Genealogy: Past & Present

Herbert William Small was born at Ruddell's Mills in Bourbon County on November 20th, 1918, the eldest of six, reared on the family farms in Needmore and Crayton, Nicholas County, and settled in Carlisle, county seat of Nicholas County. Served in the US Army during WWII, stateside and in the Pacific Theater from 1939 thru 1945. Married Mary June Thompson January 20, 1943 and reared a family of four. Joined his father-in-law, Luther Thompson, in the floral business in 1946, now Small's Florist and Greenhouses, Carlisle, KY. Died unexpectantly at Central Baptist Hospital, Lexington, KY, May 1st, 2008, due to complications following a fall at home two days previously.

He was predeceased by his father and mother, Elva and Nona Small, brother James and Edward, and daughter Susan Lewis, wife of Joe Lewis. He was followed a month later on June 10, 2008, by his wife, Mary June Small. He is survived by two sisters, Robbie Jenkins, Indianapolis, and Peggy Harris, Milford, OH and one brother, David Small, Louisville. He is also survived by one son, John Small, Campton, KY and Arlington, TX and two daughters, June Tincher, Carlisle, KY and Cathy Mathis, Lawrenceburgh, KY.

Arising from Dad's life long interest in family history, this gallery is now one of living history, both past and present. Our lineage can be traced to George Small and John Caughey, who both fought in the Revolutionary War and, along another branch, to John and Pricilla Alden, who were among the original Pilgrams. John Caughey settled in Nicholas County as did Lottimore Hayden, an ancestor and decendent of John Alden. George Small, whose father immigrated from Germany (Schmahl) settled in Bath County in what is now Sharpsburg. His son, Moses, and many of his decendents settled in Nicholas County and later moved to Tipton, IN and Tipton, IA. A tall tree has many branches. Please explore these photographs and post comments (with your name and email address) along the way.
