another "Fugate" question

Hello Fellow Fugates and People Who Love to Search for Them!

I am searching for my paternal family history. I don't know much but here's what I do:

Dad: Walter Earl Fugate
birth 4/29/1928
death 1/?/1982

Grandmother: Nonearl Hunnley (sp?) Fugate
Gradfather: Walter (?) Fugate

My paternal grandfather was killed by my paternal great grandfather.

I think they lived (my grandparents) in central Kentucky... around the Kentucky River ... perhaps near Irving, Kentucky

My father told stories about either his father or grandfather working for the railroad... at that time their name was Fugitt (or perhaps Fugit). Because the "Fugate" who worked at the railroad was illiterate, the paymaster changed the spelling to "Fugate"... Grandpa put his "X" next to that spelling and Viola'! we were forever "Fugates"

If anyone has any info about my family... I would sincerely appreciate their assitance.

Thanks,
Donna
