I try to figure out all the angles when doing this work and here is something else that bothers me about John & Rachel.
The Cash/Kash & McAllister families appear to have been fairly well educated and certainly not POOR. WHY would Rachel be destitute and have to ask that her children be bound out? Also I did not locate my JAMES, b. 1772 in Rockingham with Rachel & the 2 children. In Feb. 1795 James KASH [spelling used] got 318 acres in Greenbrier Co. as assignee of JAMES LACY. Kash paid the land tax in 1796 but by 1797 had reassigned it. By 6 Aug. 1799 JAMES CASH,[sic] the Lacys. Trimbles, Wilsons, etc. were taxed in Montgomery Co. KY. In 1800 CALEB KASH [sic] appeared on the Montgomery tax lists. in 1801 James owned 1 slave and Caleb owned 2 horses and a stud horse. In 1802 James had acquired 100 acres of land in Montgomery Co. In 1804 Caleb also paid tax on land. Eventually they were cut off to Floyd Co. where the tax lists are missing then to Morgan Co. where they again owned land and held offices in the new county.
From 1790 to 1795 the names of JOHN CASH & JAMES CURRY appear on the Rockingham personal property tax lists. In 1796 neither JOHN CASH nor a widow Cash appear on the Rockinham lists. BUT in 1797 CALEB CASH is listed with 1 tithable and 8 horses. Again I reiterate our Kash men were not poor. We need to discover where they got their money. Elisabeth Salyer
