Susannah Rayburn's lineage is well documented, but her spouse, James Fielding doesn't seem to be as well documented. Would anyone know parents, siblings, birth data for the James Fielding that m:Susannah Rayburn?

Hi:

I am researching my family tree and stumbled across this thread today. As you probably already know, Susannah is the daughter of Enoch R. Rayburn & Mary Penland. Enoch's younger sister, Percilla Jane Rayburn, married Alex Penland (the guy who was an early casualty in the Underwood-Stamper War. Alex/Percilla are my great-great grandparents, and b/c a brother/sister from George Penland's offspring married a brother/sister of Henry Willis Rayburn's offspring, everyone in this tree downstream is a double 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc cousin. So, I am apparently double-4th cousins to all the Rayburns/Raybourns in Olive Hill, Carter Co., KY area of my generation.

Now to the Fielding connection. I found this while visiting my grandfather/great grandfather Penland/Pendlum gravesites at Walnut Grove Cemetery, at Upper Tygart, KY, where I was raised. I cannot readily find the reference, but I believe James Fielding's father came into Kentucky and settled in Greenup County. Among their offspring are a son, J.W. Fielding, and Owen Fielding (b. 21 Sep 1895 - d. 2 May 1964). Owen's children include Ford, Roger, Owen Patrick "Pat", Clara Alice, Myra Sue, "Dodie", Patricia, Wanda, and James R. Fielding. There are others brothers -- I believe one is named Lovell. I remember an Owen Patrick Fielding, who was one year ahead of me (born 11 Feb 1954) who I believe is recently deceased. I also remember Sonni and Butch Fielding, who were offspring of Dexter Fielding and Dora Lawson. I believe Dexter may be the offspring of Owen's brother, who was named Lovell -- no immediate birth data on him, but Dexter lives at top of what is known as New Road Hill on U.S. 60, West, about 4 miles from Olive Hill. I have been working my own family tree and have the documentation on the Rayburns back to Richard Raibone from Surrey, England, and the Penlands to Inveresk, Edinburgh, Scotland if you are interested -- family tree "Pendlum".

Regards,
