Hello Michele,

Your great grandfather Walter Scott SALLEE was a 1st cousin of my grandmother Cynthia Frances SALLEE RYNERSON. Their grandparents were William SALLE and Hannah BURTON. Walter's entry appears on p. 78 of the Jack Dalton Bailey's book, "THE FAMILY HISTORY OF THE FRENCH HUGUENOT ABRAHAM SALLE' and his descendants" (2nd printing 1993). It has been very helpful to me.

The beginning of his entry reads:

"ID4G1b1. Walter Scott Sallee (8-31-1868 in Madison Co., KY.--1-25-1959 in Mercer Co., KY.) br.@ Ebenezer Church Cem., Mercer Co., KY; md. 10-13-1887 Mary Francis Roberts (11-20-1869--2-28-1959) d/o Jane Whitaker Roberts. A sister of Mary W. Million"

The book contains many ancestors and descendants. If you will e-mail me your address (at I will provide more info.

Your distant cousin,
Mary Rynerson Gillot

I am trying to research my Sallee line - anyone else looking at the Sallee line? My great grandfather was Walter Scott Sallee (died 1959). His father was Steven Sallee. Walter lived in Ebenezer, KY. For some time he ran a general store there.

I have for a long time been trying to search by Sallee
family all I know is my father was
Clifford Leo Sallee his father was John Sallee
his mother was Bette Ross I think they originated from
Kentucky. I've been told our ancestors were in New Orleans
with a pirate John LaFete. Maybe Mercer Co might be
a place they lived. There was also a Reizenhart involved
somewhere. Like to hear from you thanks

Patty -- Here is something to get you oriented with regard to Reynard Sallee. He is the great-grandson of Abraham Sallé and Olive Olympia Perrault. You can get the generations preceding Reynard, or "Raney" as we call him, from my ancestor page, URL below.

Plenty there on the Peavlers as well. If you want to be serious about Sallee genealogy, though, you'll need to get your own copy of Jack Bailey's "Family of the French Huguenot Abraham Sallé and his descendants (1992)". Jack Bailey, the compiler of the book, sells it for $40 and it has more than you'll probably want to know on the family -- if not (and I hope not), Jack also released about 3 weeks ago a Sallee "Companion Book" that he is selling for $55. A truly great addition. You can reach Jack by mail at 527 Scenic Hill Dr., Harrodsburg KY 40330, or by phone at (859) 734-7174.

I'd recommend also subscribing to the Sallee Family and Peavler Family online maillists. You just send an e-mail to , leaving the Subject line blank and putting subscribe in the message area, and sending it. You can do the same for the Peavler list by substituting "Peavler" for "Sallee" -- or you can let me know, and I'll personally sign you up for either or both lists as you prefer.

At your convenience, I'd appreciate your line down from Anderson and Catharine. (I descend from Raney's brother John and wife Mary Clark three different ways.) Even better would be a listing of all of Anderson and Catherine's descendants. Thanks, and now for the FGS on Raney's parents:

Reynard Chastain Sallee Mary Horn are also my ancestors, via their son Phillip Horn Sallee. I do not have proof of Reynard's parents. I don't know of any bible records, deeds or other papers to confirm his ancestors. I do know that he served in the war of 1812. There is a document where he was killed by his cousin, I believe Michael Horn. The killer was aquitted because "the devil made me do it".
