In Reply to: Kearbey - Butler County, Missouri by Michael Stephen Jackson of 34

I think I contacted you through another
forum. But, in case I didn't......
I am the youngest of 5 children born toThomas
Lafayette Kearbey (b.1895, d.1956) and Elvy
Lou (Greer) Kearbey (b.1902, d.1967). Both
of my parents were born in Poplar Bluff, Mo
but moved to Detroit, Michigan after they
were married. My father's father was Joel
East Kearbey (b.1854, d.1952) and his
grandfather was Joel Jasper Kearbey (b.1835,
d.1916). Joel Jasper's father was Thomas Lee
Kearbey (b.1800) a son of Francis Marion
Kearbey (b.1754). Francis Marion
Kearney/Kearbey left Scotland in 1772 sailing
on the ship "America" disembarking at
Jamestown, Va. He changed his name to avoid
serving as an indentured servant. He served
in the Revolutionary War along with his
brother who came to America in 1773. After
the war they went to Cherokee, N.C. where
Francis Marion married in 1777. Then went to
Tennessee and eventually to Missouri. He was
included in N. Carolina census of 1790 and
1800 as "Francis M. Kerby", resident of Surry
According to the Historical Register of
Virginians in the Revolution a Francis Kearby
served in 7CL, 14CL.
My E-mail address is
My name is Barbara (Kearbey) Fields and I live in Florida now.
