His father died two years later, but his mother lived to be more than a hundred years old.
In the War between the States Thomas E. Moore enlisted for the Confederacy, and early in 1862 made up a company, which became Company D of the 4th Kentucky Cavalry, and which he commanded, taking part in many engagements with the 4th Kentucky, up to that at Bull's Gap, in which he was wounded and afterwards put on detached service. Early in February, 1865, he was sent with a flag of truce into Kentucky in connection with Col. D. Howard Smith. About the first of April he returned to Kentucky with the command of Maj. O. G. Cameron for the purpose of bringing out some of the men of Morgan's command who had been scattered in his last battle at Cynthiana; but the surrender came and they surrendered with Major Cameron on April 20.
On May 1 Captain Moore reached Bourbon County, Ky., where he engaged in a general merchandise business until 1870, when he became sheriff of the county and served until 1875. He then engaged in farming and the breeding of fine stock and became prominent in the political life of his State. In 1902 he removed to Lexington to reside with his children. His wife, who was Miss Sarah Shawhan, survives him with four daughters and two sons. [2]

The Cedars, Rudolph Mock/Capt. Thomas E. Moore House; ca. 1790

Shawhan-Ruddles Mills Road
Constructed ca. 1790 by Rudolph Mock on land purchased from George Ruddle, this small but well built one-story stone house on the hall-parlor plan has large end chimneys. The windows are accented with keystones and jackarches, and the woodwork is of the late Georgian or Federal style.
Mock must be admired for his choice of a building site. The house is located on a high rise between the South Fork of the Licking River and Stoner Creek above the point where Hinkston Creek joins Stoner to form the Licking River just west of Ruddles Mills. Nearby is the circular "Ancient Fort", noted by Collins as at the junction of the creeks, and still barely visible in a field.
The farm later was acquired by Captain Thomas E. Moore who is indicated at this location on the 1877 map. A confederate veteran, he was a farmer and stockraiser as well as a distiller and merchandizer. Moore, who called his farm The Cedars, was listed in the 1888 Lexington directory as 'specializing in "Trotters Stallions, Bismark, Idol and Twilight . . . . . Limited."
