First Generation

1. Samuel DURHAM was born about 1790 in place unknown.1,2 I have placed Allen W. Durham, b. 1811, and John C. Durham, b. 1817 here temporarily until I can find better evidence that Samuel Durham and wife Sarah (Unknown) were their parents. In the 1840 Census for Hart County, Kentucky, there are 2 Durham families listed: Samuel Durham and Allen Durham. John C. Durham appears to be living in the household of Samuel Durham. More research is needed.

It is interesting to note: Charles Blakey, age 3, is living in the household of Allen W. Durham and wife Lucinda in the 1850 Census for Hart County, Kentucky. There is a William Durham, age 44, listed with his family in the 1860 Census for Hart County, Kentucky, who appears in the 1850 Census for Taylor County, Kentucky living next door to a William and Mary Blakey. Also, one of the death certificates for a child of John C. Durham states that John C. Durham was born in Taylor County, Kentucky. This Durham family may have come from Taylor County, Kentucky.
