Notes for JAMES (JIM) WASHINGTON HEMBREE: 

Buried: Grape Creek Church Cemetery 

From Joyce Reece; Jreece@icx.net 

     "Jim Hembree was an exceptional man...so was Cressie.  Jim enlisted in the army of the Confederacy, Company " F " 16th North Carolina Regiment and later transferred to Company B of the same regiment formed in Buncombe County, North Carolina.  James fought in 15 major battles including Gettysburg.  During the battle at Gettysburg Jim was injured and transferred to David's Island, New York as a prisoner of war.  He lost his lower right leg on July 22, 1863.  After the Civil War Jim and Cressie moved to Aubrey, Hunt County, Texas.  He road the circuit teaching children for 40 years".  "James and Cressie owned a sandy farm, where they grew cotton, corn and watermelons.  They would eat the watermelons in the field.  When asked which side he fought with in the Civil War, James would reply, I wore the gray.  I also remember our Fore Grandparents, Lewis (Louis) and Sarah, they lived near us in Texas and are interred in Texas along with their daughter, Cressie.  I became ill with pneumonia at the age of nine and remembered Grandma Creesie was the kind of person that came to your house with her apron full of medicine and never left until you were well again, as in my case, however, Grandma Cressie contracted pneumonia and died.  Soon after the loss of his wife, James returned to Cherokee County, N.C. and lived with his son, George until he died.

Found marriage information on the Family Tree Maker's Family Archives Kentucky, 18-51-1900 Marriage Index CD# 233. Also found marriage information at Knox County Court House in Kentucky.       

Child of REBECCA HEMBREE and JOHN LAWS is:

                   i.       GEORGE MILLARD9 LAWS, b. Coal Post, Tennessee, Knox County; d. December 17, 1946, Sunshine, Kentucky, Harlan County; m. DORA EMMA JACKSON.

Marriage Notes for WILLIAM HEMBREE and NANCY MARSEE:

Found marriage information on the Family Tree Maker's Family Archives Kentucky, 1851-1900 Marriage Index CD# 233. Also found marriage information at Knox County Court House in Kentucky.       

Children of WILLIAM HEMBREE and NANCY MARSEE are:

176.            i.       AMANDA (MANDY)9 HEMBREE, b. 1862, Kentucky.

177.           ii.       JOHN ROBERT HEMBREE, b. August 20, 1867, Kentucky; d. April 19, 1927, Artemus, Kentucky, Knox County.

                 iii.       JAMES HEMBREE, b. 1869, Kentucky.

                 iv.       MARY HEMBREE, b. 1871. 

Notes for MARY HEMBREE:

Mary wasn't included on some of the records I found on the internet. That leads me to think she may be adopted, or just a relative taken in. 

                  v.       GEORGE W. HEMBREE, b. 1873, Kentucky.

                 vi.       MARGARET HEMBREE, b. 1876, Kentucky. 

110.  EZEKIEL8 HEMBREE (JOHN7, JOHN (JR.)6, JOHN (SR.)5, WILLIAM (JR.)4, WILLIAM (SR.)3, ISACC2, HENRY1) was born September 24, 1848 in Knox County, Kentucky, and died July 16, 1927 in Knox County, Kentucky.  He married FRANCIS OWENS July 07, 1870 in Knox County, Kentucky. 

Notes for EZEKIEL HEMBREE:

I got the dates of his birth and death off his tombstone at a Cemetery in Brush Creek; Knox County, Kentucky. James Bradley (J.B.) Hembree thought the name of the Cemetery was Tinsley Bridge Cemetery.  

Marriage license says his birth date is July 10, 1848. Marriage certificate has him listed as Ezekiel Hembree, Jr. 

In the 1850 Knox County Census, Ezekiel is listed as 3 years of age so it would seem that he may have been born in 1847; his death certificate says his birth date is September 24, 1820.  I believe that is an error. 

The 1900 census for Knox Co. KY.  It is as follows:

Hembree, Ezekiel  52 b. KY 7/1847   {his death certificate says he was born in September instead of July}

m. Feriba (probably nickname for Francis) 44 b. KY 2/1856 {her tombstone gives her birth date as February 16, 1846}.

Isaac F.  18 b. KY 7/1881,

John M.  17 b. KY 2/1883,

Merica E. [possibly America Ellen] 14 b. KY 9/1885, {Could this be Mary?}

Steven D.  13 b. KY 11/1886,

Oliver A.C.  12 b. KY 1/1888,

Joe A.  10 b. KY 11/1889, {This must be a mis-print or someone that isn't one of Ezekiel's children. Ezekiel's sons name was Joseph Cephus and his tombstone has his birth date as September 24, 1848}.

Andrew  9 b. KY 5/1891.  

I was told that Ezekiel had 13 children, no one knows who Oliver is, so he may not be one of Ezekiel’s children. 

Knox Co. Marriage Book BB & C:

Hembree, Ezekiel to Owens, Francis  7/7/1880 both born in Knox Co. KY. It also stated both of Ezekiel's parents were born in Knox County. Francis' parent's birthplaces were unknown. Certificate from bride's grandfather who raised her. Principal and surety: Ezekiel Hembree & John W. Baker. 

Cause of Death: Paralysis; he had no Doctor 

Notes for FRANCIS OWENS:

Alias: Feriba (probably nickname for Francis)

I got the dates of her birth and death off her tombstone at a Cemetery in Brush Creek; Knox County, Kentucky. James Bradley (J.B.) Hembree thinks the name of the Cemetery is Tinsley Bridge Cemetery.  

Francis was raised by her grandfather. 

Marriage Notes for EZEKIEL HEMBREE and FRANCIS OWENS:

Children of EZEKIEL HEMBREE and FRANCIS OWENS are:

Notes for GEORGE W. HEMBREE:

The date of his birth and death are from his tombstone.

Buried: Tinsley Cemetery, Brush Creek, Knox County, Kentucky

                xiii.       OLIVER A. C. HEMBREE, b. January 1888, Kentucky. 

Notes for OLIVER A. C. HEMBREE:

Not sure if he is one of Ezekiel’s sons or not. His name was listed in the 1900 census records listed below: 

The 1900 census for Knox Co. KY.  It is as follows:

Hembree, Ezekiel  52 b. KY 7/1847   {his death certificate says he was born in September instead of July}
