My husband is descended from James Kash, b. 5 Feb. 1772, d. 7 Mar. 1851.[dates are taken from "Preacher Joe"] Nickel's]Bible. I have a photo copy the Bible that I took in 1970,
Mrs. Boyd Anderson had the bible at that time.
I have much information on the entire Kash family back to the traditional JOHN & RACHEL MC ALLISTER, however, I stopped working on them during the 1970s and began my in depth research on THE SALYER FAMLY.
At the court continued March 23, 1779:
Rachel Cash, wife of Jno. Cash, a soldier in the service of the United States from this Commonwealth, being in distressed circumstances with TWO small children, was allowed L30.
I found that in Rockingham Co. VA records; one of the children was named CALEB b, 10 Oct.1773. The other child was a girl named MARY : Monday 27 Mar. 1780 the church wardens were ordered to bind Mary Cash, dau. of John Cash to John Curry on the request of her mother.
The church warden 's bound Caleb Cash, son of John Cash at the request of his mother on 2 Nov. 1779, however, the record did not say to whom he was bound. It may have been to James Curry . The Rockingham tithable lists begining in 1788 list: James;John & Robert Curry . From 1790 through 1795 John Cash is also listed. In 1796 John Cash is no longer listed; Caleb Cash comes on the list, that is the year he became of tithable age. In 1797 Caleb is listed with 1 tithable and 8 horses. This seems to indicate that he inherited a bit of money. Perhaps John died as he no longer is on the Rockingham lists.
The problem is BURNED RECORDS. In the Index to Burned Records Deed Bk.00, p. 432 John & Robert Curry sold their land in Sept 1800.[that deed had been re-recorded after the fire] I think they came to Montgomery Co. Ky, however, there also we find burned records.
In the index to those Rockingham burned records there is listed a James McAllister et ux deed. That could indicate that Mc Allister's land was being divided. It was in Bk 000 which is no longer extant. I have much more on these people but this will give you a starting point if you care to dig into it. Elisabeth W. Salyer
